    I'm not sure how you can sit there and say how great Iowa's 2018 class is and then mock Iowa State, who happens to be sitting 10 spots higher in 247's class rankings? AND that with a kicker and a punter pulling our number down!

    The state knows who the flagship University is and funds it accordingly.

    I think anyone talking about recruiting rankings nearly a year away from signing day is being premature. Do either school even have 25% of their expected commitment numbers? (and that's without even one decommit)

    Iowa's average player rating is 2 points higher.

    The first chance for prospects to sign is 7 months away.

    Iowa State is probably sitting right at 25%, the 2018 class is expected to be a small class.

    I was simply pointing out that if Iowa's 2018 class is looking bright, then Iowa States is too. Absolutely a lot can happen between now and signing day.

    Remove the kicker and punter and the classes are literally a push but you already knew that.

    Why remove the kicker and punter? They either are recruits that will take up a scholarship or they won't and are walk-on's.

    Why are you removing players from your class? Thats not how it works.

    The recruiting services don't evaluate and assign rankings to kickers and punters the same way the do with all of the other positions. All I know is that we got two good specialists but unfortunately they drag your number down. I appreciate how you didn't throw out "cherry picking" this time there HistoricAmes.

    @TheJackWePack5 , you dont think Downing will be a 3 year starter for ISU? I see you disagreed with my post stating that.

    That was a mistake. I think he certainly could be.

    Sounds like Hawkeye fans are starting to get worried about #ThoseGuysInAmes

    I see you're still butthurt about losing the Downing sweepstakes. I would have been upset too if he chose Iowa instead just because he's so talented

    Why would Iowa fans be worried about the 3rd best program in the state?

    Do you have a laugh track at home that plays every time you post?
