      I still think he's a good coach. Not sure how he would have done here. It ain't the 90's anymore and he's not going to get the athletes there he needs.

        Not to mention UCF hasn't missed a beat in his absence.

        Just when you thought you knew everything.

            I am surprised at how inept they look. Didn't see this coming. I still say it's early and he might be tearing the whole thing down and rebuilding it from scratch. Also, some of you said that Nebraska is a dead program. You may have been 100% right.

              They're not just losing, they're losing badly, and not looking like they're knowing WTF they're doing at all. Obviously Frost can't do anything with these players but he's going to have to get more out of them than this if he wants to get any juice he can use to convince more talented recruits to go to that school that is literally in the middle of nowhere.

              Back in the pre-internet, smartphone and social media days when Nebraska kicked ass, kids were less conscious of what was out there in the world, and what their options were in terms of the kinds of places where they could live. Nobody wants to go live in BFE Nebraska unless they have a damn good reason for doing so. Frost isn't giving them any so far.

                As far as winning NC's, I think they are absolutely dead because it's a place you can't recruit elite athletes to anymore. You could certainly put some solid 10-win teams together, though.

                However, those fans expect titles, not 10-win seasons. Frost put himself in an impossible situation.

                    Is Ohio much better? I think Nebraska is at a disadvantage but with the right coach there’s still a possibility.

                        I think he will have them competitive by year 3. I doubt he can ever get them challenging OSU due to recruiting.

                          Ohio is a more fertile recruiting state, esp eastern. That said, you have to be a national recruiter in both states. We know Urban Meyer is.

                            You’re right, of course. Most people consider booming metropolitan areas like Cleveland and Columbus to be prime vacation spots. People are flocking to live there too! Oh wait...

                              There hasn't been a 5-star recruit of the state of Nebraska since 2001.

                              Do you know anything about Nebraska? There is no comparison. Cleveland is Los Angeles compared to anything in Nebraska.

                              Sober up.

                                  Both are ****holes. If Meyer was in Nebraska, he’d put them back on the map.

                                      That's what happens when you recruit. Once frost gets his players, like taggart and kelly, they'll be successful. Adrian Martinez was going to kill it in frost system til he got hurt

                                            The management works very hard to make sure the community is running the best software, best designs, and all the other bells and whistles. Care to buy us a non-alcoholic Zima? We'd really appreciate it! Just click the "Donate" tab at the top of the page.
