  1. No doubt there are some great modern movies but I thought I would jump in the "Wayback Machine" -- I love silent movies!


    Buster Keaton: "Steamboat Bill" ... "The Camerman" ... "The General"

    Harold Lloyd: "Safety Last" ... "Why Worry" ... "One Week" -- FYI, Lloyd was born in Burchard, NE

    "Metropolis" -- A Tremendous Social Commentary Film

    "Battleship Potemkin" -- the Odessa Steps scene!


    Some talkies, too

    John Wayne: "The Searchers" ... "Red River"

    Danny Kaye: "The Court Jester" ... "The Kid from Brooklyn" (then watch Harold Lloyd's "The Milky Way")

    Watch how one story was treated three times: "The Maltese Falcon" a pre-code film referred to today as Dangerous Female (1931) ... "Satan Met a Lady" (1936) ... "The Maltese Falcon" (1941). The first two are awful but they make you realize how well done the classic presented.

    Adrian Martinez is the best passing dual-threat QB we've ever had.


    Taylor Martinez's best single season completion percentage: 62.7% as a senior; 6.1 yards per attempt

    Brook Berringer's best single season completion percentage: 62.3% as a junior; 8.6 yards per attempt

    Keithen McCant's best single season completion percentage: 57.7% as a senior; 8.7 yards per attempt

    Tommie Frazier's best single season completion percentage: 56.4% as a senior; 9.3 yards per attempt

    Eric Crouch's best single season completion percentage: 55.6% as a senior; 8 yards per attempt

    Turner Gill's best single season completion percentage:  55.3% as a senior; 9.5 yards per attempt

    Scott Frost's best single season completion percentage: 55.3% as a senior; 7.8 yards per attempt


    Adrian Martinez:  66.1%; 7.9 yards per attempt


    * Minimum of 30 attempts


    Your point is well made and I am geeked about AM's future as a Husker. I would observe that IMO the best QB is not listed. In 1989 Gerry Gdowski completed 52.5% (admittedly a lower number) but his yards per attempt was 9.8 -- higher than anyone else up there. In addition he only threw 2 interceptions all season. His QB pass rating was 177.3 which would be the highest season rating in NCAA history if he had the minimum of 15 attempts per game (he had 12 per game). And to cap that he RUSHED for 925 yards at an average 7.9 per carry. (BTW, that average broke the record to that point of no one else but Mike Rozier.) It is a fun discussion but Gdowski deserves to be in the mix.

  3. I am excited to see Will Bolt back in Lincoln. It will be interesting to see how his mindset impacts the team. He was a fire breathing, tough SOB on the field and I am hoping his team will be like him. He brings just a bit more gregariousness to the job that should resonate with the players IMO.

    I think it gives good insight into how the hire of coaches can work and should show that Moos "top 3" could have included anyone really.


    IIRC, Moos said he had a handful of coaches in mind when Riley was fired, too. And that he called them to gauge their interest. But we know now that he only really had one coach he was keen to pursue in Frost and he got him. Methinks 3 only really means 1 and, whoever that is, he intends to get him, too. Time will tell.
