You’re correct. And I still think he’s our guy. 

 

But the thing that bothers me the mental part. The discipline, penalties, etc.  We honestly don’t look any different in that area than we did under Riley. Thats not a talent issue, that’s a coaching issue. 

I think he is too, but he is going to have to make some adult decisions. Are the people on his staff really the best he can do? He may need to sever relationships in order to get this team where it needs to go. Is he willing to do that?  Only time will tell. And it could be the difference between him being the coach here for the next 20 years, or the next 5.

I don’t buy this entirely. A team just needs to be consistently good at something. We are good at nothing, no identity, osu passes a lot, so does psu. We just are not good at anything

I agree.  If your offense cannot run, you have to pass.   Just need a QB that can get passes off in 2-3 seconds since the line is no good.   Crappy weather is a dodge, it seems that the good college and pro teams in the northern so okay.  Ideally, you pass to force changes in the defense so some running plays will go.  In our case, the Husker line is crap so passing is the best hope.

Its time to sit some guys.  Its time to move on from others, if we can do that without burning RS.  Sure, if we have some RS to burn for the final remaining games, use those 4 games up, but we are not winning anything this year.  Keep some of those RS for the bowl game as well so we see more after a few more practices in December.  This staff is building for the future, not just this season or maybe even next season, but the future.  Sure I think most coaches could go the Juco route and build for one season and do pretty good, but if your going to build for every season, it takes time to build those blocks the right way.  Dr. Tom took a few years to get things established, but once it was, it was 16-17 years of being a contender.  Thats what were looking for.

Maybe Frost isn't the guy...

I think we need to give him more than 1.5 years to make that determination. A lot of people wanted Osborne gone after a few years too. There is something to be said for continuity, especially at a place like Nebraska that is already in a recruiting deficit

Gave you a +1 for honesty.  Hard to disagree with what you said.

Told my wife almost the exact same thing just a few minutes ago.  We used to lose and the state would be p!$$ed off.  Now, we make excuses and hope to go to a bowl.  I don’t even mind missing games anymore.  Sad times

This.  I use to not miss games for nothing.  Now tonight I missed almost the entire first half and half of the third and it didn’t even phase me.

It’s hard to hear, but true. A lot of people aren’t old enough, or just plain don’t remember, that it took Osborne over 20 years to win a national title. The fact that he made a family, stable atmosphere at Nebraska helped build the program over the years. We can’t instantly recruit a bunch of local talent to turn the program around overnight, it has to be built with patience.

What is really one of the biggest factors in recruiting is alot of these kids don't care about winning a Natty, they are going any where they can go to play right away and impress the scouts.  If that means going to UCF over Florida and sitting on the bench, thats the route taken.  We need to start getting some local kids and build them up to have kids here that care, and then they will inforce that in our more skilled players from across the nation.  Kids still like winning, but they like the spotlight just as much.
