    The QB play is something I really expected to improve under Riely and Langsdorf. I guess Tommy cut down on the int's, but I expected greater improvement. Maybe it was the ankle, maybe you just cant teach accuracy. I will hope a fresh start will go better with a new guy at QB. Or Langsdorf just couldn't get him to stop throwing 50-50 bombs when he got outside the pocket. Tommy also struggled with getting enough height on the ball to get it over the line. That's where a 6'5" QB has a huge advantage over a QB who is 6'.

    No. His defensive scheme last year was an abomination. This year's is significantly better but still nothing great. We've benefited from playing a lot of terrible offenses. The only two good offenses we've played this year we had trouble stopping (Oregon, without their best offensive player for most of the game) or literally couldn't stop at all (Ohio St.). So I'm not a Banker fan. Although the reason I bring that up - and why it's in this thread - is because I think Bray is going to start getting calls and we may have to find a way to get him a promotion to keep him. Probably not this year but it's not going to be long. And I think losing him would be bad - worth shipping Banker out to keep him. Banker isn't going anywhere this year, and if the time comes to replace him someday you do so by hiring a great, proven DC. Not a position coach you are afraid to lose. Your entire thought about Bray is verbatum what people said about Papuchis at one point. How did that work out? And that was with a defensive minded head coach. You seriously think firing Banker and handing the D over to a guy who has never called plays is a good plan when Riley is all offense at this stage of his career? I don't particularly want Bray moving on but if he does then the way you replace him is with another stud linebacker coach not by putting him in a position he likely is not ready for - expecially at a program like Nebraska. So tired of people wringing their hands and worrying if people are going to leave someday like this isn't f'n Nebraska. A big problem the past decade plus is for some dumb reason we started making decisions that make the program weaker in fear of losing talent. If good talent leaves it sucks , but you man the F up and treat it as an opportunity to upgrade and get stronger. Agreed use money to keep Bray & find the best option to be the DC if we get to that point.

    I completely agree. It would be nice to have a scheme where the QB is thinking oh sh!t who is coming to hit me this down. I would give up a few big plays if it meant we were laying the wood to the QB most of the other plays.

    He does have that right to protest, just like everyone has the right to call him out on it if they don't like the way he is protesting. Sorry but his right to protest doesn't trump anyone's right of free speech.Wise men and fools have the right to free speech. Both should not be respected equally.I agree. His foolish disrespect of our national anthem is his right on his own time. But he should never had been allowed to embarrass and offend the university and state while wearing a Nebraska uniform. Good riddance. except the University wasn't embarrassed or offended, they supported him. Looks like you are the one offended. What does the left say, if one person is offended by what he did it IS offensive. Many were offended by the blatant disrespect he showed. Many weren't, including many servicemen & women, who publicly offered Rose-Ivey support. He is free to protest. You are free to be angered by it. You are NOT free to tell him to stop protesting. What you should be doing, instead of blaming "millennials" is showing him/them the error of their ways by modeling the better behavior you expect from him. Here is your problem. Maybe sometime you will figure it out. OK, fine, you're hung up on ONE WORD. You are NOT free to tell him to stop protesting. You are NOT free to make him stop protesting. Never once have I said I could make him stop. That is his choice. Same as everyone is free to question it. His freedom does not trump mine or anyone else's. Even if you don't agree. That is the point that you are not willing to accept. This will be my last post in this thread. I will let you have the last word.

    The irony. The Irony of what. That when push comes to shove most of the people debating this won't due a damn thing to make change for themselves. Don't get this twisted. I don't disagree with the point MRI is trying to make, its how he is doing it. If he wanted to take 10 min of every interview & shed light on the issues that bother him. I would have no problem. I would support that. If he wanted to run out of the gate with his fist up, less people would be judging him on it. I'm glad I live in a Country where he has the right to protest. I'm also glad I have the right to question it. I don't know semaphore or Morse Code, so I can't spell it out any differently. I speak a little French, Spanish, Russian & Italian - would a quick explanation in any of those languages help? If "liberals" are bad because they have a problem with people who don't do what the "liberals" want them to do, what does that make you? Liberal? Have I ever said he is not free to protest? No, I have not. Sorry you got all butt hurt that some else called out his crappy play and tied it to him taking a knee. Guess maybe you should focus on reading comprehension.

    Imagine the fans after the 2nd time he went for 2 & didn't get it.

    Next time will you add in a Occupy Democrats article. It would be the same trash as this. Also I didn't use one to put down another. I showed you how one went about fixing their situation.

    I'm not sure what you're saying with the bold. Are you claiming that this is what "liberals" do? Are you claiming that you're "liberal?" Because this is exactly what you're doing. Actually this is what you have done in many threads not just this one. I have said many times he has the right to take a knee, but I also have the right to disagree with it. Something you have said we don't have the right to question or have said is foolish for us to question. Prove it. I don't need to, Prove me wrong. Many people have spoken out in favor of Kaepernick & the Husker trio, from many races and political ideologies. So? This is straight out of Trump's mouth. "A lot of people are saying __________" as if that means anything. A lot of people say this. A lot of people say the opposite. This isn't proof of anything. I have a family full of Veterans, I also have a family full of active duty members. My family is a giant melting pot of all races. There is very little we all agree on but this is one area we all agree. I've got a better idea for all the athletes and people who feel oppressed. DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. Taking a knee at football game or starting crap on fire while you protest is not getting the message out. Its making your point mute & making you look bad while doing it. If you want change you have to start with yourself. Stop calling each other racially charged words. You don't see white people walking around saying "Whats up Cracker or Honkey" Look at the Asian culture & see how they are flourishing. They were oppressed severely by this Country. Do you ever hear them complain about how they are owed anything? They have used their family structure to pull themselves up. Kaepernick couldn't even take his butt into vote for change & for those saying both choices were terrible. He could have wrote in a name. You can write in anyone you want. Sure that person may not win but at least you went out and put effort into the change you were looking for. Thats the great part to this Country. Change is there if your willing to work for it.

Yes I am free to tell him to stop (He doesn't have to) & question anything I would like to question. You give the same typical liberal answers. You are free to do what you want as long as we agree with it & if you question it your _______! Fill in the blank with whatever attack word fits ie foolish, racist, hateful or just don't get it. FYI the majority of servicemen & women find it highly disrespectful. Many people have spoke out against it from many races. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EpMAyx0FhNY

  13. SI early NFL draft look

    I'm really not that surprised. Gerry really struggled last year, but has come on strong this year. I think he will be off the board by the third round. Westerkamp has had some injuries that have kept him off the field, that always hurts draft stock. I really believe he will be a late pick along with Banderas, who has also had some injury set backs. Carter is not your typical NFL TE. I see him as a FA who will make a team. Gerry, Westerkamp & Banderas are really the only guys I think who have a chance to be called on draft day.

    Care to elaborate? Do you really need him too?
