    Just curious? Seems obvious that whatever the hell we've been doing the past 4+ seasons under Hawk hasn't been working. What changes do you think Cabral makes as far as routine?

    A win for a change would be a good place to start

    He tells them to **** the peaks & valleys and to play like it's the last game of the season with nothing to lose....pour your heart, tears, sweat, everything out there, and good things will happen

    This is the last chance for these seniors to accomplish anything during their time here. Win the last game in Lincoln and give us scoreboard for the rest of time, an a lot will be forgiven. Good luck guys!

    Streaks like this become a mental thing after a while, but I have no doubt that Cabral will have them fired up and ready to play, especially after winning the first 2 games under him.

    Wonder if Cabral will revive the t-shirts again. Remember the ones that Mac had printed up before games back in '90?

    My real wish is that we would show up in 90's replica away jerseys. Hell, I would even love it if we showed up in our home jerseys - the color contrast could work against NU's home jerseys. I don't want to ever see the Hawk era unis again.

    He'll probably have the team watching 300 or braveheart instead of the usual " sound of music" flick.

    As long as there's a color contrast, you can show up in any jersey you want to. If you don't use the designated road jerseys it's a 15 yard penalty on the opening kickoff. See USC/UCLA a couple years ago. USC wore their home jerseys at the Rose Bowl.

    15 yarder plus loss of a timeout if I remember correctly.

    Isn't it only a timeout that gets taken away and no penalty? I seem to recall that's what happened in the UCLA-USC game last year and since USC lost a timeout, then Rick agree to immediately call a timeout to even things out. But I don't recall any penalty for yardage being involved.

    Looks like the penalty was a timeout each half, 2 TOs. No yardage.

    Penalty

    The Pac-10 petitioned the NCAA though to allow teams to wear a jersey of any contrasting color with no penalty if they petition the conference. Looks like it could happen with no penalty if they make a simple phone call.

    Rule Change

    Looks like it's time to start a petition to get the Buffs to wear the all black on Friday :smile2:

    Basically Cabral has to make sure the guys avoid freaking out when the first big mistake is made. If the last 15 years in Lincoln are any indication, we generally make at least one major mistake (i.e, pick sixes).

    Here is the new rule for color v. color games from the NCAA:
    2. If the home team wears colored jerseys, the visiting team may also wear
    colored jerseys, if and only if the following conditions have been satisfied:
    a. The home team has agreed in writing prior to the game; and
    b. The conference of the home team certifies that the jersey of the visiting
    team is of a contrasting color.
    3. If on the kickoff at the start of each half, the visiting team wears a colored
    jersey in violation of the conditions specified in Rule 1-4-3-a-2 (above), it is a
    foul for unsportsmanlike conduct.
    PENALTY: Administer as a dead-ball foul. 15 yards at the succeeding spot
    following the kickoff. If the kickoff is returned for a touchdown, the penalty is
    assessed either on the try or on the succeeding kickoff, at the option of the
    home team. [S27]​
    RATIONALE: Creates a process to allow the visiting team to wear colored jerseys
    when the home team also wears colored jerseys.​

    That would be cool. Take the penalty and get Bo happy that there was a penalty in his favor.

    Sure, show Nebraska that we're not afraid of them, and losing timeouts and getting penalties is not gonna bother us.

    " [FONT=Calibri, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial]Don’t think we want to be without a timeout just to do this. It was suggested last week and I don’t think went anywhere. The home team does have to agree. If the home team doesn’t grant permission, it’s a 15 yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty at the start of each half."
    From Dave Plati

    I STILL THINK WE SHOULD DO THIS!!!

    But even if the home doesn't agree and the visitor is willing to deal with the penalty, before all this can happen the conference first needs to agree that the jerseys are a contrasting color. That's how I read it. Black is contrasting to red so I wouldn't think that would be a problem, but I would also think there's a required lead-time to submit this request to the conference.

    Never saw that from Plati. Guess it is good then that maybe they have contemplated it.

    Regardless, I wish we had an alternative to the Hawk era unis. Hope I never have to see them again.

    As we depart the Big 12, I think it is appropriate to give Mac some props. He wanted to model CU football to Nebraska, to set the bar that high. That is a great compliment! NU is excellence and some day CU may achieve that goal. CU fans should really understand that you will be doormats in the PAC for at least 5 years. Good you got rid of Hawk, but you will flounder with the next coaching change and recruiting. Big Red kicks buff ass on Friday. You will not admit it, but in your heart you are afraid of it, very afraid. Adios rodents. Next year we play true opponents who will test us. Competing with you and the other Jucos in Kansas, Iowa and Missouri has been fun. Write if you get a chance.

    For one thing, they are focused on the game, and have distractions at a minimum.
