Mine was better.
we are all well aware of Mooney. its Bo's school too.
Well, as I said, you're entitled to your opinion, including thinking that UK football is garbage. I would venture a guess, however, that if Nebraska began swaying some of UK's basketball recruits that Nebraska basketball would begin to get better.
I feel the same way about Kentucky football.
Youngstown is not "a few miles" down the road.
I just feel bad for Marcus. He has ZERO chance to win big at KY.
He is dropping into a football abyss.

the difference is one person can make a difference in basketball... Kentucky needs a hell of a lot more than a good Safety...
i love how McWilson says their "fans" ... pretty sure i tried watching two games of Kentuckys this year and saw over half empty stadium... even when we were 5-7 back in the callahan days we were selling out 90,000+
Maybe they planned on using him for basketball as well? They need some four star talent infused there as well. Mediocrity> UK
Kentucky basketball is pretty bad this year
First photo (from David Max of HuskerMax) is from three minutes left in a game where Nebraska was down to Mizzou 45-7 at the time.
Second photo is the pre-game of Vanderbilt @ Kentucky. [Won't Load: LINK ]
Third photo: Vanderbilt is up 40-0 in the 3Q on Kentucky.

Pelini and Co. should have sent him emails with pictures of all these "fans". Kid left to be with Marrow -- I guy he has known for less than a year. Good choice son, really good choice.
I'm actually enjoying this thread !
With all do respect to Nebraska's rich football heritage, the CFB landscape has changed so much that it's going to be tough for you to ever get back to national prominence. Not trying to flame, but just stating a fact.
As for Geography...OHIO is just down the road from KY was the point. As for Pelini from Mooney...had no clue, but surprised that none of you saw that as a factor.
Just for the record...capacity at Commonwealth is 68K to your 81K...record crowd was 71K to your 86K. We usually rank 25-30 in attendance.

His family knew Marrow long long long before his recruitment even started
I bet you we win five conference championships before you reach a nine win season
Gtfo. Ohio is up the road. See Marcus this is the fine PonzSec education you'll be receiving. You guys sure fit the stereotype.
and I think we're starting to get there with this recruiting class. Already some huge upgrades over what was previously committed. We're not gonna be on the level of Nebraska recruiting quite yet, but hopefully in a couple of years we'll get there.
I think Nebraska is gonna have a good team this year, and play for the conference championship. McWilson was sold on Stoops, Eliot and the vision of what we can become. Add in the fact that Marrow was there, and you've got a perfect storm.
Best of luck to you guys in the 13 season. With our schedule this year, you are right, we are gonna need some luck this year.
6 hours, 361 miles from youngstown to Lexington.
Very odd, never seen the likes of it, very strange folks in Kentucky... is there no one on their board to gloat with? Can't fill their stadium can't populate their forum either, I guess. Very strange.
...It ain't what they call you, it's what you answer to.

wow you guys really are disappointed...you'll be OK, guys.
UK has had pretty darn good attendance for a moribund program. The difference between those two photos is that Nebraska, at that time, was a top-25 team just beginning its slide to 5-7 on the season.
UK, at that time, had two consecutive losing seasons and was sitting at an embarrassing 1-8 going in. Although I didn't agree with it, many UK fans expressed that they refused to go to games in 2012 out of a (misguided, in my opinion) belief that refusing to show up for games would force the administration to focus on improving the program.
Correlation is not causation, but regardless, I'm pleased with the new coaching hire and optimistic, especially given our recruiting at the moment.
Not according to S. Callahan. The family relationship with Marrow was with the Love family -- Love's father went to high school with Marrow. Marrow didn't get to know McWilson until the spring game last year. Marrow was an uncle-like figure for Love, not McWilson, according to Callahan. Maybe he is wrong.
nice job with the edit, hope to see you guys on here next year when we have a full year to recruit and not just a couple of months. You stay classy Lincoln
