    picked by many what? I have literally only heard of one poll that put them in the top ten in a way too early pre season poll every other one had them between 18-21.... which honestly seems about right... however let our season be a cautionary tail of how well preseason polls predict your season... you keep thumping your chest over mediocracy, while Nebraska keeps building towards championships again... I’d gladly take a few down years like this knowing that we were building towards bigger and better things, over a life long dredge through 7-8 win seasons with an occasional 10 win season but still stuck in mid range bowls and no chance at a CFP appearance

    Hard to respect a fan base fans when all they through at us is Nebraska fans live in the 90’s..

    Fact is Iowa has only won 2 Major or New Year 6 bowls since 1959...

    Yet they feel their program is a elite program..

    Only iowa fans care enough to watch them. Most fans of other teams that play iowa just watch espn for score updates. Sorry, but iowa is one of those "turn the channel" teams that only you and your ilk care to watch. Nice try.

    It is mazing that this idiot just keeps coming back for more, after being destroyed time and time again, I'm starting to think he may not be playing with a full deck. To recap:

    Nebraska fans are not impressed by your 7-win seasons (really no one except Iowa fans are).
    Iowa at its' peak is barely better than Nebraska it its' lowest point and Nebraska has still had a better record than Iowa since Captain Kirk took over.
    Nebraska is taking the best recruits out of Iowa (and yes you do want them).
    And NO ONE gives a shit about raslin'

    But congrats again all the scouts camped out at practice and on all the future mediocracy.

    Nebraska Football looks to be in good shape with Thomas Fidone.
    Another Crystal Ball Prediction is trending in the direction of Nebraska Football. Steve Wiltfong of 247Sports made a prediction on Wednesday that has four-star tight end Thomas Fidone coming to Nebraska.

    Fidone is the 10th overall tight end in his class and the third overall player in the 2021 class from the state of Iowa per the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Nebraska has a 57% chance of landing him while Iowa has a 14% chance.

    Currently, the 2021 Nebraska football recruiting class ranks 14th nationally and fourth overall in the Big Ten per the 247Sports Team Rankings. It seems as though they are making a concerted effort to try and build the class up as they look towards the future. The fact that Nebraska is getting positive feedback from recruits is a great sign. Building a program takes time, and with how well Nebraska is doing in this class, it’s an affirmation that things may be working.

    I really hope Fidone comes to Lincoln. He would be an immediate asset in the passing game, and he would allow Nebraska to have another weapon on the field. I’m not going to get my hopes up just yet, but it looks like that may be the case. This would make him a staple of the 2021 class, and give the program that signature recruit that they have seem to be able to get over the past couple of years.

    Gonna be impressed if they pull in a highly rated QB recruit this cycle, with McCaffrey and Smothers already on the roster.

    Better question is how many cold weather teams recruit at a high level. Winning it all requires many factors beyond weather to fall into place, but we can all agree that elite recruiting is a prerequisite for winning a title.

    CCGs and playoff sites are all indoors or in warm climates, so the question is entirely "will recruits from warm states go to cold states."

    The answer is probably that most recruits tend to stay close to home in general, so Ole Miss has just as tough a time pulling a kid out of New Jersey as Michigan does pulling one out of Louisiana. The climate is just a coincidence.

    The point about Hawaii earlier is a very good one. If you've been to Hawaii, it's as perfect a climate as you can ask for. Yet they're a total afterthought in football. If weather matters so much, why aren't they signing major classes and telling the kids to have fun at the beach in their downtime? Because weather is overrated.

    We know that football is a tough, violent, demanding game. Are we HONESTLY buying into the idea that a kid who has to be tricked into not realizing Nebraska has winter is man enough to play elite college football?

    The big boys pull in elite QBs on a continuous basis. NU needs to as well. You won't keep them all in this era of transfers, but you've got to take one each year IMO precisely because some of them will transfer.

    They can't all start and a guy who is going to leave instead of play backup is going to do that whether he's 2 of 2 QBs or he's 3 of 5 QBs or whatever. You'd better have some more guys waiting when he goes.

    lmfao...you’re so desperate to kick the Huskers, you are even whiling to kick your very own Hawkeyes just to do it. Iowa and the Huskers have dam near identical win/lose records the past 22 years. So if this is the case, then that means Iowa is still rebuilding too. Maybe do some research before running your mouth. Only the last couple years have the Huskers been bad bad and that was due to a stupid Mike Riley hire. Now the Huskers are in the middle of a complete rebuild. Before popping off about Frosts records during his rebuild..please remember Kirk Ferentz went 1-10 and 3-8 his first 2 seasons of his rebuild. That’s 4-18 in 2 seasons while Frost has gone 9-15. GBR

    it was early but it’s really starting to turn towards the Huskers as of late. This could be another Kaden Johnson Type deal. This tome I think the Huskers get him. Either way, it’s definitely a Huskers vs Wisconsin deal for TJ Bollers right now.

    Im guessing that’s because it’s kind of a two way battle for him at the moment. That can always change of course, but as of now it’s Wisconsin and the Huskers.

    Have never understood the winter thing. We hear a lot about the 500 mile radius for NU in recruiting. For tOSU, their 500 mile radius includes Atlanta GA and most of the eastern seaboard. The 500 mile radius for NU includes a lot of farm animals and retired farmers.
    Osborne didn't have trouble recruiting enough talent to field NC level teams. Does NU have good recruiters on staff? Yes. Is NU a national brand? Yes. Does NU have a product to sell? Early playing time if you are good enough.
    Parents like to see their kids compete, so those schools in more population dense regions of the country have a natural recruiting advantage. NU's problem is one one of placement from a lot of humans, not one of weather.

    Thomas Fidone is now at 71% Huskers vs 29% undecided with crystal balls. He’s definitely trending towards the Huskers. Keep it up coaches and lock this young man down. GBR

    When your alleged run of good years is shorter than your run of bad years do you no longer consider yourself a blue blood and just look at the uptick period as a blip?
