Once again... either Miller choose ISU over Iowa OR... KF and Junior screwed him over royally and yanked his offer while they are still recruiting more DB's. Doing it the right way over there in IC.

Maybe little Junior Ferentz should shut his mouth when criticizing other schools and their recruiting methods. You think his daddy has told him to "shut it kid" yet? Can't believe he hired that tool. But of course, KF can't comprehend of the Iowa program ever being ran by someone other than a Ferentz. Sounds almost like Trump and Ivanka. Maybe we should start calling Brian "Ivanka"? I like it.
You’re even more upset about how this weekend went than @CyTwins is.

Deep breaths.

So is this where I throw out the word 'outlier' or no?
Sorry, nope. Not an outlier. CMC and staff just good at recognizing talent and doing the work. ISU doesn't sit around and wait for other schools to offer before offering someone. They actually go out and do the hard work and find these guys. They offer some of these 2 stars, and then they end up blowing up later.

Funny, explains all the draft picks. And it's good to know Josey Jewell isn't an outlier. Clear sign of KF and crew being good at recognizing low-star unwanted talent and doing the work.

Well, at least I see you are now admitting that either Miller choose ISU over Iowa OR Iowa yanked his offer right out from underneath him while they are still taking more DB's, which contradicts everything you've said about how Iowa recruits. Glad you finally admit it. Hopefully someday we'll hear Junior admit it too before spouting off like the child he is next time.

Iowa didn't do any work on Josey Jewell. They missed out on all their top targets that year and when they had a spot or two left at the end they offered Josey one. It's not they offered Josey over a year ahead of time.

Miller couldn’t commit to Iowa...I’ve been saying that ever since he settled for Ames.

Hahahaha. Right, so when Campbell develops a 2* it's brilliance, when it happens at Iowa, it's not. Brilliant.

If Campbell is so good at developing talent why after 2 years of working with Lazard did the guy go undrafted? That was a 4* top-10 WR recruit in the country coming into ISU.

Montgomery is an outlier

There is a difference between college and NFL. That argument is pretty stupid and you're better than that
