    Is anyone else worried about a bunch of last years recruiting class say "F" this and transferring closer to home?

    No. They (unlike you) understand that football is a game of ups and downs, and every team not named Alabama has ****** years.

    It's a fair question I think? Maybe people like me don't remember the 1-11 Alabama teams all that well.

    If anyone transfers so be it. It just shows they aren't mentally tough imo.

    So all the incoming transfers we've has in FB and notably MBB have been mentally weak?

    No but if they just up and leave because they were on a bad team they are. Most players transfer because they aren't happy with the type of system they are in. I can understand that. But if they transfer because of the lone reason of losing then yes.

    No, primarily because of redshirting. They'd lose a year of eligibility to transfer now.

    Why worry about it I can't change it and players dont transfer from football programs very often.

    If Iowa State has a down year (less than 4 wins) would that change your decision to be a Cyclone?
    No

    Not until now. Because you know the C.F. message boards have a profound influence on the lives of today's high school and college athletes. Way to go.

    There's got to be a bunch of freshmen that redshirted that probably feel they can help this team immediately next year, so I'd say i don't expect much to occur.

    Sure why wouldn't they. Could walk on at Alabama, Oregon, Ohio State, makes sense, very possible.

    Some people here just won't be happy unless isu fails. No recruit or player has even hinted about leaving so why even bring it up? Take a step back from the gun and sleep it off
