  2. Huskers After Graduate Transfer Cornerback

    That could be. If I recall, Shaquem Griffin's stats were not very good pre-Frost, and Suh's state were not very good pre-Pelini.

    $hits about to get real folks.
  4. Best Win of the Pelini Era

    It ended on a really promising note, but man that offense was hard to watch. Just went back to check: 25 points a game, 4.0 yards per carry and 6.8 yards per pass attempt. That was a grind. But people were tuning in just to watch Suh. One of the best individual efforts in the history of college defense.
  5. Solich - couple questions

    IMHO, had TO stayed on, we'd have another NC or 2 at a minimum. He was that good and so was the talent.
  6. Solich - couple questions

    Good info. Which leads me to my original question - if there had been no "promise" and Solich was simply content to stay on as an assistant indefinitely (like Tenopir, Mcbride, etc.) and waited until TO REALLY wanted to retire before taking over as head coach, might NU be looking at a few more national championships with TO still at the reins in '98,'99, 2000, 2001? That's the biggest issue I have with Solich. His impatience with wanting to be a head coach, which lead to this promise between he and Osborne back in 1991, ultimately ended an outstanding head coaching career of the best of all time in TO.....and way too soon, in my opinion.
  7. Solich - couple questions

    Osborne had a quadruple bypass in the 80s and had just had some kind of cardiological diagnosis in 1997 that raised flags, so if there was any pressure from wife and family to step down, that would have been a good time to reflect. And given the chance to go out on top, the timing would have made the decision a little easier. And, as some suggest, announcing his retirement right before the NC deciding bowl game may well have tipped the coaches vote that year. Frank Solich loved the young ladies, and I'll bet he's insulted that some posters here didn't think he could close the deal.
  8. Best Win of the Pelini Era

    2008 Colorado gets my vote. The Henery FG followed by Suh's interception return was just plain awesome.

  11. Huskers After Graduate Transfer Cornerback

    Shaquem Griffin says hello!
  12. Solich - couple questions

    I believe that this was in TO's book. He had mentioned turing over the reins to the team in 96, but asked Frank if he could stay one more year. Won in 1997 and didnt thing it was "right" to go back on his word. Frank had issues like all people do. His biggest problem was coming in right behind a guy who had the best run ever in college football......A hard act for anyone to follow. Carl Crawford playing baseball didn't help IMHO either. I'll admit. I wanted Frank or his staff fired after the 7-7 season. He fired some staff and came back very well the next season. And still got fired. I think that was BS. He made adjustments and deserved more time. With that being said, I'd like Frank to come back on campus. Get the recognition he deserves. From playing for NU, coaching for several NC teams and then HC. He earned it.

    Agreed, also worth noting that USC was up big in that game so I’m sure they were content with giving up a 8-12 yard gain and the corner just ended up looking stupid. He’s a big WR as well, I’m sure the corner didn’t think he’d run any route that efficiently.
  14. Solich - couple questions

    I thought I have read TO was going to go out after ‘96, but after not winning another title he somewhat felt obligated to return in ‘97 to coach those seniors through a title - I think Wistrom and Jason Peter returning for their senior season helped influence his decision to return. It would be interesting to learn in-depth how this all transpired because his “promise” to Solich was before the title runs, wonder what, or if, differences took place to create and complete that dynasty run.

    Should be more attrition at the LB position. We will have more players get down on the depth chart and see the writing on the wall and leave. Although, we will be rotating a lot at that position. Good luck to Mr. Ward and hopefully he succeeds at his next school and life.
  16. JUCO DT Tony Fair

    I'm just looking for juan fair shot to get this guy.
  17. ** 2018 Opponent Previews: Colorado (Game 2) **

    That CB is playing 8 yards off...that's some pathetic Diaco crap right there. When CBs play that far off they have almost no shot at covering a WR. The WR is running almost full speed and the CB is still in his backpedal which is maybe half speed or less so when the WR makes his cut, the defender has no chance. That's why all DBs should play up closer to the receivers. Press them. Bump them. Make them work to get off the line of scrimmage. It is much easier to run with, and cover, a receiver if you're in their hip pocket the whole time.

    I don't know, personally I think he has overcommitted

  23. Solich - couple questions

    I also feel that TO was feeling emotionally battered over the media's reaction to how he handled the Lawrence Phillips assault.

    Best of luck. Mr Ward GBR!!!
