    If he were my son I would tell him to go to Oklahoma

    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.

    If he were my son, I'd tell him to stop listening to Mike Riley.

    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? FOLLOW-UP: Lee, how does your "block them all" attitude correspond to your employer's desperate pleas for more online subscribers, and do you personally see any conflict with those two positions?

    I think your cart is so far in front of the horse it is in danger of being stolen.

    Maybe Riley recommended that he go to Oklahama.

    No, you are not accurately describing it. You are sensationalizing to fit your agenda. He didn't "cloak[ed] himself in Husker Red to promote his opinion." He went to speak on a topic. He was caught somewhat off-guard when asked to give his address and, after hesitating, replied with "One Memorial Stadium". It is equally possible and probably more likely that he had to make a snap decision about giving his home address where - being a local celebrity of sorts - he - and his family - could easily become a target for retaliation and opted for a different answer. You have nothing to indicate that his intention in doing that was to use his position as a bully pulpit. And he apologized for doing that. Had he actually gone into saying "I'm Husker coach Ron Brown" or something along those lines, that would be be 'cloaking himself in Husker Red' and his following apology would be less meaningful. But that's not what happened, only how it's being presented.

    Eh, I think we'll score a touchdown sometime in the next 30 years so I'd take this bet.

    Put down the tomatoes, don’t throw them at me. I drank the koolaide by the gallon this summer and still have some leftovers in my fridge that I sneak off and drink sometimes. I love this coach, and each week I love this team more and more. So hear me out. Even I’ll conceed that OSU outclasses us enough at this point in the season that we probably can’t compete this year. But that’s not true for the other 6. It’s going to take injury luck and continued improvement each week. But if we can find a way to snag a win this weekend, take one game at a time, view it as championship weekend every week with a bowl game up for grabs, it could happen still. If we can beat NW, then we should be able to matchup with the likes of Minnesota and Iowa as well. Bethune and Illinois are the easiest W’s left, obviously, so if we can keep focus and not pull the traditional “NU forgets to show up,” thing, those go our way. That leaves MSU, which haven’t looked unstoppable imo. If you can find a way to play that game above you heads a bit, again, knowing the postseason lies on the other side, it’s not unreasonable. This weekend is huge. May be the last great chance at gigantic direction change for 2018.

    Come on everyone, can't we just let Tyjons be bygones?

    He cleans house and keeps doing things his way. If we look like this years 3 and 4 we can talk about scheme changes. Until then you’re just being unfair.

    I love how fans treat these kids differently than they'd treat the same scenario in the free market. If a big promotion came around at work that you and one other very qualified employee were fighting for and he got it and not you, nobody would spite you for weighing better options with a different company. You make the decisions that put yourself in the best position to be successful. The same concepts surely apply to talented young collegiate athletes.

    Why this spread? Because Vegas, unlike some of the supposed Nebraska “fans” in other threads, have seen what most of the sane, rational fan base has witnessed—that there has been progress made, that the team is getting better, and they’re getting close to turning the corner. And lest anyone forget...Vegas is in the business of making money. They have zero f***s to give about the feelings of Nebraska fans. They’re using their own eyeballs and making a judgement call.

    Come on. This years team would kill last years team. Tanner lee would throw 4 picks, 2 of the pick 6 variety.

    Going 1600 miles away into a state that currently has two Top 15 teams and getting one of the best players - THE best according to 247 - to commit 20 days after you offered him. That'll do

    Obviously things haven't worked out well so far. But we are actually doing a lot of things well. It's mostly that the few things we aren't doing well are having a huge impact on the games. Yes, those things need to be fixed. But I think we're actually playing a lot better than the results show - as Frost said. Here are the stats to back it up: We are #43 in the country in Yards per Game. Not great but we were #3 in the country after one game and took a nose dive when he had to play our backup QB. But we are #103 in the country in Points per Game. That's a 60 rank difference between how our offense is moving the ball and how we're scoring. That is the second-worst rank difference in the nation (Purdue is 67 spots worse). If we can keep moving the ball like that, the points will come. And the crazy thing is it's almost the exact same story on defense. We are #39 in the country in Yards Allowed per game. Again, not great. But we are #90 in the country in Points Allowed per Game. That's 51 spots worse and that is the worst difference in the country. Points are obviously what wins and loses games. But I've long said that yards are a better indication of future success. Points can be fluky - special teams and defensive TDs come and go, especially on a small sample size. And turnovers can change field position in a hurry. But if you're good in the the yards categories - or, in our case, much better than the points have shown - chances are things will even out. I think we'll see a regression to the mean going forward. Which in this case is a good thing for us. Maybe not this weekend as we play our toughest opponent so far. But it will show up soon.
