    What is the status of Safefy Nick Pola-Gates? I see we offered his cousin. Haven’t heard much about him, was just curious if we still had a shot or if this is a last desperation move to try to get him to think about Nebraska more? His cousin looks pretty impressive as well

    I think it's b/t Between Bama, Neb, ASU and USC. People saying his parents pushing him to Neb, but he likes Bama. We got a shot. Dont count out sneaky Herm.

    I think we are running second to Bama right now, so we have a shot. Bama is also still in on several five star kids, so it is always possible they could fill up and not have room for him.

    So this is more of a “momma knows best”, than an “always do what’s best for you”?

    RBs should always do what is best for them. Safety’s should listen to their parents.

    That’s true for this cycle. But it could change after early signing.

    Or just go the route of a lobotomized Jack Nicholson*...and always always always listen to coach Scott Frost.

    Does this means Frost isn’t getting the last inhome?

    Dumb momma. Cut the apron strings. Most mommas don't know shit about football or being a man. An eighteen year old is a man. Maybe a lump of clay, but an intellectually viable man. The backbone of his character has already be formed.

    Alabama just flipped the #1 safety from Michigan. Wonder if that helps our cause?

    I think ASU is our main competition regardless. He just said he wants his parents to be able to come to all of his games.

    There is nothing intellectually viable about almost every 18 year-old male.

    Az to grand island is a 2 hour flight and cheap. Rent a car and be at stadium 4 hours after they left their home.

    Not quite as viable as being closer to home but yeah, Nebraska has is centrally located so many places are a fairly short air trip away.

    There are direct flights from Phoenix to almost every Pac-12 city, plus they could drive to his home games in a matter of minutes. Getting to all of the Big Ten college towns would not be nearly as easy.

    I hope he comes here, but I don't think it bodes well that he said the most important factor will be whether his parents can make it to all the games.

    Frost and Co. are good, but if they can bring this kid in, then I'll start thinking that Frost and Co. are better than good.

    If Bama is done at safety that's a big deal.

    And it's only the beginning. We will be used to getting great classes in the very near future.

    USC poly draw will be hard to beat. If Frost can win out against USC, it will be huge! GBR

    And I wouldn’t count our Frost either. Anything can happen here. I think you made your point, you don’t think we have much of a shot with this young man and there’s a few that feel we do have a shot. It could go any direct with the young man.

    Has he stated why he is announcing then, as opposed to during the early period? AllStar game?
