    I can agree with that, sometimes, but it's up to his teammates to bring him down to earth.
    Competition, experience, he has to beat that out first.
    I don't see this staff just handing over the keys to the defense here. I get it that young guys are the greatest in their own minds, but they have to earn it, and we have alot of space for him to do just that, but it wont be handed to him.

    you are definitely correct their. KeShawn Green will have plenty of opportunities to play. We have a number of holes on defense. I can definitely see Greene and Henrichs seeing the field soon.

    Well then let me tell you something in response to that, you’re not part of the problem. If you really do have an objective mind and are supportive while not “sucking off their man bits” but yet “critical” when need be, then this message is not targeted towards you specifically. You’re good. It’s most of our fanbase, the media, and some of the coaches (just look at who we had starting at QB this past season for crying out loud with all the praise and hype in the world from every one of those sources I named) that I have an issue with.



    Because I got to tell you, we’ve had fans, media, and coaches up there telling us how great our players were, how great our season would be, and all that yatta yatta before the season started and it apparently turned out that everyone didn’t know what they were talking about. You had coaches in camp who’ve seen these players all off-season last year hyping this team up. You’ve had media crews who literally went in each Big Ten camp to see the teams and came out still saying they see Nebraska winning the West at the very least. It made me sick because I would expect maybe the fans and media to be ignorant and not know what they’re talking about, but the coaches too?!?! So that means when these coaches looked at our team and examined with their close eye how good they actually were, they all either:



    A. Lied to themselves

    B. Lied to the Public

    C. Actually looked at what they had in camp and thought “Hey this looks pretty good.”



    You tell me which you think it is, but for all intents and purposely I hope for the love of god that it wasn’t “ C. “



    So these coaches apparently don’t know what they’re “praising” before the season starts. The media doesn’t. Nor does our fans. The only thing we know for sure is what they do when they actually hit the field in front of our very eyes, then it’s all clear then if they should be “praised” or not.



    Again, this message is not directly meant for you, but to the public, to the fans, to the media, and to the coaches to just hold off on the “praise” before the season even starts. And that doesn’t mean you say “nothing” the whole time, but instead do a little ridicule and lampooning to see if that helps motivate these players and this team on top of the “support” obviously being spread a little here and there. But no more blind “you’re going to be the best ever” sh*t. Why? Because it unequivocally doesn’t WORK! Period! That’s why!

    Greene should have excellent growth getting in the SnC. He will be on a snap count, no doubt, and I bet he gets alot of them.
    He's likely our gest defender since Gregory, actually, if he grows much, close in size as well.

    Listen, Bo's only problem was that he didn't have the recruiting skills Frost has to build a great team. Bo, had Nebraska as one of only 3 teams over the 7 years he was here winning 9 to 10 games a year. Bo. Bo beat Iowa 3 our of 4 times and mostly had no problem with them. Bo. Both won the West division in his time here. Bo. Bo beat Ohio State, Michigan, went undefeated against Penn State, etc. Bo. Bo was the last Nebraska coach to beat Wisconsin. Bo.

    So again, there was no problem with his antics except he just didn't have the recruiting capabilities to build a great team but he had the very best teams Nebraska has ever had since Solich was fired. Bo.

    Somebody give this man a medal. This guy's logical is exactly what I'm talking about that we all as fans, media, and coaches need to apply to our players. The only praise any player needs to get from the public is when he goes out and has a great football season. Period!

    This "praise them before they play a college game" or "before the season starts" sh*t is not what seems to WORK for Nebraska now a days.

    I wonder if our AD gives a tell this year as well.
    I know there's some fans who just don't get it, they love to b1 tch and criticize, but ignore real facts.
    Oh, yea, that tell? Since some fans regard our program as not knowing whats going on, well the tell was, get to a bowl.
    But disregard this if you just are disruptive, offer no clue as to whats going on on the field, the players, their play, and wouldn't know if it's a coach or a player who screwed up on any given play.
    There's a reason the best coaches go to the nfl, their players get drafted, they dont have to get guys that screw up, they get paid by scheming the game.
    Some fans don't get that part, the part where in college, you already need that part, the schemes, in game changes etc, but, you're stuck with who you have, there is no draft, no bonafide players, but we know who they are.

    I’m going to tell you something that maybe might shock you, I don’t know, but I actually like your optimism as a fan. I like how you point out what these types of players have done, how they get talked about, and how good their chances are to start early and play often. But you’re missing the point.



    Point is that we should not want ANY optimist talk about ANY of our players whether coming in or that are on this team already because of how bad of a jinx that tends to put on us come time those very players hit the field for us on Saturdays. It doesn’t work. The “praise” the “optimism” talk doesn’t…. WORK! PERIOD! So stop doing it. Stop being fools and doing it over and over again expecting a different result.



    We SHOULD be suspect of these players at all times at this point. We should discourage the media from speaking highly of ANY Nebraska recruits or players coming in and if anything to just ridicule them with harsh satire seeing if it’ll get them motivated to do much better than “expected” on Saturdays when they get on the field. I’d much much much much MUUUUUUCH rather see multiple articles of disrespect, doubting if they’ll succeed at Nebraska, lampooning them, or any kind of disrespect they’d have to say about those players when they get here to play for Nebraska because that’s what tends to motivate players to do well.



    3 years of making No bowl games because of this:



    https://www.cornnation.com/2017/9/1...ll-arkansas-state-red-wolves-five-reasons-win (And we’ve seen how that guy turned out).



    https://247sports.com/Article/Adrian-Martinez-Heisman-trophy-Nebraska-football-129265445/



    So screw that noise. I’m done with this stupid “hype” and “praise” stuff. Hell we did that sh*t with Hoiberg too and it didn’t help him in basketball this season one bit.



    Point is we need to stop being fools and do something different for once since what we’ve been doing clearly has not been WORKING.
