  1. North Carolina -3.5 over @ Va Tech @Cal -10.5 over Oregon St. @Iowa -18.5 over Purdue
  2. The same could be said for Jim Harbaugh, Lovie Smith, Willie Taggert, and half a dozen others. All these guys were hot commodities at previous gigs. A lot of these guys will be successful again if given enough time. But some--maybe most--are on the hot seat, and won't be given the time they need to get their teams to the top. The thing that's different with Frost is we are all in with him. He's the golden boy native son with a nice long contract. He is here for the long term. And he WILL turn things around. It may not be apparent to people, but we are making progress. Have patience.
  3. Meh, I don't think the ads are *that* bad.  It's a free board.  Got to pay the bills somehow.  :shrug:

      Ppl should be used to it. Pretty much every other site or app has ads

      They were almost nonexistent, until I said as much

      ^ yeah, way to effect that up. I never once had adds on my mobile chrome browser, then you knuckle heads start blabbing about it and now they're all over the place. It's really f#&%ing annoying when I try to click on a thread 3 times in a row only to have it jump around as adds load. :angry:

  4. 7 We're in year two. He's bringing in talent. Upgraded several positions already. But it's gonna take a while to upgrade enough to compete in the Big Ten. People need to remember that we're not in the American conference playing Temple, Tulane and East Carolina.
  5. Yeah, picking ATS is a bitch. A 50-50 proposition on average. Last year I was a little bit over 50% for the year--about 53% or so. The first 5 weeks of this season I went 15-15 for exactly 50%. The last two weeks Lady Luck has been smiling on me. I'm 11-1 at the moment, which is an anomaly of good fortune. Woo hoo!
  6. Whitesnake "Long Way From Home" Oh, we'll get home eventually--in the hunt for a national title. But we got a ways to go.
  7. I went 6-0 in the pool I'm in. Payout each month for about $200, and I'm 11-1 so far this month. Woo hoo! I'm on a roll, baby! (Up to last week I've been batting right at .500 ATS.)
  8. Sure! I'll bet we could lure Monte Kiffen away from Florida Atlantic. Is George Darlington available? lol
  9. Well.  That sucked. 

  10. If we should lose, we'll stand by the road,
  11. Yup. It's must see for BB fans. It tells the backstory of some characters, plus ends the BB saga.
  12. We've only covered the spread once this year. Huskers not a good ATS bet. :shrug:
  13. So ... we have our second QB controversy? Even before the #2 guy gets named the starter? Wow!
  14. It gives me a good feeling to see the two recent commit notices at the top of the main page.  Seems like progress is being made.  /pours a  bit of red Kool-Aid into the whiskey tumbler.

      I didn't fully realize how bad the talent gap was until that composite recruiting rankings came out and we found out OSU was #2 with like 60 4- and 5-star players on its roster.

       

      We're a distant fourth behind Penn State (#10) and Michigan (#11) and ahead of Wiscy (#33) who seems to consistently more with less. But hey, we're #24 so it's not that bad. Still, gonna have to learn to compete with those top 3 or really kick a$$ at development like Wiscy if we're gonna be relevant.

       

      It's a Jimmies and Joes problem at this point, not Xs and Os. Thanks Riley!

      @Danny Bateman Have you looked at the rankings for this year's class yet? We're currently #30, behind Wisconsin, Iowa, and Purdue, and one spot above Northwestern.

      Our average recruit rating is a bit higher than theirs, but still behind the big boys of the conference. I'd like to see the average get up over 89, which is the minimum line for a 4* rating.

      @Toe Yep. Clearly still struggling a bit. Nebraska has always been a difficult place to recruit, except maybe in the TO era. He had the added benefit of partial qualifiers, which meant getting a lot of excellent athletes who struggled in the classroom to campus.

       

      Clearly Frost has been good for recruiting but we've got a lot of work to do yet. Success on the field begets success bringing more talent. We've got to continue scratching out wins, close & ugly if need be. Finishing 4-2 down the homemstretch would mean a chance at a 9-win season, a good bowl game and would do a ton of good recruiting, IMO.

  15. ScottyIce was a perfect candidate for the Long Vacation. When I was a mod on this board there were posters who picked up a number of infractions and generally became so annoying they were on the cusp of being banned by other mods. For a few of them I imposed what I call the Long Vacation—a vacation of six months or more. Most of those posters calmed down and came back to the board with a better attitude. Some didn't. Another observation from when I was a mod is that I HATED it when other former mods would weigh in and criticize my decisions—basically telling me how to do my job. (I eventually stepped down from being a mod because of this.) So ... mods, please don't ban me for this post telling you how to do your jobs. (Give me a Long Vacation instead! lol)
  16. 10 runs.  1 inning.  wow

  17. Make no mistake, this game could go either way. It's probably the hardest road game we have left on our schedule. And Minny is favored by 7.5. That said, I have a gut feeling that we're gonna win this week. Wasn't it about this time last year when we really got things together?
  18. The frustration level for all of us is running pretty high. I say let bygones be bygones. +1
  19. Air Force -4.5 over Fresno St. Boise St. -11.5 over Hawaii Wisconsin -9.5 over Mich St. edit: I went with Wisc over Sparty instead of betting on Neuter Dame

    8-4

    Agreed. We miss the guys from last year and Martinez is experiencing the sophomore jinx. I think the "something else" you mention is that D-coordinators have film on Martinez. Just like Taylor Martinez. Remember those first five or six games? Remember Kansas State? He was unstoppable. So many long, highlight reel runs. But then D-coordinators started game planning for him, and his production went down. (That, and T-Magic might have been slowed a step due to injury.) In case you want to walk down the memory lane remembering how great T-Magic was his R-frosh year, here he is crushing the soul of Kansas State: It's hilarious listening to the announcers at 1:00 in that youtube talk about K-State's halftime adjustments--and then watching Martinez peel off a huge TD run.
