    So loyalty to your alma mater and dislike of instate schools trumps your child’s happiness, student loan debt, proximity to home and playing time potential?

    I wouldn't. I like money too much...plus it's not my decision.

    I'm happy to see Ben Jacobson catch a break. Fran has been really cleaning up on the instate mid major talent.

    Yeah, he should have went to Drake.

    This, to me, is why Drake makes more sense. It sort of feels like Drake is going to start gaining on UNI and hopefully overtaking then in the coming seasons.

    Glad you’re not my dad then. My Iowa alum father stayed completely out of my decision when i was being recruited by all 4 in state schools.

    I don't think he did anything wrong and I think he'll do great at UNI (and I'm glad we don't have to play him).

    Who knows if Bowen grew up an Iowa State fan? Lord knows that all of our previous coaches did not do a good job keeping former players invested. I do think that if I was in high school and had grown up a die hard fan of any school, I would strongly consider walking on to that school rather than going to another one. But not everyone would make that decision.

    It would be nice, though, if there were more players that grew up wanting to be Cyclones. Allen Lazard was one that picked Iowa State because he grew up loving Iowa State.

    This is one of the more absurdly stupid things I've seen on Cy Fan in a long time. You seriously would dissuade your child from going to a school they want to go to all in the name of some rivalry, which is completely non-existent as it applies to Drake and UNI?

    Awesome perspective...

    That has been becoming better, though. Remember this family?

    I'm so glad that you aren't Brock Purdy's Dad...and 1000s of others, over the years.

    I think Grill self-radicalized more than it was familial influence.

    Reading comprehension try it. I was referring to instate schools. Last time I checked Brock was from Arizona and Iowa State isn't in Arizona.

    Fair enough. I still couldn't disagree more but that's OK.

    Most of us are not helicopter parents either. We actually let our kids make decisions for their-selves. Especially at 17-18 years old

    I like your new profile picture, @UNI1ISU2.

    Very professional.
