  1. I've not had a lot of time (and to be honest interest) in Spring football this year. Browsing this thread, it seems we've had a bad spring, no players, coaching changes and misses on the portal. Compared to prior years where "this unit or that unit has made great strides' and "probably the best Spring training we've seen in years" and "some young guys are ready to make meaningful contributions".....perhaps with all the negativity, this will be our year????? Heh heh. See you on Saturday. GO BIG RED!!!!!!!
  2. Not to derail this thread, but I wasn't aware if Dylan Raiola. Couple years away but that kid can sling the ball. Almost makes me dare to dream again. Almost. Lots of ifs between now and a couple years from now.
  3. Youre no fun! But I suspect you weren't here for the million post, can't update fast enough speculation frolic that was the sock puppet head coach thread before Riley was hired. Ah...good times.
  4. I am perplexed. I get so frustrated with Martinez I could bash my TV. Yet today he became the all time leader in total production or some similar stat, passing Tommy Armstrong. And that with a shorter season last year. Inconsistency is a beach I guess.
  5. I was sky high on Benhart. Not anymore. He can move along if he wants
  6. You are absolutely right. I have to wonder if the changes on the O-line were brilliant, or if they just benefited from a very poor NW defense. Win or lose, we'll know a lot more after next week or two.
  7. Nope, for all the obvious continuity reasons, we can't /shouldn't fire Frost right now. And yes, most anywhere else he' be gone, but this isn't anywhere else. This is where we've gone through coaches like (insert favorite equivalent here). I would hope that Trev does demand a change to Special Teams and I'd be for sending Austin packing right now. Change is needed, soon. But not Frost. Not yet.
  8. There goes Martinez sucking again with a huge touchdown. Worst player ever. /S

  10. I remember a whole decade where I couldn't even pick up the Sunday paper from the porch if we lost on Saturday. It ruined my week until Wednesday or so when the next game took focus. Glad I am over that, but I'd still like to have reason for a little bit of that attitude.
  11. Wish I could be there, supposed to be an awesome flyover.
  12. Scott Frost has a bad year (I am still totally behind him by the way) and Trev releases him to go coach UCF again in the Big 12. It could happen.
  13. One of the most fun games I attended was a major blowout against either New Mexico, or New Mexico State way back in the day. Ended up one of those 77 - 10 type of games. There were maybe 10 of their fans up in the corner and they were gone by halftime. So a dozen or so of us went down to the sideline where their cheerleaders were stationed, and did all their cheers along with them. They were having a riot and I think they really appreciated our fun efforts. Yeah....blowouts were fun.
  14. I came very close to naming our new dog Pawpoochus a few years back. So glad I didn't.
  15. Can I enter the portal? I'd accept anywhere that Lowe's and Home Depot do not stock snow scoops.
  16. My grandfather hated Notre Dame because Ara Parsnips kicked and extra point to get a tie and National Championship. That game was before I was old enough to really understand college football. But I understood my grandpa and his extreme distaste for that game choice. So, for no other reason than that, I feel TO made the right choice, at the right time.
  17. I learned, or perhaps re-learned, that 2AM one flaw away from being a pretty freaking amazing player. If he could, through some dark magic, make a way to eliminate the turn-overs, he'd be top 10 in the country I think. I also think he is hurting in a few ways that have an impact on his ability. Was he 24-28 tonight or something crazy like that...plus 150+ in rushing??? Wow. We maybe need to dock Verduzco's pay until he get the turn over thing fixed...he is the guru after all.
  18. I was a huge Verducci fan, but he doesn't seem to be getting it done.
  19. @krc1995 "That really good AM run for a TD in the first was interesting. You could almost read his thoughts abs I wonder if he’s thinking and trying to hard. He went to go left, appeared to have remembered something a coach probably told him, ran back and got into the pocket and appeared to be ready to pass, then re-thought that thought and scrambled. How many times do you see someone consciously run back into the center? " Great Observation
  20. Uh oh...cue the "talent vs coaching" discussion in 3.....2......1... :-)
  21. I got here by getting on the world wide web (information superhiway) and searching out "Huskerboard", then clicked on the URL it listed for me. That's how I get most everywhere on the www!!!
