  1. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    Let's give the guy a bit of a break.
  2. In a perfect world I would but I didn't think about it far enough in advance so I won't get them done by Saturday.
  3. It's a common thought process among people outside Nebraska so it doesn't bother me much.
  4. JD Spielman named Freshman All-American

    I think Frost is going to be jacked over the potential of this kid in years to come.
  5. Wow - dude puts it as his second favorite all time. Very high praise. I'm pumped after listening to that, too. I loved TFA but definitely felt the story was an extravagant rehashing of familiar themes. I'm rewatching TFA tonight in preparation. Tickets are in hand for Saturday. Let's go!!!!
  6. Peach Bowl

    Agreed - it's a non-issue exactly for the reason you described. What else would he wear? Besides, I sincerely hope nobody gets irritated or frustrated over something so trivial as what he's wearing as UCF's 'Game Day Head Coach.'
  7. Similar vibes from Yahoo Sports: The shade they throw on Tennessee is quite aggressive.
  8. Peach Bowl

    Considering the first practice is today, I'm surprised we haven't heard any definitive answer yet about what's going to happen during the next few weeks.
  9. Honest Expectations (Frost and Co)

    Expectations for the first couple of years, for me, is progress. Show that you're a tougher team, a more physical team, a more mentally tough team. Show that you're not going to go on the road and lose to an average B1G program by 30-40 points. I'll start worrying about B1G division titles and conference titles once we can prove the above.
  10. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    It looks like Harbaugh's first class may have been ranked around the 50's (might also help explain why they're 8-4 and don't seem to have a QB). Regardless, and to no surprise, I think there are a lot of inherent difficulties when you take over in December and have two weeks to meet the early signing period and a little over two months to sign a class. It's only fair to give some leeway in regards to the final result. I don't follow recruiting that closely either, but, I do know Nebraska has often made a lot of hay with guys who may not be getting offers from the elite of the elite schools. But, there are plenty of guys on the offers list that are up there. I'll reserve my judgement for February.
  11. Assistants Announced

    Unless I missed the nexus (and apologies if I did) I don't understand what square dancing has to do with Frost's assistant coaches...?
  12. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    Wisconsin/MSU winning or sharing five of the last 10 B1G conference championships is not an 'outlier.' It may coincide with down time from Michigan, PSU and tOSU, but that's football. There's some give and take on this topic. There has to be. If Nebraska aspires to win conference titles, recent history suggests that's an incredibly achievable goal based on their current recruiting level. If Nebraska aspires to win national championships, recent history suggests their recruiting needs to experience marked improvement. Nebraska, much like the program's history shows us, will likely almost always have to find a way to do more with less.

  14. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    No, but @The Scarlet Pimpernel is right - current trends suggest you need to be an elite recruiter if you want to win a national championship. I don't think it does anybody any good to stick their feet in the dirt and suggest the recruiting rankings don't matter because they do to a degree. They're just not the end all be all. Coaching, culture and scheme play a significant role, as well. Nebraska has always been a school that needed to get the most out of presumably 'less' talent and that's what Frost is going to have to do if he wants to win a conference championship (let alone a national championship) at Nebraska. NU will likely never consistently recruit at the level of tOSU and Michigan. But, they never have to begin with.
  15. Extremely impressed with the new staff on the recruiting trail

    I think we also shouldn't undervalue 1) Riley's perception and 2) his team's overall performances, in regards to recruiting. If I'm an outsider evaluating Nebraska's previous regime, I don't see excitement or buzz. I see a guy who is a perennial .500 coach at a school in the flyover area who has yet to really prove to me that he can take me to the next level at Nebraska. Flip that to now where you have one of the biggest up and comers in the country that kids relate to and remember the skill of the teams this guy coached on. They remember the early 2010 Oregons. They just saw his team go undefeated and win a championship game playing a fun, upbeat offense. It's not going to win us every recruiting battle or get us top flight recruits all the time, but, it definitely helps the cause.
