And yes I know that there isn’t a lot to do in Lincoln. Never the less, Frost will be a pain in the butt for the Big Ten.
    As to your overall message ... sorry no, I just don’t buy it. Not yet.

    Nebraska has always had that type of fan base, since they’ve been in the Big Ten. And that type of national presence and recruiting.

    And coaches have still managed to lose there.

    Frost might turn it around ... but the fact that Nebraska’s diehards far outnumber any other Big Ten West school’s, doesn’t prove anything about winning.

    With all the love the Huskers have received nationally from the sporting press, and with all the enthusiasm Nebraska fans have shown for the return of the beloved prodigal son, if Frost doesn't turn it around... well, it will go down as one of the biggest face-plants in college football history.

    You’re potentially correct ... but Frost doesn’t do anything for me. I don’t see why it would be any worse than Callahan or Riley.

    It’s funny to look back now, that Neb fans thought they’d probably do better than Pellini.

    Yes. The way Nebraska fans reacted to Bo Pelini reminds me a little of Viking fans' attitudes toward Dennis Green, back in the day. Or Gopher fans ambivalence toward Glen Mason.

    Cool. I'll wait for you to take Frost to task then.

    It will be interesting. NEB got rid of an HC in Pelini who consistently won 9-10 games a season and had them ranked pretty much every year. If Frost does the same, will they be satisfied?

    Nope. Then the John Gruden talk can begin.

    Kansas has Les Miles, maybe Nebraska can get Nick Saban!

    Will be very interesting to see who does better over the next few years: Les Miles at Kansas, or the previous NDSU head coach now at K-State.
