College coaches have unorthodox methods for evaluating potential student-athletes but perhaps none more so than Nebraska coach, Bo Pelini.
During a recent visit to offensive lineman Tanner Farmar, Pelini tested his recruit's strength with a wrestling match.
According to CBS Sports, Pelini asked during the visit: "I bet you can't take me down" to which Farmar's father, Brian told him "Go on, boy. If he wants to go, go."
Farmar, who is 6'4" and 315 pounds then got Pelini into a hold and lifted the coach up into the air. The pair then shared a hug. "It was a cool moment," Brian Farmar said reflecting on it later.
We're not sure whether Nebraska use this test on all of their recruits or if it is just limited to offensive lineman but it is nice for Farmar to know that he can handle the coach if he ever gets out of hand.
The Illinois based offensive guard has now signed a letter of intent with the Cornhuskers for next season.
The Cornhuskers went 9-4 last season and defeated Georgia 24-19 in the Gator Bowl.
