    I'd say we'd have a good shot if showed interest and offered from reading that.

    VA Tech

    I'm kind of enjoying the shock from Nub fans that he popped for the Hokies right after visiting Lincoln. :ROFLMAO:

    It's because he's not from Calibraska.

    Especially when all their 247 guys predicted him there and they wrote another overly Nebraska biased article after the visit.

    Every Nub publisher for every media outlet writes "so and so loved Lincoln and is favoring Big Red" after every single visit. They are then shocked about 30 times a cycle when guys commit elsewhere.

    Are we really doing this? Please don't tell me we've sunk this low.

    The kid has been recruited by Va Tech longer than anyone else. Not really surprised.

    That's fine. Just seems odd to laugh and give a middle finger to the Nubs for not landing a kid who we also offered and lives about 45 minutes from our campus.

    It's always appropriate to give cornholio the finger, for any reason.

    Wasn't a guy who was expected to commit to CU or necessarily a good fit for the system. Coach recruiting him for VA Tech was a college teammate of his dad's, so it always seemed like the best and most likely fit. Since I'd always figured it would go this way, the shock and awe reaction from Nub fans was funny to me.

    I hear ya. I suppose I just felt the sting of losing an in-state kid with good offers more than any husker schadenfreude . Dalton seemed high on the Buffs as well and that didn't get reciprocated by the staff for whatever reason.

    I wouldn't think VA Tech does much recruiting out this way. Oh well.

    Since he is a local kid who isn't going to be playing against us I hope he has a good career and gets a solid education. Had he gone to the fuskers the sentiment would not have been the same.
