    Nicknaming the Recruits

    N2FL, Red Reign, BornToBeRed, et. al. have the ranking and scouting thing covered, so I though the rest of us could provide some valuable insight on what nicknames Husker Nation should assign these fine young athletes.

    Here are my early favorites:

    Josh Banderas, LB (Nebraska) - "The Bandit" or "Banderas the Bandit" (Will hopefully be a self-fulfilling prophecy of a LB that is great in coverage and routinely intercepts/strips the ball.)

    Tre'vell Dixon, Ath (Louisiana) - "Baby Please Don't Go" (As in, "Baby, please don't go down to New Orleans, you know [we] love you so...." in the style of Chris Berman.)

    Marcus McWilson, S (Ohio) - "McBurglar" (I plan on the secondary returning to ball-hawking form.)

    A.J. Natter, DE (Wisconsin) - "Natty" (As in, did you see "Natty LITE that guy up!?" See what I did there?)

    I always though that nick names can come easy if you just add "izzle" behind it like Snoop Dogg always does.

    Josh Bandizzle

    Tre'vizzle Dixon

    Marcus McWizzle

    A.J. Natter...........izzle.............



    Fist bump on that.
    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.

    Courtney Love, LB (Ohio) - "McLovin'" (An homage to the the movie with the same name that will be used to describe the way the athletic linebacker treats opponents: Superbad.)
