  1. DE Micah Parsons [Penn State- Signed LOI]

    I really wish the best for Franklin. He really does try to hold his players accountable and teach them to do things the right way.
  2. 2018 NFL Grades

    To me, more than recruiting this really shows the talent we put on the field, because for the past few years we have out recruited both Wisconsin and Iowa. Nebraska-5 players at the combine- average grade of 4.98 Wisconsin- 8 players at the combine- average grade of 5.18 Iowa- 6 players at the combine- average grade of 5.63 Northwestern-2 players at the combine- average grade of 5.4 Purdue -1 player at the combine- grade of 5.4 Illinois -1 player at the combine- grade of 4.9 UCF -4 players at the combine- average grade of 5.3 Bama- 14 players at the combine-average grade of 5.77 *reference point: Saquon Barkley was graded at a 7.4 I'm not saying that the average grade is indicative of how successful a team will be, but it does give insight into how our best players match up with the rest of the country. I don't think we need to match Bama's 14 combine invitees to compete with them, but I do think our star players need to start playing like stars. Thoughts?

  3. WR Nikko Hall [Colorado State - Signed LOI]

    Is this guy visiting this weekend?
  4. Thank you, MR

    For me, there is no denying the man did his best to get the program back to where it needs to be. Unfortunately, he fell short. I want to wish him nothing but the best and thank him for all the contributions he made to the program. He's a class act and will always be a Husker in my eyes. Best of luck.
  5. With a backup QB you throw it on 4 and 1?
  6. Realistic Coaching Hires with the AD

    We'll be in year two of the defense; we'll have depth along the o-line; and we'll return all of our RBs. Not to mention the West is a conference we can consistently compete for. Everyone knows his past record, but the current Oregon State situation shows me that he did what had to do (e.g. keeping the assistants he did) to keep that program alive. I truly believe he is just beginning to tap into the resources here, and I think given more time, if he survives, he'll learn and adapt. Just my opinion.
  7. Realistic Coaching Hires with the AD

    Aside from the anger I have for when we lose, I do think highly of MR. The man fired two long time friends and assistants because he wanted be to win. (If Bo would have done that he likely would still be here). I think if he can survive the year, we'll like what we see next year.
  8. Realistic Coaching Hires with the AD

    Because I think more damage would be done to the program if we get rid of him with that record. I also think we aren't that far from being where we want to be. We have the athletes but we are an OC, OL coach, and TE coach from consistently winning the West (granted there are other coaches that I would like to see go but those need to go).
  9. Realistic Coaching Hires with the AD

    1) 8-4 Mike Riley with the promise he'll make the needed coaching changes. 2a) Matt Campbell 2b) Justin Fuente 3) Scott Frost 4) Chip Kelly
  10. Lack of offensive creativity

    I respectfully disagree. If play calling was be the determinative factor, then it would be chess. Football at it's most basic level comes down to players making plays. And while the play calling wasn't perfect, and it can definitely be shored up, there were certainly plays to be made. And to be quite frank I would take 30 year old women, who have a desire to win, to block for me than the TEs that we have. A team with inferior athletes always has a chance to win. Look at Troy, they played more physical than LSU. NIU wanted it more. Michigan State wanted it more than UM. Because for damn sure none of those teams had superior athletes. We have a poison in this program that supercedes coaching, and that is our players don't have the desire nor the accountability to win. Winning has to be a part of you, regardless of championships, rings, or accolades and we don't have it.
  11. Lack of offensive creativity

    Let me clarify. It's the most fundamental factor in football, and we don't have it. Whether we threw the ball 100 times or ran it 100 times, it would not have been determinative because our coaches and players are not ashamed of losing, as long as, "they are getting better." By your logic if we had a new coordinator, different system, or better play calling we would have won. But we've had multiple OCs and multiple systems since the glory days and the only constant is when we face tough defenses we punk up. That's mentality.
  12. Lack of offensive creativity

    It's not taking a pass on coaching to say that there wasn't a desire to win. I'm saying the dropped passes, the inability to break coverages, the fumble, the inability to finish blocks, and the inability for the TEs to do anything in the game those are mental issues. Your Harvard analogy is crap in this situation. We have comparable if not better athletes than Wisconsin, but they have a different mentality than we do.
  13. Lack of offensive creativity

    I understand what you are saying but Wisconsin ran the same damn play in the second half and we couldn't stop it. Play calling wasn't the issue... It was the teams desire to win.
  14. Wisconsin Post-Game Pressers

    On the night when we honored the the '97 team his team gets thumped, and this is his attitude? No visible frustration, shame, or embarrassment. Just a ho-hum mentality? MR if you don't want to win just resign before you poison the well even more.
  15. What does MR need to do to earn back your TRUST?

    I think he is going to be given at least til the end of the year.
