SIGNED QB Bubba Starling

Recommended Posts

I'm not gonna lie not a fan of Diener at all.

Yeah I heard how much of a stud he is at baseball too. My bet is that he ends up playing baseball instead of football because I have heard rumors about him and playing baseball.

 

A lot of people in town weren't fans of his. Preferential treatment of a HS coach in small town KS doesn't usually go over too well. You can't argue w/ results though. Not to mention that I have never seen Gardner come together as a town like they did this year because of this football team. It was good to see.

 

I don't know him personally so I have no opinion one way or the other. I know his daughter a little bit, think she's a junior/senior in HS or something. I'm about 10 years too old to know her more than that. :)

 

I do think Bubba will go the baseball route. Some will suggest being a 2-sport athlete like Khiry, but I don't think you can play 2 sports as a QB. You need to be 100% committed.

Man knows how to win though. Thought it was a great get for Gardener.

My fiancée teaches middle school at Gardner and actually coached him in track while he was in junior high. Kid is a great all around athlete from what I have seen and from the stories she told me a real high character kid. I would love to see him in a Nebraska uniform.

Staples mentioned him in an article this afternoon.

Looks like he went to KU Junior Day (Rivals teaser). I didn't think KU Junior days were until later in the month but I guess not. Gill being a 2 sport QB should help w/ their recruitment of him. I still see him going MLB route, but we'll see.

He is ours, you leave him be! You boys just stay out of Kansas, we got enough problems with OU taking top talent out.

The word is that the kid will be a first round MLB draft pick. I can see him going that route right out of HS. I would if I were him.

First round is a stretch. I'd go more with 3rd-5th. He's had some shoulder issues if I remember right. I'm sure we'll know more as spring ball starts in a month. He has an away baseball game (Frontier/Kaw Challenge) on the 16th & 17th or April so I don't see him making it up for our spring game.

What's with all the love for the name Bubba? Why not just call yourself DumbHick?

Bubba is little classier :laughpound

 

 

Just imagine... Bubba the starting QB for the Cornhuskers... it doesn't get much more country than that.
