    Conference realignment and current recruitss

    Does all this talk about ISU getting left in the dust hurt our current recruiting efforts? I'm talking about all sports but didn't know where else to put this. Mods, feel free to move or merge if there's already a discussion about this.

    Yes, no, maybe, not really sure.. I think this pretty much covers it.
    You're welcome.

    So, nobody is worried that recruits are going to see this stuff about ISU going to the [insert crappy conference here] conference and consider other options?

    Re: Conference realignment and current recruitss

    Yeah, maybe but I really don't think it is a MAJOR concern. It certainly doesn't help, but I don't think there are people out there saying "I would commit to ISU right now but I want to see how this whole thing works out first". All in all, I don't think it does much but it would be best to get it behind us (not only for us, but for college sports in general!)


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    The only thing we know for sure is Iowa State is in the Big 12. Now, if people want to make themselves crazy by saying the Big 12 is going to fall apart and Iowa State will be left to some little conference so be it. I have complete faith that Iowa State will be in the Big 12 and that the Big 12 will be just fine.

    I am. It's inevitable. If any of our targets hav interest from Big 10 schools the coaches will negative recruit. A Big 10 school knows that it will be in the Big 10.

    I think it kills Mizzou and Nebraska with Texas recruits, might open some doors for ISU.

    Re: Conference realignment and current recruitss

    Seriously? How can you not think this is bad? If you had two offers on the table, one from a school guaranteed to play in the Big 10/11/14/16 and one from a school who may or may not be playing in the Mountain West, which would you chose? Keep in mind, you are an arrogant 17 year old kid who has never been humbled in your life and you are completely certain you will be a first round draft pick....

    It would reduce, but not kill Texas recruiting for NU & MU. Minnesota is at more of a disadvantage and they typically sign 3 or 4 a year from Texas.

    He probably figured that he would fit in well at BYU because he's Mormon...

    Rational thought really has no place in this discussion...please move along.
