They show up on the news every so often.
I'll disagree with that but hopefully he's around a lot longer so we can see
The last time this guy was sober, the Hawks were in their early 80s heyday!
Two 4 stars and one 3 star.
The older I get the better I was...
Ah thought Darius was a 4 star.
Well then I will add Cameron Lard as an incoming 4-star RS Fresh then. http://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/sports/college/iowa-state/basketball-mens/2017/01/19/cameron-lard-fine-not-playing/96791364/
Either way, 3 4-stars will be joining the team next fall and 4 more unknown players.
To say Iowa's roster is much better than ISU's going forward is ignorant.
Lard was a 3 star as well.
True, think espn had him at a 4 though: http://www.espn.com/college-sports/basketball/recruiting/player/_/id/199177/cameron-lard
haha, you use ESPN for recruiting?
Not sure why every single article says he's a 4 star according 247 then.
With all that said, why again is Iowa's roster much better going forward than ISU's?
Well to start with, ISU has 4 rides open to fill. At this point Iowa's roster is better.
Because the coaches kid is coming to play. That always works out well.
Because they had **** for talent and had to play mostly freshman in year 7. They can only get better from here!
That same talent that smoked your Cyclones?
Yep, the same talent. Congrats on the victory.
When I went to look to see how many years Alford coached, I saw iowa was kicked out of the big ten once. I definitely say that's doing things right.
"To start with"
Do you have a list of reasons?
Please, entertain me and list all the reasons.

I think I would prefer to be in ISU's position, with a more talented smaller roster. The ability to add talent now, or get some for the future. Iowa's roster will only get better by their growth. ISUs has the ability to get better by adding players.
Also of note, Iowa will have no senior that is worth a **** next year. ISU has Donovan Jackson.
Other notes, Young was a 0.8648 rating, he has already proven he can play at the B12 level. I don't know Iowa's roster well enough to know if guys are playing above their rating. Would guess a couple did since they approached getting to the Tourney with 6 freshman on the roster.
The 1900s were a bummer time for ISU. Remember your last football conference title in 1912?
Oh, must not be the "hip/cool" thing to do. My bad
