Reading between the lines, it sounds like we checked but weren't interested. Hints it has to do with why he decommitted from USC but no reason given.

Most successful programs take at least one QB every year. #attrition

I don't think taking a qb every year has anything or at least very little to do with attrition.
I disagree. We skip this year and let's say POB or Gebbia leave next year. Then we are down to two scholarship QBs. And what if the next year we just have an unproven young player with no backup. #attritionmakestheroomempty
You are missing my point.

Anybody that can beat up Wayne Gretzky's kid shouldn't get their scholarship pulled.

 

I'd like to wrestle around with his daughter.

 

 

Edit: And his wife.

The staff had contact with Corral, didn't they?

No, but I'm just fine not going after Corral.

Deleted most/all of his UF social media stuff. Some speculation/rumoring a decomittment is coming. No public legs to that noise as of right now.

 

 

However his most recent follows on Twitter are Riley, Langs, Clouse and KJJ.

I am telling you Bookie has a plan, we might not understand or agree with the way he is doing it, but I can't wait to see how it turns out.

I wish i had your optimism. Been burned too many times to hardly even care about recruiting anymore. I first joined this board b/c of recruiting info and i got way too into it. Not worth putting your hope and health into what an 18 year old chooses.

Riley also followed Liz Corral (mother) 

 

Edit-- Clouse also said on Unsportsmanlike Conduct yesterday to keep an eye out for Corral as a target. Said NU and him have maintained contact since he committed to UF. 

 

Corral is "tied closely" to a ton of west coast guys including Jalen Hall

Florida board has a 4 page thread on him removing the UF stuff from his Twitter account.

Call me crazy (actually, call me cynical) ... but in my mind Bookie is more likely to decommit and not be a Husker before signing day then he is to be secretly luring this 5* QB recruit to the Huskers.  I'm with @C N Red on his "optimism" regarding recruiting ... we've drank a lot of RED kool-aid over the years.  What experience has taught us is that the new :bigredn: tradition is to lose key games late and to have enough blowouts to miss out on the top recruits on our board.  That's how it has gone for us.  This year, you have to throw in the whole saga of MR's AD getting fired and already losing to UNI and what appears to be the impending implosion of this season and Husker Nation. 

All that to say, I'm just cynical at this point.  Although I love Bookie as a player and I'm glad he is a :bigredn: commit ... I'll wait for the dust to settle and see where we are come Signing Day.  Oh ... and by the way ... I hate what I just wrote.  Hate feeling this way, hate thinking this way. 

I'm like the Grinch ... "Hate, hate hate ... double hate ... LOOOOATHE  ENTIRELY!!!!  

 

 

I'm so bummed that this is where we are this season.

I have a hard time getting excited about this (or any other recruiting development) knowing what is probably going to happen on the weekend after the Iowa game.

Red Five, 

 

You beat me to it.  I have followed recruiting fairly heavily recently.  But, when our HC is on such a hot seat with the very real possibility that he will be gone at the end of the season, I have a hard time getting excited about these story lines.


Yes, this is all great.  I love the thought of all these players playing for Nebraska.  But, if the season goes as it very well could, it's a very real possibility there will be a change at the end of the year.....which nullifies almost all of these possibilities.

Call me crazy but we could give HCMR another year or two to see how things play out - especially if they can consistently win and pull off some upsets this year. He has been bringing in better and better classes and this class could be one of the best in a long time.

Honest question:

 

Say we have a top 15 recruiting class heading into Iowa game. Say we go 7-5.

 

Are you:

 

A) Canning Riley

B) Waiting to can Riley until after NSD

C) Giving him another year

D) Convincing him to retire with a buyout before Spring Ball.

 

If we have a talented class, we must find a way to get them here.

The season is only 1/3 of the way over.  So, there is a lot to play out.  However, some crazy things would have to happen for him to still be there in January.  


Now, if he some how miraculously gets to 8 or 9 wins and at that point he has commitments from all of these players plus some and has an amazing class put together......that would go a long ways to saving his job.  But, if we win 7 or less and we are still sitting with a class in the 30s nationally for worse.......the writing is on the wall.

 

Another big change that would go a long ways is a change at offensive coordinator.  What if he fires Langsdorf in the next couple weeks and the offense starts looking a lot better with him calling the plays?

(Sorry this is long and rambling but lots in my head)

 

I think we have to give MR another year.. HAVE to... as long as he fires Langsdorf and most likely Reggie Davis and maybe Cav. And trust me, all 3 would understand why.. 

 

Think about this.. All our recruits and current players seem to love Diaco, Donte, Bray, Parella and company. Not to mention we have coach dub taking care of our WR's and he is one of the best WR coaches in the nation..  If we fire MR, most likely they clean house. That means killing off all the progress we've made on the defensive side of the ball. I know, I know, we lost to No. Ill and gave up 42 to Oregon in the first half but this defense and defensive staff is good and making strides in the right direction. These kids have had less than a year to learn how to play the 3-4 so I have a hard time just throwing that out the window.. I do have a really good feeling about that side of the ball as we get deeper into B1G play. (I do smell an upset or 2)

 

The other reason to keep MR, injuries... Just having Chris Jones on D the first few games I almost guarantee we are 3-1 if not 4-0 right now. Not to mention the WR, O-line, and RB issues. I know Lee hasn't been the savior at QB but all more the reason to give MR 1 more year so we can see what Lee, Gebbia or POB can really do in this system.

 

As mentioned above, there is a ton of football to play... MR needs to have a top 20-25 recruiting class and go at least 6-6 but compete with the top programs (or go 7-5) and win a bowl game to even have a chance at keeping his job.. The new AD will be a big part of this as well.. (side note: I truly hope it's not Trev but that's just me.. I want someone that understands our traditions but doesn't want to live in the past. This isn't the 90's and we need to look toward the future.) 

 

 I'm not giving up on MR just yet but he needs to get JAY CUTLER, I mean Tanner Lee, under control and teach him how to read a damn defense. Trust the Process and Trust MR.. at least for 1 more year

247 currently has us at 38 in the rankings. Seems rather unlikely that we move up 23+ spots in the next two months - especially since Riley is sitting on a throne of liquid hot magma.

You can him...you don't let 17-18 year olds hold the program hostage.  Shoot, history tells us that what, 40% of those recruits will never do anything.

Yup.  You don't delay the inevitable because you have a handful of 18 year olds say they are coming to your school.

And we all know that would be your answer if he went undefeated the rest of the way and won the conference.

 In that scenario... I lean towards C. Top 15 class means he has some additional 4 stars... and possibly even a 5 star in the fold. Say we have a new AD by then... I am assuming he takes the recruiting into this scenario - probably replaces Cav and Reggie. AD gives him an ultimatum for next year that it is CCG or BYE. You lose 2-3 games early and he gone. Lets Scott Frost work on being a coach a little longer.... he is still super young in his HC career. Any time working issues out that he comes across at UCF makes it easier for him to have success when he inevitably comes here.

Maybe the biggest question is, even if we can get a bunch of these high rated recruits in for a couple years, is the coaching staff good enough to do anything with it??

What have you seen since they've been here makes you think that?? Mostly offensively. I can see some improvement in play on defense so i could see them being able to develop and deserve more time to prove themselves.

That's why everyone should give Riley 1 more year. Let him fire Langs, Reggie and Cav. MR fired friends and brought in Diaco, Parrella and Donte which is really starting to pay off and hopefully that only continues. I'd be more than willing to wait 1 more year to see what happens when he fires more friends, and brings in a real OC, Line coach and RB coach. Plus that'll give our AD a year to get things going before making what will be the biggest potential fire/hire of his life. Talk about pressure for a new AD..

 

I am all about winning and winning now but anyone that thinks firing MR now/ at the end of the season and is expecting next year to be great is nuts. We have arguably the toughest schedule in college football in 2018. (As long as we go 7-5 or better this year) We might as well have a team with stability and that has had a full season to play in a new D and new offensive scheme vs a new coach with new systems again and possibly losing more recruits.

Might be a tough sell to not only fire all those dudes but then hire better ones when they know MR would really just have that one season to produce.

I feel like 7-5 is the bare minimum.  At 7-5 it would have to mean we beat Minny, Purdue, Illinois, NW and then one of Iowa/Wiscy/tOSU/PSU.  In my book that is pretty damned disappointing.  But if we somehow are sitting on top of even a top 20 class it may be just enough to keep him another year.  I don't know, there are so many variables at play right now.
