    Iowa is thumping their chest because they're in the midst of the best 5 year run in history, Nebraska is in one of their worst. That will soon change.

    Guys, you're making way too much out of this. I simply said that if I were a college kid, I wouldn't buy into the "prepare yourself for the NFL" recruiting talk, and wouldn't spend 3-5 years in cold weather if I didn't have to. If I were a talented recruit, I would enjoy my college years in a warm climate, then would go wherever I had to to make $$$ in the NFL.

    The fact is, and always has been, that family and friends win out over weather, tradition, great coaches, etc.. more often than any other factor. Statistics have shown that over and over. That's why our recruiting philosophy is to 'win' the 500-mile radius, and try to get as many kids out of the hot recruiting geographies like Florida, California, Texas, and Georgia as we can.

    And the funny thing is that there isn’t much of a gap between us even now.

    Because there is a bevy of talent right in the Ohio backyard. They are only behind Florida, California, Texas, and maybe Georgia in terms of the numbers of D1 athletes the state produces every year. And they get the pick of the litter...every year. And they don't share the top athletes with numerous schools. They take the top athletes in the state, then Michigan gets some good talent too, then the rest of us fight over the scraps.

    More than checking it out... actually posting in it! How he doesn’t see this would be pretty amazing, if he wasn’t an Iowa fan.

    Didn't Georgia recruit the #1 qb three recruiting cycles in a row? We should be recruiting the best qb we can each and every year.

    Some fans are still stuck on former coaches who actually had 'their' guy and didn't recruit a qb every year, let alone a top one.

    That excitement lasts for their first snowball fight. It ends when they have to chisel out their car in the morning.

    Huskers now up to 86% to 14% undecided for CBS on Thomas Fidone. Looking good for the Huskers ;)

    Boom! Let’s hope he is N. Game changer at tight end. He was smoking DBs at the National Combine last month. This kid could be a match up nightmare for opposing defenses in the future.

    honestly not even Fongs means anything... too many times I’ve seen him put in a CB only to change it.... he has a high hit rate because he changes his predictions... the point being these kids change their minds quite often... we have one very big thing going for us with this kid, and that’s the fact that he grew up a husker fan. I’m sure he will do is due diligence but when it comes down to it he has the opportunity to play for his favorite team and close to home... I think that’s a hard combo to pass up

    The “experts” the Husker insiders have a great deal of confidence that both Fidone AND Bollers will be N.

    He would have to sit the bench at Iowa for a couple of years maybe that’s what is scary to him?

    The only question to be asked is why haven’t you been banned on here yet. You’re obviously just here to troll.

    That was the reason why Larry Station didn’t play at Nebraska and went to Iowa, he would have had to sit out for a couple of years to start..

    If iowa wanted him that bad, they would be on him, like even going to one of his basketball games.
    Iowa needs to learn, you dont just offer 40-50 guys when those guys become higher rated.
    We has a coach who also didn't want to work that hard, fewer offers, didn't stay on top of it, going that extra mile.
    Nine wins a year was good enough for him, and I see the same thing for iowa.

    Just because Iowa’s staff doesn’t offer as many as kids as Nebraska it doesn’t mean they don’t work hard. They just have different recruiting philosophy’s. I’m not sure if they’ve been to any of Fidone hoops games but they do go to prospects hoops games and wrestling meets when they can.

    I’ll vouch for that seen Noah Fant play a high school basketball game in Millard and Iowa had some Asst coaches at the game, but he already had committed to the Herky’s..

    I don’t pay for Rivals anymore but in the Lounge Blair is always posting updates on where coaches are going and whyvghey are going and they do go out to watch kids in their other sports. I’m guessing every school sends coaches out to prospects events. If not then they are definitely making a mistake.

    You can ever have too many good players. You never know if a kid will get hurt, get homesick, quit school, get in trouble, etc...
