I have never felt worse about Nebraska football

We weren't the villains. Not then. Not now.

 

We just didn't have much of a team this year. 

 

If the Huskers had come out on fire and been any kind of factor in the Big 10, we would have been a feelgood story and the Big 10 would have welcomed it, like they did Indiana. If anything the media has been nicer to Nebraska than our own fans. Like it or not, the unexpected failure of Scott Frost's return to Nebraska is a story. Otherwise there's not much reason to talk about Nebraska at all. 

We sure whine about everything. Everything is some grand scheme against us. 
 

and what has Frost ever won that he didn’t whine to the media first? 
 

and if you ask villains if they’re the villain, they say no, they’re the victim.

Fans need to stop throwing everything on Riley. Yes, we all agree that he was a bad hire. No one doubts that but Frost has had the majority of his staff for three years and they have not been able to

As usual people are wildly overreacting to this loss. Minnesota was only 12 spots below us in SP+ entering this game; by that system we were expected to win by 3.6 points. We then missed a chip-shot f

Getting Dragged by Illinois and Minnesota (down 30+ guys) on twitter, because they kicked our asses when we were begging for football back has me at wit's end. The OSUs, Wisc, Iowa's don't even bother

I think the despair in reasonable. This has been the worst stretch of play since the 50s. I assume the majority of posters don't remember the Bill Jennings days. 

 

I question if this has been the worst season since then. At least Callahan's and Riley's last seasons you could say the team gave up because the writing was on the wall. Can't say that this time around.

 

I'm not totally sure if I think it is or not, but it's depressing that I'm even considering it.

Agreed.

The players make a lot of mistakes, but if it was only making a lot of mistakes that was the problem I would not be as concerned. The problem I have is there are so many weird/bad playcalls every game, and it makes me think Frost isn't a good coach, or at least not a good offensive coordinator. And it's a lot of common sense stuff. The most obvious set of the game of course is when McCaffrey comes in fresh with snow on the ground and strong winds and in our 3 previous plays we had a 7 yard run and a 9 yard run, and you have him throw it 2 times. In general, I get really frustrated with any coaching staff that is too scared of doing a type of play too much, as if having it stuffed the 5th time you do it is the end of the world. There are times you should just keep doing something until the other team shows they can stop it. I'm imagining when Wisconsin destroyed us in the championship if they had tried to get creative instead of just doing the same type of play over and over. I feel good coaches know when to force a team to show they can stop a play even if it's obvious you're going to do it.

 

My only theory now is that Frost's offense is too focused on what the defense gives them (or what he perceives they are giving), rather than doing what his team is good at. And if I had to guess, one problem with an offense that does this is once opposing coaches get used to your offense they can just bait you into a bad play.

Maybe the best thing is to cut loose of the one last thing we’re the best at? The sellout streak. Maybe we can’t go forward until we hit bottom. 20 years of narcissism. 

 

This cannot be fun for fans or players.

20 years of narcissism is right. If I was the HC, I would basically come out and say, "hey what happened in the past is awesome, but we have to do our own thing. Retire the blackshirts, find new traditions. Make our own culture, instead of trying to live off of someone else's." Trying to 'revive the glory days' is not going to work imo. Make your own traditions and culture. Stop acting entitled, 'we are Nebraska.' Whats that supposed to mean? You are 11-20 the past 3 years. Get better.
