    Depth Chart for Nebraska Game

    Changes at right tackle and both cornerback positions. Haughton and the two freshman are listed as starters. All I can say is, thank God. We need physical corners and the upperclassmen were not getting it done as evidenced by successful bubble screen after bubble screen on Saturday night.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Why is Scales listed as second string rb? He hasn't played in 2 weeks fwiw.

    IMO, it was our scheme that left us vulnerable on the screen. We were lining up at least 10 yards back on their wideouts.

    Re: Depth Chart for Nebraska Game

    That's why I'm surprised they made the changes - usually coaches don't do that. I'd guess Gene is ****** off and is showing the guys nobody's job is safe and that guys need to perform. If you look as well, Hamilton dropped down to third string behind Darks, Chris Weir is now the backup to Tate, etc.

    Wow, who would have thought that we would be starting 2 true freshmen at cornerback?

    I agree. I was extremely irritated at our corners letting themselves be blocked so easily on the corner though. But then again, maybe our strategy was to just be an obstacle rather than a tackler.

    Bigger question...

    Why is Bass #3.

    He was the lone flicker of brightness on Saturday

    The screen game was a nightmare on both sides of the ball. We had some VERY poorly executed screens that there was no excuse for. Many times Baylor was covering three with two and we still couldn't block them on the screen.

    Didnt see Banks on the chart as well. Saw the cast on sat. night, maybe not quite healthy enough?

    looked liked our FR receivers (SJ) were not strong enough at the point of attack.

    Re: Depth Chart for Nebraska Game

    My favorite change is no Michael O’Connell returning punts. Was wondering if Gene had a 10 muff/fumble grace period or something.

    I saw Bass whiff on at least 3 or 4 blocks.

    I think he's probably the best runner we have, but as a running back he's not as reliable as Scales when it comes to pass protection.

    And let's face it, we need Arnaud to stay healthy if possible, and Scales helps more than Bass does in that regard.

    Exactly. But the question is why on earth did we continue to play that way all game? Baylor could complete quick outs and screen plays vs. the D at will. What was Coach Bolt doing? The more I watch our defense, the less confident I am that Bolt can turn this thing around. I hope his close friendship with Chizik does not end up really hurting the team in the future.
