Hmm, ok, whatever. I still say that you're counting your chickens not only before the eggs hatch, but before the eggs have even been laid, since the kid has SIXTEEN colleges listed with EQUAL preference. Let me know when he moves Auburn above the pack of the other 15 on his preference list.

I won't try to claim that we've got kids like that "almost committed" or anything of the like - way too early. I will say though, that Nebraska is on 15 of the 150 kids lists, vs. 8 who have Auburn on their lists. Oh, and of those 15 - 2 actually HAVE already committed to the Huskers.
