    That tweet is what we are basing this on? Not trying to be that guy, but he could have been shouting out to his buddies to get over to his place/online so they can start an evening of NBA 2k. Is there more info than the tweet?

    And for the record, I absolutely hope that his tweet means he's handled business and will be at Nebraska in the fall. Just skeptical about cryptic tweets.

    99% sure that's what he's talking about.

    Looking like Tutt is swinging our way, too. We're going to have one of the most insane secondaries in the nation in about 2-3 years.

    Blades looked pretty talented with the ball in his hands from his highlight film. Maybe he gets a look at WR too.

    I heard this as a rumor and the person was pretty confident, but I don't know their source. I'm not a twitter guy, but the twitter stuff does look promising as well.

    I haven't read a whole ton of Blades twitter, but he doesn't seem nearly as active tweeting to his bros about inane stuff.

    While its a strong guess for me that the tweet was positive for us, I'm pretty darn sure it wasn't him kicking off an NCAA FB Xbox fest.

    No but I'll be shocked if he's not. Many have stated he'll be here by fall camp for sure.

    I sure hope so. I mean seriously think about the potential here with L Jackson, Blades and Bookie. Then you can add in Goodrich or Williams, which ever ones play DB. Still lost which ones are our DBs or our WRs. Either way WRs and DBs should be loaded for years to come.

    Tell me that doesn't have the potential to shut any and all passing games down in near future ;)

    C Williams, Bookie,Goodrich, E Blades, L Jackson, Dismuke, Lee (hopefully lights clicking now) A Reed, J Doman and A Williams?! I see a future number 1 in the country passing defense. Hell I know I'm missing some or two.

    Ha. Indeed. I lived in Rome for a while and had good wine with every meal, followed up at the end with Grappa just for the effect.

    Not true........it has been elevated from dregs for the less fortunate to yuppie(is that still a word?) status. I will agree the "finish" may be considered by some to be harsh, somewhere between pear kirsch and bookers bourbon, but a shot or two and you know you've accomplished something.....exactly what, I don't know.

    Talking about how it is made. Not the taste, the effect or who is the primary consumer.

    Yes......it's the leftovers of the leftovers....I also much prefer the "first pressing" product.

    Future number 1? You realize it depends on the pass rush don't you?

    You also realize that shut down corners and solid safety play helps the pass rush don't you?

    I don't care what he wrote, although I don't see anything, in the post you replied to, where He mentioned pass rush.

    You are attempting to undervalue the the imporance of the DBs by insinuating the pass rush is the most important component.
