  1. Verduzco Breaks Down Spring Game

    Footwork is the starting point for every sport.
  2. Husker Chalk Talk: Saints Play Action

    Another aspect of Frost's offense is utilizing different position groups in various positions to mess with the defense. Frost could go 2 TE's and 2 RB's to make the opposing D think that NU is going heavy and going to run the ball, and bringing in LB's to match up with the TE's. Then, Frost can still go with this same formation, replacing TE's for the WR's and putting Bell out as a WR. If the D stays in a nickel or dime, Frost will just run the ball at them. Frost wants versatility out of his players so the position groups can be interchangeable for each other.
  3. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    While more of the starters may have been on the Red team, Chinander said there were defense was more balanced among the red & white teams than the offense (which top units were predominantly on the red team).

    Yes, NU has been slow to get QB's who can do both, although Taylor Martinez was statistically a better passer than most want to admit. The best thing about Frost's offense is that it doesn't require QB's to throw into tight windows or make "tough throws". Once the offense gets clicking, we will see guys running wide open.

    I know many people think that you can't have both a running QB who can also pass, but with the QB training and 7 on 7's the past decade, the more mobile QB's are becoming better passers than ever.
  6. Husker Chalk Talk: Saints Play Action

    Yes, the o-line will still probably be a weakness with the offense, but it's good to see the QB's actually have some running ability when the pocket does break down. A mobile QB will really slow down a pass rush, especially if the defense is playing man coverage in the back 7.
  7. I don't know how many jobs ConAgra has left in Omaha after moving their HQ to Chicago.
  8. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    A&M had a bunch of QB's transfer in recent years. In 2016, the Alabama starting QB in week 1 immediately transferred to a JUCO after he was benched for Jaylin (sp?) Hurts. It will be interesting to see if any of the young Michigan QB's (one of them a McCaffrey) transfer this fall if the transfer from Ole Miss wins the job and is immediately eligible.
  9. I don't get this thought at all? Care to explain?
  10. Tyjon Lindsey

    The Nebraska media guys would say that Lindsey should have been running deep patterns down the middle of the field twice a game last year. It might have been done just a handful of times all year in 2017. I think it was the Northwestern game where Lindsey broke free behind the secondary and Lee missed him on the pass. Quite a synopsis of the Riley era.

    Me too

    He wasn't put in the best situations to utilize his speed and athleticism last year. The offense last year didn't create a lot of opportunities for guys in space. So, when Lindsey was spending so much time dancing and moving side-to-side, it made him look slow and dispirited. What I liked about what I saw on Saturday was that they got Lindsey in space, and they got him moving upfield and in one-on-one situations against a defender.

    I agree, and that's why I didn't like it when a few posters made comments of "too many sideways passes during the Spring game". They are just simplistic statements. We don't know the full extent of how each offenses utilized the sideways passes and the full concept of the play designs.
  14. Which QB Should Be The Starter

    Great points about guys coming into college much more ready to play than 10-20 years go. Martinez is already the most well-built QB on the roster by his listed height and weight, along with the eye test of seeing him on the field. He isn't the QB who is going to need a year to get ready physically.
  15. New Husker Chalk Talk

    Yep, there might have been one of those plays called. I watched the Spring game, but not to much detail.
