    I have been a long time defender of BC and Bo... And Cally before that... And Frank... And Tom before that... I hope I am not wrong in this case...

    My concern regarding our coaches is how do you just discover that Choi and Long... Especially the former are among your best players?

    I don't know...but if walk ons compose 40% of your starting OL what does that say? I know the romantics on the board love it.

    Not sounding good, trying to confirm if he is already back in Florida. In the end I think his bloodlines will bring him back to Husker nation.

    it would be almost impossible for him to be back in Florida, but either way this is not good ....at all

    I'm beginning to think that it might not be a bad thing if all the extra coaches working the OL are to maintain continuity when the senior coach is gone.

    If he's really gone, following the recent departure of two other second year players (Klachko and Green), it seems like the coaches either are doing something to drive away players, or are recruiting guys without the gumption to hang tough.
    Neither interpretation is complimentary.

    This is bad news, even if he returns.

    That would be quick if he left practice this morning and is already back in Florida? Hopefully there isn't anything to this... we'll be waiting to hear more! Thanks 215.

    The mod's probably ought to delete the thread titles too....to make sure we are completely unaware of these "rumors" that keep coming up.

    I hear you... but if a 4 or 5 star can't beat them out... I mean Long was widely recognized last year, as was Caputo... and our offense seemed to move the ball better when Choi was in there... So who do we believe... the stars or our lying eyes?

    Is Bo every bit as much a sucker for the "metrics" system as Cally? Measurables? He can't be good because he doesn't have the body type (hey this is college ball, not the NFL)... Aaron Taylor certainly didn't have the "measurables"...and alll he did was win the Outland... I mean Cally had Lucky (5*) ahead of Helu (3*)... Keller ahead of Ganz... The best players need to play... if a 5* isn;t and a walk on is... the 5* should sit... If the 5* needs a redshirt, the 5* should redshirt (remember Dean Steinkuhler redshirted... of course he came out of 8 man)...

    TO got criticized a lot for some of his early personnel decisions... he sat a Transfer at Guard who got taken in the second round of the draft (but didn't last in the NFL)... an eventual 10 year NFL veteran transferred when he got beat out by a walk-on...

    I am not sure what is going on... but I sense that people who get to play first are playing based on who they are as opposed to what they have shown... and kids with "metrics" and "stars" are being put out on the field when they really aren't ready...
