    Ok, I'm sorry I made you all wait for this and it's probably not going to be as in depth as you'd like but here goes. Coach Frost - Opened the clinic real positively by emphatically praising the number of coaches in attendance (640 which spanned across many states) - Emphasized playing and practicing fast, attacking each piece of the program fast - Showed us film of UCF and how he likes to formation people to death. The more formations the more opponents have to spend time in practice lining up. - Each one of his playcalls fall under the categories of "Tempo", "Motion", or "Unique Formation" - Emphasized relationships and made the comment about each player has a story, he wants to know each one. Coach Duval (Best one of the day) - This guy will completely change the culture of the weight room for NU. - Left in 2001, said this place was unrecognizable when he got back - Absence of Husker Power Logo (lifter squatting) - Praised Mike Arthur and Boyd Epley - Increase Lean Body Mass, decrease body fat - emphasis on lifting heavy and emphasis on vertical jump (if Vert is improved, everything else will -- Pro Agility, 10 yd dash, 40 yd dash etc) - Khalil Mack at Buffalo - As freshman weighed 219, 15% BF, 32 inch Vert --- As Senior weighed 265, 7% BF, 42 inch vert -- Squatting 900 lbs - No offers but Buffalo as senior in HS Coach Held - Talked about RB's - vision lining up with Frost - talked about various technique and Inside Zone scheme. Play fakes - Phenomenal coach Coach DeWitt - Outside backers are in special hands. - OLB's have to play various technique - Head up TE, Outside TE, etc... - Shock - Lock - Escape (engaging blockers and shedding) - Everything about this position is VIOLENT - won't have it any other way - CTS/DVE (Collision the S#!T out of them/Deny Vertical Entry) - fancy way of jamming receivers - rerouting is with feet and body, not hands I unfortunately missed practice the next morning due to the coaches social the night before. You know how that goes. Wasn't too happy about it, but I just can't handle the next day anymore like I used to if I go to hard the night before. Sorry! I know it's probably not exactly what you all wanted but the bottom line is that this thing is in great hands. I could feel the culture being changed while I was there. I've been to a Pelini Clinic and a Mike Riley Clinic, and man oh man...my eyes were opened to a whole different world when it comes to college coaches. These guys have the "it" factor and each one I heard speak talked about unified vision and their love for Coach Frost and how Scott is an incredible human being to his players. The theme that kept coming up was RELATIONSHIPS. With players, staff, community.

    I can picture the conversation... POB: "Hey, Coach Frost...Ummm...Could I talk with you a moment, in private?" Frost: "Sure...here is your release, I signed it 10 days ago" POB: "But, wait, how did you know I was going to ask for that?" Frost: "Come on, even all the posters on HB knew"

    Fantastic piece by Bruce Feldman. He did a fabulous job of encapsulating the energy, the optimism, and excitement coming from Husker Nation. We are so proud to have a hometown coach who gets the culture. Looking forward to a great season! https://www.si.com/college-football/2018/04/17/scott-frost-nebraska-huskers-turnaround-ucf-oregon?utm_campaign=si-ncaafb&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_medium=social&xid=socialflow_twitter_si

    I am hesitant to post in this thread, but oh well, I'm going to do it... 1. I am transgender--male to female. 2. I am also a veteran of the US Army with a tour of Iraq from Operation Desert Shield/Storm on my service record. My hope is that everyone reads this and attempts to put themselves into my position. It is long, but please read it all. All of my experiences are of male to female transitioning. Females transitioning to males can have completely different experiences. I have a rather long, and complicated story so I won't dive too deep, just enough to give my thoughts. This is an incredibly broad topic with seemingly an infinite number of things I could say regarding my experiences. I want to start by prefacing that every thing I say here is my personal experience and I do not speak for anyone other than myself. I know a lot of transgender people have had many similar experiences to me, but that does not mean it is uniform across all experiences. I have so many jumbled thoughts here, I am struggling with trying to put them into a logical, and coherent order. The scene in The Last Jedi, where Rey says, "There's something inside of me, it's always been there, now it's awake and I don't know what to do with it." That really hit me hard emotionally because I have had these feelings all my life and I had no idea what to do with them. So I did what most other "men" with these feelings do: I buried them. I joined the Army out of high school and while in the Army I did everything I could to be try and be the man society expected me to be. After the Army, I went to college, joined a fraternity, and continued to put up that ultra-male front. But it was all a thin facade. The thoughts and feelings I experienced from the time I was about 6 years old, as I grew older, did not go away. In point of fact, they grew stronger. I did many things, looking back on my life, where I honestly think I was low-key trying to kill myself. I continued to hide, lie to myself, and pretend that these feelings weren't real. That, through sheer force of will, I could ignore these feelings and ride it out. I couldn't and one night several years ago I actually did attempt to kill myself. It was the lowest point in my life. I was broken in every conceivable way: physically, mentally, and emotionally. Then I started a job where I was making over 5,000 a month. I decided that now was the time time to begin my transition. I went through the entire process to change my name, get everything in my changed over to my female name. Things were progressing well and for the first time in my life I was genuinely happy. I felt so much at ease in my female form. The buzz/noise from thoughts and feelings that I had suppressed for two decades plus finally went silent. I was transitioning, I had a great job, and my life was finally on the upward trajectory I had always dreamed about. Then, the company I worked for unexpectedly closed. It's like the owner one day just said, f*** it, I've made enough money, and I'm done. Just like that, I was out of a job. I thought, no worries, I made some good money, I have some cash reserves, I can get a new job. Well, I couldn't get a new job because literally no one would hire me. I would walk into an interview, I would get "read" as a man in a dress, and the interview would become nothing more than a courtesy. I did manage after a while to get a job as a convenience store clerk. I told the owner that I would come to work as a "male" and pretend, even though all my personal information was under my female name. The worst part was I had to stop my transition because I literally did not make enough money to continue. Just suffice it to say, transitioning is really, really expensive. T-androgen blockers, estrogen, regular visits to the doctor, endocrinologist, therapists...there just wasn't the funds to continue. So I went into a holding pattern of sorts where continued to present as "male" all while having my drivers license, credit cards, social security card, everything in my female persona. Concurrently, during this time it really opened my eyes to just how much bigotry LBGT people actually go through. I had an instance where I was out with a few friends at a bar downtown. I was of course dressed as my female persona, my driver's license had my female name, etc. I used the women's bathroom as I always did, but that night, I damn near got beat up by a group of guys. What happened was, one of the guy's girlfriend took exception to my using the ladies room. She felt "threatened" even though I was walking out as she was walking in. And the two friends I was with, both tiny 5'3" 110lbs lesbians, would have been no help whatsoever had I needed backup in a fight. Suffice it to say, I high-tailed it out of there because while I can usually handle myself with some bigot one on one, attempting to take on him and three of his friends would more than likely not have ended well. Then there was another instance where I was out shopping at the local mall, minding my own business, and I hear someone shout, "crossdresser." I did not turn around, or look to see who it was that said that, because that would have confirmed to them their suspicions. Neither did I increase my speed of walking, but again figured that it was time to leave before something bad happened. I have so many instances in my life where I am walking down the street, minding my own business, and out of nowhere I get verbally harassed and threatened. Being transgender means you can never let your guard down, even for a second. I may be in a situation where everything is fine, but it can turn into a dangerous, life-threatening, situation in the blink of an eye. A couple of years ago, with the emergence of these "Bathroom Bills", as if trans women's lives weren't hard enough, and fraught with enough peril, a group of religious, bible-thumping lunatics down in North Carolina literally threw made an entire mountain range out of what had previously been a molehill.. All of a sudden, across the seemingly entire nation, there was a national uproar over transgender women using the bathroom. I'm just here thinking, all I want to do is using the bathroom. All through this, I have altered drastically how I live, who I let into my life, and how I conduct myself socially. I basically refuse to go into any public event where I am in female form. If I want to go to a Nebraska football game, I go in "stealth mode" where I present as a male. I do so because I do not not want any trouble. The irony of these bathroom bills is the proponents say they don't want to uncomfortable with a trans woman in the bathroom with them. It is as if my being uncomfortable their bigotry and stupidity doesn't matter. The weird thing about the entire "bathroom" debate is the fact that females transitioning to males always seems get a pass. I doubt you will never hear any anti-trans bigot say that he doesn't want some female dressed as male in the bathroom with his little boy(s). I mean maybe that has been said, but I haven't heard it--and this is a subject I tend to follow pretty closely. The criticism is always, "I don't want some man in a dress in the bathroom with my little girl(s). The stupidity of these bathroom bills is that the people who advocate for such ludicrous laws don't seem to understand that if someone (regardless of gender) wants to go into a bathroom to commit a crime, such as assault, rape, etc...no law is ever going to stop them. Here is the cold, hard truth: trans women attacking someone in a public bathroom is like the existence of bigfoot: many people claim it is true, but no one has any direct evidence. But let's say it does happen. For literally every one instance of a trans woman attacking someone in a bathroom, I can give you hundreds of examples of straight, cis-gendered people attacking, assaulting, raping, and even murdering trans women. And for trans women of color, the danger of being assaulted and/or murdered is three to four times more likely than if they're white. When I go out now to a restaurant in my female form, I make sure I go to the bathroom before I leave my house and I consciously limit the amount of beverages I consume and I wait until after I get home to go to the bathroom. But all of this pales in comparison to the nearly 40% suicide rate of trans people. This is a subject that many people talk about, but few actually understand the why of it. Imagine for a moment that you're constantly told by the larger hetero cis-gendered society that you are: an abomination sick a pervert disgusting not a "real" woman unworthy of being hired for a job, regardless of how qualified you are disowned by your parents subject to bullying while teachers and other people in positions of authority do nothing to protect you or punish those who bully you someone who should be killed and/or eradicated off the planet not worthy of any protections under the law How long would it take you to begin contemplating taking your own life? Larger cis-gendered society talks about the high suicide rate for trans people, but almost none ever want to admit their culpability in it. Because on an individual level, cis-people often don't see how their little footprint is all that big of a deal. But it is a cumulative effect that creates a society where trans people, specifically women, are too often portrayed as pedophiles, sexual deviants, and corrupt, amoral, abominations who will sexually abuse and assault women and little girls at the first chance we get. Nothing could be further from the truth. All I (and I assume all other trans women) want is the freedom to live my (our) life (lives) without being harassed, assaulted, and/or murdered. Mike Huckabee, in an all too familiar instance of stupidity, has said more than once, "If I had known at age 15, that to get entrance into a girls locker room, all I had to do was pretend to be a girl, I would have have done it." Mike Huckabee's Idiocy Mike Huckabee's Idiocy 2 To me, this kind of thinking reveals a mind of a psychopath. To be transgender, here are the absolute minimum things one has to do in the state of Idaho (other jurisdictions may be different) you have to do: 1) Change your name legally which usually involves running an advertisement in a newspaper of record in the county you live in once a week for four weeks. 2) File paper work with the court to schedule a hearing for a name change. 3) Go to doctor for years who specializes in gender dysphoria. 4) See an endocrinologist and be on hormones for years. 5) Get all your personal information changed: social security card, credit card, etc. 6) Put up with the verbal and physical harassment from people like Mike Huckabee. The biggest irony of all though, is just how much hate, bigotry, and transphobia I encounter on a daily basis from cis-gendered gays and lesbians. I hate to admit it, but in many instances they are just as ignorant and bigoted as Mike Pence, Mike Huckabee, etc. It's the biggest reason why I never go to Pride any more. It sounds weird to say, but I simply do not feel safe at Pride. Being a transgender woman means I literally have a near impossible time trusting anyone. I have encountered people who are nice to my face and behind my back hate my guts. Again, I realize a lot of people experience that, but it is I think far worse and more prevalent for someone like me. A lot of people like to think they're open-minded. But when it is time to put that thinking to the test, they're really not. Being friends with a trans woman carries a social price far too steep for many cis-gendered persons to pay. If you're a guy and you're friends with a trans woman, you'll get asked, "Are you a ****?" There is the social taboo of dating trans women. I don't necessarily think that's wrong or "transphobic" to not want to date trans women because sexual attraction is just who and what you like. But outside of sexual preferences, many cis-gays have just as much hatred towards trans women as the larger hetero society. And in the larger society, I am not singling out hetero republicans here because many supposedly liberal democrats are just as closed-minded and bigoted as others are. So what does all this mean? I feel like there are so many more things I could say and worry that I haven't extrapolate enough on the current points I did make. When I see a beautiful woman, my first thought is always, "I want to BE her." It is never, "Oh I'd like to have sex with her." Well that's not entirely true, but it is probably 5th or 6th on the list. And I like men as well, but definitely prefer women. Today, I mostly present as "male." I want nothing more to resume, then finish, my transition. But honestly, at this point, I'm not really sure I'll ever get there. I'm now at the age where I'm beginning to think there's no point. That time has passed me by. In summary, being transgender is not easy. It is "easier" if you are white and have money, but that's true for most everything in America. I guess I am typing all this because I want cis-gendered people on this board (and in overall society also) to realize that we are out there. We are just as normal as you, we have thoughts, feelings, hopes, and dreams just like everyone else. If anyone has any questions, please feel free to ask. Edit: I meant to mention this the first time around but with everything else I wanted to say it slipped my mind... Please do me a small favor: next time you come across a story about a trans woman... If there are comments left, like on Yahoo or MSN... If anyone thinks I am joking or exaggerating about what trans women go through... Please, please, PLEASE take time to read as many of the comments as you can. You will (hopefully) be absolutely appalled at what you read. And the horrible comments won't be from one or two people. The horrible, bigoted comments will come from a large majority of people across presumably all walks of life.

    Man you sure are taking other peoples opinions on Gebbia being the starter personally. Not even bad mouthing POB, just simply stating Gebbia throws a nice ball or has a good arm. Everyone here has an opinion and those opinions dont matter come Sept 3. If POB is the starter, nobody will want him to fail.

    Also... Sam has been going from one of my favorites (when he wasn't at the OWH), to less liked. He was a "toxic culture" excuse maker for Riley's tenure, and even up until late last season, was trying to pin things on the previous staff. Hey Sam, maybe, just maybe it wasn't "sabotage" against the program. Maybe, the fact that most everyone didn't like Shawn "Bob Diaco's the greatest coach at the school" Eichorst, was because he shouldn't have been here, and they were trying to save the program from being run further into the ground. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    When you're so far right of center, anything to the left of you is "liberal." There was literally a thread on this board less than two years ago where some of the more right-wing members wanted a section of the board of their very own where they could post without any "liberals" countering their opinions with facts. There has never been such a thread from the self-avowed liberals. The problem with the ultra-right posters on this board is they want to fight fact with emotion. Or, in some extreme cases, fight fact with untruths. Our good, honest, dyed-in-the-wool conservatives have no such problems because they allow facts to form their opinions. BRB, TGH, JJ, and a couple others whose names are escaping me right now (sorry) are excellent at this. Of course, like jsneb83 said, most people here are moderates, but they're conflated with liberals by some people who lack perspective. So it goes.

    @84HuskerLaw if you expect the team to be polished and clicking in a new offense and defense after 14 practices, then your expectations are way too high. The team does have a long ways to go, as they were 4-8 last season for a reason. Regarding the offense, Frost said the game plan was relatively vanilla. This probably means very few true RPO's, double-moves by the WR's, or other more complex plays. All of the passing to the sideline sets up the deep pass off of that. Frost isn't going to show that in the Spring game, and his QB's may not be quite ready for the read off that type of play. I think the o-line could be an issue this season, but they are showing more "want-to" and effort than they did the last half of 2017. One of the big things the team struggled with yesterday was getting the signals in and understanding all of the signals. That will improve greatly during the season. If you think the team will not improve at all from the Spring to the actual season, then you are sorely mistaken.

    As Moiraine's has already pointed out, the part that didn't age well was your predicting that Martinez would redshirt and the guys other than POB can only serve as backups. This implies that you were predicting POB would be the guy this year and Martinez could challenge him next year. I don't really care if you were right or wrong but you've been running with this narrative that everyone is out to crap on POB when, in reality, the only thing that's been happening is you've been carrying the POB torch and seem to be pissed that everyone else is willing to let the competition play out and accept whoever emerges on top. So yeah, it didn't age well.

    I prayed when I was a Christian, but now I don't unless I'm eating with believers who pray before meals. Everyone I know knows where I stand on religion, but when they pray I fold my hands and bow my head respectfully, and if it's the Common Table Prayer I say it with them. I don't have to believe what my friends and family believe to be respectful of them, and respecting the people I love costs me nothing.

    So to add to the "facts" ... the WHO (World Health Organization) evaluates the ICD (International Classification of Diseases) and makes changes when its deemed necessary. The last update was in 1990 (I think that's when this transgender number was added) and they are updating the entire book again this year. Funny thing, they have submitted that transgender should be taken out of the classification of mental disease. It's been through multiple committees and been approved, so I expect that you'll see this go away this year. So @Ric Flair when the APA guidelines change as planned, will that change your opinion of these folks and where they belong in society? The funny part is, they bucketed transgender into the mental disease group because of the "if you have it and it makes you distressed" definition. After doing clinical trials and looking at data they found out that it wasn't the transgender part that distressed them, it was the social rejection and violence - NOT being transgendered. So expect the new codes to include gender incongruence in sexual diagnosis, not mental disorders. And it will be viewed as a medical and biological disorder. Exactly like homosexuality has moved and "hysteria" (often used for labelling women) and then have both fallen off all together. The reason gender incongruence will still be included will be so that these folks can get the medical help they need. And not just for surgical sex changes and hormones (I"m assuming that will be what you question immediately). So in a nutshell - the society around these folks are what is really a mental illness - not them. I anticipate that your opinion will stay the same, similar to the thoughts you've expressed about abortions. Even though that is a medically approved procedure you think it's indefensible and should be curbed. So that medical coding procedure, and all the opinions and data hasn't made you feel differently about it. I'd expect when this changes you will hold your position as it too seems deeper than a definition in a billing book or a medical procedure to you.

    Not quoting that whole post from my phone. No, Nebraska is not in the middle of the division in talent. The recruiting rankings aren't perfect but they aren't far off. I believe we've had the best recruiting rank every single year in our division. At worst we're in 2nd. We just haven't had coaches who use it correctly and coach it to be better.

    I was bored and wanted to take a closer look at in-state recruiting for P5 teams. Made a metric scale on composite ratings per player - also subtracted points if other D1 schools in your state and divided the total number by other P5 teams in your state. I understand some states are in a region where border states have been established or are 'hot beds'. Some P5 teams aren't quite as equal either. If you could only recruit in your state, what type of recruiting numbers are we looking at for P5 schools? (122.5) Georgia: Georgia, Georgia Tech (GAST, GSU) -10 5 (4) 4 (39) 3 (114) (90.3) Florida: Florida, Florida St, Miami (FIU, FAU, UCF, USF) -40 5 (4) 4 (47) 3 (146) (69.8) California: California, Stanford, UCLA, USC (FRSNO, SDSU, SJSU) -20 5 (4) 4 (41) 3 (152) (64) Maryland/D.C: Maryland (NAVY) -3 5 (0) 4 (11) 3 (34) (62) New Jersey: Rutgers 5 (0) 4 (7) 3 (41) (57) Ohio: Ohio St (AKRN, BG, CIN, KENT, MIAOH, OH, TOL) -35 5 (1) 4 (8) 3 (62) (51.4) Texas: Baylor, TCU, Texas, Texas A&M Texas Tech (HOU, NTEX, RICE, SMU, TEXST, UTEP, UTSA) -50 5 (2) 4 (43) 3 (172) (50) Missouri: Missouri 5 (0) 4 (8) 3 (26) (44.5) Alabama: Alabama, Auburn (UAB, SBAMA, TROY) -15 5 (2) 4 (11) 3 (59) (43.5) Tennessee: Tennessee, Vanderbilt (MEM, MTENN) -10 5 (0) 4 (20) 3 (37) (35) Louisiana: LSU (TUL, ULL, ULM) -10 5 (3) 4 (9) 3 (45) (32.5) Mississippi: Mississippi, Mississippi St (SMISS) -5 5 (1) 4 (12) 3 (28) (30) Michigan: Michigan, Michigan St (CMU, EMU, WMU) -12 5 (1) 4 (9) 3 (39) (24.5) Virginia: Virginia, Virginia Tech (ODU) -1 5 (1) 4 (9) 3 (17) (24) Arizona: Arizona, Arizona St 5 (0) 4 (5) 3 (33) (23.5) Illinois: Illinois, Northwestern (NIU) -8 5 (0) 4 (4) 3 (33) (23) Arkansas: Arkansas (ARKST) -5 5 (0) 4 (4) 3 (16) (22.5) Washington: Washington, Washington St 5 (0) 4 (3) 3 (36) (19) North Carolina: Duke, North Carolina, North Carolina St, Wake Forest (APPST, CHA, ECU) -15 5 (1) 4 (13) 3 (46) (14) Pennsylvania: Pittsburgh, Penn St (TEMPLE) -5 5 (0) 4 (1) 3 (30) (13) Kentucky: Kentucky, Louisville (WKU) -3 5 (0) 4 (5) 3 (14) (11) Indiana: Indiana, Notre Dame, Purdue (BALL) -3 5 (0) 4 (5) 3 (21) (11) West Virginia: West Virginia (MAR) -2 5 (1) 4 (1) 3 (4) (10.5) Iowa: Iowa, Iowa St 5 (0) 4 (3) 3 (9) (10) Oklahoma: Oklahoma, Oklahoma St (TULSA) -2 5 (0) 4 (3) 3 (13) (9.6) Utah: BYU, Utah, Utah St 5:star (0) 4:star (2) 3:star (23) (9.5) South Carolina: Clemson, South Carolina (CCU) -1 5:star (1) 4:star (1) 3:star (11) (9) Colorado: Colorado (AF, CSU) -6 5:star (0) 4:star (0) 3:star (15) (9) Minnesota: Minnesota 5:star (0) 4:star (2) 3:star (3) (9) Nebraska: Nebraska 5:star (0) 4:star (2) 3:star (3) (7.5) Oregon: Oregon, Oregon St 5:star (0) 4:star (2) 3:star (9) (7) New York: Syracuse (ARMY, BUFF) -2 5:star (0) 4:star (1) 3:star (6) (6.5) Kansas: Kansas, Kansas St 5:star (0) 4:star (2) 3:star (7) (5) Wisconsin: Wisconsin 5:star (0) 4:star (0) 3:star (5) (3) Massachusetts: Boston College (UMASS) -1 5:star (0) 4:star (0) 3:star (4)

    I don't think that's quite the angle he was going for. It's more if a walk-on works his way into a starting job at OL or WR, a lot of fans will embrace that as showing the value of the walk-on tradition and rewarding the guy for his hard work. But if a walk-on were to start at QB or RB, it would be viewed as the guys we recruited at those positions being failures and a sign that our recruiting wasn't getting the job done. Edit: This was in reply to @Cdog923 and @BigRedBuster

    If Alex Moran from Blue Mountain State taught me anything it’s that the best job in the world is second string QB.

    I find it interesting that, after some sense of dissent that they weren't allowed in practice, so many places threw the content behind paywalls this morning.

    Frost wants a competitive edge and limited distractions as they install everything and change the culture. There's no reason for the media to publish every single thing the team is doing in practices. I always thought Riley was way too open with the media.
