    Duval's S&C - Year 2

    He wasn't our highest '19 recruit rating, but this kid is going to be an animal. His instincts, work ethic...he is utterly SOLD OUT. Love it.

    ESPN: First 2019 Way-Too-Early Top 25

    Also, playing reflexively = playing fast. As the year moved on, the positioning and calls became more innate. That said, UM is a different beast than an Illinois.

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

    I watched about a quarter and a half. Red was 1st team offense and defense. White had 21 scholarship players (younger kids mostly). Just some random thoughts: - White looked like they came out hungrier and more aggressive. Red O had some nice plays but didn't look very sharp. A couple misreads by Adrian on zone reads. - We going to have to embrace it - Good D in this scheme is defined as fly to the ball, give up some yards, and create turnovers. White was gashing Red on a few runs early. I didn't expect to see it. - One of the Daniels brothers on red was getting moved off the line a bit...by white Oline - Luke McCaffrey is going to be good. Great feel for the game and ad hocs well - RB's looked spotty. Not tons of talent on display Saturday but serviceable - We really will count on a few playmakers that didn't play yesterday. We just don't have the talent depth yet. - I really liked the pressers after the game, especially from the kids. They were loose and didn't act uptight with the game not being their best performance. Really good maturity and perspective. It looked better than year 1. The D was better, and the Line play was better. Kids look a little leaner and faster. My take away was we have a favorable schedule, but to win the West consistently (not counting on a good schedule), and really challenge for BIG10, we still may be a class or 2 away. I'm encouraged...

    Spring Practice Notes

    We were often down and needing to score. No surprise he's throwing into a pass-ready defense. I'd love for this year to be Quarter 4 and OT: 0 INT on 0 attempts. You usually sit your starter in the 4th when up by 35

    Inside Backer Depth

    I love the friendships being built on this team. You fight for your brothers and your school. It's a formidable recipe we've missed for a while.

    Husker Offense Looking for "Plus Twos"

    Such a mark of those mid 90's teams. The O-line was great, but even the receivers blocked amazingly.

    Evolution of Herbie

    Thought this was a Kirk Herbstreit thread and how he's gone from meh, to utter contempt, and now bullish on the Huskers

    2019 Season Prediction Thread

    I don’t think it takes that long. Winning doesn’t make the winner. Winners create wins. And Scott and Co brought in a bunch this year as well as changed the culture of what we already had.

    Huskers in 2019....

    The more I see Nelson, the more I like him. His energy and enthusiasm are contagious and a jolt for the team.

    2019 Super Six

    I like this list but had the safe pick of Ty vs Nelson thou I like the latter's attitude. I think Hannah is going to be a monster as well...

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    Agreed. It takes a special talent to overcome the mental which is often tougher than the physical recovery. It it worked well for AMart so far...

    *** 2019 Recruiting ***

    Another one of Frost’s strategies. He’s recruiting good kids, winners, length to put muscle on, and a couple could’ve been 4+ stars, who took an injury hit, hoping they come back to full productivity.

    Most Under-Rated Husker of All-Time

    DeJon Gomes. So disruptive

    I'm dense tonight. Are we thinking Kansas?
