    Luke Griffin? Never heard of him. But, really, cool to see Gifford making plays.

    Well, I would argue you are worrying about nothing when you look at the individual recruiting ranks of players from last class under Frost. https://nebraska.rivals.com/commitments/football/2019 Staying on topic (i.e., Nixon), the stigma of UNL sitting in the middle of the cornfield is real and affects national recruiting. That is why nearly every recruit not from Nebraska mentions how surprised they are that Lincoln is an actual city when they visit. Honestly, this is such a common talking point, I am not sure why you feel the need to debate it.

    So here is the problem with this image. It depicts the stadium emerging from the middle of a cornfield, which is exactly the stereotype that Nebraska battles against in recruiting. Heck, I won't be surprised if some prospects think that is a real picture. All that context aside, I personally like it. Just may convey the wrong message.

    Oops. Same difference

    Seems like an equivalent prospect to Watts. This is one of the things that gives this staff good recruiting success. They have multiple options, never being left in the cold when one recruit commits less where.
  7. I got rain water pooling in a 3-inch gap between my shed and a garden plot. Any thoughts how to prevent this?

      Lot of great ideas. Thanks.

       

      @JJ Husker think I will try the perforated pipe with pea gravel. Not sure if the water is draining from the garden or accumulating from direct rain fall, but this idea has potential to resolve both issues.

       

      @huKSer no slope in real life just looks that way in the picture. Everything is even and on flat ground.

       

      @teachercd kids are too old for GI Joe. Otherwise, this could be the site of a great battle. :thumbs

      Use some fill dirt and make a mound 3" tall in the middle sloping down to ground level at both ends

      Fill with gravel. If it's overflowing, then put in a French drain first.

    Since he decommited from OU after taking an OV to A&M, my guess is Nebraska will need to get an OV during the summer and soon.

    Frost has been getting wins in-state in many situations where Nebraska was far behind. The early success of this staff lessens the sting of this loss. Good luck to the guy. Time to move on.

  11. The state of Nebraska has two HS prospects in the 2021 recruiting class within the Top 50 Nationally. When has that ever happened?

      1) I'd guess never? 

      2) They're legit prospects. If they weren't, Alabama and Michigan and OSU and LSU (etc.) wouldn't be rolling through the school.

      I don't follow recruiting much anymore. Who are the two prospects?

    Nance looked really thin during the spring game. Might need to add some strength before he can be an effective perimeter blocker, which is critical for this offense.
