    we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    Didn't know this. See that he has committed to SMU. Did we offer him before or after his commitment to SMU? Does he have any interest in us or did we just lose out on him? Hate to lose on in state kids.

    We didn't lose out on him. His offer was conditional.

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    I would venture to GUESS he was offered but when we got a bunch of linebackers to commit it was sort of withdrawn/offered grayshirt status. That's my guess. he seems destined for LB and we signed a bunch so we decided to go after other needs. Thats my guess


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    conditional? does this mean the staff offered but only on a greyshirt opportunity?

    Bingo. No inside info here, but a very reasonable assumption.

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    Wouldn't think a grey shirt would stop him. Maybe it was more that he's get a schollie unless certain other linebackers committed.

    I'm still surprised he didn't stay home and play for dad. Regardless, I would have loved to have had him here. His dad was an over achiever, and even if he was lacking anywhere physically, coach's kids, particularily on defense, have a better nose for the football because they figure things out quicker.

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    I always wonder how accurate the recruiting sites are, but according to Rivals, he had offers from ISU, Louisville, and SMU.

    Oddly, UNI was listed as one of his college choices, but not one of the schools offering.

    Maybe dad didn't want to burn a schollie. Dannen could give Farley a small raise to cover junior's tuition and it would all be legal.

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    Farley is pretty undersized IMO. I saw him run track a few times last season. Hes a decent player, dont get me wrong, but undersized.

    He was committed to play for UNI, but when you have a chance to play D-1, you take it.

    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Im going to approach all 12 games this way: Were going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, were going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I dont know, and youre right, I wont put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    Re: we offered Jake Farley out of Cedar Falls?

    He was silently committed to Louisville before Kragthorpe got fired. Once that happened, he came back to ISU wanting the scholarship, but ISU had already filled up. To say that that Nebraska win helped recruiting would be an understatement.
