^^^You just hit on my biggest complaint on offense...throw the GD ball on first down almost half the time to keep the defense guessing.  I understand trying to establish the run, but being so predictable is, IMO, the reason for our s...l...o...w starts.  Also brings your QBs performance down when he is forced to throw when they know it's coming.  It's just asking for trouble all the way around.

09/20/2018 - 2:40pm I actually think "Zips" is…

I actually think "Zips" is least they didn't choose to be another "Tigers."  So I looked it up. 

"In 1927, Akron held a contest to choose a nickname for the school's athletic teams.  One suggestion, from student Margaret Hamlin, proposed "Zippers" - in honor of a rubber overshoe sold by B.F. Goodrich Co., based in Akron.  The name was chosen and Hamlin won $10.  In 1950, then-AD Kenneth Red Cochrane shortened it to "Zips."

When I was a kid, "rubber overshoes" were just called "rubbers" (you youngins may not know that).  So maybe Akron should have just settled on "Trojans" (although "Rubbers" would be "catchy" too, in a different way). 

09/09/2018 - 2:39pm  Agreed.  Brian Greise's…

 Agreed.  Brian Greise's ability to hit Howard in stride out of the backfield was SO effective for the '97 championship run. 

09/09/2018 - 2:35pm Some great points made in…

Some great points made in this thread.  Personally I think this team has a lot of potential, however the schedule is indeed MURDER.  That said, I'm still confident that the OLine play will improve under Warriner, and if it does, anything can happen.

09/09/2018 - 2:06pm True, but don't forget that…

True, but don't forget that the Huskers are still virgins in Scott Frost's system.  I bet he has them playing well by the end of the season, and challenges for the west division next year.

08/29/2018 - 8:46am Agree, and it's so much…

Agree, and it's so much about the confidence.  If Nordin goes out and hits his first kick, then he'll be fine at least for a while.  A bad miss could be a setback of course.

08/27/2018 - 2:45pm I seem to recall reading…

I seem to recall reading that resistance training increases bone density, so that seems unlikely.

08/21/2018 - 7:33am I dunno man...I have grown…

I dunno man...I have grown to respect your comments here SJRK so no biggie, but I consider Higdon to have the quicker 'first step' speed but Evans faster over 50 yards.  I could be wrong, but at least both have home-run potential.   

08/21/2018 - 7:27am Yep, it's SO obvious...and…

Yep, it's SO obvious...and sometimes he hair is greasy and stringy in the 'before' pic.  LOL

08/20/2018 - 3:14pm Exactly!  Just like Jesus…

Exactly!  Just like Jesus...on His last day...

08/20/2018 - 3:10pm Yeah, but it was...a…

Yeah, but it was...a doughnut!  At least he CREAMED it. 

08/20/2018 - 3:03pm NFW if you count the books…

NFW if you count the books that James Patterson co-wrote with others.  Have you seen his recent flood of co-authored books on supermarket shelves lately?  Sheesh.

08/20/2018 - 8:21am jmblue - I agree mostly, but…

jmblue - I agree mostly, but they'll at least have a summary discussion so it can be reflected in the board meeting minutes, even if the decision has been made behind the scenes or at the water cooler.

08/20/2018 - 8:07am "...we'll dance around it…

"...we'll dance around it like wild injuns." 

08/20/2018 - 8:03am Agreed - no way they fire…

Agreed - no way they fire him.  I'll believe it when I see it. 

08/16/2018 - 9:13am I must need more coffee,…

I must need more coffee, because I was like..."wtf does the kicker have to do with how our offense plays?"  - Great thread tho...carry on.  :)

08/14/2018 - 9:33am I challenge anyone to play…

I challenge anyone to play behind last year's OLine and not be a bit gun-shy after a dozen snaps.  I don't have any problem with the OP - fans turned on Peters quickly, but I think that was mostly a 'live blog' - heat of the moment thing.  I don't think most fans are hating on BP much.

I'm excited to see Patterson, but still glad we have Peters and McCaffrey in the chamber.  Last year's clusterfuck was as much on the OL as anything, IMO. 

08/14/2018 - 7:27am Kitchen Appliance Jones is…

Kitchen Appliance Jones is too long...I'm gonna call him Stove Jones, the shorten it to "Stones."

08/10/2018 - 7:34am ND Sux!

ND Sux!

08/03/2018 - 2:35pm Then they're gonna need to…

Then they're gonna need to get someone at Verizon or whatever phone company they use to "assist." 

08/03/2018 - 7:25am I'll believe it when I see…

I'll believe it when I see it, and not before.

06/26/2018 - 9:48am Reminds me of Fournette's …

Reminds me of Fournette's (sp?) tape where every run ends up in the EZ.

06/07/2018 - 7:23am G'day mates - looks…

G'day mates - looks promising and my retinas are almost healed from the blinking stars. 

06/04/2018 - 7:51am Well MK may be a troll -

but you seem to want to be his personal troll. Have fun with that. 

05/21/2018 - 3:02pm ...unless she's dyslexic -

and then it's ON.

05/09/2018 - 8:14am Um, it's 42 minutes...

pay attention man!

05/07/2018 - 12:32pm Good vision

- not all that difficult when you're 8-10" taller than everyone else on the field.

04/28/2018 - 7:06pm I agree 100% -

A RS freshman thrown into the starting role early in his career due to injuries, made some damn fine plays and yes, some poor ones.  The OL and frosh WR corps were huge disappointments last year, but everyone lays it all on the young QB.  Whatever.  I think Shae will start, but I'm glad we have Peters to back him up. 

04/26/2018 - 10:28am Hey Dimone -

just FYI...It's FIELD GOAL Jesus. 

04/22/2018 - 11:08am We have a very strong D

and damn good talent at the skill positions.  If the OLine comes around, I have every confidence in this team regardless of who wins the QB battle.  OL is key IMO.

04/19/2018 - 8:59am Thanks for the link.

One thing that excites me about Patterson, in addition to his quick feet, is that he seems very good at keeping his eyes downfield when he has to escape pocket issues.

04/19/2018 - 8:52am WTF Pam?

Tyrion Lannister killed Shae because she was fucking his dad.  Try to keep up.

04/19/2018 - 8:44am Saw a meme the other day...

"Ms. Pacman was the best hooker ever...for 25 cents she swallowed balls until she died."

04/02/2018 - 10:40pm we aren't even playing D
