    Don't know who I want to win the Iowa/TCU game. We have to recruit against both. The coaching could well favor the Froggers, so may be better for us if they come up short. This one just smells bad.

    I wouldn't say ISU and Iowa recruit against each other. We only have a couple of instances of Fran and Steve going head to head for recruits. Donovan is the only recent one I can think of perhaps Charlie Moore who went to Cal. Dixon vs Prohm in recruiting is much more competative as TCU recruits at a higher level and have went after the same targets (Kasongo/Fisher).

    As for that being a win being a recruiting point for either TCU or Iowa vs ISU.

    ISU has much higher rated talent at every position except Cook.

    I am mostly concerned about post play. Young has added some post defense, but almost no offense at all. Iowa seems to have 3 guys that can play in there, and all of them look serviceable or better. Other than Young I don't see a lot of options at this point in time.

    Young will be better than any of Iowa's, and I like their guys. Lard will be a good one, too. I do wish we had Pemsl. I wonder if he'll leave if he has to play behind a walkon.

    I doubt Young will be close to what Cook will be. Young got minutes because ISU didn't have any interior options. Young wouldn't have gotten minutes at Iowa, or on nearly any other Big12 team.

    I think you underestimate Young. Don't forget that he spent the first half of the season recovering from a broken hand. Rough start for a true freshman. He has not shot a lot because the team has a lot of other guys that can score right now. I doubt he is going to be great, but the guy could shoot from the outside in HS.

    I've watch parts of several ISU games an seen a few full games. Young doesn't have anywhere near the potential of Cook. It isn't a slight to Young, he might be a nice player, but Cook was recruited by tons of school and was a top 75ish guy for a reasons.

    I don't disagree, but to say he is gonna be better than Cook is strictly a hope and really has no basis in reality right now.

    He's starting as a true freshman going against elite competition in the Big 12 and holding his own very well.

    But yeah, he wouldn't see the floor at Iowa or any other Big12 school. Lol!!

    Young is twice as good of a defender already than what Cook is. Not even close.

    Young is limited offensively right now, but that will change.

    Which translates to you not understanding his role on the team.

    Don't get me wrong--Cook's a nice player and Young's handle needs work, but still, those stats don't tell the story of what his role is on this particular team.

    Yeah, because the fate of Isu depends on how much he scores. Smh. He's doing what he's expected to do within the offense.

    What are his stats since he began starting and playing a lot more?

    I bet those stats include the first half of the Big 12 also when he didn't play right? Way to cherry pick averages.
