    JUCO CB Tony Wallace [TCU Commit]

    I almost wonder if he is a plan B for us, maybe Noa’s backup? Seems like we haven’t pushed overly hard for his commit and there were plenty of opportunities for him to commit.

    RB Rahmir Johnson [Nebraska Commit]

    Very very good RB. However, I think he could improve his footwork on some jukes/cuts, he looks like he gets a bit of happy feet and I’d like to see him be more decisive/explosive. But something minor that can be improved upon.

    Spring Practice Notes

    Highly unlikely Honas participates in spring practice, might do some individual drills but doubt he will be practicing. As far as players that will impress, I think Andre Hunt could have a good spring, hopefully McQuitty will too.

    CB Tavian Mayo

    I think Newsome could be a CB as well

    DB Quinton Newsome [Nebraska Commit]

    Our most underrated/under appreciated recruit IMO. He’s gonna be a good one

    WR Charles Njoku

    Well I’m assuming that David Njoku is his brother, who went to Miami as a TE and was a 1st round draft pick. So him being considered a Miami lean is understandable

    Tim Miles Hot Seat Watch

    A bit too early for these discussions but heard a bit on the radio and figured why not. My top top choices for coaching replacements are 1. Dana Altman - have to at least ask him first with his connections to Neb 2. Fred Hoiberg then not sure after that
  8. Would be the best move for the big ten in my opinion. Who knows what sort of football playoff system will be in place at that point but will give the big ten more reputation and the bias in the rankings that the $EC seems to undeservedly get every year.

    What did we learn: Iowa edition?

    You’re right, we should stop running a play that consistently worked throughout the day. And if only that darn Mario would teach AM not to throw into tight coverage, I’m surprised no one has thought of that yet. But in all seriousness, he threw 1 bad pass in a game with 30+ pass attempts as a true freshman on the road against a good defense. Lighten up Francis.

    Defensive Philosophy

    We have a handful of players on offense that are considered NFL level talent. Can that be said for anyone on the defense at this point? There’s your answer. Need more time to recruit/develop. Right now our defense’s best chance at getting stops is via turnovers or big plays so hence the emphasis on that.

    JUCO LB Amare Barno [Virginia Tech Commit]

    Absolutely would take him. Pretty natural athlete, reminds me a bit of the Gregory tape. Probably going to blow up fast.

    Who's Had Their Husker Moment?

    Stan’s game winning TD catch last year at Purdue probably qualifies

    Offensive line play

    My current guess is we see more of Farmer at Center and Wilson in at RG. Too bad of a performance against Troy to not change anything. As far as next season, I think Farniok profiles better as a guard long term. The addition of Desmond Bland will be huge, that guy can play. I see Jaimes, Wilson, Bland, Farniok and Sichterman (or JuCo OT) being our line next year.

    Final Vote - who takes the 1st snap at QB?

    I get the sense that this QB battle is more of choosing between 2 solid players that have performed well instead of choosing between the lesser of 2 evils QB battle (ie Armstrong/Fyfe/OBrien)

    WR Wandale Robinson [Nebraska Commit]

    I see a lot of Ameer Abdullah in his game, obviously a good thing. Elite quickness and agility, slightly undersized but strong and runs with some power, lacks elite top end speed but still a great playmaker.
  16. Roger Dorn

    Mikale Wilbon

    I think one of the things that helps Ozigbo is that he is a pretty good pass catcher out of the backfield. I think he could be a good red zone option for us with his size and ability to catch.

    LB Jahmar Brown [South Carolina Commit]

    I I guess I didn’t realize there was so much intrigue in a player’s thread who no one has commented on in over a month. I actually follow the recruiting forums pretty closely but I don’t have a lot of interest in all these updates that have zero connection to Nebraska.

    QB Michael Johnson, Jr. [Penn State Commit]

    Was impressed on his film with how much touch he throws with on his passes. However, would also like to see a bit more zip and pure arm strength in some places too. Overall great athlete, would be solid as a QB or if he ended up switching positions.

    Who has a big day today?

    I’ll go with Gebbia grabbing a lead in the QB race. Along with Bell and Mo Barry each also having a big game.

    POB...still in the QB room?

    Completely speculation here but anyone raise an eyebrow about Martinez’ comment about the QB competition about “just having to be a good person” Again totally speculation and could mean nothing but the possibility exists that he could’ve been referencing something.

    QB Terrance Gipson [SMU Commit]

    Film is actually pretty impressive. I would be alright with this.

    Zac Taylor vs Tommy Armstrong

    Zac Taylor is probably the best QB we’ve had in the last 15 years

    The Running Back Room

    Back on track a bit here. I’ll say Greg Bell ends the season with the most carries. Ozigbo, Washington and Bryant/Bradley will all have a role and contribute.

    QB Position Switches

    Frost has stated multiple times that the key for his QB to be successful is they have to make quick, smart decisions. Gebbia was loved by the previous staff for staying late, studying the playbook and his knowledge seemed evident with his spring game performance and in fall camp. Not saying that any of the other QBs couldn’t do this as well but that’s why I personally put Gebbia as the favorite.
