      They were worried the nulls were coming after him.

          He’s just not going to get the athletes at Nebraska that he had at UCF to make his offense go. Plus he’s playing actual defenses now.

          Although I think Mullen was the right coach, Frost would’ve done very well here.

            Although it makes sense for them to not extend his contract, I think it’s pretty common that this usually happens. He’s a legacy. When they bring in a legacy they tend to give them a lot more wiggle room.

            See Harbaugh.

            if Tebow ended up succeeding Mullen, if he had a couple early not successful seasons, there’s no way that UF would fire him as quickly as they did Mac. Muschamp would’ve been fired as quickly as Mac was. The only reason they didn’t do it Was because injuries were so catastrophic that year they weren’t sure how they could deal with the perception of firing a coach like that.

            If FSU brought in Deion sanders, he would get five years. Regardless of the outcome on the field.

              Mullen has kind of done well here too!

                Your problem is you can’t think like them. Wait, that’s not really a problem. Never mind.

                  I guess the AD's at ND and Neb., got their degrees from the University of Foley...

                    Wonder if Frost has misgivings over bringing the entire staff from Orlando with him? 65th in total offense, 73rd in total defense. As it turns out, Nebraska doesn’t do anything particularly well.

                    Love this. It will be used by the media as a cudgel to smote FSU for firing Willie.

                      Smart move. Nebraska is showing improvement and the linear trend analysis has him losing only five games in 2026.

                        Underrated point. And seriously - the dichotomy is a bit troubling. There is no discernible difference in performance relative to competition (recruiting or on field) but one is fired while the other is extended.

                          The Huskers would be even better off digging up Bob Devaney and going at it Weekend at Bernie’s style for the next seven years.
