  1. Frost’s QB Room

    Clowns, okay? I despise them...
  2. 2018 Alternate Uniforms Thread

    Those were cool. I like our practice jerseys. I'd love to see the N go on the side of the shoulders/arms again rather than stripes. If you're gonna ditch striped pants make the Jersey look 80's style too. As long as they don't touch the helmet but it seems the helmets are no longer cream but white. Maybe it's just me? I'd love to see an 80s retro throwback though. Like the uniforms we had with the triplets.

    Since we're ditching the striped pants, can we wear all white on the road with white tall socks in honor of Texas?
  4. Frost’s QB Room

    The speculation is getting ridiculous and all the non-answers the media receives it's like they're dry heaving in the desert dying of thirst. They get very little access and everything is an assumption based off 30 minutes of access. I'm not campaigning for the media here. We just don't have enough information to go off of on who is going to be the starter so all the he said she said crap is a nothing burger to me. Until the Akron game and whoever lines up in shotgun that's when we'll know who their guy is. I'd prefer it not become a circus but this is a fish bowl after all.
  5. Post-Practice Presser - August 17

    My thinking is the wrong Martinez arrived at the wrong time. The right one is here now to win us a championship lol.
  6. Post-Practice Presser - August 17

    Yeah, we're not Alabama or Ohio State. We don't have the depth but give it 3-4 years. Bo Pelini substituted guys in and out on defense all the time like they were hockey players and some times it really backfired. 2009 and 2010 it worked to our advantage.
  7. I think Bell will split carries with Washington. They have that 3rd gear we've been lacking since IMO, Roy Helu. I know, I know but Ameer Abdullah would run out of gas. He was an intermediate kind of runner who could get 10-25 yards a pop. I think in 2013 and 2014 his longest rushes were in the low to mid 40 yards. Ozigbo clearly does not possess the speed threat Frost is looking for and guys like Bell and Washington naturally have that. I think Bryant is still sore with the knee and won't be ready to play right away. While I think Ozigbo will get playing time this year, I just don't know if it'll be at the beginning of a game or whenever it's on the line.
  8. Biggest Concerns?

    Now I'm even more concerned at the lack of depth on our OL. We're lucky to have 4 tackles altogether in rotation. With our schedule, it'll be tough to make it through Oct/Nov. I'm hoping Duval is the real deal and we see less injuries or no major injuries for that matter. When you're thin in some areas, S&C has an even bigger role. I'd like to see less injuries this fall. The Riley era was plagued by it I think in large part to what they were doing in S&C/Nutrition. We've got all the resources at our disposal and I'm glad coach Frost sees that and is now taking advantage of it.
  9. The Running Back Room

    Goodie. We won't have to watch him tap his helmet to be subbed out after a 10 yard gain anymore. Man, our team last year was so out of shape it's unbelievable. I for one just think Ozigbo lacks that 3rd gear that guys like Bell, Washington, and Bryant have.

    If Riley were retained, yep. There would be little enthusiasm this year which would lead to the end of the sellout streak. The one thing Eichorst and Riley didn't destroy. But I think at times last year it was even in serious jeopardy. I've never seen more fans leaving games early than last season. It was, in my opinion, worse than the Callahan era.
  11. Biggest Concerns?

    That mega thread was a lot fun reading up until the Jessica crap.
  12. Way Too Early 2018 Depth Chart

    Lol. If he's a vocal guy, I'm all for it. I want vocal leaders that back up their talk. I want an Alvin Mack on our damn team!!! Speaking of Ozigbo, he's gained an extra step but he's still 2 or 3 steps slower than the guys ahead of him.
  13. Drought as Favorite

    Let's keep talking numbers. Bob Devaney's first year was 1962. The year the sellout streak started. Scott Frost makes his coaching debut on the 362nd sellout

    Also, Riley was too nice for Nebraska fans to get pissed off at him. Said no one ever.
  15. Lol, I'm sorry but your entire post alludes to a defense of Mike Riley... If Gebbia doesn't work out, I don't think it's going to take Scott Frost 5-7 or 6-6 his first season to figure that out. Personally, I'm pulling for Gebbia. He reminds me a little bit of Joe Ganz who also showed leadership on the field and was a film junkie. I am hoping that translates to on field success for Gebbia but sometimes things don't work out. There's no way to know but to try. All I'm saying is Frost is not going to stick to his guns if the **** hits the fan. We're not rebuilding but rebranding. Certain guys he recruits are probably going to fit his system better than a Riley recruit. It happens with a new coach anywhere you go. Bo Pelini proved that by getting guys like Taylor Martinez, Lavonte David, Dejon Gomes, Larry Asante, Eric Hagg, etc. He had to get guys that fit his system. There were Callahan players left over that just didn't fit or pan out in Pelini's system. The same can be said for Callahan where Solich players didn't work out in the WCO. This year, we're going to see a lot of new faces on both sides of the ball and special teams. I think HCSF knows his program can't literally stomach another .500 year or worse.
