  1. I found out yesterday that I was selected as Teacher of the Year. It just so happened that yesterday was also Sports Day, where we could wear attire representing our favorite teams. Pretty certain I'm the only guy in Louisiana rocking a Nebraska Cornhuskers hat and a throwback Bucs SUH #93 Creamsicle jersey.

  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...

  5. Still trying to figure out how we have a couple of well recruited QBs in that room and a so called "quarterback whisperer" on the payroll and STILL have to have conversations about bringing in other QBs..??

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  16. I think the quote deserves its own thread, Motivating young men is the single most important thing coaches do. Especially talent not living up to its potential. A whole team lacking talent and motivation in your fourth season as head coach? Sure that's not on you, f#&%head? Throwing players under the bus when you career blows up in your face is what cowards do. I don't need to see another day with Scott Frost as head coach.

  21. Longtime reader, rare poster from another Big Ten West school here! Just wanted to drop in and say that I'm looking forward to the game next weekend in Madison. Our team will be fools if they don't prepare as hard as they have all season for the matchup against Nebraska. I fully expect this to be one of the most difficult wins to pull off of the year, and would not be surprised at all to see the Huskers catch the Badgers off their game. (That being said, I hope it does not happen!) You know, I traveled for the first time down to Lincoln back in 2012 hoping to see my Badgers pull off a win in one of the best environments in college football. I left with Joel Stave breaking my heart right at the end of the game, but only after having my expectations far exceeded from a day of fun, hospitality, and lots of tailgating at "The Rez". Husker fans were as nice as advertised and we made many friends that day. We played a ton of beer pong, a weird frisbee/pole game I had never seen, and even grabbed lunch at the Haymarket. One story I will never forget from that day happened as we were entering Memorial Stadium. You see my friend had enjoyed perhaps a few too many drinks tailgating and had somehow figured out a way to misplace her game ticket between leaving the tailgate and entering the stadium. I could not believe it. Mind you, this was about a $300+ ticket at the time for one of the most highly anticipated Big Ten matchups of the season as it was in Nebraska's second year in the conference. It was the first time Wisconsin had played in Lincoln since the 70s. So there we were, stranded outside of the concourses of Memorial Stadium, obnoxiously decked out in Badger gear, and my friend sobbing inconsolably near the wall of the stadium (mostly because she was so upset for having lost the ticket, but partially because of a few too many beers). All of the sudden, an older gentleman with bright white hair stuffed under a bright red baseball cap walked over to us The thing was that, in place of the expected "W" on his hat, there was a large block "N" proudly embroidered on it. We were all a bit wary, but he seemed nice enough and started asking our small group of friends what was wrong. After we realized he was not there to taunt our tease us, we sorrowfully told him our story which only made my friend cry harder. As we were finishing our story, to all of our shock the old Husker fan reached into his pocket and pulled out a crisp, red and silver ticket. He then proceeded to tell us that his wife had decided to stay at their tailgate instead of coming to the game. He told my crying friend that he wanted her to have the ticket so that she could enjoy the game and her first trip to Memorial Stadium. We all stared at him in disbelief as he smiled and placed the (very nicely seated) extra ticket in my friends hand before saying, "Enjoy the game, and Go Huskers!" With that, he walked away, having given away what must have been a $400 - $500 centerfield ticket. But, in doing so, he gave our group another chance to have the perfect game day together. With renewed excitement, we scanned our tickets, then hurried up the stairs of the stadium to our seats all together. That story sums up Nebraska fans for me and why I'm so glad you all are part of the Big Ten Conference, and that we get the chance to meet each other every year as members of the Big Ten West Division. Each meeting of teams comes with a game and a score, but it also comes with hundreds of stories and exchanges that build something much more important over time. I know that the dissolution of the Big 8 and the Big 12 has been awful for you all to say the least, but given the way things are shaping up (with Texas and OU going to the hated SEC) I still think you all are in the right place. The Nebraska brand and legend will always have power: not because of the national championships or Big 8 championships, but because of the Nebraska fans that I experienced nearly 10 years ago and continue to see to this day. That can never be destroyed, and while these past few years have been tough, it's merely a drop in the bucket of time of all of our universities' storied programs. The Huskers will find their way back eventually and I believe, when all is said and done, the Big Ten West will be the perfect home for us all to compete year in and year out. These end-of-November matchups between you and Wisconsin or Iowa will, at some point, be huge division and/or playoff elimination games, and we will continue to develop strong bonds between our states and wonderful flagship universities which share so much in common. With that being said, enjoy the game on Saturday! If anyone is traveling to Madison, have fun and know that I envy you as I'll be up here in Minneapolis watching on television. One of these years, I am determined to make it back down to Lincoln to catch a Badger/Husker game. I know it will be a blast, just as it was last time. Only this time, we'll try to keep better track of our game tickets!

  22. Martinez is very close to being an elite college qb. with 1 more offseason of work maybe he gets there next year. our running backs are going to get a lot better with another offseason of development. our line can't get any worse. a lot of our key receivers should be back next year. our special teams can't get any worse. most the defense will be back which obviously has been the strongest part of the team. i'd personally would like to see frost get 1 more year to prove he can coach a winner. It makes sense to me.

  27. I’m guessing he’s probably taken his final snaps as a Husker. Genuinely bums me out he never really got to experience a marquee win.

  28. First, I understand everyone’s frustration. I’m sick of losing these games too. Here’s another perspective I think is important to consider. I learned that if we had hired Mel Tucker, and signed him to a 10 year deal, people on this board would have been calling for his head after yesterday’s pathetic performance. I learned that the coach in Ames isn’t the right replacement, because they’re 6&4 in his 4th year. I learned that the coach at Wake Forest isn’t the answer because he can’t beat Clemson in a down year. I learned that Coastal Carolina’s offensive coordinator isn’t the answer, because they could only muster 35 points against a terrible Texas State team. Here’s a hard pill to swallow for many on this board: Since 1970, only 13 teams have been able to stay within 9 points of their opponents in every game: 70, 71, 79, 80, 82, 83, 93, 94, 95, 97, 99 & 2021 (so far). Those are some great teams! Best in our history. You don’t do that with a “broken offense”. There may only be one schedule in those 12 other years that was this tough… maybe. This team didn’t quit on their coach like many of you have. The D held another team to under 400 yards. The offense put up another 400+ yard performance against another great defense and looked like it wasn’t missing 4 coaches. The system isn’t broken, the player development was. 4 new coaches who can develop their players 3/4 as well as Sean Beckton has put this 2021 team at 10 wins or better. Frost’s problem isn’t his system. The yards are there to prove that. It’s his loyalty. Loyalty to friends who couldn’t develop players on the offensive side of the ball. Adrian is a good QB who makes the same mistakes in year 4 as he did in year 1. You can’t expect to win when your QB averages more than 1 turnover a game. The oline is young and undeveloped. Running backs looked better yesterday than in the previous games, and they weren’t our best players at the position. Special teams has given up 44 points this season. The team has lost by a combined 49 points. The stadium is full every weekend… can you say the same for every top 25 program? Camp Randle looked pretty bare in spots yesterday. As did most of the games I watched yesterday across the country. Fan disappointment is real. Fan apathy? Not even close. We’ve never experienced that, and we never will, because we have the best damn fans on the planet. Frost IS the right guy, he’s still a young coach and he’s got a lot to learn. His team did something this season that hasn’t been done since the glory days. They don’t have the record to show for it, but the point difference tells a huge part of the story. If they stay within 9 of Iowa… that’s progress on defense. A few players developed on offense, and a special teams coach and look out 2022 and beyond.

  29. The flaw in this argument is we aren't losing to Oklahoma, Ohio State, Michigan or Michigan State because we can't get good athletes, we're losing because we make bonehead mistakes. The solution to this isn't to switch up the offense, the solution is to stop making bonehead mistakes.

  31. 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.

  32. 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.

  33. 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.

  40. 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.

  41. 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.

  42. 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.
