    Wisconsin insiders think they'll get everyone, and when they go elsewhere it's due to academic issues

    This doesnít seem important in the least.

    Lovie Smith has 3 commits, we have 21. Who is working hard?!?

    Nebraska has 5. They seem to be holding out for 4 and 5 stars that may never commit to the Huskers. They fancy themselves in the same conversations as Alabama, Georgia, Clemson and OSU. Michigan is somewhat average according to them. They are far behind those schools in total commits and average rating. Not sure what is wrong except they are really just another program like Iowa, who they are behind as well. Fans are nuts though.

    Nebraska is saving their offers for the 4-5* guys that lose their offers from other schools after committing crimes, fail school, etc.

    I wrote this on the UConn thread in the b-ball forum, but also relevant here: I donít think Frost is going to be able to pull a rabbit out of the hat.

    Meaning, I donít believe that Frost will be able to convince enough 4/5 star kids to uproot and move to the middle of nowhere (Lincoln, Nebraska) from California, Texas, and Florida, on a consistent enough basis to satisfy Nebraska diehards and boosters. Which means obtain Clemson levels of success where that hadnít been there before (or not in a long time).

    Pelini couldnít do it. Callahan and Riley certainly couldnít do it. And by the time youíre back to even Solich, that was a different time and age. Certainly back to Osborne. Those days are gone. He used players that would be impossible today.

    Donít think Frost can pull it off.

    Considering 40-50%+ percent of blue chippers aren’t committed yet probably too soon to pop the champagne on Frost’s recruiting woes. As noted they have geography and recent difficulties to contend with however.

    Well, Frosty did get the WR we were seeking last session. WR's name was Hollywood if I recall correctly.

    It's not a race to see who can fill their class first.

    Considering in his first class at Nebraska he was hired just a few weeks before the early signing day and still ended up with a top 25 class that year and the 15th ranked class last year, it is definitely premature to talk of recruiting woes there.
