  1. My issues with the offensive line

    I don't have any inside info and I'm just speculating. I don't think Gates necessarily dislikes Tanner Lee. I think he just doesn't have the motivation or desire to work hard. My guess is he is super confident in his abilities, like most D-I athletes are, and just thinks he's going to leave after this year and play in the NFL. Nebraska hasn't been good in his time there and he's ready to leave. Therefore, he's just going through the motions and that's why he plays poorly. Again, just speculation on my part.
  2. Why Are You a Husker Fan?

    My dad was born and raised in Omaha and graduated from Nebraska. I never lived in Nebraska but grew up in South Dakota, so I was still close. I'm a Nebraska fan because of my dad and because the Huskers were really good when I was a kid.

    Also, a waiting period was never discussed for the recently-filled job as AD. I'm not going to pretend I read every single piece of Nebraska news. But between the Lincoln Journal Star, the Omaha World Herald, the Rivals guys, the 247 guys, and everyone on this message board, I think someone would have mentioned a definitive waiting period if there was one.

    For the people asking for the legalize on hiring Scott Frost. Disclaimer: I'm not a lawyer and I've never lived in Nebraska. I'm almost positive Nebraska does not have a mandatory waiting period. Nebraska has changed head coaches three times since 2003. We'd remember if Nebraska had to wait X amount of days to officially hire someone. If I'm wrong and there is a waiting period, then it's only three or four days. Either way, it isn't going to be an issue in hiring a new head coach.

    I don't know man. I'd probably take three straight 10-3 seasons. A 10-3 season in the Big 10 west also means you're probably not finishing third in your division.

    Ultimately, I'd prefer to find out Frost is the new Nebraska coach on 11/25. However, it's been SOOOOO long since Nebraska won a conference title. A conference title by proxy* would be nice. Gives us two reasons to cheer. * - Yes, that was a joke.

    Haha. Fair enough. I'm glad you put in terms I could understand. Whenever I tell people my thing was a bearer bonds scheme gone wrong, it never has the same oomph.

    I wasn't here in 2014. I've seen sock mentioned numerous times. I don't need an oral history, but could I get a brief explanation of the sock thread of 2014?

    It's also worth noting that Nebraska had a huge team in terms of total numbers. There may have been 150 total players. Phillips was a returning starter in 1995. Frost was a scout team quarterback. It's possible they basically never talked prior to the incident.

    Maybe there weren't. I don't disagree with you. I'm just saying that in terms of shady things colleges can do to help them win, the idea of county scholarships doesn't seem to rank that high to me. At least in a state like Nebraska. In Texas, California or Florida? Yes, that would seem very advantageous.

    I don't know much about county scholarships. This is how it was explained to me, by someone who isn't a Nebraska fan. Nebraska had numerous kinds of academic scholarships. They had a specific kind that were dubbed county scholarships. They were called that because they went to the best walkon in-state football player in each county. Some say it's true, some it isn't. I don't really care. Even if it is true, I don't think it would have anything to do with Nebraska's struggles today.

    I hear ya, but that just means Lane Kiffin can go to Florida State. All Joey Freshwater needs to hear is that FSU used to be an all-girls school and he'll sign within minutes.

    I hope we get back to the days when more people hate Nebraska. That means Nebraska is really good. As a kid I didn't understand it. Now, I would gladly allow Nebraska to take the "villain" role that Alabama or Ohio State has now.

    Worth noting just because I've seen it mentioned a bunch in this colossal thread. UCF may not play in the AAC title game. They are the favorite to represent the east division right now. But they have to beat South Florida in the final regular season game. A pretty good South Florida team that only has one loss. A loss to the Bulls means UCF doesn't play in the conference title game and clearly doesn't get a New Years Six bowl.

    Duh, from the school he's going to be the head coach of next year ... UCLA!
