Hoping Williams flips from wisky and think there is decent chance if NU stays on him. This is just my opinion but I think Mapieu is a reach. Have spoken to people who have watched him play and have not been overwhelmed by his play at York. I think Frost will hit the in-state kids hard but how many in state kids can he offer per year and if he wants them to walk-on how many will take other D1 offer (free school) over pay for schooling? That is a fine line that Osborne was able to walk but with the NFL teams now having the ability to find kids at Northwest Academy of Pyro Tech it isn't a sure thing anymore.
Evidently Riley is digging up an old friend/coach from his OSU days to replace him. Hughes was not part of the OSU to NU purge that Riley created last year. Jason Peter tweeted that Riley should get former husker John Parella on staff.
We're not very good. I've never been able to figure out how stubborn coaches can be. Clearly there are issues with the defensive backs and what they are being coached to do. As a coach I would try something different. I know a pass rush would help but even I can see when NU is going to blitz with my fat ass parked in my recliner so I'm guessing any qb can figure it out as well. I'm glad Eichorst has made us Oregon St. East. because of the tremendous success a majority of these coaches experienced in Beaverland. I can handle 3-4 off the OSU staff coming in because they know what Riley wants. But no reason Steele and/or others shouldn't have been hired. I didn't expect a national or conference title in the 1st year but I did expect improvements in the penalty and turnover categories for this team. And the penalties have gotten worse and it seems like the turnovers show up at piss poor moments of the game. I'm gonna continue to be a husker fan but Banker is on my list. I have more to say but I am going have some Bud Lights and hopefully watch Bielema get his Razorback ass handed to him.
