    It's gotten out of hand now that I wouldn't be surprised. Wouldn't surprise me if coaches use it as negative/scare tactic recruiting against Iowa.

    You wouldn't think so because a lot of times recruits view themselves as invincible. And all they see is potential early playing time.

    I suppose it is possible if other coaches are saying that the injuries are connected to Doyle or our strength training. You never know what other coaches will say or what potential recruits will believe.

    One positive is we always have early playing time to sell to recruits.

    Not sure the coaches would want a player on the team who believes in non-existent curses/spirits and ghosts.

    The biggest trick AIRBHG ever pulled was convincing the fanbase he didnt exist.

    No. I mean honestly, would it be as gut wrenching if we didn't get guys the coaches and fans saw a lot of potential in? That's a Red Sox style curse, where you can get so close, you can almost taste it. With lesser recruits, it'd be like the Cubs, where there's no real hope at all to begin with.

    HawkeyeRyno's yearly assessment of Fran's recruiting:

    Really? Because judging by how many of Fran's top targets have committed elsewhere so far and Iowa has no commitments I'd say recruiting trail has been a struggle so far for Fran for the [insert current recruiting year] class.

    I don't know, but with the constant holes in the depth chart at the position, the fact that Iowa is a traditionally run-heavy offense, and the B1G is well known all over the country as a power running league, you have to wonder why we don't land a 4* or better RB in every single class.

    I think if we keep talking about it that it will eventually negatively impact recruiting

    Not saying it hurts, but how could it possibly help?!?!? If I had to pick I'd say it hurts before it helps
