I realize that stars don't mean much, but most outside sources are rating us in the same category as teams like Vandy, Tulsa, and even Iowa. Take that for what it's worth, though. ESPN gave us a C-, the same as Kansas, K-State, Vandy, and Indiana. Iowa got a C.
But those really don't mean anything.
Personally, I think that this class has a lot of potential. I see a lot of athletes. It remains to be seen what will become of all the players, but under the circumstances, I think our class has exceeded my expectations.
True, but then again, how many of those teams had a head coach scrambling the first month of his job to lock down recruits? The only one I can think of is K-State, but I think they knew for months, plus it's not like Snyder isn't a familiar name there.
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.
I wouldn't be surprised at all of shady doings down in Ole Miss. We had an intern here a few years ago who went to school there. Talk about a group of people with an over inflated ego of where they really stand in the football world. She constantly bashed Iowa State, "Do yall even play football up 'round there?" This of course, was the same year we went to The Indy Bowl against Miami - Ohio and Ole Miss sat the Bowl season out. Thing is, I know they have a strong tradition down there. And getting to know a few of the students that come from there, I know that Nutt has a ton of pressure on him to succeed. I'm sure he's pulling out all stops, even keeping players from other schools. They are expecting big things and not just decent bowl births.
Oh yeah, I forgot to say, I'm pretty happy with the way things went. We could always say it could have gone better, but I think the coaches did a great job considering everything. I am excited about the fact that we kept a lot of guys commited and then signed. It tells me two things. We hired the right guy to come in and hold the ship together and we have a nice group of kids coming in who are excited to be Cyclones.
