  1. D should always be ahead of the offense in the off-season imo
  2. That makes more sense. I forgot that some teams didn't update that (which is odd). Needs to be one way or the other imo so all teams on the same page.
  3. All teams had the same covid free year and still have many starting SRs. Iowa for example is slated to start 8 Seniors on defense alone this year....I agree we aren't inexperienced as it seems.
  4. Hardy, Grimes and Jones are on the chopping block for WRs. Smothers leaves if no PT this year (surprised he hasn't yet tbh). After CT is done I think the battle will be Purdy vs Haarberg.
  5. Crazy to think we will probably start only 5 total Seniors this year which is great if we have a good season looking into the near future. I also think we can trim up some of our skill positions for more lineman etc. We don't need 6 scholarship QBs next year. I wouldn't sign a RB this year given we have 6 scholarships there and don't graduate anyone.
  6. Hill impressed me with his HS film as a returner. Palmer of course as well
  7. I'd be surprised if this wasn't the 6 as of early on... 1. Palmer 2. Martin 3. Manning 4. Garcia-Castaneda 5. Washington 6. Brown
  8. I think Brewington can be a Kyler Reed type this year.
  9. Ameer was a little more compact muscles wise maybe but size doesn't always matter. Rahmir was actually a good blocker last year and can catch the ball very well. Does struggle a tad in between the tackles. I think he starts game 1 based off of experience and trust.
  10. The good news....my lord is Raiola better than Austin. Night n day
  11. I'll keep saying this is our best combo in years if we did it... Teddy Lutovsky Hixson Hutmacher (obvi can't now this year and he will still be a good DL, calm down) Corcoran
  12. You can't just dismiss field goals. If you can't move the ball in the red zone you resort to a FG...I think you made a point it wasn't as bad as it seemed but end of the day you were 71st in PPG. Year before 102nd. We haven't been a top 50 offense since Frost has been here. Nebraska was 20th in yards per game last year and 71st in scoring...can't just be due to 8/16 FGs.
  13. The run game was the main reason the offense couldn't do sh*t in the red zone. Outside of AM scrambles and runs the RB and OL were awful. Leading RB per game vs P5 teams: Illinois: Ervin 33 yards (2.8 ypc) Oklahoma: Johnson 42 yards (3.8 ypc) Michigan St: Johnson 76 yards (4.0 ypc) Northwestern: Yant 127 yards (9.8 ypc) W Michigan: Johnson 67 yards (3.9 ypc) Minnesota: Johnson 83 yards (7.5 ypc) Purdue: Yant 60 yards (10 ypc) AM 4 INTs Ohio St: Johnson 62 yards (3.9 ypc) Wisconsin: Belt: 31 yards (4.4 ypc) Iowa: Yant 44 yards (3.4 ypc) Only one time did a RB go for over 100 yards...and what do you know we won that game. Twice if you count Stepp vs Fordham.
  14. Stille and Daniels for Wynn and Drew. T Rob and Nash also a year older. I'd say we are fine... The bigger difference will be the Edge guys with Nelson, Mathis and Tannor.
  15. If Nash doesn't produce this year I will slap the staff for not switching him to the OL where he should have been day 1
  16. I like Whipple also because he's an older guy with experience. I always felt the staff was mostly younger coaches who were push-overs. The staff needed someone like Mickey and Whip to come in. I think things can start to click well going forward. Frost is still a good offensive mind.
  17. Players and some coaches have mentioned that we are basically using Whipple's passing schemes mixed with Frost's running schemes and verbiage. This shouldn't come as a surprise.
  18. He also was sour grapes when OC Matt Canada left years prior: “I had an offensive coordinator—I won’t even mention his name—at Pitt. He spent eight months with me, left to take one of those big jobs for $1.2 million. I said ‘I don’t think you want to go’ and he’s like ‘well, it’s a lot of money.’ And I got him a lot of money, I got him a million at our place, so it’s like, maybe he went for $1.5, I got him a million which is just crazy, like are you s#!tting me? You know like really? I don’t even think he was worth a million, I mean he wasn’t even that good.”
  19. I disagree on Oklahoma. I think we can win that game and the rumblings of us being back will start.
  20. If we don't start at least 4-2 then we are through. I think having a really hard 3 games to end the year is slightly more ideal this season as we need to get the kids to gel on offense.
  21. Nebraska has the biggest variance for floor and ceiling in the West. We could go 5-5 or 10-2. I know this isn't new info but we have A LOT of new pieces on this team. Whole new offensive coaching staff and play caller. Along with that we will have 10 new kids that will play a big part on this team. We know from the past that not all transfers will be good. Kool-aid is flowing
  22. I stood next to AM and he is no taller than 6'2. Thompson is only 6'0 but def has way more muscle than AM. Better mechanics and footwork as a QB which I think matters most when throwing the ball.
  23. I doubt NPG sees the field on defense. Honestly I expected him to hit the portal.
