  1. As bad as HCSF is, at least is isn't an asshat and major embarrassment to the University and State of Nebraska. If Pelini would have been able to conduct himself both on and off the field in a slightly more civil manner he might still be here.
  2. If the team comes out and plays like it did in the 1st half against Minn., then 0. If they can get their act together then I'd say 2 is possible.
  3. He's counting "moral victories" along with real, on the scoreboard victories. Now if we can just get the B1G to see it our way we will be at the top the division.
  4. As much as people like to complain about Martinez we better hope he can make it through this season and returns next year. I your starting QB is injured to the point you can't run your offense like we saw Saturday and you feel your 2nd string QB is so inferior to the injured starter that you don't dare bring him in, even for a series or two, then the future looks pretty bleak. Better hope you can find somebody in the portal although it's not likely your going to get a very highly ranked player to come to NU with the record we have amassed over the last 4 years.
  5. The problems with this team are systemic. Replacing an assistant or two or three is not going to get to the root of the issues.
  6. I'm going to blame John Bishop for posting these lies and falsehoods on Twitter in the first place. Damn media's fault. And equal blame needs to go to that evil Hedley Lamarr for posting fake news to this board. He should get a permanent ban for such vile accusations.
  7. Well, it sucks worse as of a couple of hours ago with de-commit of defensive lineman Hayden Schwartz. Down to #73 (24/7) or #83 (Rivals) national ranking now.
  8. I was just going to post that tweet. It glaringly shows exactly how pathetic NU football has become with FACTS, not opinions or emotional bluster. And what is even more pathetic is how much of fan base accepts this and defends it.
  9. I think he gets a year, maybe two, regardless of what happens on the field this year. In the end does it really matter if you finish 3-9 or 5-7? Neither gets you to a bowl. And if they can't come up with the buyout cash he may be here 5 more years. Recruiting might suffer a bit with only 3 wins but we are already ranked last in the B1G so it's not like we have far to fall.
  10. We've gotten to the point where playing hard, improving but not winning any more games and maybe getting to a bowl if we are lucky is good enuff fer DONU.
  11. Not in the middle of the season but at the end of the season, yes. Worst 4 year record at NU since JFK was in office. Currently ranked last in the B1G in the upcoming recruiting class (#11 in star rating). And with what we are seeing on the field it ain't going to be getting better. I was hoping a strong season could in some small way resurrect this class but that obviously isn't happening.
  12. NU has been playing pretty good ball this year just not a lot of wins. Should be able to get at least to 4-5 wins total which I think gets Frost another year or two. I thought going into the year the only way Frost gets canned is if things fall apart catastrophically and they only get 3 wins or less which I don't see happening.
  13. Ended up about like I predicted but with a 3 point loss instead of 4 but higher scoring than I imagined. Played hard and didn't quit. Took a top 10 team down to the wire. It would have been nice to win but at least we didn't get blown out and embarrassed. Still have a chance to make a bowl which counts for something. Not really sad or angry about this game though for some reason.
  14. I'm glad this is going to be on a major network. Anybody know who the announcers are going to be? While I love having all the games televised it sometimes (like last week) feels like the B1G Network broadcasts are second tier.
  15. I can't agree with this. If your going to compare Yant to the other backs but not include his longest run then you need to not include the longest run by the other backs too. So, taking away each back's longest run yields: Yant - 12/63yd = 5.25yd/carry Johnson - 11/51yd = 4.64yd/carry Martinez - 7/25yd = 3.57yd/carry Stepp - 4/20yd = 5.00yd/carry Morrison - 4/18yd = 4.5yd/carry
  16. Michigan - 20 Nebraska - 16 Rush - 110 Pass - 161
  17. I'm really looking forward to this game. Last week was impressive but NW was pretty bad so I have a hard time thinking everything has been corrected and is peachy from what we saw the first 5 games. Got to believe some of the old habits will return when they face a team with a pulse and lots of talent. I'm thinking it with be within 7 points either way but wouldn't be shocked if Mich wins by 14 or more. But I thought last week would be close so what do I know.
  18. https://www.huskermax.com/2021-nebraska-michigan-football-stats-matchup/ Interesting comparison between the two teams. Pretty close in a lot of categories with Michigan holding an edge overall it seems. Some things that stand out. - Special team huge edge to Mich. Hope NU has that worked out like last night or else it could be bad. - Sacks & sacks allowed. Again hopefully our OL plays the rest of the year like last night. - Turnovers. Have to take care of the ball in a close match up like this.
  19. I agree. Just catching the ball with no drama was huge. Especially when the offense is playing like they did. And Martin made a great play on that one punt that was short where he was able to field it cleanly, not letting it hit and roll for who knows how many extra yards.
  20. I have to say that was the most enjoyable Husker game I've seen in a long, long time. While I realize it was only NW in an off year at least we took care of business and played like I expect a Husker team to play. After seeing them struggle in games like this constantly, or worse, get beat by teams like Illinois, looking at what they did last night gave me a feeling of excitement I remember having with TO's teams from the 70's thru the 90's. And the return of the big plays was a treat to behold. Now if we can just carry it through to Mich.
  21. What a coming out party for Yant. If he can keep his weight down and continue to learn the playbook I can see an illustrious future for him at NU. Every time I've seen him run the ball he just seems to have that little bit extra you don't always see in other backs and and if I'm a DB I wouldn't want to have to try to tackle him when he's coming at me with a head of steam. Looked pretty good blocking in pass protection too.
  22. NW - 13 NU - 27 Rush - 160 Pass - 276
  23. 2. ST will improve just because they can't get much worse but they will be a damn far sight short of being fixed. You don't go from one of the worst ST in college FB to fixed in 1 week. 3. OL will improve due to weaker opponent this week. 4. RB by committee seems to be the norm with this staff.
