  1. 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

  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.

      Good point Nuance. Haha! The whole damn thing looks exhausting to me LOL!

  5. 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
  6. 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

  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.

  9. I wish I was able to place a bet on who I thought would chime in. I'd have won me a little money huh cm Husker .
  10. 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
  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.
  12. 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 w
  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.
  16. Last year Youngstown State was 7-2 at this point in the season. This year they are 4-4. Thanks Obama, err, I mean Riley. Youngstown State was 7-2 now they're 4-4! Holy Crap! Yes Bo.....7! Their AD must be supporting them from under a freaking rock this year!
  17. So the reason Nebraska has went from 9-4 to 3-6 so far, ISN'T because of any of our former coaches failures, not because of a transition to completely different schemes, or entirely different personal and professional philosophies. It's the fault of the guy who CAME, Mr. Mike Riley. The reason Oregon St. has went from 5-7 to 2-6 so far, IS because of the former coaches failures. Not because of the completely different schemes, or entirely different personal and professional philosophies. It's the fault of the guy who LEFT, Mr. Mike Riley. Boy, people want to blame this guy for ever
  18. Huh. When I pointed out that Bo Pelini inherited a 7- 5 team at Youngstown State, brought in some of his own Power 5 studs, and is now coaching sub-500 football and complaining about the 14,000 seat stadium being half-full, you insisted that context was everything. #BOOM
  19. I think if our offensive line was better, we would run the ball more.
  20. Sam McKewon owning the discussion on 93.7 The Ticket right now.

      What's the narrative?

      I'll link the podcast or make a thread when it comes up.

  21. Eichorst didn't lend a message of support for Bo Pelini during the season because he didn't support Bo Pelini. I don't think they got along very well...... Crazy how when you treat people with respect and courtesy, your boss is willing to break his own rules to show support of you. I guess having a bit of class can be an advantage sometimes. Whodathunkit?

      Meanwhile Bo flapped in the wind for 5-6 weeks and became even more agitated and closer to a breaking point. Bo is responsible for his actions, but Eichorst didn't help the situation at all. If it was Eichorst's policy then so be it. But apparently it isn't. Apparently he let his feelings get in the way of being a professional. Funny, we fired a coach for doing that...

      Good point fun husker. Not sure what to make of Bo staying in 2013. I thought he would be fired that year.

  22. I think he's right. Time for a youth movement.
  23. So what if these same guys that refuse to buy in now, also refuse to buy in to the next staff if we decide to make a move. What if the 2016 Recruting class doesn't buy in to a staff that didn't recruit them. Seems to me like this coaching staff has bought in. They love this program. The reached out to former coaches and players almost immediately. They've embraced the history and tradition, and they understand the challenge and the expectations. If we've got people who aren't buying in and taking the challenge head on, don't want to be part of building this tradition, and don't
  24. The chances Bo had to do that, he screwed up fabulously. And they hit the nail exactly on the head: his entire culture was about resenting the fact that anybody wanted to do anything more. It's why a team captain from last year's squad is laughing at fans who wanted Bo gone for going 9-4. Their priorities were so far out of order. I agree wholeheartedly with Sam's perspective. Me too Zoogs. It's actually one of the smartest ways I've heard someone describe this whole mindset. McKewon is a sharp dude.
