    could be the differences in the leagues? Not a lot of teams hammering a DT in the box in the B12 these days

    SSO, I appreciate the response and yes...I definitely have more questions now. Lol. It's crazy to me that determinations have already been made about Daniels and he is only being viewed as a depth player, especially considering his reputation at OSU. And I'm not buying that his success is based on playing in a pass happy Big 12. He was still competing against some of the better offensive linemen in the country. Something seems amiss here, unless he's not buying in, not working as hard as he should, etc., but that runs counter to his reputation as a hard worker. Baffling.

    You were right SSO!!! I'm pissed now. :Rolf:

    Only thing I'd wonder is if NPG would get the nod over Dismuke but the rest is pretty much what I would think too.

    Is this legit or just wishful thinking about small town Nebraska talent that gets overhyped on this board?

    It just left me with more questions than answers after being super excited. I didn’t dig in too much. I’ll see what he looks like in the spring. My hunch is that they don’t think he’s a natural NG, and he’s not outworking the Davis twins or Stille in the weight room, so they aren’t sure about him starting yet. We will see what happens when the pads get on.

    But when I heard it on the radio about pumping the brakes in regard to him, it frustrated me.

    I put Dismuke there in wishful thinking that he would take the next step. Huge opportunity this spring for him.

    I am the first guy to get so mad when I hear “are we missing on the next Danny Woodhead” or “Mazour will take over for Ozigbo” for the exact same reason you mentioned.

    He was going to play last year, I just am unable to figure out if it’s due to how good he is, or lack of depth. They started getting close to playing him when Honas got injured and Roberts left. Throw in Weinmaster being about 50% all year and they were hurting.

    At worst he gives us an option somewhere. He was listed as OLB last year but the couple practices I saw he was at ILB. Wonder if they shifted him to OLB or not. ILB is dicey this spring with Honas out and not much depth.

    Let the guy get to campus. Who knows how good he will really be for Lords sake. I remember when everyone had Tyjon Lindsay as the next all big ten guy and was penciled in to start. I remember a certain expert on here had Avery Roberts penciled in as a starter as a true frosh. Once the got here, neither even looked like Big 10 material let alone starter day 1.
    Heck same things goes for Johnny Stanton. Pencil him in as the next Scott Frost they said, starter right away LOL
    Husker fans just never will get that hype is only hype until they get to campus and really see what we have

    Relax, it was just an offhand comment. I'm sure Scott has things well in hand without us.

    I was surprised that you put Miller over Honas at ILB, i can't argue with Miller's athleticism, will be interested to see how he settles into the position in year 2, I bet you they were not ready to play him as much there last year as they did, but injuries suck. i honestly forgot about Dismuke at safety - the last of the Calabasas crew

    Miller is more the fact that he will be with the 1s in the spring (assuming Honas doesn't make it back) so they will start him there in the fall. Honas has all the ability to be alongside Barry starting if he comes back from his blown knee. Sometimes it takes a year to fully get there.

    Isn't speculating what you do on a message board in the dead of winter? He didn't pencil him in as all-B1G, he literally just said, "I wonder if..."
