  1. If you go for 2 early, do it out of the kick formation.
  2. Can coaches enter the transfer portal too? That would be cool. What if you could go to work and tell your boss you were entering the transfer portal. Or maybe go home and tell your wife, hey honey, I am going to enter the transfer portal!
  3. I think Frost needs to be callin some of those Florida boys unhappy about playing time and offer some starting jobs. We need some dudes.
  4. Can I cancel the rest of my year too?
  5. Offensively, I see young receivers getting better, one young QB who is getting better, but who we should have at slot or wing back. I see a Jr. QB going sideways in the throwing game but running better than last year. I see an O line struggling. I see a tight end getting better. I see game planning with an overall lack of respect for or understanding of a rushing attack. I see very little effective play action pass. I see too much zone dive, not enough QB under center (hey the Browns do it.) Defensively I see improvement on the D Line, in the OLBs , Bootle and CTB. I see an occas
  6. Allow me to quote Aaron Neville for a moment: I don't know much, but I know it helps to have a good offensive line, and that may be all I need to know.
  7. I am guessing if we get blown out by Iowa this board will end up being about 75% bots.
  8. You are just at that point where you throw the young guys out there and make them grow up quick. Practice their a$$ off. Full contact 1st team Vs. 1st team. Somebody's gotta want to make a play. Somebody's gotta want to restart the tradition.
  9. I once watched a show called "Sense and Sensibility"...well the Big 10 version is Lies and Liability
  10. These developments have provided clarity for me on several issues. First the Big 10 is not a good fit for Nebraska culturally, economically, academically. And we should be looking long term to leave and rejoin some iteration of the Big 12. Most of the Big 10 states and schools are Blue states politically with different economies from ours, no regard for the economy of Lincoln, or our lack of an NFL team to help support businesses. But before our football team leaves, we need to kick their teeth in for a year or two. And then invite them to Lincoln to see what 5 NC trophies look like
  11. If it means not having to hear Gus Johnson ever again I would give up a year of college football. I wish I could buy an island just for him, beth mowens and ed cunningham.
  12. In Tennessee they should get paid for each new letter of the alphabet they learn. You have to start somewhere. We were in that state for less than 30 minutes before being called crackheads. Welcome to Tennessee!
  13. Talk about finally throwing a bone. I have never understood how it could be right that the NCAA organization and universities can make millions off the backs of guys who get room and board and a college degree many of them will never use. I am not talking about the 80% who never make the NFL. I am talking about the 20% who make the University 80% of its football proceeds. Those guys should be getting what they are worth.
  14. I don't think you can pick one or the other at this point. We are in a position where we need to break out and beat both of them to get some recruiting momentum. True breakout season. You win and the cred starts to come back.
  15. So Eric Crouch can beat a team of some of the best Huskers ever but he couldnt handle 2001 Colorado? Fantasy fail.
  16. Everybody wants to have some type of a season but we need to think about the many 65+ yr. okd workers who are around the NU sports programs. I can wait a whole year if necessary to make sure this thing is under control.
  17. Kind of funny though we have to reach back 40 years to fill a team, Bama and Clemson could do it with roster guys sprinkled with some big names in the last three years. I would probably fill four or five Husker teams before I considered Crouch. I know he is a Darling, but I don't like the fact that they finished going 0-2. His best play against OU was a catch. Since it all is a fantasy, QB's I would take over Crouch for sure: Frazier Gill Frost Tagge Berringer Quarterbacks I would seriously consider before Crouch: Gerry Gdowski Vince Ferragam
  18. Need to just beat them first, then we can talk smack
  19. You would think right now that people would do what is right but money is king. Right now in Grand Island there is a large infection rate because of the meat packing plant. 3500 mostly migrant workers forced to work in close proximity. The disease is spreading quickly there, but you wouldn't know because there has been very little testing. Hundreds have called out sick with no pay. However the Grand Island ICU is currently FULL. And they are planning on shipping patients out to Kearney Lincoln, and Omaha. But the governor will not allow the Health department to close the meat plant te
  20. With a common cold I think you've got 6-8 weeks built in immunity once its over, after that you can get nailed again. Usually the more acute the infection the longer the immunity lasts. I had a nuisance recurring infection that lasted for years which would produce itchy little bumps on my hands and elbows. Then my infant son caught hand foot mouth disease. I will be damned if I didn't catch it! I had bumps all over my hands. Doctor said no, if you do have it you'll be the first adult I have seen with it. But I did have it. Got fairly sick. The acute infection actually forced my b
  21. I just read today that NU sits financially among the best of the Power 5 schools. Another article stated that one Texas A&M official thought it would be possible to start in Oct and still play a full schedule. https://sports.yahoo.com/texas-am-chancelllor-john-sharp-full-college-football-season-october-start-coronavirus-covid19-pandemic-014106178.html
  22. I read this week that the idea of starting in Oct. is being floated. I think for covid safety they should mandate elimination of full media timeouts, and cut review time to a maximum of 30 seconds in order to reduce public exposure and get everyone home quicker
  23. Mike Riley Sam Keller Maurice Washington Keyshawn Johnson Jr. Oh the golden age of Husker football
  24. If you are close to CO you are on the edge of the ant hill. The swarm comes for what it needs. LOTS OF PEOPLE THERE. The new normal will be what the public wants. Have to stand up for your freedoms even if it is uncomfortable. In Communist China right now, if you dont have a green bar code on your phone you don't get in to the store. Is that what we want here? 100% government control for "safety"?
