    He HAS to be better this year than last. I'll cut him some slack but not all of his issues were injury problems. He flat out didn't see the open guy on many plays. He was not good at getting through his progressions. Maybe that will be better with better O line play.

    Throwing crap against the wall to see what sticks... you are hilarious. Can’t wait to hear your next brilliant reason why Fidone won’t come to Nebraska.

    Or better yet, don’t share your wisdom with us. It sucks.

    I still dont think it was always not seeing guys, as the guys who dont do what theyre supposed to do during the progression, they may later open up, but the qb has already read them earlier,and they weren't open.

    Jamming guys, having defenders in the passing lane because a different guy didn't pull him out etc.
    Spacings another, I think Lubick fixes much of this, and all the sudden AM looks so much better, when actually its spacing and guys getting their jobs done.

    You put the defense in a if this, then that situation, but our two guys have to be doing their stuff right.
    If they safety stays shallow for bubble or outside zone, then, the TE breaks off his out route and runs the seam.
    I just looked at us, and we looked worse than year one, and nothing like the perfection of ucf.

    Keep digging a hole with your "spacing" reasoning. There are generally options on routes depending on the coverage. It's the WR job to run the route the D dictates and get open and the QB's job to find him. Of course they aren't open at all times during a route, it's called getting separation. Good QB's can also throw a WR open by leading them to an open spot.

    I went back and watched plays of Adrian and when all the speculations were flying about injury, his head was a mess and all that I came to the conclusion he just was not seeing the field well. Some players have it, some don't. I saw multiple plays where he was in the pocket and stepped forward to scramble and guys were sitting down and he didn't see them. My theory was that Ozigbo took a lot of hear off him with a 1,000 yard season and the biggest advantage was Stanley being able to get open even when staring him down.

    My best guess is they will be working on Adrian's eyes and keeping his head up to see the field. Our WR were not super great last year but I don't think they were as bad as it appeared.

    No he won't if he does not have the ability to see the field. Some never have it, it isn't necessarily a learned ability.

    Ive been on the phone with your mom. She told me to tell you the meatloaf is ready. Apparently you couldn’t hear downstairs with Slipknot playing so loud.

    This makes no sense. He was a Freshman-All American...he has it. They overloaded him and forgot he is 19...most players in his position take step back or only take a small step forward their 2nd season. He forgot he hasn't won anything and started acting like he was a heisman candidate, and everyone forgot he is a work in progress. He didn't play his senior year, so isn't polished like some...and has been banged up regularly because the style they expect him to play. Frost needs to get his head out of asses and realize you can't get a guy hit 10-15 times AND have him throw accurately on time, with as little experience as Adrian actually has. He can be a scrambler but he isn't going to be a Tebow, short yardage back, make all the throws and still save the day when the oline sucks or makes bad snaps. They need to pick a style...bulk him up and limit the pass game to 15 a game, with 40-50 rushes a game from many sets. Or they thin him down and take out the power run game...but throw more often for a balanced attack. Right now he is tweener.

    Well, I guess that hikes that were thrown all over the place probably didn't help AMart much either.

    I would have never have guessed this topic would have gone 11 pages and going when you posted it. I know we have our Husker obsessed Iowa fans chiming in like we need to hear their opinions and all...but dam. Thomas Fidone is a great TE prospect and myself, I don’t see him ending up anywhere else outside being a Husker. Considering he grew up a Husker fan and all...GBR

    no doubt....because it’s coming. And after he commits to the Huskers then we will hear how Iowa didn’t want him or he’s scared of competition and/or a many other excuses...lol.

    Sure, that's it, hate the homeboy, brought to you by iowafan, known for his stains on his shirts, his rent checks written just 'mom', and for competition for who gets the raw pig.

    Iowa fan also not smart enough to calculate 15%, so DNC has to develop an app for them. And they still can’t figure it out, or how to use their phones.

    Does anybody know if he’s going to take all of his visits before he’s N with his lifelong team? What’s timeframe for his commit?

    Fidone keeps racking up the offers from all the blue bloods, but fortunately for us, there is only one blue blood he wants to play for because he bleeds red! It sounds like we will win the Mom battle on this one too as the family are Husker fans. GBR!

    I think that snap fiasco, that lasted the better part of last season, and constant protection breakdowns, did as much to destroy his season as anything. And who knows how much the injuries impacted him.

    Any Bama offer should scare you. That is a hard place to turn down right now no matter what the circumstances are of the recruit.

    If you get him great for you, I’m not in the least concerned whether he goes to Iowa or not as he has pretty much admitted he would be far down the depth chart. As Tight End U the Hawkeyes just plugnplay.

    Clearly, you aren’t concerned. That’s why you are on here 24/7, because you are so not concerned.

    The All American Bowl is basically a everyone gets a participation trophy event. I would never compare it to an actual competition event.

    Iowa gets him and it will be, "He came here because he knows we will put him in the NFL"
    Iowa if they don't get him " He went there because he knew he would be buried on the depth chart and never play here"

    11 pages of comments over a 17 year old kid who plays TE who, even if he came to Nebraska, probably wouldn't contribute significantly until 2022 at a position that rarely does much for this team.

    But I guess it is February, and there isn't much else to discuss.
