  1. Listening to one of the local radio stations the other day and they said our wide receivers have not improved since Scott Frost has arrived. Do you guys agree with this? With having such an elite wide receiver coach still living in Lincoln is there any way we can get Keith Williams back on the staff? I am also excluding Stanley Morgan and JD Spielman from this discussion since they are naturally gifted athletes.
  2. The day is upon us... If most of us are honest with ourselves, this feeling has been dormant for 3 years. The excitement, the passion, the anticipation, the nerves, the optimism, the pessimism, the wonder, the goosebumps and the cold tickle on the back of your neck when Nebraska begins their march towards the field for the first time in a year while 90,000 lose their collective minds. Yes we have endured some trying times. And many of us tried remaining calm as the fire engulfed what we once enjoyed. Today, August 31st 2018 is the last day of "The Calm". Tomorrow, is a new beginning. As fresh a start as a program of this caliber fallen on hard times can get. The hometown hero, the prodigy is officially home to right the wrongs and steer the ship back on course. A tall task for even the mightiest of men, but one met head on by what could truly be the next in a short list of whose who dynasty coaches. When Nebraska takes the field tomorrow night, lose your collective minds and get lost in the moment. Relish how good that feeling once again feels. Regardless of where you are, whether it be Memorial Stadium to your couch, remember those emotions that sweep over you. For those are once in a lifetime feelings. The obsession with college football, and the thrill we get from Nebraska playing aren't something to take lightly. Personally those feelings haven't been felt since the Fall of 2014. But tomorrow night the forecast reads "WARNING, FROST ADVISORY". Today is the last day of "The Calm", the final stage of being indifferent towards something we once felt perhaps overly passionate about. The future is here...
  3. Frost's last game as a Husker was T.O.'s last game as a coach. Heh. I knew that, but I guess I'd just forgotten.
  4. 17 college football moments that would’ve been even more amazing if Twitter had been around at the time Included is this: I thought this was a cool idea. What other Nebraska football moments would've been even more amazing if Twitter had been around at that time?
  5. I did a little research and it turns out that way back when, the Huskers were known as the Old Gold Knights. Fitting with Frost coaching his last game for the UCF Knights and returning to his old team. Could have made for a cool marketing campaign. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/1891_Nebraska_Old_Gold_Knights_football_team
  6. Which players in the 2017 class have to succeed at Nebraska in order for the class to be considered a success years down the road? This is more than simply ranking the players best to worst, though. Consider the implications of the player's position and recruiting location, and what it will mean to the team's future recruiting efforts if (for example) they pull a highly touted player from the coast but are unable to turn him into a high-caliber player. In no particular order, Avery Roberts, Tyjon Lindsey, and Guy Thomas stand out as players who I think are pretty critical to future success.
  7. The men's basketball team had their "secret" scrimmage against ISU today. Keeping in mind, this isn't exactly a real game as there are additional stoppages, substitutions, etc...ISU won by about 9. Here is the links to the information so far about it. One is from an ISU writer so it is about ISU, however it does give a few more details. http://journalstar.com/sports/huskers/mens-basketball/huskers-have-encouraging-scrimmage-at-iowa-state/article_64d1f47d-f764-5012-ab1d-6ad3526d55fe.html http://cyclonefanatic.com/forum/threads/updated-insider-iowa-state-beat-nebraska-by-9-today-details-here.223073/ FYI - the same ISU writer mentioned that the Nebraska women played ISU in Lincoln and Nebraska lost by over 20.

  10. I want this to be a serious thread for all questions relating to SF's future. What are the chances he does well at UCF? What are the chances he ends up at Nebraska? Can he recruit to a school that doesn't have the College of Nike Apparel appeal? Just wanted to hear other people's thoughts. Also, I'm currently a freshmen at UNL and was wondering if anyone else on HB is currently at UNL, or if it is all older fans that remember the good ol' days? I'd love to see the differences in opinions between generations. Oh, and GBR!
  11. He's had some good posts. http://www.knowitallfootball.com/2015/10/15/blackshirt-blog-hi-joe-husker-fan/ Sums up how I feel this season.
  12. 2015 Game 7 “Expert” Picks: Nebraska at Minnesota ————— CollegeFootballNews.com Why You Need To Care Nebraska might be four plays away from being 6-0, but it’s 2-4 – you are what your record is. This is turning into a historically awful start for a program looking to make this a special year after firing Bo Pelini for not being able to take the program to a whole other level – among other things. Lose this, then you’re talking about the worst start to a Husker season since going 1-9 in 1957. Win this, and with Northwestern up next and Iowa still to play, there’s still time to catch fire, go on a run, and yeah, actually win the West. Lose, and then Northwestern and Iowa look daunting, and facing Michigan State won’t help, either. Minnesota hasn’t been good, but it’s 4-2 and coming off a 41-13 blasting of Purdue. This isn’t anywhere near the same team compared to last year’s, and the season could fall off the map in a hurry with a loss. After this? Michigan, at Ohio State, at Iowa, Illinois, Wisconsin, and needing to win two of the last five against them with a loss this week. Why Nebraska Will Win Don’t let the Purdue game fool you – the Minnesota offense still isn’t working. Yes, the running game was great, and yes, Mitch Leidner was efficient and effective with the passing attack, but the Gophers are struggling to put points on the board against decent defenses. Nebraska has a decent defense. The Huskers might be 106th in the nation in total defense, and the secondary has been a hot mess, but Malik Collins and the run defense have been terrific. No one has run for more than 150 yards yet on the Husker D that’s allowing just over three yards per carry. Minnesota needs to run to win – that’s going to be a problem. Why Minnesota Will Win What the hell has happened to the Nebraska passing game? Even with the return of De’Mornay Pierson-El, and even with some decent targets to play around with, Tommy Armstrong has struggled. Playing the Illinois and Wisconsin defense have had something to do with it, but Armstrong has completed 21-of-59 passes for just 234 yards with a touchdown and a pick over the last two games. Minnesota’s secondary is rock solid, ranking 15th in the nation and ninth in pass efficiency defense – the Nebraska air show isn’t going to take off this week. Player Who Matters No one expected much out of Shannon Brooks. The 6-0, 206-pound Atlanta native came to Minnesota as just a recruit, without any fanfare, and he didn’t do much over the first three games. He started turning heads against Ohio with 82 yards and two scores on just ten carries, and last week he took over with 176 yards and a score on just 17 carries, highlighted by a 71-yard dash. He’s got the speed, and he has the running mate in fellow freshman Rodney Smith to help share the load. What’s Going To Happen? Is Nebraska going to finally catch a break and finally get over the hump, or is this just the way the team is going to roll this year? Nebraska is a far better team than Minnesota with a far better offense, but the Gopher defense is set up the right way to pull off the home win. Nebraska will once again figure out how to lose.

  13. Coach Riley wants to hire a Walk-on Coordinator. I personally think this is great. I think the key points this person should have would be: 1) Must have roots in Nebraska. This person needs to know what it’s like to grow up with the dream of playing in Memorial stadium. 2) Must have recruiting experience. Has to be able to convince the kids to give up a scholarship offer from other schools and walk on in Lincoln. 3) Must already have a good relationship with the Nebraska high school coaches (especially in Omaha and Lincoln). If the coaches are on board they can help convince the kids that Nebraska is the best place to be. I think we can lock down this state and make it hard for any outside schools to recruit here. What do you think about the key points? Ultimately I want to know who you think Coach Riley should look at. --- Sorry if there is already a discussion on this topic. I searched for it and could not find one.
  14. We all know Miles has 3 spots. Rumors being thrown around out there are that we might have a few hidden gems. Here are a few names that are being thrown around: Robin Washut ‏@RobinWashut 1h RT @AdamZagoria: Georgetown transfer Moses Ayegba is looking at LIU, Nebraska, Pepperdine, Indiana, Towson, Indiana St & Wichita State Robin Washut ‏@RobinWashut Apr 5 All signs are pointing to W. Illinois' Jim Molinari joining #Nebrasketball’s staff as its new assistant coach... ($) https://nebraska.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=1628459 … Samuel McKewon ‏@swmckewonOWH 1h Chiles will be in hot demand. Gets to the rim, can shoot the 3. I like Nebraska for Ayegba, presuming the #Huskers like him for them. JMO. @GoodmanESPN: IUPUI 5th-year transfer Ian Chiles looking at Va Tech, FSU, Iowa St, Tenn., Neb, Texas A&M, Mizzou, Auburn, others." So two names to follow: Ian Chiles and Moses Ayegba. Add some other names, but with the (possible)addition of Coach Molinari, we might have a chance at the Chicago area.
  15. Was surprised this hadn't been noted in here before now, but grats to the lady Huskers, 2013 regular season champs for womens soccer! Now on to the tourney championship and the NCAAs! What a turnaround for a team that had trouble finding its footing since Jenna Cooper's death. Good to see John Walker getting the ship righted!
  16. People who are angry about the current situation of Nebraska are right. 1. Bo Pelini is not Nebraska football. Nebraska football is much bigger than him. STOP bashing people who question his ability to make the Huskers successful. 2. Nebraska has just as much of a chance to become a dominating winner as any other school in the country. STOP saying Nebraska can't go back to the glory days. Heard a guy on the radio yesterday talking about Alabama before Nick Saban, and it sounded a lot like Nebraska now. Don't give up on the program. 3. Continue to show up to games, continue to buy Huskers gear, but don't let people tell you that you have to cheer no matter what. You don't celebrate something as awful as losing to Minnesota or getting undressed on national television by UCLA. 4. Dare to dream. The next hire at HC if Bo is gone could end up being another Billy C, or it could be the coach needed to put Nebraska on top.
  17. Hi guys, We finished our movie and in light of everything from the past few days it might be nice to see something positive about being a Cornhusker... We could use your help getting the word out about our film. Please share this link on your facebook page, twitter feed, and with any and all media sources. Not only did we spend over 2 and a half years making it but we put our blood, sweat and tears into this film. The link below has everything from the trailer, to where its sold, and it even has a link to an autographed ball that we are auctioning off for Team Jack. Thanks everyone and Go Big Red. http://bit.ly/137oOJ0
  18. Pretty cool that Roy Helu is now the starting running back in Washington: http://www.csnwashin...294&feedID=6355 He said he is still enjoying watching his first NFL TD run (and jump!)
  19. Hey guys, I made this music video to go along with our Documentary Film about Cornhusker fans that I will be releasing this fall. The song is about Coming home to Nebraska and the band who made it is from Lincoln and they did a stellar job. Please help me pass it around. Everything was either filmed in Nebraska or on our way home to Nebraska. And if you want more info on our film please visit the films website: www.huskersfilm.com. Thanks guys and I apologize for the shameless self promotion but I'm really proud of our project and I want everybody to know about it.
  20. There are numberous reports that Assistant Coach Ben Johnson is leaving to take the same position at Minnesota. He is a Minnesota native. Ryan James ‏@RyanJamesMN53m Ben Johnson expected to be the next coach named to the staff but its not official yet.That's been the buzz all week. It would be a good hire Nam Huynh ‏@n_huynh1h New #Gophers assistant Ben Johnson is A native of Minneapolis. 31 years old. Has bachelor's degree in sociology from Minnesota in 2005 Robin Washut ‏@RobinWashut1h Reports are #Nebrasketball assistant Ben Johnson has accepted position on Rich Pitino's staff at Minnesota, just waiting to be finalized. Provided this holds up, who do you suppose Miles will get to replace? Do we try and get Chin Coleman back? (As that is one of the reasons he left, he wanted to coach) Does Eric Strickland get his chance? Anyone else? Who could we get (realistically) Also, Johnson was the lead recruiter in Smith who has about a week before he can sign his LOI, should we be worried? I wouldn't think so as Minnesota has showed no interest in him thus far.
