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 is better gig because he is the coach there.  NU will be the better gig if he came here and built us back up.   Frost and Shaw are my top 2 choices wt the Navy coach not far behind. I think any coach worth their salt would love to be the coach responsible for returning a traditional power back to being that power.   I think  that is what is overlooked in these discussions. Coaches by their very nature are deeply competitive (except smiling MR doesn't appear that way on the side lines at times) and they don't shy away from challenges - at least the young ones don't shy from them.   Some think Scott won't take the job because recruiting is so easy in Florida and golf time is so plentiful - (you can recruit and golf all in the same day!).  However, that casts a negative shadow on the typical great coach personality type - driven by challenge.  Challenge is the only way we can grow as individuals.  Scott is too young not to desire to grow.  Maybe Stoops (very successful) and Mike Riley (content wt status quo) have reached that threshold where they can rest on their laurels but not Frost.  18 years ago a company offered me 2 positions - one in a functional area I had mastered and had been in for many years and one in a functional area that I knew a small bit about but would have been a huge challenge - and the previous manager had driven off most of the staff in that functional area.  I chose the most challenging position and the one that forced me to grow.  Because of it, some 18 years later, I've become a recognized professional in the field as our trade organizations has used me to train others and used my insight in articles in their trade publications.  This isn't to lift me up  but to say by example that we grow by taking on challenging roles and stretching ourselves to be better and do better in more difficult situations.  I have to believe that Frost could see the challenge of the situation as a greater motivation than having easy recruiting and golf nearby.  He is a driver - he's taken on the challenge of UCF and is winning that challenge.  Perhaps he will see the challenge of NU and also the reward of turning around a program that had rewarded him during his playing days.

Much easier to recruit to Stanford, because:  West Coast.  Better school too.  Better climate.

 

Frosty would be so perfect @ NU it's ridiculous.  I can't see him saying "no".  The Navy guy and his patented triple option makes me salivate some, though--old school here.  The pro/west coast offense I am coming to think is too hard to install on the college level, takes the players 3-4 years to get any good at it if they even do so and by then they are gone and you start all over again.

 

Nebraska should be all about the run.

 

(Good on you re: your career.)

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

Didnt Shaw play @ Tree?  I think he has a particular commitment to the school.  The only thing that might get him to leave there is if he studies the fault line sitting directly under the Bay Area(and directly under UCal stadium).  That place is gonna blow....  Of course NE is supposed to be under massive amounts of volcanic ash soon, they say...

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. 

 

 

 

Thats the right attitude for a D.  Fiasco's bendy and breaky concept is garbage.

With Alberts not wanting the job, we'd either have to get an alum or a non-alum who listens to get Frost. We all know what happened last time we got an AD who didn't listen to anyone.
