Bring back Frank Solich as Offensive Coordinator. Linemen always blocked, running backs never dropped the ball, teams always scored.
Russell. If Frank Solich could of Recruited in ANY WAY, He would of never got fired....Let it go dude!!!! Husker Santa I want a New O.C...Here are a few names.. Bryan Harsin From Boise State and Scott Frost from Oregon. NO RETREADS (Russell).
an option offense isn't effective anymore because its too easy for a good defense to shut down, and there are a lot of teams with good defenses and quick strike offenses, that an option offense won't be able to keep up with.
A pro style offense will attract better recruits, because most players want a system that will prepare them to make it in the pros. An option offense doesn't do that. As matter of fact an option offense kind of wastes talent. just think if Crouch ever learned to complete 20-30 passes a game, maybe he would be a pro quarterback today, look at bobby newcomb, just think if he was thrown the ball more, he would be a star receiver in the NFL today. The last Nebraska quarterback and receiver that made it in the NFL were Vince feragamo and Irving Fryer.
Mike, all of your arguments are exactly the same things we heard in the late 80's early 90's. Exact same. And Dr. Tom proved them all wrong. As for Eric, he was never going to be a QB in the pro's and if we ran something other than the option, he'd have not been recruited or won the Heisman. Bobby wasn't utilized much because he quit playing hard after loosing the starting QB spot, not because of the option.
