    This is probably a dumb question but how do companies or NIL collectives expect to profit from these NIL deals? Like if you give a QB a few million dollars how will they make a profit on top of all that money?

    I wonder that too.  I think some are "not for profit", so essentially their income goes to staff salaries and company enhancements, etc.  I think the ultimate return or "profit" is their team competing at the highest level.  I think it's sort of an entertainment expense that wealthy boosters are willing to pay to make this happen.  We all can agree that Saturdays are a heck of a lot more fun when the Huskers are good.   That's how I see it anyway.

    Ohio State got screwed on that replay. Not only was he correctly ruled short on the field, there is no way they had conclusive evidence to overturn it.

    I agree.  That reversal reeked of bias.  But, tOSU took the brunt of it so at least there's that.

    @The Dude is right. If we can't make a bowl next year, what was the point of hiring Rhule? firing Frost?


    I really hope you’re kidding.   

    just in case you’re not…..uh simply stated, Frost can’t coach.  That wasn’t going to change at NU.  He can craft some impressive offensive plays, but the day to day CEO part was just too much for his abilities.  Maybe some day he’ll figure out some things and work his way up to a good HC job again, but I’m not seeing it.  He’s better suited as an OC IMO.  

    We need a reset with Rhule and again, in my opinion, have no business expecting a bowl game in year 1.

    Yes.  It sucks losing Hausman.  But....now that he's there, I really don't care.

    Exactly.  If Rhule and staff can coach, recruit and develop like we hope they can, we’ll be just fine with the players that want to be here.  If some player wants to leave, don’t let the door hit you on the way out.

  5. I’m bored with who’s going where, so I’m going with a philosophical post.  

    Random thought about transfers out of NU.  If I’m being completely honest, I couldn’t care less if they have success or not at their next destination. Not rooting against them or anything.  I just don’t care either way.  I’m here for Nebraska and our team.   I suspect most people here probably feel that way too, but feel the need to “wish them luck “.   Take AM for example, as good of a person he is, it sucks for him that he got hurt again, but after hearing about it the first time, I really haven’t given it a second thought ( until now I guess).   Anyone else feel this way?

    I hear ya on the passion part, been tough sledding getting pumped for a perennial sub .500 team.  We're the only p5 team to not go to a bowl in 5 years, right?


    I think Rhule will bring the excitement and passion back.  Its like Memorial stadium is my wife of 30 years, and said wife wants to introduce another woman into the equation to spice things up.  A woman who is new in town from carolina, says all the right things and demands excellence in the trenches.  Not sure what trenches im referring to at this point but lets just say im at half mast and its not even spring ball yet

    This is one of the best analogies I’ve ever seen. :lol:

    One way to keep the sellout streak going. I think wt Rhule as HC, I think it was going to continue anyway.  Rhule gives hope of better things to come. 

    I’ve been 50/50 on renewing.  This probably makes it 60/40 renewing, I’d hate to flush away the priority points built up over the years, but we’ll see.  The passion just isn’t there anymore.  Maybe Rhule can change that.

    It is very disappointing to watch how poorly Benhart has progressed. I coached against this kid throughout high school in both football and wrestling. I was genuinely excited to get his commitment and see how he would do. He has not gotten any better and dare I say, he is worse now than when he was a true freshman?

    My impression is that he finished the season better than how he played in the first couple games.  I recall seeing somewhere that PFF graded him as our top OL for what it’s worth.

    Eh, those Jimmys and Joes looked a lot better under Busch than they did Chins. 

    Somewhat, yes.  But my point is that the J&J are more important and we shouldn’t fret about what some Gamecock fans had to say about Our new OC.  We need some players.  I just used Chins as an example.  No D line studs, no JoJo, no CTB.  Same Chins.  Much, much different than 2021, when we thought he might be pretty decent.

    Deion can coach and recruit. Yes he never done it at this stage but you don't just get to where he is at with just recruiting. I just don't understand why people don't think he can have long term success especially if he has success early with winning? 

    Based on Jackson State?  Not saying he can’t, but I’d pump the brakes.  Let’s see him do it in P5 week after week.

  11. “Coach Prime wants to stay down south “

    ”Fickle won’t leave the state of Ohio “

    ”Trev is getting a lot of ‘No’ responses “

    ”There are only a couple jobs Rhule would consider and none are currently open “

    ”Wisconsin is locking up Leonhard so nobody else gets him”


    I swear I heard those things.  At one point I actually talked myself into believing the one about Trev.   Apparently BS makes coaching searches fun for fans.
