    I've asked about Bo several times in other threads and nobody seems to know anything about how he has performed on the scout team. It kind of worries me considering how we are used to players legend growing on the scout team and the one guy I would expect to be hearing about we have not heard much of anything about.

    I'm also used to hearing about guys' legends grow on the scout team only to not make much of a difference the next season... so take that for what it's worth.

    You're used to that because McCarney hyped up Blythe and Meyer a ton during their RS freshmen year on the scout team. I don't remember anyone else being hyped up on the scouties and no one else since Chiz has been here.

    Does KO ring a bell? I'm not saying Chizik was the one doing the hyping but we had multiple players on the scout team last year that got hyped big time around here.

    I meant by the coaches, probably should have clarified.

    A couple months ago someone was on here saying they would be surprised if Bo ever suited up for the Cyclones...I hope that's still not the case.

    Here is to hoping Bo is what we though JJ Bass would be.

    A couple weeks ago on his call-in show, coach said he wants to see Bo become more of a power back and run over and through people and not just be an elusive type back. He said Bo is doing well but he wants to see improvement in this area.

    I really am excited for the running back position next year with ARob, Schwartz, and Bo. I would like to see AA in the gun with two running backs more often. I think there is allot you can do out of that formation, especially with a back who is as good of a receiver as ARob.

    And talking with some of the current players they are still hyping KO and Baysinger. They are also hyping Haughton as well. KO & Baysinger apparently struggle to remember all there assignments when it comes to playcalling. When they get that down, they will live upto there hype. Haughton still has high school footwork but that will be fixed also. The younger defensive linement say them three are studs so some of the hype is true.

    Hype is true when they produce on the game field.

    KO has looked near dominant in short stretches. I expect him to be VERY good by the time he is done here. Same with Haughton, he is getting by right now on pure talent, give him some time in the system and with the S&C staff and he will be solid.

    We do know that thanks to her Iowa education, she will at least learn the 50 states. Not a slam on Bo at all, just a comment on the sad state of, well... other states' education systems? The fact that people in other parts of the country are so self-centered they don't even bother to know the 50 states? I'm not sure what the reason is, but it's sad and this isn't the first time I've heard of it. There are plenty of states that I could care less about, but I at least have heard of them all, I even learned all the capitals in 5th grade.

    Sorry for the derailment, I just had to rant a little after I read the quote.

    I think he may have forgotten the sarcasm pirate.

    I was pretty happy with my experience in the Florida school system.
