    20 year olds aren't kids and I would like to hear what you think of the effort shown on the "Move the pile" play...because it is fair to judge a player's effort based on the effort he showed. To be fair to Gerry and Maurice here: The rules of the game have wussified this sport so much. If those two guys go firing in there and try to make a play, there's probably a flag thrown for unnecessary roughness. The guys thought their teammates were making the play. As they should've. Now, I'm not dismissing the whole effort argument at all. I think there's some issues. Hopefully what will all work itself out. On that play though, I can totally see where the possible penalty flag puts doubt in players minds. As far as the other two plays in there, I think it is obvious that Gerry is truly still adjusting to playing in this scheme. I don't think he's the only one. That's where we got to find the balance. It doesn't mean it's a bad scheme. It doesn't mean it's a bad player. Sometimes in this game of football, not every football players fits every scheme. Whoa whoa whoa, you were all over the kid in the gameday thread last week against Purdue. I mentioned that you don't have a player just drop off like this and blame it on the kid, it's mostly the scheme and coaching IMO. You didn't directly respond to me, but you did say that to think it's scheme is idiotic. So can I assume you're changing your stance on this? I did mention that part of it was probably on Gerry, but it appeared most of it would be coaching and scheme at this point. Wow.....I was "all over the kid" in the gameday thread? Man if I said something out of line in the emotions of the game, then I apologize. What did I say? I really don't remember. I do remember posting a status update questioning if he was injured or not. I really think he might be. Not sure though. As the season has gone on, I've found myself in a position where I come to this board and see nothing but blame for the coaches. In an effort to "level the field" a bit, I've demonstrated multiple times that in reality, there's plenty of blame to go around. Fact is, there should be struggles. I've been trying to tell people that. There is nothing similar about Banker and Pelini's defenses. When I say, Gerry or anybody for that matter, isn't performing, really I'm just saying that they aren't executing well and they may not be a fit for this type of defense. It's not a knock on them as a player, it's just the truth. There will be guys that just do not fit what we are trying to do on either side of the ball. The execution side of things is simple really. There's still some confusion out there. I do think some guys are frustrated with the way the season has gone. Some guys do look to have let off a bit at times. Again, just being honest in my opinion. Not hateful. If I gave that impression, that's my fault. I think Nate Gerry is a f#*k of a football player and a high character dude that may either be injured or just really struggling in this system at this point. I really hope he sticks it out and learns this system as the coaches learn how to utlize him. Bo was right about one thing. It's a process. No doubt about it. I never expected it to go smoothly, but I never expected the win/loss record to be this bad. Overall when I've evaluated it though, it's mostly just been about unfamiliarity and some bad breaks. It's football. That's just how it is. It's unfortunate that my attempt to disrupt a bit of the "Fire Riley" commotion with some illustrations of the all around struggles as a program, has come off as a complete defense of this staff, or an attack on any particular player. That's never the intent, but I am surely not the guy who is always free of emotion and passion when stating my opinions. I'll try to do better.

  3. The Ol' Ball Coach in a Husker jacket. Hell yes! Don't like him when we are playing against him, but the man knows his football. He knows talent too. I heard on the radio he's doing some consulting? Meaning he might be here to watch the team and kind of help examine who, where, and how we could get better? I'm just throwing out what I heard and what he could possibly be doing here. Can't say I know for sure. Welcome to Big Red Nation for the weekend Coach!
  4. Serious question here Huskerboard.com. Does Baylor rotate offensive linemen?

      When we're unhappy about losing, we find an amazing ability to diagnose "issues". Losing brings out the best coaches in all of us.

      I know Zoogs. I literally put it as "serious question Huskerboard" because I literally am just trying to figure out if rotating is becoming a trend in football or what the idea behind it is. I know the old school guy in me says, "team's don't rotate, build chemistry and play together", but football is a changing game, no denying that. Watch Baylor.....this game is changing. Yet, Old Dog K-State can still give them a run for their money...I love it.

    LOL....this is akin to: Father going through divorce and having a supper with his young kids: "Kids, your mother is a rotten slutty whore that is a cowardice bitch and is impossible to live with. Her a-hole parents are clueless and do nothing but tear me apart for no reason other than their own hidden motives......But, I want you to try your best to love her and your grand parents. But, if you don't want to love them, there are other places you can live. Good luck." Yeah....that really inspires the thought of saying goodbye in a supportive way. But...hey....he did say, "But, I want you to try your best to love them". Bad analogy. Bo didn't bad mouth his successor. He only talked badly about Pederhorst. And he told the truth. A better analogy would be the dad telling the kids that their mother is a wonderful woman, but her boss is a jackass. Bo talked badly about many more then SE on many occasions. he hated everyone and everything here at Nebraska and made it well known to his players how he felt. he pissed in the well every chance he had. but he did...at the end of telling everyone how bad it was here...tell them to support their new coach. Mike may be the only person he didn't throw under the bus from Nebraska....good thing you are here to do that for Bo. That's patently false, but if it helps you deal with this crap season, believe whatever you want. who did Bo like besides himself and his players? I won't answer that. I wouldn't do that to ya, man! I can tell you need to believe your narrative. lol no answer. got it. The only ones he didn't like were the fairweathered fans who booed at games and left early (or the ones who would've if they had been there.) And they are pretty easy to spot, because they say very similar things to what you've been posting. I laughed out loud.

    3-9 is absolutely needed for some fans, like the count. The amount of ego that certain fans tie into the football program is beyond ridiculous. That ego needs a beating. However, it happened before, and it didn't seem to do any good then. So, maybe there's just no hope for certain fans. OTH, I feel bad for the players recruited under the previous HC during a season like this. I totally agree. I feel bad for some of the players that have to endure a down year like this, of course they too attribute to that down year. But some Husker fans need a serious beat down on their entitlement and "holier than thou" mentality. There's actually radio show hosts and fans talking about this game Saturday, saying if we win, no way should we rush the field. "Act like you've been there" they say. "We're better than that"! The hell we are. We aren't better than anybody right now. We are right on par with the same teams that storm the field when they beat us. We haven't been overwhelmingly better than the in a long time. Sure we've won a lot of games, more than we have this year, but I've seen nothing on the field that spreads us from the pack aside from a kid named Ameer Abdullah and Ndamukong Suh if you want to go back further. If we win Saturday, hell yes storm that field students. Enjoy the highs when you can. This should be fun. Stop getting so low with the lows. What good does it do. We'll be back someday. I guarantee it. Thanks to some pouty entitled asshat, I'm sitting in their seat Saturday night. Got em cheap! Me and my daughter will enjoy it I promise! What good does it do to storm the field. You endanger your fellow fans, the players, and damage property. And why, because you have self esteem issues? You don't even honor your team doing it, you insult them. Support your team. Applaud their accomplishments, from the stands, where fans belong. Not really sure what good it does. It sounds fun. My argument wasn't really about the pros and cons of storming the field, it was more against the idea that we are somehow "above it".

  8. I love K-State football. I hate em if we play them, but the way they play so damn smart. They play hard! Damn I respect that program a lot. I got a lot of respect for Snyder and the way he's able to get the most from his team too. Can't say I care what thier win/loss record is....that's a good football team. They execute, and they play hard. All you can ask.

      I always have too PowerT. I mean always. Even back when they competed with us. I keep watching this game wondering how good would Tommy Armstrong be in their offense? It'd be interesting I think. He'd probably be really good.

      Agree 100%. Always loved watching them, and always cheer for them as long as we aren't playing them. Could the B1G maybe dump Rutgers and Maryland and bring in some of our old Big 8 brethren? A guy can dream, right?

      Hope our coaches are watching this game so Snyder can teach them good time management.

    Recruiting Comparison

    In Callahan's 4th season (2007) he was still starting 7 Solich recruits on offense. So, what criteria did you pull out of your butt to determine who was "notable"? Who was a good starter on offense that year that was from Solich?? Joe Dailey doesn't count Joe Dailey was long gone before 2007. Do you have any idea what you are talking about? Nate Swift was one. Obviously, he fit your mysterious "notable" criteria, but you have him listed as a Callahan recruit. He was Solich's first commit for the '04 class. Committed in June of '03. There are tons more examples. Dane Todd was a Solich kid. He made first team All Big 12 for Callahan in '06. There were also about 14 guys on Callahan's first roster that went on to sign NFL contracts. Just start over and list all the players. Why do you talk to people like that and what makes you think it's okay? Maybe even bigger question is why do the mods here continue to ignore it? Big Ern stated in his first post he wasn't placing any bias on anything. He was just compiling a list the best he could and opening the discussion for debate. It's a message board. That's kind of the point. Then here you come telling him he's pulled things "out of his ass" as if he's got an agenda. You're the one with an agenda and apparently you get to be outright disrespectful to people to prove it.
  11. I think I'm going. Should be fun. I never was one to bail out during the hardest times. I'm not real bright. Funny thought. What if we win? I mean, this is football. This is a home game. It'd be one of the biggest wins in Memorial Stadium in years and I would get to say that I was there.

    So awesome. I wish Pelini had never stepped a foot into this program. The more people in the know that come forward and call out that piece of sh#t, the better. It obviously needs to be acknowledged more when you see so many people that seem to just ignore it. Thank you Mr. Pettit for having the guts to speak the truth.
  13. MSU on the road this year, 37-24 Western Michigan, 31-24 Rutgers, and 27-23 @ Michigan. So their games on the road have been fairly close. If Nebraska can be loud and be disruptive to Connor Cook's communication, it could be absolutely game changing. I'm not sugarcoating that. It truly could influence this game. We need Husker fans to get their sh#t together this weekend and bring it for this team! Night game and both teams should be fueled by the disrespect they've received this week. I'm sure MSU doesn't like the fact that so many people think this game will be close. They will want to prove something. Nebraska should be pissed......well, you know why.
  14. People in glass houses, don't you know...9-3 vs. 3-6... ...I will make sure to revisit this particular post at the end of the season, to give both Pelini and Riley a chance to be judged by an entire year, which is fair. We can both comment then, if you like. I must've hit a nerve on that one.
  15. Sometimes I wish we had three true freshman to choose from. I kid, I kid. Looks like Anderson at OSU must've picked the wrong one huh? Their offense sucks. Or it could be that Anderson and Riley don't even come close to having the same philosophy offensively. Let's stick to the mantra here, blame coaches and blame players. Transition, smansmitions.
