  1. For me, this season has been very eye opening with regard to the players on the team and player management. While our recruiting hasn't been bad lately, our turnover is absurd. I think most of it makes sense, that is to say I'm not concerned, but I think I had been optimistic than was warranted. My concerns focused a lot on the lines, I regularly came to the board to argue this, but the numbers overall are rough. I'm not going to look at 2019's class yet, but the three classes before that were hit hard. 2015: Many players gone via graduation these are the RS SRs. But for con

  3. In these numbers lies the painful realization that even though we have more 4 and 5 star players on the team, the coaching staff has not been able to get the best out of them whereas Wisconsin, Iowa, and Minnesota seem to be able to get much more from their players. I like Frost and have no doubt he is the best fit for us right now but it is obvious that his supporting cast of coaches are not doing a good job. He needs to evaluate his coaching staff and ask them why they are not able to compete with teams that have much lesser talent. For starters, Verduzco sounds arrogant and incompetent from

  4. I think there might be some surprisingly good results on the recruiting trail as Frost continues. Getting guys like Benhart and Corcoran is big. And Beckton is doing a nice job so far recruiting Florida and Georgia.

  5. JoJo Domann had some pretty pointed comments on the Carriker Chronicles on Wednesday: When ask how he would grade their season so far JoJo said “I’d give us a C.” He went on to say “We’re proficient. We know how to do our jobs...” “We definitely have that next gear that we need to hit as a unit, and that’s going to come with guys filling out, guys being committed, guys being dedicated day in and day out, not just excited to put on the Nebraska uniform on Saturday to run out the tunnel. Guys that are about the process and guys that love football and are hungry, and once we hav

  9. That list really shows the lack of talent this team has. Out of these upperclassmen Jackson's the only one that has a chance to make an all conference team this year and even though his play has improved he still is allergic to contact sometimes.

  10. Position confidence (1-10 scale): QB - 9...premier QB for this system. Has told a lot of "Big Boys" not to waste their time. RB - 8....two studs. Talk of maybe getting one more, which Held has proven he could do. WR - 6.5...sitting at a boom or bust point seems like. If Betts qualifies, two of Manning/Robinson/Bunkley-Shelton commit this moves to a 9/10. If Betts doesn't qualify and/or we miss out on those three this could be a 5/6. TE - 8....I'd honestly pass on taking one and use the scholly elsewhere. 8 is only because we don't need one, so

Fun stats time, total number of Jr or Sr 4 or 5 star players to total on the team: Nebraska 8 out of 20 (DD transfer, Green JUCO, Raridon little playing time) Illinois 6 out of 12 (All 6 upper classman transfered in) Wisconsin 4 out of 9 Iowa 2 out of 7 Minnesota 2 out of 5 (St-Juste Transfer) Northwestern 1 out of 3 Purdue 0 out of 5

  15. You also have to wonder if Frost would have brought in the Riley 4 stars, so while we do have some talent, it’s not talent hand picked to be in Frost’s system. Also 4 of those guys are DBs which is probably are strongest unit! My gut feeling is in 4 years, when we look at the high 3* and 4* guys Frost has brought in, this conversation is going to go very differently.

  18. No absolutely not, that should not be the expectation. I don't ever expect a team who is more talented to get crushed 34-0 by Minnesota. It's unacceptable. Secondly, this is the exact same mantra we here by everyone each time there's a new coach, get Callahan's losers out of here because they don't know what Nebraska was about and we will win titles, get Bo's "toxic" (which was BS) dudes out of here for this great genius who has never won and we will win titles, now get these Riley dudes out of here because they don't love football and won't play hard and we will win titles.

  21. OK, it’s not bowl season yet. Both the Huskers and Hoosiers are getting closer to the magic number to qualify, but they’re not there yet. So until then, we could call Saturday’s game the Fragile Bowl. The state of mind around the Huskers right now is... fragile. Lots of questions. Anything but swagger. And Indiana? They’re doing a bit better this year. But this is a football program that has since 2002... Won 29, Lost 110 conference games. Winning percentage 21%. That’s big time fragile. Indiana always has trouble with a football. They keep wanting to throw the thing at hoops that’s i

  32. So this is the 8 players: Eric Lee, Avery Anderson, Lamar Jackson, John Rairdon, Marquel Dismuke, Matt Farniok, Darion Daniels(first year in program), and Green(who is redshirting). To me it seems like at least this staff is getting the most that they can out of these players.

  33. That could win 9 games right now...... hmmm they probably would have had a way better team but that's besides the point. Even with attrition, just another excuse for you talent excuse people, we still have more star players! We have more stars on the field then Minnesota, Colorado and Indiana. Still you will fall back on talent, which we have more of.

  35. I wonder how many of those players that are left are also the higher rated players. Seems like a lot of players that left are the higher rated ones: Gebbia, POB, Lindsey, KJJ, Avery Roberts, Cam'ron Jones were all 4 stars iirc.

  36. Exactly! Frost has been telling us the knowledge of the assignments is there, which is what you see in practice. The ability to execute (especially on the O-line and linebacker, inside and outside, positions) against high level competition in games is where we are lacking.

  37. I had to look up your reference...pretty sure I didn't see/remember that one... I work with several MAGA types, and while misguided regarding Trump, they all certainly love and respect their Country. Most believe it is the far left that have no respect for America, and want to wipe out most of the Country's history. Perspective/viewpoint differences don't automatically make one side or the other right.

  39. Now that's a different deal if you are 0-5 waching in person during that era. Definitely something to be superstitious about there. Thank you for not going inside in 95. My 0fer has come during a time Nebraska loses at the same rate as changing underwear it seems.

  40. Frost has made it clear in just about every interview that the team has a long ways to go to get to where he wants them. You can have a good practice but still need to improve a lot in toughness and the mental side of the game.

  41. Very 1st game I went to was with my Dad a week after Osborne finally got his first win over Switzer...We lost to Mizery. While I was a student, I mainly took pictures of my cousin playing or sold my tickets for gas money. Last game I watched in person was the 0-19 debacle here in Tempe when Frost was our QB '96?.. I think I'm 0 for my last 5 also..That was one of the reasons I didn't go inside the stadium when we had that nail biter over Florida here back in '95...Just tailgated with my Siberian Husky and saw almost a dozen old classmates (Holdrege High)...Brought

  42. IMHO, this game will tell us more about this team than any one this season. I think it will also tell us the trajectory of this season leading into next. If we come out flat/lose after the a$$ kicking from Minnie and a 2 week bye we are in trouble. And will show Frost has a bigger mess on his hands and even less answers than he had starting the season. Players might start doubting the staff and process. Win (and I think it's possible), it shows that Frost can get the guys ready, they trust the process and each other. Frost and Co can adjust. Can teach. If the freshman play and do wel

  43. As a coach, you also don't want to tell the media and the fans, "Yeah, our guys looked like s#!t all week and we're going to lose this next game." so I'm not sure what exactly fans think they are supposed to say.
