  1. Did anyone say he was being hired only for his recruiting chops? Make no mistake, though, it's his "recruiting chops" that got him the offer.
  2. Hes a DB coach. Not a head coach or coordinator. Them being 3-9 has nothing to do with him. I disagree with your premise (that positions coaches have nothing to do with record), but agree that he's not responsible for 3-9, if for no other reason than he was only hired to Arizona this year. But there is something to be said in that he's never been part of a winning culture, as far as I can tell. San Jose St was terrible while he was there, for example. In the end, he's being hired because he's supposed to be a great recruiter - will be interesting to see if he can pull kids to NU as well as he seems to have pulled to Arizona during a partial recruiting cycle. I find it interesting that some here are not eviscerating him for lasting less than a year at Arizona - essentially bailing on his commitment there. Personally, I have not much problems with a coach jumping, especially if the players/recruits are able to bail, too, if needed.
  3. They could within the paradigm of the market. If NU wanted to pay coordinator money for him to be a position coach, they may let him go. On the flip side, not just money may hold him in Arizona. His recruiting on the west coast is easier to maintain on a P12 team. And for junior assistants, picking a region/conference has an enormous impact on career geographic trajectory. He may decide he wants to stay in the west/southwest rather than transition to the B10 country. I've not read his full bio though.
  4. If we really wanted him Arizona couldnt keep up with us in the $$$ department.Not sure that's true. Every P5 program has a ton of revenue. http://sports.usatoday.com/ncaa/finances/ With 10% of this coming from the academic side at U of A. The athletic department itself doesn't have the money Nebraska does and there's no way they are asking for a bigger subsidy to increase an assistant coaches salary.Hey, cm is never wrong. All p5 programs make the same amount money. All p5 programs can pay as much as every other one to their coaches. Just look, all p5 programs coaches make the the same amount. Resisting the urge to call you out on your foolish conclusion jumping.
  5. I thought it was common knowledge how to distinguish between P5 schools and non-P5 schools. Guess that's why common knowledge is said to be an oxymoron.

The athletic department itself doesn't have the money Nebraska does and there's no way they are asking for a bigger subsidy to increase an assistant coaches salary.It's not clear why the subsidy is set up that way (maybe a tax structure?) but per the chart (from what I can read on my phone), Arizona's revenue outpaces expenses by $8mm. Which appears to double nebraska's "profit margin."

  8. Seems like a good move for both teams. NU gets a good recruiter per the recruitniks (hard to tell since he hasn't been in CFB or with any specific team for very long) who has relationships with specific targets. Williams puts a big name program on his resume, which is key for a young coach.
  9. Read in context, that's not what epley said.
  10. Not to mention how little we threw deep over the middle. Seemed the read was always fly route up boundary. TA looked good on a couple of deep crossing patterns. But we don't throw a post much.
  11. Has it ever been verified what the hangup has been with Frost? I recall hearing somewhere that he got into it pretty badly with TO after the 96 ASU game. I also recall hearing that he was interviewed or at least contacted when Bo was here for OC. Apparently he wanted Head Coach in waiting status and Bo wasn't having it. Again, that's all hearsay, no way to truly verify it. Can anyone shed any light on the Frost-NU relationship? TO and frost are on great terms. I think the timing was wrong in '10, but I question whether that convo ever happened. What is benning and frosts relationship? Does benning like frost as a coach? I wonder what he thinks of frost considering timing of their time in the program and Bennings relationship with LP. I think benning often lets his personal feelings and need to be perceived as having "inside information" influence how he reports. This sort of unsubstantiated public claim is just one example of many.
  12. As a slashing back with more top end speed than any of our last few backs, had he played in a spread, you'd have likely thought of him differently. Would love to see him get a shot in the NFL, and I think he will.
  13. I'm not really seeing how this is a meaningful metric, especially when applying a standard deviation.
