I get it but this site is a mix of straight journalism and non. So I can understand mentioning things like this.
As long as they do not give him legitimacy in doing so.
I call B.S. Bert isn't cancelling a dinner date.
Yeah, the current staff is mostly shielded from a ZS meltdown but not completely.
And even if they were all shielded its not the kind of thing I'd want floating out there. That comes with it's own set of problems. Of course, the blueprint on how to deal with it has been established. Just don't cooperate with the NCAA and there's not much they can do.
This is gonna end up biting us in the ass at some point.
Can't bring myself to listen, because I think the guy is an assclown, but he seems to be dropping all kinds of interesting nuggets that are likely true to mostly true regarding the program/recruiting etc...This story is pretty funny actually. He probably isn't as forthcoming on his family situation or it's a much more biased take.
But if you think we are squeaky clean I have some beachfront property to sell you in Arizona. I could definitely see a situation occurring because he opened his damn mouth. I don't think the school is directly or even indirectly is really paying players (the infamous bagmen) but there is no way those guys aren't on the outside with the hundred dollar handshakes and such. I'm 100% positive this occurs at every school. And I bet a coach or two at each program knows about it so there goes the plausible deniability and how long before the shit hits the fan.
Anyways, if DJ goes on with him I'll probably catch that episode. DJ can be a bit sanctimonious and we don't agree politically but I do believe he lives what he believes to the best of his ability and I do think the guy is pretty intelligent. I would expect him to come on with all the stuff he knows and wipe the floor with Zach.
I'm highly concerned that is exactly what we'll do. It will be effective. We will think we have it fixed or headed in the right direction.
But it will be fools gold since Nebraska is so bad, like our rushing numbers against Oregon State.
Boy does this team have me all over the place in the feels department.
Here come the downvotes.
No, we will not. I base that on the entirety of watching this season.
I leave open the door to change my mind if I see a turnaround from this loss and bye week like the pasting we gave MSU last year plus the whole anything can happen in a rivalry game.
But now, if I had to choose or put money on it. We don't win.
Now I'm off to say a whole bunch of Hail Mary's, and wash my mouth out with soap. I feel physically sick.
Pretty sure Campbell from ISU gets a call before any of the ones you listed with the possible exception of Fickell.
Brohm is the only other one I'd be interested in on that list. Day should get an interview.
But I'd still rather Urban than any of those guys.
well, sometimes 2:1 but I believe your point stands. The whiffs or misblocks have been very high this year.
I think that started this year and our lack of run game.
You can be damn sure if MiIller or Barrett, or anything resembling a run blocking offensive line were out there he'd still do it.
Hadn't thought about that. Damn though, you might just be right.
I think you hit the nail on the head regarding the secondary. Yeah they are 5 star replacements for the guys that left but we lose 3 players in each of the last 2 years to the FIRST ROUND of the draft and that has to catch up. Not everyone turns in a Malik Hooker year the first year they start. I'm not overly worried long term about this unit.
Linebackers? OOOOHH BOY. I think you are slightly off regarding the athleticism. Werner/Borland may not have Brownings athleticness but they aren't bad. Hell Browning has had issues as well this year. What I see is the LB's consistently being confused, out of position, and not fighting through blocks. I see a major coaching issue here plus a little bit of first time starteritis as well. Davis has to go.
