I am not going to be the first person to tell you that Scott Frost has struggled in one score games at Nebraska. Unfortunately, I likely will not be the last one either. Frost is quickly rising on the leaderboards in two bad coaching categories of the modern era of football. While losing a oneContinue reading “Close, but No Cigar”
On September 18, 2021 Nebraska and Oklahoma will meet for the 87th time and honor the 50th Anniversary of one of the greatest college football games ever played. Big 8, Big 12, and national championships would often be decided on the fate of this game for the next forty years. However, hard times have fallenContinue reading “Days Go By”
Parker Gabriel wrote a piece about the large share of the rushing output Husker’s QB Adrian Martinez is responsible for. Like Parker says, Adrian has over a quarter of the Huskers carries every season he’s played at Nebraska including eclipsing the 30% threshold during his freshman year while being paired with his most talented runningContinue reading “Run the Ball – With Someone Else”
I am continuing my exploration into tiered college football resumes looking today at the SEC and ACC. Since I am not familiar with these conferences as I am the Big Ten, I will combine them into one article. I will finish with a combined look at the Big 12 and Pac-12. The SEC and ACCContinue reading “ACC and SEC Playoff Résumés”
In recent memory, Ohio State has dominated the Big Ten. The Buckeyes have won the Big Ten five of the last seven years and four straight times. In my recent piece I wrote about Nebraska coaches’ records over the last 50 years broken down by into tiers based on opponent quality. This week, I wantContinue reading “Big Ten CFP-Era Résumés”
I do not need to tell you that the first three years of Scott Frost’s tenure at Nebraska have been worse than anticipated. Frost would have to win seven of the first six games in 2021 (not a typo) just to tie Mike Riley for wins through 38 games. But not all wins or lossesContinue reading “Husker Coaching Résumé”
Last week, Dirk Chatelain wrote an article highlighting some of the numbers behind Nebraska’s drought of top 10 finishes. One part of that really caught my eye regarding a coach’s first three years at a school. Dirk’s article inspired me to dig into these numbers a little more myself and get a better understanding ofContinue reading “Looking for a Turnaround in Year 4”
Perhaps the quickest way to make fans angry are drive killing plays. These are negative plays that make it extremely hard for the offense to recover and get points on a drive. Avoiding these plays allows an offense to keep its entire playbook available on each down. To wrap up the 2020 regular season, IContinue reading “Keeping It Clean: How Well Teams Do on Clean Drives”
I came across a recent stat on @HuskGuys account – Nebraska has drawn zero holding penalties through five games in 2020. As someone who has watched every game this year, I was not surprised when I first saw this stat. As someone who loves data, I wanted to look around the conference to see howContinue reading “Hold Up. What’s Going on with Holding Calls?”
