    Do they change the name of this board when there are more Iowa fans posting here than Nebraska fans? We gotta be getting close.

    Who cares what Iowa does or any other team in the Big Ten West team does. We need to be recruiting like teams like Ohio State, Michigan, Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, OU, Texas A&M, Texas, and etc. For us to win, Scott needs to pull in top 10 class starting next year. If he can’t he needs to be around 10-15 range with good coaching. I wish we were still in the Big 12. We took a hit with recruiting in some states when we moved over. Even though the Big 10 pays more, competition in Big 10 West is weak.

    Not really wishful thinking, when other programs like Purdue and Wisconsin and Minnesota along with Nebraska are ranked higher in the West.

    In fact, according to rivals, even with a higher rated class, Iowa is still ninth in the B1G, and fifth in the west. Fleck and Brohm are better recruiters. Prior to their arrival, Iowa recruited better than those schools.

    So just because Iowa’s recruiting improved, so has minnesota and purdue... so it’s not wishful thinking to think Iowa May struggle.

    MOST of those have been recruiting BETTER on paper than Iowa, and yet they still win.

    yes this class at the highest of 35 is replacing a outgoing class that was rated 59th. that's a 24 spot increase.
    the players that are leaving early were part of the 2016 class that was rated 42nd with 0 4* players.
    2* 1st Team AA TE Hockenson
    3* 2nd team AA SS Hooker
    3* 3rd team AA Fant

    hmmm 3 AA's from a class that was rated 42nd. that 59th rated class led Iowa to a 9-4 record and a #25 final AP ranking,

    these return on offense
    3* SR QB Stanley
    3* RSJR RB Young
    3* JR 1st Team JUCO AA
    3* JR Kelly-Martin
    3* JR Smith-Marsette
    2* RSJR TE Hockenson [has not declared] 1st Team AA
    3* RSJR LT Jackson [FR AA]
    4* JR Wirfs [US Army AA]

    this group had the highest scoring avg since 2002 @31.2 ppg, since the middle of the OL were all 1st year starters they are in a pretty good position.
    on defense the back 7 return 7 starters off a defense that was rated#6 in total defense. the front 4 had 2 1st year starters both of which were Backup DE's before being moved to DT
    RSJR Anthony Nelson replacement is RSJR to be Gohlston who was 3rd on the team in sacks
    Hesse will be replaced by former 5* US Army AA Epenesa who led the Team and BT in sacks with 10.5 sacks. looking at that the Defense could be even better in the 19 season.

    2013 class was rated 53rd
    2014 class was rated 59th
    2015 class was rated 56th of which there are only 13 players left out of a class of 21 players.

    So you have a problem with those who recruit better on paper but when Iowa makes a 24 spot jump up to 35th it’s serious business?

    this class has 20 commits 3.0 1440 points
    Minnesota is 36th by Rivals with 23 commits with a 2.91 avg 1485 points
    Purdue is 25th with 26 commits 3.04 1776 points
    Wisconsin is 26th with 19 commits 3.26 1771 points
    Nebraska is 18th with 25 commits 3.32 1990 points.

    not worried about the differences as Iowa has always been our recruited but they still win. during that stretch of recruiting classes in the 50's they still went 8-5, 8-5 and 9-4.

    also they just had JUCO 2nd Team AA LB Hale who set IWCC record in Tackles with 142 which led the JUCO in Tackles. he will walk on to the FB Program.

    Sorry, but Minnesota and Purdue were not recruiting better than Iowa before these current coaches arrived. Brohm and Fleck have raised the bar in recruiting, and here you are pretending they always outrecruited Iowa.

    Ok.

    But, see, if you are annoyed by those dipshits what does that mean about you? Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. No matter how much you annoy me I will never be on the Hawkeye board. I have a life.

    Not sure what it is but Nebraska sees something in him and he's blowing up late. Nebraska sent Ryan Held to visit him on the very first day visits were allowed again and that visit even took place right before he was getting on a plane for an outstate OV. Think the Rivals scholarship offers are out of date for him now. We'll see what happens.

    well you can cross RB Williams from Iowa off your list in the 2020 class as he just committed to Iowa. 100 meter sprinter. the slow part of the definition about Iowa is being corrected.
    DB Moss ran the 3rd fastest 110 meter hurdles in the HS Nationals who is projected to play FS after starting 4 games at CB as a true FR.

    Who? I didn't even know we were recruiting a RB from Iowa. He's never been mentioned on this board that I've seen. I guess we'll learn to struggle through with the 3 4-star RBs we have committed. :Cool:

    Hey I don’t blame you here, I count all the recruiting sites too when I’m deciding how our class looks. But this will bite you and Iowa in the butt more then it helps. Counting all the recruiting sites ESPN, Rivals and 24/7, the Huskers have 14 4 star players and the rest 3 star players (all 5.6 and up I believe). So even still, Iowa May have 2-3 4 star players but the Huskers still are better with 14 4 stars. With 2-3 top 100 players (depending on which site your going off of). So no matter how you flip it or twist it, the Huskers will have a much better class regardless of 20 commits or 40 commits.

    Dude, none of us care about your Iowa recruits or players. So why bother, why even post it. We will never respect or like Iowa and your trash Head Coach. Bad luck for you guys is Mike Riley is now gone. All this crap your spewing will change and never be the same again SOON.

    Edited: you can post any stat or show anything that YOU think helps make your point and we’d all still disagree and will never give you credit. Biggest thing that matter to us, Bo Pelini and the Huskers owned Iowa then he gets canned then you guys get lucky we hired Mike Riley and his staff....down side is, Mike Riley and his staff is now gone and we now have a elite head coach. All this Iowa chest pounding comes to a stop and now. Iowa will NEVER blow us out again, period!

    Coaches line up guys this time of year in order of who they want most. First visit weekend you saw the priority guys for the priority spots on campus.
    It was discovered Dylan Jordan had some off the field stuff. Kansas, KState and Nebraska all backed off.
    Steven Parker came on his OV but didn’t give rave reviews. I wonder how much of an option he really is. There may be grade issues here or something else.

    With that said we want:

    Plan A - RB Dedrick Mills (if grades)
    Plan B - RB John Bivens or Micah Kelly

    Plan A - WR Charles Njoku
    Plan B - WE Demariyon Houston

    Secured - S Noa Pola Gates

    Plan A - CB DJ James
    Plan B - CB Jamel Starks or Tavian Mayo

    Plan A - OLB/DE Soni Fonku or Michael Lockhart (they want to get each on campus to get a feel for fit with team and dive deeper into character/grades/etc)
    Plan B - possibly a Desmond Little or Eugene Asante

    I think they are also exploring the Grad Transfer market and lining up backup plans to these plans in case they miss on some guys.

    I think there is a low likelihood they end up signing Desmond Bland. There’s too many red flags between him continuing to change his story, to people saying his grades are nowhere close to where they should be, to him flirting with FSU/Texas. I just don’t think he makes it here.

    yes Hockenson just declared for the draft. but just to remind you Hockenson was just a lil ol 2*. who after just 3 years left as a 1st Team AA and Mackey Award winner who was coached by Brian Ferentz who was the former TE Coach for the NE Patriots.

    do you really think there is nobody to take Fant or Hockensons place? WR Brandon Smith as a true FR had 5 catches for 25 yards then as a true so had 28 catches for 361 yards
    Smith-Marsette who was a backup had 23 catches for 361 yards
    1st year player JUCO RB Sargeant led the team in rushing with 159 carries for 745 yards, Sargeant was a JUCO 1st Team AA who did arrive at Iowa until June of last summer, hmm only 3 months on campus before the 1st game and he leads the team in rushing.

    QB Stanley passed for 2437 yards in his 1st season with GF in his 1st season as the OC/TE Coach finishing 59th amongst QB's
    2nd season stats. 2852 yards finishing 40th amongst QB's

    nice improvement from 59th to 40th. the OL had 3 1st year starters in the middle, Ferguson was a former walk on
    Render was a 3*
    Reynolds was a 3*
    their replacements [possible]
    LT RSJR Jackson [named a FR AA]
    LG RSSR Landon Paulson [4* by Scout
    C RSFR Linderbaum [US Army AA]
    RG RSSR Levi Paulson [4* by Scout]
    RT JR Wirfs [4* US Army AA]

    the OL is bigger and better on paper than it has been since the 2009 Orange Bowl team that went 11-2 with a BCS Bowl win.

    Do you really want to do this? We have a lot more head to head battles with clemson, Alabama, Michigan, Oregon, Georgia, USC, Notre Dame, to name a few, and have done well in the process.

    I decided to check out your recruits... an awful lot of offers from Georgia state, Liberty, Akron, and a host of othe G5 offers for numerous Iowa commits. Yes, your highest rated 3 star players had offers from some heavy hitters, but that’s it. The rest were competitions with G5 schools.

    For your sake, you better hope Iowa continues to develop the crap out of players. Because with Nebraska bringing in the caliber of player we are, even if the development is half as good, the wins against the huskers you have come to enjoy will be a thing of the past.

    Thanks for crashing the thread, Turkeys. I know the lightbulb doesn’t burn bright for you, so I’ll spell it out: this is a thread for remaining ‘19 commitments.
    Carry on with your “ussual” shouting into the void that is Iowa football

    Personally, I think Asante is the best LB on the board, but it sounds like he wants to stay out East.
