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.
