    2019 Super Six

    1. Wandale - gimme 2. Benhart - elite OT prospect could be 4 year starter 3. Henrich - day 1 contributor, haven’t had a prospect with his size/athleticism at ILB in awhile 4. Hannah - same as Henrich 5. Rahm it Johnson - game changer at RB, speed kills 6. Quinton Newsome - gut feeling here Sleeper: Myles Farmer, as stated above, going to be an OLB in a year or two and be special

    Tim Miles Hot Seat Watch

    Didn’t technically leave the program as he never made it but losing Xavier Johnson when Kenya left really hurt. Averaging like 18 a game right now for Pitt

    OLB Eugene Asante [North Carolina - Signed LOI]

    I think that’s a good comparison, maybe even an Eric Martin type role too. Could also see Breon Dixon in that role this year too. Definitely a fan of getting more overall athleticism on the field.

    OLB Eugene Asante [North Carolina - Signed LOI]

    Obviously a talented player and would love to have him. But do we think he will be a true OLB for us? Could be a pass rush specialist type of guy I suppose.

    Way Too Early 2019 Depth Chart

    Not bad. My guess on the o-line starters will be Jaimes, Wilson, Raridon, Farniok, Benhart from left to right. Center is the biggest question in my book.

    Katerian Legrone's potential at WR

    He will be similar to the role that Jordan Akins played for UCF last year. Athletic TE that creates a lot of mismatches.

    Replacements for Miles

    First choices. Altman and Hoiberg. After that, I’d consider a top assistant from an elite school over a mid major HC. I’d rather have a coach that’s done it before at a major school than risk it with another mid-major guy.

    Well obviously. But both Baker and Kyler could be considered “pass first” guys, where Hurts is more of a “run first”. Will probably still be good but I’m willing to bet he won’t be as good of a fit as the last 2 have been.

    JUCO CB Tony Wallace [TCU - Signed LOI]

    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 - Signed LOI]

    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 [West Virginia - Signed LOI]

    I think Newsome could be a CB as well

    DB Quinton Newsome [Nebraska - Signed LOI]

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

    WR Charles Njoku [UCLA Commit]

    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
  16. 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 - Signed LOI]

    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 - Signed LOI]

    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.
  24. 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 - Signed LOI]

    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.
