    Or you never had any inside info to begin with and make **** up for attention. Given you're the most prolific troll on this forum I'll go with option #2.

    I was shocked when they pulled his offer. I thought he had a committable offer

    maybe yeah but trust me... the fans will be way more upset about this than the coaches are and they’re the ones that actually invested time and money into this.

    ISU will be active on the mid year transfer market and in all likelihood will land a player better than Xavier, albeit a shorter cyclone career than he would’ve had.

    All joking aside I'm sorry guys. The puppet masters in his recruitment played us. There was extreme confidence with him for months. Not the first time it's happened to ISU and won't be the last

    Couldn't agree more. I'd be mad if I were them though because of how it went down

    Our staff was played, but he's going to play for Fran. He's really the loser in all this.

    Because of the nature of recruiting, the staff has to be a good sport about it, but this did harm recruiting other options I assume.

    As, as far as I could see, people were always conning each other to get what they wanted. We even con ourselves. We talk ourselves into things. We sell ourselves things we maybe don't even need or want by dressing them up. We leave out the risk.

    We leave out the ugly truth.

    Pay attention to that because we’re all conning ourselves in one way or another just to get through life.

    Has Iowa State ever gotten a recruit that had a 50+ page thread dedicated to them on CF?

    That's it as far as bigs. So why did Anderson leave if Foster isn't coming? That's what's been bugging me.

    Ah yes, THT especially. I'm just having flashbacks to Diallo and Vaughn I guess.

    He is an 18 year old choosing where he is going to play a game.

    Why is that a problem...?

    That's 4/13 of the roster. That's fine.

    Sounds like Anderson just wasn't good enough to contribute... So he packed his bags. Foster or not, he was probably getting recruited over soon.

    Math issues??? Jacobson being a Senior makes three. That was the entire point four is bare minimum regardless of how bad he is.

    @CyTwins - are you saying the dad told staff he was coming to ISU or that dad is pushing Foster to Iowa? Or both?
