In what may be one of the shortest press releases ever, ISU announces open tryouts for the FB team.
I see no downside to this.
There is probably some talent wandering around campus, especially if they played JUCO or were a decent HS player but never thought they would have a shot at DI. If even a handful of guys can provide practice depth, scout team, whatever, we're better for it. Tryouts should become a tradition, because a school like ISU will need its fair share of walkons to be successful in the long run.
Think of the cult status a kid will recieve if he goes from stands to starter in a season or two.
