As a native of Minnesota, Nebraska senior receiver Levi Falck grew up watching Minnesota Gophers football.
He’s not a fan anymore, though.
“They didn’t recruit me at all,” said Falck, noting the Gophers did recruit him as a baseball player before eventually backing off.
Falck, of Circle Pines, Minnesota, joined the South Dakota football program, making 14 starts with the Coyotes from 2016 to 2019. He caught 70 passes for 774 yards and a pair of touchdowns for USD, and thought that maybe would attract Minnesota’s attention.
“When I entered the transfer portal (after the 2019 season), they kind of were iffy on that and backed out,” Falck said. “So I don’t like Minnesota. I don’t like Minnesota at all.”

It’s a subject that comes up between Falck and offensive tackle Bryce Benhart, a native of Lakeville, Minnesota.
“We’re locker buddies, so he’s right next to me in the locker room,” Falck said. “We always talk about how we don’t like Minnesota and we’ve got to beat them.”
Falck has played in all seven games for Nebraska so far this season and has nine catches for 119 yards. He's come on over the past two games, logging six catches for 69 and a go-ahead touchdown against Michigan on Saturday.


“He’s fired up just to be starting,” Falck added. “And even more fired up to get a chance to beat our hometown.”

Falck has no 247 recruiting profile that I can see, no wonder why the gophers didn't want him.

In case anyone is wondering, Falck transferred to Nebraska as a walk-on from South Dakota. They did award him a scholarship for his senior year.

Doesn't sound like these two guys are moving back to Minnesota after their college days are over. Clearly some immaturity the way these two guys are handling college life if they are still moaning and complaining. Get that from their parents?

Wonder if he was told to “Falck off”?

They are going to be so disappointed after Saturday.

I see Bruce Burntheart becoming the next Burt Bulimia. Well, without the success.

I don't think either would see much playing time here, Falck maybe on special teams.

Falck wasn't recruited, but Benhart was a blue chip recruit. There's nothing shocking here. Of course Falck is motivated and wants to ball out against his home state team. It's why NDSU was crazy motivated a few years back. It's an entire team of kids not recruited by the Gophers.

It always blows me away when guys that were not recruited by a single power 5 school act all offended that the Gophers didn't give them a scholarship. So bizarre.
And it blows my mind that someone who chooses to write about the sport professionally doesn’t pursue that very obvious line of questioning with the player.

Falck doesn’t really help us as an upper class men on a team full of upper classmen linemen.

beneart didn’t want to be here.


they probably want to beat Minnesota. The news would be if they didn’t want to beat teams other than Minnesota
