  1. QB Position Switches

    Don't know which player will start and which one will be #2, but I am confident the best player will be the starter. Of that I am convinced.
  2. OT Willie Canty [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    Looks like between his junior and senior year somebody coached him up on the need to finish the play till the whistle blows. I feel like he's got the physical tools, but will need some development to be great at the college level. And, I think that will happen.
  3. LB Caleb Tannor [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    On the fourth signee now and no Tannor yet....ugh.
  4. 2018 Starting Lineup Campaigning Thread

    I was in the 20th row, last seat of the West Stadium before it becomes the North End zone section and was focused on that play as you got wiped out. Quite a hit you took. You'll get my vote for where ever you are nominated!
  5. Quarterback Voting Thread

  6. QB Matthew Tago [Oregon State - Signed LOI]

    This ^^^. Just kids for goodness sakes, and we have very little insight into their "big picture" that leads them to their decision.
  7. RB Maurice Washington [Nebraska-Signed LOI]

    Question for all current / former high end players. I was only relatively good at track...sprints specifically. I knew exactly which runners from other schools in our conference were my competition, and while I hated/respected/disrespected/feared them, I also got absolutely jacked up when I'd get the chance to run head-to-head against them. But I was never good enough in a sport to fear "the new guy" taking my place (which was generally the bench). How do guys like Wilbon or the other existing players feel, truly feel, about hyped up recruits joining the team? Probably different for each guy, but I have zero insight into this.
  8. QB Matthew Tago [Oregon State - Signed LOI]

    Real question, but first, I fully concur with what you said earlier. Seems a very poor choice on Tago's part. Now the question. When you use voice to text, if you yell, does it use caps?
  9. LB Javontae Jean-Baptiste [Ohio State - Signed LOI]

    Wait, now New Mexico is in the mix? This kid is really confused I think.
  10. Wilbon Among 'Most Elusive" Returning B1G Backs

    Elusive.......as in we never know when we'll see him on the field from week to week? I guess that was last year.
  11. Lindsey and Owen Hospitalized

    Constant pushups, mountain climbers, burpees, more pushups, more mountain climbers, more burpees...then a few sprints...then repeat.
  12. Better to address it now and let it heal for the fall. I hate when this happens, but especially right before the season starts.
  13. Good luck and great success to you Mr Darlington!
  14. Lindsey and Owen Hospitalized

    Back in high school a couple of us got rhabdo. Kidneys totally broke down, so we donated the damn things and just got rid of them. Was back at practice two days later. (totally made up old guy story, like walking 10 miles to school through 4 ft of snow....it was only six miles) Seriously, I'd hope this is a case of a couple of guys that are both hyper-motivated to impress and perhaps a bit out of shape from the post-Iowa game layoff. Deserves a decent amount of attention in practice for sure.
