  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. ***Official Minnesota Game Discussion Thread***

    Jesus, good thing Lee has a quick release. Our 6 olinemen cant stop their 4 rushers from hitting lee for more than 2 seconds.

    You really don't want one. Go enjoy the wedding, Nebraska isn't playing today.
  5. ***Official Northwestern Game Discussion Thread***

    Am I the only one who sees holding all the time against the husker d? On their first 3rd down conversion the olineman was hugging our rush end with a hand on both the front and back numbers. Textbook holding, but no call. This happens lile every single game!
  6. Need some help here...

    Hey Cy, Love the post, as a born and bred Husker fan, I never gave two sh*ts about the Hawkeyes till I want to college there in the summer of '03. Callahan years were god awful. And within 2 weeks of football started, the Squakeyes had me rooting for them to loose every game. IMO its good you get some practice in gloating in this year, so next year when ISU beats the Hawkeyes, you can really rub it in. Until then, all they respond with is "scoreboard," or "good thing you're in the Big 12, cuz you would be 0-20 if you played the Big 10, that's right you'd lose every game twice." They don't even have a proper team name. They are hawkeyes, not hawks. Their mascot is only one part of a dumb bird.
  7. Gun powder needs a spark

    Well, I've been mostly quiet on Nebraska football this year, but anyone who had any doubts about our coaching situation just needs to look at what perennial Big 12 bottom feeder Iowa State is doing. 2nd year head coach, two wins over top five teams THIS MONTH, top 25 ranking, 6-2 record and sitting at Number 1 in their conference. That is the power of having the right coach. The head coach is the spark to the players gun powder, and I think Riley is out of flint or electrical current. Given his age, probably flint. This is exactly why another coach, preferably, Scott Frost should be leading the Huskers next year.
  8. Credit where credits due

    I want to know why this game played out dang near the same as last week. Opposing offense had their way with us the whole first half, then we held them scoresless in the second. Was true this week, nearly true last week barring the garbage td that let them back into the game...

    So we can't run in the 4th? Bryant out so we dont trust wilbon?
  10. Help with logistics for the game

    Hey all, in need of some help. The wife and I are going to the game today, my first in more than a decade, her first ever. She is currently breast feeding our 10 week old, and will likely have to pump during the game. Are there locations at the stadium to do that? What about the clear bag policy, the pumps don't come in clear bags? Any advice would be super helpful. Thanks all!
  11. Missed Opportunity

    I've been thinking about this since the new uniforms came out. It seems to me that the BIG missed out on an enormous opportunity to have Nebraska and Michigan play this year, the 20th anniversary of the 1997 National Championship teams. I would imagine that if the BIG has scheduled that game instead of Ohio State, and played into the narrative, it would have immediately been must see TV and drawn a great deal of attention to the league. I know, I know, today's teams are nothing like the '97 teams, and the game would prove nothing. But could you imagine seeing Nebraska vs. Michigan in those throwback jerseys? Would have been incredibly awesome. Anyway, missed opportunity in my view.
  12. Jordan Westerkamp NFL Journey

    While I wish he could make a roster somewhere, I'm not really surprised by this. How many times did we see him leave a game due to being dinged up?Less than the number of times we saw him completely sell his body out to make a catch. For every ten massive hits, usually resulting in a first down in a critical juncture of a game, he maybe left the game once or twice.This is a pretty weird complaint to make. He's not fragile. He's a team-first guy who will risk injury to accomplish team goals. Yep. Don't know how many times he got hung out to dry against Michigan State two years ago. Took three or four hits that I thought probably knocked him out of the game. Kept coming back. Yup How that hit wasn't targeting is beyond me- the dude launched himself into helmet to helmet contact. Just shows what a crappy penalty that is.
  13. Huskers in the 2017 NFL Draft

    Holy cow, maybe I should become an NFL scout haha... Let's hope Westy ends up there too. Rex Burkhead to sign with Patriots. http://nebraska.247sports.com/Bolt/Burkhead-signs-with-New-England-51773689
  14. Huskers in the 2017 NFL Draft

    What I don't understand with you guys, is pre-season we were treated to multiple articles like this, http://www.ketv.com/article/jordan-westerkamp-named-highest-graded-returning-wr-in-nation/7660563 And now because he got banged up enough to miss three games this season, suddenly he is injury prone and not worthy of being drafted? Incredible... The guy is hands down a stud, he'll be draftes lower than he should and have a heck of a career. Patriots would make hay with him all day ala Wes Welker. My hope is he ends up there and Rex Burkhead joins him off free agency. I'm not a Pats. Fan either, I just think its the best outcome for them both.
