  1. I'm hearing the home field advantage has gone from +3 to +0.5 However officiating has gone from 0 to -7

  2. Yep. We did have a perfect punt and touched it down on their 6 - nice to see those better special teams moments. Our fourth drive: 1. Wide screen to Wan'Dale, +4 yards. 2. QB Wrap up the middle by McCaffrey for 3 yards. 3. Awesome pass protection by our line, Martinez hits Stoll over the middle for 15 yards and a first down. 4. Play action deep 50/50 ball to the sideline by Martinez to Vokolek, incomplete. 5. Inside zone handoff to Mills across the B gap, Farniok & Benhart both own their assignments and big hole for Dedrick, +8 yards. 6. McC

  3. You're a power 5 wide receiver, and a captain. A ball you have two hands on has to be caught. This argument that every pass has to be absolutely perfect needs to stop. We will never beat top teams with that line of thinking.

  4. Idk if you saw Adrian, Luke, Robinson, and even Thompkins out ran some defenders.tOSU is an elite team with elite speed. We will out pace the lower tier teams in the conference from now on.

  5. Disagree. Bad blocking from WR is what we saw last year and it sucked. They need to play the entire position. Not just the glory of catching passes.

  6. We rushed for 210 yards yesterday against Ohio State and had 370 total yards. When Wisconsin faced off against the Buckeyes in the B1G title game last year (with a back that is sixth all-time in NCAA rushing yards), they ran for 200 yards against the Bucks. For comparison in our game against OSU last season, we only mustered 231 total yards of offense. I saw some improvement on offense. They'll probably take this video down soon and I can't make a GIF of it because those GIF making sites require the original video to be like less than 10 minutes, but click play below and it'll sta

  7. Martinez was 12/15 throwing, which is an 80% completion rate. IMO Warner probably should have caught that ball in the end zone and Adrian would have been 13/15 with one TD pass. People can say that Adrian was mainly just hitting shorter passes, but who cares? 80% completion rate is great.

  8. Looking at Saturday and some of the good play we had, and then looking ahead at the games coming up, it seems to me that Nebraska's season boils down to what happens two Saturdays from now at Northwestern, a team which has given us very difficult challenges since we joined the BIG. Not ruling out something good happening at home against the Badgers mainly because I am a fan. But realistically, we are going to be down, most likely anyway, a couple of defenders, and WOW Wisky was really impressive in week one, albeit against the Illinois football squad. Still, it looks like an uphill

  9. If you want to use your QB as your primary run game, that's fine with me. Guess that's one way to clear up a QB competition. First one with a broken bone loses. Get a fullback if that's the case...or better yet, put a TE back there to help lead block.

  10. I learned this was the first game of the season and looked like it for both teams. Defense looked pretty stout against the run. LBs looked surprisingly decent against the run but slow on coverage. Good hitting though. Secondary has no speed and needs a dose of mental discipline My big question about the offense was where is this running game everyone keeps talking about? QB draws and scrambles is not a running game. Actual running backs carried the ball 14 times. Combine that with a bunch of slow receivers and you have a pretty anemic looking offense.

  11. Warner let a TD pass go right through his hands. Most level-headed fans will give our team a pass overall because of the talent we faced (and I think that'd be prudent), but on plays like that there just aren't any excuses.

  14. The first half is definitely worth watching there was some good. Second half the wheels came off a bit but not as bad as in the past. I don't think Martinez came up short. I don't get the hate on him. You can see him work his progression and no one is there for him. He ran well and his biggest mistake was a fumble while scrambling that was returned. Here's the thing though you have to compare Luke as the main QB and remove his gadget plays to really compare them. The last two drives of the game with LM at QB and AM off the field this is what they did.

  15. Disagree. You can't hold everybody else on the team accountable and then let a player here and there get by with not doing what is expected of the team. Doing so may allow for some immediate benefits but will erode the long term confidence in the rest of the team. I am sure Frost is pulling his hair out wishing his stars would just do what they are supposed to do when they are supposed to do it, but he can't cave or he looks a fool to the rest. It is his job, however, to figure out how to get them into the fold. Sounds like he is doing that, but you can't just throw out the fold because it is

  16. Benning (on BRO) made references that Manning and Fleming aren't doing what they need to do in practices and other areas to see the field. It sounds like those guys are trying to get away with things that aren't accepted by the coaches. I understand we want talent on the field, but if the coaching staff has certain guidelines to establish the culture of the team, all of the players need to follow those guidelines. Hickman and Brown missed the last scrimmage before the season with injuries, so they may not have been fully ready to go. Betts is still learning the offense, which ca

  17. Nebraska 31 Wisconsin 20 Yesterday's game had a different feel to me, especially in the trenches. Our line play, against the best opponent we will see all season, was very good imo. That will translate to quite a few wins with the first being next week.

  18. Actually pretty impressed with the offensive line. Averaged 6.0 yards per carry against our toughest opponent of the year. Without the sacks it was 7.1 ypc. That will work. Defensive line was almost as good. Holding Ohio State to 4.6 ypc is quite the improvement. ILBs played a part in that and seemed solid. We had 146 more yards this year than we had against them last year. And gave up 82 fewer. If we can close the gap by another 228 yards next year we might have a chance. It seemed like we were playing a guy short in the secondary. They had room e

  19. I learned that a lot of posters gave up on this team before the game started. I learned our offense is gonna put up a lot of points this season. I learned our defense is going to be pretty decent, unless they're facing the equivalent of an NFL team. I learned that Big 10 officiating is a ducking joke.

  22. The reason yesterday looked different mainly because we are starting to see the fruits of redshirting and S&C. Recruiting is improving, but we are not landing true freshman talent like an Ohio State or Alabama We look greatly improved from a physical standpoint on both lines of scrimmage. That alone means we finally have an opportunity to win against any remaining opponent.

  23. Cautiously optimistic after yesterday on both sides of the ball. I think it was a complete 180 in terms of physicality which is/ was our biggest problem against all the heavy hitters in the league, and to man up against Ohio State - we are on the right track - with a lot of work ahead

  24. You said it wasn't one he should have caught, but could have. I am saying he absolutely should have as a P5 captain with two hands on the ball. That was the point I was trying to make, and to not just expect only perfect passes to be in the "should catch" category.

  25. That was a pass Warner could have caught, not one he should have caught. That was high, hot and behind him. That's on Martinez for throwing a pretty poor pass to a receiver that was that open.

  26. I didn't see enough bad things from Martinez, and enough good things from McCaffrey to warrant a change at starting QB. I liked how McCaffrey was used in various places of the offense. Yes, it's gimmicky, but it produces chunk plays. What I want from Martinez is for him to accept that he doesn't need to make all the plays by himself. If he learns to accept what the defense gives him, and not always go for the big play, he will be a better player. Now, he did that for the most part against Ohio State, and then he had that back-breaking fumble in the 3rd quarter. That play was t

  29. If this were Osborne's offense, I could agree with you, but Frost's offense requires much more from the receivers than merely blocking well. If the receivers aren't making plays in this offense, they're playing bad, period.

  32. Eh, I think there's a difference between were neutral and played bad. They didn't make any plays. But they were overmatched. I don't think they hurt us which would be playing bad. They blocked well and that sprung a couple runs.

  33. Which still amounted to OSU going up and down the field on us...I mean for f sakes, put some tighter coverage on with direct blitz/heat and atleast force him to throw immediate. I dont put a very high, "they know what they are doing" label on coaches...for the most part, coaches are people who are stubborn people who get machismo with their "identity" and cannot adapt

  35. I seriously don't understand anyone looking at today's game negatively: Our biggest question mark entering this year was the defensive line, and a brand-new two-deep looked better and more stout against a top-5 team than they did against anyone with a pulse last year Martinez hung in the pocket and stepped up instead of bailing to the right every time he felt pressure. Also looked like a much more effective runner than last year. Luke looked like a legit weapon with the ball in his hands and we appear to have a creative plan to use him in a variety of ro

  36. I said in the presser thread we could lose by 28 and still have all our goals ahead of us, still feel the same way. I love reacting to Husker games, but this is like losing to Nebraska in the 90s, take our loss and move on, just like 125 other teams would do against OSU. Next week is our measuring stick. Can’t let Wisconsin have their way with us with a mediocre rushing O and freshman QB. I have high expectations for next week and won’t lower them just because we got licked by an elite team.

  37. Nah. I can see kneeling down, but he had his backups in the game and they need reps. Pretty sure Nebraska had some backups in, too. I have zero problems with that TD.

  39. I'm not happy, but I'm not disappointed, either. Too many of Ohio State's TDs were gift wrapped, but on some of them, it was the officials doing the wrapping. Honestly, the defense as a whole looked better than I expected against what is probably one of the best offenses in the country. Obviously we still need a lot more from the WRs, hopefully Manning provides that spark we need. OL didn't look too bad. Losing two defenders on questionable targeting calls suuucks, and is gonna suck again next week.

  40. 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.

  41. I'd probably take a bet on Wisconsin covering a spread of -10.5. Frost has been able to mostly still be in it by the start of the fourth quarter against you...and then our wheels fall off. From what little football we've played (one game, ha), we have a stout run defense and a terrible pass defense. Last year Purdue's true freshman QB had all day to toss the ball all over the field on us because we have no pass rush. Hopefully it's a good game and we can at least make Chryst swear several times with that goofy face of his staring blankly across the field.

  45. It's unfortunate and frustrating that guys like Houston and Nance are turning out to be non-contributors. I applaud the staff for recognizing this and currently have 3 big-bodied receivers committed in the '21 class. The staff is also being creative with moving Hickman to WR, and following up by recruiting 3 tight ends in the '21 class, although the kid from Prep could end up moving to DE down the road.

  46. I think we’ve got two potentially great QBs in both McCaffery and Smothers. The rating doesn’t mean as much as people think. The development of a kid in the program is what matters. Both McCaffery and Smothers had higher star ratings than Lamar Jackson, for instance. In fact, Jackson was the 12th highest rated dual-threat QB in his graduating High School class. Only 2 of those players ended up having significant playing time as QB throughout College - Kyler Murray & Sam Darnold. Joe Burrow was also part of this class and ranked ahead of Lamar, but only one season of really play time as we
