    Another recruiting MISS

    I just saw on rivals that forward Oto Osenieks was high interest in Minnesota and low interest in all the other schools that were recruiting him including Iowa State. One of our top 5 targets. Imagine that, another miss!

    Yep, another one. I don't think he has been a priority for very long. We probably started off recruiting him behind.


    It's all snark from here on out

    No matter what anyone says...this website is hurting our recruiting. It's not the only thing but I can promise you it is substantial.

    And your solution is......ban all negative comments or shut the site?

    The 15 win a year, 11 in non conference, lack of post season experience, numerous transfers, transfer of staff, probably does carry less weight than the gunslingers on this website.

    I agree and those that continue to gripe are creating a self fulfilling prophecy.

    I guess that must be what they want. Keep digging the hole deeper guys.

    Re: Another recruiting MISS

    Why is the message board hurting our recruiting? because it is telling the truth as opposed to whatever snake oil McD and JP are selling them?

    No, it isn't, but you go with whatever makes you feel better.

    You know, most people posting on here could care less, they just hate McD and JP's guts. They want ISU to fail and fail badly.

    Some fans.

    The fact is, this is why most ADs make the move before their coach is a lame duck. Because its really hard for a lame duck coach who has lost their entire fan base to recruit. But apparently we don't have the money, so here we are.

    Of course, Gmac was whiffing on recruits and losing players long before the fan base gave up on him.

    Have to agree. This website makes Cyclone nation look like a bunch of whiny *******.

    Sad, but true... I think there are 'FANS' on here, which all full of negativity and borderline hate towards these individuals, maybe still from where they came from previously...

    PLEASE ISU FANS, Support YOUR team, Support YOUR coach and Support our recruits!!!
    WE Need some positive thinking here.

    Used to be said --- if you can't say anything good, don't say anything....
    Maybe at least we should say, if it's negative, say it once to get it off your chest, then go back to supporting your team???

    You don't think the 22 players leaving early has anything to do about it?

    You couldn't be any more wrong and I'm assuming you don't even got to other schools boards. If that was even remotely close to a "substantial" reason why we are missing on recruits, then recruits would be pretty much going to schools who did not have a message board. This stuff happens EVERYWHERE, and the "negative" comments on this site do not even come close to what you read on other sites. The KU board the week after they lost to UNI was way worse than just about anything I have ever read on here. North Carolinas board was much worse than CF, and they brought in the #1 recruiting class...
