    CB Avante Dickerson

    I’ve seen him play several times. Great speed, just needs to improve his physicality. That will come as he gets stronger and more experienced. Would like to see him at NU for sure.

    2019 Spring Game - April 13 @ 1:00 CDT on BTN

    Good to know. I’m working today so have the DVR set to record. Maybe at some point they will show the entire game when they need program fillers. Thanks.

    2019 Spring Game - April 13 @ 1:00 CDT on BTN

    Ohio State’s spring game is on BTN at 11:00 and NU’s at 1:00. How’s that going to work? Spring games are longer than two hours aren’t they?? I’m sure they will tune into the Huskers about half way through the second quarter. We’ll miss all of AMart just so we can see Tosu’s 6th string team play. Hopefully I’m wrong, but I don’t trust BTN to not screw us over.

    DT Nash Hutmacher

    This looks like a previous visits photo . Unless he shaved and cut his hair. See the picture with Tuioti.

    Hoiberg Introductory Presser

    That original press release listed Coach Bush’s height and weight which is quite bizzare. Must have been important information back then.

    QB Logan Smothers [Nebraska Commit]

    Nice finish. It sounds like a couple of cows were doing the commentary.

    Discontent in the AD?

    I want baseball to be better too, but moving to the B1G did NU's baseball program no favors. Worse weather. Worse competition. Baseball will not likely ever generate significant positive revenue, so I don't see Moos losing much sleep over it. Also, with Erstad being a stud NU baseball player and a good punter in the 90's glory years--I think he's pretty safe. Who knows what Moos thinks though.

    Discontent in the AD?

    Unless the program tanks big time, I don’t see Erstad going anywhere in the foreseeable future. I get the feeling Moos likes him.

    Fred Hoiberg To Be Named Next Nebraska Coach

    “Fred Hoiberg's $3.57 yearly salary will be third-highest in the Big Ten, and 11th in the country.” We got him on the cheap too. Good thing he’s salaried, otherwise this would be a minimum wage violation!

    Hank Bounds Stepping Down

    My impression has been the exact opposite. I think this is a big loss for the University System.

    Discontent in the AD?

    I notice lots of misinformation and things frequently get out of control on this board. Maybe we need the rumor section back??

    You make some good points about how things seem to set up for us nicely on paper. I just need to see it to believe it. On scarlet and cream colored paper, we've won 3 or 4 B1G West titles so far since joining the league. Unfortunately we know what really has happened. Frost and co. will get this thing turned around, I'm just skeptical that it's going to happen in year 2. I hope I'm wrong and we clobber the entire West division, but this is the Big Ten. It doesn't work that way. Wisconsin has been rolling too long to drop off too far. Iowa and NW will probably always play us tough no matter where the games are played. That's just what they do to Big Ten teams. Purdue losing their QB will be significant, but they have a very good coaching staff. I guess I don't get all the KoolAid drinking right now, but It's spring ball time, so maybe thats it.

    You do realize we lost to all three of these teams last season and also Purdue. How exactly is that vastly overstating the competition in the west? Are all four of these teams going to suck this year? Were not the only team that may improve in 2019. I know everyone's excited about Frost and the new staff and culture, etc. and I am too, but we still have to beat the teams we have struggled against in the past couple years. There's also a mental aspect doing to that. Are we there yet? I don't know. The West is going to be wide open this year. If our D and ST don't step up, winning the West seems very unlikely IMO. Purdue, Wisconsin, Iowa and NW all had superior defenses last year.

    No stress here either. I just want improvements on both sides of the ball. I think we’ll see that, but I finally convinced myself to ignore preseason hype about unproven players and the potential of the team to be really good. I used to do that and got burned every year. We’re on the way back to being contenders, but it’s going to take time and I’m good with that.

    Unfortunately crap happens. Injuries, transfers, arrests or other legal issues. I think your banking on best possible case scenario regarding the offense. The defense is still a huge concern and will need to take a huge step forward for us to be in the conversation for being a West Division contender. Too many are assuming we’ll make a 2nd year UCF type leap. That isn’t happening in the Big Ten.
