  1. So I'm guessing not many badger fans are freaking out over a 40ish ranked class. I'm usually embarrassed when Nebraska gets stomped by Wisconsin. Not because Wiscy is a team that consistently has lower recruiting rankings than us. Not because Wiscy is using the Nebraska formula successfully by pulling from a population base that is 3X ours. Those are somewhat explainable.
  2. JUCO WR Mike Williams [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    Very impressive since they usually start an athlete out at 50% of their 1 RM for metabolic circuit. We could have a 170 lb kid that can squat 800 lbs+!. 435lb 1 RM is considered elite for 170 lb man. This video raises a lot of red flags. What the h#!! Is Duval doing?
  3. I haven't looked into this but read somewhere that Wisconsin's rankings are usually lower then expected because their in state talent don't attend a lot of camps therefore their star ratings are low. They don't feel compelled to impress at camps to get offers from a lot of schools. They are going to Wisconsin.
  4. North, South Stadium Getting Escalators

    They should only install escalators that go up. Give the fans a psychological edge.
  5. Who's Worse: Riley VS Callahan

    I'm not sure the quote from Moos appeared in print. I believe I saw it in video when Moos was interviewed after Frost was introduced. Because of UCF players I immediately thought it could be something Frost wouldn't necessarily agree with. Long hair doesn't always mean a player has a "look at me!" attitude. Pat Tillman's coach wanted him to cut his hair. He told the coach that if he did then the girls would be all over him. He was going for the scruffy look to go along with (probably) a "don't look at me" attitude.
  6. Who's Worse: Riley VS Callahan

    He also commented about players with long hair are more about themselves and less about the team. I don't disagree with him. It will be interesting if we see a change but I don't think Frost considers it important. The destruction of property and littering is very disrespectful and should be stopped immediately.
  7. Matt Davison Now Associate AD for Football

    I like it. Sounds like the coaches are going to set the accountability dial to 10 and put the gas pedal to the floor. Some players are going to get ran over. Those who aren't are really going to enjoy their time at DONU.
  8. Matt Davison Now Associate AD for Football

    Probably not Pellini level tirades but still entertaining. Will Matt become more famous for making the catch or pestering Frost enough to return to DONU?
  9. O-line

    I wouldn't expect upper classmen that get a lot of playing time to have the same workout in season as their off season workout. I assumed in season workouts would be geared toward maintaining strength rather than increasing strength. Not lifting for 4 months is shocking to think how much strength they probably lost. Without being very disciplined with diet it's easy to put on fat since you're no longer burning off a lot of calories. I wonder if Riley also thought weight lifting made players slow which was a prevailing misconception back in his playing days. Do you have more information on Olympic type squats that they were doing? Google told me it's high bar squat and depth is lower which sounds different from what you alluded to.
  10. I don't think the players were particularly bothered by getting blown out either. I believe that attitude started before Riley arrived. So many things for Frost to fix but I believe he will. My expectations remain the same- be competitive in every game and play hard to the end. It's been too long since the team has meant those expectations.
  11. O-line

    So we've got players that haven't been working out properly in the weight room for the past 3 years. It's going to take at least a couple of years to recover from that. One off-season of workouts won't overcome not gaining strength for 3 years.

      He was asked to come on to give his point of view and opinions on the current college football playoff system.  I saw a clip where he called for the P5 conferences to be standardized and all play 9 conference games.  The SEC and ACC only play 8 conference games.

      Booger Macfarland is an idiot.  He said of course a UCF can beat Auburn when they have 30 days to prepare for them.  Well.... Booger.  Frost was trying to reel in a top 25 recruiting class for Nebraska while he was thinking about kicking Auburn tail.  Ridiculous.  They will never admit that it wasnt the lay-off, the lack of motivation, or the extra will to beat goliath.  UCF was better prepared, better coached, and executed the gameplan better.  Oh and BTW they are every bit as athletic as the vaunted AUB that beat Bama and UGA.  

      SEC man it is the only conference were you actually cant lose.  Makes me sick.

      Now that it is over, no need to watch anymore of this SEC circle jerk.
