Friday Flakes: Nebraska Isn’t the Only School Having Trouble Holding Onto Receivers

Maybe it’s in the water?

I stumbled upon a little nugget of information on Twitter. Knowing that Nebraska now has no scholarship receivers on their roster from the 2017, 2018 or 2019 recruiting classes it makes the following piece of information somewhat interesting.

So Notre Dame has one remaining receiver from the 2019 and 2020 recruiting classes and that one receiver is out of Omaha. Maybe there’s something in the water at Nebraska that affects wide receiver rooms and Notre Dame has been infected?

Seems like a perfect ridiculous topic for Friday Flakes.

Not a surprise that Nebraska did not make this list.

On the plywood pitching mound was a container of pine tar; aerosol cans of BullFrog sunscreen and Cramer Firm Grip; and in a shallow, circular container of something called Spider Tack, a super-sticky paste developed to help grip Atlas Stones in strongman competitions. There was also a bag of rosin, a ubiquitous sight on major-league mounds.
