  1. Any guess on who this is? Hornsby? Matt Rhule liked this post.
  2. Any idea why Dominic is in Lincoln to help with recruiting?
  3. So far I like this hire and the RB hire the most by Rhule. I am glad most of the old coaches are gone as the best way to change a culture is to clean out and start anew.
  4. Good find. Definitely a different response from the prior fan base than we saw with the OC hire who seemed to have mixed views about Satterfield leaving. I like when the opposing fan base is upset we landed one of their coaches.
  5. Syracuse 29th in total defense and 35th in scoring defense this past season. https://www.ncaa.com/stats/football/fbs/current/team/22
  6. Spot on. The OL did not show hardly any improvement under Raiola as the season went on. I am curious what Rhule saw in him that said he was the BEST candidate to lead our OL moving forward.
  7. I would love to see a Leonhard-led Husker defense take it to Wisconsin.
  8. I sure hope Rhule did not retain Donovan because of Dominic's past history with the program and because his sons are potential recruits.
  9. I don't know enough about Schumann or Robinson's approach to defense so I would lean toward Leonhard who has proven to be successful in the BIG AND should be able to land better recruits than he did at Wisconsin. Nebraska often ends up with a higher 247 team ranking than Wisconsin.
  10. So between Leonhard, Schumann or Robinson, who would you want as DC?
  11. He would be newer as a DC but brings a lot of swagger to the defense.
  12. I am not sure if this was posted before, but there appears to be a connection between the likely OLB coach and Schumann. https://huskercorner.com/2022/12/05/nebraska-football-rob-dvoracek/
  13. This is why I said earlier in this thread that HR for Husker Athletics is not raising enough red flags, or else they are and the administration is overlooking it. If Frost had issues with drinking and was missing visits for key recruits, that is something that in most organizations would result in immediate termination (if it's impacting job performance). I cannot imagine these habits just started late in his 4th season too and it explains a lot for why this team continued to lose games. As for Joseph, I agree with you that his past misconduct at a minimum should have caused pause in bringing him on as a coach, and if anybody in HR or the athletic administration knew the full story, it likely would have meant passing on him taking over as interim HC.
  14. That's a good point. Not sure if that is the case every year for AF's offense as their defense often ranks in the top 40. Also, Iowa State's D has ranked high the past few years. There DC (Jon Heacock) is a bit older but learned under Jim Tressel and has tons of experience.
  15. Rhule has had Phil Snow at most of his stops (Temple, Baylor and Carolina). If it were Snow, I would assume we would know by now unless they are dealing with contractual issues with Carolina. I am hoping it's Schumann or some other big name. Here are the top defenses this year. I scanned through a couple of names and Illinois' DC got a pay raise and is now making just over $1M. Kentucky's DC (Brad White) is making $1.4M. There is room for Schumann to grow his salary and I am guessing he would cost up to $1.5M to land him. There are quite a few good DC's to steal from other BIG teams. Air Force's DC has coached at other P5 schools so he could be an option too. https://www.covers.com/sport/football/ncaaf/statistics/team-defense/2022-2023
  16. Given Schumann is a co-DC and making $800,000 a year, perhaps the ability to be sole DC and have a pay raise would bring him along.
  17. Given how bad Frost drove this program into the ground, it's going to take time before we see results. I fully expect us to only win a few games again in 2023 due to the number of new players and coaches we will have in the program. Rhule has shown that Year 3 is when we should really start to see improvements in the win column, so I intend to give him some time to work this out. This doesn't mean I won't be critical in some games, but at the macro level he deserves time.
  18. With USC losing, we could see 2 BIG teams make the playoff. I would love to see Ohio State sneak in at #4 and knock off Georgia! Thoughts on the CFP?
