    Chinander by the numbers

    Now you are simply arguing semantics. It is ok to be wrong. We all are wrong at some point. For example, I pray to God that I am wrong about Chinander because I love my Huskers and want them to dominate the BIG more than I want to be right. Honest to God, I want nothing but for us to go undefeated next year and stick it to every BIG team and the BIG cheating zebras. For that to happen Chinanader needs to do some major work. Let us see if he can.

    Chinander by the numbers

    We consistently allowed every opposing running back to have the game of their season against us. So, no, I do not think this is enough. Iowa had a plan to stop Ozigbo and they did. We had no plan against Sargent who beat us and was a one man recking crew. You also thought that we can easily beat Iowa when I pointed out that beating them in their own backyard on senior day will require a complete game on our end, which we did not do. So, forgive me if I refuse to believe that Chinander will be our long term solution. Again, I am more than happy to give the guy a second year but my gut feeling is that we will continue to debate his ability to come up with game plans that stop opposing teams and their best players.

    Chinander by the numbers

    I am one of those who believes that a good coach does not need more than a year to turn things around. Frost inherits a horrible culture from Mike Reily, who did immense damage in three years and should be banned from ever stepping foot in Nebraska, yet Frost was able to change the culture and make this team a fighter. Our record is 4-8 not because of Frost but because of Chin who could not find a way to coach these guys well. We lost several close games that we could have won if chin had done his job. We simply could not stop opposing teams from imposing their will on us. Now, I am not calling for his head and I do not think anyone should be fired after the first year, however, I am willing to bet good money that chinander is who he is and he is not going to change no matter how many years you give him. We will be discussing the same exact issues next year and our defense will be our Achilles heal. If after 12 games on the job, you can stop Sargent from Iowa when you knew very well that he is their only running back threat, then you are NOT a good coach. In fact, Iowa only had one good rushing game in their previous games until they played us and they almost had two guys hit 100 rushing yards with one of them hitting 147 yards. This was the story line in every game this season. What good is a coach who can’t prepare for the one player who can hurt you. Let us face it, Jonathan Taylor had his best game against us, so did Sargent and all the other running backs who played against us. Iowa kept Illinois scoreless yet Illinois running backs and QB ran all over us. Bottom line, even though chinander will be our coach next year, mark my words, he will not be any better. A zebra can’t change its stripes much like chinander can’t become a juggernaut defensive guru. Nevertheless, we will have to give him a second year before we learn our lesson because God forbid we upset the many experts on this board who honestly believe that the players are to blame and not the coach.

    What did we learn: Iowa edition?

    I would not be surprised at all if Adrian Martinez is not on the Heisman watch list next year. He is one of the most dynamic QBs of all of college football. He has grown so much this year and next year, he will be even more seasoned and more mature. The next few years are very promising for husker nation. I am soooooooo excited....Go Big Red....

    What did we learn: Iowa edition?

    Well, it was a great game to end our season. I wish we had won the game because that would have left a much better taste in our mouths but at least we tried and it took every last second for us to lose that game. So, what did I learn moving forward: (1) we have not had an answer to any of our opposing team running backs all season long. That is 200% on chinander. If he can’t find a way to stop opposing running backs then he needs to find himself another job. Opposing team running backs have killed us in every game and they were the difference between us winning the game. (2) Martinez needs to run. He is not very effective when he becomes a pocket passer for consecutive plays. He becomes a sitting target. When he runs, he keeps defenses on their toes. (3) we are going to miss Stanley Morgan and Ozigbo next year. (4) we would have won the game if spielman played. (5) our defense fails to come up with crucial stops when the game is on the line. In games where they did that, we won those games. Today, if we stopped that fourth down conversion at the end of the game, we win the game. (6) we need to recruit some good big defenders. It took four of our guys to stop Iowa running backs. (7) the future is very bright for the Huskers. Next year, we have an excellent chance to run the table. We should have no problem winning the west division. (8) Frost needs to make some decisions on the defense and special teams in the off season. We need more dynamic special teams play. (9) for this first time in over a decade, I feel so hopeful and confident about the future of BIG RED football. GOOOOOOOOOO BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG REEEEEEEEEEED! Go Big Red!
