Appears with the new rule, you just try out a program for 4 games and then decide if you want to be there...

Frost thought this new rule was GREAT

I wonder if he still feels that way?

There's no sense having kids on the roster that aren't all "N"

...or if they can't catch a football or outrun a middle linebacker.

THIS WEEK IN HUSKER HISTORY


1933: In the first meeting between the schools, Nebraska blanks Texas, 26-0, in Lincoln as the Huskers outrush the Longhorns 320-85 and coach Dana Bible clears the bench. Late in the third quarter, sophomore Gerald LaNoue scored the third of Nebraska's four TDs on a 13-yard run, his first carry as a Cornhusker.

1943: Nebraska surrenders six touchdown passes to Bob Hoernschemeyer in a 54-13 loss to Indiana before just 8,000 fans in Memorial Stadium. Hoernschemeyer completed 14 of 19 passes for 345 yards as the Hoosiers outyarded NU by 585-203, the Sunday Journal and Star reported. It was the second week in a row the Huskers yielded exactly 54 points, and they would do it a third time before the month was out.

The Bethune-Cookman game will have an 11 a.m. CDT start and a BTN telecast.

I remember The Bengals had a RB from Bethune in the '70s,his name was Boobie Clark.Pretty decent as I remember.Just looked him up he was drafted in the 12th round in 1973 and was AFC Rookie of the Year.Unfortunately he died from a blood clot at 39

Frost said he was running out of things to say in a presser this week. That's something that you can tell a team in UNL's position. In any event, I really think they win this one Saturday. (I keep saying that, but I'm not quitting. And Minnesota has a history of giving up games to terrrrrible Helmets. Michigan since 2007 should know.)

He really ought to just do one presser a week, before the next game, until things stabilize IMO. In listening to some podcasts of Omaha radio, people are just going absolutely bonkers up there. Parsing every word his says, how he says it....did he mean that, or something else? Replay the tape! Ridiculous.

The lathered frenzy of some of the postgame calls make me really glad to live elsewhere. My feelings vacillated between comical and sad. Our poor DC has become the scapegoat...that dude might well be sacrificed to He Who Walks Between The Rows. Heard a rumor that he introduced the Japanese Beetle, but cannot confirm. 

What a shitshow.

Nebraska offensive opponents were called for zero holding calls on pass plays for 21 straight conference games (over 600 pass attempts).

I brought this up in a thread about worst officiating

I'm sure the Buckeyes will throw 70+ passes this Saturday w/o a holding penalty

although the Bucks had 10 penalties for 86 yards in West Lafayette

Here's a chart relevant to the complaint (however, it does not include data for the last 3 Saturdays).
