    So does that mean he has to sign by the 15th? Or can he still wait till February and then just enroll next fall?

    I’m sure he will sign somewhere so he can practice in the Spring.

    Didn’t think they could visit till the The 20th? Isn’t that when the dead period is over?

    So is it safe to assume since he didn't sign today that the odds are now he signs with Wisconsin?

    That’s what happens sometimes when a team that is relevant jumps into the fray. :(

    That fact he has not yet signed tells me it’s us. He was all set for Iowa until we got into the mix. Probably wants to visit with the coaches more.

    You’d wait to if Wisco came calling and you were picking between the purgatory of college football in iowa and a 4-8 Nebraska team.

    If he does not signs by Friday I think he is N. If not, I think the Bad-gers get him

    I wouldn’t say that. It could mean that he wants to check them out.

    If he wants to play at the next level at LB he will sign with Iowa.

    Yep. Because Nebraska and Wisconsin never send LBs to the league.

    From OWH 5 hours ago: Nebraska starts school on Jan. 8. The last day to register for a full load of spring semester classes is Jan. 16. Iowa starts class on Jan. 16.

    So if Honas visits Wisconsin in mid-January, advantage Badgers and Hawkeyes.

    Honas just hasn't decided yet if he'll make the visit to UW.

    "I don't have to rush to sign this week because I have until January 15," Honas said.

    Also: if he happens to enjoy 5 loss seasons, moral victories, and a fan base with collective short man’s complex.

    A 5 loss season would be a big step up for the huskers.

    No, see—that’s where you’re wrong. While 5 loss seasons may earn you lifetime contracts in Iowa City, nobody else strives for Iowa Football’s definition of success.

    But congrats on your 4-3 record against Nebraska since we joined the conference and your tenth 5-loss season in the past 13 years: for a program like Iowa, those are mighty impressive numbers. At this rate, you’re sure to earn that 2nd major bowl win since the 1950s any time now.

    Says the Nebraska fan! I hope your right but I doubt this kid has the same scarlet tinted glasses we do. It makes a lot of sense if you look at it from a rational point of view

    I’ve got a good buddy who follows Iowa about as closely as you can without being a stocker. And he says from what he is hearing Honas is Nebraska bound. Doesn’t believe he will come to Iowa. I hope he is right. He was actually pissed since most considered him an Iowa lean for a good majority of time. We will see how it plays out?!?!?

    I watched his film - what a nose for the ball - reminds me of a Ray Lewis type LB. Hits the ball carrier with a brutal impact. Loved watching the film. How did he not get a scholly out of high school?????

    Iowa isn't the team I'm most worried about, it's Wisconsin. The badger staff is very good at closing in on guys and they've been relevant in the Big10 West for some time.

    The guy I talked to says Honas' brother (who plays at Kansas State), is saying 75% chance it's Nebraska, 25% it's KSU? Didn't mention Wisconsin at all? If he wants to enroll early at Nebraska he's going to have to make a decision before too long. Iowa and Wisconsin start later than us, and I believe he wants to enroll early. He got his info from the Iowa Premium Board.

    I thought we were “late” to the game. :rolleyes:
    If distance is a factor, Madison couldn’t be a worse choice. Why he would ever choose to play for a school who’s never won anything and wear that fat ugly W on your helmet when magic is gonna happen right up the road in Lincoln.

    Hope you are right. The timing of things is what has me questioning. From what I heard, he was set on signing with the Huskers but there was a possible wrench thrown into the situation. That wrench is Wisconsin.

    Reality is this, if he was going to sign with Iowa or Nebraska it would have happened yesterday, no if ands or buts about it.

    Wisconsin entering the picture has changed the dynamic, he is giving them enough consideration that he told the others not so fast my friend.

    I’m a member of the premium Iowa board and the word is nobody is in the lead for this guy until after a Wisky visit.

    that makes zero sense. it doesn't matter who has good LBs lately. well it might in an ignorant recruit's mind but it shouldn't.
    NFL players come from everywhere and isn't determined by who your coach is or where you played college ball.
    thats just some myth fans came up with to try to differentiate their school from others. neb / iowa/ wisconsin none of them are BETTER than others at making good LBs. Wherever the good LBs go to school is where the good LBs will come from

    Then why all the talk about how the new staff is going to make our players look better just from better coaching and scheme? A good player can look pretty bad with bad coaching and/or a bad scheme.

    We that seems like total nonsense to me.
    How did NUproduce all those NFL lineman in the 80s and 90s? Do you think we won the genetic lottery in Nebraska?
    The world is full of talented guys that went to schools that didn’t know how to mold their talent.
