  1. It's not about the defense getting better. It's about removing people that are poisoning the culture of the program. If Mickey's firing someone, it's because keeping them on board would do more damage than letting them go.

  2. Frost is the worst head coach in the modern times of NU football. I'm not sure how much worse we can get.

  3. The next DC absolutely has to get rid of the garbage celebrations when their QB misfires an open receiver and our DBs celebrate like Neon Deion that we just broke up the play when we are down by 3 scores already.

  4. Did I ever tell you about the time Scott Frost showed up at my daughter’s wedding? You know my daughter, she’s a beautiful girl. Well, Frost shows up and you know he’s a big fella. Well, he’s standing right between me and my daughter at the ceremony. He’s got no right to be there, but he’s drunk and he’s Frost. Well, long story short, the priest accidentally marries me and Frost. We spend the weekend in the Poconos — he loved me like I’ve never been loved before.

  6. We were going to go 1-11 with Frost at head coach. It was the right move. The only better move would have been moving on last season.

  7. Yes I am concerned about it because it speaks to a s#!tty undisciplined culture. It’s like “hey look at me” when you have been getting your a$$ kicked the whole game. No good teams do this garbage, not even at the high school level.

  8. Stopped by to wish you well on your new search. I thought Frost was a home run for your program. Your program and teams have always been classy. They're great representatives of your university. I have endured almost 2 decades of irrelevance because UT could neither fire, nor hire, the right coach. There was much infighting inside the administration, boosters, and the athletic department. I hope we finally have someone who can at least get and keep us competitive. I hope your coaching search goes better. I hope you don't wander in the wilderness for years. It isn't easy to find the right coach. So much has to come together in a short amount of time. Even good coaches have to show results at breakneck speeds compared to 20 years ago. Saban has skewed expectations for quick and unparalleled sustained success. Go find a proven winner. Get better and return to the where you belong in the world of college football. Good luck. Go Vols.

  9. Simple. Anybody that is not named Urban. Since Trev explicitly stated character as #1 in what he was looking for in the new coach that automatically rules out Meyer from the get go. And he is the only coach on the planet capable of turning this ship around. The Meyer mob knows exactly who Trev is considering and are none too happy with the choices he has made since anybody not named Urban less than or equal to Mike Riley by default. Regardless of their record or the programs they may have rebuilt through the years. In their eyes Trev is now on the hot seat and may not make it to Thanksgiving in which case their approved replacement can then name Urban as head coach (regardless if wants to come here or coach again at all).

  10. Because Davison was part of the problem of why Frost wasn't successful at NU. They were more interested in partying at Gate 25 then they were about running a successful football program.

  12. Had to log back in, reset the password to comment here. It’s been a very long time. Here is a different take on a couple of things guys have said: 1. Trev did the right thing by giving Frost a chance. Last year at this time we all believed the defense was getting better and most of us believed it would be good going forward. The issue was our stale offense. Trev and Frost knew a change was needed. They made the change and brought in some great coaches, dropping the friend group that Frost brought with him. 2. Many fans, including most of the Husker fans I know (full disclosure - me included), were still not quite ready to give up on “the chosen one”. Maybe that’s because of the water we drink in Western Nebraska. It’s pure KoolAid. When did that “fire Frost” switch flip for me? It was during the 3rd QTR of the Northwestern game this year. When did that change for the majority of Husker fans I know? 3/4 of them (most of the town) said it was after NW as well. The remainder were onboard with a change after Georgia Southern. I only know of a couple people who wanted to keep Frost after the Sun Belt sunburn. 3. If you don’t care about the culture from 30 years ago, you’re missing a big piece of what makes Nebraska different. That culture is more than just the team, it’s the pride that comes from being a Huskers fan. It’s what keeps the stadium full during this drought this team has been in. Those saying they don’t care about what players think from 30 years ago agree with how Callahan ran the program. That’s mind boggling to me. If you don’t care about those players opinions, you shouldn’t care about their accomplishments either. If you don’t care about their accomplishments, then why are you here? 4. Frost has earned the ridicule after the firing. He was protected, and now there is a lot of smoke. Most of us wanted it to work, but it didn’t, and it’s 100% on Scott. I could care less what the media has to say, but the former players… that’s important when they’re all singing the same tune. Steve Taylor is a well respected guy. He’s saying there was something way off. Tommie tried to say it a couple years ago, and he got ridiculed for having a vendetta against Frost. It turns out he was right. Regardless of what you believe about Frost, it’s clear this mess has only gotten worse. Carriker summed it up best yesterday on his latest YouTube post “How bad of shape did Scott Frost leave this program? He talked about how bad of shape Riley left the program in; I think he’s left it in way worse shape.” That’s a hard pill to swallow for a lot of us, but the record speaks for itself. 5. To the Urban Meyer brigade, what makes you think that players would even trust him now? From the tone deaf Doyle hiring, to the constant run-ins with staff/players at Jacksonville, why would a top tier kid want to play for him now? I wouldn’t want my kid playing for a guy like that, especially at a rebuilding program where he will likely be more frustrated. Urban can work when he takes a consistently winning program to the next level. He’s a polisher, not a builder. He’d be extremely frustrated at UNL. He’s a narcissist and a culture killer if a winning culture isn’t already established. Urban is not an Osborne or a Saban. Trev would be tone deaf to make that hire. He’s not. 6. Full circle - Trev understands the program. He will be our best shot in a long time at understanding who to hire. He is not a Steve Peterson or Shawn Eekworst (intentional). He’s also not a drunk with a ranch in Montana. That’s my take. Agree, disagree; we all want success for our team. I’m glad Scott is now gone. I wanted it to work, but it didn’t. I was tired of quoting Townie, “Oh no, we suck again!”

  13. You folks who want Urban Meyer, I assume you didn't watch the second half of the game when he came in to cover for Gus? Because he laid out pretty clearly the rebuild he thought necessary for the Nebraska job. Nothing about what he said sounded like a job he ever had, or ever wanted.

  17. I love how he goes out of his way to say several times that he didn't get anything for it, and that they don't really want to know this stuff, they are just doing their job but apparently he just got too much into it and all of the sudden he was just blurting things out. And, yeah, he was exaggerating about things that he doesn't have any actual knowledge of but just ignore that part and believe him that the the basis of it (that he doesn't have any actual knowledge of and didn't bother talking about until now) is really what you need to take away from all that. Bulls#!t. You like to make a name for yourself so you go do an interview where you make stuff sound as juicy as you can. Then you realize you screwed up and now you're trying to walk it back and act like you're just here to tell us what you know. Again, that doesn't mean that there isn't anything to any of it. But he is such a clown. The Nebraska version of Colin Cowherd.

  19. I'm gonna go on my own little "rant" here. Some of the gossip and rumors about Frost may or may not be true. I'm going to choose to not believe any of it without further evidence. As some posters have stated above, of course Frost's firing was about wins and losses. Is it possible that personal habits and personal issues contributed to a culture that has led to so many losses? Sure. Is it likely that Frost was simply in over his head and was not capable of a job of this magnitude? Obviously. Is it likely that he stopped caring, decided to slack off, and agreed to take a lot less money if the writing was already on the wall? I don't buy that. Of course he cared, he had more blood sweat and tears in this program than just about anyone. The simple answer is that Scott Frost tried and he failed. I'm not angry about it, I'm just sad. In comparison, I am still angry at Bill Callahan, because he tossed away so many of our old traditions and identities. I am still angry at Mike Riley (or at least at Eichorst for hiring him), because Riley never even deserved a shot at this job and never should have been here. But Scott Frost? Of course he deserved the shot. He belonged here. He not only recognized NU's history and traditions, but he was born into it, he lived it, and he delivered it as a player. He is the guy we all wanted when the time came. His shot was well-deserved, and it is absolutely horrible that it worked out the way that it did. But bashing him now, spreading unverified rumors, attacking his character...all unnecessary. It wasn't just the losses? No, the losses were enough. Oh, and now Benning knows some dirt? F**k off. This was Benning's teammate. Frost was the guy handing Benning the ball in the Orange Bowl in what I think was Benning's only start after being a career backup. Frost embodies Nebraska more than Damon Benning ever has or will, and Frost was far more successful in the football business than Benning ever was, despite Frost's failures as head coach at Nebraska. I'm not even defending Frost's character. I don't know what the man has or hasn't done in his personal life. But I think it is time to leave him alone. Tearing down Frost on a personal level is a bad look for anyone doing it. It doesn't make any of us better, it doesn't help the program, and it doesn't help us heal. Let's move on from Scott and see what Mickey can do.

  22. Deion even being seriously discussed is frankly comical, particularly in comparison to someone like Dave Aranda, whose laundry list of accomplishments as a defense coordinator and head coach at the FBS level dwarfs anything Deion has done as a college coach. If you want to be an off season punch line and make a splash hire, yeah... Deion will do that for ya.

  27. heres my take.... Matt campbell would be a bad fit. his style to impact the lives of players (build good men) and win some games along the way.. that will not play with nebraska fans. this fanbase is over the cultural and improving of lives players. winning is all that matters now. offer urban meyer 10+ million/year. would be DUMB not to. the dude just wins. morally and ethically he is fairly bankrupt but the fans do not care and the media wouldn't report on it anyways. any hire other than meyer is second teir.

  31. More disappointing revaluations coming out. Felt betrayed by Frost and other decisions need to be made about people who are "toxic down there". Mind boggling and can't comprehend they haven't been tackling in practice. As always, ST is measured, well spoken and a true Husker.

  34. Obviously there’s a lot of posts about Frost being fired and not enough discussion about Mickey being named interim. The first black HC at DONU! This is a historic day for the football program. I for one am extremely excited to see what he can do. He’s an excellent recruiter, something this program needs. I think we will see the players play hard for him. He’s a players coach. If he’s capable of taking us to a bowl, I think he’s made a case to at least remain on staff with the next HC ala Shawn Watson-Pelini. What do you guys think?

  36. Mickey seems pretty comfortable in his presser stating that the rest of the season is his job interview, which by the way he got an extra $100k to complete the season as interim HC. I've never been paid for a job interview, maybe got a free meal. And despite his saying he doesn't like the press attention, his straightforward answers to questions and calm demeanor during so much of a sh!##y situation and speculation surrounding the program, has just in itself earned him my respect. So I'm going to let him coach, and accept that whatever his outcome is, its the best we were ever going to do in 2022 with the cards he was dealt, and try to look forward. Whether or not it's hcMJ or some other coach next year, we do owe Mickey some grace and gratitude for being willing to stand in the fire.

  44. I don't believe this is true. Sometimes people have the best intentions and are not capable. That doesn't mean they don't care. It means they are over their head. I believe he was over his head and it wasn't ever going to work. I think he's a coordinator that lacks the skills to successfully operate a large organization. It's a difficult job with a marginal success rate.
