Backup (9/21)



  1. Well it appears the dominoes are really starting to fall today in Nebraska's assistant coaching search.
  2. Pitt's 2021 Offensive Stat Rankings under Mark Whipple: Total Offense (5th) Passing Offense (6th) Rushing Offense (72nd) First Down Offense (2nd) Team Passing Efficiency (8th) 3rd Down Conversion Pct (16th) 4th Down Conversion Pct (21st) Red Zone Offense (34th)
  3. Could wikipedia know something we don't know? It currently lists Mark Whipple as Nebraska Offensive Coordinator. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Whipple
  4. The more I think about it, I can't help but wonder if Graham Harrell's name was purposely floated out there now to gauge what the fan's reaction would be? Based off multiple Husker message boards (including this one), and along with twitter reactions to the Lincoln Journal Star story about the OC search - the overwhelming consenus at least from the fans is that this hire would be an absolute train wreck of a disaster. Frost would essentially be signing his own pink slip for next year by hiring Graham Harrell as his OC.
  5. I should add that while the Offensive Coordinator position is a big hire for Scott Frost because it will signal what direction that offensive scheme is going (staying similar or complete overhaul)... The most important hire for Frost is easily the Offensive Line coach. This position must be filled by someone who is equally a tremendous teacher as he is a stickler for technique. The O-line is what greases the groove for the rest of the offense. If the line struggles the whole offense struggles. (See the last 4 years)
  6. There has been lots of noise, and hardly any pushback on Ron Brown staying as RB's coach. I think Special Teams will be either Bill Busch or the Special Teams coach from Virginia.
  7. I would love to have Garrison back. Anyone who learned and played under the legendary Coach Tenopir is a good starting point for an O-line coach. As far as OC, I don't think Tim Beck is coming back. I posted in the OC thread to keep any eye on the Army OC, Utah's OC, and yes Willy Korn from Coastal Carolina.
  8. This is what I'm guesing as well. Keep an eye on Army's OC and possibly Utah's as well.
  9. Needless to say this is a BIG hire for Frost and the Nebraska program! Mickey Joseph is a respected wide receiver coach, and a proven exceptional recruiter. Solid strong hire for Nebraska, and much needed for Scott Frost.
  10. Spot on! I don't know how it will happen, but I honestly believe somehow the Great Plains schools, specifically the old Big 8 teams will find their way back into some kind of conference together. College football conferences will change dramatically again in the next 10 years, and definitely in the next 25 years. The money has been great for the schools that left their century old conferences, but the fans of many of those teams are beyond disgusted with the actual results on the football field. Nebraska should never, ever be in a "conference game" with the likes of Maryland or Rutgers. I don't know how it will happen but I don't see Nebraska staying in the Big Ten, and I think eventually Oklahoma will tire of being in the SEC.
