Trev thinks this job is the equivalent of a 2 star recruit with offers from the MAC
Sort of but not really...I think at least twice in the last 20 years NU has cracked the top 10 during the season.I agree with Trev also. We haven't been relevant in 20 years
It’s an odd choice of words.Interesting quote. It could mean that he is indeed having trouble finding positive feedback for the job. But then again, if that were true, I doubt he would admit that in so many words for public consumption. I think all he means is what the words actually mean and there is no hidden message or subtext. I think it is his way of saying that he is confident we are going to land a really good coach who is a good fit for us since the job is still an attractive one if you get beyond the failures of the past 8 years and look at the program in its totality. Great new facilities. Great, great fan base. Big ass stadium sold out every game. In the B1G. Traditional blue blood. A hero's status if you come here and turn it around. Big salary with lots of incentives and perks. And Lincoln is a much cooler city than most realize until they get there.
I think this is a positive message from Trev and not some hidden signal that he is having trouble finding a coach.
No, that's a poor, loser mindset. He's saying that the job is of great value to the right person who can build it back up. It is highly desirable, but it will take work.
I think our expectations have been significantly lowered in the last 10 years. Win at least 75% of your games and have breakout seasons here and there. Anybody under 30 doesn't really remember Nebraska being great.Heard an interesting take on the radio here in KC. It was from a national writer/commentator whose name I did not catch.
Anyway, he said the NU job is absolutely attractive. He cited the Big Ten money. NIL money. Fervent fan base. Great facilities that are getting better. Brand name. Big Ten West is 'winnable' every year.
But then he went on to say that guys like Leipold, and Campbell may not want to take that job because the expectations in Lincoln are higher than they are in Lawrence and Ames. Those guys make a ton of money where they are and may not want the added pressure of higher expectations. He also mentioned Mark Stoops at Kentucky, comparing him to Leipold at Kansas, where the only expectation is to keep fans occupied until football season.
I am 28. I vaguely remember Eric Crouch as a kid. First season I really remember is '03 With Jamaal Lord where Frank got fired and Bo won the Alamo bowl as interim.I think our expectations have been significantly lowered in the last 10 years. Win at least 75% of your games and have breakout seasons here and there. Anybody under 30 doesn't really remember Nebraska being great.
