There's no reasonable reason - considering where the coordinators were at - to believe they should be able to do everything that needs to be done in a post-game presser, to do a post-game presser.

Wut?

Diaco logic, lol

 

I think what Enhance is getting to is that coordinators won't have enough discernable information available that closely after the game in order to provide comprehensive answers to questions from reporters.

That's not  the point. Why do we need to hear from them? Frost is the face, let him answer the questions.

 

I'm assuming this means that the coordinators will be available on Monday's for questions. That should be good enough. Give them time to review film and actually have real answers for the questions they receive.

Not just cause he had a long run in the spring game, but I truly feel Mazour has the talent to have a good amount of touches this season.

I definitely wouldn't be surprised. He also had a filthy cutback on a run at one point in the first or second quarter. He has pretty good vision.

 

As for the other competition, I think Bell is positioning himself to be the starter. Zig tends to defy expectations but I just don't think he's going to mesh well with this offense and Saturday somewhat reinforced that. Wilbon looked big... almost too big... even though he broke a couple decent runs. Bradley also looked like he could stand to lose just a little bit of weight. Maurice Washington will be another interesting story line to see develop come fall camp.

If I had to guess on another offensive guy to leave this summer it would be Ozigbo or Ben Miles. Bell will be the #1, but there will be several guys getting carries as well - Wilbon, Mazour, M. Jones, Washington.

Adrian Martinez's swing at 1:06. By gawhd. 

Yeah, you can tell some of the freshman haven't been 1 sport specialists as long as the upperclassmen have been. It's crazy how much muscle memory you lose in just a couple years.

Interesting comment after Dixon had success last year at Ol Miss in the SEC.

 

 

 

Success??????  5 tackles in 6 games???????  I also believe he was playing DB at Ole Miss.

Forgot about a position change. Comment makes more sense. 

 

Ol Miss fans were very pleased with how he played as a true freshman.

I mean, what else do you say as a coach? No need to give anything other than optimism until at least fall camp starts.

Frost had no update on the status of Michael Decker as NU's is about to begin their summer program.

 

“I think more than anything I think it’s a matter of him getting healthy,” Frost said of Decker. “He did a great job in spring being around and learning. We feel good about where he is, but we just have to get him 100 percent healthy, and I think the rest will take care of itself.”

They start out with talk about the satellite camp but then talk quite a bit about current Huskers and what he saw this spring.

Compared Tyrin Ferguson to Shaquem Griffin... I'd be okay with that.

Sorry if this was already posted.

"I went and pushed the biggest button in the room. Lamar Jackson, I pushed his button," Fisher said with a smile. "I said, 'No, you're not going to the NFL.' I don't know if your last coaching staff told you that, but, 'No, you're not good enough.' There were some guys that looked up like, 'Woo.' But that's what I had to do to get guys to understand that you have a lot more inside of you. It's just hidden. You don't want to bring it out because you're so used to even-keel. And there's no such thing as even-keel in football."

It takes a very special type of leader/coach to be able to flat out say that and motivate with it instead of demoralize and push away the other person.  Obviously, what Jackson was doing before, wasn't working for him or the team so the risk was worth it.  From what I've gathered, he was able to motivate Jackson to get better.

 

I'm somewhat surprised he made that conversation public.  But, he must feel that he now has a good enough relationship with Jackson to do that.

I remember when Bo told Suh that he needed to get better before going to the NFL, which is a major reason Suh returned for his senior season.

 

It worked on Suh and he had one of the most dominant seasons of any player in NCAA history in 2009.  Maybe it'll light a fire under Jackson.

Agree with the first part. 

 

Really hope the second part is also true.

That's an awesome mentality i love it ! Many times there's a fine line between the starter, and the rest. Good coaching, hard work, and flat out wanting it more, are often the difference. Jackson in particular IMO,  has the size and physical ability to be a star. I  hope he responds and realizes his potential. Our team will be better off if he does.

That, and/or he may still be looking for ways to push Jackson beyond what he's already done. Coaches are often methodical when they make statements like that to the public, particularly when they know media members are around.
