    Outstanding! Looking forward to watching you star here, Mr. McWilson!

    BTW, here's me thinking about how we have a well thought of head coach out of Ohio, who played there, as we enter the Big 10:
    Run, Riley, run!

It could very well be true that the Youngstown/CMooney ties are stronger than the affinity for THE state school with questionable ethics.

    No need to be so dismissive.
    Yeah, Michigan seems to pull its fair share of players out of Ohio.

    Full disclosure: I grew up in an era of Husker football when it was blasphemous for a coach to say he was "spooked" out of calling a run play. Of course, that was when hard-nosed running defined the program.

    It's difficult to establish a strong run game without firm resolve. Daily resolve. In too many instances such as when Nebraska calls for passes on third-and-3 in four-down territory a lack of commitment is evident.

    I don't think I assign as much negative connotation to the word "dismissive" as you do, RR.

    I did not intend to be confrontational towards either you or N2FL. Apologies.
