  2. Frost finally did whatever everyone always says he should do and didn't do any coach speak or talk about good practices or provide any quotes and now everyone is mad that Frost was short and seemed angry. It's almost as if Frost can't win no matter how he handles press conferences...

  4. i think it's time we stop with the "what did we learn" threads and just go with "WTF was that" threads instead.

  5. Pregame: “we’re going to get smoked by 50” Postgame: “we lost by 7.. we suck” I know we have some serious O line and special teams issues but if that game doesn’t give you a bit of pride and hope then you’re tainted.

  6. Alright after reading lots of posts and getting more and more mad I am going to vent a little bit. Yes yesterdays game was a bit of a embarrassment. But you just cant Judge a season off of the first game. Now I do agree our QB does suck. Our defensive line I thought showed some very good improvement IMO. But for ppl or article writers calling for frost to go that's just childish and all your doing is wanting attention. You cant fire a coach just after 3 seasons and for how much we are paying him that would be irresponsible. No-one said it was going to be a overnight fix like what some ppl where hoping for. There is only so much the coaches can do and what it it boils down to is the kids and how hard they want to work and how bad they want to win. I do think part of the problem is that its the B.S. transfer portal I say if your commit to a school you are to stay at least 2 seasons. If you cant stand a coach yelling at you, cursing at you, or pushing you harder and you quit because of that. How are you gonna make it through life? Also if your gonna transfer just because your not starting or seeing enough snaps and you think it will be better at another school. I would say to that player is to think again about it. Some people are thinking that we need a new coach every 5 years and hope that will fix it to them I say no. Your doing nothing but wasting money and your not going to change anything in that short amount of time. I will say it again the coaches can only do so much, it boils down to the kids. Now I do agree we need to make some staff changes, but I really dont think we need a new head coach. Its only been 3 years.

  8. Our special teams cost us a win against a Top 5 team. Our O-Line coaching is a hot mess…supposedly we have the kids but they can’t block s***. Our 2-minute offense is craptacular. Our defense is going to give us hope, and our special teams will continue to rip it away. All while our offense shows up *just enough* to not bring suspicion to itself.

  10. You're takes are bad and you should feel bad. We hung with the #3 team all game. We don't suck. Just discipline and special teams that hurt us (yet again). mentally weak is laughable, this team brang it the whole game and kept popping back at a superior team.

  12. Peters has no one to throw to now that Izbezwjewbo is gone. They will have one threat in the slot and a decent RB. Peters in the Pistol is a disaster waiting to happen. Husker DL might not get a pass rush but they won't get run on either. AM will do his typical 70% completion rate with 250 yards passing and 75 yards rushing and account for 3-4 TD's and people will still b!^@h that he sucks. NU 40 Illinois 17 But it will be a boring type of game.

  13. Per Sean Callahan the team is over 90% vaccinated. Made a lot of gains in the last two weeks. Frost and staff pushed it hard.

  14. If it wasn't for the covid year sicherman and hixon would be seniors, jurgens would be a junior, piper and benhart would be sophomores and everyone of them was redshirted. The coaches have had plenty of time with these guys.

  16. I would say running the option has also been a legitimate offensive thing over two games. Both Martinez and Smothers were successful with it. Keep doing it.

  18. I heard Damon make this point on the radio and it stuck with me. There is notable lack of trust between players and coaches. Especially on offense. Morrison is told he has an awesome camp and is in the mix for the top spot, he doesn't get a carry. Rahmir is not brought up at all, becomes the lead back in crunch time. Betts is told he has an awesome camp, doesn't play a snap outside special teams. Frost wants to be a physical downhill running team, passes on 3rd and short. Frost wants to cut down on the QB runs to keep AM healthy, AM runs 5+ more times than any of the RBs. Frost's words are empty and players know it. I'm not surprised most of our attrition comes from one side of the ball. There is no consistency on what they want the offense to be, he never puts in motion the words that come out of his mouth.

  21. That's a load of crap. If we are mentally week we get blown out... You know the things we saw under Pelini and early in Frost's era. This team didn't give up.

  24. Some folks, apparently including Scott Frost, wanted to duck Oklahoma and all the Game of the Century attention to protect the program. At the end of the day, this game was good for the program.

  25. If Frost only wins 4 games this year how can you justify a 5th? Like really? That shows other coaches hey 4 years show us some progress. Any coach worth a lick could manage that assuming we continue to pay 5+ mil a year.

  26. It’s Fordham. What was there to learn? Illinois just got beat by UTSA. UCLA just beat the pants off LSU and they only threw the ball 16 times. What I learned is that until Nebraska becomes PHYSICAL….it’s not going to happen the way we want it to.

  27. Usually I dont care what color a team wears for home or away. With recent pressers though I am worried Buffalo coming out in a dark color could cause Frost to lose half the gameplan

  30. Let me guess. "That was a great interview with Scott Frost. It seems like he has a game plan to turn it around and there's been some unfortunate things happen the last 3 years that's made it tougher. I'm sure he's so happy he hasn't been playing in the SEC. The SEC is so much tougher and better that he would never have one a single game and all the losses would be by 50+ points. We all know the Big Ten dreams of being as good as the SEC but, they just don't have that SEC speed and the awesome coaches of the SEC. We all want Nebraska to be good again. But, unfortunately, they don't play in the SEC so they will never be as good as they once were. Now, out to our field reporters to talk about how great the SEC is."

  32. I'm going to the game in Champaign-Urbana and really considering bringing along a mask. I am vaccinated but I have a pregnant wife who is vaccinated and a 9 year old. So I'll probably be masked up.

  35. GOOD - Martinez balled out. Maybe the best game of his career given the circumstance - The Defense played well; we really needed an earlier stop on OU's last drive. - Linebackers played particularly well today. Good pass coverage from the secondary - Rahmir was a bright spot. Absolutely GREAT to see Betts and Manning. Screw practice...these guys are gamers. BAD - Our Special Teams is the worst collective group I have ever seen in college. Not just NU's worst...the worst of any program I have ever watched. - Greg Austin is a complete bum. He cannot coach and our O Line was pretty poor at picking up any type of stunt or blitz - Our one minute offense is bad. Like we were shocked to have a chance to tie it...and threw up on ourselves. - Losing Ervin...I hope the kid gets well soon. Overall I'm proud of the team. We HAVE TO beat MSU to legitimize this performance today.

  37. One hell of a game by Martinez. Kept us in the game against a great defense, and put us in a position to tie it up with one minute to go.

  39. holy crap. Some of you probably should actually listen to the full press conference and not just talking heads on the forum and twitter. Yes, he said that they changed their front and that isn't what the planned out, but they did have contingences in place to go against a 4 man front, and they practiced it. Just not as much as the 3 man front. And, the hell, with the showing up at noon thing? That just sounds like sour grapes. As many have stated, they have morning practice, and if he isn't showing up till noon. who is the guy that looks like Scott in all the practice videos? To give Dumas the benefit of the doubt, maybe during the summer they didn't show up until Noon, but it is summer time. Listen, Scott has not done the job we all have wanted him to do, but this piling on s#!t is getting old.

  40. So what he's saying is, he's not a good enough coach to know how to make adjustments based on what the other team is doing. At least it's true: the second the coaches aren't prepared for what the other team is throwing at us, the team falls apart.

  42. I'm gonna be honest, I didn't read the OP, but being I'm season 4, we should of put the hammer down on Illinois w/ a back-up qb. All the talk and still nothing to show it actually improved

  45. That level of authoritarianism might be justified if it completely kept you from catching it or spreading it, but it doesn't. Until that silver bullet exists you won't be able to know who on the team was/wasn't actually spreading anything. I struggle to find the rationality and common sense in forcing something to happen wouldn't guarantee a result while increasing risk in other areas. But maybe we just differ on that.

  46. We endured a similar situation over 20 years ago, and the right decisions were made but we took way too long to recommend the appropriate changes back then. This time it was far easier to get to a quick consensus - three years of steady embarrassment on and off the field certainly helped. Enjoy the season. The program is in good hands - no money will be wasted this time. Expect exciting and positive news releases on 11/27 and 12/3 with regards to changes and upgrades. GBR!

  47. Ok teach you go ahead and believe putting the time in doesn't matter. I don't know if they show up late or not but if they do it absolutely makes a difference full stop.
