He needs to start this week for sure. Make it a true competition going into Michigan and set ourselves up to win the most of our BIG10 schedule as possible.

Pretty Obvious. Great defense. He's physically crushing people. He's accurate. Takes care of the ball. Motivates team. Everyone is locked into him. I could keep going....

Seemed to have managed the last game with confidence and should get better as time goes on!

Just a side note. Sims is a great athlete. Teach him the finer points of being a WR and let him run with them! Big Bodied receivers are always great for a QB.

He shows better decision making. Bigger in size. Driven to perform. Less turnovers and he has a longer future at NU.

He needs more time playing this position in game situations. I do think both should play get the rust off of Sims and give him confidence going into Michigan.

High ankle sprain versus LA Tech. If Sims is going to be Rhule's guy, he needs to be healthy for Big 10 play. Let Haarberg get the experience while Sims heals.

I love both QBs but must vote for Heinrich as he played lights out and with the so needed clean play protecting the ball. I do believe we can win also with Jeff and our players would have to just follow him looking for the ball coming loose. We can do that too. It's a team.

Backup QB is always the most popular player on the team, but in this case it makes sense. He's performed, Sims hasn't

Harberg reminds me so much of Brooke Berringer. A journeyman QB

not turning to ball over is VERY important. Although HH had a couple passes that were probably ill advised we were able to come out on top.

Haarberg has the hot hand now, but won't last long if he continues to take unnecessary hits when running. They'll need both QBs throughout the season.

We need steadiness more than talent. Inconsistent play & turnovers at QB have cost us countless games 8 years+,

I would move Sims to receiver, use his skills there. Haarberg looks to be a good fit at QB and will get better with more reps.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
