  1. Frost has definitely gotten super conservative inside the 30, but I wonder if the purdue game doesn't explain why. With our Qb's struggling, and the fact its harder to get guys in space once inside the redzone, and the fact that our Qb's are really struggling to throw guys open and instead forcing throws that equal turnovers, that equals at least 3 points left off of the board. It seemed like that after AMart threw the pick inside the redzone, Frost changed it up and we started to become more successful, and started to have AMart run downhill more and then AMart's confidence grew and he started to play better. Hopefully that's a sign of progress on both of their parts and we will see a better offense this week against a much stouter defense
  2. I think you're right. We have to sell out to stop the run. I think our secondary is good enough that they can cover Wisconsins receivers, but they can't have any run responsibility this week, because if they have to worry about the run then the play action will crush us. But until we get a lot better at the LB and D-Line position Wisconsin won't have to worry about throwing the ball much against us
  3. Might have something to do with the kind of offense Wisconsin runs and the fact that our current DL is going to get the crap kicked out of them so they will need to implement some kind of rotation
  4. Theres no way he doesn't know the offense, probably considerably better than AM. AM showed up in the fall last year and won the starting job. Vedral has had actually been around the offense for 3 full years and had more than one off season in the system. Honestly part of AM's success last year might of been because Frost had to use the K.I.S.S. method. (Keep It Simple Stupid). AM seems like he is always trying to make the big play instead of just reacting to what he sees.
  5. I know a lot of people, my self included, have been frustrated with the results we have seen on the field. But lets look at a few different things. 1. I honestly believe the team last year, may have only 1 or 2 wins this year. Other than Ohio St and Minnesota (who I think is better than anyone wants to give credit), we have fought hard in every game and been in position to win every one. Last year, we would have lost to Northwestern, Illinois, and hell possibly USA as well. 2. We don't have a lot of studs on the field right now, especially on defense. When you watch the games, how many position groups, or even just players do you see and think, man they are towards the top of the conference. Is that Frost's fault? IDK I think maybe a little bit, but based on what was here when he got here, and how little time he had to put his first recruiting class together it's really not that big of a surprise that were struggling and a lot of the time out of position due to our lack of athletes 3. The type of kids Frost and his staff have been recruiting look to be promising. Look at the size of our O-Line recruits. We seem to be getting big, strong, kids, who are rated pretty highly. Our best athletes are the guys Frosts staff have recruited. The shelves were a lot more empty then we realized when Riley left and unfortunately this program is more of a rebuild then a program like this ever should have been. Go ahead, get frustrated at the ugly losses, the state of our program now, but don't lose site of the big picture. I know there are some people calling for the firing of different staff members and wanting to see different people in Frost's ear telling him how he should run the program and what he should do. That would totally be cutting off our nose to spite our face. It would just continue to set the program back. Let Coach Frost do what he came here to do. There's a reason why he got the amount of time on his contract he did. It's been said nobody cares about the program as much as he does. I believe that to be true.
  6. 08- vs KU 09-@ KU 10- @ Kstate 17- vs Rutgers So far NU is 4-0 in games I've been fortunate enough to attend
  7. This would definitely be a great for our coaching staff to use as a recruiting pitch. When they came in Lamar Jackson was playing poor at best, then after just a year and a half of coaching they were able to help him reach his potential and be a 1st round draft pick. This could really help us snag some nice DB's in the future
  8. does anybody know whats actually wrong with him?
  9. I think with our young and fairly inexperienced line running more I-formation makes sense. Out of the I you usually use more down blocking and pulling of guards and tackles, which I think is easier for a lineman, then having to try to zone and reach the more athletic d-linemen of today. I think thats one of the reasons that Wisconsin runs the ball so well, they have big strong kids that can be aggressive, get on a block, drive their feet and open holes for the backs. It also allows for the backs to know where the hole is going to be, hit it hard and fast, and be able get yards after contact. Also I think with our backfield right now, and lack of receiver depth it is a great wrinkle in our offense. It will slow the game down some for A-Mart who is in need of it. Help him gain some confidence and give our defense a break.
  10. The way that the NCAA has treated athletes for years is criminal! I believe there will be a day in the relatively near future, where college athletes are fairly compensated and the NCAA either completely reformed or only deals with D2 and down schools, where the money is not nearly as good.
  11. I'm not a big believer in this. I understand the thought process behind it, but if you take advantage of running your plays against lesser competition then your chances of executing against really good teams is a lot less. The more you show the more they have to prepare for. Also every coach puts in new things and makes adjustments every week that the other team hasn't seen until they play one another. The only plays I think you might hold back is any trick plays you have in your arsenal.
  12. I think a lot of it too is the difference in play calling. On that drive Frosts calls are very aggressive and put a lot of pressure on the defense. It also appears that the reads for Martinez are simpler and allows him to be confident in what he sees. I think Coach Frost should have his foot on the pedal more often like he did in this drive
  13. I said it in another thread and I think for the most part it's true. I had originally said that Clemson and Alabama wasn't built in 2 years. It was pointed out that Alabama pretty much was built in 2 years. That made me realize that we really were more talent deficient than originally thought. We are pretty young, and are in the wrong part of the country for recruiting to be as easy as it is at an SEC school or most ACC schools. We have shown a lot of improvement on defense, except for getting caught on a trick play, a busted coverage, and a lost fumble when we were driving the ball from being 2-0. These things will be cleaned up as we become more experienced. I agree that Frost's play calling has been troubling but I think that will improve as well. I do not envy him and the pressure he must be under coming back to Nebraska to be the "savior" of the program. The culture is changing, but it may take longer than most of us unfortunately thought. Guys, sit back, enjoy the ride, and try not to freak out too much over the loses. GBR!
  14. If you get the chance, I recommend you watch "The Family" on Netflix.

      I started that last night actually on a whim.  The story seems like it is or could be really good.  Just not a hug fan of shows with lots of re enactments.  Maybe I will pick up where I left off.
