  1. Brian to return as OC. Did anyone really expect him to fire his son? Yards/play ranking w/ Brian as OC 2017 #108 2018 #91 2019 #86 2020 #86 2021 #120 2022 #129 (out of 131)
  2. I think we are at 16 scholarship guys. Have to think at least 2 won't be here come fall. Sr - Washington, Fleeks, Kemp Jr - Brown, Hill, IGC So - Hardy, Betts RFr - Bonner, Jones Fr - Coleman, Doss, Turner, Lloyd, Charles, Bell
  3. I haven't heard about unlimited football scholarships, but the NCAA is considering additional scholarships for the sports that allow partial scholarships (basically every sport that is not football, m/w basketball, and w volleyball) as well as unlimited coaches for all sports. There would still be scholarship limits to those sports, but each school could choose if they want to fund up to that limit. For example baseball currently only allows 11.7 scholarships. The NCAA would say we now allow 25 scholarships for baseball. Then it would be up to each school to decide how many scholarships they want as long as it is not above the limits. This article from last April explains it https://www.si.com/college/2022/04/27/ncaa-new-transformation-committee-changes
  4. It all sounds great, but its not that feasible in practice to give kids a scholarship based on NIL. Tuition/housing + books + meals + football stipend has to be close to $60k/year. Then that would also be taxable, so now you're up to about $80k/year. Say you want to do this for 5 guys, so that is $400k. The money is finite. Wouldn't that $400k be better used to get 1-2 top players than to use on projects (numbers 86-90 on your roster)? Also, no kid is going to choose a NIL scholarship over a real scholarship. Real scholarships are guaranteed for 4 years per B1G rules. If you get hurt or don't want to play football anymore, a real scholarship can still let you go to school for free. Do you think if you get hurt and can't play anymore that there is still going to be a NIL scholarship for you?
  5. Yup. I could be talked into having a 75 or 80 cap. Less scholarships = more parity
  6. Yup. We currently have 13 of "Covid seniors", and we are over the limit by 16 or so.
  7. Callahan said they are now doing cleans and snatches whereas where under Duval they little to none of those 2 lifts.
  8. Glancing at that list and not naming names, I could easily see 15 gone. QB 2 RB 1 WR 2 TE 2 OL 1 DL 1 LB 2 DB 4
  9. Meaning "there ain't gonna be one like it for 5 years" is totally BS
  10. UF just opened a new facility this past summer. A&M is in the process of building a new facility that will open in a couple years.
  11. It will be interesting to see what this looks like come fall. I know the 101 will become 85, so the 147 will automatically become 131. But 131 is still way to many kids IMO. I think the sweet spot is somewhere around 105-110 (about 5 walk-ons/year).
  12. Regarding using NIL to get to 85, I am not a fan of that. There is a finite amount of NIL dollars. I would much prefer that money keeping the "stars" of the team happy or bringing in high profile transfers instead giving a "NIL pseudo-scholarship" to 3rd/4th stringers that are the 86th through 90th best players on the team.
  13. A) The NU football team is a $100M corporation. It should be ran like that and not a place we they are taking marginal kids because it was their dream to play at NU. With the transfer portal you can just grab these kids out of FCS/DII after they have proven themselves. B) Too many walk-ons lead to a bloated roster where there are so many 4th/5th/6th stringers that younger players don't get the proper development due to lack of reps and 1 on 1 coaching. (And don't tell me that TO ran 6 stations every practice. That was 30+ years ago).
  14. I want to believe it will be a real game, but we only have 5 or 6 DTs on the roster. And one of them was last seen with his arm in a sling (Robinson).
  15. The blue stroke around the numbers, meanwhile, is a nod to the blue jerseys the Cornhuskers wore in the first game at Memorial Stadium – a 24-0 win over Oklahoma on Oct. 13, 1923 – as a courtesy to the Sooners, who also wear a shade of red. https://news.sportslogos.net/2023/01/20/nebraska-to-celebrate-100th-anniversary-of-memorial-stadium-with-throwback-uniforms/college/
  16. The 1962 throwbacks we wore in 2009.
  17. Looks like leftover Kansas uniforms that they added some shoulder flair to. We’ve had 1 good alternate jersey. The last couple years it feels like Adidas/NU football isn’t even trying.
  18. Same with my Ariens snowblower and Toro mower. At the end of the season I add some Sta-Bil and then run each out of gas. For the mower I change the oil every spring and clean the air filter a few times a year. For the blower it is a b!^@h to change the oil, so I take it into the shop every 3-4 years and they change oil and inspect everything (I think last time they put a new belt on it). Also a tip (at least I think this is true) is that I bought my blower at a locally owned equipment shop (not a big box store). and I do think they give me better customer service when I do bring it in every few years since they know I bought it there.
  19. No chance he waits until the fall to decide. He will have a decision most likely by end of May.
