  1. 2017-2018 Season Notes

    My guess is Miles is a Vikings fan because there were donuts made with Vikings colors and custom silkscreen or something. He made some comment about them @Vikings
  2. RB Maurice Washington

    I don’t know, that’s why I was asking. Never seen a visit take place at a restaurant before.
  3. RB Maurice Washington

    Is that a home or a lounge? He really has names of liquors painted on the wall?
  4. Frost, Harbaugh or Urban Meyer

    I can agree with that. I got what I wanted and I think I’m going to start enjoying watching Husker football again.
  5. Frost, Harbaugh or Urban Meyer

    Meyer is a great coach but I think he’s peaked as coach who does more with less and instead does less with more. Florida and OSU were programs waiting for success. Zook recruited Florida at a high level, ranking 20/2/7 (according to rivals). And if it weren’t for tattoo scandal, sweater vest may still be at OSU recruiting at just as high of a clip as Urban has. He’s won titles, but with other coaches players. Harbaugh is a gimmick. His shtick gets old and his personality wears on people, which unsurprisingly, I’ve heard goes back to his time at USD. Like many, I’ve been hoping for Frost to become the head coach since he got into coaching and I’m going to let my homerism shine. Frost all the way baby.
  6. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    Way over my head. My bad. Definitely not questioning their efforts, I don't think the juice was worth the squeeze and they saw that too. I don’t think it was only a Bookie decision to not re-pursue. Same with some of these other decommits.
  7. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    I kind of agree with you. I’m curious as to why they didn’t go after him. Or if Frost just wants a general rip the bandaid off and start fresh. I also wonder if and how much Matt Davison has an influence on player personnel during this transition.
  8. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    How hard did Frost and Co go after Bookie?
  9. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    He already declared for the draft
  10. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    I dunno. If both Benning and Rob Z are alluding that he lacked effort, technique, work ethic...there are reasons I listen to those guys and mostly because they have insight to the program and know what it takes to play D1 football at a high level. And fair or unfair, but for me, I really can’t get over his glossy-eyed, lack of emotion, mumbling before the Northwestern game. He’s not the only player just the one we’re discussing, but he checked out and I don’t care what point of the season you’re at, you treat every game and snap as if it’s your last. Can we say he gave that effort? With that said, good luck to him in the NFL because I think it’s a win win and I care more about the program.
  11. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    I think Benning pretty much said today that Gates didn’t like the idea of playing for free and if he was going to have to bust his tail, he might as well get paid doing it.
  12. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    My first memory of Gates is him cutting a MSU lineman down who was on his knees during that home upset in 2015, and either McDowell or Calhoun for Sparty got all pissed about that. My last memory of Gates is him yawning during the Husker prayer before the NW game.

      It will be fine. Defenses are more about situational sets than they are about the actual scheme. If you call off the lions to try to protect a lead when getting after it was how you got there...then that's on the coach's defensive playcalling. Not the scheme.

      I agree Coach. I think the USF and especially the Memphis game was more of an exception than the rule. And I’m sure there were distractions to help cause those high scoring affairs, on top of USF being a solid team and a rematch against another solid team in Memphis.


      Cdog, Id like to think there are athletes on Nebraska’s defensive side of the ball who just need to have a fire lit to make them shine. But agreed, Griffin is a beast.

      @Savage Husker Guy Thomas should be salivating watching this game. 

  15. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    Gates freshman year is certainly not Gates the last two years. Hope there is a revelation with the coaching change, if he stays. I think he should stay. If you have to, shuffle him back to right tackle and find someone who can lock down at left T. He was more aggressive and nasty as freshman. Would hope a final year with a new coach and philosophy could change how he leaves his mark.
