Rivals Roundtable: Reacting to a wild ride on the coaching carousel

Recommended Posts

Lots of props to Nebraska on the Frost hire, everyone trashes Tennessee for what they did.  

 

Quote

Adam Friedman: The answer here has to be either Jimbo Fisher to Texas A&M or Scott Frost to Nebraska. The Aggies have been dying to get over the hump to win the SEC West and Fisher knows how to build a program that can beat Alabama, Auburn and LSU. Nebraska needed one of its one to come back and return the program to glory. Frost is the guy to do just that.

 

Quote

Adam Gorney: Nebraska receives so much recruiting attention one might think the Huskers have had top-10 recruiting classes regularly over the last few years, during the Mike Riley era, but that’s not the case. Scott Frost has the stuff to change that - especially if the Huskers start winning right away. Frost has recruiting connections in the West and in Florida and he should do a great job in the Midwest as well. Chip Kelly at UCLA is a huge name and Willie Taggart is known as a fantastic recruiter but I think Frost can really get it going at Nebraska and the Big Ten West could get more interesting.

 

Quote

Nick Krueger: I think that Scott Frost to Nebraska has to be the pick here. Even if recruits on the West Coast haven't paid any special attention to UCF this season, they will all be impressed with Frost leading the team to an undefeated record this season. Nebraska is still a brand name in college football and it won't take much reminding to recruits about what it could mean for the program to bring it back to the level of prestige its fans expect. A young coach that has a résumé that will excite players is usually a pretty solid recipe for recruiting success - at least in the very short term - and should give the Huskers a shot in the arm that they are hungry for after a turbulent 2017 season.

 

Quote

Cassidy: Scott Frost brings the kind of offense Nebraska needs to kick start itself. If the Cornhuskers are never going to land a top five recruiting class, they’ll need to win with scheme, and Frost's high-powered offense is a proven commodity. Nebraska can get high-level talent with the right coach and Frost's offense will be even scarier with Power Five-level athletes. I think he’s going to win a lot of games in Lincoln.

 

Quote

Helmholdt: Nebraska with Scott Frost. Alum who grew up in the state on his way up in the profession after proving to be a heck of a ball coach. That's as good as it gets.

 

Quote

Simmons: I like the Nebraska hire. Scott Frost is a Husker and he knows what Nebraska football is all about. He has passion for the school, he is very innovative as a coach and he is going to bring life back to that program immediately.

 

Quote

Wommack: Scott Frost and Nebraska. It’s like this was a gift from the football gods for the long-suffering Huskers fans. Not only do you get an innovative offensive mind, but you also get a great recruiter and on top of it an alum who already has the full trust of the fan base.

How is it we're still not tired of talking about MR?  I figured I was in the majority of folks who just wanted to turn the page since 17-21 (score from when those DeKalb kids visited).

Let's hope Frost has better success here.

 

And ... lots of people noted that MR was always a .500 type coach.  Actually, a lot of us had to go to Google or Wiki to learn about who the hell this guy was.  A bit different for Frost all the way around ... but I'll agree with the sentiment ... "Let's hope Frost has better success here."

This could be silly, but I always thought the primary reason Riles was brought in was to fix the toxic culture Bo created. Boosters were tired of a guy who couldn't do any better than 4 losses a year on top of being an arrogant prick to the fanbase. 

 

He did that, somewhat. Nobody would accuse MR of being a bad guy. 100% class the entire time he was here and great to the fans.

 

But the culture of apathy and shoulder shrugging as we clearly weren't a competitive ball team remained. Apparently SE also thought he was a winning coach here? Had he thought more about aspect of his hire, he might still be here.

 

Regardless, now Frost is being brought in to repair the .500, apathetic culture Riley has unwittingly created. 

 

When you fix our cultural issues, which have been around since TO left, NU can once again begin their return to greatness.

A few people liked the the hire and it was for reasons that were all hypothetical.  

- Maybe he could win with more resource?  

- Oregon St was really bad and impossible to win.

-  Never had a name brand to sell to recruits.

 

Frost is a proven Head Coach (although a small sample size) and has Coordinated some very prolific offenses.
