2023 Nebraska Spring Game Thread (4/22/23): Coach Rhule, Players available after scrimmage

Surprised that this new widget didn't get a mention on this thread.

Emptied one barrel each into the south and north end zones, which was a nice touch since der viener schlinger for whatever reason often leaves them out.

Team performance wise we have a long way to go to get to a winning season. May not happen in 2023, sadly. I keep thinking of HCMR first seasons at Temple and Baylor where he went 2-10 and 1-11 building his program. I think he can get us back to winning seasons, (I thot that with Frost too), but it could be a couple years before we see it. But It would be improvement if HCMR and staff can pull off a 6-6 W-L.

The context to keep in mind is that Rhule was rebuilding both programs without the transfer portal. He has already indicated that NU has enough talent for a winning season and he doesn't expect a repeat of Temple/Baylor Year 1.

Should have been a red tractor but otherwise, cool.

Nebraska has had the talent to be a top 25 team the last 5 years but that hasn't translated to winning seasons.

In 2022 our team talent was ranked at #24
In 2021 we were ranked #23
In 2020 we were ranked at #24
In 2019 we were ranked at #24
In 2018 we ranked #26
In 2017 we ranked #29
All these rankings of Talent should have equated to winning seasons, but they didn't. And it may not again for HCMR first season. I didn't see anything this spring game to make me think differently. We need to wait till the season starts to see if there is enough player development, coaching, & improvement to get us to 6-6 or better.

Here's to hoping a regime change can be the difference with all of that talent to get us to 6+ wins..
