    But I was told he was better than Frazier, Frost, Berringer, Crouch, and Gill combined, and will be a first round draft pick.

    Yep the timing on our offense is out of whack due to the snaps. Frost must really be banking on Jurgens pulling it together in the next couple weeks.

    If the snaps are so bad, why don't they put Martinez under center? I know that's not the base offense, but the bad snaps are disrupting the whole timing of the offense. Martinez seems rattled by it at times.

    Overall, I think they still have some shuffling around on the offensive line, because this group isn't doing too well.

    I don't think there is a lot wrong really. That run game is critical, and with penetration as it is, the QB is flustered, the receivers luckily haven't gotten flustered yet, but this is all sort of falling apart because of a lack of run game, because of blocking issues, and probably specifically the center..

    You can't just put a guy in who hardly practiced during fall camp at center and expect things to run smooth.

    Scott knew this was an issue all year, but they can't get through the season like this. They have to address that, it is a must.. if they do, a lot of things will start working like they are supposed to.

    Stats don't mean shit when it comes to leadership. We are playing a shit team and should be coasting but our "best QB ever" can't hit a wide open freshman phenom when we need him to.

    I truly think Cam Jurgens needs to sit second half. He is destroying the timing of our offense with all of these high snaps.

    Honestly I think Mills has done the best he can with what he's been given. There just hasn't been any holes or push...not his fault.

    Agree..

    The high snaps can’t continue and it’s obvious that they are a consistent thing here..

    I don't think there's a power five school out there that we'd have a chance against.

    If you were fielding fly balls every GD snap you would be out of sorts too. Cam Jurgens needs to sit until he can consistently snap the ball to the QB where it needs to be.

    It's a DISCUSSION board. People like to talk different aspects of the game. It would be pretty boring if every thread was just "GO HUSKERS" over and over.

    Yeah, easy to blame the qb who has to reach a mile up to get the snap on damn near every play..

    Interior OL struggled big time. Seemed like the game plan revolves around running inside zone, which we can’t do. Time to adjust and attack the edges more.

    I forgot to wear a Husker shirt today. I just put one on. We should be ok for the second half.

    Maybe because they only have 2-3 plays they practice under center? The center/QB exchange under center hasn’t been practiced much either. The entire scheme and timing are based on the QB being in shotgun.

    yea, I really hope these coaches are listening because they must not be very smart if you can figure it out and they can't.

    Martinez does need to be held responsible for some leadership here. He's just another dude on the field right now, and that isn't good. It's my only knock on him.

    Someone on that offense has to take charge and start telling people to get their act together or get off my field.. and that should be the QB, but that isn't happening.

    They just said S Bama has a whopping 3 total yards in the 2nd quarter. Sure our offense has been miss firing but our defense has shown up. I’m not worried one bit about our offense getting things going. But seeing our defense showing up and showing out...is huge. It’s S Bama but this is where it all starts. Go Blackshirt. GBR

    And Martinez even had the nerve to take a big loss on a ball that was snapped 6 feet over his head!!!

    Because, you know, QBs are coached to try to be a hero on that play instead of securing the ball and avoiding a catastrophic turnover. Sometimes you wonder if people here are watching their first football game.

    And it was only the first half. The offense has been flat all the way around. So far it’s only been Wan’Dale Robinson looking good on the offense...well along with Jack Stoll. MAYBE we wait for a complete game before we start getting critical? Martinez needs to run and use his legs when nothing is there? It’s like he stuck on making nothing but throws. That would help some too.

    Yes, that is the one asset we have so far. JoJo simply MUST be on the field for the 2nd half.

    The problem isn’t that people want to discuss the game, it’s that everyone overreacts emotionally in the moment and we have no idea what is actually going on. People want to declare this team dead after one half of football that we are winning.

    Pick 6 by Eric Lee. Blackshirts have shown up.
    First half S Bama has only 91 total yards. Blackshirts are playing good. GBR

    So Nebraska is playing bad, but still winning and USA only has 92 total yards. We'd be losing this game right now if this was last season. So many drama queens on here.
