  1. Very true indeed. I just want Nebraska to be a good team again as the first step before we can worry about being great or elite.
  2. I don't think we need "Elite" talent to finish above .500 or be close to winning our division. As the link I shared as the start of this email, we have the highest ranked roster in the BIG West when you look over the past 5 years. I know we have lost players, but all teams are losing players, so I don't agree that our talent is the reason we have not been able to win more games or finish above .500. Northwestern is ranked 11th out of 14 in terms of 5-year talent average and look at what they have been able to accomplish. https://athlonsports.com/college-football/big-ten-footbal
  3. I agree with you Ulty. I think we all had really high expectations and now many of us will be excited if we can be above .500 in year 4.
  4. We have just finished signing the latest recruiting class and our turning our attention to the next season which will be Frost's 4th year in charge. Thus far Frost and Nebraska have done a good job leading the BIG West in recruiting when you look at the past 5 seasons as a whole. Athlon rates Nebraska as having the 4th most talented roster based upon who we brought into the classes. I realize all teams are losing guys to the transfer portal, but this is a positive sign that Nebraska continues to rank at the top or near the top in recruiting. https://athlonsports.com/college-fo
  5. If this means we do not play OSU for the next six years (except of course in the CCG) then I am ok with it
  6. This will be the 6th straight year that Nebraska faces Ohio State. Is that unusual for a team to play the same team in the opposite division 6 years in a row?
  7. Rhymes with Zero...what number would that be that rhymes with zero?
  8. I agree that since it doesn't appear Lubick did much this past season it may not be a huge loss, but it also would be another change for the offense. Now if Frost can go out and get a stud OC that may bring different ideas to the able, and Frost would empower the OC to run the ship, I think this could be a potentially good thing for the program. Who are some of the best offensive minds out there that we could bring in? Here is a list of the top 25 offensive play callers as of last fall. Some are obviously head coaches but others are coordinators. https://www.saturd
  9. I am actually unsure how much influence Lubick had this past season. It sounds like Frost ran the show until the final few games where Lubick was calling the plays.
  10. It sounds like OC Lubick is looking at an FCS head coaching position. It will be interesting to see if this works out for him.
  11. It's not the only measure of a team and I have provided other stats throughout the year beyond just W-L? Here is a link to average penalties per game which addresses some of the culture and mental toughness pieces. Nebraska is ranked 93rd. https://www.teamrankings.com/college-football/stat/penalties-per-game And I also have shared trends in offensive and defensive output and scoring differential. The defense has made decent improvements from the 2017 Riley-led team while the offense has gotten worse. I don't think this is breaking news of any kind.
  12. Sorry, but there was widespread discussion with Taylor Martinez as a freshman about his poor throwing motion. It was not after his injury. As for items where the team has improved vs regressed, in looking at it from the macro perspective, it is not a net plus. The fact that you choose to give Frost a pass is your decision but it does not negate the reality that this program is sideways at best after 3 years of Frost's leadership.
  13. I disagree that Frost has improved the team each year and I think that is why many fans are frustrated with him. We have seen some steady improvements on defense yet gone backwards on offense and special teams. He inherited a team that was 19-19 in the prior 3 seasons and was under .500 the year before Frost took over. We have continued to have sub-500 seasons under Frost. The record is not actually the thing that concerns me the most. It's the culture and continuous mental mistakes we have seen in nearly every game including too many penalties, botched snaps, turnovers and poor game manage
  14. This is a good post, and while I personally think Year 4 must be the year Frost turns the program around, you may be right that he will get a 5th year. With that said, I think it's important for Frost not to just get to a .500 season in Year 4 (or 5) but we really need to be a couple games above .500. I think the bar has gotten so low with this program that some may accept .500 as a great thing when in reality that should be the floor and only happen every great once in a while.
