Miami said they didn't want to travel so they didn't have to travel back.  Weird because I think it would be better to be in Arkansas than Miami.  Stinks for Ark St because they lose this marquee game and it won't be made up.

 

And, perhaps, the Canes didn't want to lose to the Red Wolves...

My thinking as well.  A win doesn't do much, and a loss is a killer.  It'd be like Kansas basketball team going to play IUPUI at their place.

Well, this is pathetic.  I thought maybe it was going to be a tough season, but this is uncalled for.  We have zero clue of what we are doing on defense.  We drop 8 in coverage and WR's are running free. 

 

2nd half, run the ball, and get out of Dodge.

Bad thing is I feel worse losing like that than getting blown out!

I look at it that I want to see some improvement this year.  Getting blown out to Oregon would not be showing improvement.

seems like a talent issue. will any player on this team get drafted in 2018?

I think Gates, if he goes Pro, has a chance.  Drew Brown, has a chance, too. (although kickers not usually drafted) Kind of young, though. 

 

Only Seniors that are starting

 

Knevel (can't stay healthy, and should probably be backing up, if healthy)

Hoppes (no chance)

Ketter (no chance)

McNitt (no chance)

Pierson-El (no chance)

 

Marcus Newby (should not be starting)

Weber (no chance)

Kalu (if he stays healthy, may have a chance)

 

Future players that have a chance (why I think the future looks bright)

 

Lee, Gates, Foster, Bryant, Morgan, Chris Jones (depending on his bounceback from injury.

Lee reminds me of Zac Taylor.  Taylor had a terrible start to his Husker career, after 2 games, he was 29-69-3-306-1.  That's a 42 % completion percentage, and a 75.37 QB Rating.  His final 10 games, he was 208-361-9-2347-18.  That's a 57.6 % completion percentage, and a 123.70 QB Rating.  So far, Lee is 38-73-4-490-5.  52.1% completion percentage, and a 120.8 QB Rating.  The difference maybe the running games, the 2017 Huskers are avg. 4.99 Yards per Rush.  The 2005 Huskers avg. 3.34 YPR thru 2 games.  They finished rushing for only 2.9 YPR.  We should be fine if we can continue to run the ball.  The rest of the season will come down to the rush game, defense and Lee's decision making.

Our senior class is embarrassingly bad.   And that's including Chris Jones who isn't out there.

Lee will be legit by year's end.   He's pretty good now.

On that note, Zac Taylor was the Big 12 Player of the Year in '06. And #13 Zac Taylor is being honored this Saturday as a member of the Nebraska Husker Hall of Fame.

i could see the o-line coach being fired tomorrow, and the whole staff will be fired if things don't improve.

 

a lot of big time coaches are out there... les miles, bob stoops, chip kelly.
