    From Bad Defense to Good Defense

    Dishman couldn't block the D-end all game. He had a windmill type of move with his arms, that threw Dishman one way or the other when he extended his arms to block. Stuggs or Suggs something like that. Problem was he was known for that move and still had his way. GBR!!!

    The Running Back Room

    Weren't we all kinda hyped up about Bradley a year ago? Belt seems to be in that kind of situation. Don't know if he will play much or at all, this year. Don't think he really went up against top talent, like some of the recruits coming in at r/b. Nice to be able to have that many choices for Frost to look at. After what Oz did last year, it should hype up the r/b's, that they to can play if they put in the work and wait their turn. GBR!!!

    Fred Hoiberg To Be Named Next Nebraska Coach

    I think Moos hit a homerun on his last hire, for a head coach. I don't care if he offered the job to Hoiberg last week or a month ago. There's no reason we can't put a team on the floor that can compete year in and year out, playing for a NCAA bid. The facilities are in place, the money is there, and the fan base will always be there. Tired of hearing it's only a football school. Tell that to Okl, OSU, Mich and the other football only programs, that have a team in the NCAA tourney year in and year out, and their teams in bowl games in Jan..... GBR!!!

    2019 NCAA Tournament Contest

    #1 N Carolina #2 Kentucky #2 Tennessee #5 Auburn #7 Nevada #12 Murray St #12 Oregon #13 Vermont #14 Old Dominion GBR!!!
  5. 15,000 + fans in attendance. This program is just waiting to explode. What would that place be like, if we ever get a basketball program to compete year in and year out, for a B1G title. "If" there is a next hire coming up, I hope they spend big for a proven head coach. GBR!!!

    OLB Coach Jovan Dewitt has Throat Cancer

    Hope coach Dewitt can beat it. I had it on the tongue way back in the throat. That was 11 yrs ago and still doing fine. Mayo clinic in Phoenix was just great. No chemo or radiation needed. New laser type of surgery back then. Good luck coach. GBR!!!
  7. This program is going to get worse, and maybe unwatchable for a while, no matter who they hire next. Better to start throwing out the bath water now, with the coach in it. Next hire has a big task in front of him. Not just recruiting kids to play here, but getting the fans to give him time. Miles had few players when he got here, to work with, new guy won't. jmo GBR!!!
  8. I said it in the recruiting post and I still think McCaffrey will come out of this class, as the top recruit for 2019, when we see how this class plays out, in a couple of years. GBR!!!

    Replacements for Miles

    Thanks for the info. That's what I was wondering about back then. Why didn't T O want to hire him ? Was it because he didn't want to cause bad feelings with Creighton or did he and Altman have a problem between them ? GBR!!!

    Replacements for Miles

    Where did you hear he hates Neb. I asked back when Miles was hired why they didn't hire him. Sounded to me he wanted the job then. I thought because he was coaching at Creighton, we didn't want to step on any toes. I asked if there was any bad blood between him and NU, and no one said they heard of any. I think we missed on him, and to get him back now would be a tough sell. What would you tell him the reason was, he was not hired last time the opening was there. Would love to see him come back and try to get the program up and running, but wouldn't blame him one bit if he said stick it..... GBR!!!

    Replacements for Miles

    Mikale Wilbon

    I thought his first few years he was just another Cross type back. A thumper. Something happened this last year, that has to have something to do with the new staff. Scheme, S&C, attitude, but what ever it was, it was the biggest turn around I have seen, that I can remember. I'm going to say all three. You just don't do what he did, in one year, the way he did it, without buying in completely to the new staff. GBR!!!
