Keeston Terry commits to NebraskaThe Nebraska coaching staff received a nice call Thursday evening as four star wide receiver Keeston Terry told them that he would like to be part of the Nebraska Football program and the University of Nebraska. With the verbal commitment of Terry, the Huskers now have three four star recruits according to Rivals.

Terry is from Blue Springs, Missouri and had offers from most of the Big12 North schools as well as Stanford and Wisconsin. He is currently 6’2 and weights in at 179. The Rivals 250 prospect is ranked as the number 35 wide receiver prospect in the country.
He had 50 catches for 900 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2008.

Welcome to the Big Red Family Mr. Terry!

Greg Paulus chooses SyracuseThe idea of playing in his hometown and in front of his family was enough for Greg Paulus to choose Syracuse over Nebraska. This morning the former Duke point guard held a teleconference through the Duke this morning where he announced his decision.

“I had a great visit there,” Paulus said. “Nebraska is a place where there is so much tradition. There are great people there. I had a great visit with coach (Bo) Pelini and spent a lot of time with their guys and coach (Shawn) Watson, their offensive coordinator.

“(But) my heart and my gut told me that Syracuse, I felt, was the best place for me.”

Paulus will have a better shot at playing time for the Orange as they are down to two quarterbacks right now. He will be working on his advanced degree in broadcast journalism at the university.

We wish Mr. Paulus the best of luck at Syracuse!

Paulus to Nebraska or SyracuseWe haven’t blogged a whole lot about the Greg Paulus situation here at Nebsports but tomorrow Mr. Paulus is expected to announce his decision. There is a 10 AM ET teleconference scheduled where Paulus is expected to pick between Syracuse or Nebraska.

I know some people are thinking why have Paulus here for one year since that is all the eligibility he has. However, the reason you take a kid like this is because it would probably allow both Latravis Washington and Cody Green to redshirt next year. I would rather have those guys on the roster for a extra year down the road and take Paulus to possibly be a backup then have to waste a year on Washington or Green.

In the end I don’t think we will even have to worry about it. I predict that Paulus will choose his hometown school and play for the Orange in the Carrier Dome.

Check back tomorrow and we will have a update up right when we hear what the decision is.

Sam Keller Sues NCAA and Ea SportsOk, first off I have to wonder what in the hell is Sam Keller thinking? Is this once former Arizona State and Nebraska quarterback that hard up for some attention or money? I don’t get the lawsuit that is being blogged about today where Keller has filed a lawsuit against the NCAA and EA Sports. It has many Husker fans as well as NCAA fans thinking WTF?!

Keller is suing the NCAA and EA Sports for “blatant and unlawful use of (NCAA) student likenesses in a number of EA Sports” college football games during his time with the Sun Devils and Cornhuskers without paying him for it. The “NCAA 08” game, for example, lists Keller at his approximate height and weight.

So just because EA Sports uses a player that has the same height/weight and number as someone they should be sued for it? Of course they are trying to make the game realistic as possible without adding names to the rosters that are shipped with the games. They can’t allow the names to be on the rosters due to NCAA rules. That doesn’t stop roster editors however from flocking to the Internet once the game is released to download new rosters that have every teams players named.

I wonder if Mr. Attention (Keller) would be bringing this up if he was in the NFL and also in the Madden game? I would imagine it would be cool to say “Yeah that is supposed to be in the game”… I guess not for Mr. Keller The whole Arena League and Bar tending in Arizona must not be working out to well huh Sam?

What’s your thoughts on this crazy lawsuit?
