When NU fans and recruiting zealots - myself included - got all fired up at the prospect of the Huskers landing much ballyhooed cornerback prospect Reggie Smith in 2005, we just couldn't help ourselves. When he chose Oklahoma over Nebraska at the last minute, it was crushing. I should have learned my lesson. But, when another amazing prospect verbally committed to NU two years later, I again bought in. I coveted the chance to see Travis Lewis in Scarlet and Cream. Again, Husker hearts broke when the player chose Oklahoma instead. Lewis' stellar performance at OU and the fact that NU must face him Saturday aren't exactly making it any easier.
