  2. Wow some of you watched a different Spring Game than me today! If you didn't see the O Line moving people off the ball, if you didn't see a group of hungry running backs, if you didn't see a more nimble, more decisive, better-throwing Adrian Martinez today, I think maybe you watched a different game than I watched. If you're not excited about the running back room, you maybe caught some other show. Dunno. I get that some of you don't live in Lincoln, and that a bright, sunny broadcast may have made you believe this was idyllic football weather. I live in Lincoln, and I

  3. The biggest mistake you can make is to read too much into a spring game. None of the spring games are live football like a regular season game and the practices are scattered throughout. It's mostly about player development and you can clearly see some development happening among the players. I've seen teams that won 11 games during a season that looked really sloppy, slow, and not good at all and I've seen the opposite where they looked like they were in mid-season form and the head coach ended up being fired down the road.

  5. https://streamable.com/njn48h Every QB in every game misses some throws, but very few QBs can hit opposite hash to sideline dots with a lineman getting pushed back into them. And add on to that he looks at least as good running as he ever has.

  6. I thought he looked really good. Physically he is where he needs to be. Scott said he looks like a 4.4 guy out there. He was right. 4.4 easy. His throws downfield were pretty damn good, and it is nice to see him be able to throw in there without having to aim it like he had to with smaller receivers in the past. The thing that I liked the most was seeing him look comfortable which I don't think I saw since his freshman year. He looked in command and I think that is the difference. Okay but back to his speed. I'd bet three big time, "Taylor Martinez esque" runs from him this year.

  7. There is some good hand on hand combat going on up front, but the “thud” practices and no blitzing promises nothing to me. I take nothing away from these videos except to see what kind of shape our boys are in. We look bigger and stronger than last year

  8. My guess is we are anywhere from 15-30 spots higher ranked in our recruiting classes than 95% of these teams ... which then points even more to the lack of ability to develop.

  9. Hey @Roxy15 - I merged your 'pasta' thread with this 'entrees' thread. Similar to the post I made in your "Vegetables" thread, I don't think we need different threads for various types of entrees. They should all be consolidated into one thread. Otherwise, one could argue that there could be threads for entrees: pasta, entrees: steak, entrees: chicken, entrees: tacos, etc., and that would just get a little out of hand. Thanks!

  14. Eh, that might have been the defense with the best statistics but that doesn't make it the best defense (which you didn't say it was). On a yards-per-play basis, the offenses we faced that year were the worst we've faced in the last decade. All of Bo's defenses held opponents under their season average yards per play while the 2016 defense did not. And last year's defense was actually the first since Bo was fired to do that. YEAR - YPP - OYPP - DIFF 2003 - 4.3 - 5.15 -(0.85) 2004 - 5.0 - 4.91 - 0.09 2005 - 4.6 - 4.85 -(0.25) 2006 - 5.2 - 5.38 -(0.18) 2007

  16. Was anyone else bored watching the "game" yesterday? I really tried to get into it, but I just couldn't get attached. Maybe the whole no tackling in the first half affected my enthusiasm?

  19. Haha. This might be the most realistic outlook going into a season that I can remember. Peoples expectations truly appear to be more on the "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me" level. Can't disagree. A ton of potential, but I feel like I have said this since Frank got fired. Thought the D had the potential to be close to 2009/2010 good. This was prior to Honas going out. Regardless of potential back-ups, he's not a guy "next man up" easily replaces. Oh well, into the off season. Again.

  23. I'm a little surprised by some of the negativity I'm reading here. It was windy as all get out here in the Lincoln-Omaha areas. Don't sweat the passing game woes. For the skill positions, I'm optimistic about the RB and WR groups. The O-ine should be better in '21 and that will help immensely. Also need a little luck on the injury front. Martinez mostly threw well, especially considering the wind, and he looks quicker. Granted, knowing he wasn't going to get popped, may have helped. But overall, if he holds onto the ball, A-Mart should be pretty darn good thi

  24. That's what I was looking for! My thoughts after watching the highlights. The Red would have scored a lot more points if tackling was allowed the first half. AM's stats should have been better drops and poor route running hurt. He did have a couple bad throws. Backup QB's look athletic, but neither looks ready to play meaningful minutes yet. If QB's were allowed to be tackled they would have gained a lot more yards. The starting offensive line opened up some big holes. RBs looked good.

  26. It was boring. The first half was useless and those guys (most of them) have played a million snaps. They were looking to get it done with, go shower, and head home for a nap and then a night out of partying.

  27. Definitely, offense has been bad late innings and bullpen hasn't been exciting. Going to need to perform better tomorrow, especially we have two games against them this coming weekend. Gonna be a tough month. Don't worry about hosting or making the tournament, let's focus on winning games right now.

  28. TBH, I tried staying engaged in the game and just couldn't do it. I noticed Nutmasher on one play and other than that it was boring and mostly uninformative. It doesn't matter how the team looks against each other. We should know more by around October.

  29. Because they look at the throw to Ervin that didn't connect since Ervin slowed down on the route and the fun play to the LT. He looked more like his Freshman season from a build perspective.

  31. With the RBs, it's like we've got plenty of guys with potential, but the question is who can stay healthy? Remember that Yant is pretty much the only guy who was healthy all through spring. Hard not to like him, especially considering that we got him as a walk-on, but he's probably not gonna be an every down kind of back. I'm thinking this fall is probably gonna be RB by committee, where we're just plugging in whoever is healthy at the time. Can we find consistency that way?

  33. This should be Frost's best team since coming to Nebraska. Hopefully a "breakout" season to a bowl game and keep building from there. LOS looked a lot better than it has in years. Finally some depth getting built at the LOS. Passing game will be better this year WITHOUT Wandale Robinson. I know it was vanilla, but you saw a downhill attack.

  35. Report it. Otherwise I'll post what I want, how I want, when I want within the rules of the board. Curious that you have two rising stars of the Republican Party going out on tour to rebuke anyone who didn't try to subvert our democracy and when that information is posted you feel the need to call it "trolling". Wouldn't your energies be better spent trying to counter these people? That is of course if you disagree with them.

  36. The Athletic NFL podcast had line-play guru Brandon Thorn on today to discuss line prospects and Jaimes was the first guy he mentioned as a sleeper. Full interview is here and he starts talking Jaimes at the 5:00 mark. I'm not going to transcribe all of it but some highlights: "A little bit undersized guy; 6'5, barely 300 pounds and below the 34-inch arm-length threshold teams want ... but he's very athletic. His foot-quickness is certainly there, not just the foot-quickness but the patterns that he's executing in his pass set are very efficient. His hands are very good. He's consi
