He was accepted into a UNL graduate program and enrolled, ready to start classes this week.  He was going to be a walk-on.  But the coaches changed their minds and now he'll be going elsewhere.  Kansas State and Oklahoma State are possibilities.

Good to know we value morals as well as winning!

This may already be one of the best years for transfers as far as talent goes in a long time if not the best ever and the season just ended.

I'm Cutlass South Platte.

 

Or Cutlass Boulder if we're counting creeks instead of rivers.

If the ballpark is in Northern Colorado, you are correct.

This is where Heupel crumbles... Going for the next best thing, regardless of what he has.

 

Dont say Nebraska should be going for the next best thing, I agree. 

 

UCF is a built program right now.

 

Nebraska is still rebuilding.

 

You always have to pick your spots on the grad transfer market.

This might seem like a roundabout/long shot, but maybe see if you can get him in a room with James Palmer to talk about the cultural shift in going from Miami to Lincoln?

I don't see it that way at all - it's about making sure there's always competition. You can't count on Milton coming back quickly, and it looks the only other QBs are a true freshman and a couple walk-ons. Assuming Milton isn't a full go for a while, you at least want some competition for Mack through spring and fall camp. They got real thin a QB in a hurry, so as long as Mack doesn't take it personally I'm fully onboard and believe any coach would be looking for a transfer or juco in the same situation.

Without turning this into a UCF thread. Ill just say that they are in an identical situation that we are, and I dont see us looking for another juco/grad QB. 

But we can just agree to disagree

I honestly think that this was an excellent move by UCF. If they redshirt Milton this year or give him a medical redshirt, it will give him time to get fully healthy. Wimbush will keep UCF relevant and then Milton can come back the next year and keep the train rolling.

I definitely do! Comparing guys who are currently healthy:

 

Nebraska

1) Martinez - scholarship, 3 years remaining, stud

2) Vedral - scholarship, 3 years remaining

3)* Bunch - walk-on w/experience, 2 years remaining

4) McCaffrey - scholarship, 4 years remaining (5 w/redshirt)

* Bunch could leave before the year

 

UCF

1) Mack Jr. - scholarship, 3 years remaining, showed some flashes

2) Gabriel? - scholarship, 4 years remaining (5 w/redshirt)

3) Kingston- walk-on 1 game experience (no stats), 2 years remaining

4) Jones - walk-on no experience, 4 years remaining

 

Also worth pointing out the #2-4 guys for UCF would all slot behind McCaffrey, and you could argue Mack would slot around Bunch. We're better at the top (Martinez > Mack) and have more experience and talent in our depth. If you replaced Vedral and Bunch with less experienced walk-ons, we're in a roughly similar situation but I would still like McCaffrey more than Gabriel. Wimbush is only there for a year, so the chances of somebody transferring out are pretty low - he'll be gone by the time they could play for their new school.

Fine have it your way, I may also be showing some disdain for Heupel in general...

But in your comparison lets remember we are NEBRASKA.

Having better quarterbacks in general is something that should be a given.

I liked how Mack played when he had the chance and he would slot at or better than Vedral if we are being really unbiased. 

 

But I guess the point of this and any under lying emphasis I would like to further push is:

 

I want UCF to be good, I want Heupel to do bad.

Logic is there +1. Like I said before I believe Mack is enough to keep them relevant, but I guess they need some extra arms to keep healthy.

Still hate Heupel though!!!! infinite +1's

Hurts to Oklahoma

Wonder how prolific he can be in that offense. Seems like at Alabama, the offense wasn't anything to write home about until Tua came in. Hurts seemed like a game manager instead of a game breaker. Interesting to see how much of that was the style of play between programs and what is just his ability.

I have no doubt that he will be really good at Oklahoma. QB's who have transfered to Oklahoma have done pretty well recently.

Well obviously. But both Baker and Kyler could be considered “pass first” guys, where Hurts is more of a “run first”. Will probably still be good but I’m willing to bet he won’t be as good of a fit as the last 2 have been.

He might not be quite as good of a fit but I bet they see very little drop off with him at the helm.  I would also bet you will see him in the running for the Heisman there

I don’t get how we are in an identical situation. Martinez is a far better QB than Mack. UCF needed a QB a lot more than Nebraska does. Mack’s completion percentage was 51%.

UCF should not have a better QB than we do, never said they did.

In terms of eligibility, experience, and ability relative to the specific tier (conference) of football I would say we are close.

 

As far as the grad transfer bashing, I gave up the argument because I admitted to just not liking Heupel.

 

 

 

 

 

Still Hate Heupel!!!!!

The latter is irrelevant. You don’t bring in grad transfers to provide depth. You bring them in if you think they have a very good chance of starting. Therefore, UCF’s situation is not similar to Nebraska’s when it comes to QB and the argument for grad transfers.

You brought up the latter. 

Definitely bring someone in who could start----Don't think Wimbush is that great...btw

If we found a grad transfer QB who Frost thought was better I.E. Jalen hurts, are we in a similar situation then?

 

By similar situation I am talking about experience ability and eligibility as of now on the roster. 

Not if someone is better out there on the grad market.
