  1. Post Practice Presser - August 5

    Unless your defense is terrible this is usually the caseYou're a ray of sunshine
  2. Chris Jones out 4-6 months

    This. Makes me wonder if there was a little more damage in the knee. Had meniscus surgery in the spring after my freshman year in college and was back to full football activities and lifting in a month. All depends on where in the meniscus, type of tear and how big it was. But this had to be a good sized tear though.
  3. 2018 Offensive Line Recruiting

    Please elaborate on this. Farniok, Jaimes were two solid OTs that Cav did a good job with, pretty sure Farniok even cited his relationship with Cav as the X factor. I also think Wilson is a good example of talent evaluation, I think it's pretty clear he deserved a higher rating and we did a good job of identifying him. And yeah keeping Raridon was an easy job but still not a gimme. All I'm saying is O-line is arguably the toughest to evaluate and recruit, I think Cav has done a decent job identifying some underrated talent (Wilson and Jaimes). I'm not sold on how well he will be able to develop them but I think we have better pieces here than when he got here. So you are impressed by 3 guys out of 4 classes? Raridon was a gimme: "So you commit, then the coaching staff got fired. What was going through your mind when that happened?" "It didnt really bother me, to be honest. I had a feeling that could happen either before I got there or soon after I get there, so I tried to make my decision based on other aspects of the school and not the coaching staff." I was asked to elaborate on why I think Cav is a decent recruiter. I listed 3 players where I thought he did a solid job. Does that mean I think he is the greatest OL coach in college football? No, it just means that IMO he isn't near as bad as everyone here is making him out to be. Like I also stated above, it'll all depend on how he develops the talent he has acquired. Put down the pitch forks and give the man a chance to do his job. Riley has shown that he is willing to make changes when someone isn't getting the job done and that hasn't happened yet.

    Would rather have a lower rated 6'7 OT prospect with good athleticism than the higher rated 6'4 OT prospect that will just end up being a guard or center. Also for those that are complaining about not going after the highest rated prospects, last year we spent significant time going after Sarell and Filiaga and missed out and the board was complaining we didn't have any back ups. Cav has been an above average recruiter, just have to wait and see if he can develop them.
  6. LB Greg Simmons Has Left the Team

    Thought he looked a little big at the spring game. That plus Roberts jumping ahead of him probably was the final straw. Best of luck to the kid.
  7. Can't remember where I heard it but I thought I heard we might try and take this guy as our "QB" in the class as a walk on. Would be pretty happy if that was the case.
  8. Most improved Husker: Who steps up this season?

    Tre Bryant. Think he will take over that all purpose back role for this offense.

  11. SIGNED - CB Elijah Blades

    If you're basing this info on the interview on 1620 this afternoon then I'd say you may have misinterpreted what Clouse was saying. What I got from that was Clouse said Blades was not here yet and has some online classes to finish up, which Clouse said he expected to get done. However, he did say that perhaps the reason we are staying in contact with a lot of 2018 DBs may be due to wanting to have a replacement ready if Blades doesn't make it.
  12. Fightin' Erstads at the Corvallis Regional

    Personally would start Burkamper against Holy Cross tomorrow, he's been stronger at the end of the season and Hohensee has been off his last couple starts. Then hope Hohensee has his stuff for the rematch against Yale.
  13. DE Tate Wildeman [Nebraska Commit]

    Just got around to watching his tape. Think he is greatly undervalued. He shows great technique and hand use for a high schooler and demonstrated a couple different pass rush moves. Think he will be a solid player for us.
  14. Main thing that is not stated is the required donation per seat. That can bump the price up quite a bit
  15. Fightin' Erstads at the Big Ten Tournament

    I think the turning point of the day was the 3rd inning against Iowa. We had 1st and 3rd, 0 outs followed by schrieber K, Miller K and Alvarado fly out. Iowa turns around and gets a lead off home run in the bottom of the inning. If we could've just gotten 1 run on the board and taken the lead early I think that game plays out much differently.
