Im 100% on the Scott Frost band wagon.  Hes a perfect fit and is kicking ass @ ucf, with latest blowout of 41-14 over Memphis.  Right now UCF is a better team than NU, primarily because of Frost.

 

If nu doesnt scoop up Frost at years end, LSU or TN will.

 

Scott Frost is the future of NE.

I'm high on Frost. Gary Patterson is my #1 choice, but Frost is #1a.

 

Watching the way he's transformed the team over the last season and change is remarkable. Granted I didn't watch any of their winless season, but just from Frost's first game to now is an overwhelming improvement.

 

If he could take the reigns and improve NU even half as much as he did UCF over two seasons, I have to think we would at least be in the B1G title game in 2019.

It's becoming more apparent to me that NU needs to seriously consider Frost. He doesn't have a ton of head coaching experience, but look at what he's doing at UCF. Patterson is another great option that's been mentioned. They can't get this selection wrong, if they do we are screwed for a long time. It's time to climb out of this abyss we're currently in and get back to the level we belong.

Question, would you want to bring in a new coach for next season?  Games at Ann Arbor, at Columbus, at Madison, at Iowa City plus a good Colorado team coming to Lincoln.

 

Would it make more sense to have Riley be a sacrificial lamb next season and take on that gauntlet or bring in a new coach trying to install his system and culture only to have the team beaten down?   Almost makes more sense to give Riley another season because the 19 schedule isn't a bad schedule to be working on a new philosophy.   Doing that Nebraska may lose out on Frost, but no one will accuse Nebraska of not giving Riley ample opportunity with 4 seasons.

I personally don't think so as that's just another year we're behind heading in the right direction. Of course that schedule is a gauntlet and any challenge to any team, but I think the expectations with that schedule would be an 8-4 or 9-3 season is pretty damn good considering how tough it is. Of course we'll all want to be competitive in every game, but I think we all realize there is about zero way we would go undefeated or win 10 or 11 games with that schedule. 

 

If we do hire a new head coach whoever that is needs to understand what we have here right now for players. Meaning they need to be flexible with what they're trying to do and understand that it might take some slow turning of the ship to get it headed in the right direction. Don't be stubborn and try and take a throwing QB and run him in a zone read offense as an example or vise versa. Work with what you have, recruit what you need, slowly turn it that way.

If you're going to fire your coach then fire him. It's not fair to the coaches, players, or fans to keep a coach another year knowing he'd be fired at the end of the year regardless.

The Frost haters will tell you that UCF wasn't that bad when he got there...even though they went 0-12

 

Someone asked about a new offense and having to go play Michigan next year...well Frost took his new offense to Michigan last year and if I remember correctly the offense did okay.

 

I would rather buy early with Frost than I would miss out.  They are not just beating teams right now...they are f'ing them up

The new AD won't be doing his job if he doesn't go after Frost, but if Frost turns NU down I wouldn't mind seeing Wisconsin AHC / OC / O-Line coach Joe Rudolph get the job.

I guess I like Frost because I see him as our best chance for long term stability.  When Riley was hired, many people were commenting that he would retire after 5-6 years, then we would go after Frost if he showed potential.  Well, it looks like that timeline has been cut a short.   It's very possible it's our last shot at Frost.

 

Sure it would probably take Frost a couple of years to show results, but I would hope (maybe unrealistic) that the fan base would be patient.    I think stability is what we need most right now.

I honestly don't think that was the thought process.  If it was, Eichorst wouldn't have been fired.  If we don't hire Frost between now and the bowl games, we will never have another opportunity unless he busts at Tennessee.

If Frost continues to have the success he is currently having, he will be a very hot commodity.  Took over a 0-12 team, goes 6-7 with a bowl victory and in year 2 ranked in the top 20.....All of this with another guys players or his VERY young guys with one full year in his system....and an offense that in 2015 was dead last....

 

If the new AD wants Frost, the feelers need to go out now and get ready to get into a bidding war.

 

Here is a great quote from UCF's DC, Erik Chinander, a guy I'm pretty sure Frost will ask to come along:  Sounds nothing like "bend don't break"....

 

In general terms, Chinander envisions using "multiple" schemes that shift between three- and four-down linemen and brings pressure. 

"In this day and age of the way offensive football is going, the way to win games on defense is sacks plus turnovers minus explosive plays," he said, according to the Sentinel. "We want to get the ball back in these guys' hands as much as possible, so we have to be aggressive, we have to take some chances."

I know who is spreading this around and who is pretending to have confirmed it. The guy pretending to confirm it is not an insider at all. I know his username on another board and he went to Scout and is pretending to be an insider. 

 

So many people pretend to know exactly what is taking place - who the AD is, who the AD is not, Riley is fired, Riley is not fired, Frost telling people no, Frost telling people yes, and so much more. They always end up being wrong. Why? Because they don't have real information.

Hell, some people in the know end up being wrong. When I was in sports journalism, we had several sources with extensive access/knowledge of the inner workings of the program, and they would sometimes disagree. That's why we would never go with it until we had two sources tell us the same thing.

Agree with your list and analysis.

 

I would add Matt Campbell at Iowa State. He's done a heck of a job in my opinion. I'd have him at around no. 3 or 4 on my board of persons to call/interview.

No matter the coach we really need to give the guy all the resources then push him to go out and build a top flight staff. No more bringing your buddy along for the ride. We need a great HC but more importantly I think we need great assistant coaches. They are so vital to success.

So if Scott brings most of his staff with him from UCF, you won't be happy? I would rather the coach works with people he is comfortable with rather than a bunch of guys you do not have much experience with. I think Scott will bring who he needs to and probably keep Parella and one Williams, the rest of the will not be here. What will people say if Scott doesn't make changes after a certain position group is lacking? Will people trust the process or will they go back to the old he needs to get rid of his buddies despite the fact he is trying to work with people he trusts to win.

You say this but no one affords Riley that kind of benefit of the doubt. Has going this route worked out for us in the past? You see other big programs going out and getting the best assistants they can and it works for them. I think we shouldn't settle for UCFs guys or even the Williams'. If we decide they are the best guy for the job great but if there are other coaches out there who would give us a better chance to win we should look into that.

Campbell is a solid coach and would recruit at a high level. He has a lot of energy, passion, and gets his players to play at a high level (talent is the limiting factor). 

 

My list:

 

1: Frost

2: Navy coach

3: Iowa State coach

4: Purdue coach

5: Others like the Utah coach

I really can't see us going for either of the triple option coaches - and can you imagine that transition? You're definitely looking at a true freshman/JUCO qb, if they got hired with enough time to find one. Lee, POB, and Gebbia would be gone in an instant (plus some receivers probably), and with DPE graduating I don't think we'd have even a high-school QB on roster. Maybe you convince a decent option qb to come here because he'd have no competition for the job. Besides that, I agree with the people saying teams with that offense have a ceiling. We obviously ran a lot of option but it was I-backs not wing backs, and not so much of the motion/deception. That being said, Spielman/Lindsey as wing backs would be pretty fun.

 

Frost seems almost inevitable whether Riley gets another year or not. I don't think he goes anywhere else this year because he's talked about wanting to build a program, but being able to rebuild your alma mater and get paid more has to be pretty tempting. But he can win at UCF, and there's a lot less pressure.

The Navy coach is never coming to Nebraska.  He had a chance to take over BYU and coach his son and decided to stick with Navy.  I think that speaks volumes.

 

If (and that's a big if) Riley gets another year I think Nebraska loses Bray and possibly Donte Williams to better offers.  Bray had a chance to take the DC job @ SJSU last year and decided to stay, with Riley essentially being a lame duck coach next year, I wouldn't be surprised to see him leave.  Williams strikes me as a hired gun which is great if you have him, however, he did leave Arizona after one year and I wouldn't be totally surprised to see him jump again.  There are probably going to be quite a few big time openings and you figure a guy like Williams who has a proven track record of recruiting at a high level is going to get courted pretty heavily.  Riley's precarious situation doesn't exactly give a vote of confidence.  

 

Also, Cav probably gets shown the door as well.  Again, how difficult will it be to get a top flight O Line coach if he knows that there is a good that he's going to get let go if Riley gets fired?  

 

Man, this situation is a mess.

The mere fact that he took some serious thoughts about leaving Navy to take that BYU job shows that he would take a new job. If he had no interest he wouldn't have even taken the time to go and interview for that job. He was very close to taking that BYU job. 

 

He was also a candidate for the Cal job. 

 

The Navy coach is one of the best coaches in the country and he is going to get P5 offers AGAIN. Oregon State is the one that is open right now and his name has come up as a person that they will look at.

I think the only reason Niumatalolo strongly considered leaving for BYU is due to his connection with the LDS faith.  I honestly think he'll be at Navy for his entire career.  Maybe he comes back to BYU at some point but that's the only other job I could see him considering.

You say this but no one affords Riley that kind of benefit of the doubt. Has going this route worked out for us in the past? You see other big programs going out and getting the best assistants they can and it works for them. I think we shouldn't settle for UCFs guys or even the Williams'. If we decide they are the best guy for the job great but if there are other coaches out there who would give us a better chance to win we should look into that. 

I will let Scott Frost handle who he wants to bring and will trust him over you and your big name hires. Yes we need to get the best coaches out there, but Scotts guys at UCF are winning and winning by large margins. His DC is an up and comer who would do wonders here for our defense. His O-line coach graduated from Nebraska and has him playing well. His O coordinator is doing a great job and the Associate head coach and special teams coordinator has done a good job. 

I am not saying that all of his assistants should come here, because they won't, but outside of one williams and parella he will bring his guys with him. I would say he brings 6 out of his 9 assistants at Ucf and brings two or three other outside or bigger name hires with him.

Coach Frost has a good coaching staff. Defensive coordinator is all about making plays and not the old days of bend but don't break bull crap. He wants to get the ball back for the offense.

My top two choices right now are Shaw and frost. Throw a ton of money at shaw and see what happens. I think frost is good choice too, just not convinced he wants to come here

99% sure that Frosty will be our coach next yr and we can celebrate again.

 

However, if by some freak event of Nature that doesn't happen, I really like that Navy HC, Niamatalolo- and his option attack, would be perfect @ NE.  He's a damn good coach too.

Of course Shaw would be great, but they'd have to pay him Harbaugh $ to even consider it.  Stanford is a better gig than NU a these days.

Stanford has those pesky admission standards though, maybe he wants to see what he can do without them. The university has the money, time to pony up
