    Didn't have to worry about it much since you were lucky to get 1 regular season game a year back then. For a long time the max. a team could be on TV for regular season games was 3 times in any 2 year period. Got to listen to Lyell Bremser on KFAB. In an odd way, I really miss those days. Lots of great memories. Oh, big screen in the stadium? Kind of miss those days too when the fans were focused on the game itself and not some grand overreaching entertainment experience that ends up being a nonstop commercialized barrage of advertisements. Games back then had a flow to them that the modern game lacks with more football and way less dead time. Games were generally in the 2 1/2 hour range, not the 3 1/2 hours we have now even with the clock stopping and staying stopped when the ball carrier went out of bounds.

    What did we learn: Ohio State

    I learned I'm horrible at predicting the outcome of games which is why I don't gamble. And for being 2-7 I'm not really upset and have very good feeling things are going in the right direction pronto. Even though it was a loss I was proud of the way the team played and fought to the end. Maybe not next year, but in the not too distant future, HCSF is going have them in the conf. champ. game on a fairly consistent basis I'm confident. The offense is already lethal and as they continue to add skill players that fit the system and beef up the OL I only see it soaring higher. Defense has taken huge strides since the first few games. Still a long way to go but it is so nice to see improvement as the year progresses. I still think we are down on talent in at several, if not most, positions and lack depth most everywhere, not just on D. Whatever it takes they have to get the special teams fixed in the off season. Even playing just average ST play would look great right now. This will continue to be a source that contributes to losses until fixed. I'm sure HCSF will formulate a plan to fix this huge weak spot.

    WR Wandale Robinson [Kentucky Commit]

    Well, better to find out now rather than on NSD. Too bad, I really think he could have been a star in Frost's offense. But at least we are used to this type of thing happening so it doesn't come as much of a surprise.

    Accountability List

    I heard this on a podcast in the last week or two but don't remember who reported it. Might have been Callahan. Three times was the number they mentioned. Worse than missing the nice locker room I would think having to dress with all the 5th stringers and walk-ons who will probably never see the field would be pretty humiliating if you were vying for playing time or a starter. Definite step in the right direction.

    Ohio State Spread

    I'd be pretty happy if we could keep it to 21 points. But I have a feeling that it could turn into a pretty bad embarrassing beat-down with the way out defense has performed up to this point this year.

    WR Darien Chase [Nebraska Commit]

    OWH article from Sam. Sounds like the kind of player that we are looking for and will be perfect fit for HCSF. Looks like a great get for the program. Huskers land commitment from four-star Washington receiver Darien Chase

  11. AM has lived up to the all the hype that came with him and exceeded it so far IMHO. And is great addition to the school and team. I look forward to another 3 1/2 years with him at the helm. The thing that has probably surprised me the most is his ability to throw deep. Man, does he deliver a beautiful ball when he has time. We've had so many QB's in the past years who would have a wide open receiver downfield and under throw, over throw or just plain miss them. AM more times than not just hit them in stride.
  12. Congratulations to Dedrick. It is a very high honor to achieve and should be a source of pride to the young man.

    What if Nebraska has TWO games canceled this year?

    Could very well mean an 0-10 season if that were to happen. I agree that the payday would seem to be a stroke of good fortune for them but who knows if they can stay afloat that long.

    Call your shot: How many wins left?

    I picked 1, B-C. Until the team shows it can actually win and not give away the games I can't pick them to win more than the FCS opponent. This team should be 3-3 or 4-2 but just can't get out of its own way. I think they turn it around at some point, just not sure if it is this year. Still have 100% faith in Frost over the long haul but it could 3-4 years to get things back on track I'm afraid.
