Nebraska is 13th primarily because there are few big-time recruits in the area. Th only job ranking worse is Penn State Yeah it was by Teddy Greenstein...

I think they kind of have to say that. I hope it's true. If they do have the money lined up, I think the new coach would also want to bring his own assistants. Time will tell.

I still don't see it. First is the big problem with Leahy Mall. It's below street level. 2nd, it was not built to accommodate any type of boats.

With those two deficiencies, it can't possibly be a "San Antonio Riverwalk" or even what they have running throguh Bricktown in OKC.
