    We rarely run 4 receivers? Hoppes is on the field a ton of snaps. They run a bunch of 2 tight stuff when we aren't trailing by 30. None of this matters but if you don't like running out of 10 formations you're really not gonna like Scott Frost. He will run a bunch of 3 and 4 WR sets to create space in the middle to run. If anything the opposite of what you are saying is true. when we run the ball we typically run our of 2 tight end sets with a FB and alot of the time motioning a tight end play sidem Something of this variation is almost always done and it draws 8-9 defenders into the box just based on our formation. now if we had a stellar O-line and pro level tight ends, this could end up being an awesome thing as we could still dictate the run game by manhandling the defensive front, then we can use PA and shred the defense with our TEs. Problem is we don't have the personnel, nor a creative play caller. We are very predictable in the run game and make no effort at continuing to establish it even if it is effective. It can be difficult the way our defense is playing, but at the same time, the OC clearly isn't committed to running the ball in general.
  3. Why Are You a Husker Fan?

    I married a Husker fan who was born and raised here. I think he thinks he has created a 'Husker Monster' as I'm now more passionate about Husker football than he is! Lol

  6. Why Are You a Husker Fan?

    Both of my parents are from Nebraska, so I was raised a fan. I visited the state a lot as a kid and went to some games. I usually go to a game a year these days.

    I feel like it is more likely that he'll be the next Husker coach than not, but it is far from a given. Even if he decides to stay at UCF, he'll have to deal with this stuff every year as long as he is successful because UCF will never be seen as a final destination spot by the national media.

    He said that's just how Nebraska fans are and told a story about Osborne signing autographs. He said it didn't distract him. I think people are reading too much into it. He really didn't dog the fans for being there.

    #1 & #2 and ditto to Landlord. Ive lived away from the state for almost 25 years and I will always be proud to fly the flag on Saturdays, wear my colors and sport the license plate frame in the car.

    Mike Riley is literally (I think anyway) the only head football coach that DOESN'T understand that concept.

    That's all football is, numbers and leverage.
  14. Why Are You a Husker Fan?

    I became a Nebraska fan growing up in a family of Nebraskans, being indoctrinated into the tribe and the social identity of the whole thing. I continue to be a Nebraska fan because the university keeps giving me reasons to be proud of it, and because I actually believe in ideas like, "Not the victory but the action", and, "In the deed the glory". And because it's entertainment.

    This thread does two things: 1) makes me laugh and 2) makes me say, "Duh." I saw all this, as did a few others, from the beginning. I posted comments here about how I "hoped" that Mike Riley would have success. I wanted him to succeed. But hopes and wants mean less than a hill of beans when the person you want to succeed is doing things that ultimately guarantee failure. For example, Mike Riley's "running" game. Too often Nebraska is in 10 personnel (4 WRs, 0 TEs, and 1 RB) and trying to run the ball against 6-7 defensive players. This isn't me claiming to be some X's and O's guru, this is me looking at the offensive and defensive formation and being able to count to seven. Mike Riley talks a lot about wanting to run the football, but he's schematically incompetent when it comes to the X's and O's of actually running the ball. Nebraska is currently 4-7 because Mike Riley is doing here in Lincoln, the things that DIDN'T work in Corvallis. Soft, pathetic, weak, pass-first, mentality.

    It sounds simple but they need new soap. Direct them to Duke Cannon https://dukecannon.com/soaps I haven't been on Facebook since I started showering with Naval Supremacy so it must work. The description on the packages for various products: Productivity He doesn't wear skinny jeans or listen to Coldplay. Duke Cannon could change a tire by the time he was three and was cleaning his own shotgun by the age of seven. Duke Cannon does more by 8 AM than most men accomplish all day. Accomplishment Duke Cannon doesn't wear scarves, and he's never ordered a damn veggie burger. He'd rather be on a John Deere lawn mower than a 3PM conference call. For his senior year shop class, Duke Cannon built a second story addition to his parents' house. He got an A. We commemorate this accomplishment and the others of hard-working men with this superior grade bar soap. Naval Supremacy Duke Cannon doesn't dine with vegans and he could give a damn about your new iPad. Duke Cannon comes from a different era - an era when men had a greater purpose than building spreadsheets and spending their Saturdays shopping for the perfect pair of chinos.
  17. ** Scott Frost megathread all things SF***

    I can't see the video but does he go on to give praise to Nebraska fans or is it complete annoyance and he ends it at that? I mean I get being annoyed you have to stay focused on a great historic season, keep your players, coaches, and even yourself focused on the rest of the season as you chase perfection. now the other sides season is done and has been done for a month and the most exciting part of our season comes when the games are all over and everyone enters the off season, and we want a Nebraskan to come back and try and save this program. Given how passionate our fan base is, which has be our curse, yet our greatest positive and only reason for current relevance, this is what happens when the elephant in the room isn't just answered with an official announcement. yes I get its not how work is done, but anyone else think it's possible Frost and UCF would be more focused and have less distractions, such as NU fans at his games waving signs, if NU came out announced Riley would not be returning and Frost announce he's the next NU head coach and would be finishing out the entire season and bowl game with UCF? This of course if rumors are true Frost is close to a done deal with Nebraska.

    Disturbing is not a word I would use. Slightly annoying and understandably indicative of A) lowered expectations in our fanbase and B) the fact that a huge portion of our fanbase only follows the football team very casually and just doesn't actually care all that much? Sure. It's definitely those things.

    100% correct. That is LITERALLY what @Husker2019 said. I've always respected you and hoped that it was no big deal so much so that I posted the video all over social media painting you out to be a bad guy.
  20. Penn State Post-Game Pressers

    I think the very definition of "irony" is #21 Lamar Jackson criticizing anyone else of playing "soft." Not saying he's wrong, but look in the mirror first.

    When aliens come, no doubt looking for a lost Diaco, they'll be welcomed to humanity by that thread.
  22. DC Candidate List

    Justin Wilcox hasn't been the Wisconsin DC for a couple of years as he is the HC at Cal who blew out Washington at the earlier part of the season.

    It's far from the only place we act stupid as well.......... (casts awkward glance at the Scott frost super thread)
  24. Kalu Appears to Spit at Fan

    Kalu is more mature than the person who taped/posted the video...noway that spit was intentional...that person is just being soft
  25. Kalu Appears to Spit at Fan

    Looks like its been resolved. From FB:
  26. Kalu Appears to Spit at Fan

    100% correct. The Nebraska fanbase is LITERALLY the ONLY fanbase in ALL of college football who acts "stupid" on social media.
  27. Kalu Appears to Spit at Fan

    Its Twitter. It's for people who think 141 characters constitutes a book. That's why they raised the limit, to attract people who might read two books.
