Whoever gets the HC job, I hope they burn the "black shirt" tradition for good.

"Black Shirts" have become a weird distraction for several years now, and it's high time they just go away - it's not 1995 anymore.

 

Black Shirts separate the team in an unproductive way; fielding an amazing lights out defense should simply be our standard, and not something to make a big deal out of.

 

Look at Iowa's defense the last several years - one of the best statistically speaking over the last decade, and they just go out and get their business done with zero hype. That's actually a good model for how our D should operate going forward.

You make it sound like if we didn’t have this nickname for first stringers we’d be a top defense.

Stop making it an honor.  You cannot create a team environment when special (visible) status is given to certain players.  Everyone on the Husker D is a blackshirt.  Everyone on the Husker D wears a blackshirt in practice, just how it was when it all started.  I do say we need to get rid of the skull and bones.  We are a collegiate football team, not a biker gang.

Get rid of depth charts then. They are special being 1st string

 

Get rid of green jerseys then they are special

 

Blackshirts meant more when we had dominant defenses. People wanted them and strive to earn them.  It was an honor to have them

 

But yes we should field a dominant defense, I agree with that
