  1. one potential downside is less recovery time for any unfortunate injuries before fall camp begins............
  2. 2017-2018 Season Notes

  3. Another aspect that '99 season that I don’t think has been mentioned. If I recall correctly, during the ’99 season Nebraska was actually in line to be IN the Natty game. However, the almighty SEC (via it’s commissioner) lobbied for a in-season change in criteria. It had to do with the down- ballot formula that added or subtracted for records of teams you had played, who THEY had played and involved some above/below .500 records and how that influenced things. Again, I can’t be certain of exact statistics, but I believe it involved (maybe) Vandy and some of it’s schedule detailed out to the Nth degree. Because there was this rising tide of national sentiment for Florida State to match up with Mick Vick, subtle adjustment criteria influenced this change which moved the Huskers OUT in midseason formulations and allowed the FSU/Va Tech. matchup. Since the rest of the nation was interested in this matchup, there was very little press outrage about this manipulation. This was the season of the notorious “officiating” in Austin where Texas eked out a suspicious victory ( Mike Brown was openly HELD on their winning TD….just a few yards in front of my seats),; and (according to rumor), that set of officials was barred for the remainder of the season. No proof of that, just a lot of rumors following. In the Big 12 Championship game, the Huskers totally throttled Texas, avenging it’s only loss. Not saying the Huskers would have necessarily won this Natty matchup.but the opportunity was nefariously snatched away.

    Wow. Nice on double-down on fake news. I understand the parameters of this board seek to keep the discussions tolerant, cohesive and coherent, so I'll respond just one last time. If you really understood the situation, you would never insinuate that T.O. could be "badgered" into anything like handing his legacy over to anyone he didn't want to hand it to. Also, if you really knew Frank and his family, you would never accuse his wife of being the whining type. Actually, T.O. did Frank a bit of disservice by strongly suggesting he keep the current assistants, thus putting Frank in the untenable situation of going from a member of a peer group to a leader of former peers. Not to mention that age, some physical disabilities on the staff, and some envy contributed to a very fragile and limited recruiting team that saw Frank having to shoulder much more of the recruiting burden than normally necessary. I believe that is a much more accurate description of the narrative. But, it's Christmas and the great thing about this country is that we can feel free to disagree. Happy Holidays!

    Did you ever meet Solich? Did you ever hear about how he ran his practices and the lack of respect the players had for him? I knew people who played for Osborne and Solich and heard all the stories. Solich was not the caliber of coach or person to be head coach at Nebraska. He got the job because he whined about how he was owed it and Osborne got tired of his incessant whining and finally promised it to him. After the 97 season, Osborne continued to have reservations about whether turning things over to Solich was the right move. So Solich sent his wife to guilt trip Osborne about how he couldn’t go back on his promise. Not just "met him".........know him well. 1000% total revisionist history !! Ask Benning about how much respect he STILL has for Coach Solich.
  6. Can't allow Tx SA to become this years Incarnant Word..............
  7. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    No because Frost's skillset was more suited to running.... he threw like the shot putter he was...accurate, but awkward.
  8. Craig Bohl

    More rumors about Leach resurfacing. ..
  9. A quote from future, former head coach

    Clearly in some form of reality-denying bubble. Watch the tape Mike!
  10. Typical, plodding hesitant offense.....little movement or passion..
  11. Riley "Never Considered" Making A Change At QB

    Does anyone believe that if a running back had 9 fumbles, 4 of which were returned for TD's, he would see the field again before a secondary back was tried?
  12. How does this team improve in 2018?

    To be honest, the current baseball squad is not an outlier. Not just in terms of baseball, but with respect to most all of the other major sports at Donu. The sad, desultory whimpering finishes are reflective of the end-of-season performances lately of football, basketball, and wrestling as well as baseball. I remain a strong supporter of all the teams and coaches, but wish there was some obvious beacon of change on the horizon to give future hope to all. Unfortunately, no such easy magic solution appears to be imminent.
  13. 2017 B1G Tournament

    Although not nearly the cachet of football, is it a bit surprising that 6 of the 8 teams that made the tourney are from the West...........and there is no snipping about the relative unbalance of the conference?
  14. Next Year Starting Five Predictions

    No one seems to have much faith in Akenten.............surprising. Yes, he will be a frosh, but I suspect he will have a much larger impact and playing time than most are projecting. We shall see..............
