    And some didn't.....thus how we are able to get some of them to commit to us....

    I don't know how you can take it as a bad thing unless you expect all of our kids to be from either Texas, Florida, or California....which I would hope even you don't expect....

    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.

    We were so worried about losing Texas footprint, but looks like we found somewhere to pick up the slack. Look at the quality of guys we are pulling out of Ohio. Early, guys like Marlowe and some Card Mooney that were largely overlooked. Now, guys that have multiple BIG offers. That's a good thing. we need to recruit the Rust Belt heavily. There's a good talent pool to choose from, and any guy we pull is one less guy our conference foes get. Less geographic hurdle, less 'weather' hurdle, less cultural hurdle...I can't see it as anything but positive. We still need to take care of 500 mile radius and get some 'Southern speed', but having a bonafide presence in a stronghold like Ohio is crucial, IMO.

    Notre Dame only had one Rudy but Nebraska gets a new crop of Rudys every season
