    And I would have hoped that after the Ohio St game, this program would take a serious look at getting better, because we aren't close.

    What would you have done, in three weeks, to "make us better"

    I'm honestly asking.

    We're beat up and have no depth. Nothing the coaches can do

    I'd like to suggest that we have TA wind up and throw a Hail Mary in every series. That way we can catch up quicker.

    Yet again, missed a receiver on the long pass, who had his defender beat.

    We have no chance on that pass this season. Tommy just doesn't have the touch to hit those. If it's not a situation where the receiver has to stop and come back for it, we're not going to complete it.

    So last week with Fyfe, we see tons of screen passes that worked great. Today, we see zone read or long passes. Sorry, I love TA's efforts and his passion to this team, but don't lose a game just to thank him for his efforts.

    Then coach him to make good decisions & pull him if he doesn't listen. Having a QB who makes the right reads and is held responsible for it trumps speed & talent. It happens everywhere else but at Nebraska. Bad coaching.

    Yeah those decisions, and the ones to start walk-ons on the line

    How many times have I read comments saying Tommy's best ball is his deep ball?

    When has he last completed one?

    He has to be like 2 for 100 this year.

    His deep ball is just not accurate. It looks nice, but isn't where it needs to be to complete the pass.

    I like Tommy, but his decision making sometimes reminds me of being 13, and choosing plays on ncaa football with one guy going deep. You know which route I'm using.

    He had his man beat there. Mediocre QB hits that.

    Yes they can!!! Coaching is putting ur players in a position to excel-- trotting out same schemes all year with no originality is recipe for failure!!! Imagine if Belichick was coaching this team-- you think he would do cover 2 all game like we do? Or do you think he would study Iowa like crazy and scheme a way to take away what they do best? Don't accept mediocrity!!

    12/18 dudes on the OL/DL two-deep for Iowa are from Iowa or Nebraska. They have 5 either sophs or frosh starting on the OL/DL. If those were the numbers for Nebraska, you'd be using them as excuses for Nebraska.

    This looks like it is going to be more than ugly before it's over. Armstrong is operating at about 50%. Fyfe must not be able to play or he would be in by now. And Armstrong at 50% must be better than Darlington. The sum of this is going to be really ugly, I'm afraid.

    If Tommy can't run let's see if Fyfe can pass. What we are doing is laughable, our coaching staff is supposed to make players better, I personally think they are failing.

    "All Pelini?" Exaggerate much? Recruited by PelinI and having to play a clearly unhealthy QB because we have no depth at the position, yes, Pelini. Did you want to talk about any other positions on the field, or was that your ace in the hole

    do you guys really not understand that's not the play we're calling? That Tommy just ignores the underneath man entirely if there's a chance to air it out?

    No, I'm not proud of this, I'm also not so incredibly stupid as to think this warrants "burning it down and starting over."

    My daughter plays volleyball with a girl who can absolutely crush a hit occasionally but more often hits out and is a defensive liability. You would be shocked how many times during a tournament a fan of another team raves about how that girl hits, but for every one kill, she gives up 3 pts to the other team. The flashy kill resonates with them, but they miss the small things that girl does that hurts the team. And the coach doesn't pull her often, she thinks the next play will be the one where she just crushes it, but usually doesn't. It's kind of how Tommy is, sometimes makes good plays, but far more often, makes a bad play. We've tolerated poor QB play for 8 years now, we don't know any better.

    I dream of a day when Huskers can at least hold their own at the line of scrimmage. Both lines are awful today. Never going to compete for championship's until the line play gets better.
