    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?)

    "Every Wednesday it's like, ‘Holy moly, this is the Super Bowl.’" Mike Cavanaugh on the media attention the NU O-line coach receives

    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.
    We’re not going to be a dropback passing team, or pro-style, like we were at Oregon St. because of our skill set here. You don’t coach plays, you coach players. - NU HC Mike Riley

    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.)
