    Buy Low, Sell High

    Frost is overhyped in your view? Unbelievable. This staff is 3 fricking games into their first season. How about you dial it back a tad? Yeah the results we have seen thus far are not ideal--in fact they are the opposite of ideal. But we need to sit back and just let this process work. Frost and these coaches took an 0-12 team to 6-6 then 13-0...they didn't suddenly become stupid and incompetent overnight. Were going to take some lumps this year. Things are probably going to get worse before they get better. I dunno, maybe take some Prozac if you can't handle it.

    Where does Frost go from here

    I'm not sure this warrants a separate thread so I will just put these thoughts here... I think what Coach Frost needs to is slow down. What I mean is, play the younger players and take your time. Huddle up, make sure everyone knows their assignment. Go back to the basics of running the ball and using play action. Focus on fundamentals and execution. Get that, THEN increase the tempo. I know Coach Frost will never do that. But I believe the reason we're seeing so many mistakes is that players many times don't know what they're doing, and pressure to go fast amplifies those errors. That is what I would do in Coach Frost's shoes.

    there's no reason to lose to purdue...

    We'll find a reason to lose to Purdue. We'll invent a reason if we have to.

    Michigan players: Nebraska gave up 'after the first series'

    There is no doubt you are correct. However, I think push comes to shove, bench the older players and just take your lumps with the younger players who have bought-in. I mean what's realistically the difference between losing 56-10 vs 62-10? A butt kicking is still a butt kicking. I guess what I am saying is: we're probably going to lose anyway, so we might as well play the younger players and build for the future. And I realize that sounds like writing the season off as if it is lost, and maybe it is. All I know is Coach Frost has to do something to get through to these players that poor play and half-assed effort is unacceptable.

    What Did We Learn? Michigan

    I don't wanna say if Frost doesn't fix this mess that Nebraska is "finished" because that just seems to negative in tone. But otherwise, I completely agree with the rest of what you said.

    Your guess is as good as mine. What I think we both agree on is that our current starters along the OL, and possibly even some other positions, need to see the bench. As to what Frost will actually do? There was a post that hinted at, or said, that an exodus (of potentially many) players was coming soon. Been trying to find it but haven't yet. To be honest, I kinda blacked out about sometime after 10pm and well, my memory is a bit hazy right now.

    Michigan players: Nebraska gave up 'after the first series'

    That is 100% true. I think I said this yesterday: That is why, as a condition to accepting the HC position, he wanted a guaranteed five years because he knew just how dire the situation was. But, being a professional, he didn't want to say publically what he really thought--which I do not blame him at all. So yeah...I still don't think the season is lost, but yeah....Nebraska (as a program) has a far steeper mountain to climb than I previously wanted to believe. Coach Frost is the right guy and he will get us where we want to be. We're just going to have to our lumps along the way.

    Why Are You the Way That You Are?

    When Deadpool is about to do something epic or cool, he says, "Time to make the chimichangas!" Of course he usually puts an expletive in there and since expletives aren't allowed as per board rules...

    Agreed. But at the same time... Because what we saw yesterday was just the Mike Riley gift that keeps on giving.

    Player sideline demeanor was disappointing

    And really, the entire team needs to keep their heads up and attitudes positive.

    I slightly disagree. There has been some noticable changes, they just haven't taken effect across the entire roster yet.

    Nebraska Will (probably) Play Purdue

    I like it! (And I hope you know, about the whole "contrarian" thing...I'm just messing with you. I don't mean it to be mean or rude.)

    To my knowledge, absolutely no one.

    I concur. And if Frost needs to show half the roster the door, then that is what he should do. Fricking Mike Riley...the gift that keeps on giving. Edit: I know it is probably not possible or practical, but I'd like to see Coach Frost cut and get rid of every player Mike Riley recruited.

    Everyone, I would like to take this opportunity to say that I misspoke and was not clear in what I meant. My claim of calling into question the validity of recruiting rankings was definitely an over-statement and I meant to ask that more as a rhetorical question than anything else. I know why we got demolished by Michigan yesterday: 1) As I mentioned in another thread about QBs, many of our 4 stars we've recruited across all position groups haven't panned out for various reasons, 2) the previous coaching staff were awful coaches, and 3) there was zero development of the players who were here. I guess what I am saying is the fault lies with Nebraska, and NOT recruiting rankings in general. See, this is why I shouldn't post while intoxicated.
