  1. There's a weird thing that happened with Frost that has continued with Heupel. Both of them would run tiny rbs up the middle. It was mostly ineffective and would frequently cost us series, but Frost would continue to run our smallest back despite the criticism and Heupel has continued the tradition. I have to assume that they are both idiots or that there is something about this strategy that sets up bigger plays later. Have y'all seen the same thing in your run game?
  2. I can't speak to players, but I see y'all having a lot of the same problems with a lot of the same coaches that we did. Difficult for me to speculate more than that.
  3. Fan support is definitely squarely in the advantage column for the program.
  4. Now is the perfect time for staff changes, though. It shows that Frost is paying attention and tweaking things. Another bad year and it looks like you're trying to save your butt by throwing staff under the bus.
  5. Yeah, nothing you can do about that at the time. There were a few Husker fans that said, "he's gotta be good", but most were saying something like, 'let's hope it works out'. But now is a good time to start cleaning house (at the end of the season). I don't remember special teams being great, but we've had struggles in the past with special teams. I'm surprised more haven't turned against Walters. He was an empty chair at UCF.
  6. I think this is my first time posting here in a year. I saw that the Huskers had another rough week, so I thought it was a good time to pop in and see how y'all are doing. I'm still rooting for y'all and Frost. I know that I've preached patience with his system/culture in the past, but the results have definitely been delayed more than I was expecting. I still think he's the best man for the job. I wish I had some profound thoughts to bring as someone probably more familiar with the differences between Nebraska and Florida/UCF than most, but it seems like y'all have a pretty
  7. You don't seem to lack confidence. Well, it wasn't just one word. There was an edited quote attached. And you'll notice that my post was posed as a question, not a definitive statement. I wasn't saying that we shouldn't use statistics. I was merely stating that I believed statistical arguments were imperfect and those problems are exacerbated in team sports such as college football that have a lot of variables affecting the outcome. I'm a big fan of statistics, but I could utilize statistics to show you how a coach is the worst in t
  8. You are positing that all statistical arguments for or against coaches are perfect because...reasons?
  9. Y'all, the problem with making statistical arguments for coaches is that football is a team sport with many different factors. TOP for the offense, quality of the players, strength of opponents can all make a good DC look bad and vice versa. This is why when evaluating coaches, I often look to the fans of teams the coach has worked for. They know the opponents relative strength, the tempo of the offense, how good the recruits were and how developed they have become as players. When Charlie Strong left UF, a Gator friend of mine said, "He's been looking for HC jobs for years and no
  10. I didn't mean to imply that having a different DC would have turned everything around, I think that installing Frost's system and culture is going to take time. And probably more time than it took at UCF. I was just curious about the current thoughts. When a team isn't winning, there is a lot of finger pointing. Some of that is correct, some of that isn't. Most UCF fans think Frost will succeed at Nebraska, but I don't think a lot believe Chinander will last. I wasn't sure if any Husker fingers were pointed at him. Again, I don't think he's at fault, but I do think he's
  11. So I'm going to try to tread carefully here, but during my last time on the board I warned y'all about Chinander. I was roundly rebuffed as being a bitter UCF fan and told that Chins must be an incredible DC because the team went undefeated. Have Husker fans changed in their optimism about Chinander at all?
  12. Thanks! Good to be back. I think it's been close to a year since my last post. Some of the UCF fans were gloating about the meltdown happening on the Nebraska boards, so I figured I would head over here and see how y'all were doing and contribute what I could. When I was on the board before, a lot of Husker fans thought that Frost took over a horrible winless UCF and turned them into an undefeated one quickly, but that wasn't really the case. We had a talented team, we just had a MASSIVE amount of coaching drama, with the players and the coaches giving up on each other
  13. I think Riley would have won at least one game. But y'all are in a waaaay better position with Frost. It's a completely different system that needs different personnel and experienced leaders to run it. Riley could have been more successful so far continuing his system with his players and his leaders. I know it looked to a lot of people like Frost walked in to UCF and turned the team around in no time, but that first season was a big disappointment to UCF fans. We were questioning whether we hired the right guy.
  14. I apologize if it felt like I was twisting biblical passages to support my points, that was not my intention. I like the Bible, so sometimes I utilize biblical language to express my thoughts, without the intention to use the authority of the actual text. The original prayer was actually utilizing language from three different passages. I also figured that the use of the prayer was justifiable, as few among us would claim to free from lies or evil thoughts, though the implication that the lies and evil thoughts were about UCF's playoff hopes was intended to be humorous. I'll apolog
  15. I'm having trouble inserting anything into the post, but I'll quote a friend of mine in response.
  16. I thought referencing the Bible was a good thing. And technically the scales fell off his eyes before the baptism. What would winning gracefully look like? The evidence suggests that some people believe we should just stay in the realm of obscurity.
  17. I think the thing that P5 fans miss is that we CAN'T schedule better teams. Top tier schools schedule creampuff teams for OOC in arrangements that are unacceptable for any decent team. The only P5 teams that will schedule 1and1s with us are the GT's and Maryland's of the world. Our only hope then is that the teams that WILL schedule us have a really solid year, otherwise, it's your strength of schedule is too low. One Gator fan told me that if we wanted to be in the playoff we should just get into a better conference. Thanks for the advice. So the teams that refuse to
  18. I'm completely baffled that there are still doubters. All season it's been, "If you played a SEC team, you would see what real football is," "Alabama and Georgia didn't go undefeated, but they had to play teams like Auburn, not SMU". Then we beat Auburn and it's "your strength of schedule was too low". We took advantage of the only opportunities we had to play P5 teams and won! What more could you want? You're basically saying that there is no possible way for a Group of 5 team to be better than a P5 team and you're pretty happy with that. I understand why it's in your
  19. What?!? No! Can there still truly be doubters?? Lord, I pray that you would remove the scales from this man's eyes and that the truth would set him free. We pray for deliverance from evil thoughts. Amen.
  20. Just a little bit longer. Some of y'all have been extremely respectful and have genuinely rooted for the Knights this year, but there have been quite a few that have been openly dismissive and acting like UCF is some pissant that should be ignored by "the big boys". I'm just curious if any of those Husker fans are willing to admit that UCF is better than they thought or if "Auburn just wasn't excited enough about the game" and "next year, UCF will just go back to being a crappy P5 school".
  21. Come one! Come all! If you were dismissive of UCF as "just a G5" team or said something like, "they don't deserve to be in the playoff", stop by and chat.
  22. Just when I thought I was over losing him... He's gotten a lot more confident and blunt as he's gained experience as a coach. I like it. I hope Heupel does the same.
