From what I've been told, it's pretty much 100% that we're pursuing a transfer QB for next season. Frost's career as HC is riding on it, so he needs to land a top-tier QB in the portal.

The Huskers could nab Quinn Ewers from the portal.  :koolaid2:

 

(Unsubstantiated chatter that OSU may have more than 1 qb enter the portal after the season so if not Ewers then whoever but all this is purely speculative.)  Keep AM on board too.

NU isn't gonna be able to get a decent transfer QB, while also having Martinez come back. Any decent transfer is not going to want to "compete" with Martinez for the job, they are going to want to have that #1 job pretty much assured for them. It's the way it is.

Yep.  Otherwise what’s the point in transferring.

Well that's an interesting point, but a transfer still has to compete for playing time at new program, anywhere.  There have been multiple cases where a high profile transfer failed to win a starting qb job.

 

We know for sure that next year would be AM's last year, and further if a multiple QB system were employed the transfer would get guaranteed play time next year, and then would have the reigns all to themselves after that.   Especially for a freshman transfer that could work out fine, depending on personality.

Frost should be going after a transfer QB with starting experience at another school, or a big time recruit from recent years who he can give the starting job to. Frost can't afford to make a mistake on this transfer QB. His job is on the line.

Yea it will be very very interesting to see who ends up in the portal.     I also imagine the new OC will have a major say in the recruitment of any transfer QB.  

 

We also need to hit the portal hard in general.   If we could do what Mel Tucker at MSU did to any degree it could really help fill some talent gaps.   

 

Need to keep the defense humming next year to go with the new successful offense.

I'm concerned about next year's D. The Blackshirts were helped this year by a number of 6th year players on the D. I do think Chinander and his coaches have done a better job coaching than the offensive guys (obviously), but NU is losing a lot of talent going into next year.

The point of the post you quoted is that Smothers still has a redshirt available, which can still be used in the future. It's not a big issue that he didn't "use his redshirt" this year.  You are one of a few who are making a big deal about this.

He burned a year of eligibility for two meaningless snaps. And he’s already 21.

 

It’s a big deal to him.
