Have you played football before? If a team pounds you so much like Minnesota has tonight for the amount of yards they have on the ground, that wears you out. You get tired of running, tired of tackling. You start half adding it which results in even bigger defensive breakdowns. Give me a break.

Oh quit with  that crap, they weren’t playing with any fire or desire from the opening snap. They weren’t ready.   Did Minnesota come in the locker room and pound on them all day long before the opening kickoff. 

 

And by by the way, how would they be tired from tackling?

I'm afraid a pass heavy offense isn't going to work in the Big Ten in the cold and crappy conditions. This teams needs to be able to consistently run the ball or forget it. 

We’re pretty balanced run/pass, but I worry about the reliance on big plays. If you don’t recruit top 10, you better figure out how to grind out drives and control the clock. Oh and play defense.

We look so soft and pathetic

 

 

Whomever the QB is, doesn't even try to read route progressions...our OL is a bunch of dudes who think they are big but just a bunch of pussies...D plays like a bunch if guys who think just getting "hyped" is going to make a play.

 

Flat out just a bunch of puss and mud

Wisconsin is going to absolutely maul us

 

That's a given. I'm more concerned about Indiana, Purdue, and Maryland. We may not win another game if we keep playing like this.

Game results would show this is not the case. They get WAY more up to play us than we get to play them.

 

They are defending their conference. We're still the outsiders.

Well, those game results may well be the result of the better team winning most of the time. Maybe neighboring Iowa gets way up. But after 9 years of not doing much in this conference and no conference championship in 20 years, I don't think any of the B1G teams think of Nebraska as ever having been a blue blood.

I wonder what my 18 year-old self (who was at every home game in 1995) woulda thought if I told him this is how it was gonna be....

 

 

 

I'm a few years older than yourself and had I been told this was how it was going to be, my first thought would have been to demand to know who killed the program.  The roots of this entire program were poisoned and they grew deformed over time.  Moos was the start of correcting that systemic deformity and now Frost is a part of the recovery.  You can't fix a program in a season or two.  You can't undo two decades of rot with a few coaching choices an some intense practice sessions.  This is going to take time.  Lots and lots of time.  It sucks we have to watch but this is going to be a very painful process and there are worse things to come later down the road.  But it had to happen some time.

This will all change in 2 more seasons.  We need at least 2 more recruiting seasons to gain some momentum.  Until then, temper the expectations.  We just don't have the horses yet.  Why burn redshirts for winning the West side of the West division.  Win 2 more games, make a bowl game, and then build on that for the next season.

I disagree. You are here to win games and build a winning culture. Reward young guys with spots if they can play and help win games and the rest will fall into place. Get your most talented guys experience.

No, they don't. But they hear people talking about us as a blue blood all the time, and they don't like it, so they like to take it out on us.

Do you know what fatigue is?
