Always great to pick up big recruits. Can't wait for the Army AA game and national signing day. Did I mention that the #1 RB/#1 recruit overall committed to OSU ages ago?

That guy is good, but Nebraska also got a big time QB. 6'6 235 Josh Freeman. He will also be in the Army All Star game. The Husker's will be back soon. Also, watch out Michigan in the Alamo Bowl. The Husker's are pumped for this game, and Michigan is not very excited to be in the Alamo.

I gave up looking at rankings a while ago.
We've had kids come in practially unranked (Dan Morgan, Santana Moss, Sinorice Moss, Sean Taylor, Warren Sapp) and play awesome. We've had highly ranked kids that have flooped (seemingly Ryan Moore, Magic Benton back in the day).

Williams the WR from USC now with the Lions was a 3 star reciever out of high school.

Well, Scout did have Wells as a #1 overall anyway. The state playoffs around the nation probably shook up the rankings a bit, and since his team failed to even make the playoffs . . .

This is from Scout.com it is a list of team rankings as to position of players. Its on DBs now. This tells you how your favorite team ranks per position. You can change it by the quick link that shows postions off to the right.
My favortie ND ranks as QBs 2nd, RB 1st, WR/TE Tie 2nd, OL 1st, DB 1st

Nebraska has 8 JuCo commits. They're known for going after them, but can someone tell me why? Just curious.

I just don't buy into the hype of of high school recruits. There are countless kids who have been touted as saviors and had marginal careers at best. Dan Kendra, Ron Powlous, & Brock Berlin come to mind.

Nebraska just had a big blow to their recruiting class today when Josh Freeman decommited and gave Kansas State his verbal. He said NU was leaning towards redshirting him, and he wants to play right away.
Oh well, you win some and you lose some. All in all this is still another good year for recruting for them, just like last year.
Callahan has pressure on him, but he does not have to win the Alamo bowl to keep his job. I think he has the program going in the right direction.

Watch out for Ryan Mallet next year, from Texarkana, TX. I think he'll be a Wolverine and he'll be a great one.

I'm a UF fan...heck i go there, but I'm very carefull about not buying into all the HYPE around tebow yet. Leak was just as big when he got to UF as Tebow is now, look how that has changed in 3 years.Originally Posted by DieTrying
Also to say recruting rankings means nothing like some of you say is retarted. If that were the case we wouldn't have these college powerhouses who consistently get the best players in the nation and stay in the top 15 year in and year out. Recruting is complex...certain players work better in certain systems etc.

Wait until he's got to face a Chavis D (or Miami's in '08 if we get Coker fired at the end of this year) live for the whole game. Instead of these gimicky plays.
He did play well against LSU though.
(That doesn't make him #1 though.)
BTW - where the hell you been Die???

Busy. I still lurk around the boards every now and then, but not much.Originally Posted by jmh80
LSU had the #1 ranked rush defense in the country and Tebow bowled over their best player. SEC teams know he is going to run, they bring all their men on the line and he still averages 6 yards per carry.
Call it what you want (HYPE ), but Tim Tebow is 6'3 and 225 lbs, runs better than some RBs, has a cannon for an arm and has the heart of a ****in bull. Tebow and this class have a VERY bright future...quote me

LSU had the #1 Pass Def. However even though teams know Tebow is going to run, they still aren't stacking the box. With a spread offense running 4 wide it's hard to stack the box for the run anways.
10-09-2006, 07:37 AM
It is way different running out of the QB draw following the Guard and Fullback - than actually playing runningback. I worry about Tebow fumbling or getting his legs broken the way he runs. Some people are already drawing the Vince Young and Michael Vick comparsions... this is about the stupidiest thing I have ever heard.
Who is Tim Tebow??
He is Alex Smith!!!! (but slightly bigger and an inch shorter)
think Utah Meyer spread offense...
That is what Meyer wanted!!! That is why Mustain and the other QBs did not get a look.
Tebow isn't 6-3. He is 6-2 at best, I don't care what gatorzone says. I am on exactly eye level with him. Unless I am 6-3.
people in gainesville (not saying people in this thread) really don't understand football if they think we have Michael Vick.
10-09-2006, 04:04 PM
I don't compare him to anybody. I just think hes going to be great. My team is 6-0, has 2 very good QBs and a very bright future. The 'Zook Factor' is officially gone.
10-09-2006, 04:06 PM
i knew that would be taken the wrong way.. I just said people in Gainesville... no one on this thread.

Even a broken clock is right twice a day.
To parallel to football - at one point, Larry Coker coached THE best football team of all time and won a national title.
If the kid works out - I'll give him props.
Until then, he's a gimmick with free-throw TD's.
10-10-2006, 01:01 AM
I'm at a loss of words. Also with the way all of your posts have been going I wont be suprised to see a headline on the news to the effect of "Coker was "tragically" kidnapped and is unable to coach this week" hahaOriginally Posted by jmh80
