    Talking Hawks - tough time recruiting against coach-less Princeton & SLU

    I know this might be a tad bit off-topic but oh well...

    Does anybody else find it extremely humorous that the Hawk faithful are talking about Jeff Peterson as their only hope for a decent recruiting class for next year AND that they're having a tough time beating St Louis & Princeton at recruiting the kid when neither of those schools even has a head coach right now?

    And you thought we had a tough time last year ;)


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: Hawks - tough time recruiting against coach less Princeton & St Louis

    I really don't follow their recruiting. But I always enjoy hearing that they are struggling!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Sounds like Tyler Smith may be on his way out the door as well. They'll be in a similar situation as us last year. Trying to scrape together a class at the last minute.

    I don't know how ISU fans can say anything about superior recruiting for a "short notice" class. If Mike Taylor is gone, McD went 1 for 4 on "his" spring recruits last year.

    I doubt Lickliter will have much to brag about in this spring's class either.

    Both programs have a long ways to go at this point.

    McD went 1 for 4
    Actually 2-5

    He kept C Johnson
    He got Wesley Johnson
    Lost Cory Mac
    Lost Dodie (still no word that it's official yet)
    Mike Taylor (currently Stealing your car)

    You're 100% correct but we can still have fun can't we

    Of course we can, if Smith leaves the hawks they are going to be in bad, bad shape. Tony Freeman as your number one threat is not exactly scary to the opponents.

    Wes Johnson is worth more than Dodie, CMac and MT combined.

    I highly doubt Lickitup can get a WJ kind of player at this point in time.

    Re: Hawks - tough time recruiting against coach-less Princeton & SLU

    It will be very interesting to see where both programs are in 2 to 3 years. McD has had a year headstart, but ISU was probably a bit more wiped out in terms of talent in the program at this same time last spring.

    Nevertheless, Iowa's cupboard is not exactly full. I think both teams are facing another year of no NCAA tourament.

    Cory Johnson was not a McD recruit. So I still stick with the 1 for 4 on his spring signees. The "one" is pretty darn good though.

    Absolutely agree with you. Prepare for all the, Taylor was the only guy who could create something, garbage.

    Re: Hawks - tough time recruiting against coach-less Princeton & SLU

    This is quite amusing, but they are simply a year behind us is everything. Jon Millers essay on how good they have been in the past and how coaches always seem to leave on a bad note with Iowa fans is quite telling.

    The mighty have fallen and it's pretty hard now for Iowa to continue to say that they have the basketball "tradition" in that town. The balance between the schools has been shifting over the last 25 years.

    Their new coach looks good and he offers a huge attitude improvement over what they had. The closets bare however and it's going to take time.

    But...pressure is on to do better than Alfords record at Iowa. They won't have much patience, or listen to excuses.
