If we lose to....


I for one think he will turn out to be a good coach. That flair doesn't mean he doesn't work his players hard and give them the right attitude for the field. It's a distraction for everyone else, not his players. My guess is that he is a stern coach with good ideas who will hire good assistants and boot off a lot of players from last year's one win team.

How big a loss would it be if he chased all of them off and started with a new batch. They won one game last year.

Distractions. No one gets to be a MLB player and in addition a totally shut down HOF corner and extremely dangerous punt returner without working at it and without being extremely football smart. and pretty clearly he relates to his players.

And they are now permitting access to those practice films.That was a real Belichick kind of moment.
 



I think Deion will have at least modest success there. His flashy style will lure some talent.

I'm not sure a mass exodus of players from a 1-11 team is all that big of a deal.
Except they’re WR1, TE1, and multiple offensive and defensive line starters left. There are always good and great players on bad teams, bad coaches create bad teams. Just like us having guys from a 3-9 team get drafted in the 2nd and 3rd rounds
 
On one side you have an experienced Div 1 coach, with a more solid team against an inexperienced coach with a total ground up rebuild project.

I would have to go with Nebraska in this one, if I was looking at things from the outside.

How many of the 40 or so players that recently bailed do you think might be great good or great players? Hard to put a number on that, I know, but I don't think too many of them. Would be interesting to see where they all end up and how much success they have post CU.
 
Nebraska should kill CU this fall. Having watched both spring games, UNL at least has DI level players...CU not so much.

Both teams have been among the worst in college football over the past 5 years, so it should be an epic pillow fight. Yet, UNL seems to have more talent and depth, so this is a game that should not be lost by the Big Red!

More than you’d think. They’re scholarship P5 players for a reason
 



Colorado after the mass exodus that they have had so far since "Primetime" took over, I don't know what the rest of the year would be like...By my count, Colorado's now lost all 4 QBs who threw >20 passes, 3 of 5 RBs, all 9 players targeted >8 times, 5 of 8 OLs and 7 of 8 DLs with >100 snaps, all 4 LBs with >200 snaps, and 12 of 17 DBs with ANY snaps.Thats a LOT of players...I know he's brought in a bunch, but can he put it together for this year or will it be in the"future" year or two???
If he can get all of those new players to come together as a team in the few weeks of fall camp that he has he’s an instant legend.
 

There‘s a lot to like from the spring game but there is also a lot to be concerned about for NU … turnovers, lack of depth on OLine, youth of the DLine, new system, new coaches … we are not heads and shoulders above CU.

Could we win? Sure.
Should we win? Yes.
Will we win? Maybe.

CU appears to have solid skill players, their weaknesses appears to be depth, that may not be a factor early in the season. CU is liable to have the best QB on the field when we play them. It’s a road game for us and will be CU’s home opener. Their fan base will be in full bloom and the game is liable to be on TV, possibly an ESPN GameDay event.
Games are won and lost on the line of scrimmage and with the loss of so many Colorado linemen on both sides of the ball I believe the Huskers are head and shoulders above CU.
