    This is a team with no returning starters with zero chemistry and familiarity with each other before the start of the year.

    Which is just about how it would have been with Miles anyway.  Maybe marginally better this season, but we all saw what the ceiling was after 7 years (1 NIT win :corndance).

     

    But no moral victories, this year is going to blow chunks record-wise.  Oh well, scorched earth rebuilds are our thing as a university now.

    They've been solid for a while though.....but never great.  Have they ever made a BCS bowl?

     

    Edit: Looked it up, only looked back 30 or 40 years, but not 1 BCS bowl....they did go undefeated in 94' with 1 tie, but didnt go to a bowl.  Not sure how that happens?

    In the first year of the BCS (1998), A&M won the Big 12 and lost to Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl.  But all in all I agree, they're a middle-class P5 program at best.


  3. Milt Tenopir called Frost the best QB he saw in terms of understanding and implementing T.O.'s offense on the field.  Frost knows what to do, and the priorities now are fixing the OL depth chart (no offense to the starting 5 but they need to be pushed in practice by guys who could actually get PT), getting the right mix of WRs (one or two reliable big-bodied threats, cross your fingers that Betts and Manning qualify), and having 3+ running backs to rely on.  None of those things were there in 2019, all look better on paper for 2020 (for what that's worth).  Frost is limited only by his roster.

    Yes he went three and out the next possession. He then handed the ball off all the way down the field and hit a dude wide open. 

    False, play-by-play is available here https://huskers.com/sports/football/stats/2019/iowa/boxscore/12380 Nebraska scored on back-to-back drives.  Starting the drives at the 9 and 2 yard line in the 4th quarter were more informative to Nebraska's lack of success.  Doubt McCaffrey would have been called to take any crazy risks, either.  The next drive that started at the 20 was immediately boned by a false start by Austin Allen.

    No but it prevented Nebraska from winning the game because he did nothing else the rest of the game and ran out bounds with roughly 40 seconds left giving the other team time that they would not have otherwise

    Well that was pretty much the point that was made: the crowd was "groaning" when Martinez came back in.  And Nebraska scored, so it's completely moot.  No guarantees McCaffrey does much better later on given the field position given in the 4th quarter, kind of hard to justify putting your freshman in against a top 5 defense nationally inside your own ten yard line.  If they didn't call a bogus blindside block penalty, it's quite possible McCaffrey was left in the game, but we'll never know.  Martinez did screw up on that play, but leaving McCaffrey in if you're not playing to win is not that egregious an error IMO.

    After Luke led us to a TD, anyone with a brain figures he comes back in a rides the momentum.  Nope, Mr. Ego Scotty Frosty, could never be wrong so deer in the headlights Martinez comes back in to again lead us to defeat.  The very audible collective groan of the stadium when #2 came back in said it all.  

    Luke entered in the middle of that drive and ran, what, two plays?  Threw a nice ball for sure.  Immediately after that, Mr Deer in the Headlights engineered a 13 play 60 yard touchdown drive including a clutch throw to Kade Warner on 4th and 6.  But by all means, carry on.

    The day we beat the s#!t out of all our cup cake teams ill know were heading in the right direction.

    Yeah, something like that.  I think it'll happen gradually and there won't necessarily be a watershed moment.  But we'll know it if/when we see it.


  8. I can't read the article, but. . .talk is cheap.  At the same time, press conference quotes are meaningless and shouldn't have much read into them.  Coach Frost said some nice things about his team, he also declared them a 4-8 team until they themselves prove otherwise.  Who gives a crap?  I missed where he declared the team "back and here to stay".  I'm not saying anything Earth-shattering here, I know :|
