    The donald smith guy sounds pretty good if he has that many offers.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I heard a rumor that Standard wasn't gonna be eligable (academics)? Can anyone verify this?

    I though I heard it during a tailgate from someone. What difference does it make? If it's not true no no biggie. I hope it's not true.

    I am trying to figure out what has more truth. Internet rumor or drunken Tailgate rumor. Right now I am leaning toward tailgate rumor.

    I don't think anyone knows for sure. I believe the rumor may have sprung from the fact that he put up huge numbers but didn't have a ton of offers.

    That would make sense why he does not have more offers with his statistics. I hear on this board that the school he attends now is known for having strong academics. That might also make sense to why we have not pulled our offer from Nealy and remain in his top 4.

    I have heard good things about Miller...sounds like an under the radar type that could really pan out. Good frame, strong and great work ethic. Hawk fans that know Brooklyn area football are really wishing the Hawks would offer...full ride or gray shirt.

    1. One should never, ever, ever believe or even somewhat think about believing a rumor overheard at a tailgate event.

    2. There were issues. Here's my thinking: He goes to a pretty darn good school right now. My feeling is they have or will sort this out and he will be here.


    It's all snark from here on out

    We haven't pulled Nealy's offer because he is really good. He's like Shontrelle with more offers.

    When Standard committed he did it like a month after he originally announced he was. He said he was gonna pick between Nebraska and Iowa State on one day, he never announced that day, and waited another month to decide even though we were basically his only offer left. Something tells me we got it figured out that month if he would qualify or not.
