So true. I don't understand the need to justify poor performance by fans. We are all grown men and women here, so can't we just call a spade a spade? Frost was fired up to get Wandale, and did bill him as an important piece of the Offense, so much so that he was probably overused, in maybe not the best ways at times. So, I think losing Wandale hurt, to some degree. I think it's ok to say I would like some taller WRs on the roster, but also that throw sucked a$$ and it needs to improve. A bigger WR might have a larger catch radius, but will he be as fast (or quick) as Wandale and get as much separation? And, it doesn't mean we hate AM because we say the throw sucked. He seems like a stand up young man, and I hope he gets squared away and has an all-conference type season, not just for us but for his own personal achievement. It's easy to root for AM when he has a good attitude and stays team focused even when getting benched, but we need better QB play to make the Offense click. We don't have the margin of error to blow opportunities to connect on big plays/scoring plays....Just saw a post on twitter that drives me absolutely nuts about our fan base currently:
So go watch the film, Matt Davison comes with "oh no" as the ball was thrown and "Wan'Dale was wide open and we overthrew him." But a fan of Nebraska is of the opinion that once we get rid of the #1 APB in the 2019 recruiting class, who reportedly ran a 4.22 40, who was billed as "everything Frost needs and a perfect fit for his offense" and replace him with a bigger WR this won't be a problem. Not that we completely missed an wide open WR and tried denting the safeties sternum with the ball.
We are in a frustrating time of Husker football for me.
