    How many freshman quarterbacks has Gus had that performed well? Nix should run far away. Even the two year mercenaries seem to regress in year two under him.

    Another unintended consequence of the redshirt rule came into play at Nebraska just as the season was about to begin.

    Tristan Gebbia lost out in the two-man QB competition for the starter, and transferred to Oregon State just before the 1st game.

    Since Oregon State is on the quarter system, and didn't start classes until later in September, he gets to transfer, use this year as a "redshirt" year, and can play immediately nest year.

    Can't remember a QB Gus has recruited out of HS working out. His successful QB's were recruited elsewhere and already had college coaching/experience.

    I’d be surprised if there weren’t some sort of amendment to this rule soon. Maybe restricting it to freshmen.
