  1. Who knows if there will even be a decent vaccine by early next year and how effective it will be? Nebraska should try to play this year if they legally can get out of the Big 10 for a season. I'd even take them taking Old Dominion's place in Conference USA or going back to the Big 12 rather than put up with the Big 10 delay tactics that may never result in play this coming season.
  2. Who will be calling the plays? That is one of my major concerns coming off last season.
  3. He was in a sophomore slump ALL season. Hopefully, he works on his tentativeness and seeing the whole field in the offseason. His biggest issues were mental mistakes this year.
  4. My biggest concern is when the game is on the line and all we need is a stop for OT or the win, can the defense be depended on? The answer right now is no. We had a 3rd string QB go in late and drive the length of the field on us. We had another team with 30 seconds left and multiple ref calls go against their team still get in FG range for the game winner.
  5. Most opposing fans hate Nebraska and take joy from it, particularly Big 10, Big 12, and AAC fans of certain schools. I'd like Nebraska to be bowl eligible like half this list. Sucks that it may be awhile before we ever get back to even Pelini levels of success.
  6. He'll be a 3rd day pick in the NFL draft after his senior season at best regardless of where he plays. He might as well stay and be a Husker record breaker.
  7. I still think Frost has a shot at turning things around, but only if he is willing to change. He probably needs a play calling OC, so he can be more of a CEO and focus on the little things like the miscommunication with special teams or other critical situations where players need to be aware of things they just can't be doing on a play. He also can't ride or die with certain players like Martinez. If it is pretty clear in the spring or summer that Martinez isn't going to be much better, he needs to get off his bandwagon fast as it is critical Nebraska gets off to a fast start next year wit
  8. A lot of people in McMurphy's comments are happy at Nebraska's failures. Seems like a lot of Hawkeye and Big 12 fans making comments.
  9. Matt Campbell went 8-5 in year 2 at Iowa State. They had 3 losing seasons before he got there. They don't get remotely as good as recruits as Nebraska.
  10. We have to stop teams on their last drives. Playing great for a couple of quarters doesn't mean anything if you collapse at the end. We scored a few times in the 4th against Purdue to take the lead, but then the defense collapsed twice. A 3rd string Indiana QB had a game winning drive. Iowa marched up the field even with calls that went against them with 30 seconds left.
  11. Scott didn't seem to make much adjustments this season. His excuse to not running I-formation more was that they didn't have enough plays for it. Well, make some more. Mills should have played more in the first half instead of all the swings and screens. Putting in a different QB wins us this game and the Purdue game likely. He doesn't seem to communicate well with his players so they know exactly what type of situation they are in like Martinez running out of bounds. He has to be told before the play that running out of bounds is not an option, but wasn't. If he had an OC that called t
  12. Probably not unless he goes like 3--9. If they don't get to at least 6 wins next year, I would can Moos before he can extend any more contracts longer. He seems like one of those guys that will do that again before his 5 years is up. It will be interesting to see if Frost can learn to adjust. His love for Martinez and his assistants may lead to his ultimate undoing. He seems to blame the talent more than his & his assistants' poor coaching. This team had enough talent to coast easily to 7 or 8 wins this year.
  13. Sounds like he didn't even bother to tell Martinez how to handle the situation late in the game. “I understand what he was thinking,” Frost said of his quarterback. “It’s hard for a player to probably go straight from ‘We’re going to score and win this game’ mode to getting a 15-yard penalty. I haven’t seen it yet, but that can’t happen. Maybe I could have used a timeout there to make sure the kids understood.”
  14. He was open for a 1st down when Martinez threw a pick.
