    Who is the worst actor/actress?

    You're crazy. His work in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure was Oscar worthy. Seriously though, he's not a good actor but I like a lot of the movies he's done. The Matrix trilogy, Constantine, Speed, Chain Reaction, Point Break...... People who don't know acting normally say that he's a bad actor...however, good points most don't consider have been made about his acting ability: https://www.rogerebert.com/balder-and-dash/bright-walldark-room-february-2016-the-grace-of-keanu-reeves-by-angelica-jade-bastién https://observer.com/2018/09/film-crit-hulk-keanu-reeves-and-good-acting/

    2019 Season Prediction Thread

    Until I see him real dealing it on the actual field I have no data from which to be satisfied with this answer. Potential skill and ability is just that....potential. We've had countless skill players come through Nebraska in the past 10 years who were supposed to set the world on fire and they ended up not even making a spark. I'll wait until there I see something on the field before I feel better about his backup. I don't have a lot of confidence that anyone is close to him in performance at this time.

    He'll want to play for a winning program. Win big this year and have a great year and he'll look harder.

    WR Charles Njoku [UCLA - Signed LOI]

    Nebraska can't seem to recruit a scholarship speedy receiver over 6'3" and in hoops a real center over 6'10". It's like a curse.

    OLine Work in Progress

    Blocking schemes for a pro offense are often more complicated than a standard 'run first' offense. Frost's offense is supposed to be much easier to master via blocking schemes. I expect massive improvements over the next few years.

    Husker Football Recruiting Class of 2019

    16th in 2011 Composite at 247. But truly top 15 was 2005, where we had the 247 composite ranked 8th class....but we had 30 members of said class which pushed us up there. Interesting that Frost has the class average trending up in the past few years...that's what's impressive more to me than where we're ranked.

    I wouldnt count on Cam Jurgens He hasnt played an injury free season in football since his Soph year in HS Great athlete- hope it works out- but history is against him He hasn't had Duval's weight training his entire high school career either. I wouldn't count history against him either.

    ESPN: First 2019 Way-Too-Early Top 25

    I think it has more to do with Nebraska's absolute beatdown of Minnesota in 2018.

    Well this is interesting...

    Considering Wisconsin has been in the top 10 with worse classes recruiting than us...I think we're closer than people think.

    Do we need top 5 classes to be successful?

    I said a lot of their success is from playing in the west not all of it. As for those Miami wins, Miami wasn't very good this year and lost like 4 out of 5 to end last year they've been trending down for a year and a half. They have a good coach and a system that works for them that they've had in place for a long time. But when they go up against the best in the east like osu they haven't done to well. You took the wrong point of my post. I didn't care about Miami this year or last year. I cared that they have more talent than Wisconsin and Wisconsin outperformed them both last year and this year. It means there is a lot more to putting together a football team than talent. Texas is another GREAT example of this. Top 10 recruiting and then crapping down their leg every season. FWIW, I think that Frost will be good at both...developing players AND recruiting. I think we keep getting top 25 classes, we'll play like a top 25 team. We stay relevant in the hunt for a title for a few years in a row, people will want to be on that bus and I think recruiting gets a nice bump into the top 10-15. I think winning it all can be done around there for recruiting...especially with development. I'm in a wait and see mode but I'm optimistic in the current staff...much more than I have been with anyone since Pelini.

    Do we need top 5 classes to be successful?

    And they have lost something like 8 out of their last 10 vs ohio state. A lot of their success is because they play in the west So last year they beat #10 Miami in a bowl. In 2016, they beat LSU in a regular season game. This success against good teams in other conferences is because they play in the West? Beating Miami 2 years in a row in a bowl is pretty amazing considering Miami has 34 four and five star recruits on the roster and Wisconsin has Seven. Their success? It's not just because they play in the West.
