  1. I want everyone to know that the teams are running Mike Riley's playbook and it is pissing me OFF
  2. Offseason and fall camp coaching. Fix turnovers and return game issues, and that's the difference between 4 losses and 2, in my opinion. Everything else will get these kids to the promised land.
  3. Does "wheels spinning" mean he's "stuck in mud" or that he's starting to understand?
  4. In addition to linking to the threads at the top of the page, make a subforum for Xs and Os discussion. Thoughts?
  5. That split back trips formation against So. Miss last year was totally out of left field.
  6. Auburn gave up roughly 430 yards to Wazzu. A&M had a bunch of defensive suspensions and gave up 500 yards to Rice. That game was close until JFF came in. Spread offenses can put up huge points. Nebraska's does. It did it to an incredibly stout defense in Michigan St. Did Narduzzi all of a sudden forget how to coach because Nebraska torched them?
  7. Alabama runs it. They had a bitch of a time handling JFF and their air raid
  8. And he's played what 3 or 4 months? It's not like they're wasting the whole 2 mil
  9. Speed is nice, but if that and athleticism is all they have, we will get exploited in other spots. These guys have to have football smarts, along with the athleticism and speed to get on the field. Bo just released a presser and just said speed isn't everything. I agree with you, its going to be a good year. I just hope we have two players who can step up at DT and give us that push up front we have needed since '10. The Huskers won't see a non-spread team that is worth a damn until the last four games of the season. I'd rather have Gerry until it shows that we need more beef on the field.
  10. Nebraska likes to use 12 personnel, they did it a ton in the spring game, so this is a little concerning. It presents a matchup problem because if they go base defense, a capable TE can spread the formation out and vise versa against nickel. Where do natural formation problems come from with this offense?
  11. For those of us that take losses really hard, you're putting way too much expectation on 17-22 year old kids. That's the bigger picture here. We all love the brand, the tradition, the stadium, the what-have-you, but in a normal circumstance would you trust kids that age with getting your coffee order right 100% of the time?
  12. It was more of a feel thing for me, but we're on a message board. I apologize if I made it seem like a fact than just an opinion based on feel. If I knew a way to look this up (and I've tried) I would. I'm still researching. The feel that I have is that going empty on early downs have a small success rate in yards produced. Third and long situations, I've seen have more success as they have to shoot for the marker obviously. Again, if I knew where to find yards gained by play call/formation, I'd verify that feeling.
  13. I find this very hard to believe. Is there a way to look up stats by formation? I'll look it up if so
  14. I think that Bo is the one that started the mystique of "this is a privilege, you gotta earn it" thing with the blackshirts. There is still a starting 11 Nebraska defense and according to tradition, they are blackshirts because of that. That doesn't mean someone can't come up and take that spot from a starter. I think they should be given out early to motivate those who didn't make the starting 11. Then they'll push the starters to keep it. It's almost as if the shirt were a symbol for starting or something.
  15. In the last two years, the most successful Nebraska has been with an empty formation has been less than 15 yds. If I recall it was mostly because Turner made something out of nothing. Those plays are mainly designed to empty the box, but they have to be at least somewhat successful.
  16. I'm not gonna post it, you can search reddit.com/r/cfb as they don't care about it, but the illegal sites aren't illegal to use. The streamer is the one breaking the law. The site above is just the college football subreddit community. Tis really cool.
  17. Usually replaces the 'N' in the winning tradition patch, right?
  18. I remember having punt return teams that got after the punter AND two returners. I'm more concerned about coverage teams because the defense is the side that needs the most help from a field position standpoint than the offense does.
  19. That's just ignorant. If LP wasn't dumber than a sack of doorknobs, he would've won the Heisman in '95. GOING AWAY! Hands down
  20. You're not saying he's wrong yet you go on to say he's using a word incorrectly? So your interpretation of church doctrine is more correct than his? The person who's studied in seminary for many years and provided service to congregations for many more? The point: His opinion is different than doctrine His opinion doesn't fit your opinion either, which I'm assuming fits with "doctrine" Church doctrine varies over thousands of denominations Why does more than one opinion exist over such an important matter? Over something that is supposedly the true word of an omnipotent, omniscient, omnibenevolent god?
  21. If I met that guy in person I'd have a hard time not punching him in the face. It's been well documented that the current concept of hell was originated in Dante's Inferno. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dante%27s_Inferno Do all differing christian denominations and sects cause you anger? Frustration? Like they're wrong? About a book that's supposedly the true word of the Lord? Maybe not all of them do, but clearly some of them do...as this is a case of that. Do you understand why this is so hard for some of us, in this infinitely vast universe, to grasp this when your own people can't seem to get your stories straight?
  22. If you consider the '94 season where Brook started most of the games and even had Matt Turman eke out a win, the case can be made for his argument.... ...thing is though, how many guys were MVP's of three straight national championship games, one of which was a loss.
  23. Nebraska was honestly blitzing a lot more last year as well because, like someone posted above, they had the best pass defense in the nation. The wheels fell off because Baker got hurt and Cam went inside causing more single high safety play to help on the run, which was exacerbated by Stafford and Smith taking bad angles and tackling poorly. Honestly, if the back end can hold up their end of the deal again, the increased athleticism of the front seven will bring similar results of last year with better results against the better teams.
  24. It's not exactly Texas on that side of the coin. Ohio and Michigan are locked down but it helps that more teams will dilute the talent pool in a region that Nebraska isn't generally in, save a few Ohio kids.
