  1. 100% accurate. This defeatist attitude shows more on the individual speaking than the situation at hand. Georgia is a great example and I would throw in Michigan last season. They went from zero to hero in a similar situation to ours. Like you mentioned it takes leadership and the right players to make things click. Every good CEO learns from their mistakes and moves on to improve their product. Look at the revamped recruiting methods we are utilizing this offseason. We are attacking the portal for direct needs and have put an emphasis on recruiting the 500 mile radius again. Mickey is in Omaha again today visiting schools where we have let players get away. No one should have anything negative to say, as this offseason has been extremely positive for progression both on the field and in football recruiting relationships.
  2. Speaking of…when will Nebraska follow suit? I am sure Ron Brown will be kept on as an analyst, but not too many other names come to mind like you see in the SEC. I think Sean Snyder would be a good add as an analyst if he doesn’t get a new gig .
  3. I think that is why Raiola was brought in to develop what we have. I think the talent is there and we added two nice pieces and would bet we add another one after spring ball. I am happy you mentioned better QB options as I feel Martinez deserves just as much of the blame as people are putting on the O-line.
  4. What's the latest on Nesta Jade Silvera? If he is coming to Lincoln, isn't today the day we will find out?
  5. 100% agree. That’s why Raiola is here. We have talented lineman who need to develop. I think the staff sees that. Sure, It would have been nice to get Shorts, but maybe they get someone after the spring portal entries.
  6. NM Lincoln Journal Star reported he is going to LSU instead.
  7. Evan Bland posted that Shorts is still coming. I thought I read he called off the visit. Any clarity? That would be gigantic if he is coming this weekend.
  8. Has anyone found the list of visitors this weekend?
  9. How is this an upgrade to Held?
  10. Yes they did. He de-committed from UCLA for them
  11. I think the thing we have going for us is that Oklahoma is very much in the mix for Dart.
  12. Awesome. Hopefully we get some traction there.
  13. Sad if that's the best they can do after all this time is land Bryan Applewhite. I hope this is not the case.
  14. Are we mentioned with the Miami DT? I didn't see that.
  15. If Burton still wants to coach they should be all over him for the position. Jay Graham is another that if he is ready to get back to full time coaching we should chase. Pietre and Nixon have great credentials as well and its understandable the delay in the hire if they are chasing one of them. If they announce Knox or Applewhite my question would be why? Why take so long to announce this when they have been available for a while now.
  16. Have to figure we will here a hire today or tomorrow morning at the very latest am I right? With recruiting opening back up again tomorrow and visitors coming in to town this weekend, I would imagine this needs to be taken care of today. Is my thinking correct?
  17. They are not grasping for straws. The whole off season has been very efficient in their execution. I think they are making the interviews and will have a decision before Thursday when recruiting opens up again and we have visitors.
  18. I think you are on to something. In my opinion, they will be RB Coach/Run Game Coordinator/Recruiting Coordinator
  19. I agree 100%. If I learned anything last night is that Defensive Line may be the most important position in football. The defensive lines controlled that game and it took elite level passing and receiving on a few of the big plays to separate the two teams. Happy for the walk on from Georgia. Very cool story.
  20. That would be a tremendous hire along with Michael Pitre from the Bears. I hope these are possible names because I am trying to see how Bryan Applewhite continues the Kool-Aid trend, no offense to him. I just haven't read enough to convince myself he will be an asset recruiting or coaching like other options.
  21. Running back coach question: Is there any chance that Tommie Robinson could be in play behind the scenes? His connection with Mickey and Busch from LSU and the fact he has follows from a few of our players. He just so happens to be a top recruiter in areas we need to recruit. Just throwing it out there as a question.
  22. Is anyone familiar with David Johnson the RB coach at Florida St? I noticed there are quite a few Husker follows on his twitter handle. Not sure if he is a candidate for a RB coach or not, but found that interesting.
  23. I agree, but I also feel like they have a general idea of who is coming and who is going. I think they will be able to handle the scholarships based on what they can get done in these positions of need. I have heard we have two O-Lineman targeted mainly the OSU lineman and have not heard the name of the other. Everyone wants defensive line so that's a tough one. Have there been any names floated around for that side of the ball?
