    Dedoch is N

    I know this is covered on our recruiting site, but I don't believe everyone has access rights there. This is big news. The video on this kid makes it appear he has good offensive skills. For a very late pick up, this appears to be a solid addition.

    Another way of looking at it...how many minutes per game are you expecting from Isaiah and Isaac at the 4/5? Secondly, do you expect Isaiah to play a little bit at the wing? If you project those two at the 4/5 positions, I do not believe you will get any more than 30 minutes each per game. That leaves 20 minutes combined (minimum) per game for Tanner and Dedoch. Any reduction in the average minutes per game for Isaiah and Isaac, creates even more opportunity for Dedoch and Tanner. AND, if Isaiah plays any minutes at the three, then even more minutes are available. Can Nana or James play minutes at the 4/5 if we go small? Can you ever see us go "big" with Dedoch at the 5, Isaac at the 4, Isaiah at the 3, James at the 2 and Amir at the point? Point is, we have an athletic team with a number of lineup possibilities. It should be interesting how minutes will be distributed, especially early in the year.

    OT: The Key to Our Home Court Advantage

    Will the measures take care of both pigeons and blue Jays?

    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    I just saw a five minute video of a recent practice. It certainly appeared that Martinez had the stronger arm. I only opined that it would be Gebbia based on word of mouth. I won't be surprised as to who starts...unless it ends up being Bunch...that would be surprising.

    Provides for a rather prickly walk in and out; but the fact it made the papers indicates it is rather slow news day.

    New Graduate Manager

    The position most recently was manned by Wes Eikmeier, but his two year run expired. Wes is now headed to Law School (as we need more lawyers than basketball coaches). That said, our new Grad Manager is Vincent Fritz. Vincent played at Missouri Southern under KU ex-player Jeff Boschee. His momma is Ann Costello, who played here in the 80's and his Dad and other family members have a rich playing and coaching history. Welcome to the fold Vince!

    Here is where I am sort of leaning towards Gebbia being the starter. We need someone who can and will distribute the ball. I am not saying that Bunch and Martinez can't, but I believe that is where Triston will shine. Tristan can stretch and spread the field. He has plenty of playmakers surrounding him where he can distribute the ball. If he needs to run, he can. We seem to be very deep in the skill positions...now, if we can only block!

    I have no clue how tough their schedule was, but it is good to note that Dedoch's stats in conference play was higher across the board.

    Dedoch is N

    If you go out to his Juco site, there is a good article on him leaving for Nebraska. Sounded like his coach was in love with him.

    Lincoln is having a rash of recent incidents involving minors...including this crime. I am not sure what the heck is going on.

    Nebraska Football 2018-2019

    What should not happen this season is that our offensive lineman getting shoved backward by the opposing defensive linemen at the snap of the ball. Over the past few years that seemed to be a recurring theme. When Tommy was the QB, it was not unusual to see nine men chasing after him...four defensive linemen along with our five offensive linemen. Very embarrassing for a team with an offensive front nicknamed the pipeline. Hopefully the aforementioned weight gain also is accompanied by quick feet and increased strength and leverage!

    Way O.T. trivia questions

    Jim Bivan struck out Babe in his last at bat, so it must be him? And I thought he asked for two autographs, I am pretty sure Musial, was one and Stan humbly signed. I thought he had asked for Cobb's but was turned down...

    The end of AAU Basketball

    There are a number of talented kids that are in a rudderless life situation. If a kid hooks up with the right agent and the agent truly serves the best interests of the kid, then I have few issues. But there are some less then reputable agents out there, and they concern me. By the way, how does an agent enter into a legal/binding contract with a 16 to 18 year old kid? I suppose the contract would be agreed to with a viable parent...but yikes, I can see an increase in Litigation if somehow that kid doesn't like the ultimate outcome.

    Davison Done

    I was sort of surprised he was still doing football, but I am glad he is. I agree jimmy, I will miss him during the basketball broadcasts. I wonder if Jake will take the role?

    Mike Scioscia to Step Down

    I am not convinced Scioscia will step down...unless he is forced to step down. With one or two more pieces, he will have a team that can make a run on the Astros.

    Interestingly, in Bo's time here, his best offense may have been Joe Ganz led. Joe was a pass first QB who could run when he had to run, or perhaps there was an occasional set run. I am not certain which of our three quarterbacks will win the job, but I would strongly suggest all better prepare each game like they will be on the field.

    Actually I haD four of my kids take french for four years each, that isn't the reason that I oftentimes struggleD understanding his tweets

    Not that I am upset or anything, but I have officially stopped following Jordy on twitter. Shoot, I struggled trying to understand his tweets anyway.

    OT: Urban Meyer

    And now new allegations of player abuse while at Florida. The plot continues to thicken.

    OT: Urban Meyer

    The WR coach [Smith] I believe has been a jackwagon! If you remember, he is the coach that started a twitter war with Coach Williams. If Urban hid the truth, OSU will be in a very uninviable position. Will Ohio State really do the right thing and fire their golden cow?

    Way too early Top 25

    I'm not sure that Tim is arrogant; but he is confident in what he says and does. But then, tell or show me a Division I coach who doesn't have at least a bit of that swagger.

    Jordy Gone

    ...plus, Jordy quit on his brothers and the fans in January. Nebraskan's tend to provide a second chance...but burn us twice!!! Don't let the door hit your backside on the way out our door.

    Player First Looks

    I heard a rumor that Thor hasn't progressed as much as hoped. Not sure if that is true, or what that actually means; but we need these players to improve exponentially from year to year...heck from game to game.
