  1. I’m guessing he’s probably taken his final snaps as a Husker. Genuinely bums me out he never really got to experience a marquee win.

  2. First, I understand everyone’s frustration. I’m sick of losing these games too. Here’s another perspective I think is important to consider. I learned that if we had hired Mel Tucker, and signed him to a 10 year deal, people on this board would have been calling for his head after yesterday’s pathetic performance. I learned that the coach in Ames isn’t the right replacement, because they’re 6&4 in his 4th year. I learned that the coach at Wake Forest isn’t the answer because he can’t beat Clemson in a down year. I learned that Coastal Carolina’s offensive coordinator isn’t the answer, because they could only muster 35 points against a terrible Texas State team. Here’s a hard pill to swallow for many on this board: Since 1970, only 13 teams have been able to stay within 9 points of their opponents in every game: 70, 71, 79, 80, 82, 83, 93, 94, 95, 97, 99 & 2021 (so far). Those are some great teams! Best in our history. You don’t do that with a “broken offense”. There may only be one schedule in those 12 other years that was this tough… maybe. This team didn’t quit on their coach like many of you have. The D held another team to under 400 yards. The offense put up another 400+ yard performance against another great defense and looked like it wasn’t missing 4 coaches. The system isn’t broken, the player development was. 4 new coaches who can develop their players 3/4 as well as Sean Beckton has put this 2021 team at 10 wins or better. Frost’s problem isn’t his system. The yards are there to prove that. It’s his loyalty. Loyalty to friends who couldn’t develop players on the offensive side of the ball. Adrian is a good QB who makes the same mistakes in year 4 as he did in year 1. You can’t expect to win when your QB averages more than 1 turnover a game. The oline is young and undeveloped. Running backs looked better yesterday than in the previous games, and they weren’t our best players at the position. Special teams has given up 44 points this season. The team has lost by a combined 49 points. The stadium is full every weekend… can you say the same for every top 25 program? Camp Randle looked pretty bare in spots yesterday. As did most of the games I watched yesterday across the country. Fan disappointment is real. Fan apathy? Not even close. We’ve never experienced that, and we never will, because we have the best damn fans on the planet. Frost IS the right guy, he’s still a young coach and he’s got a lot to learn. His team did something this season that hasn’t been done since the glory days. They don’t have the record to show for it, but the point difference tells a huge part of the story. If they stay within 9 of Iowa… that’s progress on defense. A few players developed on offense, and a special teams coach and look out 2022 and beyond.

  10. You don't have a clue dude. Just go home. A flexbone offense would get absolutely eaten alive in the B1G and it will never win anything of significance in this league. It's idiotic to think it would. We are the 5th ranked offense in the B1G for total yards behind Wisconsin, Michigan, Minnesota, and Ohio State in that order. We're one of the best big play teams in the country, but we're 12th in scoring offense in the B1G. The overall scheme is solid. What we need is a quality Oline coach, a RB coach, and better special teams. That's been the difference in every loss.

  13. I'm a diehard Buckeyes fan and have been since I could remember anything growing up in farm country in Ohio. Ohio State football is in my blood. I just watched the Nebraska vs Iowa game and was rooting for the Huskers. It's been a very tough season for you all. But don't give up . Nebraska football will come back. Buckeye fans can see it. There are several things that come to mind when I think of Nebraska football that I can remember going way back to the days of Tom Osbourne. One - you are absolutely great fans and are at the top of CFB in that respect. That's key for any team to return to winning. Two - you have a remarkable tradition that all CFB programs admire. That foundation is critical. Three - you did make progress this year. Yes your record is not at all where you'd like to see it but this season the team proved for sure it can compete anywhere with anyone in the country. That included some very tough road games where even the best teams in the country would find it difficult to win. That is progress. You had no loss greater than 9 points and look at who you played - Oklahoma, TTUN, MSU, Wiscy, Iowa, Minnesota and OSU. That is a GAUNTLET. Fourth - Coach Frost is a diehard Husker who has proven he can win as a player and as a Head Coach. Remember and you would have to say he inherited a very, very tough situation. It takes years to bring stability to a struggling program. Fifth - The Big Ten and CFB is better when Nebraska is playing great football. Keep The Faith Husker Fans! You Will Come Back!

  14. It only gets better if Frost 1000% turns over the play calling and scheme to a proven OC. Yea Smothers put the ball on the ground and we had a blocked punt. But Frost 100 percent crapped his pants calling plays in this game.

  18. So Moos hired the "NCAA Coach of the Year" in the middle of an undefeated season that went on to beat an SEC team in a major bowl while recruiting for NU at the same time. With ties to an Oregon program that changed offenses in college football. A born and raised Nebraska kid. Learned under Walsh, Osborne, and many other HOF coaches. He checked every box. There is zero evidence at the time that would say Moos made a "bad hire". None. Frost probably won't be the Husker coach a year from now. But to say he was a bad hire is disingenuous at the least and sour grapes at the most...

  20. I'll add the Tad Stryker article here...Another honest, yet painful read about the miscues by Frost. https://www.si.com/college/nebraska/football/iowas-blocked-punt-td-prompts-frost-to-abandon-running-game-in-late-collapse Frost said the Huskers’ momentum disappeared after the blocked punt, and I agree, but it’s largely because Frost panicked and needlessly erased Jaquez Yant from the game plan. Ironically, Frost, who had done a great job scripting Smothers’ role in the game, got way off script after his midfield fumble early in the fourth quarter with the Huskers still leading 21-16. Yant rushed for 44 yards on 13 carries with one touchdown, yet Frost erased him. It was a huge unforced error, and it put needless pressure on Smothers, who to that point, had done a better-than-expected job in his debut as a starter. The Blackshirts stepped up and forced a three-and-out, and the Hawkeyes punted the Huskers back to their 7-yard line. At that point, Frost decided to roll the dice, shut down the running game and depend on the offensive line’s ability to pass block, the thing it is worst at doing. It quickly led to a two-point safety, closing the gap to 21-18. And after that, in the final 10 minutes of the game, Frost inexplicably called only two more running plays. Why?

  21. Here is a little data for you to consider. Now I added this up looking at the play by play so I could be off by a number here or there but the overall trend still applies. In the first half we ran 32 plays and in the second half we ran 34 plays. Pretty even number of total plays. Here is the breakdown by half: First half: 27 run and 5 pass plays scoring 14 points and no turnovers Second half: 14 run and 20 pass plays scoring7 points and 2 turnovers The running game was working in the first half and Iowa did not have an answer for it. We ran the ball 84% of the time and were mixing it up. In the second half we ran the ball only 41% of the time, and after we scored the touchdown early in the 3rd quarter to go up 21-6, our run/pass ratio went down to 28% runs and 72% passes. These play calls happened when we had a lead and simply needed to protect that lead with a QB starting his first game.

  22. Watching the presser he talks about all the snafus. None of his own actions. He says that the blocked punt killed them. Tells me we could go back to 2018 and our first loss and have this same conversation. no personal accountability. Poor clock management, poor play calling, penalties, blown assignments, no player development and a continued (bordering on criminal) lack of giving 2 sh!ts about special teams. ST has cost us multiple games alone this season. Lastly, I do not know how Trev doesn't fire Frost. Year 4 and he still has no answers. He is not P5 HC caliber guy.

  23. Stats are for losers. The only stat that matters is the score, and we've averaged 23 points per game against FBS competition under Frost. That's NOT a solid scheme. In fact, that SUCKS. You don't know what a flexbone offense would do against the B1G. Army has done well against both Michigan and Wisconsin with a FRACTION of our talent, so you literally couldn't be MORE wrong. This scheme in Lincoln has never won anything of significance. We're one of the worst teams in the conference. A doormat. It's idiotic to want to continue doing the same crap that has gotten us here.

  25. As am I, but it's not offensive play calling or our QBs. Do you even know what you're talking about? We run the ball almost 60% of the time. Get a clue man. Nobody is running flexbone here.

  27. Adrian wasn't perfect. However, if he was working behind Wisconsin's O line and had Iowa's special teams, he would have won one hell of a lot more games and would be looked at very different by a lot of fans.

  28. I saw a post on Twitter after the Wisconsin game which showed that Nebraska has only led for ~10% of the game time in the 8 losses this year. The game which NU led the most was Purdue. For all of the talk that NU is "so close" to having a much better record, IMO this shows me that NU isn't as close as most fans think. Consistently playing from behind is not a good recipe for success.

  29. "I was against the Frost hire from the beginning" is a heck of a thing to state TODAY, especially when you can go back to when Frost was hired and read what people actually said.

  30. What's kind of funny about boasting about our strength of schedule is our wins are against Buffalo, Frothingham, and Northwestern. We played tough games, sure, but does it really matter if we lost em all? It's not like we're jockeying for postseason positioning.

  32. I learned that if Frost was a man, his post game press conference after this commercial break would be him saying, he is resigning for the good of the program and waiving his buyout clause. He wants the program to return to it's former glory and clearly he isn't the one to lead the team there. Take responsibility, show some class. That's what I want to hear. Not some BS about a close game, the refs...none of it. Just contrition, acceptance and admit he is in way over his head. He just isn't capable of effectively coaching at this level.

  40. Wow. He's been beat up from the feet up. Glad he will be wise, and rest and sit this one out. Personally and selfishly, I will miss seeing him out there. SR day and Iowa. I've always been on his side since day 1. But he just can't go, and it's completely understandable.
