    What if Kill came is as CEO/GM and Frost took over as OC? To those with a brain, it would seem like we demoted Frost and Kill would be the HC. I bet Frost wouldn’t be smart enough to realize that.

    I think Lubick is designsted as the play caller, but it's p much so frost can blame someone else. I'm sure he takes over playcalling on a whim. There are no clear cut roles on our staff cuz Frost sucks ass at managing anything

    Don’t get me wrong, I think Adrian is a great person. Does that make him a winner? According to any interpretation of the definition of “winner” the answer is no.

    I’ve never played QB before, but it doesn’t sound too fun when you’re surrounded by FCS guys up front.

    There are infinite excuses we can make as to why he didn’t win. Regardless, he hasn’t won, and in many cases has been responsible for turnovers when the game is on the line. Great kid, but calling him a winner is a stretch.

    NFL qbs can throw people open, if he gets drafted in mid-rounds to a team with a top 10 qb he will be around a long time. His height will be open all the fucking time. They will throw him open.

    I love him as a #2 (maybe even a #1) in the nfl.

    The spread is odd. I have zero faith in the backup QB or the entire team, yet it wouldn’t really surprise me if we actually win a close one.

    Fred has to absolutely find a point guard thats focus is starting the offense and moving the ball. There is a reason guys that move the shit and when left open hit a 3 are a thing. We can’t have a Russell Westbrook with this offense.

    First and foremost, second is a couple guys that can or do give a shit about rebounding.

    We have some shooters, they need to hit shots. I think that starts to come around, but a lot of that also happens with the top being a thing.

    They need to play harder. Effort is consistently shit on everything that is effort based. Rebounds, defense, and loose balls are all lazy as fuck

    I think it’s more torture to watch the basketball team than the football team tbh. Stopped watching after the Creighton game, have not regretted that decision.

    No expectations tho. Neither are fun but basketball comes without any of the cultural baggage that football has.

    I feel like the expectations were higher for the bball team than the football team. I’m not surprised that the football team has 3 wins. I am surprised at how bad the bball team has looked with the talent they brought in.

    This is definitely how I feel 99% of the time. That said, I still have the expectation they’ll be able to look better than they have at times vs. these bottom 50 teams. Yeah TSU shot lights out, but just generally there’s been some really really bad basketball in every game which is when it becomes tough to watch. To me it’s more of a combo of Nebraska looking horrible plus who the opponent is.

    Also I’ll admit over the last 6-7 years, I’ve grown to be way more invested in basketball than football. Probably because I know making the tournament is realistic if you catch fire like the Miles team did. So that admittedly for me makes the losses and rough performances harder to handle. Football I just laugh at this point.

    theyre both atrocious in their own way. honestly am pretty much done watching our men's teams until baseball starts. I have had a long fucking leash with those 2 programs but I am at the stage where I have better things to do with my day than watch them underperform every single game.
