Scott Frost's house was 'burgled.  Rings and such taken from his Lincoln home.
They just steal the half a ring he stole from Michigan?  :91:

burglar will soon be missing his big balls when caught

I don't usually give the local authorities much chance to solve these burglaries, but they will have the help and full support of 95% of the state of Nebraska

Yeah. He can't possibly unload these items in tact.

Never overestimate the intelligence and foresight of the common criminal, but I suppose its possible a black market buyer was lined up beforehand. The rings have value in just the materials.

Hopefully he can terminate his contract to buy the house. 

I wouldn't want to live there after that.

Following updates have indicated that his NC rigs were not stolen as he initially thought, but stored someplace else in the house and later found. So that's good news. 

Entry came through an unlocked garage door...so its likely that a contractor left it open. On accident or on purpose is a determination the LPD will have to make. Sounds like most of the stuff that was taken was Oregon and UCF memorabilia.

Lots of upside to 2020 QB verbal Logan Smothers out of Alabama. 

Kid looks like the freshman version of Eric Crouch running the ball. Throwing motion is a bit off, but he throws a tight spiral and the ball goes where he wants it to. Ran a 4.48 40 at Vols camp, hit 65% of his passes as a soph. Will be interesting to see what the future holds for him.

Good discussion upthread.

JMO, but the blossoming of the passing game in the 80s is what stopped the Wishbone. When the goal of every major-college OL and RB became signing an NFL contract, the Bone and other similar offensive concepts became difficult to recruit to. The Bone and other similar offenses carried on for many years at D2 & 3 levels, who were largely free of the pro game’s corrupting influence.

Tactically speaking, passing yardage has become so easy to gain in the modern game (Some would argue that outcome was engineered by the NCAA) that the costs of committing to an offense like the Bone just aren’t worth it…even if you could fill out a staff that knew how to do install and run the thing. Conceptually though, the principles are still effective…we see many ‘Bone/option concepts out on the field these days, camouflaged by inverted-shotgun formations. That at least has brought some interest back into offensive football for me.
