    I sure hope this is rock bottom. I don't want to believe it goes deeper.

    The only way it goes deeper is if the Big 10 goes Temple on Nebraska and they end up in the MWC

    Or NCAA sanctions. Does Frost get a second year?

    They owe him $26MM if they fire him this year. So yeah, I think he gets more time.

    Fire Frost? GTFO. He is our favored son coming home to save us. The only way he doesn't get at least 4 years to show what he can do is if he has back to back winless seasons.

    Nebraska is ranked 24. Well above 30-60!

    Borrowing from your 2019 College football posting..."Our long national nightmare is over." Is the nightmare finally over for Nebraska? I think Nebraska can win the Big 10 West and have a decent shot of upsetting THE [trademark] Ohio State in Lincoln. I base this optimism more on the Cornhuskers easy schedule than on their current talent level. Looking over the projected 2-deep depth chart, the Huskers are a young team. Maybe, just maybe, Nebraska turns the corner this year. Or this is just another false summit.

    Last season had two distinct parts. The first half was whipping the team into shape and finding an identity after a rudderless three years under Riley. The second half they seemed to find themselves and the play on the field reflected that. I'm optimistic the improvement continues and that Frost has infused a sense of culture and purpose into the program that hasn't been there since Solich was fired. I'm dont know if Im ready to predict a B1G West division title, but I think they will be right in the race and get 8-9 wins in the end.

    Martinez is also getting some Heisman love. I saw he is 10-1 right now, fourth best odds of any player. We will see if it is deserved.

    With last night's epic comeback win against mighty Illinois, Nebraska became the 6th program to 900 all time wins. They join the elite club of Michigan, Ohio State, Texas, Alabama, and Notre Dame. We may be a top 30 to 60 program currently, but we are top 6 all time!

    Might as well drink the red Kool-Aid for a week before THE Ohio State Buckeyes come to Lincoln. I doubt the outcome is as favorable if Nebraska has 4 turnovers and 100+ yards in penalties next week. Nevertheless, it was nice to see Scott Frost's offence hitting on all cylinders (almost 700 yards) even if it was against Illinois.

    Nebraska and Scott Frost announced another top 25 recruiting class earlier this week that included 7 Florida players (30% of its class). Of the 7 players, 4 are 4* star recruits. All of them received offers or significant interest from the big three Florida schools. Nebraska still has a long way to go to regain national relevancy but it looks like Frost will be given the time to continue to recruit and rebuild (and hopefully win). He was given a two-year contract extension (thru 2026) despite Nebraska not going to a bowl game in his first two seasons.

    Nebraska doubles down! GM would approve.

    I think it's the smart bet. Full disclosure: it's probably the only bet.

    Agreed. Cycling through coaches every 3 years is not the way to go. Unless there are major red flags, stay the course.

    Sitake's and Frost's situations have parallels.

    If only one of those parallels was a top 25 recruiting class with four 4* recruits.

    Unfortunately...it isn't.

    The four 4* recruits I mentioned were all from Florida. In Nebraska's entire class of 23, 10 are ranked as 4* recruits (only one player is from Nebraska). Still probably quite a way behind Ohio St, Penn St., and Michigan. Nevertheless, when Nebraska was relevant (a couple of decades ago), they had similar ranked recruiting classes.

    One parallel that BYU and Nebraska have is that they both need Utah to crash and burn. Obviously, BYU signed more talent from Utah but Nebraska would often sign a Utah player who was not mission bound and had no interest in the "BYU experience". Now those players are playing for Utah.
