ESPN talks North vs. South, yet again doesn't even mention ISU
Someone else already posted a link to this article in another thread, but I thought I would start a new thread about this.
Obviously, we have not earned the respect that we should have by now. A win against either KU or MU in the past 2 years would have changed that.
Success brings recruits...
What I wrote before was just my quick reaction to reading the article and being left out again. Of course it probably wouldn't have been pretty if we had been mentioned. So lets leave Ivan alone for now.
Its hard to argue with what the article has to say, and I think its an important issue that needs some discussion. I don't think that the situation is hopeless. If teams in the North can win some games and have some consistent success nationally, we can convince some of those recruits to come to school up here.
Things like going down in front of the "12th Man" and kicking some serious a** last year are exactly what I'm talking about. Wins like that will help us steal some more of those Texas kids.
