You will have to keep us posted if the RSS police don't get you.....
Look it up ☝
I am fairly confident the same thing went down with Desmond Fitzpatrick!
Not Louisville, they have an impeccable reputation.
you forgot the winking smiley face..... We may still have a decent shot at him. I don't blame him one bit for postponing his decision. I would more than likely take every last second I could if it were me. Tough decision.
Love the comment about him competing at LG. Just like Wilson and Farmer will compete at RG, we need that.
If his major motivations are business school and alumni reach as the article talks about
Ucla are going to be tough to beat
True, but we do have Warren Buffett
But it's just a holding company that is really just a shell
Nothing really there and warren lets his companies run autonomously no interference
I was in his office back in the early 90s they have a tiny staff, back then an ugly old building they were renting space from
A threadbare reception area with worn furniture
My office was bigger and nicer than warrens then lol
I think it still sounds very positive for us. He just wants to make sure he's going to make the best decision for the next five years. Nothing wrong in delaying it a day or two. I do like how our coaches are aggressive on the road!
Idk, that article didn't sound good for us. Smart on his part to not jump to a commitment when coaches are in your home but this just feels like a loss IMO. We'll see, I guess.
I did like his statement about facilities, coaches fans and ALUMNI
Business degrees are worthless, unless it is an MBA from a top 5. Get as technical of an undergraduate as you can stomach ... just saying
There is more than enough evidence through college football history to suggest that these things do exist. Many High school coaches in the south are doing well in the finance department..
Yes, but they revert back to the unedited version before sending it to the plebs on the Husker Board! : )
I hope you don’t give advice to kids as a career.
Not so sure
Out of A&M I had five offers including Xerox, American Hospital Supply and IBM with a business degree. The fine arts guys have the lowest salaries and highest unemployment rates
My son just landed a nice job with an undergraduate business degree. In my experience, it is one of the best undergraduate degrees you can get. And the rising applications (and tuition rates) at the College of Business supports that view.
Oh, everything has to be a conspiracy. How else would people spend their free time? Reading a book, or something ridiculous like that? Nah, much better to ruminate on other schools getting a recruit over us.
LOL at anyone who thinks that Nebraska hasn't paid players before.
Really need to raise the cap on our county scholarship program.
I have several friends and former teammates who were on scholarship at Nebraska
I know for a fact they were not paid
On the other hand I worked for a dealership at Texas a&m when I went to school there and have first hand knowledge of several players who got cars
I processed finance applications on cars they owned they were using as references that had an extremely low balance, very high value, but zero history of payments. They winked at me when I asked them about the loans
Also at A&M all you had to do was look behind the players dorm and see all these amazing cars
A&m repossessed the maroon transam they gave to Dickerson after he backed out of his commitment and signed for more money at smu
It was well known and talked about on the smu 30 for 30
Not all schools cheat
Those that do cheat want to make everyone think everyone does
Everyone does it so it's ok- they want you to think that
It simply isn't true
You're crazy if you think Nebraska is clean and has never paid players. Just because you knew a few that didn't get paid doesn't mean it doesnt/hasn't happened. Some schools are dirtier than others. People have their head in the sand if they think NU is squeaky clean.
I’ve seen transactions take place on several occasions.
Reminds me of the time that I delivering meals to an ill gentleman in his mid thirties. He was from Texas and a highly recruited DL out of HS. He was deciding between Baylor (near his hometown) and NU. Then all of a sudden a school in a certain western state not quite to CA with a squeaky clean reputation contacted him, offered him a new car, IIRC $25,000 cash, a couple of young ladies who would take the papers he wrote and turn them into A level work, and a handful of other benefits. This guy then called the coach recruiting him at NU and said "here's what school B has offered, what's your offer?" The coach told him (he said this is pretty much a quote) "that's not how we do things at NU. We know B does it but we're not going to do it and if we find out any alums are doing it, we put a stop to it. Best of luck to you." The man went to B, did well, and left after his jr. year for the NFL, where he had a cup of coffee with a few teams before becoming a pro wrestler. Says in his heart he wished he had gone to NU, but his family was dirt poor and he couldn't turn down the money.
I doubt we're seeing that these days but there is no way people weren't getting paid in the past. I wont say Osborne was as bold as Barry but I'm sure some rules were bent along the way. If people looked they would see a couple of cases where Nebraska did have major infractions under Osborne but they didn't result in major probation so nothing severe came of it. These are the times that they were caught, who knows what they didn't get caught for..
I'm not saying we don't pay players. All I'm saying is when the SEC bagmen come calling, it rarely works out well for us.
You know how hard it would be for the university to catch and eliminate the problem at Nebraska? Its a small state... It shouldn't be that hard one would think.
There are many ways to spread the wealth. No every case is some player being paid himself. High school coaches probably end up with more money in their pockets than the players do.
Wasn't it Suh who got in to a car accident in Lincoln with a Range Rover or something? People were wondering how some college kid was driving around in a vehicle like that. I'm sure some of these kids do acquire these cars in a legit manner who others are receiving it as a benefit.
Almost every BCS school has been put on major probation at some point for something. There are those who have a history of it but when a sport allows for dirty dealings to be made then you better believe that it's happening.
Would they want to catch and eliminate the problem if it really isn't a problem?
Yeah, but did anyone “really” see it happen?
I maintain that every team that plays in the playoff as well as any school that plays in a New Years 6 bowl should automatically undergo an NCAA investigation. Any infractions other than extremely minor ones should lead to a few scholarship reductions.
Same should hold for any elite 8 basketball programs.
You heard it here first, folks. And, from a Moderator on Husker Online no less.
Yea we likenthink we are one of the only teams out there that is perfect and never crossed the line. Hate to tell you guys, I bet every team out there (D1 wise) has crossed the line at some point.
Nebraska has employed John Blake. We’ve paid players.
Would you say they were more like $100 handshakes sans the $500 and up we hear about in the SEC?
I have a good friend that insists that ND is cleaner than Baby Jesus. I tell him to quit abusing himself to the Knute Rockne videos. I think every school has this to a certain degree. Some are just more blatant or better at hiding it than others.
I am curious, however, if any of our coaches knew to what degree this occurred.
Adrian Fiala admitted it happened at Nebraska on the radio. Not sure why people can't cope with it.
True that. Danny Nee also had a few shananigans go on while he may or may not have been looking the other way.
What's with this group and thinking it's cool to try to ruin the reputation of NU?
Most people call it something else.
