  1. The reason we have lost the last 2 games is because NOBODY started the Prayer Thread before the games.

      the trolls are going to vomit all over that thread 

  2. Husker basketball sucks worse than Husker Football.  Maybe Frost and Hoiberg need to quit having beers together.

      will the basketball team get as many conference wins as the football team did?

  3. The NFL is a complete joke.  Tired of the bulls#!t penalties.

      IMO that's a problem with football in general... too many penalties and too many opportunities for results to change based on those penalties.

       

      I still watch the hell out of the sport but I think it's a valid concern with the sport.

      The blind side block penalty in the Denver KC game last night was total BS.  Yes, it was a hard block.  But, the guy was in a position that he could have made a tackle if not blocked.  And, the blocker blocked came from the front and blocked him in the chest.

       

      Not sure how that's a blind side block.  That's the situation that's a problem with many of these penalties.

      I was watching the Raiders and Washington game and Crosby for the Raiders hit the QB right as he threw and tackled him to the ground.  They called a roughing the passer because he fell on the QB.  Complete BS.  

  4. Southlake RB Owen Allen reminds me of Rex Burkhead. Tough runner that can make you miss and pick up yards.

      He really does resemble Rex. I'm surprised we haven't offered.

  5. Looks like we will average .8600 for star rating this year.  Killing it with the 3*s

      Tough crowd.  Star rankings can be taken with a grain of salt most years and this years rankings are probably more off than your typical year.

      I am sort of with you on this one, this looks like a really good MAC type class at the moment.  Either they suck at recruiting or Frost knows he has all the time in the world to get these guys ready as juniors and seniors.

      @JJ Husker I tried changing a setting on your account.  Did that change anything?

      There is a function on your address bar with the two “A’s,” one is smaller font than the other. Tap that and It’ll have an option to request desktop or mobile. With that said, it still doesn’t prevent the pages from breaking

      @Mavric Nothing is changed.

      @Savage Husker the Aa only gives me font settings, no option for desktop.

  7. Matt Campbell should be National Coach of the Year.

      He keeps having success like he is and he will be able to have any job he wants.  The guy can flat out coach.

      The big Oline players, Big fast WRs, Big fast LBs, the Best QBs in the South and West Coast are all getting paid.  The best talent and biggest body players don't just go anywhere.  The South pays the best (to the family).  It's not super rich money, but it is good enough money.  The S&C is available everywhere. 

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      My bad. Yes, we could afford any S&C guy we wanted and we could more than likely sign them for the correct amount. 
       

      I maybe don’t pay close enough attention but I’m not yet convinced Duval isn’t doing a pretty good job. He inherited marshmallows and it seems has made some decent  progress. I don’t feel like Iowa and some of the others pushed us around as much this year as in the past.

    4. Stumpy1

      Stumpy1

      I have voiced my opinion about Duval and think we can/could do better.  Our players are getting stronger but their flexibility and quickness aren't being worked on enough IMO.  We look way to stiff and slow out there, especially on the OL.  

  10. OU's offense is fun to watch.

      I'm torn on this one. I can't root for OU, but I can't root for UF, either.

    3. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      Their players look way different than ours. They're either getting first pick on the playground and/or they're doing something more after they pick them. Same with Bama, Clemson, tOSU and a few others. There's a lot of teams we just can't compete with unless things drastically change.

    4. Decked

      Decked

      That’s literally everyone but the top 5-6 teams in the country lol. Don’t get me wrong though we are especially bad. But yes. The talent difference is drastic. I think it may even out more if the playoff goes to a 6 or 8 team system. Maybe. 

  11. Man...Bama Wr with a Kenny Bell tackle on Florida safety.  

    1. Decoy73

      Most "targeting" penalties I saw this year were less severe than that was.  Brutal hit.

  12. Wisky is gonna be scary good.  

    1. teachercd

      teachercd

      Ehhhh, they rushed for 3.4 yards per carry...Illinois is hot garbage.  

  13. Look at Oregon running all those trick plays. 

    1. 4skers89

      4skers89

      LOL.  Herbert has a better mastery of trick plays than McCaffrey, IMO.  But seriously, watching the speed the players from both teams play makes me think our players are going at about 80%.  I don't know if it's a lack of depth or something else but it seems like we play at a 800m pace instead of a sprint.

    2. teachercd

      teachercd

      Well...one team looks fast.

    3. 4skers89

      4skers89

      IDK, the Utes were flying around on defense.  They are kind of getting embarrassed though.

  14. Burrows putting on a show.  What could have been...sigh!!!!

      At the time, maybe not Martinez, but probably better than Gebbia.

      You could argue that Martinez was better than Burrows last year (obviously that's changed significantly this year).

    4. jaws

      It is amazing what solid coaching and play calling can do for a player.

       

      Also, I don't remember him really being open to transferring to Nebraska. I think Frost had a quote about it as well...something along the lines, "You think he is better than what we got?". I do know that Cincinnati was in play. 

       

      If Burrow doesn't get hurt at OSU and goes in the Michigan game instead of Haskins his sophomore year, I think Burrow would still be OSU's QB.  What a crazy sequence of events that has lead us to this point. 

  15. We have ZERO players that would start for LSU or Bama.  Those guys are on a way different level.

      Also. I was telling my buddy today. Oregon recruits at a high level now and I don't think THEY are even close to elite level yet either.

       

      The top 4 teams are SO far ahead of everyone else.

    3. Stumpy1

      Stumpy1

      Yep...they have WRs and RBs that are bigger then our OLBs and can out run them like no other also.  

    4. JJ Husker

      JJ Husker

      It is pretty discouraging watching what the athletes on most other teams can do. I mean Iowa friggin State (and many other non powerhouses) make our guys look inept. And don't get me started on kickers...wth happened to us that we can't even punt or kick?

  16. Steve Taylor dropping bombs.  Doesn't understand the love affair for Martinez when it comes to Frost.

      Mccaffery needs to be the qb next year.  Martinez can go play for Fresno st he is a bum

      "Bum"

       

      OK.

       

      This is the guy who led all Freshmen in all purpose yards in the Big Ten last year.

       

      Sure.

       

      "Bum"

    4. onlyHskrfaninIL

      onlyHskrfaninIL

      he's not the same guy from last year for whatever reason.  to me, he is mitch trubisky.  he is a guy that has decided to be more of a QB and play from the pocket.  both of those versions of those guys are bums, yes.

  17. Prepare for the Luke McCaffery show!!!

      New Glarus has a few other worthwhile brews in addition to Spotted Cow. I'd be surprised if they haven't migrated into Minnesota.

       

      But guise.....he wants "good" beer like Busch and Miller :lol:
