  2. I don't think that's really fair at all. Their abilities as a passer are not really even close, as was pretty evident this year.

  3. I don't think he's taking a scholarship from anyone, as those scholarships are good for one academic year. It's not like Frost could have taken that scholarship and given it to someone else to use this spring semester.

  4. Last season Adrian was a very efficient deep passer and it was "Adrian needs to stop trying to hit a home run every play and learn to take the singles that are there." Now that he completed 70 percent of his passes and showed real growth in reading coverages, it's "Adrian can't throw deep." He needs to take better care of the ball, but this dude can't win with some of you.

  5. Husker fans: Getting rid of Pelini will let the better athletes play Husker fans, later: These Banker defenses suck and there isn't any change in who's playing Judgement: Husker fans were wrong. Husker fans: Pelini is a terrible recruiter Husker fans, later: /realize that recruiting got significantly worse after he left Judgement: Husker fans were wrong. Husker fans: Winning nine games each year is easy, a drunk monkey could do it. Husker fans, later: Why can't we even have a winning record? Judgement: Husker fans were wrong. Hu

  6. The most important stat line @ Rutgers: 2 ints; 3 fumbles, 2 lost for a total of 4 turnovers. If he does that against a good team not playing their 2nd and 3rd string QBs the outlook on Martinez going into the offseason is much different.

  7. No staff changes. Friendships are more important than winning to Frost. Im done with him after this season if its the same ole s#!t. I would have given him more time if he would have made the nexessary staff changes, but he dug his own grave with this one.

  8. AM has been the worst downfield passing QB in the B1G and one of the worst in the nation the last 2 years. I think he fits the couldn't part just fine.

  9. Martinez will still be a junior in 2021, and we aren't asking him to play WR so that's quite different.

  10. Last night I re-watched the Rutgers game, for the first time. Without the stress of winning or losing, Adrian looked really good. He seems to do some awkward things that other top Qbs do not do. His straight run to the sideline was really odd. Sliding short of the first down vs. Purdue. His fumbles in the Rutgers game were after great runs. I think it is all mental for him right now. If the pieces around him can help him relax and take pressure off, he will be very special again.

  11. Projecting your nonsense onto @funhusker and @BigRedBuster is not fair to them. You posted the transphobic tweets from Ben Shapiro and Abigail Shrier, own up to it. Asking questions in good faith about this subject is not transphobic. Hyperbolic fear-mongering, on the other hand, is. I don't believe that any of us on this board are bona fide experts on gender dynamics, and it can be a complex issue. So we can have a discussion about the gender spectrum, civil rights policy, what it means for sports and restrooms, etc, without being alarmist, offensive, or disrespectful (that discus

  12. Only disappointment in keeping the staff in place is special teams. I'll hold out hope they make it Ruud or Dawson's responsibility. An analyst can help, but we need someone that has on the field responsibilities for their performance in practice and on game days. In my experience you need someone to "own" the task, in order to see results, and frankly it's not possible for an analyst to own this task.

  13. If you've watched the Husker program for 35 years and can't tell that Frost has a focus on getting the offensive line to be the strength of the offense then I would take a look a your diagnostic methodology.

  17. It seemed like most of the fumble issues against Rutgers had to do with the sleeves. I don't think he fumbled again after they cut them off. Or maybe he was just paying more attention but it did get better.

  19. Also can't blame McCaffrey for transferring at all. If that's what ultimately happens that is. The sad thing is with Mills departure he would have easily been the best returning ball carrier on the entire team. My confidence in Frost, Lubick and Verduzco at this moment isn't at what I'd call at an all time high so there's that also. Can't blame him.

  21. I’m really not gonna lose sleep over this one. More potential at another position than actual results at his current one. The dude couldn’t even throw 15-20 yards downfield. Noodle arm.

  22. @Gorillahawk And Martinez seemed to have little trouble finding Stanley Morgan on deep balls in his freshman year. Kinda funny how the problem started when Stanley left, huh? But a lot of people here prefer the explanation that Verduzco cast a voodoo mind control spell on Adrian to turn him into a terrible QB.

  23. Whats he supposed to say? We sucked and I'm not happy with our current players? That's a good way to lose the locker room. I'd say that Frost is a lot more honest with his players in small position group or individual meetings then he is when he talks about them to the media.

  24. Unfortunate that our fan base has become a circular firing squad in light of current circumstances. We should be on the same team. Confronting the state of our program is not meant to be a lecture. The last 4 seasons are more powerful proof of our situation than anything I can say. If we have to squint to find success or progress, than we need to ask ourselves whether this is moving in the right direction. Message boards are poor venues for showing sincerity. i genuinely hope this works out, not because it proves someone right and someone wrong, but because we will

  26. You are missing the point of the post. It has nothing to do with player retention - which I agree with you was bad under Riley. Perhaps go back and read the post I was responding to so you have more context concerning my post.

  27. It's possible. It's also possible that, as reported above, McCaffrey is not planning on going into the Portal right away so Frost is still hoping he'll end up staying. I just don't think there are really any conclusions to be drawn from what he said with any certainty.

  28. Eh ... you're pretty much always going to give the impression that a player is here for the long term. Until they've said differently.

  30. Interesting rabbit hole. The Nebraska Aggies were at one time coached by Robert C. Russell, and appear to have had some connections to Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity (although that may just be a reference to Russell). They represented the School of Agriculture from UNL's East Campus Ag School per this Daily Nebraskan article from 1933. They played teams like Doane, Harvard (NE), Nebraska Wesleyan, York, etc. They also had a basketball team.

  31. Idealism and realism routinely come into conflict and I typically call things as I see them. Perhaps I missed the 7 year plan for success that Coach Frost presented 3 years ago and am thus premature in my program assessment. Having watched this program for 35 years, I wish I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. Believe me, I want this to work more than anything. Scott Frost is a terrific ambassador for our program and a great competitor. Sometimes though, circumstances dictate another direction. I just feel that momentum in a variety of areas is heading towards anothe

  32. Trump should have in the very beginning for masks and medical gowns. Didn’t realize the US ran low on Oxygen, will have to check that out. He did do that for Vent’s which we ended up not needing fortunately. BTW..I don’t feel superior to you, though you thinking that way may be the reason for the animosity towards me. I figure everyone here is no better or worse than anyone else. Just different opinions and ideas on how to approach things.

  33. True, but there were decisions made that led to him ending up in that position that he could control. I'm not saying slide necessarily (this one might have been right at the 1st down marker?), but not putting yourself in spots where you're being flipped or a defender has a clean shot at the ball can be done most of the time. Easier said than done for sure though.

  35. If he cleans up the fumbles and we give him receivers who can get open, a line that can consistently pass pro/snap him the ball, and backs who can take the rushing burden off of him, I truly think Adrian is an all-conference quarterback. He is extremely talented.

  36. Those were never part of the paper Republicans are trying to retcon into a "plan." 1.6 million people were vaccinated yesterday - great! That shows the determination of the American people to put this mess behind us. Because despite any coherent response from trump, the actual medical professionals and those who care, community to community, are trying to get this done. Imagine how much better this all could have been if we'd had a strong top-down organizational effort from Day One.

  38. So why did Biden have to invoke the Defense Supply Act to prioritize logistics? Shouldn't Trump have done that long time ago if his plan was so brilliant? Also, why is there no reserves for a 2nd wave of doses? The fact that the Act hadn't been invoked and the fact that there were no planned logistics for a second wave of vaccinations shows the plan was half cooked at best.

  39. The whole Noon thing...that's the latest from QAnon social media users. They say that since Biden swore in at 1148am and that it was 12 min early from when the 20th Amendment defines the time of power transfer, that Biden isn't really president. What a bunch of buffoons.

  45. How many fumbles did he have? Lets be real though..he didn’t have to make many difficult throws. Everything we did this year was underneath. Probably due to WR personnel being bottom three in the conference & a mix that Adrian might not be on target for the long bomb
