Washington is #28, isn't he? I think mills is 26.
I also noticed some shoddy tackling in the secondary.
#8 Deontai Williams
#6 Eric Lee Jr
Yup. Ironically I somehow had a lapse of #’s memory last night starting around 1900
Safety was # 3 on my list of things I’m worried about.
Bo saw something in him “Lee” we haven’t seen yet
Looks like Lee carried over the bad habits he gained through the Riley years.
I'll give Deontai a break. He was one of the leaders in interceptions, forced fumbles and fumble recoveries last season. On one play he was trying harder to strip the ball than make the tackle. Frost says he wants more turnovers this season so it's possible that it's being encouraged. UCF was #2 in Turnover Margin in 2017.
Regarding stripping the ball though, you can live by the sword or die by the sword.
On that other play JD made Deontai look like a rank amateur.
AM had good things to say about Williams, whether or not that was just coach talk he needs to have a big year. If they learned anything last year it's how to get yourself out of position watching Tre Neal play
None of that made any sense to me.
Which coach is AM?
Deontai was not out of position either time. JD pwned him on the TD.
I wasn't trying to imply Williams was out of position rather the Safeties can't be any worse than Tre being out of position frequently last year, he just got schooled by 10 however, great learning opportunity
AM, our QB, not a coach, just giving "coach speak" type quotes in the press about Williams safety play, in a good way.
idk if that's just AM's leadership role trying to give the guy confidence or is Williams actually ready for a breakout year. In any event it won't be long before we find out which
I also like that he's a 3/2 guy in that if something happens he still has a redshirt to fall back on
They spelt 'Jahkeem' wrong.
Defensive linemen that will play
those are some big, young men in the middle
Football - Roster - Huskers.com - Nebraska Athletics Official Web Site
Darrion Daniels 6'4" 340 pounds
Damion Daniels 6'3" 340 pounds
Carlos Davis 6'2" 320 pounds
Khalil Davis 6'2" 315 pounds
Ben Stille 6'5" 295 pounds
Deontre Thomas 6'3" 295 pounds ( I thought he played wll as a true freshman in 2017)
Jahkeem Green 6'4" 325 pounds
Not sure if they sees any playing time
Casey Rogers 6'4" 300 pounds
Vaha Vainuku (has he even been mentioned by a coach?)
Probably play 4 and red shirt
Ty Robinson 6'6" 315 pounds
Tate Wildeman 6'5" 290 pounds
I know I missed names of other players
Did a quick look at Iowa roster, most of their guys are not that big. Aj Epeneza is 6'6" 280 pounds, but he is a DE
don't forget Daishon Neal - 6'7" 310 pounds. not sure he'll get a ton of playing time with all them, but i remember him getting some last year before getting an injury.
, not sure how i missed this note.
Man I hope Mo Washington plays this year
