  1. This is just getting bizarre. This is starting to remind me of a kid that committed to Callahan years back. Committed to ASU, Oregon State, and Nebraska, and tried to fax in LOC's to 2 schools, if memory serves me correctly. I will be watching NSD closely this year.
  2. 3-4 current player positions

    3-4 is tough to run in college without a really strong D-Line to eat up blocks. Not a ton of teams run it. I believe K-State runs it (or did), Wisconsin does, but I am not sure of many others that do. If Riley/Devaney assesses we can run it, they must see something in the current line talent being better at the skills to translate to 3-4, as opposed to being up the field pass rushers. I don't see it, but Riley/Devaney have forgotten more about football than I know, so I'll defer to their judgment.
  3. Banker is Fired!!

    If Devaney did any film study from the Tennessee game, he probably saw massive defensive breakdowns. Also, if Riley wants to move to a 3-4, Devaney is probably instrumental in identifying which players would be suitable for each position in the front 7. Then he has done what he was brought here to do. It is very telling when a coach is publicly stating he has a talent deficiency leading to his group's failure. Talent has nothing to do with poor pursuit angles, leverage, technique, etc. Those are all able to be improved through coaching. Last year, the excuse was a new scheme and players not buying in. There is a common thread in both years, and it was time to stop shaking the magic 8 ball of excuses.
  4. 30 for 30?

    Good find here, and it seems as if it is coming. This will be awesome, and I am sure we all might hear a nugget or 2 that we never heard before.
  5. Carl Crawford Nebraska Quarterback

    Carl Crawford is never healthy playing baseball. What makes everyone so sure he would have actually been healthy enough to be on the field? One thing is for sure, I am glad the Dodgers turned the page from him, even if it means paying him to go away.
  6. Pre-Season AP Poll Released

    I am not buying Washington or Tennessee yet. Washington has a proven coach, but not convinced they have a strong enough program yet. Tennessee should win, but probably won't. They have been a team on the come since Lane Kiffin was their coach, and still haven't broke through.
  7. Who then?

    If Pelini is out, the first person they should call is Joe Moglia. Took an average program on at Coastal Carolina, and won their league last year, and they are 5-0 this year. The man also led a fortune 500 company out of the perils of impending failure to become the leading online broker dealer in the country.
  8. CBS Sports has us in the Rose Bowl

    Isn't this the objective of football, to outscore the opponent?
  9. Dirks Turnover Article

    Cut that number in half and you are looking at a top 10 team.
  10. Tyler Moore

    +1 for this guy. A large percentage of your coaches/managers/bosses throughout your life will not cater to you 100% of the time and kneel to your greatness.
  11. Charles Jackson

    Whatever they do, put him at one position, coach him up, get him on the field, and turn him loose. Don't bounce back and forth and waffle over what to do, make a decision and get the kid out there somehow.
  12. Sound Familiar?

    The similarity is this: That team lost by 5 TD's that day in a game they were expected to win, much too similar to Saturday night. They were a good, not great team, and some holes were beginning to be exposed. That malaise carried over to the bowl game and they were blasted by the co-national champ. Osborne took it to task to shift his recruiting up in the next year or so, and McBride made a change in the defense in 92, and the rest is history. I do not necessarily think Pelini is on the edge of going 60-3 in the next 5 years, but I think that when you take a step back and look at where this program is at, and realize that the defense was a patchwork, and the offense is very young and almost everyone returns, that Saturday may be a speed bump. My generation is so results-focused and has no patience whatsoever, that 5 years without a title seems like an eternity. I'm not ready to throw the towel in, and Pelini will show his true worth by how he and his staff are able to regroup, strategize and energize the players to get ready for the future. If he refuses to learn anything from that showcase, then he is a fool and that will show soon enough.
  13. Sound Familiar?

    Found something from the archives that seemed pretty relevant to the sentiment after Saturday evening. Bottom line is this: This isn't new. This program is closer to the pinnacle than it was 5 years ago, and trending in the proper direction. Bo may have the right pieces in place on his staff to make a run. Bo may have the right players in his pipeline to make this happen. I like to be fairly objective about things, and I feel like this program is on the verge of crossing over the hump. Last Saturday night was a major disappointment, but I think what the key is how the team responds next year. A loss like that could light a fire under the program, and I think it just might. Bring on the Dawgs come Jan 1, I think they are going to be in for one heckuva fight.
  14. Pelini was a rumored candidate long before you made any such post. I think you may have posted in jest, but I have a feeling that there is more legit chatter going on not necessarily fueled by your experiment.
