    They are not behind "many other schools." They are top 25 in the country and will have a huge class this year (25 or so), so they aren't close to being finished. They will probably drop a little, but "like a stone" is just laughably idiotic. You are also discounting the possibility that any of their current commitments will receive a ranking upgrade.

    Who is gonna get more stars out of your class? Usually guys who get bumped up are being recruited by multiple teams....not in the MAC. Im sure they are all gems, though.

    Iowa's average stars sits at 2.68 per player on rivals... A shade better than Rutgers and Indiana. That's it. Sure when the re ranking comes in there may be a bump... But 2.68 is pretty pathetic!

    Speaking of "laughably idiotic", you know Rivals only counts 20 commitments in their team rankings, so it doesn't matter if it is a huge class they only get 20, same as everyone else. So as far as rivals team rankings go they are close to finished.

    Now some of their guys will get rankings upgrades and some will be replaced in the calculation by higher ranking players. But if history is any indication are going to need at minimum all 20 of their counters to be 3 stars. Which was still only good enough to get GT the 39th ranked class last year.

    Unless Kirk starts reeling in a much higher rated caliber player for the last 8 spots in this "huge class" (which isn't really all that big). They are going to drop and if history is any indication, probably 15 to 20 spots.

    All of this presupposing Iowa's 3 star commitments with other offers from MAC or FCS schools are equal to kids Nebraska have being recruited by Oregon, Texas, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Auburn, Ole Miss, for a brief sampling, which is probably "laughably idiotic".

    Its pretty adorable you tried to pull your big boy pants on and grace our presence by talking down to us, but take your schoolyard bullshit back to where ever you came from because homie that shit don't play here

    If I read it right, Iowa has 17 commits and only 6 of those commits have other offers from multiple Power 5 conference schools. Nebraska has 12 commits, all but one has multiple offers from other Power 5 schools (Aphonso Thomas).

    Sometimes you get an early commit and nobody else bothers to offer because it's clear they're completely solid. But not THAT often.

    Jake Rudock is a graduate transfer, there is an ocean of difference in relation to an incoming undergraduate freshman. If you are trying to say he chose to leave Iowa for Michigan because of their med program in the hopes of becoming a more successful MD, that is bogus. Why he left Iowa, seems to be no secret... he wasn't going to start. Why he chose Michigan is because he still wants to play football obviously (and the opportunity to start is strong) and yes they are known for their med program and perhaps he got accepted into it? I don't know, but Noah Fant and Jake Rudock are not in the same situation.

    Noah is enjoying the process and the attention he is getting. He keeps getting more offers and that is rewarding to him. Sooner or later he will get to making a decision, but milking the process to a kid is like a just reward for all the hard work he put in over the years. Let him enjoy his time, as it only comes around once usually.

    Iowa now 3 spots ahead of Nebraska in the national rankings.

    You guys are funny. Good luck against BYU. You'll need it.

    You must have more important things to do than spew weak trolls all over this message board.

    With JB gone, I honestly think this opens the door for Fant to be actively recruited as a TE or DE, he gets to pick and that'll make NU more attractive. I think NF Committs in a couple months.

    We're 6th in average stars in the conference, which isn't good enough.

    But you're 13th out of 14 and you're trying to talk smack to us? Congratulations on having a higher average star ranking than Indiana. Please, fill up your class early with players virtually no other Power 5 team wants. We've tried that, it really doesn't work that well.

    Kirk Ferentz is one of the top ten highest paid coaches in the country---why?
