  1. First paragraph: Completely off topic comments but here we go…you are forgetting how SE was hired behind TOs back to do the bidding of HP. Bo was caught on a hot mic saying what Rex Burkhead echoed - the fans deserted the team before one of the greatest comebacks in school history. Should Rex be condemned too? We are so soft to think that what someone says behind closed doors would be a fireable offense, to where we are today how fans are hoping the sellout streak ends. Fans are so fickle in what they want. For those who personally took offense to Bo’s comments, then maybe they were the ones who walked out or turned the tv off? I honestly can’t believe people defend SE over Bo in this position. Bo’s an a$$ but they had an agenda out for him, SE never attempted a relationship with him and always had a buffer to handle Bo, or was Bo lying about that on Bussin with Boys? What type of s#!t a$$ organization does that to an employee without having an agenda? This program is in a better place now than what Frost took over - zero doubt. He has screwed up, he’ll continue to screw up, and I didn’t expect him to burn the program down to rebuild, but that’s what occurred and now this program is a few tweaks away from turning the corner. It’s a few upgrades at key positions - Qb and a sack artist. It’s 1-2 years away from a developed OL - it would be disingenuous to suggest that the Big Ten is big boy football, but expect underclassman to play like seniors. Riley didn’t believe in working out and lifting, do you not see how much they can actually match up with an elite opponent or do we need to lose to OSU 63-3 again to remember how this team gives up in the 1st quarter? I say that rhetorically, not to be a jerk at your expense. I simply don’t see a fledgling P5 coach or another DC/OC to be the solution, nor understand why people would have the patience for a different coach, but not for Frost. It’s the same story for Husker fans since TO took over at the helm, it wasn’t the fans who kept him in Lincoln over moving on to Boulder. It’s a damn good thing a football guy first stuck with his guy.

  2. There are also a lot of examples of major programs constantly in the fire coaches every 4 years mode and they never get out of the hole because of constant change. Texas USC Tennessee Just to name a few. That is where we have been for the last 20 years. I'm willing to try a different route if that's what Trev decides.

  3. I think Ruud, for his lack of experience has done a better job at the ILB spot than Dawson with his guys. Unsure if I'd have a D staff on the short list TBH.

  4. Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has paid his first voter fraud bounty. It went to an unexpected recipient Nearly a year after offering up a hefty bounty for evidence of voter fraud in the wake of Donald Trump’s loss, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick has handed out his first reward. But instead of going to an informant who smoked out fraud by Democrats, Patrick’s five-figure payout went to a progressive poll worker in Pennsylvania whose tip led to a single conviction of illegal voting by a registered Republican. The unexpected outcome reveals the political dangers of cash bounties. With few strings attached, and more cases of alleged GOP voting fraud still in Pennsylvania courts, Patrick may be asked to shell out even more cash to his opponents. This case also undercuts unsubstantiated GOP concerns that widespread voter fraud helped hand the White House to Joe Biden, political experts said. In Pennsylvania, a state that was central in Trump’s attempts to overthrow the election, around five cases of voter fraud from last year’s election have been prosecuted, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer — four involved Republicans. In an interview with The Dallas Morning News, tipster Eric Frank said he would have turned in anyone he saw voting illegally regardless of party. But as the scion of a family of Democratic operatives, he also acknowledged the irony of the situation. This week, Frank deposited $25,000 of Patrick’s campaign cash into his bank account. “It’s my belief that they were trying to get cases of Democrats doing voter fraud. And that just wasn’t the case,” Frank said. “This kind of blew up in their face.” Patrick’s spokesman Allen Blakemore declined to comment.

  5. IMHO, there is enough evidence to show Frost hasn't and won't get it done. You keep him and get a new staff, then next year will be blamed on "new scheme", "new staff", "getting on the same page", "recruit class was off because of size/uncertainty" etc.......2023 will be a hard schedule, lost so many "leaders", new QB......

  6. Because if it has NEVER been done before what have you seen from Frost in 4 years that says "yeah, this guy has all the tools to fix this". If examples do not exist that this has EVER happened before why do we think Frost is the unicorn in the history of college coaching?

  7. why does everyone keep asking for examples of coaches turning around teams after 3 or 4 losing seasons? isnt it obvious that these coaches get fired after these losing seasons because the fans and administration dont fully understand what all is/was involved in improving the team?

  8. What gives you the hope that he can turn it around at this point? Do you know of other examples where coaches with a below.400 win percentage turned in around in year 5 and 6? Historically it would be the ultimate white buffalo. Do we think Frost has it in him to make us a conference title contender?

  9. I think with 2 more talented O linemen we would be a much better team. Giving AD 4 seconds instead of 2 would make a ton of difference getting our WR open. The coaches have to be tired of designing plays based on the inabilities of our O line.

  10. 1 or 2 away from what? Having a .500 record? Sure, I suppose. Sounds like a desperate coach trying to blame the players he recruited and coached up.

  11. Looks like coolers heads are starting going to prevail as more than 55% of the vote is for not firing Frost as it should be. There is definitely a group of people that just overreact to everything and just come on to the message boards to cry and rant. Nice to see a strong majority can think for themselves and be influenced by these individuals.

  14. Are they really that good? I haven't watched them, but can't imagine they'll be tougher than MSU on the road and we should have won that one. I guess I like our chances at home coming off the bye.

  15. And none of my three kids, who are all conservative, have come home complaining about liberal professors. Just another farce promoted by Republicans.

  16. When you realize that better special teams play could have won you a game, and a better offensive line could have won you a game, and a more sure-handed QB could have won you a game, and a better pass rush could have won you a game, and better red zone and fourth quarter playcalling could have won you a game, you realize it's not just a couple things keeping you from winning games. I have no idea how close we are, and can't imagine Scott Frost or any head coach saying his team's not close in front of a microphone. Reference point: I thought we were close only two weeks ago. Happy to readjust after the final four (or five) games are played. Pretty sure some changes will be in order either way.

  17. We don’t have a clear idea that I’m aware of. Frost says they both have input, but there’s got to be just one functioning as the primary. Otherwise it would be a complete CF. Sometimes it is, I guess and maybe that’s why. Too many cooks in the kitchen. I wish Frost would give the reigns to Lubick 100%.

  18. What? Do you remember how awful our OLB core was before he took over?? They have become much, much better. DeWitt was horrible

  19. Verdu and Austin need to go. The others are good in my opinion and have proven themselves...this move might wake Held up who may be feeling the heat as well. However, I just don't know if Frost will pull the trigger...loyalty seems to be a huge part for him and these guys were loyal to him coming up from UCF. Will definitely be an interesting off-season!!
