    Marsh is not going to play QB and three of those listed are walk-on's so really we have only three QBs on scholarship so we are not as good there as you try to make it sound....so taking 2 Qbs would not be out of bounds and could actually be argued is a real need...

    So I disagree with you on that....

    Also we do not need two RBs and I could go on....

    Based on sheer numbes 25-28 we have the room for a second QB and as I said I could argue the need....

    We have Martinez, Carnes, Marsh, Armstrong, 2012 recruit, Brokemeier, Ridder and Fife at QB next year. We are pretty good there. I'd much rather see us get a second RB, third tight end, actually recruit a competent center, third or fourth d-end, extra d-tackle, safety..you name it.
    Based on sheer numbers...the need is greater elsewhere IMO

    I agree with you that if we take 25-28...we have the room for a second RB. We'd also have the room for the second RB.

    I'll be very surprised, very pleasantly surprised, in fact, if we take 25-28 though.

    I'd like to see it...but I'll remain skeptical on that.

    We don't need one this year....we do next year. We should be carrying more RBs than QBs on the roster. We use alot more of them.

    And right now we have 4 QBs. We moved Marsh...I don't see us moving him back.

    Marsh will not play QB at Nebraska....with all due respect he was a 2** 5.3 rated out of high school....your reaching on your QB argument big-time...

    Frankly allot of folk were surprised Marsh even got a scholarship to be bluntly honest....

    Remain skeptical...thats your right....

    So we don't need a QB this year? Thats what your saying....are you serious??? I'm starting to wonder.....

    We don't have enough carries for the RBs we have now....with Cross we are 4 deep....and throw Marrow into the pot and its 5 deep....yet we need two more RB according to you....even with Burkhead graduating we will still be 5 deep with one RB in this class....thats enough.....

    I'm not saying he will play...I'm saying he is at QB. We are slated to be carrying 4 guys on scholarship at QB next year, without anyone in this class. We are slated to be carrying 3 guys on scholarship at RB (listing Marrow as a FB). That shouldn't happen.

    That's not what I am saying at all. What I am saying is that we don't need 2 QBs this class. We'd be dumb not to take one. It's the second one that shouldn't be a priority. We have much bigger needs. If we get to 25-28, that changes things, but like I said above, I'd be surprised if we got there.

    We are 4 deep this year. We lose our workhorse in Rex. Next year we have Green, Abdullah and Cross. Lots of potential there. Lots of unproven inexperience too. And considering most years over the past 8 years, we've needed 3 healthy running backs...it'd be safe to have a second guy in this class. You add two guys in this class, you can redshirt one for the future and possibly a second if all of the above pan out. If someone blows a knee or Cross is a bust...we will need another guy for next year. IMO, we should never have less than 5 scholarship RBs considering the wear and tear that gets put on the position.

    Assuming we take one of each in this class that leaves us with 5 guys on scholarship at QB next year with only 4 at RB. If we only had room to take one extra player...it makes a lot more sense that it's at RB. Considering the wear and tear of the position and the number of guys that actually play...it's not wise to have 2 more guys on scholarship at QB then at RB.

    He won't play....thus we have three scholarship QBs and Martinez will graduate next year and Carnes will be a Jr.....a real argument to take two and if TM goes down this year we are going to be in a world of hurt experience wise......using your logic.....

    As for RB....I still disagree....Marrow is going to be used at FB and RB too......honestly we didn't have enough carries to go around last year.....and one RB transfered.....and two graduated early and never saw the field in Ward and Okafor.....where as Abdullah and Green actually have some experience and should see more time this year....

    I would be surprised if we take more than one RB this year based on all I have read and been told.....

    I agree that it's a bit early to be panicking, especially with the commits we have so far I think this is a pretty good start to the class.

We have had guys just as talented as he recruited and on the roster. I believe C.Green would have been a valuable weapon given a system that fits his skill set. Brion Carnes is just as talented, really hasn't started his career yet. Martinez has two seasons of eligiblity to prove that statement wrong and he's been pretty productive dispite is major flaws. I'm not going to mention Armstrong in that category because he's still taking pictures at Prom but I think he's pretty talented also. So, agreeing with RR, you don't know that so it's not a stretch at all. It's not like Reesing is a once in a lifetime type talent.

    Marsh is closer to playing QB than you may think, RR.

    With Green leaving it appears another back might be a good idea.

    We haven't. But we also can't say we have either. I don't like making assumptions about things that have yet to occur.
