    Well, you say lots of stuff, all positive all of the time about the Huskers, so I don’t know that you had any more information or insight than anyone else, but I’m happy that it turned out as you proclaimed it would.

    Agreed. I'm super happy he is qualified, but that guy just says dumb shit all of the time hoping it sticks.

    no, I’m calling this out. What dumb shit do I say ALL THE TIME and hope it sticks? Is it the way I defend our Huskers and Frost to Iowa fans that hammer on us for going 4-8 and 5-7 and I remind them their own Head Coach went 1-10 and 3-9 their first 2 years? Or is it because in the beginning of the year I felt very strongly we’d go 8-4 range and I had to defend myself to Iowa trolls over and over again. Then when it didn’t happen and I was wrong, the Iowa trolls came calling me out on it for my summer predictions on the 2019 season?

    Now seriously, what dumb shit do I say ALL THE TIME? I have made some bad calls and I have made some good calls. No different then any of us on here. My biggest flaw is defending our Huskers to these Iowa trolls that live on this board, period.

    No offense to anyone on here but I seen all of us make bad calls, been proven wrong and so on. It’s not only me. But saying I say dumb shit all the time is just bull and wrong. All because I’m over overly to positive? Give me a break with that. Some of you guys are way to negative but I don’t say “Oh he says dumb shit all the time”. I’ll 100% admit, I fight with the Iowa trolls on here and that’s a huge weakness of mine, and I’m trying to stop it all together and ignore them but I don’t say dumb crap all the time. That’s just bull...

    Bear in mind that some things changed with testing requirements to be eligible. ACT and SAT tests are not happening this year.

    IIRC, he still needed to post a qualifying test score. He may well have gotten his score up and done that, with the rules this year with COVID, he didn't have to do that.

    This I'll gladly get behind. Yes, I'm overly positive and try and see the best in our team and yes I been off on a few or number of things but I'm all Husker and I need to ignore the Iowa trolls. Plus side is, I been doing that very thing lately. GBR for life.

    I am certainly one of those that thought he would never make it on campus. I didn't get my info from an article in the local echo chamber paper. I got mine directly from two different sources really close to the situation. Good thing they were wrong. I guess I owe Salt and the OWH a coffee and bagel.

    I believe he and Manning were the only two that were at risk of not qualifying.

    Am I right in that belief, and anybody know what's going in with Manning?

    I'm not sure Manning was ever a qualification risk. at least I never saw any documentation.

    just a lot of hand wringing from the peanut gallery.

    "I know for a fact that Nebraska coaches were in contact with Zavier every day encouraging him," Bellevue West Coach Michael Huffman said. "They've been nothing but great to him."

    hope other recruits out there take notice
