    Iowa and UNI have also had much more stability on their staffs and have made recruiting Iowa a priority while Iowa State has decided to go outside. Its all in the philosophy of building a program. Neither is right or wrong, it's perspective.

    Plus, your examples are pretty bad. Wieskamp was going to Iowa no matter what from the time he was 5 years old and Green's dad has been on staff at UNI for most of the last 20 years. It wouldn't have been a good use of resources for Iowa State to throw more at those two then they did.

    We had a realistic shot at Green actually. Iowa didn't even want Born which is all you need to know

    No kidding... is there a way to block a specific thread?

    This one is going to be popping up for the next 4 years with nothing new to add superseding worthy topics. Better off just avoiding it all together.

    At least retread threads like Malou and Pelle had ISU offers and were reasonable what if's...

    Iowa’s been some form of jacked up Barnstormer team for about 25 years.

    Not opening it should work. Perhaps the thread title was confusing the first dozens of times you clicked on it, but by now you should have caught on.

    Yes, some of it is recruiting philosophy- and I’m glad IA has what you call stability in Fran. Maybe some of Prohm’s philosophy comes from knowing they won’t get a foot in the door with those kids?
    As for my examples, I never said ISU should have or not have recruited Green or JW- I just said they are the only two that would have been impact players at ISU.

    Green’s final three were UNI, ISU, and UVA.

    Exactly- that was my point- if Fran is stability, that’s good for ISU!
