  1. I've never seen Mack Brown mentioned which is surprising....not saying I want him but just curious why not. He is the same age as Saban. Currently 7-1 at UNC
  2. The longer we wait the more doubts it's Mickey right? If you are going to stick with him then you would announce for recruiting, NIL, transfer portal purposes. IF Trev wants it to be him then you can't wait to get trounced @ Michigan. The earlier the better IMO unless it is someone else then he will wait till day after Black Friday I would think.
  3. Whip's guy and he felt Smothers couldn't pass well enough. Little does he know Purdy is only good at scrambling. I hope Logan is the guy this week unless CT is ready.
  4. Allen was 1st team all B10 and broke the school record for receiving yards as tight end....he then landed the #1 TE in the nation. Voke is a solid TE imo as his blocking is good. Most people wanted Thompkins but couldn't get healthy. Newsome has been an above average CB here. Landed some local kids who deserved scholarships -- I've seen others leave the state. For a TE coach I think he has been good for us. If he isn't retained I don't think it's a major blow by any means but get realistic here.
  5. I wouldn't lose sleep if they were replaced.
  6. Applewhite and Busch I wouldn't count as Frost guys....Beckton has shown well in recruiting and TE production.
  7. Yes and yes. This doesn't mean that I would hate a few other options that are realistic, but if no home run hire then I don't see the issue with sticking with Mickey. He would take less money to leave room for higher paid assistants. We need OL and DL coaches like we never have before. I also want a proven DC - move Busch to db/safeties coach. Gimme an OC that has a run first mentality and a new S&C coach. I'm fine with keeping Applewhite, Busch and Beckton. Fisher and Ruud I wouldn't hate if kept as well. All others need the boot.
  8. I said since day 1 if we can't get Urban or Chris Petersen I would stick with Mickey if he is willing to get new coordinators and some assistants.
  9. I love how many fans are flavor of the week when it comes to coaching. It's truly astonishing to see. Right when Frost was fired....Aranda, Campbell, Leipold - these would be great hires! Now those coaches suck! After the Rutgers game. Mickey Joseph is our guy! Now no way we can offer him the HC job! We now need Klieman cause they just dismantled Okie St! etc. etc.
  10. Don't overlook PJ Fleck in all of this....
  11. Stadium, fans, tradition, facilities for starters. Ames also has a small block of college bars on Welch Ave and that's it. Lincoln has way more stuff going on than Ames. Iowa St 9/10 will lose out to Iowa on in-state recruits as well based mainly on the things I said prior. Nebraska though small doesn't share with any other FBS football teams...heck even UNI will get a few overlooked kids now and then. Lincoln is almost 5x larger than Ames.
  12. I never said Campbell is my first choice either but clearly no one here has been to Ames, IA....good luck winning football games there. He has done a great job IMO
  13. In 125 years of football at Iowa St Campbell has 3/5 most winnings season there...in 6 years of being there.
  14. When Nebraska has been good...Run the ball. Play defense
  15. 2023 @ Colorado ....is this game for sure Sep 9th next year? I see a few conflicting schedules out there. 

    1. Mavric


      That's what it says on Huskers.com, so I would think that's still the story.


      Colorado has them playing TCU on the 2nd, us on the 9th and Colorado State on the 16th.  

  16. There would be a big overhaul of coaches and players - just the way the game is today. Thompson, Grant, Palmer, Vokolek will all be gone...defense basically returns everyone but the talent isn't there for most of them.
  17. Purdue threw 54x and we got 0 sacks
  18. I always felt if we didn't get Meyer just stick with Mickey...he would do the gig for half the price which gives him full go on getting the best assistants in the conference. Kids like him a lot & he can recruit. Quit pu&&yfooting and paying half a$$ assistants. Go pay a DC $2m/year. Get the best OL/DL coach. Mick and the rest can get the athletes. Wins will come.
  19. If we had a competent DC we would be 5-1 with this schedule regardless if Frost was HC or not.... Mickey is a no BS coach that is a good recruiter. I think he can work with good coordinators.
  20. Lance Leipold is a Wiscosnin native and did well at the DII level there...
  21. I agree here...I think if you get Urban we could take off. Even if Mickey I think if he hired great assistants we could recruit well enough --development idk. I also think adding teams to the West of us only helps Nebraska IMO.
  22. Nebraska has the FEWEST 4 & 5 star recruits in their 500 mile radius. Dead last in the P5. 65/65 So to me you really believe we can get a big name recruiter and get kids over the country with NIL, portal, etc. OR You dumb down the offense. Get a few great players with a coach who develops players. Run the ball. Play gritty defense.
  23. Chins was an obvious fire...I'd be surprised if Mickey fires anyone else.
  24. Is there a reason that Singleton hasn't seen the field? K Williams? Bretz?
