    I knew Harbaugh was weird, but wanting to stop at a recruits house at midnight for a sleep over? WTF.

    He's like Martin Short's character from the movie "Pure Luck."

    That's an incredible amount of pressure from the bigger schools. Good for him on sticking with what he believed.

    I knew Chase was a big get, but I didn't realize how big. What a stud, we may have a new leader in the clubhouse in a year...

    It will be awesome seeing a 3 or 4 wide set of 6'6 Allen, 6'6 Butler, 6'5 Lazard, and 6'4 Eaton.

    Good luck DB's.

    Never realized how many schools were after him, or the Jim wanted to sleepover

    One of the better articles on an ISU player I've seen, especially from ESPN. Does the Register still do these types of stories, or are they mostly reporting two-day-old news from CF?

    Good luck is right especially when Jones blows the top off the coverage with his speed.

    This kid if he stays healthy will be the best TE we have ever had.

    I also liked the RB's getting a few passes out of the backfield last year.

    First time I remember feeling like the excitement for the receiving core was at least legit.

    Read this article when ESPN pushed it to my phone this afternoon. What a great article, and an even better story promoting Allen and ISU.

    I sent the link to a UT buddy of mine, and he laughed and said he already read it and was just about to send it to me. He enjoyed it as well (I'm slowly turning him into a closet Cyclone fan).

    No joke. "Hey, I'd like to stop by your house around midnight, we can have a slumber party, it's OK, my parents know I'm coming over. I broke into Dad's liquor cabinet, we'll have a great time."
