    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    If we can find some players in the secondary, we could surprise some teams this year. I'm thinking 8 wins this season. Losses to Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, and Wisconsin. Maybe it's my rose colored glasses, but I think this team has much more talent than what was displayed last year.

    I am intrigued by Bo Blessie. He is 6'3" 155 pounds, and topped out at 94. Imagine when he gets into the weight program.

    Heck, we might have only 4 players returning who batted over .200 this year.

    14th round is pretty good money. One failure of the staff this past season was not using the gift they received when Luis decided to come back. Why did they not use him like Meyers. Play him in the field Friday and Saturday, then start him Sunday? This recruiting class, the staff seemed to get the in state talent to stay. According to baseball America, the top 2 high school seniors are set to go to Nebraska. Including Colby Gomes, the 161st best prospect by mlb.com.

    When as a player do you start taking pride. This team is going to lose a series to Rutgers. Northwestern and Penn State have to be irate they don't get to play us this year. They would have a great chance for a series win.

    I didn't get to see the play, but listening the announcer says that they make a play at 1st, and Schriber starts throwing the ball around the horn, the ump calls him safe. Erstad needs to get tossed in that situation. This team is playing like an absolute train wreck right now. Show some f'ing life for the team. Or, in his case sit in the dugout in a daze with no answers. This team is the most frustrating team in a long time.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    How about the fact that we went from tying the school record in losses with those players to setting a school record for conference wins. Maybe they really were a cancer to the team, and the team does have more chemistry without those players.

    That SEC is loaded. They have zero teams remaining in the NCAA tournament. Good job SEC, getting all those Q1 wins to fool the committee.

    Another picture perfect day of pitching. Please do not show any instructional videos of Nebraska pitchers, or fielders. This team is the least fundamental team I have seen play college baseball. Wow!! I have never been more disappointed in a team. 21 runs in 2 games to an average low major team, with another 4 outs to go. Out of the 20 games, you can probably count on 1 hand, the number of times they looked like a Div 1 baseball team.

    If I am Erstad, I call this team out. This team is lacking effort, pitching, and fielding. We just got taken behind the woodshed by an average baseball team. I watched the 7th, 8th, and 9th innings. There was zero effort displayed by this team.

    I turn the game on tonight. Nebraska has bases loaded nobody out in the top of 7th, down by 7 runs, the runner gets picked off 1st base by the catcher. Inexcusable! That runner needs to be made an example, and pulled from the game.

    This team is flat out embarrassing, right now. They can't pitch or field. They are horribly inconsistent at the plate. This is one of the worst baseball teams Nebraska has fielded in a long time.

    What coach are you getting if you let our .500 coach go? Please name them. If you are going to fire a coach who set records, you better have a sure fire coaching hire. No Power 6 coach is coming, if you win 22 games, and get fired. No mid major coach is coming for his career to die. For as crappy as the Big Ten was this year, the only teams to finish with 13 wins in the conference were top 3 seeds in the NCAA. If it was so easy to win 13 games, Maryland, PSU, Northwestern, Minnesota, Indiana, etc. would have did it.

    33 for Marshall made some ridiculous shots. That one from the end of the coach's box was crazy.

    How does WSU get a 40 year old to play for them?
  16. I'm apologizing to Michigan and Michigan State. I picked them to go to the Finals, therefore they will lose their first game.

    What to do with Miles contract?

    It's pretty easy, you have to extend him. Let's look at the choice. Fire. What coach in their right mind is coming here? "Hey, you know what winning the most conference games in school history, gets you? A pink slip." No extension. Kind of along the same lines. No coach is going to work for an AD, who doesn't take care of coaches. Plus, it hurts recruiting. Extension. I say make it 4 years remaining. IIRC, he is down to 1 or 2 years left. Make it another 2 years. Sure, you may need to let him go next year, but it looks better from the outside. You can attract better coaches if needed.
  18. Our metrics were poor because we just didn't have chances. Someone called me out earlier about guarantees. You can't be sure with what you don't know. I looked at Oklahoma and Nebraska's common opponents. OU goes 4 - 1, NU goes 3 - 1. Not counting the road game against KU for OU, there was a 12 point difference. That includes OU getting Northwestern at home and us going there. We play their schedule, there's a good chance we finish with the same record. Mississippi State is a tough team down there. They beat 2 NCAA tournament teams, there. Bama and Mizzou. It's not like we shouldn't be given consideration. I still think Miles is a good coach. If he can keep the players and coaches, we have a good shot to dance next year.
  19. I guarantee even with how we played tonight that we win by double digits at home.
  20. That sucks. Win 13 games in the Big 10, and get shipped off to a road game in the NIT.
  21. These refs are flat out bad. Call a touch foul on the perimeter, then they swallow the whistle while players are flying into the stands. That illegal screen on Roby was a bad call. They haven't called a 3 second call all game. I guess that's why they are in the NIT.
  22. Plus, you play 1 game in 2 weeks.
  23. And, why have quarters, if you still have 3 media timeouts?
  24. With the widening of the lane, did that eliminate offensive 3 seconds? Miss St seems to be in the lane an awful long time.
  25. Call me crazy, but I think we should try zone.
