    The players got done dirty by whoever (Trev, admin, boosters) made the decision to bring back Frost for 2022. They only have a few years here and this one was wasted.


    I think it’s safe to assume a competent staff would have us on 5 wins right now.

    i blame this year on Trev, stupid decisions everywhere. Clean house!!

    Michigan by 30 points.

    I am not against Mickey, but his lack of head coaching experience concerns me. I think your thought process on hiring him, especially after 4 games as the Interim Head Coach is a bad thought process.

    recruits won't suddenly jump ship without good reason, to follow an impulsive coach.

    Good coaching can’t overcome lack of talent. Really both are necessary. 

    The previous regime did pretty well recruiting. They weren’t particularly good s developing. Some areas better than others. And in often cases couldn’t retain the talent.


    A successful head coach will have assistants and support staff that can identify and develop talent. The staff assembled is integral to his building the program. 

    staff, really important.

    That’s absurd. If Mickey does well and he goes and hires a mediocre coach he will have a mutiny on his hands from the players and the fans. 

    we shall see, MJ was not on anyones HC list, maybe he needs more seasoning?

    This is water under the bridge and we all know how Mike Riley turned out, but at the time the hiring was certainly defensible. Mr. 50% actually had a similar record to Frank Solich at Ohio, coaching at the least desirable University in the Pac 12 where he turned the program around and occasionally outcoached guys like Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh. He won a Pac 12 Coach of the Year, and in 2015 had just been voted second most underrated coach in college football by his peers. Over the years Riley had been courted by Alabama and USC. He rarely came up on candidate lists because he'd turned those jobs down to stay in his hometown Corvallis. The recruiting services thought hiring Riley was a coup. Other coaches and former NFL players sent their kids to Nebraska because of Riley. 


    Word is Eichorst approached Brett Bielema first, so going with Mr. Nice Guy wasn't the first priority, either. 


    If you go back and look at the coaching hires of 2015, you'll find a lot of the coaches you think we wanted no longer with their program, either. 


    Given that there are rarely more than three or four no-brainer choices for Head Coach -- and they're already highly compensated elsewhere -- that transformational head coach is a bit of a crapshoot. 

    so true, most of the proven coaches are set, back to a crap shoot on a new HC, no one wants a dumpster fire.

    I'm not going to predict or think about wins for the rest of the season.  As others have said, the team is an absolute dumpster fire.  I don't think Mickey and the rest of the remaining staff will be able to make much of a difference, mainly because this program is broken right now.  The only saving grace is that the Big Ten West is really bad, and NU also plays two average Big Ten East teams.  

    MJ got here just in time for the implosion.  any new coach will only come with his own guys.

    no desire to enter a toxic atmosphere as HC?

  7. i am sure we will lose some players over this now.

    lots of guys will transfer, going to be ugly.


    Chin kept us close last season, now he hits the road with Frosty.

    Trev on thin ice now, chickens headed for home.

    This shows me that Mickey and Trev really feel the guys on this team can do much better now. If that is the case, no sense in waiting. If they can salvage any improvement at all this season then it’s a win. Got nothing to lose at this point. Total rebuild engaged.

    Trev pulling the strings now, MJ and new DC will simply be along for the ride.

    survival, not rebuild.
