Seems people are locked in on about six choices.  When it is announced, the fan tone will be much different than the frost announcement. Trying to be positive- maybe it’s good. But I also fear it could fragmenting 

It goes back to paying for Frosts buyout. If you don't hit a home run with this hire your mission failed. You forfeited a season by not canning him last year and you paid him $7.5M to leave, so you cant screw up the hire by going cheap.

Do we know he was at the stadium? 

He wasn't.  As of Saturday morning he hadn't even talked with Nebraska or any of the NIL groups and they will most likely talk to the potential coach (Although there was a rumor one of the NIL groups followed him on Twitter for hot minute.) When that does happen I'm sure someone employed there will leak it out and it will be solid information. But the MR 2 day interview is made up stuff by another board trying to get members. There had been 3 coaches that reached out that can been some what confirmed from the coaching world side of things and their comments in the press and twitter. One signed an extension. One has an extension on his disk unsigned but ready to sign and the third person we weren't interested in. I know fairly confidently we reached out to several folks including Fickle who didn't return a call (that did come from a slip un in the AD office before a football game tail gate), and most aren't very interested because they have better chances where they are to succeed or they feel they will have a better shot at a good school in the next couple of years. Nebraska is kind of turd in a punch bowl to most coaches. So options are limited.  I think the "vote" of confidence in the media that Trev is doing an excellent job was also made up. I don't think the BOR would agree at this point if you ask them privately.  They are nervous that we don't have someone locked up yet after 70 plus days and really we need to have that done this week. I was told Mickey would be our fall back and he is one of the last two in the running for ASU. Not sure why he's up their list so high.  Outside of Nebraska where you had ties, you wouldn't really look at a life long receivers coach who was interim coach that won 2 games even if he's a good recruiter and has played the part right and said mostly the right things during those 2 months you were in charge. So props to him for getting that chance. I think if he was offered both jobs he would probably leave. I think he's frustrated that he hasn't been interviewed for the job as of last week similar to the way Turner Gill was treated by Steve Peterson when Frank was fired. Just my 2 cents on MJ's thoughts don't know anyone who's directly heard from him. Just folks around UNL that "get that sense" .  Pretty important week and not a lot of good information out there. Anything that is out there is from sources not inside the AD office and pretty vague.

I disagree.

Problem is even though this is your 2nd post, i could see all of this being true.

I dream of the day when we are all sitting around discussing post season bowl games, opponents....bla bla bla....instead of who our next coach is going to be.

 

It seems like this has been where we are at forever.

Yeah when was the last bowl game we won? I can't even remember who we even played or what the results were without looking.
