In the lead-up to National Signing Day, the Nebraska Cornhuskers are orchestrating a late-game surge in their pursuit of a truly remarkable recruiting coup.
Five-star quarterback Dylan Raiola is presently committed to the Georgia Bulldogs, but there are rumblings in the college football sphere that he might be considering a switch to the Cornhuskers, potentially delivering them a resounding victory in the recruiting battle.
Interestingly, some Georgia fans have expressed their displeasure at the prospect of Raiola changing his commitment. One passionate fan even took an unconventional approach by posting on a Bulldogs message board, making a rather unusual request.

This fervent supporter inquired whether anyone on the forum had connections at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson Airport. They candidly acknowledged the complexity of meddling with commercial flights but suggested that “loyal UGA pilots or flight attendants” could potentially arrange for Raiola’s flight to be canceled.
The fan went further, suggesting that Raiola might “misplace his checked bags” and have to endure the Nebraska winter without suitable winter attire.
Should the Cornhuskers succeed in flipping Raiola, it would be an extraordinary triumph for head coach Matt Rhule and a significant milestone for the Nebraska football program. Rhule has voiced his ambition to restore Nebraska football to its former glory, reclaiming its position among the elite teams in college football.
Securing the commitment of one of the nation’s top players could serve as a pivotal step toward achieving this ambitious goal.
As National Signing Day approaches, the college football world, including Nebraska, Georgia, and many others, will be eagerly awaiting Raiola’s final decision.
