  2. Alberts has a clear goal and is not doing this just to make the news. Change was needed and doing it now will maybe instill confidence in the guys. Deonte Williams had a few big wins at USC when he took over. I don't recall if they made a bowl game but they played much better after Helton was fired. To me, Frost had some things that defined his time here. 1 Would eventually get out coached by the 4th quarter/ late in the game. 2 Wanted to focus on offense since that was his expertise and not worry about other facets of the game. It took until year 5 to make big changes and they were on offense. 3 He wanted the players council or leaders to discipline for him. Hence why he always talked about things never getting to the coaches and for the players to hold each other accountable. He never wanted to worry about it. That probably lead to some problems. 4 Rarely developed players, this is why we had to raid the portal because all the talent was not ready. Most of the development happened on defense while the offensive players either stayed the same or regressed some. Lots of talent eventually left and hit the portal to actually get better.
  3. Rumor has it Frost lost the fight by one score. Further cementing his fate.
  4. Dan Mullen with a solid D-coordinator would be interesting. He could win a lot of games here against the Big Ten West. Bill O'Brien is going to be one of the top choices. Lance Leipold is one to watch for sure. If he can get Kansas to 7-8 wins, he can do that and more here. At the very least he can get us back to winning football games. I do not know Matt Rhule's age but he would be solid. Lane would be a meme hire but would win here. Jeremey Chadwell could come here but we already tried the great G5 coach route.
  5. Not having a dedicated D-line coach is hurting us. Dawson double dipping with two positions has been a part of it. With that, no replacement for snacks and other stud D-lineman. We are basically sending a JV team to rush the QB. Teams are honing in on our big boy pass rushers because they know they can one on one the D-line players easily. I mean we had 5 in the box a lot of plays. Chins was daring them to run it on us. Frost will be gone in October, he had his chance to make his staff changes. It is too late for that now.

  7. Nebraska 45 North Dakota 13 Pass-358 Rush-227
  8. If Frost is fired, he needs to go to the Nick Saban school of coaches who don't coach good. That would help him tremendously. Even if he were hired as a WR coach or co-OC. 1 Big name guy- Kiffin is someone I would love to have and he was born here. (Aranda, Fickell, Campbell would be great too) 2 Former HC now OC- Bill O'brien- after the Saban schooling could get us back to winning. He also sees what a championship looking team looks like. 3 The Solid hire- Lance Leipold- has won everywhere he went and would get us back to consistency. If he can get Kansas to 7-8 wins this year I would believe he can get us to those seasons and more. 4 The in house hire- Mickey Joseph/ Whipple - keep almost all the staff intact, hire a few new coaches and see what we can do. After the onside kick, maybe Frost is holding this team back.
  9. Wide receivers looks good. Vokolek was really good. Definite drop-off after the top guys for WR/TE. Wyatt Liewer is an amazing person and player. There is no reason he should have been on the field trying to win the game on that last drive. Where is Rahmir Johnson? Why did we start off in zone for pass defense? Special teams did everything it needed to until Frost needed to give his input. O-line did better than I expected. Secondary needs work. LBers look okay and D-line needs to get better. If we can't get a pass rush with one of our edges it could be a long season. If this is an even year Northwestern- like that last few ones, we will be fine. However, we are really great at beating ourselves instead of the opposition.
  10. Looks like I did not remember Rahmir getting hurt. Now, I remember that at Minnesota as I rewatched pat of that game. (Credit to suh_fan93) There was also something with Yant where he refused to come in and so the coaches did not like that. It may have been when Ron Brown took over or right before so that affected his touches some. A 1-2 punch of RJ and Anthony Grant with Yant for goal line/short yardage is what I believe will happen. What do you think the rotation will be Mav?
  11. This is where we have to be better. Luckily, it is getting ironed out in fall camp. However, during the year we cannot have these demoralizing turnovers or drivers where we get 60 yards and turn it over or miss points. Another thing is there will not be as much qb run in the redzone as we saw last year. With Adrian it made sense but with CT the staff has to find other ways to get the ball in the endzone. Most likely bigger backs like Yant or rpo to a TE leaking out etc.
  12. Rahmir was our best blocking back last year. That is why you saw him on 3rd down or obvious passing situations. You are correct about his receiving being the best out of our RB room. I don't know who the best back is but you can be sure Rahmir will be on the field the most out of the running backs because of his utility, and trust/ experience as Big ERN said. Anthony Grant is most likely the #2 back and Yant/Ervin will battle it out for reps as the #3 back. We also do not want to be predictable so rbs need to be able to do it all out of the back field. I also think we will have a clear 1-2 punch and not a lot of musical chairs like we saw last year. This will get the best guys touches and they will get in a rhythm.
  13. Iowa is not harder to beat. We have played them closer than Wisconsin under Frost. They are more beatable and I think we are due for one against them. If you meant why is Iowa easier to beat. Look at the scores below. They are much closer to beating Iowa under Frost then Wisconsin. 2018: 31-28- Lost off a game winning field goal 2019: 27-24- Lost off a game winning field goal 2020: 26-20 - Nebraska was driving until a Martinez fumble at midfield 2021: 28-21- Nebraska was in the red zone and in scoring position to win/tie until a pick was thrown by Smothers. Under very unlikely we win, I have Wisconsin. We have only been close one year against them (2021) under Frost. They have dominated us at the line of scrimmage but we have hung around and put up yards against them. They have just been better than Nebraska. Defensively, Nebraska has struggled the most against Wisconsin outside of OSU. This is why Wisconsin is more difficult to beat.
  14. I still see us as 4th in the West, which puts us middle of the pack. I think 7-5 retains Frost. Why? Because he will be 5-5 versus p5 competition. The other two games he is expected to win. I think for every bad loss he has this year (Illinois or Indiana) he has to have a big win (Iowa, Wisconsin, OU). I am riding on the 7-5 train. If he can't do that this year we deserve to go out and get us a coach that can. The schedule does not get easier for him. You should find 5 wins against Northwestern Purdue Indiana Rutgers Illinois Minnesota Iowa Very unlikely Wisconsin OU Michigan
  15. In Economics, the ceiling is the floor and the floor is the ceiling. Talking about price floors and price ceilings of course. I am of the belief that you cannot really predict how the season will go until after the Northwestern game. It can make a huge difference on the outcome of the season. Confidence is key as the team will come back fired up after a win or sluggish after a loss. We have lost six straight games and that needs to be ended right away so there is no doubt on the team we are better this year. A one score loss would be an absolute nightmare for this team.
  16. There are so many ways/variables that could impact how the season goes. 1 Wisconsin- I believe it is Wisconsin's to lose again- last year they lost it by laying an egg against Minny. 2 Iowa- Think they find a way to sneak into the top 3 this year. Could be lower if they do not upset some East teams. 3 Purdue- Easier schedule helps and they may take a step back some. Do they get some spooky win this year at night? 4 Nebraska- Does Nebraska beat themselves? Could make us higher or lower. I have us in the middle. 5 Minnesota- No qb, a wildcard this year as they were close to making it to Indy last year. 6 Northwestern- Not very confident in them to do much better but they take a small step forward. 7 Illinois- Took some teams by surprise and that will not happen this year. In my mind, 2-5 is interchangeable. Heck, 3-7 could be in any order as well. My prediction is for Nebraska to go 7-5.
  17. Well, its a stepp in the right direction to get it down to that number.
  18. Yes, and most of the broadcast will be about the future of Westbrook, LeBron eating snacks, where is AD, and look at the new Lakers coach Darwin Ham. I mean it was bad the first game they did with LA. Panning to LeBron and co all the time. However, he is the money maker for them haha. Hope Bryce can build on his last game and continue to do well. He had a great debut!
  19. Sadly, the Thunder kind of filled up and decided to go in another direction. OKC has too many wings and longer players they can use. The Thunder are my favorite team and I was very hyped to see Roby do some amazing things this year. The Spurs will be a great fit for him to develop and learn from coach Pop while they rebuild with a younger core. I think he will excel and wonder how he will respond when Pop gets on him for making a mistake. At the very least, he has the best coach in the league coaching him and that can take his game to another level.
  20. This is not the end to expansion and one of the Power 5 conferences will fold. I would expect Power 4 Conferences, a next 2 conferences and the rest. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. If the B1G expands anymore we could take Notre Dame and probably Kansas or an ACC dark horse. Power 4 1 Big Ten 2 SEC 3 Big 12 4 ACC Next 2 5 AAC 6 Mountain West G4 7-10/ The remaining conferences
  21. He is also on a four year deal still. The Nets can get an absolute haul for him. The other catch is they have all the cards so they can drive up his value by leaking things to reporters. I think he ends up a Phoenix Sun. They can give a big haul for him while keeping CP3, Book, Johnson, and other guys. They could also sign a few vet minimums to fill out their roster. Outside of Phoenix, it would be Miami, Minnesota, possibly Portland or Chicago. Memphis has a lot of assets, but I'm not sure they want to trade all of them to have Ja and Durant. The ripple effect is going to be huge because after Durant is traded, Kyrie is next on the block. The Nets could still get a solid team out of trading both guys.
  22. It was a fun series to watch. I wish it would have went to 7 but I believe the Celtics just ran out of gas. I would love to see a Buck-Warriors Finals before Curry is done. That would be a fun watch in the future. I believe they could easily make it back next year. I wonder if Lebron moves to another team to try and not let Curry beat him in number of Championships.
  23. I am not sure if there is a perfect landing spot for Bryce per se. However, the best fit for him in my mind is the San Antonio Spurs. They are a young team that is rebuilding and they have proven time and again that they can develop players. He would also be getting coached by one of, if not the best coach in the league. The proven track record will give him his best shot at making it in the league for a long time. Another team would be the Golden State Warriors as he would learn to move without the ball and play together. He would get some time on that team as they like to rest their starters during the year.
