Singer for Hole? The Widow Cobain?

 

Strong Safety/QB that wants to play QB in college?

Is the "Flying Leg Lock" even allowed anymore in College Football?

Isnt that Bo and Carl's old high school?

That is correct, along with Tim Marlow and Braylon Heard.

 

We are his top choice at this time.

Would be an excellent pickup. No one would tackle Courtney because they fear they'd catch something like crabs. Wrong Courtney Love?? My mistake:)

 

On a different note, you know this kid is tough having a name like that.

2013 is shaping up to be the best named class. Seriously, Courtney Love, Taco, what is next? I hope some of these guys commit, it will make cheering for them a lot of fun.

Sign him up. With a name like that he's probably one mean, nasty mofo.

 

He probably gets tired of answering questions about Kurt Cobain.

OSU offered. whomp whomp

No prob, they don't have as many Mooney guys on their staff as NU does. So obviously NU wims.

 

This is a very valid point, one that I think gives NU an edge.

this is the type of linebacker we need. he is from a high school where discipline is preached. he is a hard nosed kid and with nebraska just signing his teammate mcwilson this should help us get the upper hand.

His teammate commited, not signed. HUGE difference. But I do agree, having his teammate commited to us does give us an upper hand. So does having three coaches and about four other current players all from that high school.

Do you know who they want ahead of Courtney? Because I'd assume he'd commit to them soon if they weren't holding out for other targets.

Not sure, I havn't checked or heard of anyone. But I will do some research.

I believe Jaylon Smith, Levenberry & Anzalone are the at the top of the board for Ohio State. The only other Ohio LB with an offer is Gedeon.

I was wrong on one count...it appears Ohio State had cooled on Levenberry several weeks before I posted that (I just went back and looked back over Levenberry's thread on BP after noticing the comment here that he had announced his final 3).

Love brought 8 people with him to Lincoln, including his dad, his assistant coach and some other family members and younger teammates.

 

They've been here since Wednesday and will be staying until Sunday.

There are some Ohio State blogs that are positive Love will announce to the Buckeyes sooner rather than later. That being said there has to be a level of sincere interest in the Huskers given the individuals he brought on his official visit.

Sure, he might be leaning toward Ohio State. But it always amuses me when people say with surety "X will be on this team." It's April for crap's sake. Kids change their minds.

Love most likely will not be coming here. It was part of the linked article below that was in the actual paper toady, but for some reason they are only showing part of the article online because they want you to sign up for HO to read the rest, even thou its in the paper itself.

 

Anyway Love basically said it gave him something to think about but he will most likely still be going to Ohio State. Liked the visit but said the only thing that Ohio State has over NU is he has family close. We can pretty much kiss him goodbye. The most honest quote i think ive ever read from a recruit. Good luck to the kid.

I can see Love at Ohio State or I can see Love at Nebraska... either way. Year after Year we finish second best to top tier recruits. And why? Well it's not our facilities, academics, weight program, or training table. It's not our coaches. It's not anything we can control at all.... it comes down to an 18 year old peer pressured by his friends at school to go to the "god school" close to home. For kids in Dallas/Houston/San Antonio that's Texas. For kids in Ohio, that's Ohio State. For kids in California, that's UCLA/CAL/Stanford/or USC. We can go on and on.

 

I'll draw up an example (hypothetical of course). A kid like Joe Mathis visits NU... is blown away and has a blast. He goes home thinking this could be the school for him. Then he goes into school with his Nebraska shirt on Monday... his friends give him a hard time and say why in the world are you wearing that shirt. Nebraska sucks... why would you want to live in the cold with a bunch of white people man... why would you wanna play for a school that hasn't been to a bcs game in like 10 years. Yeah they may have nice facilities but there's a reason they ain't pullin in 5* players like USC and Stanford are man. You go there, not only will you be the man around here, but you'll go to big BCS games, get to hang out on the beach with hollywood right there, you'll go to the NFL, etc. etc.

 

When it comes time for a decision the kid gets scared to go that far from home, he starts to think his friends are right and convinces himself of it. So then he's not signing with us... it happens year after year. I live in Texas and I can't tell you how many of my friends decisions to go to college were influenced by their football friends/girlfriends/parents/coaches/etc. Most of them really didn't pick for themselves, they picked what people wanted them to pick out of the best options they had.

 

Unfortunately, Nebraska's geographical location hurts it more than anything. I guarantee you that if we were 8-9hrs south/southeast and nothing else changed at all... we'd be reeling in a lot more big fish just off of that alone. It sucks, it's ridiculous, I don't like it. but it's truth. :(

I agree to a good degree that it takes a kid to have a degree of bravery to step out on their own and be their own person. That can be a tall order for a 17-18 year old. The demographic differences are a big wall that some kids can't get past, and its reall unfortunate because many kids miss out on maximizing their potential on and off on the field.

On the other hand, it's really refreshing when you see kids like Westerkamp or McMullen from last year who either have the option or were actively being pressured to stay close to home and play for the home town team, and still make their own decision and decide to be their own person. Gotta love the kids who want to be Huskers.
