    Could it also be, the staff just no longer thinks he is that good? Or just doesn't see him as the right fit for what they are looking for?

    He's not good enough to take a risk on

    Can't wait for him to go to UNC so Oklahoma State will have hired his brother for nothing.

    Talley was more than a warm body, although could not get on the same page as the staff.

    I hope it turns out we’re sitting as well with other options as it seems. I think we sign two more this fall if we can get commitments from guys like Foster, Grant-Foster, or Walton.

    "Good" Lard and "good" Talley were both pretty nifty players.

    Beverly and Brase were desperation warm bodies.

    But we knew the risks with all of them -- discipline, poor grades, injury, etc. -- all of that. Being healthy and available is a skill and part of your allure (or lack) as a player.

    We are Iowa State and we are always going to need to take some risks, but we are at a place right now where we do not have to do that as much as we might normally.

    We were told last year that they had better chemistry than the year prior. Chemistry talk is worthless in early October. How this team handles wins and losses will tell us what we need to know.

    I'm excited for the team but it's not hard to ignore fluff.

    Maybe they'll be wrong, but it feels like too many people picking Iowa for there not to be some substance to it.

    If he picks Iowa I can at least come here and watch the fun. Certainly not worth it but will be entertaining. A lot of people are very confident that it's ISU, for some reason. Hope it's insider info.

    Those picks were all made 1-2 years ago. Although I am sure nothing has changed in the last 2 years that would influence the decision of an 18 year old.

    I am aware of when the picks were made. I'm also aware of some of their more recent comments about their picks.

    Foster to Iowa would suck but nothing like HB. If that were to happen, it'd be great seeing the Hawk fans flip flop on him, since he cooled on Iowa, most Hawk fans I know are pretending he's just not that great.

    Where did you see this?
    Bossi hasn't tweeted anything about Foster since January.

    I remember the conversation early in the season last year was about how good our chemistry was. I remember CW says on a podcast that watching them play was "joyous."

    That was before Lindell came back, however, and some losses piled up.

    Just what's been posted on 247. Jerry Meyer and Bock (Hawkeye247) still feel good about their picks and now Bossi picking Iowa as well.
