  1. LB Nick Henrich [Nebraska Commit]

    Holy F’NG F! Huge pick up! He was THE #1 guy on the boards for SF and Ruud went and got him. Holy freaking cow I am fired up!
  2. Get with The Program

    There is a HUGE difference between BUDS and basic training.
  3. RB Moses Bryant [Nebraska Commit- PWO]

    The staff may still be pushing for another CB transfer other than the ND kid. Sipple didn’t say who, but intimated that there was another target. If true, 2 more will need to leave for Moses to get a scholarship.
  4. LB Jackson Hannah [Nebraska Commit]

    Henrich is priority #1 for Frost, he gets a spot no matter what if he wants it.
  5. QB Luke McCaffrey [Nebraska Commit]

    Where else do you love close to? I want to know where to avoid......

    I don’t think Frost will undersign just for walkon spots. I think it is a safe bet he will sign the full amount, +3 over 85, each time and rely on attrition after Spring Ball to give spots out as he sees are deserving. The issue with Bo and MR is that they weren’t aggressive in pushing to get to the max 88 number on signing day.

    My Mom ordered and had shipped frozen Runzas to me in NY for my B-Day last year. They taste pretty good cooked in the oven.
  8. OT Devontae Dobbs [Michigan State Commit]

    And Auburn has actually won a title in 2010 and was in the title game again in January 2014.
  9. Sipple mentioned this morning that Moos said Alvarez is opposed to playing on Black Friday so it won’t happen. Everyone just needs to embrace having Iowa there and revel in the opportunity to beat them.
  10. ***2019 Recruiting***

    Sure the offers are out now, but they are still catching up on building relationships with their identified targets. Other teams locked in their board well before NU and could focus on the top recruits for a longer period of time. Yes there are a few targets I am sure the NU staff have been working on for awhile, but there are many more they had to evaluate first to determine which ones they should expend their human capital on. Those are the ones they are playing catch up on. Just look at how many recruits they offered already had multiple offers prior.
  11. RB Maurice Washington [Nebraska-Signed LOI]

    Schaefer expanded a bit on the radio this morning. Apparently the school he is now enrolled in is an online school so he has no support structure in place currently to help him ensure he finishes the requisite courses. The NU coaches do try to keep in touch, but apparently Washington has a habit of going off the grid sometimes. Not that the kid doesn’t want to come to NU, just seems he may not have the sense of purpose needed to get to NU. ——edit—- It doesn’t look they have put up a podcast of that segment yet, but when they do it will be posted here: http://www.theticketfm.com/category/early-break/
  12. RB Thomas Grayson [Nebraska Commit]

    Otis Anderson was an early enrollee so he had winter workouts, Spring ball, and summer workouts before Fall camp. Washington won’t have any of that before hitting Fall camp.
  13. RB Thomas Grayson [Nebraska Commit]

    It isn’t the scheme that will hold Washington back, it is whether or not he will be in shape enough for SF. As we have seen so far, there is “in shape” and there is “SF in shape.” Coming in late and missing most of the summer conditioning I just don’t see Washington being able to keep up in Fall camp while also trying to learn the offense.

    I love this song and it really gets you going, but extending the intro may be tough.
  15. Jamal Lord vs Taylor Martinez

    I find the revisionist history of T-Magic's career really sad. Fact is that TM was a much better QB than Lord and it isn't even close. Lord was one of my favorites, but he was playing out of position IMO, should have been a Safety. Below are both of their career stats. TM was a career 59.8% passer, and was above 60% his final two years. Jamal was a 48% career passer and in the two seasons Jamal started, and had more than 16 attempts, he couldn't even be a 50% passer. Yes they both played in different offenses, but to assert that Jamal would have completed just as many passes as TM in TM's offensive system is stretching the truth. The two primary reasons I think that people stick to, and IMO plays a large role in why people discount TM's career, are his sophomore season and the 2012 B1G Title Game. However when TM got hurt in the Missery game in 2010, he was never the same that year and picked up some really bad habits to overcompensate for what he couldn't do. Just look at what he did against Okie State earlier in the year versus what he couldn't do against A&M. Heck the coaches went to a Wildcat with Rex just to win the last games of the year as TM couldn't play and/or be effective. IMO he took those bad habits into 2011 and you get those videos of ugly shotput style throws. To his credit, he went to Steve Calhoun in the offseason to fix his bad habits and came back with a vengence in 2012, completing 62% of his passes and winning OPOY for the B1G. His ability to bring the team back from behind was incredible. However the second thing that helps blind people to just how great TM was that year was the B1G Title game. I don't put that on TM at all. Heck we all had a bad feeling when Baker S. got hurt before the game due to the razor thin depth on the DL already at that point. Heck Cam Meredith was playing DT, which he had no business playing, because they had no one else to fill in. To put that game on TM or to let it wipe out what was a magical season is a shame. I also think getting hurt in 2013 and not being able to wipe the bad taste out of the fans' mouths from the end of 2012, especially since the injury was self-inflicted, just helps to solidify the negative perceptions many have of TM. People seem to only remember his struggles in 2011 or his pre-Missery injury play in 2010 and wonder what if, but it seems 2012 gets erased completely. Yes there are a lot of what ifs with TM, but frankly he was one of the very best players in the last 15 years and I just don't feel people give him the respect he earned.
