No continuity in their defense!! Need help on pass game defense!! From what I hear pretty solid on the run game defense. Backfield slacking though. Meh

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

I expect this season to go much like last season did but with a softer schedule.

2 regular season losses, lose Big Ten championship, and then 50-50 shot to win bowl game vs. solid SEC team

4 losses will disappoint me
3 losses I can live with
2 losses I'll be happy
1 or 0 losses I'll be ecstatic

Will we be the best team in the Legends Division? No
Will we go to the conference championship? Yes
Why? (1) Ohio State and Wisconsin are off our schedule this year, (2) we get Northwestern and Michigan State at home, (3) Michigan is @ Michigan State, @ Northwestern, and might also lose at home to Ohio State, and (4) we have our best offense in 20 years if not more.

I'd expect the opposite. We should be pretty good at CB, nickel, and dime. Safeties are a concern. DL is a monstrous concern, esp DT. LB will be much more athletic, but mistake prone. Pelini D will be too complicated for this young group. Going to be tons of shootouts.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

Tried to sit down and watch the spring game on TiVo yesterday and got ultra bored within 15 minutes. In terms of actual football (i.e., non-Jack Hoffman stuff, which was awesome), what developments did I miss? I heard Tommy Armstrong fumbled twice? No injuries I assume? Is Zaire Anderson and/or Mohammed Seisay gonna be worth a darn this year? What about David Santos, Corey Cooper, Charles Jackson, or Harvey Jackson? Had my eye on those last three for a couple years now waiting for them to bust out. A couple of them were 4 stars coming out of HS if I'm not mistaken.

I really liked how they implemented the Oklahoma-esque drill in the first quarter. I was more interested in watching that than the scrimmage.

ESPN's Uni Watch wrote a short article today about Nebraska possibly debuting fruit stripe jerseys (think those hideous new Adidas basketball jerseys) in Week 1 due to some Facebook picture they came across. I'm in favor of the occasional alternate uniform but not in this case. Also didn't like the three stripes on the players' shoulders at Saturday's scrimmage but that might just be a practice uniform thing.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

stripes are practice jersey only. hard to tell much of anything with the defense b/c the guys I would project to start on the DL (Randle, Valentine, and Gregory) did not play other than Ankrah and they were just mixing and matching from the entire roster rather than playing all the 1s together. QBs in the 1H had all day to throw, WRs were pretty wide open most plays.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

Best WRs in Big Ten
Among the best in the nation
Best group in Nebraska history

I'm more than okay with everything Taylor says in that article. Hell, any play that results in positive yardage that doesn't involve Taylor in traffic will add years to my life.

Kenny Bell making a strong case for Top 10 favorite (for me personally) Husker all-time

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

We're going to have to score a ton because I can't see our defense stopping anyone.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

Anything that doesn't result in a turnover is fine by me. The last 2 years have definitely shortened my lifespan

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

Thoughts on the Alex Lewis situation?

IMO, we don't want him (now).

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

Yeah IDK, that's such a rough situation to put yourself in and to put coach Bo in. The most telling thing is the fact that you were just given the opportunity of a lifetime and THAT is how you respond??? Drunkenly beating a guy to a pulp? If the charges get dropped I can see Bo giving him another chance actually. I wouldn't be a huge fan of that decision but I wouldn't be really upset either.

Random note: Got Nebrasketball season tickets the night that they sold out. Second to last row baby. First game: Florida Gulf Coast AKA DUNK CITY.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

DJ Foster just (finally) committed. Had offers from Georgia, Florida, UCLA among others

Stole Zach Darlington from under Urban Meyer's nose a couple of days ago as well.

HUGE recruiting week for us...I think we needed a boost after how slow they started this recruiting season.

Re: Nebraska Cornhuskers Football

must have been one hell of a weekend. that or some of these guys were basically committed and the coaches had them hold off to generate some positive buzz. either way, a good haul the last week.
