    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    Never mind. I see I'm the third person to bring up that half of Michigan's ranked wins weren't ranked by the end of the season. Brought to you by the Redundant School of Redundancy.

    which pitch is the best?

    He had a pretty nasty curveball. I'd Maddux's two seamer or Johnson's slider.

    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    I always say that if Nebraska and Michigan had played in 1997, the Huskers would have won by 50. And @Mavric's post would be the response I would ideally like to have. Now winning by 50 might be a bit of homerism, but there is no question in my mind NU beats MU handily--minimum of 3 TDs. Michigan's offense would have been stifled by our defense, and our offense would have ran roughshod over Michigan's defense.

    We have a serious quarterback depth problem

    The problem was, in the case of Bubba Starling, there was no backup plan. ?Or maybe Jamal Turner was the backup plan? Oh well, water under the bridge now. I just hope going forward that Nebraska signs a QB in every single recruiting class. Question for all the research and stats wonks out there: For the QB position, do 4 have a higher transfer rate than 3 ? Of course you'll probably have to scale it for porportion...I would think anyway--because there are more 3 star ranked players at any given position than there are 4 stars.

    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    Back in 1997, you have to remember that ESPN was building up the Big Ten Conference, making it seem that it was the best conference in the country. In reality it wasn't, and it wasn't even close. For all those that say that Michigan played a tougher schedule, that is also wrong. See the link below describing why the AP got it wrong in 1997. Just a caution. It goes into all 25 team rankings in 1997 so the article is somewhat long, but it clearly delineates why Nebraska should have been voted No. 1. http://tiptop25.com/fixing1997.html The author is not a Husker Fan, he just objectively lays out why Nebraska should have been voted number 1. I'm curious if anybody who reads the article can come back and argue logically that Michigan had claim to the title (aside from the fact it wasn't decided on the field).

    What did we learn? -Game 2- Troy

    I believe Colorado is on their 5th year with their coach and schemes and Troy is on their 4th year with their coach and schemes, so logically you would think a team on its 1st year with its coach and schemes might be a little more mistake prone and reacting a little slower.

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    In a utilitarian sense, I support their fight, as I would any effort to keep this man off the Court. He's more than proven to me he doesn't belong there. As for the politics of it... I'm frustrated and upset about this whole process because I don't want a conservative Supreme Court for the next couple decades. But it is what it is and I've resigned myself to it. Elections do have consequences and conservatives cared more about the Court than liberals did. They cared about it enough to make a Faustian bargain with a clown like Trump to claim it.

    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    Others have already covered this more or less, but to reiterate: The only bits of argument that Michigan has are the Missouri game (the kick should have been illegal, but it wasn't, and we won), and the Colorado game (week 1 home non-rivalry opponent vs week 12 away rivalry opponent playing for bowl eligibility who made the score closer than it seemed late). The arguments that Nebraska has are plentiful. They had an all-time great defense with a mediocre offense - we had an elite offense with a still really great defense. Going by end of season rankings, we played a tougher schedule, we beat more ranked teams than them, and we beat those teams by a MUCH larger margin of victory than they did. We ended the season much stronger than them with a dominant victory over a better opponent. We were ranked higher than them all season until the Missouri game when they leapfrogged us, which means it's totally fair for us to leapfrog them back. Their biggest strength was their pass defense, which wouldn't have meant much in playing us.

    We have a serious quarterback depth problem

    Bunch did about as well as i expected him to do so far, and i don't see him becoming Tom Brady-ish any time soon. If Martinez doesn't get hurt and Gebbia stays, Bunch probably wouldn't have ever taken a game snap for the Huskers. Hes a big step down from Martinez, but he's all we have, and i'm really hoping he doesn't get hurt too, well be screwed.

    Thanks for posting. She is one Nebraska's All Timers. The last I knew, she was one of a handful of million dollar pro players. I don't know how much longer she'll play on the Team USA and professionally, but the fact that she is Captain on Team USA leads me to wonder if coaching is in her future. Cook is 62 and probably has several years left coaching the Huskers, but how cool would it be if, when she retired from playing, she came on board as an assistant with the possibility of taking over when Cook retires.
  13. Crazy what anyone would expect with a walk-on. Srsly, a walk-on. Still have to run the offense you practice, can’t just “draw some stuff up”. Hope for limited mistakes and a few good bounces to even have a chance to win....with a walkon
  14. obviously frost is here for at least 5 years. wonder if lane has interest in coordinator position down the road to follow in his dad's footsteps. i get that he's from nebraska, but it's odd to be supporting another team mid season.

    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    in 96, #11 Michigan went out to Boulder and avenged the Hail Mary, Colorado was 5th in the nation. 97 was the rubber match between McCartney and his former d-backs coach. Are you sure it was just another game?

    Nebraska will beat Michigan

    Pass interference or defensive holding i would accept if a DB is getting torched and would otherwise result in a TD. Of course our DB's dont have the craftiness that I used to have with an accidental leg entanglement..... I was slow so I had lots of tricks

    Nebraska vs. Michigan ..... in 1997

    That's not a rivalry.
  19. yes the pitch relationship was bad from the start. at first he is too close and then once AM hits the corner and heads up field he is way behind. Of course this takes quite a bit of practice to get really good at doing. I think if AM attacks the outside of Morgan's block it forces the safety to have to go over the top and the MLB to take a different angle probably taking him out of the play. Then if Speilman keeps good pitch relationship he is off to the races (if AM pitches).

    They (Democrats) may be wrong; but I'm pretty sure it's their motivation

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    And they'd be wrong. You're underestimating Senate Republicans. Mitch McConnell is one of the most effective yet despicable political operators of his era. I almost never think he's pulling strings for the right goals, but he certainly knows how to pull them. They've got, what, a month and a half left? It would take them at most two weeks to get somebody confirmed. I could see them breaking precedent to do it in a week if they needed to - confirmation hearings on Monday and a vote by the time the week is out. They'll do whatever it takes to get it done. I've picked up a lot of McConnell from those who report on Washington for a living - this Supreme Court seat is THE endgame for him. He values it above everything except keeping Republicans in Congress. If Kavanaugh eventually falls, they'll just move on to another name on their list. In fact, McConnell didn't want Kavanaugh because he knew he was a lifelong partisan with a very thick paper trail that could come back to bite him. They knew all of this was a possibility with him. The ones who really wanted Kavanaugh were the retiring Kennedy (part of the deal to broker his retirement was him having a hand in choosing his successor - he pushed for both Kavanaugh and Gorsuch, both of whom had previously clerked for him) and the WH legal counsel, Don McGahn. TL;DR: If he goes down, they'll pick another conservative from their list. They'll rush them in under the clock if they have to. Absolutely no way they leave the seat open.

    Year One: Better Offense or Defense?

    I think if someone on the defensive side started pulling his weight the defense would be a lot better

    We have a serious quarterback depth problem

    Our running game is a scissors draw... except without Martinez we only have half a scissor. There was one series when they decided they were tired of this crap and told him to just hand it to Bell on three called runs and take control of the game on the ground. 3 runs and a punt. Same as with TMart, our runners only seem to run well when they have a qb who can take it to the house and has to be accounted for. I don’t know how good our RBs are but it don’t seem like Ameer is out there. They were supposed to carry the load... how many times did they take it down and score? Seems like they better draw up something besides hoping the superstar quarterback will do it all. I didn’t for a second expect our walkon to be anything but serviceable. I knew he would make mistakes and was hoping they’d do something to limit those. We got out coached.
