Let’s see if you can follow the logic here of Steven M. Sipple of the Lincoln Journal Star as he gives Bo Pelini a pass for missing out on a player that would have made Nebraska’s recruiting class significantly more impressive: Then came Wednesday’s letdown.

Well, Urban Meyer seems to know what he’s doing, no? A few short weeks after taking over the Buckeyes, he has the No. 3 recruiting class in the nation with one five-star (scooped up from Penn State) and a whopping 10 four-star recruits. Not too shabby. Especially at defensive end. Look at what he’s bringing […]
