It's basically the same 15-20 accounts too. I feel terrible for the kids that get bombarded by Husker fans whenever they tweet something. I don't have an issue with favoriting a tweet when they mention the huskers but writing out all the reasons to come to Nebraska and basically begging the kid to come here is sad.

I've seen something as basic as a recruit tweeting thinking and then 20 Husker accounts all jump in saying hope your thinking gbr ect... makes Nebraska look bad in my opinion

But it isn't even that way though. For every 3 Husker fans, I guarantee you there is some OSU fan who has decorated their profile and made it their mission to be the most obnoxious, idiotic "Husker fan" these recruits have ever seen - on purpose. 
I've seen those too. But they're not the ones that I'm talking about, it's usually easy to tell who is a troll and then the die hard fans who haven't learned boundaries yet

Edit to add: I think the majority of our fans know boundaries but the 15-20 die hards that don't paint a poor picture for the rest of us. (Which probably happens to some extent for all fan bases)

I really wish these people would see how stupid they look.

 

The thing is, it could be a 12 year old kid for what everyone knows and that type of reaction wouldn't surprise me.  But, adults???  Get a life.

Interesting - that was discussed here last week when it first was announced and we weren't first ... I think in this poll they must have carved out some "top recruits".

 

Not that it lessons the fact that we are on the list at all.

If there were anything I could change as fans it would be the idiots that think they need to tweet players and recruits.

Ya I'm not sure where the discrepancy came from either. This poll has us tied with Tennessee with ten votes while before Tennessee was voted most annoying with 9 votes. And I think Nebraska was tied for 14th. So I'm not sure

Obviously our fans would seem annoying to a bunch of kids, none of whom are coming here to play.

I don't do it but there is no problem following a recruit.  The recruits actually like the follows.  The problem is just following doesn't let the recruit know who is following them.  Are these follows from Neb., Michigan, or Ohio St.  If Nebraska fans don't tweet anything at the recruits and the Mich and Ohio St fans are tweeting at them the assumption the recruit will draw is Mich and Ohio St fans like, want, and appreciate him more.  Probably has an effect on the recruit.  I think a good rule for Neb fans would be to tweet at the recruit "#GBR" when they follow and maybe a "welcome aboard: when they commit.  That is it.  The coaches are letting the recruits know why Nebraska is great, that the fans are great, the program's great history, the fact we need a great RB or whatever in this class.  The begging is the worst.

I think this is analogous to going to watch a football game.  Players want people to come watch but don't want fans screaming at them instructions and/or hurling insults.  You go to the game with your jersey on and cowbell in hand and cheer.  That's it.

Have - all his accounts - reported him as harassing and bullying but nothings been done.  He's blocked me from everything so I can't even see what he's up to in order to continue reporting.
