if he was unwilling to switch position to help the team, then leave. He's not a QB

We should still be able to win three games next season, so I see no reason for concern.

Fans like you are the reason people give up on this program. The defense will be exceptional and the offense has rising stars.

He came to us b/c we were one of the few to offer him as a QB. It's clear he's far from an elite QB so if he's not willing to play another position he'll either be a backup or a good D2/FCS QB. The only thing we lost is a few plays a game he would have been good for a QB draw or trick play.

Luke wasnt going to take Nebraska anywhere, i don't think AM is going to take NU anywhere either. Nebraska needs to get an accurate qb, i dont really care how mobile he is, if he's 18-20 yrs old then hes mobile enough.

L Mac is making a mistake and I think his father agrees. He is not a B1G QB but is an impact player on offense. He could have had a big role here. Good luck to him. And his brother.

When Vedral left Frost had to keep LM at QB for obvious reasons. While they used him sparingly in specialized roles they had to limit him for fear of injuring. It was just bad timing to try and move him to receiver until someone else was developed QB 2.

Wished he'd stay as a slot/WR guy. He's getting bad advice thinking he can be a top QB. I think he could be a top WR if given the opportunity. he'll probably be the next Tom Brady surprise QB. Follow your dream kid - that is all that matters. We'll be fine wtout him if we replace him well.

I really, really like him but numbers don't lie. 1 TD to 6 INTs. His skill set is what everyone is saying and his skill set would be great at Nebraska. Hope he finds this out with feedback from other schools and decides to change positions here at NU.

His talents will be missed but as Shatel and Sipple clearly stated, his qb acumen is not there...yet. Hopefully he can find a qb slot on a PAC12 team more suited to his size and speed. Notice that most of the transfer portal is filled with guys who are seeing a challenge / decline on the depth chart

If we still ran the option offense of the 90s, Luke could've been a decent QB, but it's clear he didn't have the arm strength or accuracy for the deep ball needed for the current offensive design. It would've been nice to keep him as a slot receiver. Obviously he wouldn't have been happy with that.

We're put in a position that if AM gets injured again or continues to underperform, we have the worst offense in the league again. Teams just put 9 on the line of scrimmage and dare us to pass. I have to question the competency of our QB coach.

You have to respect the young man's drive to be a QB but sometimes a person loses sight of the forest thru the trees. It was the coaches job to sell a longer term vision and help him recognize his "fit" with not only Div IA ball but with the NFL. That said, maybe he has other post college plans?

What has changed or was different that would cause a player to want to go elsewhere? Is it a realization that things are not going to get better around you even if you have the talent and desire to be great? I felt like if he could be even moderately effective at QB he'd have plenty of opportunity

I am heartbroken. He is such a neat kid and I wanted to see him play for years and show what talent he really had. I really wish he would reconsider. He was much loved and respected by the fans here.

They're due right? And since I'm 42, and used to us winning 9 games every year for most of my life why would I change my expectation now? 8-4, win the bowl game, 9-4. Should be the minimum expectation for every Nebraska fan. Always! Then with playoff expansion coming, let's get in the mix!! GBR

Of the 3 things needed to win; player acquisition, development and deployment, acquisition is the best predictor of future success. By far in fact. Our roster is built because of great recruiting, development and roster management. It's really kinda all on the coaches to deploy well. If they do, yes

Even with the difficult schedule they have the talent to get 8 wins. Unfortunately, this will also take team execution, discipline and a swagger we have yet to see. I'm hoping for 6 wins and a bowl. Anything more is gravy.

Huskers have not shown ability to beat even avg teams and are much more likely to LOSE one of the games they should win. then upset a team that they are underdogs in. This looks like a bubble 6 win team, at best.

I'll reserve judgment until we've seen him consistently come down with catches in traffic over the course of a season. A JD in hand is better than 2 Omar's in the bush.

No clue yet - he's got all the measurements but has yet to be healthy until now. I think key will be can he stay healthy and can he play through minor injuries.
