Legendary coach and former athletic director Tom Osborne was one of the people Moos knew he <a href="https://nebraska.rivals.com/news/three-takeaways-from-the-bill-moos-press-conference" target="_blank" rel="noopener">wanted to lean on</a> in his new job, and for nearly an hour before his introductory press conference, Moos did just that.</p> <p>Osborne was at home Wednesday evening, talking about his upcoming plans for the end of the week. He&#8217;s traveling around the western part of the state, so he&#8217;s busy. He knows the same is true of Moos, whose official start date as Nebraska&#8217;s athletic director is Monday, Oct. 23.</p> <p>Osborne knows Moos will be busy, too. However, if Moos calls, Osborne will answer.</p> <p>&#8220;We’re acquainted and I think we have a good relationship,&#8221; Osborne told Land of 10. &#8220;[But him reaching out] remains to be seen. He’s busy. He’s not a guy that is a fledgling AD. He obviously knows what he is doing. I’m sure he has his ideas of how to proceed and if he wants input from me, I’ll be more than happy to sit down with him and give him any information that I have.”</p> <p>Osborne and Moos were familiar with one another prior to the hire. The two met in 2011 when Washington State officials visited Lincoln as a part of a facilities study. Osborne was Nebraska&#8217;s athletic director at the time.</p> <p>After meeting again on Sunday in Chancellor Ronnie Green&#8217;s office, Osborne now has an even better grasp of what makes Moos tick. One of the areas about which Osborne was most worried before the new AD was hired was his understanding of an area that is not heavily populated.</p> <p>Moos, who is coming to Lincoln, Neb., from Pullman, Wash., understands the rural aspects of Nebraska life. Osborne also sees a man who understands the importance and value of the Huskers fan base.</p> <p>&#8220;When you’re out in eastern Washington, you’re certainly isolated from large population bases,&#8221; Osborne said. &#8220;I think he understands that, and I think he also understands that it’s important to be accessible to people. The people of Nebraska, in a sense, have a feeling of ownership of the athletic program at the university and certainly the football program. They want to see and hear from you, and I think he understands that.”</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">Honor the past, live the present, create the future. </p> <p>Welcome to Nebraska Bill Moos!</p> <p><img src="https://s.w.org/images/core/emoji/2.3/72x72/1f534.png" alt=" Former Nebraska S Nate Gerry promoted to Eagles’ active roster https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/former-nebraska-nate-gerry-promoted-eagles Land of 10 urn:uuid:b3478c5a-5ce8-0620-5af9-2816fcb32963 Thu, 19 Oct 2017 11:48:01 -0500 <img width="400" height="210" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/cmgverticals/image/upload/c_crop,g_north_west,h_1894,w_3600,x_0,y_348/f_auto,q_auto/h_210,w_400/v1508431498/GettyImages-458811172_xvcvz2.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="nate gerry-nebraska-eagles-active roster-practice squad" style="display: block; margin-bottom: 5px; clear:both;" /><p>It took a little longer than expected, but Nate Gerry has officially made the jump from Nebraska football to an NFL active roster.

He typically meets with the media Monday mornings at his weekly news conference, and then again post-practice on Thursday. This week is a little different though, which was to be expected.</p> <p>Wednesday was Nebraska&#8217;s second bye-week practice, which lasted for approximately an hour and 30 minutes. The team was in full pads, splitting time between the Hawks Championship Center and the practice fields outside.</p> <p>Following Nebraska&#8217;s 56-14 loss to Ohio State, Riley shared what he&#8217;d expect from the bye week. He called it a &#8220;balance of practice and rest,&#8221; which is what the Huskers coaches have been trying to do all week.</p> <p>On Wednesday, that included some team work, Purdue preparation, and just general practice. Riley called it &#8220;a mixed bag,&#8221; which sounds about right. Even the coaches have used the extra time to work on game plans and practice plans. They&#8217;ll also have a group <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/mike-riley-said-nebraskas-practice-wednesday" target="_blank" rel="noopener">hitting the road</a> on Thursday to recruit, while others will stay back and hold practice.</p> <p>The biggest key for a bye week is allowing players to rest and recover. With many players <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-mike-riley-tre-bryant-injury" target="_blank" rel="noopener">close to returning from injuries</a>, it&#8217;s the perfect time to allow extra opportunities to rest. After a rough stretch of back-to-back games against Wisconsin and Ohio State, it&#8217;s a rest Nebraska desperately needed, too.</p> <p>Offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf planned to start the week a little lighter for the offense to take advantage of that time to recover. He used it to review and teach to the things the offense needs to improve on. He expected practice to get heavier in game plan by the end of the week.</p> <p>The key in a successful bye week is balancing game prep and practice while also resting, of course.</p> <p>“We also don’t want to over do it,&#8221; Riley said on Saturday. &#8220;This is their one chance to have a bye and so we’ll probably have three days of practice, five days of meetings and a couple more days of lifting to just kind of stay in tune a bit.”</p> <p>There&#8217;s no game looming on Saturday, but there&#8217;s plenty for Nebraska to still work on. That&#8217;s why the Huskers are spending the week finding a balance between rest, recovery and preparation for Purdue.</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-spending-bye-week">On the Beat: How Nebraska is spending its bye week</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com">Land of 10</a>.</p> Nebraska fans shouldn’t worry about Mike Riley’s sideline demeanor; key recruit enjoys visit https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-fans-mike-riley-recruiting-update Land of 10 urn:uuid:71436772-b44c-668e-5b21-e17ded97801d Thu, 19 Oct 2017 05:00:51 -0500 <img width="400" height="211" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/cmgverticals/image/upload/c_crop,g_north_west,h_2097,w_3978,x_0,y_202/g_south,l_overlays:nebraska-Big_Red_Rising,w_3978/f_auto,q_auto/h_211,w_400/v1505756273/GettyImages-619120596_ukfkmo.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="Mike Riley-Nebraska football" style="display: block; margin-bottom: 5px; clear:both;" /><p>Nebraska football is the No. 1 topic in Big Red Rising every day — but we cover news, notes and analysis from across Huskers sports.

When UCLA tore through college basketball, John Wooden, stoic and wizardly, was a picture of calm in the eye of the storm.</p> <p>The talk shows weren’t raging about a lack of passion on the sideline. Because they won. A lot.</p> <p>When Mike Riley keeps a straight face at Memorial Stadium <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraskas-loss-ohio-state-may-straw-finally-breaks-coach-mike-rileys-back">while he’s being de-pantsed by Ohio State</a> on national television, the postgame callers want to attach jumper cables to the man’s extremities and start revving the engine.</p> <p>“Fans, they find that important, but most important is that they want to see that in the players,” explains Dr. Marty Martinez, sports psychology coordinator at Iowa State and a Nebraska alum. “And if they don’t see that, they’ll go, ‘Why is that?’ And if the coach is not rah-rah, they’ll blame that.</p> <p>“[Bo] Pelini was the rah-rah guy, but that’s not what they needed in that way. And Osborne wasn’t the rah-rah guy. He was beautiful, they loved him. Of course, he was an offensive genius. That helped.”</p> <p>Scoreboards speak louder than words.</p> <p>Louder than actions, too.</p> <h2>&#8216;The authentic and genuine type coaches last longer&#8217;</h2> <p>“In the case of Nebraska fans — extremely loyal and knowledgeable — I feel they are showing their frustration,” offers Tim Hamel, a physical education lecturer and sports psychologist in Fresno State’s department of kinesiology. “Look at how the great Tom Osborne displayed his emotion during a football game. He was a rock. Then look at former coach Bo Pelini — he seemed fired up all the time.</p> <p>“Research has demonstrated that the rah-rah, super motivational head coach works in the short term — 1-to-2 seasons, then the athlete begins to get very tired of being &#8216;yelled&#8217; at. Athletes know when a coach is true or fake. The authentic and genuine type coaches last longer.”</p> <p>And on this, Martinez and Hamel agree: A head coach’s sideline energy and/or passion — or lack thereof — doesn’t necessarily affect the energy and/or passion of players in the moment. Or a team’s success.</p> <blockquote><p><em><strong>&#8216;That high correlation with success with athletes is if the athletes believe that the coach believes in them.&#8217;</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>— Dr. Marty Martinez, sports psychology coordinator at Iowa State and a Nebraska alum</strong></em></p></blockquote> <p>“With players, really, the greatest kind of energy players get from anybody — first, it’s from their teammates,” Martinez explains. “Second, it’s their teammates. And third, their position coaches, the assistant coaches.</p> <p>“All great coaches have great assistant coaches that energize the guys. In my many, many years of doing this, the correlation of a rah-rah head coach has very little to do with a team that’s going to be successful. But if they have an assistant coach like that, <em>that </em>then correlates with player energy and likely success.”</p> <p>Martinez did his master&#8217;s and Ph.D. work in Lincoln a few years back, when the Cornhuskers swung the biggest stick in the old Big Eight. During his undergraduate days at UCLA, Martinez watched the legendary Wooden sit on the bench with his arms folded, a game program in his hand, while assistants such as Denny Crum would be the ones going bananas.</p> <p>While he thinks complaints about Riley’s perceived “lack of passion” are overblown, Martinez says that Nebraska faithful who questioned defensive coordinator Bob Diaco’s preference for working a game from the press box instead of the sideline may have a point.</p> <p>“When I’m roaming the sidelines, those coaches come right into the huddle, right into the bench when the offense is on the bench, and they’re man-on-man, face-to-face,” the sports psychologist continues. “[The Huskers] are missing that.</p> <p>“Now, of course, you talk to coaches that are roaming the sidelines, they know they’re missing stuff because they’re not up top. And there again, if you’ve got an assistant that you trust — the defensive coordinator has his line and linebackers and secondary coaches — they’re going to be doing that [on the field]. But they pick on the face. They pick on the face with the headset. They’ve got to find some reason why the Blackshirts aren’t doing it.”</p> <h2>&#8216;When players get over-aroused, the potential for mistakes increases&#8217;</h2> <p>It’s human nature: When the party’s rolling, the drinks are flowing and the kielbasas melt in your mouth, nobody cares how the sausage gets made. But when the Big Red are on the wrong side of a 42-point defeat, when J.T. Barrett is putting up Xbox numbers in your backyard, when Wisconsin won’t give the ball back, <em>every</em> wrinkle in the program, <em>every </em>part of the process, is fair game.</p> <p>“A college football game, especially in October, has enough distractions,” Hamel says. “A coach has to limit the game down to things the entire coaching staff can control. Hence it is extremely vital that the head coach has control of his emotions as the game plays out.</p> <p>“Far too often the emotional behaviors of the head coach — or staff on the field — get out of control, which gets the players on the field over-aroused. When players get over-aroused, the potential for mental mistakes to happen increases. Successful coaches stay &#8216;even-keeled&#8217; throughout the game. They need to be focused on the next play. They understand how important it is to be focused in the moment.”</p> <p>They understand the fishbowl, how a camera is recording their every breath for posterity, how social media has given everyone the microphone, a color analyst unchained. They understand that their players can spot a phony from 50 yards out.</p> <p>“I think Riley is certainly a smart guy,” Martinez says. “He’s good with people. Again, that high correlation with success with athletes is if the athletes believe that the coach believes in <em>them</em>.</p> <p>“Wooden would never rah-rah, he didn’t get guys up. He said, ‘If I get them up, they’re going to come down.’ The success does not correlate to the rah-rah. You like it, and like to see it, [but] it doesn’t <em>mean</em> anything.”</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-fans-mike-riley-sideline-demeanor-experts-say">Nebraska fans shouldn&#8217;t care about Mike Riley&#8217;s sideline demeanor, experts say</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com">Land of 10</a>.</p> Huskers Head to UNLV Collegiate Showdown http://www.huskers.com//ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=100&ATCLID=211673668 Nebraska Headline News urn:uuid:ebb7c3c3-842b-1a28-7083-b46352ac0965 Wed, 18 Oct 2017 15:00:00 -0500 The Nebraska women's golf team will wrap up the fall season at the UNLV Collegiate Showdown in Boulder City, Nev. on Oct. 22-24.

Does it make it easier to be critical of older talent since they weren&#39;t as involved?</p> <p>&mdash; Huskerhonold (@CoryHonold) <a href="https://twitter.com/CoryHonold/status/920335179612348416?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 17, 2017</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>This is a great question, because it&#8217;s something I&#8217;ve thought about a little bit recently. As social media has grown, so have the social media recruiters surrounding every program. It&#8217;s not something unique to just Nebraska, though. It&#8217;s also not something specific to coach Mike Riley.</p> <p>While Twitter has grown exponentially in the last several years, it was around for Bo Pelini&#8217;s tenure at Nebraska, too. I remember seeing fans tweet at recruits then, but the impact and reach were obviously smaller. That&#8217;s grown over the last few years, which also coincides with Riley&#8217;s time at the helm.</p> <p>To answer your question, I suppose some fans could feel less invested in the older players because they weren&#8217;t as active in their recruitment. These days, you have <a href="https://www.landof10.com/collection/nebraska-recruiting-brendan-radley-hiles-updates-news" target="_blank" rel="noopener">notebooks like Brendan Radley-Hiles&#8217;</a> that really connect you with the athlete. That makes people feel as if they really know the players before they ever sign on the dotted line.</p> <p>However, in Nebraska&#8217;s case, I think some of the criticism for the older players is a direct result of the talent we&#8217;re seeing from the younger players. In fact, I recently <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-bill-moos-future-silver-lining-key-young-players" target="_blank" rel="noopener">ran down a list of the younger players</a> and their contributions so far. It&#8217;s a pretty impressive list. The talent is still a little raw and disorganized, but the potential is there.</p> <p>In my opinion, that&#8217;s where more of your criticism is coming from. But I agree that it&#8217;s easier to feel invested when you&#8217;ve spent time &#8220;getting to know&#8221; a kid from the time he was in high school to the day he steps on the field, which is easier than ever now thanks to social media.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">As we get closer to the early signing period, are there any verbal commits that are in doubt after team&#39;s recent performance?</p> <p>&mdash; Eric (@FloridaJeep) <a href="https://twitter.com/FloridaJeep/status/920328705733513217?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 17, 2017</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>I think the one worrying most Nebraska fans right now is wide receiver <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Joshua-Moore-84998" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Joshua Moore</a>.

A couple of old war horses. A pair of Pac-12 veterans. Smiles all around. Mike Riley and Bill Moos, Butch and Sundance.</p> <p>On the other hand …</p> <p>“It’s not good for Riley,” Jim Walden, the former Washington State football coach/radio analyst and Nebraska Cornhuskers assistant, told Land of 10 this week. “Absolutely not. Nothing’s good for Riley.</p> <p>&#8220;His team got beat 56-14 [by Ohio State]. They were [crushed] at home for another ballgame … In my opinion, nothing Bill Moos is going to do is going to make it nice for Riley.”</p> <p>Walden, 79, watched from the Pacific Northwest last Saturday night as the Buckeyes handed Nebraska its worst home loss in a conference tilt since 1949. The coach-turned-radio personality has a foot in both Cornhuskers and Cougars camps: Walden was a graduate assistant in Lincoln under Bob Devaney in 1969 and 1970 and an assistant under Devaney in 1971 and 1972. He joined the Washington State staff as an assistant 1977 and coached Wazzu from 1978 to 1986.</p> <p>“Scott Frost is going to have to make a decision. It’ll be him or Chip Kelly,” Walden continued. “I’m sorry to be the voice of doom for Mike Riley, which I hate, because I happen to think the world of him.”</p> <p>And he’s been there, several times over. But 3-4 is 3-4. And 11-10 — Riley’s record in the Big Ten — is 11-10.</p> <p>When Huskers fans are leaving at halftime, as chunks did on Saturday, Big Red fans have already voted with their feet. And hearts.</p> <p>“Make no bones about it,” Walden said. “[When] the new A.D. gets the job, one of the requirements of the new job is, ‘When you come here, will you fire the coach?’ And the answer better be, ‘Yes,’ or he’s not going there.”</p> <p>Riley coached at Oregon State when his new boss was the athletic director at Oregon (1995 to 2007) and Washington State (2010-17). There are mutual friends and mutual respect. But Walden, who’s known Moos for more than three decades, says the Huskers’ newest athletic director won’t shy away from making tough decisions — cold decisions — when the bottom line is at stake.</p> <blockquote><p><em><strong>&#8216;Scott Frost is going to have to make a decision. It’ll be him or Chip Kelly &#8230; I’m sorry to be the voice of doom for Mike Riley, which I hate, because I happen to think the world of him.&#8217;</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>— Former Nebraska assistant coach and Washington State football coach Jim Walden on the future of Cornhuskers football</strong></em></p></blockquote> <p>“They’ll expect a guy that’s full of back-patting,” said Walden, who was removed from Cougars football broadcasts by Moos in May 2012 after 11 seasons in the booth. “He’s got a good line of gab. He’s personable … he’s a P.R. guy.</p> <p>“He’s not Tom Osborne, by any stretch of the imagination. There are parts of him that are more Bob Devaney-ish. But nothing about him is Tom Osborne, period.</p> <p>“Overall, you’ve got to give him credit. It’s hard to separate the A.D. at Oregon versus the Nike guy [Phil Knight]. I’ll give him credit for everything he got done in Oregon, but it’s kind of hard to separate the two. And he came [to Washington State] and he did some nice things. Jim Sterk, the former athletic director, had already started the plans — he doesn’t get enough credit. But Bill Moos needs to get credit for finishing the job. Albeit that we’re<a href="https://www.seattletimes.com/sports/wsu-cougars/wsu-athletic-department-figures-to-lose-more-than-10-million-again-but-plan-in-place-to-get-solvent/"> 11 million in debt.</a>”</p> <p>There <em>is</em> that. And there’s also an <a href="http://www.espn.com/espn/now?nowId=21-40005497-4">ESPN report</a> at the start of the week intimating feelings of “growing friction” between Moos and new Wazzu president Kirk Schultz, and that the two weren’t always on the same page, let alone the same script.</p> <p>“I do feel bad [for Huskers fans],” Walden said. “When Bo [Pelini] was doing some good things, I couldn’t understand why he was always so sensitive about the crowd.</p> <p>“But it does bother me, because some of the best years of my life [were in Lincoln]. I thought, ‘Hell, winning’s easy.’ I really did, because when Warren Powers, Monte Kiffin, me, you look at all of us that were there — it’s an adjustment, when you win as many games as we won. Then you find out it&#8217;s harder than you think when you’re with someone else.”</p> <blockquote><p><em><strong>&#8216;Mike Riley is in the exact same situation I was in at Iowa State in 1994. And I would give him the same advice I gave myself: &#8220;These people deserve better.&#8221; &#8216;</strong></em></p> <p><em><strong>— Former Nebraska assistant coach and Washington State coach Jim Walden</strong></em></p></blockquote> <p>Walden found that out the hard way as the coach at Iowa State, where he was matched up against the Huskers annually from 1987 to 1994, losing seven of eight meetings with his old pal Osborne.</p> <p>“Mike Riley is in the exact same situation I was in at Iowa State in 1994,” said Walden, who hosts a weekly radio talk show on KGA-AM (1510) in Spokane, Wash. “And I would give him the same advice I gave myself: ‘These people deserve better.’</p> <p>“And there is one difference in this whole thing — I’d been there eight years, he’s been there, what, three? In some ways, he hasn’t been given enough time. But again, we’re talking about <em>Nebraska</em>.</p> <p>“When they’ve turned on you and start leaving the stadium and they start doing things that traditionally they’ve ever done … [You tell Nebraska] ‘I’m sorry, but if we can work out an agreement, I’ll step away four weeks from now.’ …</p> <p>“And that’s what I can tell him. Because it’s a foregone conclusion. They didn’t fire the A.D. at Nebraska so the coach could stay on. They probably fired him because he wouldn’t fire Riley. It’s not rocket science.”</p> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-assistant-bill-moos-hire-not-good-for-mike-riley">Former Nebraska assistant Jim Walden says Bill Moos hire &#8216;not good&#8217; for Mike Riley</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://www.landof10.com">Land of 10</a>.</p> Nebraska’s Mike Riley, injured RB Tre Bryant discussing medical redshirt possibility https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-football-mike-riley-tre-bryant-injury Land of 10 urn:uuid:ec859727-488d-79c8-ae36-f6561e1c26ec Tue, 17 Oct 2017 13:20:36 -0500 <img width="400" height="211" src="https://res.cloudinary.com/cmgverticals/image/upload/c_crop,g_north_west,h_1891,w_3592,x_0,y_67/f_auto,q_auto/h_211,w_400/v1508264370/GettyImages-842069394_lvk6um.jpg" class="attachment-medium size-medium wp-post-image" alt="nebraska-football-mike riley-injuries" style="display: block; margin-bottom: 5px; clear:both;" /><p>Nebraska RB Tre Bryant is still battling a knee injury.

Let&#8217;s run down the list:</p> <h2><strong>Offense</strong></h2> <h3><strong>WR JD Spielman</strong></h3> <p>If there were an MVP of the young players, it would go to wide receiver JD Spielman. Nearly every person who responded on Twitter mentioned Spielman.</p> <p>The redshirt freshman wide receiver has 31 receptions for 475 yards and 2 touchdowns on the season.

In fact, many members of Nebraska&#8217;s media noticed Lightbourn often practicing on his own in Memorial Stadium last season and during the offseason.</p> <blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-width="550"> <p lang="en" dir="ltr">Caleb Lightbourn getting in some extra work in an empty Memorial Stadium. <a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Huskers?src=hash&amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Huskers</a> <a href="https://t.co/rbvofScCK0">pic.twitter.com/rbvofScCK0</a></p> <p>&mdash; Kevin Thomas (@KevinThomasLNK) <a href="https://twitter.com/KevinThomasLNK/status/788067749142507520?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">October 17, 2016</a></p></blockquote> <p><script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script></p> <p>Needless to say, Lightbourn has improved and then some. A quick comparison of his 2016 statistics to his current 2017 statistics highlights the growth:</p> <table style="height: 94px;" width="691"> <tbody> <tr> <td><strong>Season</strong></td> <td><strong>Punts</strong></td> <td><strong>Average</strong></td> <td><strong>Long</strong></td> <td><strong>Yards</strong></td> </tr> <tr> <td>2017</td> <td>34</td> <td>43.2</td> <td>69</td> <td>1,468</td> </tr> <tr> <td>2016</td> <td>65</td> <td>39.7</td> <td>58</td> <td>2,578</td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p>Not only has Lightbourn improved his numbers, but his accuracy is significantly better. Considering he&#8217;s only a sophomore, there&#8217;s likely to be more improvement down the road.</p> <h2><strong>Others mentioned</strong></h2> <ul> <li><strong>WR Tyjon Lindsey:</strong> That block against Wisconsin that helped Stanley Morgan Jr. score on an 80-yard pass play?

Here is the ninth installment, as told to beat writer Erin Sorensen.</em></p> <p>I just got back to IMG after spending some time at home. We just had a bye week, so I took the opportunity to head west and see my family. I flew to Las Vegas, but then drove to Los Angeles with my mom and grandma.</p> <p>While I was home, I got to go to my old high school game, see some of my old classmates and hang out with them. My sister also had her gender reveal and I found out that I&#8217;m having a little niece. I&#8217;m very excited for that. You could say that was the highlight of my trip.</p> <p>Speaking of my sister, she lives on the water so I got to wake up feeling like a king almost. I stayed with her and it was great.</p> <p>I&#8217;m also a part of this thing with one of <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Darnay-Holmes-55091" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Darnay Holmes</a>&#8216; cousins, <a href="https://twitter.com/AkeemGX" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Akeem GonzaleX</a>. He has a foundation about athletics and tattoos, called Athletic Tatts. His project highlights all of these athletes and tells their stories behind their tattoos.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <blockquote class="instagram-media" style="background: #FFF; border: 0; border-radius: 3px; box-shadow: 0 0 1px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.5),0 1px 10px 0 rgba(0,0,0,0.15); margin: 1px; max-width: 658px; padding: 0; width: calc(100% - 2px);" data-instgrm-version="7" data-instgrm-captioned=""> <div style="padding: 8px;"> <div style="background: #F8F8F8; line-height: 0; margin-top: 40px; padding: 33.33333333333333% 0; text-align: center; width: 100%;"></div> <p style="margin: 8px 0 0 0; padding: 0 4px;"><a style="color: #000; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; font-style: normal; font-weight: normal; line-height: 17px; text-decoration: none; word-wrap: break-word;" href="https://www.instagram.com/p/BaSyUzXgWwp/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">I’ll be here, just swangin&#8230;</a></p> <p style="color: #c9c8cd; font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px; margin-bottom: 0; margin-top: 8px; overflow: hidden; padding: 8px 0 7px; text-align: center; text-overflow: ellipsis; white-space: nowrap;">A post shared by .44 (@bookie_44) on <time style="font-family: Arial,sans-serif; font-size: 14px; line-height: 17px;" datetime="2017-10-16T03:18:34+00:00">Oct 15, 2017 at 8:18pm PDT</time></p> </div> </blockquote> <p>So many people are often afraid to ask about my tattoos, but some are very deep and personable that no one really knows or understands. I ended up doing a photo shoot while home with him because we wanted to take advantage of being on the beach. I shared one photo on Instagram already, but I may hold on to the others for now.</p> <p>Now that I&#8217;m back in Florida, I&#8217;m looking forward to getting back to the grind tomorrow with my guys. However, I did appreciate the time I had off over the last week.</p> <p>For an athlete, a bye week is a time to recover and to recuperate. It&#8217;s like a cheat week because you get to double-up on film study for your next opponent. You can also rest your body up to give it your all again like it&#8217;s the first game of the season.</p> <p>Being able to have a bye week in the middle of a tough season and a tough schedule like this is great. It also messes up your schedule just a little bit. I was able to get a little training in while I was home, though. I worked out with my old trainers, but it still knocks you off a little bit because you&#8217;re not with your guys for a week. But when it comes to IMG though, we get right back to it.</p> <p>And I am getting right back into it. Aside from my IMG schedule, I&#8217;m still planning out all of my final official visits. As of now, I&#8217;m planning to visit Texas and Oklahoma. The plan is to visit Texas this weekend for their matchup with Oklahoma State, and then Oklahoma next weekend for their matchup with Texas Tech.</p> <p>Funny enough, I actually scheduled my Oklahoma visit before talking to my roommate <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/TJ-Pledger-81035" target="_blank" rel="noopener">T.J. Pledger</a> who is committed to the Sooners. It worked out though, because he was already planning to visit that weekend so I&#8217;ll get to go with him.</p> <p>I&#8217;ve always planned on taking all 5 of my official visits, so this is just the next step in that. I don&#8217;t want people to have a negative image of me doing that, but you also have to do what is right with you. You have to take the good with the bad, and it can only affect you and overwhelm you if you allow it to.</p> <p>As for me, I&#8217;m just enjoying it all as it comes.</p> <p><em>Miss a week of Bookie’s senior season diary?

We went pretty in-depth <a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/nebraska-recruiting-talanoa-hufanga-visits-this-weekend-spencer-petras-jake-dukart-oregon-state-commits">on his recruitment process in our Friday notebook</a>. Hufanga still has two more official visits on the docket (Michigan and USC), plus another unofficial visit to Oregon. He&#8217;s not expected to commit until the end of December, so don&#8217;t hold your breath just yet.</p> <p>But with an eye toward the future, defensive end/outside linebacker Marcus Hicks and quarterback Max Duggan — both 2019 prospects — were in town for unofficial visits. From Wichita, Kan., Hicks is within the Cornhuskers&#8217; coveted 500-mile radius in the Midwest. As for Duggan, Council Bluffs, Iowa, it&#8217;s widely expected that Iowa and Nebraska will be the front-runners in his recruitment.</p> <p><a href="https://www.landof10.com/nebraska/max-imum-exposure-qb-max-duggan-hopes-to-visit-nebraska-again?utm_campaign=SF_Landof10_Neb&amp;utm_source=Twitter&amp;utm_medium=Social">Visiting Nebraska multiple times</a> has clearly been a priority for Duggan throughout his recruitment. He made an unofficial visit in June and returned one week later to attend a camp. Two days later, Iowa hosted him for an unofficial visit. Minnesota is also vying for the Midwest hot commodity, and Duggan will make an unofficial visit there this weekend. A thumb injury caused a hiccup in Duggan&#8217;s junior season, but that won&#8217;t slow down his recruitment. As of now, he owns 13 offers — primarily from Big Ten schools though Ole Miss and North Carolina have also extended offers.</p> <p>The 6-foot-2, 185-pound Duggan is a 4-star prospect and the eighth-ranked dual-threat quarterback in the 2019 class, <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Max-Duggan-87561">according to the 247Sports composite</a>. With no quarterback committed for the 2018 class presently, Duggan is considered a high-priority recruit.</p> <p>Hicks is currently embarking on a string of unofficial visits throughout his junior year. He took an unofficial to Oklahoma the week before Nebraska. Next week, he will be at Arkansas for an unofficial visit when the Razorbacks play Auburn. <a href="https://247sports.com/Player/Marcus-Hicks-46039781">Per 247Sports</a>, Hicks owns a 4-star ranking and is the No. 1 recruit in Kansas for the 2019 cycle. Defensive line coach John Parrella is leading the charge in his recruitment for Nebraska.</p> <p>Through seven games this season, Hicks has 7 sacks, 19 solo tackles (44 total) and 13 tackles for loss.</p> <h2>More Nebraska-Iowa recruiting competition</h2> <p>Iowa and Nebraska haven&#8217;t limited their 2019 recruiting competition to Duggan. The Hawkeyes on Saturday offered tight end and Nebraska target Chris Hickman. Hickman, a 3-star tight end from Burke High School (Omaha, Neb.) has held an offer from Nebraska since Sept. 23, during his unofficial visit to campus.</p> <p>The Iowa offered marked the fifth offer for Hickman.
