this may be of some local interest
Thurston to Nebraska
Glad I was "buckled up" for the announcement
Kalis is at Michigan RIGHT NOW!!
We already know!
Yeah, I have a feeling that's part of the buckle up message...
Come on down, Kalis, Diamond, and Garnett/Banner!
Nice pickup for Nebraska. Got his last visit and the only finalist he visited more then once so not a huge surprise.
Nebraska, Nice pickups the last two days between he and McMullen.
starting to be concerned about Nebraska?! They're probably the best team in the league already.
The writing's been on the wall about Thurston for awhile. Sad to see we missed out on him, but I hope he finds success at Nebraska and loses all four years to Michigan.
Thurston clearly wasn't buckled up...
Happy for Thurston, happy for Nebraska.
NOW I WANT COMMITZ.
If Peat does follow his brother to Nebraska he and Thurston would make sweet bookend tackles for them.
He's a good prospect, but I would rather hold spots for some of the higher rated guys we have on our radar.
We are not going to get Peat. People need to get that through their brains.
Take high quality four-stars like Thurston if you can get them and be very happy.
This is hurting ND more than us. ND wanted him pretty bad
Come on down Bars, Kalis and Diamond.
Alot of rumors swirling around Vanderbilt for Bars. There is suppose to be a group of 6 that might make their announcement around the same time for them.
I'd like Bars, but if he ain't coming it would be cool to see Vandy screw up the SEC a little bit ala Northwestern in the mid-90s B1G.
Nebraska is gonna have a great class....
So are Wisconsin and Penn State...
Penn State is more ominous because they have more top targets in PA, like Noah Spence. The state of Wisconsin lacks the talent PA has, so Wisco would need a few more national recruits to finish the pace they have started.
Pelini signed 28 players his first year at NU, then redshirted most of the class.
Only my seatbelt saved me from going straight through my computer screen. TomVH, you saved me...
Was about to post in the prediction thread. Guess this was almost assumed since he took a 2nd visit recently, plus his brother is out there. Good luck to the young man, except for one game a year...Go Blue!!!
Also, wtf happened to that Prediction thread? Did someone bomb it?
I was wondering the same thing.
The man who did that is a hero. It had to be done.
What about Lovie? She going too?
Sorry. I am contractually obligated by Brian to never miss a GI reference whenever possible.
Since we're making goofy predictions and whatnot in order to wait for the "Buckle Up" news to come through, allow me to raise an important subject, Ginger v. Mary Ann.
Now, back when the show was on, I thought Ginger was the hot one, because she was so much more glamorous. However, as time went by, Ginger became enormous while Mary Ann stayed cute. Besides, I think Mary Ann had a freaky side whereas Ginger probably just was along for the ride.
I am casting my vote for Mary Ann . . .
And BTW, congrats on Nebraska, Paul - great program, though we still have to beat you every year . . .
Well, you have to take occupation into account. Movie stars are going to age badly due to the hard living on a desert island. Mary Ann comes from hardy stock, she'll whether that lifestyle better.
was Mrs. Howell. Give her a couple of coconut rum punches and she's a freaky lady.
But I've been a Ginger man since before I was a man.
And by no means whatsoever does the term Ginger man bear any intentional reference to C-Rex.
For Big Red. Good news for them, hope there is great news for us LATER today!
then Muller to Rutgers, then Olson to Northwestern, now Thurston to Nebraska. Next it's our turn.
What just happened to the Kalis thread? What is going on here?
I don't know, but I'm scared! Wha...what's happening around here?
Took it down because it was based off information from premium sites.
Can you imagine just how much damage/fun a pissed off & drunk Tom could have with the people on this board?
The mind reels.
So while I would have liked to have Thurston, is it weird that I feel a little relieved that we still have room available for the other OLinemen we are in on?
Good pickup for Nebraska, but it was obvious. He had just gotten back from a trip to Lincoln.
I was antsy at work in anticipation, so I decided to give up and go home early. I left at 3:15, and it takes about an hour to get home, so I was expecting to see one or two Hello: posts when I got home, but it looks like I didn't miss anything..
Now buckling back up
