We're still "in play" with 3 top players, should be get all three we'll be sitting pretty - 2 of 3 would still be pretty good, with the small class size.

Meanwhile, 6 of the 7 (way too) early 2010 top 25 lists have Nebraska in the top 10, with 2 of them ranking the Huskers as high as #5. The outlier places them #13.
