    Barrett Ruud on our LBs....

    I know myself and possibly others have said the LB performance may just be where the season trajectory is decided.

    So is EVERY player on campus now?

    ...or maybe backward swing pass to Luke McCaffrey with Vokolek and Warner or Hickman blocking and Luke throws deep to Manning or Wandale for a TD and Huskers Win and everyone’s happy and we drink beer.

    So is EVERY player on campus now?

    Our lack of vertical game, not just in completions but attempts, was pathetic last year. It was obvious all year, but I think the Iowa game had a stat where AM threw only one completion that went over 10 yds.

    What if Spielman wasn't that good?

    Gary Patterson had some high praise for Spielman, including being a potential punt return option and playing his original music at practice, but I don’t know what their other WR options look like. JD was seen getting some off season work, but I could also picture him being rusty after his long...

    Preseason 3 deep please

    I can’t remember- Is it confirmed Quinton Newsome is ready to go?

    Preseason 3 deep please

    I won’t be surprised if Falk rises up that list some. Martin is quite the wild card isn’t he? If that dude pans out, well then.... this offense sure has a chance to do something. Fingers crossed.

    James Carnie, new Iowa offer

    Think that’s just an “edit” and not a commitment? I hope he goes to KSU if we don’t offer him. It just feels like one of those scenarios that bites us down the line if he goes to Iowa. I don’t mean that as an argument that we have to offer him if coaches don’t feel like it’s the right move...

    Preseason 3 deep please

    Thanks to those who took the time to make the lists. I’ll probably get back here with more thoughts, but it feels like we’re gonna be a deeper team overall with more options and ability to absorb injuries as long as some of the young/new guys step up. Sure some spots are still up in the air...

    James Carnie, new Iowa offer

    I thought I heard Carnie may be more open to switching to DE? And our DL recruiting this cycle has been virtually non-existent, although I know there’s at least a couple of CBs out there. I kind of like taking his raw speed and bulking him up to a DE if we don’t fill up with better options...

    Preseason 3 deep please

    Bump: It’ll be a small project and I don’t have time right now. Maybe later if no one else steps up....

    Avante Dickerson

    Just to clarify, I don’t pass the same judgment for any player who flips their commitment, although I think the practice is too prevalent. Just these particular circumstances where Fleck doesn’t tend to garner a lot of respect. Snubbing Nebraska is understandable as we’ve given little reason...

    What are Huskers are getting with Jonathan Rutledge as our special teams analyst....GBR

    It is an impressive resume. And while max/peak outcomes will be more than welcome, we just need to, at a minimum, go from bottom of the barrel to mediocre or decent. That rise to middle of the road by itself could yield big dividends. But let’s hope for something closer to what he’s done...

    Avante Dickerson

    We’re desperate and will take him, but a kid who snubs Frost, Fisher and Ruud in favor of Fleck? Makes me question his character a bit. As a side note, I think we may have found a potential hidden gem in his teammate Koby Bretz.

    Janovich makes a big impression on the Browns

    I keep saying they need to come up with a FB package with Damian Jackson.

    Look no farther then this position for this season and on....

    I think Adrian is a composed, intelligent young man. He has to be absolutely embarrassed about his unacceptable play last year. It’s been a long off season for him to prepare for redemption having to taste that bitterness every day. He should have been working hard on his throws, his reads...

    What are Huskers are getting with Jonathan Rutledge as our special teams analyst....GBR

    Our special teams has been trash for far too long and has cost us W’s.

    Ok, let's speculate on who will step up to be our 3rd WR

    Regardless of top 3, we need 6 to be ready, and I think we’ll have it. How good can they be? Can’t wait to find out.

    Ok, let's speculate on who will step up to be our 3rd WR

    Is Martin eligible this year?

    We Called It!!!

    If there’s any silver lining, it’s that week 1 we’ll learn what it takes to play with the big boys and hopefully our guys will elevate their game thereafter.

    CAN WE PLEASE START TALKING AND DEBATING ABOUT FOOTBALL

    I don’t mind chugging the kool aid even if it typically gets vomited up later. Rationality can be boring and the sugar tastes good. Season could go many different ways, but I do have some optimism the ceiling could be higher than people think. Dark horse, finally where we belong with no...
