    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    Think of it this way. If we were once eliminated because there were 5 better options, why would replacing one of those options seem like such a great accomplishment to give us hope of landing him.

    Also,I don't think he's coming to Iowa, but just because you do, doesn't mean you think Iowa is going to get better in the future more than I do or anyone else does.

    I think Iowa needs to land Kozan though, that's my opinion.

I go to every game and every bowl game.You guys don't even know bad football !I was there when we one game, but we probably had more fun then.Open bottle's were the norm in the stands!
    Ferentz did bring in some 5 star gems like Kyle Williams(probably still finding women to beat somewhere, never played a down) and Dan Doering(yikes).

    Diamond doesn't come across as the type that is going by Name schools like Schutt was
    he actually is looking at BT schools that put OL prospects in the NFL
    and Michigan, Wisconsin and OSU
    so to replace one BT OL producing with another is a good sign
    Lets see where that faith gets ya cuz Diamond aint coming here. Its pretty obvious and you are the only one on this board that does not see it.

    it doesn't matter about if Iowa has a chance by your biased opinion on Iowa has no chance, if he wasn't interesyed in Iowa, he had no reason to add them
    he could have simply dropped Wisconsin and left it at that
    He didn't have Iowa in his Top 5, then he put them in when all the changes were happening with Wisky. So I would say we don't have a good chance at landing him, he's probably O$U bound.
    Iowa Hawkeyes, Georgia Bulldogs, Atlanta Braves, Dallas Cowboys, UNI Panthers, That's it.

    I think I'd rather get Kozan, too. Am I the only one who thinks Diamond might be a little overrated?

    It seems to be the consensus around here (not sure if that's partially motivated by the fact that Iowa isn't getting Diamond or not).

    It does look extremely likely that Iowa will indeed get one of the three big o-line prospects though. OSU and Michigan don't have room for them all.

    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    as for feeling the team will get better is because recruiting has gotten better
    2008 class had 12 2* recruits
    2009 class had 13 2* recruits
    2010 class had 5 2* recruits
    2011 class had 5 2* recruits
    2012 clas has 3 2* recruits with one being the punter who is rated in the top 15 at his position by all sites
    the 2* recruits are going to be passed by better players
    it is one thing to find 2 maybe 3 diamonds but to expect to get a shoval full of coal and expect them all to be turn into diamonds is a major stretch
    also from 2002 to 2009 Iowa has avg'd 11 2* recruits per year
    why do you think Iowa has not sustained success
    the stars do mean something after all
    we have needed more 3* talent than 2* talent with a couple more 4* players to maintain top 25 status

    Re:4* player with Iowa interests

    Any chance with the flake Andre Mcdonald? I was shocked when he committed to Vanderbilt when he kept saying Iowa is his favorite. Would really fill an immediate need at wide receiver

    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    all i have heard he reopened his recruiting and is going to visit Illinois as that is where the Vandy WR coach went to who was the kids primary recruiter
    i don't see a reason to call him a flake for following the Position coach who recruited him

    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    i also never said Diamond is/was coming to Iowa
    all i said was the chance are about 20% or 1 in 5
    if Iowa had no chance Diamond would not of put Iowa on his list
    and from what i was told when Diamond came out with his final 5 the 5th team came down to Iowa and Wisky
    wiscy was the 5th choice but now with all the coaching changes at Wisky, Diamond dropped them and replaced Wisky with Iowa
    i would take diamond as a OT over O'Conner or Kozan as he fits the bill as a OT at 6'6 290
    vs O'Conner or Kozan at 6'4 285 for both, it is my opinion that the latter 2 are more suited for the OG spot in KF's OL
    beside where are all the smart *** comments now about being more optimistic going forward with putting out how recruiting is improving

    There is a .00001% Diamond comes to Iowa. Also the Vandy wr backed out of a commitment to Minnesota before Vandy.

    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    so that makes him a flake
    maybe just maybe he liked the WR coach better at Vandy and has decided to go with the coach
    or is this sour grapes because he didn't choose Iowa

    Re: 4* player with Iowa interests

    Reading comprehension... I didnt make the statement just pointing out the OBVIOUS. Suprised a recruiting guru like yourself didn't have that figured it out.
