  • RE: What Now?
    Hanway says BOP is winning at about the level of the talent he brings in, which gives us a 9-10 win season on ave. This implies the key component here is to vastly improve recruiting. All agree?

  • RE: Five Factors Provide Hope for Nebraska Against Wisconsin
    So, you're saying Frost, who's only coaching experience is as WRs and OC(2 yrs) would make a better DC than BOP? I don't thnk so, larr.

  • RE: Five Factors Provide Hope for Nebraska Against Wisconsin
    Funny how Watson looked so much better w Bridgewater running his offense. And now he s OC @ TX. Not good enough for NE, though. Bring Marcus Mariota to run Beck's system, might see a difference, you think? James Moore, OU had 45 or so unanswered put up on then by …more »

    Alotta supposedly good teams can get blown out these days, just look @ OU vs BAY this yr and aTm 2 yrs ago, so I dunno. Too much youth floating around on many teams. But still, last nite was about as bad as it gets. What did we have, like 6 …more »

  • RE: Five Factors Provide Hope for Nebraska Against Wisconsin
    @ Admiral, Uh, the Sparty and Wiscy games indicate that we're spinning our wheels with BOP and Co., so if at one point the powers that be decide to roll the dice w another HC, they wont get any argument with me. Best case this yr is 11-2 and no way …more »

    Forgot to mention, special teams may give is the edge.

  • RE: Five Factors Provide Hope for Nebraska Against Wisconsin
    Interesting breakdown. Well, I'd have to give the edge to Scony due to homefield advantage alone. I think we're the more talented team and Scony more physical. Our DL lacks depth, IMO, so they may be gassed by the 4th qtr. My head days Scony by 7, but I'm going with …more »

  • RE: The Sweet 16
    Realista, I disagree that BOP has a particular 'loyalty' to a particular QB or any player, FTM. It's open competition from day 1 and that continues week to week throughout the season. The best players play. If Fyfe or Stanton were better than TA they'd be in there, so that just …more »

    I think Beck should have TA run more optuon and throw less, or at least dont have him throwing on 3 consecutive downd, breaks up the rhythm of the run game.

  • RE: Week 1 Primer
    TAMU was an easy pick. Why? Because SC was rated higher in the polls and the 'experts' picked them to win.

    Yeah, the B12 is taking over the SESleeze, slowly but surely.
