Where we should be recruiting our players from, and how our past coaches were doing it wrong/right, is argued about a lot, so I decided to make these. These are not really of recruits, they're of the rosters. The way I assigned players was by the first time they showed up on the roster. If a player was on the roster in 2007 and 2008 (like Suh) he was assigned to Callahan. If a player is on Osborne's roster from 1992-1996, they're only included once. One small issue with this is I think someone on the scout team (like when they were huge in the 90s) who moves onto the roster might be assigned to the wrong coach, but I think this would be rare, and they're probably almost always from Nebraska. One other small thing is we've had about 8 players from different countries and some from Hawaii that obviously don't show up on here, so the percentages don't quite add up to 100. (Solich had 3 Hawaiian players, Osborne 1, Callahan 1, and Callahan had 1 Alaskan). I only included the players from 1990 on. If I have more time in the future and people like these I can go back further and see how Osborne's recruiting changed over the years. Another thing I might do is make a Nebraska map showing player recruiting by county. The numbers are the percentages in decimal form. So for the Osborne map, 53.08% of the players are from Nebraska, 5.62% are from California, and so on. Lastly, the color scales are exactly the same for each coach. So if 3% of Solich's roster was from Idaho and 3% of Pelini's roster was from Idaho, they'd be the same shade of red. (except with Nebraska which is always bright red).
