Four-Star Recruit

Four-Star Recruit (5/21)



  1. From Initial Pool of 25 Candidates... From Basnett's article... 25+ candidates... Closely looked at 8... Alberts always considered in top group... Only candidate interviewed... Search firm and search advisory committee utilized...
  2. Always calculated the time to Iowa City as about 5 hours from Lincoln. So about 4 hours from Omaha... and that was typically in the day when the limits were still 65 in Iowa. (Wife went to college in the Quad Cities, and I visited her several times... had the cities mapped out as progress points. ) Would be a fun trip, depending on ticket price, place to stay, and getting someone to go with me.
  3. First off, my preference is Zoog's fun option. 16, all conference champs and 6 wild cards. Allow for the Cinderella story. Barring that, 12 with 5 Power 5 conference champs and 1 or 2 guaranteed slots to the other 5 conferences and the rest wild cards or 8 with 5 Power 5 conference champs, one guaranteed spot for the best of the other conferences, and 2 wild cards. Either of those would be a good alternative. And regardless of number, like it or not, the weekly rankings/show is here to stay. Viewership is too high and creates too much good drama to not do it.
  4. I'm sure others have a bigger list: Memorial Stadium, Lincoln Arrowhead At the following: Kansas Kansas State Missouri Iowa State Oklahoma Old Orange Bowl twice in '82 and '84.
  5. Folks, I agree with those who think that we don't really know because we haven't seen the committee pick. I found it interesting that on a show on ESPN the other day, the one sports lady who had actually talked to committee members said that in those conversations the ones she talked to stated that they were NOT taking conference affiliation into account in their rankings and selections. Leads me to believe that any thinking that 1 loss Nebraska wouldn't have a shot at the playoff isn't basing that on anything but unvalidated logic with no real basis in the new system. Without any prior selections yo go off of... any guesstimates are wild speculation at best.
  6. Disagree. Crooked Creek is okay. Highlands is more challenging and more fun in my estimation.
  7. Better question for the morning: Who didn't stay up, :-D
  8. Wow... Loaded the bases twice... And only give up one run in the inning. Nice salvage by DeLeon!
  9. Watched the game with my Dad yesterday, and that's pretty much what I said to him. This team is young and will learn from this, and will find a way to win in the postseason from it. As for making the tourney, most upset possibilities are past at this point to bump us out. All bracketologists that I followed basically stated at the beginning of the week that the only thing that could keep Nebraska out would be a loss to Purdue in the quarterfinal and when Ohio State won, I really wasn't concerned about making the NCAA tournament, but where our seed would be. Still not concerned about making it. Only if we'll have to play on Tuesday. Perk up Nebrasketball fans! We'll be dancing this year!
  10. Was surprised this hadn't been noted in here before now, but grats to the lady Huskers, 2013 regular season champs for womens soccer! Now on to the tourney championship and the NCAAs! What a turnaround for a team that had trouble finding its footing since Jenna Cooper's death. Good to see John Walker getting the ship righted!
  11. And FWIW... on the NHL side, I root for Colorado, Minnesota, St. Louis, Dallas, and the Ducks... on the college side, UNO above all others, and then a couple of UNOs future conference mates... Minnesota-Duluth and North Dakotah...
  12. Av's have been hurting since Sakic and Roy left. They've been less than mediocre since then. I also like the Wild and even happier that Parise is on a team that I don't hate... Yeah, to me, one of the big mistakes the Avs made was letting Chris Drury get away. I think Drury could have been (and to me was) the heir apparent to Sakic for captain, but for some reason, the Avs didn't think they could keep him. They need to get their head back to where they can get the guys in to compete again. Hopefully, that'll be sometime in the near future.
