Air Force veteran. Accountant. Weird transition, I know. Just like the move from Cleveland to Louisville was. Still a Buckeye for life!

While you are correct, I cannot upvote because you are using foul language You can use the alternatives TTUN, Meat Chicken, Xichigan, or even Bitchigan, but the m-word shall not be tolerated. Thank you for your understanding. (/s but only partially)

If you aren't ready to go to that extreme there are some programs that offer the military-esque experience as an after-school activity. Civil Air Patrol (CAP) for the Air Force, Young Marines which should be self explanatory, I know the Navy has one as well. You can think of them similar to JROTC but at least with CAP and Young Marines these outside programs are better funded and offer a wider range of activities.

I was in CAP from age 12-18 and it was a great thing for me to learn discipline and leadership. There were several kids with me that obviously needed the structure and about 50% ended up getting what they needed from CAP rather than having to go to the military school option.

On the other hand, a military school gives that same kind of structure and education as a main curriculum instead of an after school thing. When I was at the Air Force Academy I knew a couple guys in my squadron that came from various military high schools, let alone the whole cadet body, so while CAP was all I needed, maybe those guys needed more than just a once or twice a week meeting.

I know it has already been suggested, but there are police departments that offer a similar kind of program to what CAP has, and I had a high-school friend who was in one of those programs. He was a totally more respectful and more disciplined person after a year of that, and I am 99% sure it was cheaper than CAP was.

All kids are different, and as this young man's parent you have infinitely more to go off of than I, but fwiw I know that CAP, Young Marines and local PD / Sheriff's programs have all really helped me and people I knew growing up.

Best of luck to you!

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.

That could mean one of two things... either they have a better LT and want their returning guy to still start, or he's actually better at guard but had to start at tackle for reasons unknown to either of us.

Both options are terrifying.

It always shocks me how poorly rated Wisky's recruiting classes are, because you're right they turn 2 and 3 stars in to legit top tier talent along the trenches...

That o-line for Wisconsin is freaky good again.. I think that's a big reason Taylor is as good as he is. Taylor is talented, no doubt, but Dobbins would be throwing up 2000 yard seasons behind that line and that commitment to run every down they possibly can

100% agree. I went to the Air Force Academy and broke my ankle the second week. Broke the same one twice more and sprained it a total of 4 times. They couldn't keep me around after all that. 

Now, I have a good job, a great life, and I am much happier than I even was at USAFA. 

I'm just saying I can't fault someone for hunting down whatever their dreams are. I know for a fact I would be a different person if USAFA hadn't gone down the way it did. And I am infinitely grateful that I at least tried.

I vaguely remember thinking highly of Booker when I got to see him play. Hope he will be ready to go and hopefully he can play up to the Ohio State standard.

And I know Harbaugh signed a lifetime deal with ttun, but if they aren't pushing for a B1G title here in this year or next, I can't imagine him staying. Let's go undercover over at MGoBlog and start the #Bielema campaign!
