But, a total flip of the roster is once again going to make it very young.  And, I don't think Husker fans have the patience for that again.

As others have stated, NU fans need to realize how bad the situation in Lincoln is.  This is a rebuild.  It can be done quicker with improved coaching evaluation and development, and hitting the transfer portal.  There is a balance of getting rid of dead weight and maintaining depth.  I think the solution is letting the new staff evaluate players in spring practice, and then coming up with a plan on roster management.  It's unfair for the coaches to watch film of the 2022 season, because they may not know what the player is being asked to do on certain plays.

Why would flipping the roster make it very young?  You can bring in 3rd and 4th year players via the Portal.

 

And there is no reason to keep around 4th, 5th, and 6th year guys who are buried on the depth chart (or who play who aren't that good).

He11 no. Screw recruiting and player development. Who needs that? Just go out with our NIL dollars and buy Bryce young from Alabama, Xavier Worth, Kayshon Boutte, and Cedric Tillman at WR, Braelon Allen, and Blake Corum at RB, and a collection of the best linemen out there and the rebuild will be complete! Go Big Red! Imagine how much the program will save too, no need to build depth so the roster can be 45 players.

I was reading an article this morning about female athletes and NIL dollars.  Apparently, the female athletes getting the most money are wait for it...... blonde bombshells.  It's just a matter of time before NIL gets axed because it will be deemed racist, sexist, etc.

The lines need to be THE MAIN priority through the portal.  That's where you need older and physically developed guys.  The next would be QB.  The rest can be more success with younger guys.

 

We can't go through having several true freshmen playing on the lines.

This does highlight the problem.  A bunch of RBs and WRs we don’t need. Maybe 1 of each but high and jucos are out there.  While, the linemen we desperately need - slim pickings.  I hope the #s jump come Dec 5, but unless they starters for two years or backups at top ten programs, probably just more 2nd and 3rd stringers which we already seem to have.  
 

Imo, the lines have to built in house mostly.  That takes years (2-4) and more likely 4 than 2.  We can change offenses but until we get the line built, scoring and consistency will be hard to develop.  
3.  We need 4-6 good DL to shore that up.  The losses in the portal hurt us this fall.  Guys played hard but just couldn’t sustain it for entire games or even long drives at times.

Yes.

 

We can help rebuild the lines through the portal.  But, if we are going to have success in the short term, we need an O line coach that can develop enough of the current players to be gamers that we don't have to replace the entire lines through the portal.  It's going to have to be a combination, but mostly improvement from current players.

The linemen mentioned are first string, all conference level players at a lower division, with at least one year of eligibility. I pulled them off lists of "best offensive linemen 2022." But you are correct, it was hard to identify young line talent in those programs. Most of this is due to lack of stat tracking for linemen. The WR's and RB's are easy to spot.
