  1. Chicago Tribune Article on Santino Panico

    I don't even remember this guy, but then again, I have blacked that era of football out of my mind!
  2. Scott Frost Signing Day Presser

    Absolutely insane what he and the staff since they were announced. He has to have an amazing wife and family to assist and support. I am very excited for what they will all do with the Huskers! As a high school coach it is stressful on the family...there is no way I could even begin to understand the stress he has been under!
  3. LB Nick Henrich

    Would be great to get this kid...I gotta think Frost and company put the full court press on to get him to stay home!
  4. OT Bryce Benhart

    Solid offer. Glad to see the Huskers coming up here to MN. Coached against this kid as well in football and wrestling.
  5. Lindsey and Owen Hospitalized

    You do not have control over ALL variables....just not possible. I agree that this should not happen again, but to just throw stones at the staff saying they should have known this was going to happen or they should know better it just ridiculous. Things happen and sometimes you do not know they are going to happen until they happen. It is tough that two kids had their body react they did. Frost coming out saying they did evaluate the players and dialed it back a little, they had training staff in with the kids and coaches, etc should be enough for you to know they took precautions to keep the players safe. Unfortunately there was an issue. They will learn from it and move forward.
  6. Lindsey and Owen Hospitalized

    And they can land in the hospital playing the game football. Do you honestly believe they did not take precautions? I mean, seriously? Even as a high school coach our staff take precautions in the weight room, on the field, etc. I think it is safe to assume that college coaches at this level would take the same if not better precautions.
  7. OT Quinn Carroll

    That game was at our place and he was doing some kind of 'tour' around the metro area. The arrived in a helicopter wearing a Goofs jersey with this kid's number on it. He was on the field and talking with the Edina coaches and acting like he normally does. He then gave a pitty visit to our head coach and our coach basically blew him off. Just thought it was tacky to show up at the opposing team's field with this kid's jersey number on. I know schedules are tight, but our kids and fans were a little miffed. I probably took more offense to it because I think the guy is a tool and all about himself. To each their own I guess! Back to Quinn, it would be great to get him. Mauler type player!
  8. OT Quinn Carroll

    Was wondering if/when we were going to offer this kid. Coached against him this year...he is a monster! He is a legacy kid for the Goofs. Fleck came to our game last year and was a complete dips#!t. However, there are some big names after him. Will be interesting where he ends up.
  9. National Championship Game

    ZERO interest in this game. Until the NCAA gets it figured out, the NC game will continue to be like this. It is a sham and is very frustrating how they will not change to a larger tournament.
  10. Nick Gates Declares For NFL Draft

    Good luck...now we will all get our answer of how poorly he was coached here, if he was lazy as hell, or if he truly has the potential. The way he looked against top caliber guys the last two years leads me to believe he was poorly coached, lazy, and did not reach his potential. Hopefully he proves himself and can get it done. Always good to see former Huskers excel at the next level.
  11. Two reasons I was cheering for UCF today: 1. Any team playing against the SEC is a team I am going to root for...like right now, I am cheering for f-ing Oklahoma! 2. Frost was coaching and I wanted his time to end on a positive note there UCF looked great today and definitely deserved to win this game. Good work by the Knights!!
  12. Weight Room Meeting with SF/Former Players

    "I don't know what to say other than come help me do this!" Man, it is going to be great!!!
  13. My issues with the offensive line

    Gates must have disliked TA as well...he sucked last year too!
  14. Now is the time to announce

    Wonder if keeping him on and Riley announcing his retirement is the route here??? Riley is pretty honorable and maybe Moos gave this option?? Just wishful thinking I guess...
  15. ***Official Minnesota Game Discussion Thread***

    OL cannot block for s#!t so no other options. This just keeps turning more into a circus!!!
