  1. Watching Wyoming last night. They look better than Nebraska
  2. Well were headed for 4-8. Why not get some youth in there. Oregon's DB's who are regarded as top15-20 group in the country have all been starting since day one. Lenoir, Pickett, Graham Jr, They weren't very good as freshman but they are pretty good now.
  3. Husker wrestling is getting stronger. I gotta give it to Manning. I was upset with him after Green and Kokesh didn't even make finals, but I think this year, we could really make some noise at the national tournament. Which i'll be going to this year, which is super exciting.
  4. Bama just locked themselves into the playoff. Congrats for not winning the division. AGAIN, and being allowed a shot at the natty. 

     

    I freaking hate college football post season.

      If there's one thing I don't like about the playoff is that it has essentially made a game like this meaningless. Both of these teams will make it and Alabama will probably win, because the first game loser almost always seems to win the rematch in these situations.

      The thing is. I’d be fine with it if they put some requirements with how it’s only 4 teams.

       

      like you HAVE TO at least be a division winner. Although I’d like for it to be limited to conference champion. Regardless if that champion is 10-3 or not. 
       

      The committee has devalued certain conferences and I don’t think that’s right.

      It just makes me nuts that they get a second chance seemingly every year. Part of it I will admit is personal jealously. Our 1982 and 1983 squads didn't get second chances. All those teams that lost to Oklahoma in the final seconds never got second chances. I think Osborne woulda won five or six titles with this format, but I digress....

       

  5. Back during the time after we fired Pelini. I was all on the Fleck train, with every goofy antic he has. He's a players coach. Plus building Western Michigan is 100 times more impressive than UCF, considering the geographics. That statement is by no means ill will toward Frost. I think he's the right guy as I was all about him coming home too, but i'd like to see him bring energy by changing up the assistants some. I'd also like to see him go out and get some analysts like other schools do by bringing in former head coaches. I mean Butch Jones is at Alabama! Schiano is at OSU. I get the sense that Frost is a control guy though, and that he doesn't want others opinion. (totally unfounded comment and completely non factual opinion)
  6. Imagine what Wisconsin’s D will do to our OL. It’s a very real possibility QBs get hurt in this game. thats how awful the Greg Austin OL is
  7. It’s not Frost. It’s the assistants
  8. Basketball has to suck because you recruit so many guys and only land 3-4 guys
  9. I remember when people wanted TheSker banned for his negativity.
  10. Can’t wrap my mind around how he got it going so fast at UCF when they were freaking 0-12. Something in the water at the university that makes the boys soft or what?
  11. why I’ve stepped away from having a large presence on the board a year or 2 ago and then changed my name as well
  12. I haven’t been to a game in Lincoln rooting for Nebraska since the Bo Pelini era. the last game I went to in Lincoln was the Oregon game and was wearing yellow and rooting for Oregon. fwiw I don’t like when Oregon plays NU.
  13. There’s a reason Oregon fans weren’t mad when he followed Scott to UCF
  14. My fear is that this is the new normal. It's sad to hear kids in high school talk about how they don't watch Nebraska because "they suck". I hear it all the time, as a teacher. I'll never blame kids for being bandwagon. They want to be fans of something they can enjoy. NU football is not enjoyable and kids these days don't see the incentive of being a Nebraska fan. Unfortunately.
