    Because 26 and 34 is such a huge gap according to 247.

    So you'd agree that there isn't a huge gap in basketball recruiting? Last year it was isu 38 iowa 39.

    That doesn't include transfers so apples to oranges

    fact is, the numbers don't lie. iowa and isu are basically a wash on the recruiting trail in bbaall.

    The Chandler kid was really nice for ISU. Light years better than the rest of their class. Congrats to CMC. Big get for that program.

    Not bad. He'd be the #9 guy on Iowa's recruit list. But not bad. Much more impressed with Chandler. Hope you guys can hang on to him.

    Which is another glowing endorsement for Fran. Recruit on lar with ISU, but still suck.

    While I don't disagree looking at a snapshot, you're basically comparing last year's class since this year's is far from complete. I don't know that you can draw any conclusions on Prohm's recruiting by looking at a class where he just got the job in June. We all know what Fran can do on the trail.

    9/10? Lol. I look at that class and see two big time recruits. And one is a legacy...same as ISU getting Lazard. The rest are on par with what ISU has committed. Morgan has a better offer list than most of that class. To each his own though. Everyone has the right to believe their diamonds in the rough are underrated. ISU fans do the same.

    Peyton Mansell? Sounds like a Heisman winner in the making.

    I think he is looking at the composite rankings and if you do that he would be 8th or 9th in Iowa's class.

    But no doubt that ISU has done much better on the recruiting trail so far. The key will always be winning though and what those kids do once they get to campus.

    The fact that ISU's first year coaching staff is as close to Iowa's 19th year coach says a lot about both. Big time recruits that aren't legacies know they aren't going to play big time football in the watered down big 10.

    I want to make like a clever "hearing the footsteps" post but we regularly beat you now even with crappy coaching and bad recruiting by Big 12 standards, so I'm just going to tap you on the shoulder and say "hey".
