    Maybe he toured the new facility and now he's sold

    I can't see it being a good sign.

    He will make his decision after all his visits, and Iowa State's is last, which I like.

    we have pretty much known that he is not coming here, but some people still like to keep the hope up i guess

    I think he's saying he realizes he'll see what he needs to see by the end of Fall and be able to make a decision. I don't think it hurt or helped our chances.

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

    I think we have a good shot. That is all.

    I can't imagine 2 months from now when this is all over. What will the internet and CF be like?

    We'll be fine either way. He won't be in college that long. Just don't get to KANSAS.

    I imagine that would greatly depend on what he decides.

    I do. If one of his priorities is a chance to win big, I think he would have seen that realized in the performance and success of this year's team. I mean, if he signs elsewhere, it's not like he can opt out of his LOI next April after we go 30-5. :wink:

    I think it would have helped had he watched us play a season with a full roster of returning players. Other than that I don't think it helps or hurts.

    If HB is a "one and done player" there is no reason (IMO) that he shouldn't go to Iowa State (why move halfway across the country to play one season?)

    I think this is good news for us:
    Where has he taken the most unofficial visits? Here, of course!

    To win a national title? To fraternize with the likes of MJ? Need I go on?
