    That looks a lot like a commitment tweet, but it doesn't seem to be. Scared the hell out of me either way.

    Nebraska Pro Day 2019

    The NFL's biggest issue with incoming long snappers from college is that very few of them CAN block. Although they can not be directly lined up against, they very much need to know how to block. Plus, you have to be the absolute best long snapper any given year to find a job, as only 2-3 come open at any one time. Ober (according to Frost, at least) wasn't even the best long snapper on his team. https://www.sbnation.com/nfl/2018/4/19/17173142/long-snappers-nfl-college-football The challenge for NFL teams is finding snappers who know how to block. In the last few years, almost all college teams have transitioned to a spread punting scheme. They scatter their blockers and coverage men horizontally, which usually means there’s not a rusher for the long snapper to block. The snapper, then, gets a free release downfield: The spread punt is less common in the NFL, where blockers keep closer splits and funnel rushers more toward the middle. Most professional snappers have to put their heads up and block someone almost as soon as they’ve released the ball. Rushers can’t line up directly over the snapper’s head, but they still run right at them:
  4. Honest question, I know nothing about track and field. Why wouldn't an indoor be faster? All I can think of is wind aided times, help me out.

    2019 Super Six

    Ty should be a monster as well, because in all honesty this class should be a Super Ten. But, I wanted to be different and Nelson's attitude and demeanor make me think he's is going to be a stalwart.

    2019 Super Six

    Wandale Robinson- Becomes what we all expect him to be. Bryce Benhart- Road grader for the next four years Nick Henrich- Tackling machine Jackson Hannah- I think he will turn into a proto-type NFL MLB NPG- Dynamic and aggressive Garrett Nelson- Gives us the old school Nebraska attitude again Sleeper: Ethan Piper, I didn't know much about him at first and thought he might have been a reach. Still not sure where he ends up playing. But, pound for pound may be one of the most athletic players we got in 2019.
  8. Is there a walk-on spot??? That would be sweet. EDIT: Not a lot of rep. but what that person has posted has made an impact.

  10. If anybody is in Omaha or the surrounding areas. I encourage you to watch the semi-pro MLA (Midwest Football Alliance). 

     

    Real football, great players.

    A lot of great guys dedicate their lives to playing football, regardless of their situation.

     

    Its a great time.

     

    Go Omaha Stockmen!

    OLB Steven Parker [Kansas - Signed LOI]

    Parker would be a welcomed option as an OLB, due to my previous comments, I hope I am just ignorant to his athletic abilities. Seems like a quarterback nightmare regardless, we can probably work the rest out.

    *** 2020 Recruiting ***

    If the NFL has taught us anything, it's that half of good CFB OT's are really just tall guards.

    Which East St. Louis is the Eastest? Assuming Lawaun Powell is from Illinois as well, but I did have to think about it for a second.
