    You’re right. I didn’t read the whole thing just figured he was bailing since I think it had been talked about previously as he started getting more attention. Real weird.

    I would imagine that given his Ohio state visit isn't planned until after the early NSD that we asked him to shit or get off the pot and he decided to take the chance that his OSU offer is committable, which I doubt.

    Are dudes like Isaac Gifford really done? I think he walked on senior day but he's listed as a junior on the roster. I know covid years fucked everything all up. There's several like that that would be good contributors if they came back. John Bullock is another. So is Nick Henrich. Also Blaise Gunnerson is listed as a sophomore and walked on senior day.

    One thing I always laugh about is how our fans just give everything Nebraska does the benefit of the doubt. Talking to some people at work and NIL came up (unrelated to this recent decommit) and a couple guys were just like “oh we have to have one of the best out there…”

    The “were Nebraska” mindset just drives me nuts.

    I just haven’t taken the time to understand the NIL collective thing. Does Husker Athletics have any influence over the 1890 group? This whole thing seems dumb and inexplicable that we aren’t buying any player we want with the fan interest we have.

    In theory, we should have a pretty good one.

    Rhule said Hahn is done, going back to the farm to make corn and babies, GBR. And as of now Gunnerson is done just because of the physical toll

    Not trying to start anything. I legitimately didn’t realize his offenses have regularly been this bad.

    hope we’re ready to pony up some big bucks, a lot of quality QBs already in the portal.

    Other thing Husk fans always do is just complain about stuff even though we could easily do the same.

    Whether you believe a guy should get 1MM+ up front before “doing anything” or not…it’s just the reality of the situation. Just like recruiting you’re going to have good and bad. Saw someone saying transfer QBs never work, but the 3 assumed Heisman finalists are all portal guys lol

    some of my friends are getting torqued up about Will Howard. His worst games were against good teams. He would raise our floor but not our ceiling and I don’t think he raises our power rating at all compared to a healthy purdy. Could use him in the room but he ain’t worth a million imo.

    but I’m sure since he went to kstate our fans will assume he rides a combine to the practice facility and is a great “cultural” fit!

    If we had a healthy Purdy for the full season, we would be in a bowl game right now. I can’t speak to what Howard’s ceiling looks like, and I’m not going to die on this hill, but I’d be content with someone like him. We aren’t going to pull in someone looking to win a Heisman trophy but pay whatever the donors have. It’s not my money so I don’t mind a few blank checks.

    Howard is basically a maxed out Haarberg. Decent runner decent passer (as opposed to okay runner and horrible passer)

    Also lol at all the reporters on Twitter quoting Rhule about QBs costing 1.5-2 million with something like “there you go” after it. As if this is groundbreaking news. Maybe to 1890.

    It's awesome because in the same conversation he acknowledged "I can't dictate to them or be involved" but it's a strong wink-wink moment

    Maybe for a top 15 QB. I think most serviceable guys in the 20-40 range are probably 1.5
