  1. JD was a very good player in MN and in Lincoln. Period. He will be missed but he will be replaced with another very good player(s). Until he publicly declares the reasons he had for leaving, I think it best the speculation be stopped. It is not good for any relevant parties whether accurate or not. People need some modicum of privacy and respect - its hard to find in too many places already. Wish him well and next man up!
  2. So, if anyone knows yet, how many pad / hitting practices are we allowed in our three weeks before game one? Still seems a short time to get get football ready?
  3. Based on the level of disappointment and disgust of the program generally (active response to the cancelled fall sports). With only a vague suggestion of spring ball, it had to be deflating for most players. Opponents had similar issues but we were coming off a long offseason and five years of mediocre results. It will be a big test to fire up a team to play a ohio state bunch with championship plans.
  4. Bo knows defense generally but if the schemes were relatively new, kids may not have been ready to run it well. Secondary is Bo’s strong suit but I always like his defense’s chances if he could manage to guess right a couple times and get the opponent into poor down/distance circumstances. He liked to gamble a lot. He probably has evolved some since spending so long at YSU - no pressure and less challenging offenses talent wise. A bevy of receivers and a quick release QB would be tough for Bo cause its a passing down all the time and i assume a fast tempo pace left little opportu
  5. Blocking and tackling are critical to ANY football team’s success or failure - no matter what scheme you use. Its been an issue for decades in Lincoln. Practice. Practice. Practice. It also helps a bunch to find players who do it well fundamentally to start with, then add S&C and good schemes and athletes who can run and you get winning football. Jimmys and Joes are critical first and foremost.
  6. It seems likely the 2020 offense will show some changes as we are in year 3 and most teams modify things just to keep defenses from from being able to zero in on certain tendencies and techniques. I would tend to think that a new run game coordinator and offensive / pass game coordinator suggests other new approaches. Play calling and even QB audibles should show changes as well. How many of these changes are major vs subtle is the question. In game 1 vs a team with few if any weaknesses to attack Frost has a tough chore. Probably try to get first downs if possible with more runs vs throw
  7. Lol. Who the hell ever said we should go anywhere else? Not me certainly. The pandemic is no longer a pandemic btw. There remains no reason to hurt every member (not just NU) by depriving all of any chance to cut losses. No doubt about the losses to nearly everybody but making the losses worse is just stupid. Believe what you want. I will do the same until a rational reason is given otherwise.
  8. Good luck to you. Thanks for being a Husker!
  9. Well, based on the near unanimous disagreement with most of my comments on all the damage being done to NU by the Big Ten. Nearly all question my numbers on the losses being imposed by no fans, no tickets, schedule cuts, etc.
  10. Hm. Not surprising to me but I suppose its a shocker for a lot of posters hereon. OSU has more other revenues ($ from apparel sales etc) than DONU but Moos may have made a few more cuts already. Lets hope the Big Ten finds a few hundred extra million from misc income or lost & found accts. lol
  11. Well, all you Big Ten booster clubbers can believe as you wish. But there is no way the Big Ten acted to minimize economic losses to the conference or any of its members infividually while providing virus protections for athletes in its charge. Having fans in stadiums poses no significant risk to the players or coaches etv who can easily be separated from each other.
  12. No. I did not say that although it iz hard to tell as the other 13 members remained silent early after the secret vote. Based on this, the rest of the league said NO to Neb going it alone to save the 50 million dollar loss. It appears OSU may have felt similarly. Iowa obviously is really suffering to drop sports and I believe others may as well. The current plan wont save Iowa’s sports and the combined -4 are still losing a big chunk. Even at 15,000 fans per game for 63 games at $50 = $47,000,000 in just ticket sales. Locally, a 3 X econ multiplier is $150 million. I have no way
  13. Its not the media’s job to guess what the Big Ten is doing or why. That is the Big Ten’s obligation. The Big Ten did very well at undermining itself. NU did everything possible to help the Big Ten avoid a terrible mistake which it made despite NU warnings. It took a hue and cry and lots of legal exposure to get a correction. If NU has to get Big Ten pre-approval to compete outside the conference than that needs fixed. I think its becoming apparent the Big Ten has little respect for or appreciation of Nebraska as a full fledged member even after 8 years and fu
  14. I dont dislike the Big Ten. I dont recall saying that once. They just do stupid things that hurt NU for no apparent reason other than spite or something. They hurt OSU and some others who actually wanted to play a normal season or as close as possible. Some wanted nothing to do with reg fall sports. All for one - one for all is all fine and dandy but when others dont want to do anything, no partner ought be penalized for acting reasonably outside the club.
  15. Everybody keeps missing the point: You join a conference to benefit yourself, not everybody else. There was no good reason ever expressed that I read as to why the Big Ten said NO to NU going on its own when the first cancel vote was taken with no plans otherwise and after the Big Ten summarily cancelled our non-con games. That punished NU for being a member while doing nothing to benefit the parnership / conference. Why?
