    ND going to try to steal recruit number 3

    ND offered Rios. I hated Notre dame before and now i hope the school burns to the ground. Brian kelly please recruit by yourself and stop trying to steal NE potential recruits. I guess this is the offer rios has been waiting for. Well see Hopefully they are 2 little 2 late.

    It's frustrating to be sure, and I've got plenty of reasons to dislike ND, however I don't think recruit thievery is one of them. Nebraska is out there trying to poach recruits from other places right now.

    Does Kelly do any of his own work?

    This happened a few years ago, too, with some other schmuck coach. Unfortunately, he got a couple of NU's commits.

    I hope Bo can close some of our recruits and gain a few more. Seems to me like we are behind the other universities in getting committs...........

    Sure, its ok if they TRY to poach--as long as they don't succeed.

    We need some improvement on recruiting, which is one of the reasons I'd like to bring in a strong recruiter.

    Interesting. People who know recruiting (as in do it for a living) say we have great recruiters on our staff.

    How do you suppose a "good recruiter" would help when kids get their dream offer?

    I can see why TO build a program around kids who grew up in or near Nebraska. It's tough to consistently pull guys away.

    Nonetheless, we are recruiting well.

    The same way Bill Busch and John Blake got recruits here.....The same way Oregon recruits top notch athletes...Do you think Oregon was LaMichael James' first choice? Hint he was from Texarkana, TX (also JP recruited him and everyone seems to think JP is such a great recruiter. Well, we didn't get Lamichael James). Most of Oregon's recruits aren't from Oregon. You may argue California is a lot closer to Oregon, but San Francisco is about 10 hrs to Eugene, which is about the same amount of drive time from Dallas, TX to Lincoln, NE. LA is even further away from Eugene. So, Oregon consistently pulls away kids from places that are far away. Our staff should be able to as well. You can keep making excuses though. We aren't recruiting well right now. Our class may end up ok, but right now we have about as strong of a class as Colorado (who has sucked for years) and PSU (who went through a major scandal).

    Your reply will probably be something along the lines of "Bo has us headed in a great direction!" or "We are recruiting very well." A statement of confidence in the coaches with no real evidence behind it.

    Larry Johnson Sr would be our man!!!!!!! We need to go get him. He may be out of a job with changes coming at PSU!!! The guy can recruit! His D's are always extremely good!

    It doesn’t matter if the glass is half full or half empty. What matters is you have a glass that has something in it. Some people have no glass, or have a glass with nothing in it. So appreciate all that is in your life and quit questioning whether your glass in half full or half empty.

    Why? Because they were on Callahan's staff? They may not have been great coaches but they were damn good recruiters. Like it or not...Bo's staff does not land highly touted recruits like the two listed below:

    You mean like Oregon paying a recruiting service $25,000 to steer players their way? I'm not sure we want to do that....

    As for no evidence in your last line....I think you need to go and do some homework before you make statements like that because you are basing that on no evidence....and are going to look awfully silly on signing day....

    Take the time to read the threads in this forum....or do your homework elsewhere....you'll find your statement is incorrect....

    And yeah we get it your crusade to get rid of Bo Pelini continues....good luck cus its not going to happen.....

    what about Green, he was 5* and one of the top5 backs last year out of high school. Or Rodriguez, wasn't he a 4 or 5* lineman. Heard was a 4*, Turner was a 4 or 5*. That's if you are basing all of this off stars alone.

    Its not like we haven't had and stud or two commit to us every class.

    Ok, you can knock them for the $25k issue, which doesn't seem to have amounted to any sanctions as far as I'm aware of. But that school does a very good job recruiting out of state. And CM Husker frequently says stuff like and backs it up with no evidence. I was not trying to state there is no evidence to support those notions, but he frequently argues with statements like I mentioned before and does not back them up. I said right in my post that this class could end up being ok, but as it stands right now it looks like we're behind and our class is not very strong.

    A great recruiter gets every kid he goes after. No one ever turns him down. Thats the guy we want, right, Seth?
