  1. USC confirmed through their sources that Fisher was carted off the field with a broken leg. Matt Schick tweeted that one of the photographers who work for the TV station he is affiliated with was at practice and confirmed the same thing. Yeah, Schick, Sipple and Kugler all tweeting that Fischer was carted off the field.
  2. Yeah, he probably "heard" it on a message board like this one.
  3. Accept the bullseye. Love the bullseye. It will only make us stronger.
  4. The problem I think most of us see with this is that it's incredibly difficult to have that on a yearly basis. It would be a highly complex offense to learn and therefore you might struggle to get your best athletes on the field immediately, which is something Osborne was always able to do. I also get a little tired of hearing people say you have to be "multiple" in order to keep the defense guessing. Just because you run the ball most of the time doesn't mean you're not keeping the defense off-balance. There's a huge diversity of blocking schemes and running plays and playaction passes t
  5. Here's my mock-up of what it'll look like come gameday.

  7. Yeah, thank God it's gone and not coming back. Now we've got all those awesome horizontal passes and a running threat that does great vs SunBelt teams. TO or Solich for 31 years never had an offense that could match last year. Notice I said at Nebraska, the option offense by itself isn't a miracle worker, but it can be effective. It just ticks me off when people think the option itself made Nebraska effective, it was TO and the coaching staff that did it! There were TONS of teams in the 70's, 80's and 90's that ran it with little success. Heck, even when TO didn't have the p
  8. We had large, athletic linemen. It's a minor thing, but something I noticed. On some of those mid-90's teams, Nebraska's linemen were plenty big, but not the kind of linemen other teams recruit. If you're running a pro-style offense, you're looking for guys that were 6'6" or 6'7" and have huge wingspans. Nebraska's dominant lines in the mid-90's were more stout, and they had great feet. They generally ranked more in the 6'2" range. So it is a different type of athlete. However, I have no idea if the type of athlete we had on offensive line in the mid-90's was any more rare than your ty
  9. Good lord, I want a true freshman running back like THAT again. Ahman Green ftw.
  10. Cheap shot, AND I think those who placed all of the blame on O'Hanlon were wrong. The CB/LB was just as much to blame. Just because one person is close to the person who makes the catch does NOT mean that it was their sole responsibility. Quite to the contrary actually. That person might be trying to correct a coverage mistake by someone else. O'Hanlon and Asante were both VERY good. They won't be easily replaced. Edit: toned down a bit . . . I'm not trying to dump on O'Hanlon, or Asante, and I'm not trying to say that they'll be easily replaced. My point was that while they we

  13. the press confrence "they(nebraska) made a spectacle of it" he's also including the regents meeting in that as well as "unnessary" Amusing. I imagine KU and MU would have acted in a more "professional" manner had they received the offer. Please dont group MU in with this idoit. He is a KU product. Got canned in STL not long ago and 810 wouldnt take him back (for good reason) he was nothing more than an annoying sidekick on 810 for years. I have hated him for a long time. He is a rambling idiot he's a foolish dolt he's a vociferous schnook.
  14. I like how one of his arguments is that Nebraska should want to stay because the Big 12 North is so weak. Way to dump on all the schools you're rooting for.
  15. Smith played some very quality time against Oklahoma when Asante went out hurt, and people should be careful not to put Asante and O'Hanlon up on a pedestal. They were lights out at the end of the year, but there were holes early on (Virginia Tech anybody?) I highly doubt that 2 days of practice have led the coaches to any decisions on who might be their top 2 safeties, and I'm guessing that regardless of who ends up starting, they'll begin the year at a higher level then O'Hanlon and Asante did last year.
  16. I agree with this. QB/O-Line is where our biggest weaknesses are, so I would think that improving one of these positions would improve the offense the most. I am unsure of how much of an impact one lineman could make when the rest are average, so I say pick a QB. And our playbook and personnel are built perfectly for Joe Ganz. We aren't built to run triple options anymore, so I don't think a Frazier or Gill would be as effective as they were when they actually played. Defensively, biggest weakness is clearly linebacker. Demorrio Williams, Carlos Polk, Trev Alberts, etc. Either one of t
  17. Well, according to previous posters, Mitchell and Middleton got into some trouble this summer... Kenny Bell has a hamstring injury, and Pelini said he was about 10 days away from being healthy, so they decided to give his fall camp spot to someone else that could make the most of the camp. As for the others, I haven't seen any details anywhere.
  18. Lazari Middleton is also not on the roster.
  19. Whatever the case, I hope reporters start asking about it as soon as possible. I think it's Bo's favorite question to get, and I'm sure he can't wait for the Blackshirt intrigue to start again.
  20. Crouch cocky? Have you ever met the guy before and actually had a few conversations with him? He is not cocky. To those who picked Frazier.... I think Frazier is a horrible pick for this team. He was born and raised to run the option. Watson would not call enough option plays for him to thrive on this team. Remember how most of Frazier's passes had to be dug out of the ground? It took someone as short as Abdul Muhammad to scoop most of those shoe lace passes. Remember a team commanded by him without 8 turnovers lost to a very bad Iowa State team.... If we were an option team sti
