    Frost fired after year 3. Book it.

    Lay the bong down. Meyer stayed at Utah vs. taking over UF to coach the bowl game. So...."Yes".

    BMF’s right on this one. Meyer stuck around at Utah to coach in the Fiesta Bowl.

      Frost is as big of a can't miss coaching prospect as their has been in a while. In 3 years Mullen and stricklin will be out. Frost will have Nebraska rolling.

        Frost isn’t gonna bring the talent to Nebraska like they had in their day.

          He won’t beat the 3rd best team in the conference, Michigan.

          Lots of trolling going on. If someone had told you a year ago that Frost would lead UCF to an undefeated season including a bowl win over the SEC West champion, would you have believed?

          This is not a guy I want to sell short.

          My comment was more of an observation of our fanbase and how they would react. I don't remember if Spurrier brought a staff of nobodies in 1990. That was 28 years ago and the landscape has changed a bit, don't you think? Some people will view this has the AD sticking his nose where it doesn't belong. Others would've roasted Stricklin if he let Frost bring in nobodies, just like Foley was criticized for all of mac's bargain bin hires.

          And at a school like UF, he could have flourished. No chance of doing it there, kids don't want to live in freaking Nebraska.

            Yep, and they definitely don't want to live in Columbus, Ohio.....College Station, PA.....or many other undesirable locations where schools manage to win football games. In the last 10 years, Nebraska has won 9 games or more 8 times (8 out of 10 seasons) and won 10 games three times. Yeah....nobody can win there.

              Would you be happy with 9 win seasons over 10 years ?

              I don't think it's any different than it ever was. I left the yellow snow of Chicago for Gainesville 43.5 years ago. Nebraska was pulling its weight pretty good back then.

              No. But I think Frost is a better coach than Bo Pelini and Mike Riley. If they can do it, why can't he? Riley won 9 games 2 years ago. I don't get understand what point you're trying to make - that Frost will do exactly what his predecessors did?

              :bwahaha:

              I'm guessing that's why they ran the coach off on a rail, right?

              Those people are insane. They are still living in the 70's - 90's, and expect National Championships, not 8 or 9 win seasons. Trust me I know - my cousin started games for them when the downfall started and I've heard the stories. They expect Frost to win NOW and win BIG and win IT ALL immediately. It's going to be an epic disappointment for them.

              And another thing: Places like Columbus or College Station are SIGNIFICANTLY better places to be than Lincoln.
