  1. Crossovers with 4-5 Rutgers, 2-7 Indiana, and 8-1 Michigan is better than crossovers with a 8-1 MSU, 8-1 Mich, and 5-4 Maryland. It will be easier that Oklahoma is off the schedule, but still more difficult than the 2022 schedule. The irony of talking about this though is that if you had an elite coach and a team you could rely on, you wouldn't need to worry about what the schedule looks like, you just go and get wins. But here we are...
  2. Given Frost's history, im worried that if we keep him next year, he manages to squeak out and get to a bowl game due to an "easier" schedule. This allows him to come back in 2023 with a harder schedule and we see similar outcomes to this year leading to him being fired. That puts us two years behind. I think you give a new coach a shot this year and they can come into the "easier" schedule to get on the right foot and move forward with their own style/methods.
  3. I learned that this team has more motivation than any 3-7 team I've ever seen. Proud they haven't checked out. My knowledge has been reinforced that: 1. Scott Frost is not the man for Nebraska. He proves time and time again that he can be outcoached regardless of which team has momentum and no matter how many mistakes an opposing side makes. 2. I will have to continue to explain to people why being "close enough" and "almost there" is a load of crap, especially when you drop games to Illinois, Minnesota, and Purdue. 3. There is no such thing as moral victories. 4. Frost needs to go.
  4. Ohio State left a lot of points off the board against Penn State. They could've easily scored over 50+ last week. I don't like being pessimistic, but Ohio State needs style points to continue to impress the CFP committee and I won't be surprised if they put up 50 or more and slaughter us. I'm getting 2017 Ohio State at Nebraska vibes
  5. We ask for a chance that's fair
  6. I posted this in another thread as well, but in my opinion this board really underestimates how hard it is to be a QB with bad line play. We have few comparisons of what Vedral and McCaffrey have done when AM is sitting out. I bet if either Vedral or McCaffery played the majority of the season they would be looking just like AM. It's almost like we forget that we have coaches that do this for a living. They see things that we dont. The issue is the O-line, and it will make a great QB look average. We have freshman on the line, a tight-end playing center, and a tackle out of position. Anyone that has played football will know how hard it is to be a QB with bad line play. Everything is more stressful, nothing coms easy, there is no rhythm, and you end up relying way to much on the playmakers. Unfortunately our average/good playmakers can't overcome this all the time. How many times this year did we actually drive the ball, a true football drive? I don't have the stats but based on what I saw, a lot of times we would score because we would rely on big plays. This is because of the play-makers. We won't be good again until we establish the O-line. Do you remember the drive Wisconsin had against us in the 3rd quarter where they marched all the way down the field with 10+ plays, 7-8 yards here and there, mostly runs, and burned clock. Thats what an o-line can give you. Given that we are Nebraska, if we can establish the O-line play, alongside our playmakers we will be really really good. Until then... any QB will struggle.

  8. I’m really enjoying the adjustments from last week and this week by running the ball just outside the tackles instead of in between, it’s allowed Mills to go beast mode.
  9. Okay, where is he? I know he is here in PBA. Where is he? Tim miles where are you, I know you are secretly coaching.
  10. My hope this year is we prove the BIG ten analysts wrong and finish above Rutgers. Everyone should finish above Rutgers.
  11. I didn't know I had taken drugs this morning until I watched that video... woah.
  12. I agree with both you, Nebfanatic and Husker in WI. I don't know, I just feel that with an ELITE coach you should see higher jumps in defensive improvement when giving up that many points given the competition we are facing. I know he has only seen 21 games and a lot of this stems from me being impatient and yelling at my TV every-time I see our guys miss tackles, over-run tackles, and miss reads. He will definitely have another year and probably a fourth given his tie with Scott, but like all of us.. I just hope we see a lot of improvement.
  13. Well for one the number of points overall.... I think its a little easier to lower some PPG when you are giving up 30 every-game as opposed to 10-20
  14. Yeah I agree with you. Chin would be easier to analyze but he hasn't been anywhere more than two years 2014 Oregon- 23 2015 Oregon- 37.2 2016 UCF- 26.7 2017 UCF- 24.7 2018 NEB- 33.3 2019 NEB- 29.1 I hope year three has a dramatic flip somehow but its just hard too see..
