  1. QB Adrian Martinez [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

    So do we call him A-mart? A-Magic? Martinez 2.0? Definately got flashbacks watching his film. He definately has the speed and running style down. Though he's got to work on falling backwards as he throws.
  2. Playoffs robbed BIG West

    Like I said, when does a team like Wisconsin or Auburn start forfeiting conference championship games to ensure a spot in the Playoffs. Right now, there is nothing to gain and everything to lose.
  3. Playoffs robbed BIG West

    Yeah, I'm kind of pooling multiple entities into a "them," - Nebraska has certainly not held it's own recently, but my perception has been Nebraska has always had to earn every inch of what we got on the field, in spite of outside forces rooting against, officiating against, or in the case of the Big 12, conspiring against NU, I admit this at the risk of sounding like I'm currently wearing a tinfoil hat haha. Nebraska, has rarely, if ever, gotten the "benefit of the doubt," as far as I recollect. That always seems to go to the media darlings. Still can't believe how teams that play against Nebraska nearly never get called for holding when we play them. - But that's another issue, and my bias is likely showing haha.
  4. Playoffs robbed BIG West

    Plenty of examples- Nebraska has no chance, they don't play on grass. Frost would never choose Nebraska over Florida, Tennessee, Oregon, etc. Phantom penalties that gave Miami the natty in '93. Penn St.'s out of bounce catch. Nebraska & Michigan split title in 1997- anyone who follows college football at all knows we'd have stomped Mich., +1 second so Texas can kick a field goal, A&M miraculously has 2 penalties to our 20 (slight exaggeration), Partial qualifiers, BIG12 11-1 votes, etc. As much as everyone loves to say they want to see Nebraska "back," when we were at the top of the heap, we had 0 margin of error, and rarely got the benefit of the doubt. While I wholeheartedly agree with this, if there is going to be one team that gets the benefit of the doubt, I'd prefer it to be us, especially if, like Wisconsin, we actually have the stronger resume.

    I hope you're right, but history shows, if CFP has any opportunity to discount, or discredit Nebraska, they will, and have. What's more, we have no control over how good the crossover teams are when we play them. Remember when we beat Ohio St. and they had a 6-6 season? Same is true about our OOC scheduling. We beat Oregon last year, then, look at the season they had. If we went 12-1 in either of those two years, in the same fashion as Wisconsin, would we have been passed up? I think so.
  6. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    LOLZ, please don't suggest such things. I follow the recruiting forum quite a bit. I never expected Bookie to sign, though his comments about playing with his cousin, etc. had me hopeful. Frost is a game changer though. Probably more wishful thinking on my part, but as I said, my interpretation of Bookie's comments leave me feeling as though our chances went up considerably.
  7. Playoffs robbed BIG West

    Mods you may see fit to move this thread, though, it certainly pertains to Nebraska's chances of qualifying for the CFP in the future. The media boiled the selection down to Ohio St. vs. Alabama- to me that's plain bs. Wisconsin got robbbed. Ohio St. had 2 losses, one being a blowout to a 7-5 team. Though, the strength of their wins are pretty impressive, 2 losses, you're out, even if you win the Conf. - see Penn St. last year. Alabama VS Wisconsin. Wisconsin's record- 12-1 Total record of all Wisconsin's opponents - 81-78 Best win- vs Final ranked #21 NW - 9-3 Other "good wins"- FAU - 10-3 (CUSA Champs) Mich - 8-4, Iowa 7-5, Purdue 6-6, Disqualifier - Lost Last Game (conf. championship) Loss - #5 Ohio St. by 6 PTS Won- conference division Alabama's record- 11-1 Total Record of all Alabama's opponents - 80-65 Best win- vs Final ranked #17 LSU - 9-3 Other "good wins" - # 23 MSST - 8-4, TA&M- 7-5, FSU & Ole MISS- 6-6 Disqualifier Lost Last Game (non-championship) Loss - #7 Auburn by 12 PTS Won.- nothing Wisconsin won 1 more game, won their division, and lost to a better opponent by a lesser amount, in a conference championship game. In my opinion, Wisconsin, not Ohio St or Alabama, should've gotten the 4th spot. Is this because, like Nebraska, Wisconsin plays in the BIG West? If Nebraska was slighted like this, I think we'd all be furious. Maybe Wisconsin just didn't win pretty enough, something Nebraska also used to be criticized for. Do we have to worry about this should we ever have an undefeated season? At what point do teams forfeit a conference championship game, so they can get included in the CFP?

    Haha.... my job is to figure out what makes people tick.
  9. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    Sure is a stretch, but language means something. Think about it, if you're living in Des Moines, and hear a buddy is moving back to your home town in Nebraska, you'd never say, welcome home, cuz you're not their to "welcome," them. I admit I'm probably letting my personal viewpoints on who gets the esteemed title of "coach," add weight that maybe others don't agree with, but... like I said, this is just my take, and I'm probably wrong. Time will tell.

  11. CB Brendan Radley-Hiles [Oklahoma Commit]

    Been torn on what to make of Bookie's comments. My take? "What's up coach?' - Being a former athlete, you don't refer to just anyone as "coach." That informal language is generally reserved for the person you consider your personal coach. "Welcome home." - You don't welcome someone to a place you aren't already at. "Congrats on going home," or some other vernacular on par with that would be the language used to congratulate someone on going someplace you aren't. My take- for Bookie, Nebraska feels like home, he's bought in to Frost being his coach, and he's just waiting for confirmation to make it official again.
  12. Quarterback

    So, from what I gather, current QB's are expected to Lee: Go Pro; Grad Transfer O'brien: Maybe stick around through springball then bolt if not starter Gebbia: Stick around Most feel since these three are mostly pocket passers, they may not be interested in the new offense. We do still have a top 15, 4 star, dual threat QB on the team currently working at WR and holder. Any chance Darlington makes the move back to QB? If so, is he still good enough to compete for the starting job?
  13. Iowa game refs

    Ok, we suck, but wow these refs couldn't be calling a worse game. No call false start on Iowa first td, two bad call no PI, one picked up, ticky tack false start on Neb. On 4th down on 3rd quarter drive. Refs got money on the squaks? Jesus.
  14. Imagination

    Well on the plus side, 10 games a season, if I squint, tilt my head to the right and drink enough, I can pretend Alverez is our A.D., and we are regularly dominating Iowa and contending for BIG10 titles and top 10 finishes annually. Alcohol and imagination= a powerful combination.
  15. Turn Around - How long?

    I dont think so, I think what we see is very similar to when Bo took over. We have talent. We have loads of talent, more than enough to win the BIG west. I wouldn't be suprised if Scott, or I mean, the right coach, wins the west in year 1, with a 9-3 or 10-4 type record. After that its just figuring out what the coach's ceiling is.
