  1. Hats off to Adrian Martinez today. I thought he played a very solid game during an extremely shaky year. He lost his starting job this season, split time today with Luke, and still completed 18/20 passing and added yards on the ground with a score. He also had a long run called back for a holding penalty. He battled terrible snaps all day, putting him in bad positions to make a play. He never made a stink after losing the job to Luke and he seems to be such a solid team guy. This is the guy I want leading our team. When he is rolling and confident, he is extremely hard to stop. Yes, he had a very costly fumble during a crucial part of the game, but that guy played his a$$ off for us when the chips were ALWAYS stacked against him. He was as solid today as it gets for the Huskers this year. Well done.

  2. This is what the 90s looked like. Dominating Offensive Lines, a fleet QB (although Martinez is a better passer than our QBs back then), the Option confusing opponents, a rabid and attacking defense, backups playing in the third quarter when we're up by 30+ points. And Scott Frost on the sidelines. I guess that part is the same.

  4. Frost finally did whatever everyone always says he should do and didn't do any coach speak or talk about good practices or provide any quotes and now everyone is mad that Frost was short and seemed angry. It's almost as if Frost can't win no matter how he handles press conferences...

  6. to be honest I don't give two $hits about them having practices or analysts doing crap. There's worse things that could've been done. Looking at you Baylor, Penn State, Michigan State. I just find it funny that this is something being investigated.

  7. Enough with this ridiculous notion that the best path forward for our program as we stand here right now is to start over. While it is true that Frost is responsible for the entirety of what we see on the field, we can't have our cake and eat it too. You have to look at the whole picture and you have to compare it to 2017/18. The fact is, this team is light years more competitive than it was 2 years ago. The fact is, Frost is a HUGE reason for that. He came in green, he took some HUGE lumps, he made changes, he grew as a coach, and what we are seeing today is the direct result of that. He has a team that loves him and goes out there and fights HARD every week. There are still holes. Special teams.. Woof. But, he has shown over and over again that he will fix that. But credit him for the rest, man. Credit him for the guys he brought in to allow us to be competitive this year. Credit him for changing the makeup of the athletes on the team to fit into the Big10, etc. Part of the reason people are so are upset that we lost to Michigan St because it was "supposed" to be a win at the beginning of the season. And that is true, but St is looking to be a better team than we thought they were a month ago. The good news is, most of the teams we have chalked up to losses look a lot more beatable now in turn. We have a get right game here with NW. We need to make sure we make it a get right game. If the boys are committed to Scott and this season, they will be there for it. I no longer worry about them not showing up nearly as much as I used to, another thing I am thankful Frost has changed. From there, we see chinks in the armor all over at Michigan, OSU, Minnesota and Wisconsin. Hell, OSU may not even have enough guys to field a team by the time Day gets done running them out of town one by one. So, we go out and play those teams like we belong there and all of the sudden, the season doesn't look so dire. I suppose if we meltdown and lose our way to the end, there may be no choice but to make a change, but we owe it to the program to let it play out. There is good progress being made here, starting over should be reserved for the apocalypse.

  12. I have a feeling people will spend all week on this board talking about the reason we won this game being McCaffrey making the difference. And don't get me wrong, he did play well. But our defense won this game. We haven't seen many displays of awareness and individual athleticism on defense like Williams' punch/scoop/score on this team in the past several years. That play won the game, in my opinion. I could not believe Kade Warner dropped a "gimme" TD pass in the end zone...the game wouldn't have actually been a last-second nail-biter if he just hauls in that catch that hits him right in the numbers. It is so fun to finally be able to break down a game that we actually won. Penn State is not as bad as their 0-3 record showed heading into this game; despite Parsons opting out and a couple injuries they still have four star talent all over in their program.

  16. • This team is making big strides. • The strength and fight in particular are light years beyond any team since Pelini. • Frost should stay. We could have an extremely good team next year.

  18. The option is a great wrinkle. Don’t like it as our base offense but this was a great game & it has been effective this year. I welcome it into the playbook.

  19. Pregame: “we’re going to get smoked by 50” Postgame: “we lost by 7.. we suck” I know we have some serious O line and special teams issues but if that game doesn’t give you a bit of pride and hope then you’re tainted.

  20. Alright after reading lots of posts and getting more and more mad I am going to vent a little bit. Yes yesterdays game was a bit of a embarrassment. But you just cant Judge a season off of the first game. Now I do agree our QB does suck. Our defensive line I thought showed some very good improvement IMO. But for ppl or article writers calling for frost to go that's just childish and all your doing is wanting attention. You cant fire a coach just after 3 seasons and for how much we are paying him that would be irresponsible. No-one said it was going to be a overnight fix like what some ppl where hoping for. There is only so much the coaches can do and what it it boils down to is the kids and how hard they want to work and how bad they want to win. I do think part of the problem is that its the B.S. transfer portal I say if your commit to a school you are to stay at least 2 seasons. If you cant stand a coach yelling at you, cursing at you, or pushing you harder and you quit because of that. How are you gonna make it through life? Also if your gonna transfer just because your not starting or seeing enough snaps and you think it will be better at another school. I would say to that player is to think again about it. Some people are thinking that we need a new coach every 5 years and hope that will fix it to them I say no. Your doing nothing but wasting money and your not going to change anything in that short amount of time. I will say it again the coaches can only do so much, it boils down to the kids. Now I do agree we need to make some staff changes, but I really dont think we need a new head coach. Its only been 3 years.

  27. Wow. You've really given us something to think about. After reading this thoughtful post, I need some time to re-evaluate my thoughts and expectations as a Husker fan and as a human being. Hopefully others will read this and take it as seriously as I have. Your insight truly has the power to change some minds and hearts. Thank you for joining this board so you could share your wisdom. Now f#ck off.

  28. The mortality rate for COVID-19 in those age 10 to 20 (the closest group was reported) was 0.2% . The mortality of influneza in 2019 was 0.002% (ages 5-17). For 2018 the mortality rate of influenza was 0.007% in that age group. This is a moratilty rate that is 100 times higher than influenzas. Please stop spouting off information of the top of your head or that you have heard some other ill-informed person say and check the S@#t out. Also, for those who are interested in that sort of thing there is a book, "The Psychology of Pandemic" that goes into peoples reactions to pandemic events. It is surprising how similar it is compared to 1918, and the 1300's (bubonic plaque). A good read. Mods please forgive me, I was only trying to provide context for the rationale behind the Big Ten COVID protocol. I promise that this is that last ignorant post I will respond to in this thread. What does it mean for Wisconsin if Mertz is confirmed positive. What does it mean for Nebraska if he isn't? Those would be interesting things to discuss.

  30. This is just my thoughts but what more does Trev need to see? NU is in the weakest division in P5 football. Wisconsin is horrible and only getting worse. Minny had their year and since then have been back to ,500 ball and they will be worse next year. NW is bad. Purdue is bad. Illinois is horrible. Iowa is "the class" of the division this year and they are only favored by 4 at MD this weekend, think about that. This division is ready for NU to do anything at all. A competent coach wins this division 75% of the time. I don't even know if winning 4 more matters. NU should not be struggling to make a bowl game.

  31. Our special teams cost us a win against a Top 5 team. Our O-Line coaching is a hot mess…supposedly we have the kids but they can’t block s***. Our 2-minute offense is craptacular. Our defense is going to give us hope, and our special teams will continue to rip it away. All while our offense shows up *just enough* to not bring suspicion to itself.

  34. This isn't towards you, but this is a theme I want to address. It has to stop yall. In the past 3 years, who you think been calling timeouts, handle the game management, control the play calling, wants fair catches on kickoffs (like a scared b!^@h), fires an OC, hires a new ST collaboration/coordinator/group, doesn't blitz (like a scared b!^@h), doesn't trust to run the ball with the young backs (like a scared b!^@h), see's snaps from the center mess up drives, calls out opponents coach for "clapping", says "this was our best practice", rolls out a lame WR group (Falck, Liewer, Warner???), feeds Wandale the ball too much (to retain him?? to please him?? A little 5'6" guy??), and puts stress on the QB to win or lose (Throw, Run, Scramble, Make a Play.... Oh and gt the ball to Wandale if you can)..... Who you think shuffles Quarterbacks, and is in charge of a team that fumbles a lot, throws INTs.... and penalties, and red zone failures, a kickoff kicker problem, a punter problem... on and on and on....??? And everybody been redshirting for the "future"....for like 3 years. I am so tired of hearing about the enormous mountains that need to be climbed as we go into year 4 because of "the past guys, and Riley". It's a football game. Riley was here only 3 years dawg. Get over it. Accountability doesn't point fingers at 2015 or 2016 or whatever. And if there was a MIC I would drop that s#!t right here lol.

  35. Yep, Ed Stewart is the next AD at NU. Ed is currently the Executive Associate Commissioner of Football for the Big XII. He will be perfect for negotiating our way back into the Big XII and securing us a Big XII coach who will do well in the conference. The Big 10 Experiment has failed. No amount of money can sweep away 100 years of tradition and the NU brass would much rather live in the shadow of OU than OSU. We are going back to the Big XII (Missouri and Colorado are also potentially returning). New member rules and a potential move of the Big 12 HQ to a more central (neutral) location on the negotiating table. Big 12 Network channel in the works, will eventually be making the money we currently make with the Big 10. North and South divisions for the Big XII are happening. Playing Texas will be rare for us. Matt Campbell will be replacing Frost after this season.

  36. 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.

  42. I’ll start off by saying that you cannot win with the Likes of Liewer, Kade, and Falck out there. Robinson was double teamed every play. Throw Betts, Flemming, Brown, and or Hickman to the wolves. They are the future. Nebraska is a true feast or famine team under Frost. Especially on offense. DL was impressive. Secondary got exposed and is now out for game two. This needs to never happen again. Especially the targeting.

  43. You're takes are bad and you should feel bad. We hung with the #3 team all game. We don't suck. Just discipline and special teams that hurt us (yet again). mentally weak is laughable, this team brang it the whole game and kept popping back at a superior team.
