  1. Nebraska now has several "consultants" out there. Kenny Wilhite, James Rodgers and now Scott Booker. All of these guys are heavy recruiters, and that is their main goal on this team. The titles are there for window dressing.
  2. Nebraska Pro Day - March 14th

    Jammal Lord says "Hi!"
  3. Coaches Salaries

    The $58,500 is about $150,000 in today's money. Still way under paid given the market conditions today.
  4. The idea that Frazier was not a top recruit is garbage. He was by all means the best QB recruit in the country. Frazier was special. He was named to the Parade magazine and USA Today All-America teams and attracted recruiting attention from schools across the country. “He probably had 20 or 30 schools he could have gone to,” said Osborne. http://nebraska.247sports.com/Article/How-It-Was-Recruiting-Tales-64160 Same with Crouch. Crouch and Bobby Newcombe were two of the top Dual threat QBs in the nation that year.
  5. 2016 Blowouts - Talent or Coaching?

    Wasn't the team already down like 31 - 3 with wheels coming off in all directions when Tommy got hurt? No actually they were driving to bring it within striking distance. After Tommy got hurt around tOSU 20 yard line. We were stopped on a 4th down, and tOSU drove the field and went up another TD. It was a 14 point swing in about 2 minutes of gametime. It was a crusher in multiple ways. Then halftime, and tOSU had the ball to start at halftime and the rest is history. No. They were already down four touchdowns. Tommy stays healthy and the game is perhaps 55 - 10. 48 - 17 at best. The ass-kicking was well in progress. We were in a similar "striking distance" scenario against Iowa, and the odds against Ohio State were worse. Nebraska had little margin of error to begin with, and went downhill quick. Also, Ohio State was having a perfect storm of a game, coming off a wake-up call and a loss and totally dialed in at every level. Not true. They were driving to potentially make it 24-10, and have some momentum. Would they have won the game with Tommy, no. But they wouldn't have lost by 60 points. That was a back breaker of all back breakers. To be driving to potentially bring the game within reach, to losing your starting QB and leader, to not making a 4th and short, to tOSU driving and scoring just before half. It was about 5 minutes of game time that broke their will.

  7. FYI - on oversigning The B1G has strict rules against it. No more than +3 in any given class. And I also believe that scholarships are only binding for 1 year, and then renewed every year. I believe there was to be a rule change to make them binding for 4 years, but I don't believe that passed.
  8. Huskers Announce Donte Williams Hire

    So, does this mean it is official, or do we have to wait for Arizona to grant him release? ;-)
  9. shuffling of duties? If D. Williams comes on as Passing Game defensive coordinator. One could reason there would be a Running Game Defensive coordinator. (Banker) Or Stewart leaves? Or Stewart becomes Co Defensive coordinator with Banker? Or Banker leaves and Stewart/Williams become Co defensive coordinator. (least likely)

  11. The Next Two Years

    According to 247 composite: 2012: 8 elite players. 3 contributed this year. (TA, MRI, Westercamp) 2013: 7 elite players. 3 contributed this year. (T Newby, M Newby, Banderas) 2014: 2 elite players. 2 contributed this year (Nick Gates, Farmer) 2015: 4 elite players. 2 contributed this year on ST. (Eric Lee, Avery Anderson) 2016: 5 elite players. all 5 redshirted. 2017: 3 elite players so far. I'm guessing 1-2 will probably contribute next year. It isn't as bad as you sound comparatively speaking, but we need consistently 5-10 "elite" players contributing every year.
  12. Riley eyeing Donte Williams

    It might be that this has already happened, or happening.
  13. *Redux CFP analysis and prediction*

    Who would have thought at the beginning of the year that Washington State, and Colorado have a legitimate chance to play for the Pac-12 Championship this year. If you say yes, you are lying. ;-)
  14. Big10 Race and a little CFP tidbit.

    Pepperidge farm remembers 2001 Not sure why you feel this way? As a CFB fan, speculation as to what may or could happen, is part of that. IMO. Michigan wins over OSU and the conversation is done right? Nope, If Michigan wins over OSU, OSU is out of the conversation, but it's not the end of what will happen with Michigan. If they then lose to Wisconsin or us in the B1G, they would be out as well, right? So does Wisconsin get in? If we were to win, we are no way getting into the CFP but Wisconsin has a chance yet. Darn it, guess I am a hypocrite for being a fan. Have to love all the varibles? 2001 ring a bell. We lucked out and got in to the BCS championship without even playing in the Big 12 conference championship. 1999 could be argued the other way. Needless to say we have been on both sides of the coin, and have been on the receiving end of some very helpful chips falling our way.
  15. Big10 Race and a little CFP tidbit.

    Nebraska fans arguing the merit of a team not winning the conference championship game (or even a participant) in the playoff/National Championship is a little hypocritical. Just saying.
