  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Wow, I was born and raised in Oklahoma and grew up enjoying watching the best two teams in the Big 8. I always had respect for Nebraskans. I had no idea what a bunch of bigots you are.

  9. 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).

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. "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

  15. 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

  17. Right, and because of this the B1G will have to adjust to us.

  18. I think way to much is made of this because people don't like the results. It is way more about having the athletes to run the offense than it is about changing what type of offense is run. Our offense is not that much different than what Ohio State runs. Are they having to adjust to the B1G? Our offense isn't a lot different than what Penn State runs (though it wasn't as effective last year). Are they having to adjust to the B1G? Our offense isn't a lot different than what Indiana, Purdue, or Minnesota run. They are pretty competitive in the B1G. The problem isn't that the

  20. I think that's a great idea! Oh yeahhhh Bro @Mavric can you swap the upvote with koolaid?? Please? You got all the power. Would be great for husker team building Maybe just for 2021 idk,.. think about it... oh yeahhh

  21. As I've mentioned every now and then when this subject comes up: if either Taylor Martinez or Joe Ganz had that 2009 Nebraska Defense behind him, we may not be talking about his shortcomings, or learning anything from the run first/past first debate. We'd be too busy celebrating.

  24. I want to add to this. You're exactly right and for this defense to thrive the way Chins wants it, they need the opportunity to take chances. It's hard to do that when your offense sucks.

  27. I think you're underestimating how good a 34.5 inch vertical for an OL is. Only one OL in the combine out jumped him and he tied Alex Leatherwood who was drafted 17th overall. He out jumped Travis Etienne, RB from Clemson, 1st round pick, by a full inch. He out jumped multiple WRs, LBs, OL, DL, RBs, and Safeties who went in the first 3 rounds. Cam is a freak of an athlete and that jump doesn't discount the athletes we have at other positions at all.

  30. I don't understand the "this offense doesn't work in the Big Ten" stuff. It's already proven it has; his first year when he two good receivers and a good back and an experienced line the offense was ranked top 25 nationally and moved the ball on a lot of good defenses (with a true freshman QB). There have needed to be some tweaks as any good coach would make to a new situation, but the offense's lack of success the past couple years has been far more about not having skill position players who would start at many other B1G schools than it has about any sort of scheme or player archetype.

  34. Ha ha! I actually do think we'll be a lot better this year. It's just that, for the past three years I've been like Charlie Brown trying to kick that football: This is the year, I tell you. This is the year!

  35. I don't care about QBs running, that will never win the conference and will just end up with injuries. Scrambles and 3 or 4 change of pace draws to slides a game I can handle. But if we run any QB 10+ times a game any more that is not a sustainable winning scenario in my opinion. RBs should be taking the bulk of carries and I want the QB upright making throws.

  36. Chins was much more prepared than Scott when they came to Nebraska. He remembers the style of play and size difference. It's no surprise that the Defense is on the verge of a breakout. If they do, get the checkbook out. He will be a hot commodity D coordinator because he is also an elite recruiter.

  38. I would like to see you point to one of the "facts" that I've posted that isn't true. Riley had Pelini's recruits to work with. Frost has had Riley's to work with. Chicken salad and such. You can be tired of it all you want. That doesn't mean it's not true. I mentioned in earlier posts that Frost bears some blame in the recruiting department also. But I guess you keep ignoring the parts you don't want to read.

  39. I don't know if any team messes up as much as we do. One good play, then a false start, a 5yd pass in the flat followed by a sack, INT, holding call or fumble. I'm sure we've had some great plays called but we'll never know cause we couldn't get out of our own way. Until players start accepting accountability for the dumbs things occurring, it's not going to change.

  41. Honest question. Had Frost tried to adjust to the B1G from the jump, would we further along then we are now. I agree with recruiting for one scheme and then another (or body type) has hurt us. I realize it also takes a while to get bigger/faster/stronger. I just wish that Frost realized (and maybe he did) that the magic that was the UCF, in its entirety, would not work in the B1G. And that could very well be the case with the long contract, constant talk about the re-build etc....
