  1. How should the Blackshirts be distributed throughout the season? Do you have to play a perfect game? Can you lose them if the defense plays poorly as a whole? In my opinion, I like how the staff is handling it. If you get them, you have to earn them every week. If we give up 40 points, everyone should lose em. Hopefully guys would give them back to show that they dont deserve them when that stuff happens. What are your thoughts?
  2. ...IDK about you other fellow husker fans but this assistant has me the most excited..if you watched game play of Our linebackers, rewind, watch, rewind and watch..you picked up on a never ending theme..they were always, well, more oft than nought, out of theor position...if you remember player Rudd, he was always in positions..if he knows anything, he knows all about teaching our backers to be in the correct spot on a given defensive play.. i suppose i need need to change my handle..I’m no longer “depressed”..this is first time since perhaps early 2001 football season, I’ve had h
  3. ..the LJS and OWH select reporters have been covering football for years, some a decade now, I wonder why Mark Phillip is being glossed over.. ...just one object example is Our O Line...perhaps 40% body fat..? virtually NO core (butt, thigh ) power and absolutely unacceptable upper body strength...and why in the world are senior lineman on the pine and young weak players starting..? It appears in Division 1 Big ten football, it take 4 years to build, physically, a offensive and defensive lineman powerful enough to compete..Rfreshm and sophomore starters all over the place..? The w
  4. ...I suppose today should give ample evidence of a failed organizational leader, Mr Reilly and his methodology/approach to the game..the next coach must build his offensive around the focus of building a rushing based offensive system and stop recruiting these pass blocking profile body types...that have no no core power to go forward, only backwards in pass protection..and have insanely slow footwork..and go back to recruiting the passed over smaller, squatty type lineman that come from hard nosed, rushing offensive HS programs that can go FORWARDS...
  5. I found the below poll on an Omaha.com article about Diaco's defense, his approach and its impact on the team. I'm interested to see what Huskerboard thinks in our own poll and if we are in any way correlated with a larger, more generic pool of Husker voters. This is particularly relevant as we've recently had the validity of Huskerboard polls called entirely into question. Here's the article, for those interested. So far, this poll has 909 voting yes and 303 voting no.
  6. Would like to know how former players feel about the current Nebraska Football Program?
  7. So, it seems hard to understand, but defensively we actually regressed this week. Last week we were 108/128 in total defense. Now we are 110/128. Our pass defense remains worst in the NCAA at 128/128 and more than 150 yards higher than #127 Bowling Green... this is a level of bad that is frankly almost unbelievable. I don't think our players are that bad... I think the coaching and schemes are just really bad. Our rush defense got slightly worse but it is clear that it is being helped by the fact that everyone is throwing on us a LOT. On the plus side, Minnesota's offense #8
  8. Pass attempts Looking back at the 2013 regular season, which we can all agree was largely disappointing, I've decided to take a look to see just where things went wrong in our wins and losses. Let's start with pass attempts. Was Beck philosophically different during our wins and during our losses. In our wins, we averaged about 28.5 passes per game whereas in our losses we averaged about 33.5 passes per game. Now, the argument that can be made that we had to pass more because we were behind and you need to preserve clock if you are to come back. The running game doesn't preserve clock, so
  9. I hadn't seen this brought up yet, but I wanted to point out the play of LeRoy Alexander. He's a RS Freshman and has been seeing a lot of playing time at safety lately. His stats haven't been overwhelming, but it seems like each game he makes a couple of really nice plays. Against PSU, he was the only person on the field that actually decided to defend the jet sweep and kept it to a 5 yrd gain when it could have went a lot further. He also layed a HUGE hit on Zwinack, late in the game. Who knows what next year holds, but I could see him almost taking Ciante's spot in that hybrid positi
  10. Does anyone know at what point in the game did the coaches ask the defensive players what scheme they wanted to run? It appears that something happened to drastically improve the defense. Was that "something" getting input from the players? It is an intriguing question for a couple of reasons. One of those is that nagging feeling that we've got better quality defensive players than is reflected in the scoring against us this and past seasons. Another is the knowledge that using "our" plans or scheme generally give better results than playing with "your" scheme. I remember that Dr. T ha
  11. I like how he is stressing the attitude of the defense, the killer instinct, urgency - and its tremendous lacking. I know it's a post game conference, but, I'm glad to hear something other than just 'execution' or 'process'. He's right, the attitude is totally off. And I hope he does focus on that. "Getting off blocks" was the first thing he said, but then he went on a pretty intense rant about attitude. If he can be so open about the problem, I hope he can produce clear results. Thoughts?
  12. Go ahead and delete this if I'm repeating someone else here, Mods, but can someone explain to me why we didn't use a timeout in the 3rd quarter? You all know as well as I do that Bo Pelini is NOTORIOUS for using timeouts on defense. He's done this since he got here, to the point where you want to tear your hair out sometimes. Here is the scenario: We lose some steam going into halftime, but still lead 21-10 AND we get the ball to start the 2nd half. Taylor misses a clear opportunity to run the ball on 3rd down to get some points on the first drive. Punt. UCLA TD - 8:21 le
  13. Here is a little something to chew on for all the Pelini apologists. I was once one of them, but facts are facts and I've only seen a stubborn man cling to a scheme that worked against the spread only when he had a once in a lifetime DT named Suh. Cosgrove doesn't look so bad now does he? FML.
  14. It's no mystery that our defense is young. Youth brings with it inexperience. Inexperience results in a lower level of performance than someone who has a lot of experience with the subject matter. For example, you're not going to be able to perform high level calculus as well as someone who has been doing calculus for years. Applying the learning curve to our situation allows (me, at least) to make sense of our defensive performance against Wyoming on Saturday night. We are a young defense, most of those players have not had any actual game reps versus a different opponent than the first
  15. Here's an interesting stat/quote from an article that Hailvarsity.com wrote on Wednesday: http://hailvarsity.c...fending-denard/ It's crazy how you can count on one hand how many times the defense has given up a first down when it's 3rd and long. Of course the don't have other stats like how the defense is doing on 1st and 2nd downs, but they have been winning the majority of 3rd downs. I'm also surprised that this wasn't brought up before now.
  16. Lots of talk about the defense this week. Biggest area of concern on the team? I think that's fair to say after that offensive onslaught against what should have been, at the very least, a well-coached (if not overly experienced) defense. Much has been made of Nebraska only giving up 260 yards to the Golden Eagles. While that number is respectably low (Charlie McBride's benchmark was 250 yards made for a good performance), what should give us some pause is the manner in which they got those 260 yards. Southern Miss ran 66 plays - 17 of which went for 8 or more yards, or 25% of the
  17. Huskers' defensive growth to get early test By Brian Bennett | ESPN.com http://espn.go.com/b...be-tested-early
  18. I just finished this book last weekend. Anyone else read it? It's from the guy who runs smartfooball.com, and I would highly recommend it. It's somewhat short, but it helped me understand some stuff I never really knew. He goes into detail about the stuff like match-zone coverages we use, and discusses the "get open" WR routes Beck installed (it's from the run-n-shoot). I've also spent quite a bit of time at his website over the summer, and it's a really cool site if you're into X's and O's. Website is here: www.smartfootball.com Book is here.
  19. There needs to be some changes made. I am willing to give the defense a chance to develop with the new DC, but that should not take that long since he has already been on board. The secondary didn't do that bad of a job on coverage, this is probably one of the better coverage secondaries that Nebraska has had. The defensive line needs improvement, not enough pressure on the QB. The Offense is another story...if Bo don't get some changes on the coaching staff, this team will never even be a top 5 contender. The offensive line stunk in the 2nd half. No doubt about it. It has done very lit
