Please take the discussion of results/coaches to another forum.Plenty of time left for us to string together a couple of winning seasons and win him back. And hell, if we have a losing season this year, plenty of time for the next coach to recruit him too. And if THAT coach loses, plenty of time for the coach AFTER that to get him to transfer. What a world we live in Husker fans.
has any of them had success? i think they have all been rookie contracts and then low level backups.I'm not going to fault any QB for selecting OSU. Going back to Tyrell Prior in the Trussell years, only one of their QBs wasn't drafted. The one that wasn't bounced around the league for 4 years as a UDF (TJ Barrett). When it comes to high end QB play and putting guys in the League, 'Bama, OU, OSU, and USC are lapping the field.
Not really, no pro bowlers in the group (time will tell about Fields). They do a good job of getting them there, once there... Bama and OU are the same. Everyone makes the league, but they haven't excelled yet.has any of them had success? i think they have all been rookie contracts and then low level backups.
Enjoy the bench.Can’t blame a kid for choosing a winning program over a losing one… and relationships and culture-fit matter quite a bit.
Would’ve been great to see him choose NU. But with the current state of college football, never say never. He could very well end up at NU (or somewhere else) by the end of his college days.
As is always the case (for me) with highly touted high-school athletes, it’s all about where and how they end their college days versus where and how they ended their high school days.
5 Star performance/results out of high school doesn’t always equate to 5 Star performance/results in college, but it’s certainly a useful indicator to narrow the field of choice.

For kicks and giggles, I went back and looked at Pro Bowl rosters. In the last 10 years only two schools have had two Pro Bowl QBs..... Cal (Rodgers and Goff) and Louisville (Jackson and Bridgewater).
No one really thought he would commit to Nebraska , did they?
Haven’t had a “top shelf” player fo a long time.Exactly. This upcoming year will go a long ways in determining what type of talent we can attract. If it turns out to be another bust we'll need to rely on the power of the new head coach to bring in some of these top shelf players.
