  1. It doesn't matter what offense we run if we have a crappy line, we'll have a crappy offense. Osborne understood that and placed a huge emphasis on developing his linemen.
  2. You obviously don't recall Osborne's pro style offense of the 70's and the quarterbacks we sent to the NFL.
  3. This is a pretty messed up statement from a mod. Just saying.
  4. I know what the title of the thread says but the OP and the first page doesn't sound like it. So of course no one can answer the question.
  5. I don't disagree with that at all. Funny how we had three quarterbacks in a row that didn't really pan out, Joseph, McCant and Grant. That said, did we hire Joseph? lol
  6. I don't have time or the inclination to read 16 pages, did Mickey Joseph get hired by NU? Or is that still up in the air?
  7. I don't recall Joseph breaking his leg in that game, he did get 125 stitches from a nasty cut that happened when he got shoved into the bench but I do seem to recall him standing on the sidelines afterwards. https://omaha.com/sports/college/huskers/teams/football/former-husker-mickey-joseph-reportedly-turned-down-offer-to-join-nebraska-coaching-staff/article_9317216b-559d-59d2-b940-4f93d2f7b8aa.html Other sources say he broke it but that's not what I recall from watching the game.
  8. I fish and I used to be able to cast to a target and hit it almost every time with a bait casting rod. Now? Not so much.
  9. I had a labrum tear in my right shoulder that was surgically repaired but years later it still effects what I can/can't do with my right arm. I lost almost 10% range of motion as a result of the injury and surgery. I also had a small tear in the rotator cuff that was repaired at the same time. That healed far faster than the labrum issue with no residual effects today. If Martinez did indeed have a labrum tear I wouldn't expect him to be able to perform the same ever again.
  10. Realistically, Frost is a long shot to succeed here at NU now. How many coaches succeed after starting off with 4 losing seasons? I'm to tired and lazy to look that up right now but I'd be surprised if it was a regular occurrence.
  11. While I don't share your optimism I do love it so I gave you an "Oh Yeah" Kool-Aid guy.
  12. That is on the offensive line and the coaches. Good thing we canned our O-Line coach eh?
  13. It absolutely is absurd. It's my opinion that folks who want us to run all the time simply want Osborne's 90's offense back. They seem to think that is the only way we've been successful while forgetting that same coach ran a pro style offense in 70 and 71. In the 70's we were sending quarterbacks to the NFL. Tagge, Ferragamo and Humm (probably forgetting a couple) at the least.
  14. How many teams in the B1G 10 run more than 70% of the time and what significant achievements have they made with their offense? Looking at Army's record it looks like they lost both of those games. That isn't doing well in my book and in fact I'd call that losing which is exactly what we don't want for our team.
  15. So just one Power 5 team in 11 years out of how many Power 5 teams? Those aren't good odds.
  16. I want Nebraska to do well but that doesn't mean I can ignore 4 losing seasons in a row with a combined record of 15-27.
  17. What type of offense we run doesn't determine whether or not we are successful. It's the coaches and players that determine whether or not the team succeeds. Ffs, no one recalls that Callahan had two winning seasons with the West Coast Offense. Or that Osborne ran a pro style offense in the 70's. Being one dimensional only helps your opponent.
  18. I'd appreciate you using my name instead of calling me names.
  19. For the same reason he would have wanted one on any given year while in college.
  20. So he can't use one next year? Yes or No.
  21. I would absolutely say they are the same.
  22. You'll have to ask Moos, I can't speak for him.
  23. I am hardly the only one and I mentioned this when it was being discussed on who might be hired.
  24. Imo, he shouldn't have listened to the fan base at all, not a single one of us. It's HIS job to decide who to hire, it's one of the things he gets paid for. I'll say that it's OUR job as fans to speculate, even wildly, about who the AD will pick and why. That's part of the fun of being fans.
