I like that we have the luxury of recruiting a 4-star as a two year project player... 

Also, I wonder if his interest was in Nebraska or just in Scott Frost. I think you somewhat pointed this out, but it certainly seems like he only cared about the Huskers once Frost got there and was still recruiting him. 

And who in their right minds would want to play for Jimbo Fisher? Good choice mate.

I can't believe a douche bag like goofy @$$ "Jimbo" Fisher ever made it as a D1 coach let alone win a natty. He must have some excellent coaches around him because he seems like a total tool.

While I totally understand what you're getting at and generally agree with your assessment of Jimbo, I wish I had been dumb enough to scam an employer for a 10-yr, $70M+ contract. He was at least smart enough to pick a great agent, so I'll give him that.

I just said he is a goofy douche bag and a tool. He did scam A&M for 70 million but all I can say to that is, "at least it's NOT my money" paying him. Some rich oil tycoons fronted that doe.

Sorry, man, my real feelings about Jimbo weren't clear enough. I agree with you about him. My attempt at humor was weak.

I could see a kid wanting to play for Frost, personally. Everything I've seen or read about him says he's the real deal and a solid guy. Not that I want NU to challenge OSU, but Frost seems to be gifted at building relationships and getting the most out of his teams.

Frost will do well at Nebraska. I can see him winning the Big 10 west

That young man has the physical frame to be a stud DE @ OSU and the at the next level. Hopefully Coach Mick is grinding him in the weight room this summer... come a year from now, I can imagine him with 20 lbs of added muscle. If he is motivated to be great then the sky is the limit. He has the BEST D line coach in the world available to him and an endless amount of support personel at his disposal. I've got a great feeling about JJB... go get them young man!!!

I think you're on point there. I'm also quite impressed. The kids stronger than he looks. Holds his own and then some at the point of attack, gets off the block, bends well and has great ball recognition. #noice

If BC was recruiting him, he's clearly an intelligent young man who should be able to pick up the position move quickly. His apparent intellect was confirmed in my book when he picked the good guys. And if UFM believes he's a future DE, then that's all we really need to know.

Would buckfrombirth be the same as buckafterbirth?

HAHAHAHA!!! The way my family was, I could just as easily have used the name "Buckfromconception" or "Buckfrommyparents1972anniversary," but I figured that was kinda gross for this site.

Ahh that's some funny shtuff my friend. I'm sorry, I've got stem cells on the brain. That's a great way to be indoctrinated into The OSU as was I.

Looking forward to watching him develop over the next few years into the force that will bring the pain.
