Kids Are Named The Darnedest Things: The Best Names In College Football Recruiting.

New, 3 comments

One of the lesser known joys of following college football recruiting is the cognitive dissonance which results when you find yourself watching film of a high school football player with a truly extraordinary name. Oh sure, we can't help the names our parents bestow upon us. But that shouldn't prevent the rest of us from getting a small chuckle out of the fact that some poor kid is named after his great, great uncle, Belgian nobleman Lord Feedmy Frankenstein.

Sure you've heard all about British Footman, and Barkevious Mingo. But as with college football recruiting as a whole, this periodic feature will be about finding the next big name, so to speak. Ladies and gents, with no further ado, I present to you a future Cornhusker who really rocks.

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce you to Youngstown, Ohio linebacker and Nebraska commit Courtney Love. Oh yeah Courtney. They really want you. They really do. And given his tackling aptitude, I imagine that Love will make ball carriers ache like he aches. Assuming the Cornhusker coaches don't try to make him over.

At any rate, here's wishing Courtney lots of luck in Lincoln.

Go 'Dawgs!!!
