    Go back to being a senior in High School and you are the #1 recruit in the country in whatever sport you want.

    You are not allowed to go to ISU just to keep the answers different. Where do you go and why? (And what sport)

    I'd be an RGIII style quarterback and I'd go to Alabama. My goal would be win four national championships before going pro. Yes I would stay four years just for the legend of it all.

    Football and Miami, no contest!!! Why? It's the U, and I grew up watching them play with their cocky swagger and I loved it.

    Stanford - any sport. ...Actually, decathlon because I'd have a rock-hard body to go with my incredible mind and I would date Penelope Cruz.

    I'd go to play football (QB) for Auburn so I could play for Chizik....oh wait.

    Seriously though, Stanford is an amazing school and I would go there in a heart beat. Albert Bandura still teaches there and it would be awesome to listen to his lectures. I don't care what sport. I would be sold on Stanford the minute they called.

    If I follow the instructions and "go back to being a senior in High School" then the answer is quite simple: whichever school offers the best coeds to accompany me on my visit.

    Me as an 18 year-old: pootytang > winning NCs and going pro.

    I can see the logic in this post and agree.

    Me at 28: "Stanford, because Bandura is there and I canz be smartz"

    Me at 18: "I like girls."

    Running back at Texas.

    Austin is a great city with hot girls and chances of going pro if the starting running back at Texas is almost 100%!

    Obviously, it's hard to know how I would react to that but I'm not a huge attention person and I think I would actually go somewhere like ISU where you aren't necessarily such a big deal. That doesn't make sense because it would be a huge deal but I would rather carve my own path sort of like RG3. Maybe somewhere like South FLorida or something like that. High school me probably would have done the Michigan thing. I would probably want to be a QB or linebacker.

    I'd play for a coach I'd love to play for. Since isu is off the market, I'd go somewhere warm.
    Maybe south Carolina

    Dartmouth basketball. Terrible program with 13 wins in the last three years. But great academics, party atmosphere, and the ability to be the greatest. A real chance to see if you can singlehandedly turn a team around and how far that talent can go. I like underdog challenges like that.

    If I didn't care about D1: Grinnell basketball, because that system with No. 1 talent would be the most fun you could have as a college athlete.
