Coach's make players want to come. Now we all know Ames isn't in the middle of a booming downtown or even remotely exciting nightlife however having a coach sell a player and his parents on his philosophies, playing style, work ethic and possible pro development will get their attention and have them choose to sign anywhere (even Ames). That was one of the reasons we got Fizer. He had a developed a relationship with Floyd. Timmy also sold him on the possibility of playing against the best talent out there. I remember in an interview with Fizer he said Floyd told him he knew he could play with the best but could he beat the best. If you come to ISU you have the chance to show how good you are by playing and beating the TX's and Kansas' out there. I don't see why that still can't be a selling tool. Ingenious. More reason to love what Floyd did while he was at ISU.

>>>I'm not going to list all of them, but how about Darius Gabriel, who is considered to be one of the top 5 or so players in the 2008 class. Now shut up and don't post about things you know nothing about. Or maybe, I should just say "Get real.">>>
Nice try, the reason you can't list them all is because they don't exist. I follow ISU MBB recruiting and while Gabriel did show interest, that doesn't mean they were "knocking down Wayne's door". I know you are a Wayne apologist, but please don't exaggerate his recruiting efforts. After LE left, his recruiting wasn't all that great.
