    Wow. Just...wow.

    Of course, the rest of the paragraph is CPR saying that Irving is really, really green--but I'm good with that. :wink:

    He's should be an All-American and huge name for ISU football

    CPR and his staff seem to be doing an incredible job of identifying and landing those undiscovered, overlooked nuggets, from Klein and Knott to Irving, a couple of his classmates, and a couple of the guys in this most recent signing class.

    I'm happy with that!

    Absolutely. But his potential is....Wow! I'm excited about that too.

    I'm worried Irving won't really come into his own until his Senior year and then he will be gone too quickly. I want at least 2 years of domination from the big guy.

    Sigh. Would you rather he "came into his own" after he left ISU--as Reggie Hayward did?

    He's already ahead of Reggie's curve.

    So is the reason we always see pictures of Barnett and never see pictures of Jantz and always see quotes from Barnett but never see quotes from Jantz because Jantz has already lost out, because only Barnett gives interviews, or because of something else?

    Perhaps the reason is that you haven't been looking or listening in the right place?

    Especially since CPR said Tuesday that he wouldn't decide before the Fall...

    I'm well aware of what CPR said, friend.

    Perhaps Cyclone Fanatic is the wrong place to look for such information.

    no he is not. Reggie was on the field a bunch his freshmen year, much much more than the little exposure to live action that Irving had. IMO, we should redshirt him. He obviously needs that extra year from lack of overall football experience.

    All I want to know is who is doing better: Jantz or Barnett. So curious.

    Reggie also played on a 1-10 team. There was no one in front of him on the depth chart.

    You're reading into things. Steele has been on our front page plenty of times. Last Saturday Steele wasn't available to interview. Today I was interviewing Jared and Steele was gone by the time I got done. Simple as that. Believe what you want though.

    I'm assuming that Steele was called away to take care of some kind of trouble in Metropolis. :smile:

    We are a free website that produced four pieces of content from one spring scrimmage today. If that is not enough then perhaps you should be looking elsewhere.

    And where would the "right" place be exactly?

    If that were not enough, then I would.

    Please read the comment in context. I posted a legitimate question which posed a number of potential alternative reasons why there don't seem to be quotes from Steele Jantz or pictures of Steele Jantz in recent reports about the football team. The poster I was responding to suggested that perhaps I wasn't looking in the right place. My response was directed at his suggestion.

    Luckily I see you are on the scene, Mr. CW. Are you able to answer the original question posed (by which I mean are you at liberty to discuss it?). Perhaps Jantz isn't giving interviews. I honestly don't know and I was curious.

    OK NOW I SEE YOUR RESPONSE ABOVE. Thank you.

    That was actually what I was suggesting. Aclone told me I wasn't looking in the right place. If not on Cyclone Fanatic then where should I go? I guess it is Jimlad time.
