    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.

    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.

    I've said it before and I'll keep reminding people. 1. The 85 scholarship limit went into effect in the early '90's, without looking it up, I think 1991. And some degree of scholarship limit was in effect from the middle 70's. 2. Yes, Nebraska used partial qualifiers as allowed by the NCAA until the Big 12 was formed and finally the NCAA banned all partials in the late 90's. However, nowhere is it written that low level learners or those who blew off their high school studies where automatically better football players. 3. Parity did increase but the "good" schools still won more games. And furthermore, Nebraska was not the only school that had to play by these rules. Texas, Florida, Miami, all the rest had to only give 85, had to pass on partials, (if they used them), and parity affected everybody. Limits were on a 3 year phase to move the limit down: 1992-93 - 92* 1993-94 - 88* 1994-95 - 85* all taken from this super informant page on recruiting in years past for Nebraska: https://sites.google.com/site/nebraskafootballhistory/recruiting

    I'll refer you to the title of the topic and the lead up to Toms pinnacle years weren't always top 10-15. It isn't an end all be all requirement to be at the top. https://sites.google.com/site/nebraskafootballhistory/recruiting Ranked 10 to 30 actually from 1990 to 1994.

    I hold a little bit different of an opinion - in the game against Nebraska this past season, I think he showed exactly why he wasn't a starter here and why he wouldn't be able to run Scott's offense. He was 11-25 for 126 yards and two INTs against a below average college football defense. On the season, he was a 53.9% passer, with 6 TDs and 9 INTs. He was also not getting any first or second team reps in the weeks leading up to his start...he was an after thought...Until Gebbia left. Then he suddenly was thrust into a role he hadn't prepared for. I think he did as well as someone could in his situation.

    Mohamed Barry

    Been excited for Mohamed Barry for years now...I'm so glad he's putting it all together on the field. He was the LB recruit I was most excited about because of his speed and power. Glad we have him for at least one more year.
