    Risky Recruit

    OK sports fans. Your a head coach. Do you want to give a scholarship to a kid who physically attacks his high school coach because he was kicked off the team?

    Can't see a good reason why.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Reminds me of that Ames kid (Spencer Cruise) who body slammed a cop and took his Taser.

    But he was kicked off the baseball team and attacked the baseball coach, it has nothing to do with football so I would be ok with it.

    You don't see anything wrong with this? Don't have such a narrow view.

    Re: Risky Recruit

    Why is this even pertinent? Has it been an issue for ISU in the past? Is this an ISU recruit? At some point, I am sure ISU has recruited players with questionable character. Let the process occur and don't deal with hypotheticals.

    I'd take this lad and put him on the wrestling team with Jackson...fun to see what would happen if he decided to take on a coach again.

    Re: Risky Recruit

    I would take him. I used to live in Redlands and sports is year round for these kids. The kid may have a temper and he just lost it. Yet he did not rape anyone, steal something, or show up with drugs in his car. He made a mistake anmd he regrets it.
