  1. Fisher on Coaching DBs

    The days of seeing soft DB's is over. They'll lay the wood or ride the pine. No more 12 yard cushion when a team needs 6 for a 1st.........When teams realize that they will actually get punched in the mouth when they play us it will surprise them.
  2. ** 2018 Opponent Previews: Wisconsin (Game 6) **

    No doubt. What a novel idea. Try to get a lot of guys game experience so a 3 yr starter isnt replaced with a guy who never took a snap in a game....SMH, the previous staff......
  3. New staff, new system, new faces, brutal schedule.......With all this in mind, Frost and Co don't get a pass (even though the deck is stacked against quick success) and don't want one IMHO. This staff is here to win and win much sooner than even a little later. We have the talent. We've been devoid of competent coaching. A staff and team with a clear plan, vision and system (check), a unified vision (check), a solid work ethic (check), a never quit mentality (work in progress) will surprise some people in year one. There are going to be some bumps in the road. I just don't picture the car going into the ditch like it has the past few years.... Like Chinander said about the D, if he doesn't see you around the ball in practice and in games, you'll be seeing the game beside him or gone....The comments about Jackson.....The recruiting of the Juco's.....This staff isn't here for a great retirement package and "one last hurrah"...... I'm not expecting to win the conference year one or even win the west. I'm sure as hell not expecting to be 5th either. 8-4, 7-5 with all the issues mentioned above is do able and would be a great improvement from last season. I think we surprise some team. IMHO, not OSU, but Michigan or Wisky. I'd love to beat Wisky right out the gate. Beat em like old NU. Physicality on both sides of the ball. No more pretender, just a genuine contender. Set the tone early.... I can't wait for this season to get started!
  4. Get with The Program

    Losing Marvin and Carl hurt as well IMHO.
  5. Chinander on His Defense

    The consistent message is this. It's not coach speak. Get with the program or get gone. I love it. No more BS. Just honest and at times brutal truth.
  6. best QB to ever run the option at NU

    IMHO, many people quickly think of Tommie. Being the GOAT and having 2 national championships doesn’t hurt, would lend itself to this conclusion. I like Turner. He was a magician with the ball. Great timing, fakes, ball control etc...He was also over shadowed by sharing the backfield with Rozier and Craig, not to mention Fryar. Turner was the maestro of that symphony. Had he won a natty or 3, he’d be remembered a little differently IMHO. Truly a tough call as all we’re phenomenal. With a break here or there, they could all be considered the “best”,
  7. Willie Hampton

    Pure speculation on my part, but I think we will no longer be able to complain square peg in a round hole with this staff. IMHO, Frost and Co have a clear cut vision they are sharing with the players. The reality might be the brutal honesty of you not fitting our vision..... Best of luck to him in his future endeavors. Glad he gave the Huskers a shot.
  8. Solich - couple questions

    IMHO, had TO stayed on, we'd have another NC or 2 at a minimum. He was that good and so was the talent.
  9. Huskers After Graduate Transfer Cornerback

    Shaquem Griffin says hello!
  10. Solich - couple questions

    I believe that this was in TO's book. He had mentioned turing over the reins to the team in 96, but asked Frank if he could stay one more year. Won in 1997 and didnt thing it was "right" to go back on his word. Frank had issues like all people do. His biggest problem was coming in right behind a guy who had the best run ever in college football......A hard act for anyone to follow. Carl Crawford playing baseball didn't help IMHO either. I'll admit. I wanted Frank or his staff fired after the 7-7 season. He fired some staff and came back very well the next season. And still got fired. I think that was BS. He made adjustments and deserved more time. With that being said, I'd like Frank to come back on campus. Get the recognition he deserves. From playing for NU, coaching for several NC teams and then HC. He earned it.
  11. Andrew Ward Leaving the Huskers

    I truly prefer Frost's honest approach with the kids(not saying that made them leave), but giving them a no sh!t sitrep of where they fit in or don't. The guy who doesn't work in this system might go on and excel in another. The team is better when it has all the guys pulling the same way, buying in, fit the system and have an opportunity to contribute in some way. A guy who sees where he fits, what's expected and how he can contribute tends to practice/play better IMGO. Regardless of the reasons, I wish nothing, but the best for the kids moving forward.
  12. I like it. Healing is good. That decision split the fan base pretty good IMHO.
  13. Here is Gabrielle Union talking about her beloved Cornhuskers on Late Night with James Corden. Great shout outs. http://journalstar.com/entertainment/misc/video-on-late-night-tv-gabrielle-union-talks-about-how/youtube_d99414a8-fe72-56c1-a019-5621504024df.html
  14. Winning changes everything. One thing Cally gave us was great quotes. Restore the order!
  15. Frost on the Blackshirts

    I can see that point. Lavonte David comes to mind. IIRC, after Ohio St Bo made the commnet he "did alright, but doesn't know the system" or something to that effect. He played with a reckless abandon that was amazing. Bottom line, Frost and Co have done nothing yet that makes me say, "hmmmmm." I am sure whatever he does will be for the better of the program. Feels good to have confidence in a staff.
