    2019 Spring Game - April 13 @ 1:00 CDT on BTN

    Ha. Jamal Turner was never going to be a quarterback. What's more I'm not suggesting any kind of position switch. Just a few situational packages to get the kid on the field in a role to use his exceptional abilities to impact the games in which we might need another impact player to get us to the finish line. Think Suh as an RB/ Lead Blocker in goal line packages. Also it wouldn't be the first time a BIG team has used their back up qb as a wide receiver. Didn't Wisconsin or Michigan to that with a ton of success a few years back?

    Ok, so McCaffrey is a QB. He's also probably one of the fastest guys on the team and has a qb's understanding of the game. He has 4 games to play this year, while still preserving his redshirt. In the spirit of getting the best players on the field, why would we leave him on the bench in a back up qb role for those 4 games? Why not get him ready at receiver for Ohio State, Wisconsin, Purdue, and Iowa? Instead of getting meaningless snaps, get him in the games that matter most to make an impact.

      Sounds like the guy who pumped a bunch of $ into the AAF recently, was more interested in the gambling app which the league is developing.  He just wanted that intellectual property.

      I was reading an article on The Athletic about the failure of the AAF, and it was mentioned that Billy Devaney was GM of the Atlanta Legends.  Man, with another Riley tie, should we really be surprised the AAF went under?

  3. Love run, rooting for the Huskers, but this run of wins really underscores how badly the team under-performed in the back half of the season. Looks to me like Miles underutilized his bench players since the non-conference. Might still have a few more wins and available players if Miles had rested the top dawgs and gotten the bench more playing time and confidence.
  4. Refs got the memo that Maryland is supposed win this game.... look a that second half foul discrepancy.

    This would be an out of this world addition to the team. Man alive Okie St.'s starting nose tackle, Oklahoma's starting LB- Big 12 is turning into the Nebraska farm league haha. http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=31000&ATCLID=211063722

    Cam Jurgens NOT injured again

    I don't know that Pelini did the same thing. He seemed to go after quite a few Nebraska guys. Pelini screwed up by only offering preferred walk-ons to class c and d Nebraska kids. Iowa benefited from this by getting Nathan Bazata and Drew Ott- I'm sure there are others. But I don't think he neglected Nebraska to near the extent Callahan and Riley did.

    Never noticed before, but if you watch closely, he's running with a limp. That makes the run even more impressive.

    Martinez was still named Big 10 Offensive Player of the year as a RS Junior, and had climbed into the Heisman convo before he "kicked the locker," as the rumor is and lost the rest of his senior year.

    Fear of Hype/ Jinx

    For some reason, I thought it was worse than this for Abdullah. He only missed the rest of this game, Abdullah ran for only one yard on six carries before he was injured in the first quarter in a 35–14 win over the Purdue Boilermakers.[64] Pelini told reporters after the game that Abdullah had suffered a "mild" MCL sprain and bruise when he tried to recover a fumbled snap by the quarter back on a fourth down at the Purdue one-yard line. When asked, Pelini said that he was optimistic that Abdullah would be ready to play the Wisconsin Badgers on November 15, but he added he couldn't say for sure whether he would be able to play.[65] Maybe it was my fear that he'd go back down, or the fact that I don't think he was quite the same in the following games that made me think it was worse.

    Fear of Hype/ Jinx

    Alright, I love all of the preseason love Nebraska is getting, seeing national articles, a preseason top 25 ranking, all of it. But, and I may be alone here, with each article I read, I keep getting more and more nervous about our team next year. It seems that every year we get hype, or in particular one of our players get hyped, it ends bad for that player, and ultimately the team. Let's analyze. Tommy Armstrong - senior season injury Jordan Westerkamp - senior season injury Randy Gregory- tons of hype, senior season injury Ameer Abullah - senior season injury Rex Burkhead - senior season injury Taylor Martinez - senior season injury the list goes on - each of these guys received a good amount of hype in the preseason before their injury, just to have their season cut short. Now Martinez is getting all this hype... whats with this jinx. Will we break it.

    Until you are on the 10 yard line and need a td to win... short field, speed is negated.

    Worst Call Ever In A Husker Game

    There was this one, and then I believe a similar situation against Michigan St. a few years ago as well.

    Ozigbo to Play in East-West Shrine Game

    We're getting used to seeing Nebraska running backs getting drafted only to be misused, unused, or put behind terrible lines by the teams that draft them. Roy Helu - Although he spent time injured at Washington, it seemed like he was penalized and lost his position every time he came back. Rex Burkhead - Bengals barely used him - All the better for the Pats. I had hoped he'd get drafted there in the first place - great fit. Abudllah - Lions- do they even have an o-line? - Hoping he catches on somewhere quick - he's too good to not be on the field. Don't think Vikings is the best fit though. I'm eager to see a Husker RB drafted and put to work. I'm going to caveat this by saying, I'm not a fan of their's but I'd love to see Ziggy playing for the Chiefs. I think it'd be a great fit and he'd tear it up for them. What say you Huskerboard?
