I love this time of year.
I hate this time of year.
I love it, because fall camp is a sign that REAL FOOTBALL is not to far away. I hate it because it’s so filled with bullshit accompanying an undefeated team that it is impalpable.
This guy’s going to provide the pass rush, that guy is going to come out of nowhere to make a splash, it goes on because you want to know about each and every new player coming in.
Nice articles, every one of them, but those new guys and rising stars are not the reason we’re going to win more games in 2016.
The reasons we’re going to win A LOT MORE GAMES is because this is a team together! They’re all behind each other and behind the coach!

Excellent story by Andy Staples on what happened to Nebraska last season and why it cannot happen again.
"We got in a huge team fight," Rose-Ivy said. "It felt like everything in the whole season was in there for a good three or four minutes. The funny thing is, coach Riley usually tries to break up fights. He just let it go. It was kind of one of those big relief things. Everybody got everything off their chests."
If that isn’t the sound of a team coming together I don’t know what it is.
If you have a team that isn’t moving together, you get losses to Purdue and Illinois. If you have a team moving in the same direction, you get 10 win seasons, winning your division and a shot at a championship.
Yes, it is as simple as that. Getting everyone moving in the same direction isn’t simple, but the concept is!
