    Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    Haven't seen this posted yet...

    http://mbd.scout.com/mb.aspx?s=171&f=2550&t=5896736

    Just verifies the importance of keeping T.J. on the new staff.

    Another interesting note was that Jordan has been contacted by Washington State, Oregon State, and Pacific.

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    I don't know if I believe the being contacted by the schools. He has signed a LOI which is still binding to Iowa State.

    If I understand the procedure, once you sign that LOI schools can't contact you or recruit you.

    Edit: just saw that it was his coach not him who was contacted.

    If he is being contacted by other schools without receiving a release from an loi that is tampering and a ncaa no-no.

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    I would take that as the coaches at Oregon State, Wash State and Pacific have called Jordan's AAU coach, high school coach, or someone who is in he loop with Jordan's recruitment.

    Easy to get around this regulation - simply make contact through either the high school coach or the AAU coach.

    Think of this kid's HS coach, AAU coach, etc as Gary Thompson in this situation. There are ways to show interest without permission.

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    Talked to his high school coach earlier. He was going to have Jordan call me later. Here's a quote.

    “I spoke with him yesterday about it. Obviously, he is concerned. I think that ultimately, he wants to be a Cyclone. That’s something that he’ll have to tell you because I don’t know."

    How about we hire a new coach first. Then these kids can figure out what they want to do.

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    Completely natural and expected for these kids to be going through a whirlwind of emotions. And then on top of it, people are frequently calling them (and their coaches/family) asking what they think about it, what they are going to do, etc.

    Look, these kids just found out the coach they committed to playing for has left. They're still processing it and they're still kids! I know everyone wants to know what they are thinking and plan to do - but most of them don't even know right now and that's about the best soundbite we're going to get.

    And then people will twist "I don't know" or "I'll explore my options" (which is 100% fair) into the kid being indecisive, immature and/or making a knee-jerk reaction.

    The next 2-4 years of their lives just got significantly changed from their perspective, that's a huge deal for 17-20 year olds - leave 'em alone!

    150 years ago 17-20 year olds were already married, had a couple of children, and were farming a couple of acres of farmland - what a bunch of babies...

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    I don't understand a lot of these players. They act crushed when there coach leaves. However they all talk about the NBA where coaches spend about 2 years at each job.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Money cures all ails. When you're getting paid regardless of who is the coach or how the team is doing, it's not nearly as big of a deal.

    Unless you play at USC or Kentucky you aren't making millions in college like you do in the NBA.

    Re: Jordan Railey Update (CSR)

    Look, I like all the work that Coach Otz has done here for the Cyclones, but to keep him around with a new coach just to keep they current recruits commited to ISU is crazy. For one, he's missed on just as many recruits as he's brought in here. Maybe the new coach doesn't want to be hampered by scholarship players that either aren't good or don't fit his system. Second, maybe the new head coach wants assistants with him that he knows and are fully onboard with his system. If the new head coach thinks that TJ fits those criteria and TJ still wants to be here, then fine, he can stay, but to say he must stay here just because of a few recruits, in my mind, is crazy.


    ...Straight going donkey...

    Yup. Just another example of what a mess this generation is.
