  1. This sounds like something a "f***ing Hillbilly" would say....

  2. Running out of patience with the cranks on here who continue to actively not read or understand posts about statistical rankings and choose instead to counterargue points no one is making and operate in bad faith. I have never seen a post suggesting things are all-good because of our SP or EPI or FPI ranking or that those don't ultimately need to translate into winning games. People are excited about them because they show things might not be as bad as internet rando crybabies on this board like to suggest.

  3. People wonder why they dont allow more access to practices for fans and media. 1 glimpse at practice and we fired a possible backup QB who is 19 years old and never really been through an offseason camp at this level. Logan's skillset is different than other QB's. He is a state level sprinter, so has some serious wheels. From all accounts he makes good decisions and gets the ball out quick. With talent around him at the skill positions he could be more than effective as QB at this level in our system. That is not to discount Haarberg or say he is better than Masker, but I am not willing

  4. LP was also a victim of severe child abuse when he was young, and is an example of how neglected and abused kids can harbor anger which they can’t control once they get older. I’m not excusing his actions as an adult, but LP was far from “an idiot”. He was an intelligent, well-spoken young man, who treated people well 99% of the time. Unfortunately, he was also a big, strong man who couldn’t control his anger.

  8. If you don't follow the story, don't weigh in with an uninformed opinion. And if you actually did read what's been posted here, you wouldn't be uninformed. There's really not another side to this story. The audit is a freak show by people who know the party is willing to give them cover.

  9. Have you watched any football over the last 20 years?? Eric Crouch in 1999, 2000, and 20001 Tim Tebow in 2008 & 2009 Michael Vick 1999 & 2000 Vince Young 2005 Braxton Miller 2012 & 2013 JT Barrett 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017 I can keep going as there are a lot more examples... the above list of QBs averaged over 10 carries per game in each of the years listed above. A QB who can run is a game changer and absolutely gives teams an edge.

  11. He could easily be in the NFL if he can have one good season. That doesn't mean he would get drafted or even play on gameday, but he's got enough talent to be on a roster somewhere. His number one problem has been the lack of talent around him here... He's not a 4.4 guy either, but he is definitely quicker than he was the last 2 years. And I'd venture to say he's closer to 4.4 than he was to his high school 4.79.

  12. 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

  16. I honestly don't understand why some of you watch or care about this team if you're determined to be negative all the time. Has to be a miserable way to be a sports fan, but to each his own. Very little to take away from this game but I thought it was mostly good signs. The starting defense shut down the backup offense, the starting offensive line moved people, running backs looked good, seem to have more receiving weapons, Smothers and Haarberg each had a couple good moments. Not going to get upset about QBs not having perfect ball placement in 30 mph winds because I'm not an insa

  22. By the way, Martinez last year was actually had noticeably better completion percentage than Lawrence on passes 10-19 yards downfield. Martinez completed 66.7% of those passes. Lawrence completed 57.3% of those passes. The fact that their ypa was pretty close - 11.7 for Martinez, 11.3 for Lawrence - mostly says that Lawrence had much better guys to throw to who could make plays after the catch. Which is the biggest factor in Nebraska's lack of a downfield passing game.

  26. Meh, even with a decent DC, I'd say Callahan's ceiling was lower than Bo's. He was always gonna be an awkward fit at best, no matter who his assistants were. There's a reason why he's stayed away from college coaching, and hasn't exactly been a hot name in head coach searches (other than a brief interim HC stint with the Redskins).

  27. I still have a battered shield in my closet from fighting off the Chinander angry mob. Said from the beginning he has done nothing but steadily improve the D. Glad to see the narrative change.

  28. If the offense improves, the defense will automatically improve. They won't be on the field as much, give our better players more rest, and the opponent will become more predictable in their schemes. I'm not saying the defense hasn't improved, but if the offense can be somewhat better, we will see an even better defense.

  29. It's not that I want Neo-Cons back in charge. I don't want to get into endless budget breaking wars. The issue is she is being ousted for not being loyal to a figure head, not conservative ideals. And that's the danger in it all.

  30. well, let’s hope our 5-6th guys that stuck around and see how they can help us win games by experience, playing time, and age being 21-23 yrs old v the 18-21 yr olds with limited experience on other teams. they came back for reason, I think they know they’re close to being pretty salty as Blackshirts and helping the Cornhuskers as a team get their goals and wins. I’m ready to see this “free” year play out and see how good we can be on D

  31. "Did Colorado’s 2001 upset of Nebraska start the dismantling of the Huskers dynasty?" No. It was a coaching staff that was unwilling or unable to recruit to the level of the Osborne Era. It was the elimination of Prop 48. It was an offense whose time had passed. It was the slow erosion of a championship attitude in the locker room. It was the fact that Solich wasn't half the coach Osborne was. It was an AD that meddled without understanding. It was a thousand little things that led to the demise of Nebraska football. But that wouldn't make a co

  32. Most of what Riley had to work with were recruited by Pelini and had some development under Pelini. Really only Riley's third year would that have been more guys that he recruited and that had "developed" under him for three years. That year we went 4-8 and had one of the worst defenses we've ever had. I'm not saying development doesn't play a part of it. It absolutely does. But it's also hard to quantify. Here's a look at our three leading rushers and receivers over the last six years and who they were recruited by: 2015: Rushing - Pelini, Pelini

  36. The first rule when your receiver is that open is to give them a chance. If you underthrow them by a couple yards at least they still have a chance to catch it and even if they get tackled right away you still have a big play. If you overthrow it by a couple yards you have nothing.

  37. Green jersey AM hype is funny. 1. 0% chance he ever plays in the NFL. 2. He’s not a 4.4 guy. There have been 7 college quarterbacks in the past 30 yrs that have ever been timed under 4.5. Bottom-line. Don’t care about the yards or the completion percentage. AM is 1-13 vs Wiscy, Iowa, NW, OSU, Mich, Col. In 29 career starts, he has beaten 1 team with a winning record. He is who he is. He’s a great kid, and he might be a little better this coming year, but he’s not gonna win ya a lot of big games.

  38. 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.

  40. It's truly bizarre and misguided to want to turn today and today's verdict into a societal reprimand on rioters and looters, in addition to trying to dunk on people who wanted to protest and make their voices heard. This isn't the time or the thread for that kind of stuff. Take it somewhere else.

  42. The outcome is unfortunate and gross, but that is the point of everyone being entitled to a defense. The defense attorney did her job, and she did it very well. The law is clear (in a bad way), and she applied the law in a way protected her client. The law is intentionally written to protect those from false accusations; unfortunately, I think this case has exposed a loophole that needs to be closed. That is on state legislators, not the defense attorney.
