Really?  So u were okay with the unsportsman call?  That was a horses#!t call, even after review

You cant hit a defenseless receiver. I dont like the rule, but if it were the other way around and they didnt call it, you would complaining even more

I'm sorry, that was a good call.  Reed had 3 friggin steps and a crush to the kids face to stop that.  You watch his head he actually follows the ball flying by him and continues on to smack the player who gave up on the play.

Okay, you're being a tad dramatic right now.

Yeah , you’re right, I admit it.

But dang it .. poor clock management was such a huge factor in this game.  

Live by up-tempo , die by up - tempo.  Not sure why they didn’t run the clock when they could have.  That was the difference .

This loss is about 3 turnovers, poor pass coverage, and one (or 3) bonehead penalties.

We’ll be fine. We just went toe to toe With a veteran team. This team looked pretty good. Did they make mistakes-yep but hopefully they will learn from them and come back strong next week. 

We need to chill and come off the edge of the cliff. This single game doesn’t define our team or our season.  GBR!

PlayStation football, if you want to call it that, is what the game is today.  Talent is better, but a ways off from being Big 10 contending talent.  This is a process folks.  Colorado is a decent team.  Hard team to play in game 1.  Should have, and could have won.  7-8 wins are still the real goal for this season.

I think going -3 in turnovers was the difference.

 

But yeah they were running tempo when it would have far more prudent to ground and pound and use the entire play clock.

It definitely sucks to lose the game.  I think it’s different if NU plays a game last week. But, that game didn’t get played so NU had some mistakes which were costly.

 

I liked a lot of what I saw, but there are definitely things to work on. The offense had 565 yards and had a dropped TD pass by a senior WR.  That TD would have put NU up by 8 entering the 4th quarter. The D played well at times, and got burned by a very good QB and WR a few times. The penalty on Reed was the right call, he just made a bad play.

 

Sometimes the hardest thing to do with a team that is used to losing is to get them to make the plays that win games. The team still has gaps in talent that will need to be fixed, as well.

I had fun.  The D played better then they have in years.  Gebbia should have stayed.  He might be on ESPN tonight for a 4th quarter win, rather then riding pine at OSU while tOSU ponded them.  Oh well.  Bunch will get that last throw on the news.

 

565 yards on offense.

Funny how we all been talking how amazing this recieving crew will be this year and I have to say I was not at all impressed. A lot of dropped balls out there. I can honestly say I was most impressed with our O and D lines. This was unexpected.

Not for it, but it is the rule and you have to follow it.  I don't agree with some speed limits and believe some stop signs could be yield signs but I still have to follow the rule or pay the consequences if I dont.

As bad as some of our rookie mistakes were, if Morgan or Spellman make either of those catched, we likely win.

"if's" we've had those for years, time to make it happen.  Morgan and Spielman shouldn't be dropping those balls, not at this level, both right in their hands.

Everybody bitching about the "clock management" has obviously never watched a UCF or Oregon game.  This is what they are, this is what Frost does.  He isn't going to change because a bunch of people think he should.  You get the whole package, and you don't get to just choose small pieces of it to support.  It isn't Frost's fault you chose not to research how he runs an offense.  That's on you.

 

Get behind this team or stop watching, posting, reading, and caring.

 

If Frost can't fix us, I don't think anybody can.  Game 1 vs a good team with a walk-on at QB.  You think those kids didn't let doubt creep in when they were down 14, and they came back.  That is progress.  Everybody has selective memory.  We straight up quit like little spoiled toddlers in our last 3 games last year.  Just quit.

 

That didn't happen, and we were on the 20 on the last play with a walk-on.  If somehow he catches that pass, or Spielman doesn't drop the 3rd down catch we would all be saying how great Frost is to win this game with a walk-on.

 

Unbelievable.  I thought we were all behind Frost.  Unity of purpose.  All you guys that thought this was going to be easy, you have no clue how you have to tear down and then build up a team when you take over.

So many mistakes. Morgan drops a TD, JD drops a game winning 1st down, DB unnecessary roughness that gave them the 1st down, we missed a makeable fg, Martinez is hurt, and this isn't all. To be honest, it's a wonder we were in the ballgame. Loss sucks but I'm not giving up on this team or Frost

Press conference is good.  He will coach to win.  He will be aggressive.  Thats how you build a winning formula.  Made the mistakes that kill a teams chances to win the game.  Turnovers will cost most teams.  Really good teams lose games with turnovers and penalties.  We had both in abundance.

At least we have a coach that obviously doesn't like losing.

There wasn't much he could do thanks to Gebbia leaving what 5 days before the first game.  We are stuck with what we have available.  If Martinez is out for a few games, we are pretty much done for this season other than letting kids get experience.  Nothing Frost could do about Gebbia leaving at one of the most inopportune times.

 

If Martinez is done for the year, the experience won't really matter. The difference between Bunch and Martinez is enormous. Not Bunch's fault, very few players can move like AM.

It's not just that, Bunch was not even D1 material, but he became that by walking on.  I love the kid but he wont lead us to much over teams like Michigan, OSU MSU etc.  AM is gone, we aren't making a bowl in my opinion.

Frost had a great press conference.  He's not happy, not terribly disappointed, just clean it up and get better.  Last year they got worse every game.  If we get better instead, we may not be great, but no longer a punching bag.

INDEED is totally correct.

Time to forget about the Callahan, Pelini, and Riley era's.  Throw those away.  

 

Move forward.  We just lost to a Power 5 team in week 1.  We just lost to a team that came in ready to play.  This was a big game to them, a RED letter game.  

 

Frost is the future of the program.  Game one comments are eerily similar to alot of games coached by those other guys named above.  We have room for improvement.  I expect to see major improvement from now until the next game.  

 

Get behind this team and its staff.  I think the coaching staff will make major adjustments going forward.

@In the Deed the Glory we all knew what Scott Frost's "system" was/is.

 

The point is just slow down.  You have a lead, the ball, and the smart strategy is to milk the damn clock.  This has nothing to do with Frost going outside of his system.  This has everything to do with playing smart.  There are times when slowing down and managing the clock are necessary.  This was one of those times and Frost didn't do it.

What a bunch of cry babies.  We wanted improvement.  We saw a team down by 14 almost instantly.  Did not quit, fought back.  Saw the leader of the team get hurt,  a few plays before the sandwich deal.  They still played hard.  Moved the ball with a walk on QB.  Last year, what would have happened, what would have happend with a Pelini lead team?  

 

It takes time, and we all promised to give him time if he came here.  Give him the time he needs.  He told us it would not happen isntantly.  Some failed to hear that.

 

Anyone that watched Colorado play last week, had to feel they would be in the game.  Blind Husker glasses seem to change reality on this board.  We all love this team, and yes a few of us still love the head coach.  Things will be better, they are better.

I agree that Frost should have slowed down a bit, but maybe the team and the players have to learn how to slow down things when needed.  That may not happen until the end of this year or next year.

When the best and most talented player on the field is a WR on the Colorado sideline, its speaks alot about where our talent is at this point.  Recruiting is so important.  We haven't had a great recruiting class in a while.  Shows on the field at times.  If we get max effort from this group, they are capable of winning 7-8 games this season with Amart.  Without Amart, I dn't know what is in store.

I think the talent still has a ways to improve. Good points. The D started to look gassed in the 2nd half and we don’t have a lot of depth at key positions.

Frost has to work on that discipline factor.  I saw multiple times players jawing with others after big plays and those can and possibly will be called penalties in the B1G(depends on the refs, ad we all know the B1G refs are the best</sacasm>).  We had a bunch of penalties throughout the game, we need to fix that. We need to fix the turnovers as well, currently we are exactly where we were under Riley and his first game -3.

When your team isn't loading on either side of the ball, you play to win the game.  If that means going down field with a pass, then thats what is going to happen.  Football is an up tempo game now.  Amart is going to be a great one.  I think our offense will just get better.  

Defense showed more guts, and they did make more tackles today than in recent years.  Work in progress.

 

Those who did listen to Frost in the early on set would have heard that there is alot of work to be done here to win games and win consistently.

Lamar Jackson was a letdown. He still played like he was under Diaco. Constant blown "coverage" and penalties.

 

I don't care that we lost. New coaching staff, and young team, whatever. We were never gonna be good this year anyway. But the fact that we had such an awesome first half then they actively tried to lose in the 4th quarter is biting. Colorado tried to lose too but we just tried harder.

You done circling me or we we going to continue talking in circles?

 

Nebraska had a 1 point lead.  Going slower to ensure a win, or at the minimum give your opponent as little time as possible, SHOULD have been is the approach.  Strategy when appropriate needs to override "system".

I agree that Frost needs to get the team disciplined, but that will be the next step. These kids were a broken team last year. Frost and the staff has them playing with passion and effort that I haven’t seen in some years at NU. The final step is learning how to play aggressive, fast, and smart, and learning how to win games.
