  1. Kind of funny how things develop. Two months ago people were sure that Chins was terrible and McCaffrey needed to be our starting QB. Weird how things you think you know can turn out to be totally wrong.

  2. In a nutshell: Butler & A Will are not surprised as they felt that Riley players were blamed to be a problem & pushed out. Also saying that when back to back years you lose your top WR that’s a problem. My issue with that is Butler was a non-contributor along with a lot of those late Riley classes & feelings got hurt when he was told to move on. Second, JD was a weird dude with a lot of issues. He didn’t gel with the staff. I get it. Wan’Dale basically just transferred because his mother who he hasn’t seen in 8-9 months has been hospitalized with covid. There is nothin

  3. I’ll summarize the past two years’ philosophy for you: 1. Bubble screen 2. Wandale designated touch 3. QB scramble for first down *4. Bad snap and/or penalty 5. RB run into defender for three yards 6. Another Wandale touch 7. Throw out of bounds on third and long 8. Punt *#4 was always a wildcard and could appear at any point in the order. Quite the suspense!

  6. @Farms Yup, obviously his mom got hospitalized just to make it easier for Wandale to say goodbye to Nebraska. JFC, some of you people on this board...

  7. In fairness to Offensive Identity, we run an offense very similar to those employed by the most successful teams in football. We just don't run it very well.

  8. So much negative talk about Jurgens. I understand and see first hand how bad the snaps are and how many times it has cost us negative plays, including the timing issues in the passing game. I also know how hard it is to play center (technique alone), especially if you are going to run 99.9% from the gun. This is not a natural feat. Throw in the more demanding task of understanding defensive fronts and having to learn all the line calls at the D1 level. Jurgens is a FREAK athlete. I am as frustrated as the rest of you, but I refuse to banish him and constantly harp. For anyone

  9. After they made the snapping adjustment, he played and snapped relatively well the rest of the season. Not sure you can keep harping about it if they've corrected it already.

  12. Nah, you are the one with the bad take. There is a reason Wandale never brook one to the house when using top end speed. He was mostly good for short catches in space. that is NEVER going to beat Ohio state. The play that Betts had against Penn state is the electric athletic ability that can win you games against Ohio State. Look back at every win against PSU and OSU while Nebraska has been in the Big Ten....zero Wandale types were on the WR unit playing in those games. People overrate Wandale. He is good but not a special talent. Betts is a special talent.

  16. Certain people want to act like advanced stats don't matter, and I get that they're not everything, but we finished 32nd in SP+ this year. We were 55th last year and 49th in '18. Riley's best team was 33rd and he left the program ranked in the 70s. The numbers would say we have massively improved, we are just a mostly young team playing one of the toughest schedules in the country and make young-team mistakes. I am also frustrated there haven't been more wins, but some fans are being wildly, overdramatically negative about the state of the program and the coaching that is happening. We have im

  18. I remember how excited I was two years ago watching Martinez, Washington, JD and Wand ale and thinking wait until these guys get another year of development. Sometimes being a Nebraska fan sucks!

  19. Good riddance! You cannot create the culture that Frost speaks of but have the shadow of Wandale’s nfl future hanging over the team. If nobody is bigger than the team than NOBODY is bigger than the team.

  28. Eh, I think a lot of people are over-selling how bad we are because they are frustrated. Not that I blame them for being frustrated. But we're not nearly as far off as people like to claim. We played toe-to-toe for 25 minutes with an Ohio State team that took Clemson behind the woodshed. We had easily the second-best offensive outing of the year against a very good Northwestern defense and had two chances at the end of the game to beat the team that finished 7-2 and #14 in the country. We beat a Penn State team that has some of the most talent in the country with our ba

  29. In regards to offensive talent.... QB: AM (4* in his 4th season), LMC and Smothers (4*'s with multiple years in system) RB: Stepp, Sevy, Rahmir (all 4*s) WR: Toure (FCS All American) - Betts, Omar, Brown, Martin (All 4*) TE: Allen (proven), Fidone (4* Top TE) OL: Anchored by Benhart and Corcran (4* top 150 guys) If the offense can't go with this group, IDK if it ever will.

  30. Wandale's dad was trying to get him pulled out of Nebraska last year too. He never wanted him here and was always tweet, liking stupid negative s#!t on Twitter about Nebraska. The "I want to run a speific route for the NFL" is dumb too. You don't need to run a specific route or two in college for the NFL to know what you can do and can't do. Wouldn't shock me if Wandale has a similar path as JD - think the grass is greener elsewhere and ends up on not having the type of season that he wanted that he would have had by staying pat and going out and working.

  32. To everybody saying it was all COVID related, the ESPN article quotes Robinson himself by saying it was 50-50 his mother and his touches and how he got them. Turns out Frost giving him I-Back carries in the B1G was a really stupid. Wan'dale knows he's not going to the NFL based on his RB film. He also knows he's not going there with our current QBs. I wish him the best of luck, I don’t blame him for transferring.

  33. Dude, if your mom, who already had multiple sclerosis https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/multiple-sclerosis/symptoms-causes/syc-20350269- getting sick and hospitalized while you were in college wouldn't make you at least reconsider where you were at, you guys are cold a** dudes.

  34. You can tell yourselves that this is about family and health, and distance and Covid, or whatever, but you're fooling yourselves. Those things are important but if we were winning, or had a functional offense that featured him properly, or we had a QB that could get him the ball, he'd still be here. I'm not part of the fire Frost crowd bc/ changing coaches every 3-4 years is partially why we are here but you are wearing Frosted rosy glasses if you think he is living up to expectations. There are legit issues right now. This is not OK. The attrition in gener

  37. You absolutely fail in every aspect of this argument. When a riot is incited by the President to intimidate the government to overturn an election where he lost, that’s a coup. your love of this disgusting human is an example of what is so wrong with this entire issue. You are devoted to Trump. You are not devoted to America and it’s core values.

  39. The other sunshine pumping thread is bogus, so let's get some actual Kool-Aid flowing. To start our defense is almost intact as 9 out of 11 starters are back on a defense that has consistently improved. Our biggest need is a consistent pass rush and there are glimmers of hope as both Nelson and Payne had their moments. There is also a chance that Tannor or Cooper could breakout although I think this is less likely. Also, Stille and Rogers could continue to develop and generate more pressure from the inside. With a better pass rush I would expect more turnovers with QB strip fumble

A ‘Stop the Steal’ organizer, now banned by Twitter, said three GOP lawmakers helped plan his D.C. rally New Jersey Democrat says members of Congress led 'reconnaissance' tours ahead of riot Capitol Police rejected offers of federal help to quell mob Panic buttons were inexplicably torn out ahead of Capitol riots, says Ayanna Pressley chief of staff A Capitol Police officer who works the night shift said he and others expected to work on the day of the attack but were sent home Wonder how many of these stories are interconnected.

  42. Fidone is correct. Bama, Clemson, OU, tOSU....they all reigning champs and have the cycle of pro-turns. I heard on the game cast Bama OT is 6’7” and 360 lbs? I mean, that’s a human wall. Plus Smith and Harris? Lol, that’s some 90s N s#!t right there. we have some walls now, we have a couple 6’2” WR, we have a D that’s gotten better by inches, we have a Sr QB... I’m excited for next year. I think we’ll be good, not great, but breaking thru some of these f’ing 6-10 pt losses we’ve had the last 3 yrs. We are on the up

  43. Pretty disappointed in Sherman's story - if you're going to call BS on the health issues as the overwhelming reason, have the guts to call it BS in the story. Don't just ignore it for 90% of the story and throw in a "don't underestimate that factor," which is the only factor the player brought up. Quite possible he wasn't happy with Frost, the offense, whatever. But again, not even addressing the health reason until near the end of the story with a couple somewhat dismissive lines is just trying to capitalize on the anger around the program.
