‘Huskers an option for ex-UW WR Stringfellow

1 Comment

Nearly a week after announcing his transfer from Washington, one of the most talented players to enter the transfer pool this offseason has at least one option at the table.

In an interview with, Damore’ea Stringfellow acknowledged to the website that Nebraska is one of the schools to which he’s considering a transfer. The Cornhuskers were the only school specifically mentioned by the wide receiver as potential transfer destinations.

Nebraska is definitely a team I’m considering,” Stringfellow told the site. “I really liked Nebraska’s coaching staff and the family environment when they recruited me in high school.

“Right now I have a plan, but it’s not 100 percent. I’m just trying to finish off this last quarter here and then I’ll be focusing on where I’m going. As of right now I’m just focusing on finishing school out.”

Miles, along with former teammate and quarterback Cyler Miles, were allegedly involved in a pair of assaults this past February. Miles, who was reinstated to the team earlier this month, was not charged while Stringfellow was charged with two counts of misdemeanor assault in the fourth degree and one count of malicious mischief in early April.

Stringfellow’s transfer from the Huskies was announced last Wednesday, the same day Miles was reinstated.

Should the receiver land in Lincoln, it would give NU’s coaching staff a significant and talented weapon in 2015.

In 2013 as a true freshman, Stringfellow caught 20 passes for 259 yards. Stringfellow, a four-star member of UW’s 2013 recruiting class who was rated as the No. 10 receiver in the country, was projected starter as a Huskies heading into spring practice.

Should the California native transfer to Nebraska or any other FBS program, he would have to sit out the 2014 season but would maintain three years of eligibility beginning in 2015.

SEC shut out of AP top five for first time in half a decade

The polls are meaningless. Especially any poll that isn’t the College Football Playoff top 25 and even then, as the TCU learned late last season, even the penultimate ranking is as meaningless as the paper they’re metaphorically written on.

Still, they’re catnip to college football fans and observers. Place them in front of us and we can’t help but gnaw on them.

And with that said, a bit of milestone was reached in Sunday’s Associated Press Top 25, as the SEC was completely shut out of the top five.

That group breaks down as follows:

  1. Ohio State
  2. TCU
  3. Baylor
  4. Michigan State
  5. Utah

An SEC free top five hasn’t happened in nearly five full years; October 10, 2010 was the last time such a thing occurred. Oddly enough, two of the same five culprits occupied that ranking as well:

  1. Ohio State
  2. Oregon
  3. Boise State
  4. TCU
  5. Nebraska

Underscoring the lesson of the first paragraph, eventual national champion Auburn checked in at No. 6. Those Tigers moved up a spot the following week and never looked back.

None of this means anything at all, until it does. But that doesn’t mean we can’t have some fun along the way.
