    If that game felt familiar...

    I agree with this. It's frustrating that this happens, a lot. It has transcended coaching staffs and many players. Let's hope it gets fixed.

    What did we learn? (The Rocky Mountain Low Edition)

    That's just off season talk, pretty standard. Try not to buy into it. The problem at NU is that those stories about the "improved" S&C is written about and regurgitated by two large in state news papers, a magazine dedicated to the team, several beat writers for multiple recruiting websites, and several dedicated radio programs. Every story is blown up, so the hype train gets going on a pretty insane way.

    We do. But the gap between the top 15 and the rest is insane. It might seem like the team pulling in the #15 class is close to the team ranked #18 (NU last year). But it's not. Is more than twice as many 4* players. Meanwhile, the gap between #18 and classes in the low 30s is two or three 4* players. The talent is overwhelmingly concentrated in just a few top teams, and it really adds up over time.

    I hope you're right. My personal opinion is pulling in talent is going to be too difficult. Right now the only saving grace for Nebraska is the division. It doesn't have all that much talent.

    Is college football not a regional sport where the talent is concentrated in the South, and 3 teams around the great Lakes?

    I think the best we can hope for is a magical year. And I would say Penn State is in a better situation. It's much easier to recruit there.

    Nebraska fans need to accept that we're Virginia Tech, Iowa St. or Mississippi St. The sport is regional. We can't spend our way out of the issues we have; the players can't lift their way into being as talented as other teams. Unless we find 10-12 4* players a year, this is it. This is just what Nebraska is now, unfortunately. And really has been for nearly 20 years.

    *** 2020 Recruiting ***

    Good point. Today's loss hurt. What can we sell kids on now? It's hard to claim being part of something new, since this is the 3rd class. And there are a lot of innovative offensive teams out there, so I'm not sure enough high end talent is going to fall for that. Nebraska needed a big jump in year 2, and it looks difficult right now.

    *** 2020 Recruiting ***

    It seems like Nebraska isn't in on as much 4* talent this cycle. Topping 7-8 4* players, like we had last year, seems like a long shot. Hopefully this changes.

    Are we or aren’t we Rivals

    We want it to be, and I hope that's the case in the future. But in Madison last season, there wasn't any hostility between fans. Wisconsin fans didn't really seem threatened by NU, as everybody seemed to know the outcome of the game before it started. Iowa is closer to a rival, but they've spent the last few seasons embarrassing us. As Knapp pointed out, our real rival is Northwestern. Games with them are almost always quite close.

    OLB Blaise Gunnerson [Nebraska Commit]

    I do my best to let others know that life is meaningless and death is inevitable. Joking. Mostly.

    OLB Blaise Gunnerson [Nebraska Commit]

    My goal isnt to be Iowa State, nor should we hope every low 3* player turns into the next Ameer. There are hundreds of examples when it doesn't work out that way. I hope he turns into a good player just like you do.

    OLB Blaise Gunnerson [Nebraska Commit]

    Our main competition is Iowa State, and not Ohio State or Michigan, what do you think?

    OLB Blaise Gunnerson [Nebraska Commit]

    Solid midwest, low P5 player. He seems talented enough to warrant an offer, but hopefully higher tier defensive lineman are in the fold.

    OG Chandler Durham

    If we're in that top 7, something is going wrong. Frost is a good coach, but I doubt he's able to see something dozens of other coaches who heavily recruit the south are missing.

    Huskers in 2019....

    Those rankings are stupid. Indiana, who plays Ohio State, Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State and Nebraska somehow has the easiest schedule? Did they randomly put that list together?

    College Football Is Weird - Example #872

    Right. Our record against teams with a pulse is embarrassing. And getting a win against a program's worse team in a decade is nothing to be excited about. When you routinely get pulverized by Ohio State and Wisconsin, winning a once-in-a-decade game is bound to happen.

    Huskers And The 2019 NFL Draft

    At least we're not Tennessee. A class that ranked 4th and zero picks? Oof.

    2020 Final Team Ranking Prediction

    After recent departures, I think you're right. But even if the class grows, I'm not sure if Nebraska can get much higher than 16th. We'd need to pull in 12 or more 4* players, which is difficult. I'm hoping I am wrong.

    2020 Final Team Ranking Prediction

    The level of recruiting required for Nebraska to get into the top 15 with such a small class is not going to happen. For reference, in 2019 the #15 class is Notre Dame. They finished with 16 four-star players. The #14 class went to Ohio State, with 3 five-star players and 9 four-star players. Nebraska will hopefully finish once again solidly in the top 20. I'll guess they finish 20th.

    OT Turner Corcoran [Nebraska Commit]

    You must be new to recruiting? Because if you're complaining about a kid taking lots of visits, something athletes should all do as much as they want, then maybe following it isn't for you.

    Maurice Washington Faces Charges

    Im disturbed in many ways. Both in your thesis "she's lying!", shows a gross misunderstanding of what constitutes sexual assault, which I don't want to derail the thread by going into. Other posters have done a good job explaining it already. And the post itself. Seriously, where's the punctuation?

    That's a fair point.
