  1. *** Official 2018 Spring Game Thread ***

    While I totally agree about the meter pointing up...never read anything into a spring game. Especially when it's not 1v1.
  2. ESPN FPI Says 5.5-6.5 for the Huskers

    I am making a trip to a road game for the first time since Mizzou in '07 to see NU in Columbus in November. That night, I will be content if we make Ohio State punt for the first time in 3 years. Every other game I would be surprised if each is not competitive. I expect close games all year with way more fight than has been shown in a long time.
  3. RB Maurice Washington [Nebraska-Signed LOI]

    I did not think they were mutually exclusive, but I last looked at the requirements closely 15 years ago when I was headed to Lincoln.
  4. Zac Taylor vs Tommy Armstrong

    TBH, those Jekyll and Hyde guys (mainly the last two before Lee) are the providers of most of the bright spots of the last 17 years. With the abysmal state of things, Taylor taking one 80 yards or a TA 99 yard YOLO has been about as good as its gotten round here since 2001. Yes they provided bad moments as well, but the whole team has had bad moments repeatedly for a long time also.
  5. Which Husker Mascot Are You?

  6. Where is the Recruiting Momentum?

    Do you mean recruiting momentum by sheer number of visits or are you thinking visits/chatter from high star guys? Things will be different under Frost as he is not afraid to go after a low 3 star guy if he thinks he fits or that he sees things in that recruit others don't. So while we will still have some 4/5 star guys sniffing around, we will also have a lot of low 3/high 3 guys being at the top of the board. I would expect this staff to elevate the talent they get, like NU used to, instead of getting higher ranked guys that do nothing like we have seen recently. I do expect bigger things from the recruits Riley brought in now that he is gone.
  7. Can't Miss Any Games This Year

    TBH, I have been expecting that for years. Every year during the Pelini era we would get curb stomped on ABC or eSPN in the one big gane they would schedule us. I am surprised it took em that long to stop putting us on.
  8. Can't Miss Any Games This Year

    Especially for a message board poster. Boggles the mind a bit here Michigan Dad. I would expect that from a casual fan, but no one around here is casual. If you have comcast, can you swing BTN? If not, do you know someone who does that would share login info? You can then use the Big Ten app, Fos soirts app, etc to watch games. You can get a chromecast for cheap to send anything on a phone or tablet to your tv. I have been watching this way since 2011, when I cut the cord from cable.
  9. Broken Chair Remade

  10. Key to UCF's Success? Coaches Doing Less

    I agree with this. Mostly because there is nowhere to go but up.
  11. Spring Practice Notes

    I thought it was funny too. Apparently Moiraine is pass the damn ball gal.
  12. Who starts at QB?

    This first part is not on topic either, but everytime you post I expect my screen to zoom in... On topic...I fully expect Gebbia to start the season because of what is between his ears. Martinez hopefully will push him, but I think Tristan is smart enough to thrive under Frost.
  13. Duval's conditioning starts Monday. UCF players share.

    Where else would you put him?
  14. Who's Worse: Riley VS Callahan

    Steve P. Was awful yes, but he was hired by Perlman. Soemeone correct me if I am wrong, but I think Harv wanted to blaze his own trail, and I think there was a fair amount of struggle. Perlman thought he was the smartest guy in the building.
