    Help is coming!

    After watching the Spring game where ISU looked pretty good, I also have to look at the help that is on the way. These guys are all JUCO's..if even half pan out, it can dramatically improve an already positive outlook:
    Jamaca Bass RB
    Allen Bell CB
    Michael Bibbs LB
    Joe Blaes OL (already here)
    Doug Dedrick OL
    Colin Franklin TE
    Wallace Franklin WR
    Christopher Lyle DE
    Joe McMahon OL
    Michael Tate DT
    Chris Weir DT
    Alex Alverez OG
    This would give us:
    1-four star running back
    5-offensive linemen
    1-Wide Receiver
    1-Defensive Back
    3-defensive linemen
    1-linebacker
    All are probably capable of providing immediate help.

    I appreciate the correction...McMahon didn't last long did he?

    No he didnt, I think he was a big fish in a little pond at his JUCO, and got here and everyone was as good or better than him and he didnt like it.

    Re: Help is coming!

    Gotta think we'll gain some efficiency on both offensive and defensive line. At least some size coming in.

    Dedrick is going to make an immediate impact. It just remains to be seen if it will be good or bad.

    Re: Help is coming!

    Bibbs might have to play SS. We need DB's. Bell will help, and the DL should get a lot of help from these guys. I hope one or two of the freshmen OL coming in are ready to get some playing time.

    I laughed reading that, but we need confidence in this program. Iowa State doesn't have to settle for average and we have to realize that. I'm excited for JJ.

    Wow - did you copy that directly? If so, is he going to even be eligible? If not, you sure made him look bad...

    I'm not buying a single one of those 40 times. Doesn't mean they aren't fast though.
