What do you mean? You can’t run that kind of offense anymore. Defenses are too fast nowadays. And then with these spread type offenses everybody is running, those old Blackshirt defenses couldn’t keep up. Ok I’m being facetious here folks.To me that was the most important line from the presser. He was clearly saying Nebraska lost its way when it went away from the formula that worked. Solid defense and an offense centered on a dual threat QB, which he said is impossible to stop.
Translation: I think Nebraska should return to its roots
He also spoke of our fractured and fragile fan base and an increase in apathy. He wants to hire a coach that will unite the fans and ignite excitement.
Translation: I am not going to hire a head scratcher. I am going to hire someone this fan base will really rally around.
He said he liked the sandwiches in Philly in response to the question about meeting Frost there.
Add it up. Scott Frost is our next coach
A lot of us have been saying we need to get back to our roots for years. Now our AD is saying it. But saying it and doing it are two different things. Scott Frost is the obvious choice to bring back the Big Red Machine. And YES, it will still be successful if modeled after Ozzy, McBride and Co. (with a few tweaks here and there, of course). Come on home Scott. Let’s get this thing reloaded. GBR.
