    Good for Bill. It shows how far our program has come. Before Bill Finnley came to town we were always in the basement.

    Our women's program, with its support, should be able to pull in this caliber of player. Hoping they come our way!

    I agree. There's no reason why our program doesn't deserve to try and bring in some of the best. BF is an amazing coach, you're coming to a team that pretty consistently can make a run in the NCAA tournament, and you're coming to a place that supports its women's team. 4th in the nation in attendance!

    According to ESPN on the link, ISU was founded in 1788 (only 12 years after the Declaration of Independence). Does that make us the oldest university in the country? Hell Iowa didn't even become a state until 1846; that's incredible! They were only 70 years off. :biggrin:

    First land grant university, anyway. (lol; 1862 act, iirc.)

    William & Mary goes way back, I believe. As does Hah-vard, too, I think. (No doubt several others also.) Using the terms college and university interchangeably?

    Wasn't ISU one of the first institutions of higher learning established under the land grant act (signed by A. Lincoln, I believe)? Fuzzy memory here.

    ISU was the first institution to take advantage of the Morril (Land Grant) Act.

    Looks like on Espn's site, Tinkle no longer has ISU on her radar. Let's hope for Prins....We really could use her size.

    On ouinsider.com, people seem pretty confident that Tinkle is still considering Oklahoma, and they aren't listed either. Seems that they are only showing a max of 5 schools for each player, and last we knew she was considering around 10. I'm not putting much stock in the fact that ISU isn't listed there until I hear otherwise.

    YCN at hoopscoop says:

    Additionally, Tinkle is on the same USA U18 team for which Fennelly is acting as assistant coach. That team is currently playing in the FIBA Americas U18 championship, so Fennelly is getting some quality time with Tinkle right now.

    I see the U18 national team won the gold medal. Fennelly is one of the assistant coaches and hopefully his time with Joslyn pays off. We need a good post game and like you have said Weiben, Ross, Anderson, and Nisleit will all be graduating.

    bill fennelly has done a great job with the girl's basketball program.he has increased his recruiting scope to more than just iowa and minnesota and that has helped the quality of his program.

    Where does the 1862 number come from? I was pretty sure the grant was made in 1858.
