Spring Ball Video Recaps

Recommended Posts

I know its baseball season so there probably isn't anybody on this forum interested about football yet, but here is some boring Spring Football video. Apparently the Hooskers got a new coach, Steven Frust or something, who cares.

Glad to get glimpses inside practice but man that video was almost entirely a snoozefest.

This is awesome. Love what they were doing at UCF with KnightFlicks. Let's keep it rolling.  Hopefully Sam can find something to write about with this.

I was prepared to argue with you on this point before I watched the video.... I've now watched it.... You were right:lol:

Hell yeah this is awesome, it said "Episode 1" so I hope that means they're doing a full Rise & Conquer style series here too. The ones from UCF were great

Turns out, Scott Frost is bringing more than just his entire coaching staff from Central Florida. 

He's also bringing the branding campaign. 

On Monday, Nebraska debuted a four-minute documentary short that showed clips of the Huskers' first week of football practice. The video, which is titled "Episode 1: Expectations" mimics a series UCF produced called "Rise and Conquer."

During the springs of Frost's two seasons in Orlando, UCF released short clips of the team and coaching staff to introduce fans to their process. We wrote about what we learned from those videos a few months ago. 

Here are a few things we learned from the first episode of Nebraska's series:

The Rise and Conquer (rebranded, of course) is the one thing, besides the results, that I'd love to see "copied" from his previous coaching gig.

I want to see more of Frost shoving guys. I'd watch a highlight reel of that.

I'd like to think that the "treat every practice like a game" mantra that keeps showing up is just these coaches imploring everyone to get better.

 

I'm afraid that is part of the change in culture that is desperately needed.

Glad to hear that I'm not the only one that got a little excited over that.

Simple changes in culture can take a team a long ways.  Look no further than Brohm at Purdue for an example.  7 wins in his first year, good for 3rd place in the west, and had several close losses that nearly went their way.  (Contrast that with last place the year before) .  Just toughening that team up was good for a 5 win swing.  I would be thrilled if we could get a 5 game swing.  May even build a statue.

 

EDIT:  yeah, i know there was more to their improvement than just toughening up, but hopefully my point was still made.

You're spot on, though. I think 'toughening up' can go towards a lot of different aspects of culture and manifest itself in some positive ways. It may not immediately lend itself to a huge swing in W/L but it also could mean the difference between a 5 win season and a 7 win season.

 

Hell, Loyola basketball made the Final Four this year. I'm fine with hoping they blow the top of this thing and get to 8 or 9 wins. Not expecting, just hoping.

Love these!  Our social media presence has been improving over the last few years but this is taking it to a whole different level.

 

Also, has there been more tackling in the first half of this spring than in the previous three years?

I think so;  a couple of players have noted as much in interviews if I remember correctly.

There's a limit to the amount of tackling the NCAA allows them to do but who knows whether we were meeting it before.

On the HuskerOnline podcast they said there has been quite a bit of tackling to the ground this spring. They noted that this was a significant change from past springs.

It's awesome that Frost isn't really featured in these videos very much. 

 

His speeches and orders to the team are not included much either. So many coaches would put on for the camera. Frost is authentic and focused. So cool

I've heard this in a few places and it's a buoyed a fascination in me to find out what practices are truly like at other programs like Alabama, Clemson, tOSU, Stanford, etc. Was Nebraska that far off previously? Are they now on par with some of the more dominant (or often viewed as 'physical') programs out there?

 

I'm also interested to see what this ultimately translates to in the fall - the combination of speed and physicality. Frost told Osborne he felt that Oregon needed a more physical element when he was a coordinator there, but it wasn't really his situation to control.

Thought i had heard that a team is only allowed so many plays or so many days/hours of true contact - does anybody know the answer?  because if it is based on hours/days - then frost has a huge advantage by running so many plays in each practice.....

Not sure if this is the most recent info., but I found this on the NCAA's site:

 

Quote

Of the 15 allowable sessions that may occur during the spring practice season, eight practices may involve live contact (tackling or thud); three of these live contact practices may include greater than 50 percent live contact (scrimmages).  Live contact practices should be limited to two in a given week and should not occur on consecutive days.  The day following live scrimmage should be non-contact/minimal contact.

Thanks!!! - Seems like this would be an advantage for a coach that is trying to get a team to play more like a 90's Husker team.

They look different. Man they were out of shape and soft. 

 

They’ve made noticeable gains, they look like D1 football players now
