    ...from Mizzourah's departure? Looks like they're already losing recruits. How much of an impact will this have on ISU?

    I don't think you'll see that big of an impact on us, perhaps the difference of one recruit per year at best if I had to estimate. But, I don't have numbers on how many recruits that Mizzou signs that we were also highly interested in to verify...

    It most definitely does not hurt...

    I don't think there will really be any direct benefits.

    There haven't been a lot of times lately where we just lost out to MU for a recruit and I don't know if we are in on any of their current recruits either.

    TCU joining the Big12 actually hurts ISUs chances with mid level Texas recruits since there is another BCS team in the state of Texas that they can go to. I don't think WVU joining helps us at all either. It will be interesting to see if they refocus any of their recruiting efforts.

    I wondered that in the other thread. Since MU will probably not get as many Texas players where do they look? Florida has a lot of prospects so do they start pulling away some our FLA recruits because they have that SEC tie in?

    Are the Texas players that they get out of ISU's reach to recruit?

    My hope is that some of the quality Texas recruits that may have went to Mizzou may end up at ISU now. But that's really just a hope.

    It looks like in 2011 Mizzourah had...

    (Recruits in Big 12 Footprint)
    9 Texas Recruits
    1 Oklahoma Recruit
    1 North Dakota Recruit

    (Other)
    6 Other (3 Missouri, 1 Kansas, 1 Louisiana, 1 California)

    I think the TX kids that MU would get will be redistributed amongst the other current second tier Big12 schools, TCU, aTm, and any SEC schools that start looking more into TX due to added exposure via the aTm acquisition. We "might" be able to pull a couple more kids, but I think that likelyhood is more closely linked to our futre W-L record than MU being in the conference.

    By comparison, ISU only had 6 Texas recruits in 2011.
    3 Texas kids currently in 2012. (And 5 Iowa kids!)

    I don't think losing Mizzou effects us much in recruiting. It might help just a tad, but overall we are still worse off with TCU not being in the big leagues so they have another home state to go to. Not to mention aTm going to the SEC and opening up the state more to the entire SEC which is mostly regarded as the top football conference.. now they have recruiting ties to the top football state.

    But I still think ISU will be fine. CPR has this school on the ups and that will help recruiting a lot more than what Mizzou leaving would.

    I think we may be even more worse off in Texas if the Big 12 adds a couple of schools like Louisville and Cincinnatti (teams that may compete with us directly for TX recruits). I want to go to 12, but it may hurt us a bit in TX recruiting.

    I don't think those two schools will hurt as as much as Nebraska. I really don't know what their Texas recruiting was like, but just guessing I'd say Nebraska and Colorado combined wouldn't be much worse than those two combined.. but thats just assuming players wanted to go to Nebraska. I could be way off.

    My guess is TCU stops trying to get second teir Texas kids and starts going head to head with A@M with the big boys. They only took second teir recruits because they could not compete with big 12 teams. Now they can.
    ISU might get one every couple of years that Missouri would normally get.

    I think it will be TCU getting those that Mizzou would get. While stealing a few from Texas, Tech, and aTm. Not to mention SEC schools might scoop in on those that Mizzou would have gotten.

    This staff will recruit the guys they think they can win with. I don't see what other schools will have to do with that. How many players did both Iowa State and Missouri recruit at the same time, and how did that pan out for both schools?
