  1. For the next several weeks we'll be nominating and voting for positions on the HuskerBoard Starting Lineup, your chance to tell folks how much fun you've had talking football with them over the last year. Maybe it's someone whose opinions most closely match your own, maybe it's someone whose point of view couldn't be further from yours - but whatever the reason, same opinion or different, they're someone whose input you look forward to every time you come to the board. A brief "how it works" for those new to this thing: Each Monday we'll open nominations for several positions. You nominate OR second (one or the other, per position) someone for a spot on the team. Once the nomination period is closed the voting starts, and at the end of the week the top vote-getter(s) get their position. Nominations close on Wednesday, and Thursday every week voting begins. The basic ground-rules: Each person may nominate OR second one member per position. You may not nominate a person and second another person in the same thread. Each position will be open for nominations for three days - Monday through Wednesday. To be considered for the position a member must be nominated and seconded. You may nominate or second only one person per position. A person may hold only one position. The voting period for each position lasts four days, and runs Thursday - Sunday. Mods & Admins are not eligible for positions. Please don't nominate them. Members who have retired from the Starting Lineup will not be eligible for positions. Please don't nominate them. Banned members are not eligible for positions. Please don't nominate them. A person may not hold the same position they held last year. They may be on the team again, but if so they'll have to be in a new position. We're doing this to keep the Starting Lineup fresh and fun, and because there are a LOT of folks who could hold these positions. Please, no self-nominations. Campaigning for a position is allowed in the designated Campaigning Thread only. Any campaigning found outside that thread, whether in Status Updates, sigs, whatever, will be met with swift, harsh and unforgiving discipline (you'll be forced to wear a Colorado Buffaloes avatar for a month). We're always open to new ideas so let us know what you think so we can laugh at you consider your proposal. Have fun and good luck!
  2. Think you deserve a spot but are getting overlooked? Want to drum up support for your nominee? Here's the place - the ONLY place.

  5. knapplc has decided to step aside from running the Starting Lineup so I'll try to perform admirably in his stead. Most of the setup will remain the same and most of the following posts concerning the setup are shamelessly stolen from knapplc's previous work. I think I'll tweak the schedule a bit - just trying to find the right balance. But mostly things will be status quo. However, this is the Discussion Thread and we're always looking for new ideas. So if you have one, let us know here. That way we can ridicule your ideas publicly. Or, on an outside chance, actually use one of them.

  6. Will army_allen finally get his first spot in the lineup after 3 years trying? Find out next time on dragonball z!
  7. Wide Receiver: Fast - This guy has blazing speed and can burn any cornerback that stands in his way. Replies to messages and questions come from this poster at an alarming rate! Able to outrun any Georgia DB for a 99-yard TD when the team's backs are against the wall. Good Hands - When a pass is thrown his way, he always catches the pass where the defenders can't knock it away. Very rarely drops the ball when his vision isn't impaired. So, this poster backs up his content with documented info and normally answers the question very well. If you need someone in that end zone to clutch the Hail Mary, this is your guy. Route Runner - Slants, posts, and hook routes are this player's forte. Using these routes, this poster always finds the soft spot of a zone or gets good separation from tight coverage. This guy has a different "slant" on many topics, "posts" a lot of interesting information, and "hooks" you with his witticism and knowledge. Wily/Crafty - A student of the game. Recognizes patterns and coverage (knows the topics he's commenting on and the other people in the particular debate). Tends to use his skill to get away with things, isn't afraid to fight with the defense. A Maurice Purify type. VOTING CLOSES JANUARY 24
  8. Quarterback: Leader - A take charge kind of guy. He starts a majority of the threads here on the board, being a topic starter. Cannon Arm – The QB has a blast visiting HuskerBoard daily. He has an powerful way with posts (shooting at lot of posts at us daily). Offensive Minded - He makes the offense offensive. He may correct you to his way of thinking. Some of his remarks may offend you but he makes you dish it out like he dished on you. Great Size - The ideal "pocket passer" QB should have great size - 6'2" to 6' 5". This gives them the ability to see over the line and take big hits from defenders. Therefore, this poster should have a good volume of posts. We're not looking for ones that say "I agree" or "That's funny" though... These posts should all have good quality and stand above all other "defenders." Field Vision - He has to see what the defense is giving him and make the best of the situation. That means our QB reads pretty much all of the posts and gives what he feels to be the best answer/comment to the question - and many times it is the most noteworthy comment of the thread. Scrambling Ability - The QB should be able to "scramble when flushed out of the pocket" by an odd question. This poster can quickly answer the question posed from his own knowledge of Husker football or experience. VOTING CLOSES JANUARY 24
  9. Running Back: Not afraid to take hits - hits the holes hard and fast and dishes out just as well as he receives. Very consistent - This person gives good information on a constant basis and is dependable when opinions are needed. this person states his viewpoints and does not waver from them. Competitor - Even after fumbling (giving bad advice), this guy will always come back at you the next time with his best. Never afraid of the opposing linebacker (critic), will carry the ball until the cows come home. An "inside runner" - When the holes are made for him, he has to fly through with a quick step. This poster is able to find the inside information, then quickly divulge it to HuskerBoard so we can all "gain yardage!" Ability to "bounce it to the outside" - When the hole isn't there, this guy can use his lateral thinking skills (and lateral movement) to tiptoe the sidelines for a good gain. Catching out of the backfield - When a fellow poster (or his QB) gets in trouble in a topic, the RB has to be able to and bail him out. Short dumpoffs, designed draws, and screens should be easily fielded by this poster. Picking up the blitz - Handles several topics/Mocks/debates/etc... while always prioritizing correctly (reply to a topic first, then worry about debating on the Heisman winner or best college mascot). Reliable - Can be counted on to show up and play hard every week. Won't cough up the ball when taking a hard hit. VOTING CLOSES JANUARY 24

  13. Head Coach: Teacher - You have come to learn from this guy on a regular basis. He has expert knowledge of Husker football. He is always helpful and willing to help you out with something you need, whether on the boards or PMs...especially newcomers. Play Caller - This guy “runs the show” in his mind. You often see him on HuskerBoard organizing several "audibles" at any given time in a heated topic of discussion. He’s been known to get some of his preseason predictions right, and his knowledge of Husker football is second to none. He often sways the opinions of the majority in a discussion thread. Worldly Knowledge - Even though some coaches use a "cheat sheet" with all the plays on them, our Head Coach doesn't need them. This member is active in numerous areas of HuskerBoard, offering insights on various topics already posted, and keeping HuskerBoard informed of breaking news or important subjects. Because of the crucial nature of this position, this member should be a veteran of many years at HuskerBoard. Voting Closes January 17th
  14. Defensive Coordinator: Defensive mind - This guy is all about keeping people out of the end zone. It's his job to find the correct personnel for each situation and keep the offense from finding a hole or seam to advance the ball. So, when posting on HuskerBoard, this member employs the best info and stats available to defend his arguments from being shot down by others. Knows when to blitz - Sometimes an opponent is in a situation where a blitz will almost surely create a forced throw, a turnover, or a big loss. This poster brings the heat by quickly posting a counter argument to a weak or disjointed post. It almost always squashes the opposing viewpoint before posters can even bother to post against it...therefore many times it's not even necessary to pile it on! Experience - Just like an offensive coordinator, the DC is normally an old defensive player or coached linebackers, the secondary, or the defensive line for several years. We're looking for a veteran poster who has been able to defend HuskerBoard's honor in many ways during his years here. Voting Closes January 17th
  15. Offensive Coordinator: Relayer - "The OC" (as he may be called) has to hand down the offensive play call from the Head Coach for it to be implemented in the game. So, this poster is someone who likes to give out new breaking stories or updates to players & coaches, and does it very often. Tactician - The Offensive Coordinator has to sense weaknesses in a defense throughout the whole game and can sense changes quickly enough to call a play that will exploit the opponent. In HuskerBoard-land, this poster is able to find flaws in weaker arguments and rebut it with the most pertinent facts and stats to gain himself "yardage" in the thread. Student of the game - Offensive Coordinators normally start out as a coach in another capacity on a team or several teams, such as QB or WR coach. They can teach the players on the field and call the plays during the game. So, I would have to say there's a lot of experience that must be gained to take this position. Therefore, this poster should be a veteran of the site who has been here long enough to understand the ins and outs of the "offense" in the form of posts and threads. Voting Closes January 17th

  19. Tight End: 1) Durability - Not one to let the time of year or the game influence his play. Just as strong with the posts in March as in October. 2) Knows what's needed - That ability to look around, know where the first down marker is, sit in coverage and convert. Nothing flashy but keeps the posts moving along. 3) Safety valve - Knows that he is often the check-down receiver or the guy the QB looks for in a blitz package. A Mike McNeil type who establishes a reputation in forums and it's assumed he'll fill the role. 4) Downfield blocker - Can move faster than lineman, is usually bigger than a blocking back, and so helps the really big running plays by sealing the corner or flattening a member of the opposing secondary. Versatility with what's said on occasion. 5) Good "Liar" - The TE can act like he's blocking for the run but then quickly releases to become a pass catcher - especially on the fake dive/throw to the TE play at the goal line. That's one of my favorite plays! So, this guy might not always know exactly what he's talking about, but he knows enough to still score points with the members of HuskerBoard.
  20. Offensive Tackle: 1) QB Protection - The left OT has to be the best athlete on the line. As most QB's are right handed, their blind side is the left side. Since the best rushing DT is normally coming from the blind side, the left OT has to use finesse to keep him away from the QB - many times with no help from the TE! So, this poster should be very active, be able to have his ideas stand alone from others, and has the flare to his posts that keep the members happy! 2) Physicality - For a right OT, physical strength is important because most offenses run over the right side of the line. The OT needs to create the outside lane for a RB on a standard run play (In the immortal words of Vince Lombardi at the blackboard: "What we need is a seam here," etc...). This poster comes strong with his ideas and creates a lane for others to make a topic grow and grow. 3) Big guys with foot speed - Just as with an OG, the tackle should have a big presence on the line. At the same time, this giant should possess the ability to use his feet to gain leverage on an opposing defender. Basically, they can run through those rope squares really fast! I would say the ideal OT should be a poster that has big ideas in one message (that take a lot of space!) but still has the speed to contribute to as many forums as he can.
  21. Offensive Guard: 1) Big - Offensive lineman are probably the largest players on the field - they are normally about 320 pounds!!! They stuff up the line as best as they can to keep the QB safe and able to pass. I would therefore say this poster should be one who is "long-winded" and likes to write a lot on any particular subject. One sentence answers aren't this guy's modus operandi - this poster likes to get all the ideas out of his head on every reply he makes. 2) Pulling ability - We've all heard of the "pulling guard!" On the snap, this guy can laterally move behind his other line mates to create a running lane on the other side of the field - especially on sweeps and "counter trey" misdirection plays. The nominee likes to try to use his wit and cleverness to "pull" an argument to his side of the field. He'll also "counter" once in a while in order to create an pro-con scenario. 3) Leverage - The Offensive Guard needs to use good leverage to keep the opposing tackles or ends from getting around them. It's all about "staying low" and "getting dirty" - you know, hands under the armpits once in a while! He might not always be the first person in a conversation (lower in the order for good positioning!), but he knows what he's talking about and likes to add his two cents to get into the conversation (in the trenches)! 4) "Right" (or Left) Hand Man: The guard, who plays, next to the Center and QB, is in charge of all the inside plays. He has to work well with the rest of the offense. He is in on every play, but doesn't always get the credit or make the big play. But he is there regardless. He is always posting, but his posts may not be the most glamorous, but they are there and have a role.
  22. Center: 1) Snapper - This guy gets his hands on the ball on every play. His job is simple: to get the football from the grass (or turf) into the hands of the QB without causing a fumble. On shotgun plays, the center has to deliver the ball on target and at a waist-high level as to give the QB time to find his receivers. As a HuskerBoard center, the poster should either start many, many topics because he "touches the ball first." When posting from a "shotgun" format (well after a topic is started), he should give the starter of a topic a nice straightforward answer/comment as to further the point stated. 2) Blocking ability - On any type of screen play, the center needs to get off of the line and help create a "mini-wedge" for the receiver. At the same time, he has to make sure he doesn't go past the line of scrimmage before the screen goes into effect! I would say the ideal Huskerboard center likes to help out the arguments of posters and keeps himself restrained - meaning he doesn't go way off base with his comments. 3) Intelligence - In many football games you may see the center pointing out defensive alignments to the QB and his linemates before he gets into snapping position. The center has to anticipate what the defense is doing and relay it to his team. The football knowledge of this poster should be quite vast, and his ability to point out the strengths/weaknesses of other's posts should be quickly ascertained. 4) Underrated - This poster does a lot in helping HuskerBoard but doesn't always get recognized for their help.
