    DL Coach Mike Dawson Takes Job with Giants

    Some good pass rush units in the ACC. If he’s interested, good hire.

    Morgan Breaks Career Receptions Record

    You’re not off. In 2018, Martinez threw 53 passes of 15+ yards, 23 passes of 25+ yards. (11 games) In 2017, Milton threw 100 passes of 15+ yards, 50 passes of of 25+ yards. (13 games)
  3. But did he really have to open up a used car lot next door?

    OT Turner Corcoran

    I think we are in a really good place, but he’s got some big names calling. Oh, and Kansas might actually start recruiting Lawrence, which would be new for them.

    I miss Godwin’s law, too.

    What if Nebraska went the Notre Dame route...

    I dont think Notre Dame could even do it today. They do have a rather unique national hook, but every generation has gotten less and less religious. The difference in Notre Dame on the field since 1991 has obviously also changed. Probably the biggest issue, however, is Notre Dame in 1991 was available, being an independent. Their success on NBC could be seen as a significant catalyst that started conferences consolidating power to increase television bargaining strength. A lot of these current contracts end around the same time, which fuels a lot of realignment talk. One big media shakeup that could have repercussions down the line is the very one sided CBS deal with the SEC. The SEC is not happy about it in general, but particularly unhappy that CBS wouldn’t re-negotiate when Texas A&M was added.

    Unfortunately, in the end that didn’t work out well. There may have been no saving that particular situation, I don’t know. But there are lots of cases it does work. As mentioned, a big difference here is this case is pre-Nebraska, so there’s hope that Mo can reciprocate the help this staff is showing him and put some of these troubles behind him.

    Of what we know of Mo’s life, it would not be a good for him, and likely those around him, for him to be removed. He’s getting the kind of structure, and with a coach like Held, tough love, that he hasn’t had. I know a lot of people think that’s unfair, after all athletics can be very rewarding, but sports programs have also done a lot to help kids transition into productive adults.

    *** 2020 Recruiting ***

    I’ve always wondered how any of these rating systems can generate 4 significant digits. Maybe I’m OCD.

    Martinez for Heisman

    The problem is having that sort of statistical game and winning it. Those games generally come in shoot-outs. A lot of this depends on us having a defense good enough to win games. Seems everything this season does.

    Martinez for Heisman

    Heisman favorites over recent years have not fared well. A big reason for so many surprises is so many offenses are capable of generating Heisman level stats if things break their way.

    Martinez for Heisman

    Thanks. You are indeed the first. However, outside of the QB run sentence, you just described about any modern one back offense (few won’t use a tight end or h-back). The only other sentence that would disqualify Frost’s offense would be the under center comment. When I see people commenting on a “pro style” offense, what they usually mean is the QB is mostly under center. The NFL, also known as the pros, is rapidly moving towards more and more plays from Shotgun. The one sentence I would take exception of is the first. While it is true most of the NFL is from either the Bill Parcells or Bill Walsh coaching trees, Bill Walsh himself used almost exclusively two back sets. His use of split backs was so common, that was the set in the old days that got labeled the “pro set”.

    Martinez for Heisman

    How plausible are those? If we took last year’s numbers, remove Michigan/St since no team on the schedule projects to that level of defense, then take the average multiplied by 12 games: 3266 passing yards 830 rushing yards It’s very likely, if he plays 12 games, he hits those marks. Not only should we expect him to personally improve, but this offense should improve by 60-70 yards as a whole, using its history as a guideline. The one thing I’d expect is for his rushing yards to decline slightly. Too many QB runs last year. It was used as a bit of a crutch last and as the offense as a whole improves they’ll wean off of that. Conversely, 4000 passing yards is not out of the question. It’s harder to project TDs, but with the kind of speed we should see this year, passing TDs could be quite high.

    The next person that tells me what “pro style” means will be the first.

    It’s also annoying as hell. Don’t these people know we have nothing better to do.
  17. Passing is simply more efficient, by a lot. As mentioned, though, it’s harder to coordinate (hence the defensive rules). So it’s a catch 22 for fans that like this style.

    2019 Husker Football Schedule

    Luke Fickell’s name has already been thrown around quite a bit. Another year like that and I’d expect him gone. I agree, barring exceptional circumstances like we saw this year, that game isn’t getting replaced. I also don’t think having 3 weak non-cons is an issue that year. We open with Purdue, which could be much, much stronger than they historically have been.

    I liked this thread better when it was about eye rolls and the danger they posed to grown adults.

    Huskers in 2019....

    I really hope we see some of that speed on the football field next year. Putting 2 or 3 real burners like him on the field at the same time is lethal to our West buddies whom strongly favor LBs. Even though it didn’t result in a win, and too many failed drives, the Wisconsin game last year is a blueprint. We saw: Washington in the passing game. His second best of the year, with the best being against LB heavy Iowa. Quads and Empty sets. Spielman burning them. Frost knew how to attack them, but too many execution errors. Add the speed of Woodyard and some of these other guys and those same tactics get taken to another level.

    This only got 3 eye rolls? I can’t complete my collection at this rate.

    Nobody arrest any Huskers until Saunders gets back. And maybe for 5 minutes after that.
