  1. They would if they have a former player on the Nebraska team. FYI, I've heard the same thing. That JD and the Davis twins (among others) caused a lot of problems last year. Exact same story about the "cold" practice.
  2. The rise of the B1G is directly related to the hiring of Urban Meyer. To say anything else is complete insanity.
  3. I agree. That guy sounds like a whiny b!^@h.
  4. Somebody just called a guy with 12 career passes a “technician” and said Martinez was a better athlete than McCaffery. Holy s#!t. Time to ignore this person.
  5. It’s been 6 years? Holy hell. Man. Anyway, welcome back.
  6. He hasn't qualified yet, they believe he will. I hope to hell he does. He is an amazing athlete and I love Nebraska Football and want him to be a game changer for us.
  7. Dude, if you had any idea how ridiculously dumb these kids are these days... Sorry I was a little defensive, I've had him in class and coached him. I'm not his dad, but if any of you ever met his father you would be blown away by his story. It is really inspiring. X is exactly what I wish every other top tier athlete would be like. I do know that Betts may have more measurables and better testing numbers, but I also don't believe he will ever wear a Nebraska uniform (or any uniform above JUCO). I hope I'm wrong. For those that asked who I'd remove from this class to add X, it would be Betts. From conversations had from Burke football coaches and Nebraska's football coaches, they felt the same way. I'm glad he chose Notre Dame, not because of football reasons. I would obviously have loved to see him at DONU. It was the reason he made the choice and his motivation to be the best student he can be. I'd never blame anyone for taking a scholarship to Notre Dame, Stanford, or some place like that. You can't put a true value on what that degree would mean.
  8. He's an amazing kid, a born leader, friends with every type of kid and a over 4.0 GPA kid that scored super high on the ACT. The flat earth thing is a running joke around Burke right now. He committed to Notre Dame for the relationships and networking after college because he is aware the chances of making it pro are low and wanted to set himself up for the rest of his life. Not because of what brand of uniform they wear. He doesn't care about those type of things. You guys don't know the kid. This was a miss, no doubt about it.
  9. Rutgers transfer TE that was scout team Offense MVP on here?
  10. I bet Martinez has at least one surgery in the next week or two. He had to have been injured. It's either that, or Frost doesn't have much faith in him at all because if he is everything that Frost PUBLICLY proclaims he is why would he have sub packages for backup QBs? If he is really a dude, you don't take him off the field. I think he is hurt or Frost had decided he needs to open up the competition.
  11. There is no way the bolded can be anybody's actual opinion
  12. He didn't travel due to illness, not injury.
  13. I'm not sure any one should lose their job, I should have stated that. I just think those two are very good coaches. I do question our LB play, however. With how this defense is run, the edge is many times set with an OLB. OLB who have repeatedly ran themselves out of position to set that edge. I do agree, however, that there is not a lot of talent on that side of the ball. My biggest problem with this staff, and this goes for offense as well, is the lack of in game adjustments. We seem to gameplan very well during the week and are successful at watching film for how to attack teams early. Where we really struggle is adjusting to the other teams adjustments. This is a sign of young coaches. I just don't know if young coaches learning on the fly deserve the paychecks they are getting. Frost said something to the effect of "I came here to fix Nebraska and if there are guys here that can't get that done then maybe they need to go. I'll let nothing get in the way of that." (or something similar) The question was geared toward players, but I'm not so sure he wasn't sending a message to coaches. The Head Coach has some very difficult decisions to make. What he does decide may very well define his time here at Nebraska.
  14. Well, obviously the scheme we run needs to be taken into account and I am not a fan of a 3-4 that doesn't attack but within the scheme these two assistants have coached it well. Remember, they are teaching what Chin tells them to teach so in many ways you have to look at development of individual players over how the unit as a whole performs because they are working within a flawed scheme. There has been major improvement over two years with our DBs. Lamar Jackson went from benched to a potential first round pick under Fisher, he also has recruited very well. He lost his staring S in like the second game and has shown the ability to move two CB into S roles this season. He can teach both positions. If there were any pass rush from the damn OLB maybe the DBs would be in better shape on obvious passing downs. Or if the MLB wasn't covering the slot all of the time. The DL is much better than it was last year. In this defense, it is not the DL's job to shed blocks and make plays. They are supposed to take up double teams as much as possible and let the LBs make the play. Our LBs overrunning plays and constantly being out of position in their gap responsibility is why we suck against the run. The fact our DL lead our team in sacks is so sad and is the main reason the defense can't get off the field. They cannot generate a pass rush as the 4th guy coming (an OLB) is supposed to be the pass rushing specialist. Also he has only been here a year and has gotten some momentum in recruiting as well.
  15. I'd have Osborne at practice as often as possible over the by week and I'd install power running game. We don't have the lineman to zone block. Just line up and try to run over the guy in front of you.
  16. Travis Fisher should stay. So should Tuioti.
  17. No, it wasn't. It was a "get your a$$ over here", because he was right. LBs and DBs were misaligned. I'm sure it was a film study thing so he knew what was happening. Lamar was the only guy that had a chance at the WR on the jet sweep and he was chasing all the way across the formation as he went in motion. Should have had a LB over there.
  18. Offer Kevin Steele $2.5 million/year to come back here and fix this s#!t.
  19. Post of the year. Truer words have never been posted on Huskerboard.
