Three-Star Recruit

Three-Star Recruit (4/21)



  1. if helms and johnson are offensive skill players, it's not inconcievable to see that Mickey Joseph, who has a proven track record with skill position players, would have done better. unless there's something i'm missing.
  2. As far as I can see, based on who the new coaches are, the main benefits here that will address specific weaknesses are: attention to detail on offense, better recruiting at skill positions, and hopefully better line technique. It could also help with a true identity on offense and an ability to counter opponent adjustments. so for me, if everything else stays the same, that means an additional 3 wins at a minimum. These changes so far do not address the issues of defensive inconsistencies at times, special teams, head coach maturity, head coach ownership and accountability, and proper roster management.
  3. Probably unpopular, but coach Dawson has done a better job than coach Ruud, in my opinion.
  4. No it wouldn’t because a new coach finding and hiring a new staff is considered standard practice. A lame duck coach looking for top line assistants in his area of expertise for a 1 year contract is chaotic. it’s not particularly mathematical. Chaos doesn’t necessarily increase because there’s more positions to fill. Filling out the entire staff makes it more straightforward. When it comes to coaching staffs, Trying to hire 4 people for 5/6 roles is more chaotic than a blank slate of 10 people for 11/12 roles. This current head coach’s deficiencies makes things worse.
  5. I think you are confusing “chaos” with “talent search”. chaos is what Nebraska went through after solich was fired. Chaos is whatever seems to be going on in Lincoln now. Talent searches are always ongoing for any and all coaches with talent. Any decent coach will get headhunters calling them every offseason.
  6. Why would hiring a new full staff be chaotic? The amount of chaos depends only on the quality of leadership in charge of the hiring.
  7. I’m right there with you, cos I think frost should have been fired immediately after Minnesota. I would say p5/ranked experience should absolutely be a criterion. Not needing that experience from assistants is how we got here in the first place.
  8. Any stats on performance against top 25 and/or power 5 teams?
  9. After these last two games, my concern for frost is that he’s not a good enough leader to not get in the way of whoever he hires, especially if they are actually decent in their roles. I just don’t think he is savvy or humble enough to truly step back and allow other coaches to shine where he is weak, especially on game day.
  10. What makes us so confident that those players want to come here?
  11. The book is out on beating Scott frost coached teams: - they are going to get some yards. Don’t worry about that. Frost is a play design genius, but that’s it. when they need to score to tie they’ll shoot themselves in the foot. Take advantage. - you can count on their defense leaking at some point in the game for long scores. Take advantage. - they don’t really care about special teams. I mean, they say they do, but actions indicate they don’t. You could gain close to 200 hidden yards on them, maybe a score. - whatever your offense is, just don’t commit penalties. They alway sellout to stop one aspect of your offense. They will allow you to freely do what you don’t usually do. You could even set some records if you find out what they are allowing. - unless you are down by 4 scores with 2 mins left, you still have a great chance to win.
  12. I stopped watching after the safety so I could save myself.
  13. almost seems like vegas is testing husker fans in preparation for next year. i'm predicting an iowa blowout.
  14. Haha is that all it took to lose your support?
  15. ah. so you weren't actually looking for a response. i suppose i should have known better than to reply to your question. any other dismissive replies from your rollodex you wanna send me before i put you on ignore?
