I'm taking a look at our starters.....and smiling?

I look at what I think our starting defensive lineup will look like and I smile. It seems to me that this veteran lineup should be able to win more games than it loses.

DE – Robinson

NG – Daniels

DE – Stille (he'll be back)

OLB – Reimer (speed to play outside?)

MLB – Honas

MLB – Kolarevic (didn’t transfer here to sit on the bench)

OLB – Domann

CB – Taylor-Britt

CB – Joseph (didn’t transfer here to sit on the bench)

S – Dismuke

S – Williams

But then I look at what I think our starting offensive lineup will look like…..

QB – Martinez

RB – Stepp (USC’s best running back?)

TE – Allen

TE – Fidone

WR – Toure’ (didn’t transfer here to sit on the bench)

WR – Betts

LT – Corcoran

LG – Piper

C – Jurgens

RG – Nouilli (didn’t transfer here to sit on the bench)

RT – Benhart

….and I still smile because I think this veteran group should be able to win more games than it loses too!

I also feel that Special Teams can’t stay as bad as they’ve been.

Am I just drinking Kool Aide?

If what you are drinking makes you feel good, don't let these bozos crap on your parade!!!

I’ll absolutely take a Stein, to the top, of what you’re having brother!!

Yes, you are drinking it . . . and yes, it is okay (I do it all the time and I am still breathing).

There are objective reasons to look for a Husker squad in 2021 that will more closely resemble our successful teams in the past than what we have seen the last few years. Veterans across the board on defense (especially D-line) and an emerging young O-line that has the size & strength (finally!) to compete in this physically impressive league. Plus it appears we are developing some depth along the o-line. Man, I hope those Riley-Pelini days are gone for good where I would get a pit in my stomach when seeing one of our OL starters go down, knowing we had almost no one as an equivalent backup.

Regarding your list above: I think Ezra Miller (6'6' 325 transfer from Iowa) will make a push for a starting position on the OL next fall. If all else is well, this young man looks like a clone of those Iowa OL boys that seem to push the league around year after year.

Hope so, but then there's that small thing of Cam Jurgens being able to start the play off successfully :). Hopefully he seals up those mistakes this coming year.

I can feel good about most everything you listed except for QB and a real unknown at RB. We know what we are getting back at QB and there is no reason to smile as we have seen AM's ceiling and it is not good enough to win 7-9 games. What is crazy is Frost knows his offense requires a top performing QB to be successful and yet he repeats the definition of insanity

RB is soooo important for us and we just haven't had a stud since Ozigbo. I hope the USC kid or some other player on the team steps up but there is little to pass judgement on at this point.

Any intelligence on Manning? Frost was pretty vague about what his health issues were last season, but it would be a huge boost for the offense this coming year if we could get what we originally expected out of him. I'm also wondering whether Martin can be more of a contributor. He was a four-star coming out of high school, after all.
