  1. Dear HuskerBoard family, After 16 years of running HuskerBoard, it's time to turn the page. Jump to the last few sentences to find out where HB goes from here. Continue reading for my full "best man" wedding speech. I started HuskerBoard a few years after graduating from UNL in 2003, b/c I was a Husker zealot looking for someone to talk Husker football with while living in KC. I began by creating various profiles and having conversations with myself ... Shortly after, I convinced my old college buddy Eric, to join the schizophrenic conversatio

  5. Gebbia is by all accounts a great kid, a talented quarterback, and a leader on the team. He may be the hardest worker on the roster and poured his heart and soul into winning the job. He’s also a young man who’s just been told that despite all that work, sweat, drive, and leadership, it just wasn’t enough. So he’ll have to watch someone else lead the team this fall. It’s hard to imagine how hard that would be. Cut Gebbia some slack. He’s earned it.

  6. I just wanted to point out that @jessica0 has been on this board since October and already has something like 238 rep points. I've been on here since December of 2005 and have 255 points. It always fascinates me how newbies can come on here and pretty much seem to dominate the board and then become the next "guru" on the board. I mean no harm by this post ... I actually was hoping a few folks would simply +1 this post so I can get out ahead of Jessica on the rep points. Thanks for any +1's. :-)

  7. I heard that they tried to fraudulently acquire a Husker related message board, and then maliciously incited panic by announcing a fake 10am outage. Frost doesn't stand for that kind of crap.

  10. I believe it would behoove Coach Frost to hire me as a consultant for the Nebraska football program. Why you ask? 1). I am very familiar with Nebraska. I had an uncle who lived outside of Union and I cried every time my dad threatened to take the family there for a visit. Still do. 2). I can find Nebraska on a map 3). As a lifelong Iowa State player and fan, I am on intimate terms with losing and futility 4). Everytime I drive by the Gotham exit, I say "I'm Batman" Now that my credentials have been established, here are just a few

  12. Im actually really wondering what goes through your mind when watching this team play? It took me 7 years to fall off the Pelini bandwagon, so Im usually one for giving coaches time, but anyone with a pair of eyes can see that this is NOT good football. And when you break down film its even worse.

  13. I've noticed quite a bit in discussions on both what the offense next year will look like and in recruiting that it's a certainty that Frost needs a "run-first" QB to make his offense work at a high level. Look at the stats, though, and that seems to be a bit of a fallacy. For comparison's sake, let's look at the rushing attempts and completion percentage of QBs at Oregon and UCF during Frost's tenure at both places, and how that might affect how he wants his QB room to look at Nebraska. Frost as WR coach: 2009: Jeremiah Masoli - 12 games/121 attempts (10 att/game) (58% compl

  17. If I was compiling summaries from 247 and taking credit for them, I'd be telling the members here that Jackson Bratton is a legit get for us. I am selective for a reason and thats because 98 percent of the time, I really don't know. My most "insider" moments here go back to the 2010-2011 years and thats because I knew and grew up with the CA kids on the roster, Jason Ankrah, and believe it or not was a point of contact for Curtis Carter during his recruitment. I had to speak to Joni Duff to get clearance for that, because Curtis and I hit it off through FB, which was an NCAA violat

  18. Welp. Here we are again. 4-8, no bowl game, not even remotely ranked. Just like last year. Or... is it? I'm not going to blow sunshine up your behind and tell you that you should be happy with 4-8. But there are many reasons for optimism. Three more years of Adrian Martinez, three more years of Maurice Washington. JD Spielman will be back and badder than ever. In all, 17 of the 28 players in the offensive 2-deep for the Iowa game and 14 of the defensive 2-deep are back. And we've got some talent waiting in the wings. But most of all,

  22. Lee, why did you vote for Michigan for the AP title in 1997 when they had played a worse schedule than Nebraska, eked out a lackluster, asterisked win over a weak #8 Washington State team featuring Ryan Leaf and a cast of nobodies, and after Nebraska had DECISIVELY trounced a #3 Tennessee team featuring Peyton Manning and a cast of future NFL players? FOLLOW-UP: Lee, how many times did you rank Michigan #1 in the final AP ballot in the 1990s? Lee, why do you have such thin skin that you block anyone who disagrees with you on Twitter?

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you guys have done and continue to do so we can have football this fall. Forever a Buckeye! And now - Forever a Husker!

  25. It seems a fair number of you have already given up, waved the white flag and surrendered out of fear. Why even bother playing the game right? Why get out of bed and try something, because it might end badly? Why go outside when there are scary things out there? We should probably just forfeit now because there is a chance something bad happens. Are we going to do that? No we aren't. We are going to create a mad house on Saturday night with or without all of you who are afraid of your own shadow. It will be fun as hell because Memorial Stadium a

  32. Chinander just completed his 3rd season as a coordinator. Twice inheriting awful teams with bad tendencies, full of the last guys recruits for a different scheme. The guys here at NU have had 4 different D coordinators in 5 years, depending on how long they've been in school. That means learning 2/3/4 new schemes while adjusting to new coaches. You don't think the kids at UCF recieved positive habits from this coaching staff they are carrying over this year after they took them from 0-12 to 13-0? It would be nice to inherit a 13-0 crew rather than a 116th ranked 4-

  34. Coach Reggie Davis: It is tough to get complete backs to commit to DONU. Coach Held: Hold my beer! Dude is doing work. Completely changing that RB room in a hurry. Lots of speed and versatility seen from the guys they have targetted. Looks like Frost and Co. are serious about wanting to be able to run the football.

  35. UCF would beat Nebraska 100-0 right now on a neutral field. Scott Frost would immediately be transported to Lincoln on a cloud of magical corn husks wrapped in transcendent glory, cherubim and seraphim flying about his glorious golden locks. Trev Alberts would meet him at the door of the stadium, go to one knee, and give him the keys of the program. The statue of Brook Berringer would wink as Scott walked by. Mike Riley and Bob Diaco would offer themselves as human sacrifices in Scott's honor, but in his munificence he would grant them pardon, and they would live out th

  37. I've learned that our fans and their "eye tests" can't tell the difference between a QB looking good in garbage time against a team whose will is crushed and competitive games. I've also learned fans will be forever obsessed with back ups regardless of if they can actually play better than starters.

  38. on one hand im as frustrated as hell and maddened as he is that these things havent been improving, but on the other i still have a really good amount of trust in his ability or at the very least his insatiable compulsion to fix them. there's no way to fake the emotions that come through in a quick little interview vignette like this. frost will drive himself mad trying to get this team up to snuff. maybe he's not capable of doing it but at the very least no rational person can think he isn't going to give every single ounce of himself trying.
