Would Ferentz fit with this title since he took a verbal from Ellington after he verballed to ISU?
He de-committed from ISU then committed to Iowa after a while. Iowa didn't "poach" from anybody. However, that doesn't mean that what Ellington and Ford are doing is any better. I said it when Ellington verballed to Iowa, and when Ford wavered, I'm not a big fan of de-committing.
When another coach is to blame, however is when a player is currently a solid verbal, and they continue to recruit them and convince them to change their minds. In this case, both Ellington and Ford did this.

I think that his silence indicates he is thinking about this opportunity more than we think. Of course Les Miles has to turn the job down first, but I think KF may be gone if Les turns it down.
I'm sorry I wasn't sitting around for a response...
I told people last year that Zooks was building something special but nobody listened. I think he's a great recruiter and Illinois is a very attractive local for recruits. I think Iowa is going to have a lot more competition from Illinois and Indiana in the future than they'd ever thought possible.
So you don't think much of the competition of Iowa State against Iowa considering the special thing that Chizik is building in Ames?
Considering everything going on here, and at Wisky, Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri, Iowa's pretty much SCREWED at this point...
Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice? Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
How the hell do you know that Zook poached anyone? Speculation at best.
The sour grapes on the other recruit and whining about this one is classic Hawk talk.
Especially considering Iowa did accept a commitment, on signing day, from a kid that was committed elsewhere in Cedric Everson.
We'll see if that was a good idea or not, but regardless it's not like there are totally unethical things going on all over the place. You recruit a kid until he signs or you're an idiot in this business.
