    Ratings are meaningless. good coaches do their own filmwork and evaluations.

    I prefer we recruit the guys who fit in our system, and let the Bill Callahans of the world chase star rankings.

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

    I agree with you, however at some point I think the ratings can influence who may or may not even remotely consider NU as a viable option to bring their talents here. Afterall, Nebraska is not the most lucrative location for recruits and considering that by the numbers...most recruits come from East and West Coasts, Texas, and Ohio many of them just dont want leave a 500mile radius becasue they want to stay near family.....SO having consistent top rated recruiting classes could go a long ways in swaying more top tier recruits to take a chance on NU bc other high caliber players are choosing NU and it wouldnt feel out of the norm for them to come here to play out here in middle America. I love Bo and this staff they can really coach up and prepare athletes....can you imagine if it was the norm to bring in consistent top 10 recruiting classes of what Bo and Staff could do with that talent?! We dont need to be top 5, but bt 5-15 should be our norm. WE ARE NEBRASKA WE SHOULDNT EXPECT LESS. Ratings to me personally dont mean much, but to these yound kids it does and im sure that having other top level talent already committed can help lure in more top talent. I bet it was easier for TO to bring in more top notch talent once NU began to win natl. championships adn Big XII Championships. I believe this recruiting class ends up rated at 14 overall which is another step in right direction but it has to stay there at a minimum IMHO. GBR!!! "We just love you man!"

    I'm not a superstitious guy but I have noticed that the games I wear my Black hoodie with the crossbones, our defense really shows up. (CCG vs UT 09, Arizona 09, Missouri 10, aTm 10, MSU 11) Ironically, those were the only games I didn't wear my traditional red. We lost a couple of those games, but it our defense made fans proud.

    Mrs Gypsy and my son who plays water polo for RUHS strolled over from the pool and got a photo on Friday, very nice kid. He was very much in the moment. He enjoyed meeting fans.elite11.jpg

    Thanks for sharing, Gypsy. Every account I have heard tells of Stanton really taking it all in stride. He has no issue conversing with fans, writers, coaches, or anyone else -- He's just well-spoken and well-represented. I love that he held his commitment to his 7 on 7 team rather than compete in the Elite 11. Love that character.
