  1. A litany of problems which would more than likely be solved or get significantly better if we get better/dominant line play...aka, better running game and better pass protection that would result in more time to find open recievers, sustain drives, make better decisions and let routes develop. We have skill players that are more than adequate and Adrian has shown flashes of greatness.
  2. I hear ya. I'm all about inovation and evolution IF it's at least comparable, if not better than the established way of doing things. He did make mention that most of the top rushing teams in college and the pros run zone blocking (Wisconsin, Iowa, Minn in our own League). I'm not an O line play aficionado so I'm just taking him at his word. Scott also talked about lack of nastiness in the presser. Who knows, maybe we if we taught our guys to maul the guy in front of you and steal his soul on every play, they would be more, well...nasty I guess.
  3. All Austin is doing is teaching the Scott frost blocking scheme. His coaching career is pretty solid from what I can tell. When you don't block O line with the intent to completely destroy the man in front of you and your looking to open up seams, this is what you get. If your not listening to the husker doc talk podcast, you should check it out. Rob really breaks it down; the guy knows a thing or 2 about O line play. it makes sense. Ive said in the past Austin should be shown the door because it's ultimately his job to get the results out of the system but Scott needs to realize zone blocking is the way to go.
  4. God I miss Bo... especially the early days.
  5. Who do we hire? No one. Scott should be retained. Unless we get a slam dunk, grand slam coach, we are just repeating the cycle by hiring another bum. We put in way too much time with Scott to get OTJ training here to figure it out to just cut him loose after he starts getting traction. We just went toe to toe with #3 and #20 on the road and could/should be undefeated. This isn't our year obviously, BUT with a legit ST coach and if Scott can humble himself and Install a zone blocking scheme vs whatever the hell he is running now we will win these types of games. Austin probably isn't the problem since he is being asked to coach Scotts O line blocking scheme vs blowing guys off the ball with zone.
  6. Everyone wants Scott to turn it around. At a minimum there needs to be a change at the ST and O line coaching level. Who knows if he has the contacts or desire to bring in legit position coaches. Scott looks beat down and miserable pretty much all the time and it doesn't look like he has the will to continue much longer. As far as the O-line being young, as Rob Zatiscka pointed out on his podcast, most of those guys got playing time under their belts (some significant time) and in his estimation are not blocking to blow the other guy off the line, but more to open seams which may be what they are being asked to do vs not having the ability or talent.
  7. Exactly this. We need upgrades at ST and O-line at the very least which is a coaching move that will not happen this year but hopefully will next season. I've said it before, I'll say it again. Unless we hire an elite Coach/staff, best plan on 5-10 years on a rebuild.
  8. KYLE VANTREASE, QB for buffalo. He was awfully efficient last week and we have a tendency to make average QBs all look like Patrick mahomes around here.
  9. I think your missing the point of the post, but yes, you are correct; 18-19 and 19-19 are better than 12-21. I can see I won't be beating you in a Battle of wits any time soon LoL
  10. "After his opening three years in the Pac-12 in which the program went 18-19 overall and 9-18 in conference play, the Utes have been one of the best teams in the Pac-12. They've won nine games and finished better than .500 in conference play in six of the past seven seasons." So, he walked in to a good situation by taking over a team established by Urban Myer, jumped from a Jr conference to a power 5 and sucked or was painfully mediocre for a few years, the program stuck with him, he figured it out and now he's one of the best coaches in the country? Pretty much sounds like the exact situation we find ourselves in now, less knowing what the future will hold and having bare cupboards at the outset, not to mention a COVID year. IDK, when you actually look at it, it's not really that impressive.
  11. I have never seen Scott coaching players up on the sidelines that I can ever think of. He just stands there with his arms folded with no expression on his face.
  12. 6-6...we need to sign this guy ASAP!
  13. Bo Pelini (9 wins a year was nice) Bob stoops Neither of the above will happen so we will end up with some Bum or a coordinator that is making the jump up to head coach. Let's all just hope Scott gets his s#!t together because the alternatives ain't good. Trev says he wants to see incremental improvements and the bar is pretty low. I am guessing Scott stays this year and next.
  14. Just move on to acceptance and go dead inside like the rest of us. It's easier.
