Take away the Northwestern game anomaly and then that number drops to... 22.8

Yup.  Atleast 10 pts per game under what the total offense yardage would indicate.  The offense is just not a scoring type offense in the Big Ten as red zone was all too often a dead zone for 4 years.  To be fair, special teams hindered both offense and defense with horrible field position deficits and points damage.  But, the offense far too often failed to score and failed to hold possession time even when moving the ball 30 or 40 yards.  
Too many “empty” of cheap yards.

And late scores when we were down by 2 scores to pull within 1 score (Illinois, Minnesota, Oklahoma)

We were 3rd in the B1G in touchdowns per redzone trip this year. The teams that beat us were OSU with the same amount of trips with one more TD and Michigan had 6 more trips with 2 more TDs. That was not our issue this year.

Right idea, wrong reason.  The only wait that matters now is the one involving a separation agreement in November, 2022.  

 

Whoever the new coordinator will be, there time in Lincoln will be clocked with an egg timer.

100%. The only change might be October as I’ll not be surprised to be 2-4 at the 1st bye week or 2-6 at the 2nd.  Expecting TA to cut bait and start fishin early.

You need 30+ offensively and defend under 20 on average to win 10 games a year.  
we finished under or over on both but mostly due to anemic offense and special teams blunders in missed points scored and way out of balance field position in kicking game.  
Without a good run game we are one dimensional (pass dependent and run weak).  Our run game lacks diversity and deception and power elements and we try to run using pass blocking schemes essentially.  Teams disrespect our run, making us pass heavy and easily predictable.  
coastal Carolina uses  spread but with nice doses of two and three RB sets and true triple option.  Very balanced and hard to defend.  
exactly what Frost lacks.
