Lots of Lil Debbie fans saying he is coming to Lincoln?
This lines up with what I was thinking. Eventually the teams that hit the portal hard every year will have to have trouble recruiting high schoolers. Who wants to go to a college out of high school when the coach will just recruit a transfer over top of you after a year?Are they just tossing the Freshman who played against Iowa aside? If I were him, I might be looking towards the transfer portal.
I generally like our approach to the Portal. It's not like Iowa would ever be in the running for the Justin Fields type transfers anyway. That being said, I have no idea why Iowa didn't bring in 1-2 offensive linemen after Kallenberger retired his playing career.This lines up with what I was thinking.

Good points.Looking thru some Transfer Portal commitments - 85% of these are P5 going to G5, FCS, some G5 to DII, NAIA. Obvious players who want to play and maybe realize what their level is now.
Iowa (ZVV, CJones) looking at guys the other way; under recruited, showed they can play, maturity, want to see if they can play at highest level. Not a lot of these, but if Iowa signs a transfer these will be the types.
Not some scrambling QB......
This was the most head-scratching part of the whole Scott Frost thing. You don't publicly set an ultimatum like that. What high level recruit is going to go there under the high likelihood that their entire coaching staff will be gone after a year? And how do you recruit future classes?OBTW, unless you scratch out 6 wins, your coach is getting fired.
Well put, but you forgot to mention the head coach that is willing to throw anyone and everyone under the bus to cover his ass. Then again if you were to ask any Nebby fan, I'm sure they didn't need him based on everyone else they their sites set on in the portal.Nebbie got themselves a good OC, but why would a top shelf QB transfer want to go there? They have no proven weapons, the OL is shit, you will essentially be starting from scratch in a new offensive system, and OBTW, unless you scratch out 6 wins, your coach is getting fired. They will land someone just because of the possibility of PT at a high profile team, but the odds of it all coming together next season for Nebbie are incredibly long.
