  1. I can't find the link, but I I saw an interview with Herman where he stated how much he misunderstood the importance of culture when he took over at Texas. He said the team was loaded with 4* and 5* players who expected everything to be easy and expected to be starters. He went on to say that was the number one thing to correct going into year 2. I think that explains alot about hoe Nebraska can beat teams in recruiting hot beds. By recruiting kids with hart and talent, we can beat teams with superior talent.
  2. Odds to Win the B1G

    i believe the Huskers will be the most improved team in all of football next year. That probably will not be enough to win the division, but we will win more than six games, and we will look much better than last year. Just getting the prius out of the parking lot is a step in the right direction.
  3. Most Dominant Quarter in MNC Game

    Looking back on that sequence, I am sooooooo happy that we didn't get the safety call on the first play. Can you imagine the announcers and the media harping on a "bad" call that broke Florida's momentum and forced them into a couple errors that ultimately cost them the game? By denying us the safety, we had the opportunity to blast Florida and make it clear that they (or any SEC team) did not belong on the same field with Nebraska (see Tennessee in 1997).
  4. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    I want some blowouts early so we can get a couple of QBs with a significant amount of playing time. We need a backup with game experience in case of injury. Also, some players do better in practice, some do better in games. It may take in game action to determine who the best QB is.
  5. ** 2018 Opponent Previews: Wisconsin (Game 6) **

    Wisconsin does not worry me. Frost will exploit their defense, maybe not in year 1, but after that the Huskers will not have a problem scoring. I also think the attacking defense will give Wisconsin problems. Wisky will not be able to run the ball all game anymore. They must try for the big play against an over aggressive defense. I give us a 50% chance of beating them this year. I also think there is less than a 10% chance of the Huskers losing to the badgers in 2018 and 2019.
  6. Most Dominant Quarter in MNC Game

    What was the most dominant quarter in a MNC game, including those not including the Huskers? I am torn between the 1995 Fiesta bowl and the 1994 Orange bowl. While the Huskers scored a record 29 points in the 2nd quarter against the Gators, the complete domination of Miami in the 4th quarter a year earlier may have been more impressive. Miami had 35 plays for minus 16 yards and no first downs in the 4th quarter.
  7. How Do You Spell Expectations in Nebraska?

    My expectations are higher than the predicted 5-6 winds because of the new staff. MR and staff were inept. Two things that amaze me are: MR didn't even use all 85 scholarships. Frost used more than 85, and counted on attrition to make the limit. Frost continued to add players at key positions after signing day, and may not be done adding players yet. MR waited until year 3 to get a pro style QB. Frost's first recruit was a QB for his system. Frost and staff have to be worth at least three additional wins even with a tough schedule.
  8. But it does mean that he's much better than 7th best in the BIG. If you needed to hire a P5 coach, and you could have any BIG coach except Urban, who would you pick? Would Frost be your sixth choice?
  9. Tre Bryant back?

    With more depth this year, and the way Frost likes to spread the ball around, Tre should be able to contribute without have to carry a heavy load. Hopefully he can stay healthy.
  10. Cameron Jefferies

    Tanner Lee's stats at Tulane were no good. Jefferies did well at BG. Tanner Lee was practically guaranteed the starting QB job. Jefferies will sit if he is not worthy. If we get him, it is a major plus to get two CB in a single week in the the middle of June.
  11. ** 2018 Previews: Athlon Sports Big Ten Predictions**

    Prognosticators look at losses from the previous year. We lost a QB that was drafted. Prognosticators view this as negative. I view it as a positive. We lose 16 turnovers and we gain a QB that can run. Even with a QB that has never player CFB, we will be significantly better at QB this year. Throw in a defense (did we have a defense last year), and we will finish better than 5th. With the way this staff is adding late transfers, we may win the west.
  12. Someone Hired Shawn Eichorst

    The Longhorns's are doomed.
  13. Our Finish in Big10 West

    The disadvantage for the Huskers is that many defensive players learned from both Banker and Diaco. It will take a lot of work to make them forget the things they have been taught.
  14. Defensive Backfield Looking better

    Of course not, but coaches are also usually careful about over hyping. There are plenty of question marks, but at least this staff is addressing weak roster areas in every way possible. Much better than a staff that under signs, then spends the off season riding bicycles in the park.
  15. We just landed a Juco that can play immediately, and his coach says he is "great". Will Jackson Recruiting never ends. I like this staff.
