  1. Obviously the base principles would be successful. Those should be used in any program regardless of sport. What I'm saying is if you took Boyds program and didn't change a thing about it I don't think it could work today. You can run and jump as much as you want but if there's no time spent with flexibility, mobility and joint stabilization it's all pointless.
  2. Totally agree with this. Boyd's program that was used in the 90's wouldn't succeed in today's environment. To me the root of this issue isn't the strength staff at NU. These kids specialize in one sport at a very early age. They train for one sport, lift for one sport etc. This creates weaknesses and imbalances that if not properly addressed will eventually catch up with any athlete. There has to be time spent focusing on stabilization and strengthening not only muscles but tendons and connective tissue. These things seem boring but can make a big difference.

    But in all seriousness you're probably right. I just couldn't miss out on the chance to post that.
  4. Yikes. 0-3 for the weekend.
  5. Week 7 picks: FSU -7.5 Michigan -7 Wisconsin -17
  6. Not arguing in favor of them not making it. But when it's included on a list of accomplishments of a coach I feel it should be pointed out. Never in my life will I root for Nebraska to lose. Even that night when I was 12 I rooted like hell for Nebraska even though i understood we had no business being in that game.
  7. Never mind it was a NC that we had no business being in.

    Guess I'll apologize for starting the chaos. Wasn't the intended outcome.
  9. 1. Alabama- I know this is unpopular but i love watching the way they play football. 2. Clemson- Same as above 3. Wiscy- Would love to get to see what they can do on a national stage. 4. Washington State- A full month of Mike Leach interviews? Yes please.
  10. Thank You Fans

    I love the tradition that the blue hairs started and passed down through the generations but these type of things drive me insane. I've been told a couple of times through the years to sit at games. There has to be some sort of solution for this. Also the crowd sounded real loud on TV and my speakers in my vehicle damn near broke when A. Williams had his pick 6. Was driving from one party to the other. Should've just stayed in the car. Game got out of hand once we got there.
  11. Those Florida uniforms are far worse than anything we have seen at Nebraska. Just proof that even Nike can create something that looks awful.

    Will be interesting to see if this happens. For whatever reason lately I've been having a hunch that Riley gets another year. If he's canned I think Bookie ends up at Clemson assuming the new coach can't keep the class together.
  13. Trending down in the Trenches?

    Agreed with the bolded part. And for as well as Jaimes has been playing the fact that he is playing tells you all you need to know about some of the "talent" Riley inherited across the O-line. Once could make the argument that our 2 worst lineman right now are the 2 most veteran lineman. Now I'm still not sold that Cav is a good coach along the line but once he made the switch to Decker and Jaimes, which was forced upon him due to injuries, our line has looked better. Hopefully that can continue this week and into the rest of the season.
  14. Big fat 0fer this week. 9-8-1 on the year now.
  15. Going to take my first L this season while scoring 140 points. Congrats to the Foxtrotters who played out of their ass this week.
