    You think? As long as Cally recruits him a Suh each year he will do ok. Why wasn't this defensive genius able to adjust to Wisky in the CCG?

    Nah, I'd be cocainehole if I was Carl. Either way, Bo won 9 or 10 every year. Thats an exceedingly elite level of coaching. We would have a natty by now if he was still around. SMH at Eichorst and the Bo-haters. All we have left now is hoping to make a bowl and praying that Wisconsin takes it easy on us. Oh, and talking crap about how we're gonna get Iowa next time.

    They aren't Suh (but 99+% aren't) but I think Barrett Ruud and Demario Williams were Ok.

    Best coach at Nebraska since Osborne.

    I hold him in high regard.

    Some of the others, not so much.

    Do people actually think what we’ve seen the last two years or what we’re gonna see next year are better than anything Bo Pelini put out there at Nebraska?

    I mean, that’s fine and all, but then we might as well throw this into a Fox News comments thread.

    With Bo it’s very simple; in the beginning he is good (with other coaches recruits)- after that period and he has to recruit he stinks, period. He simply does not like to recruit

    The comparisons between Pelini and Frost are fair at this point because we keep score.

    That being said and with the obvious differences in initial talent levels aside, Pelini coached one team with a SOS more difficult than the 2019 team and none with as tough of a schedule as the 2018 team or the projected schedules in 2020 and 2021.

    Then there's the whole scope of the build. Pelini was tasked with building a strong team that could win its division. Pelini succeeded, quickly for that matter. Frost is tasked with building a program that is a perennial Top-10 team, a status not even Pelini got to at the end of any season. I guess we'll find out if he gets the program there - he's got seven years left to try.

    "If I was a coach that took over a program like Nebraska I would feel like I deserved at least three or four years to fully integrate my philosophies and tactics as a coach and leader." - Scott Frost, 2005

    Like Burkhead, Ameer, TMart, Armstrong, Lavonte, K. Bell, Westercamp, Gregory, valentine, etc?


    But yeah, he did inherit Suh and Prince so that explains the success.

    no, and that's not at all what anyone in this thread are saying.

    obviously.

    the best season of bo's life as a head coach culminated in a conf champ game loss to texas. if that's better than Frost delivers during his tenure, then so be it. many, myself included, think his ceiling is higher. clock's still ticking.

    meanwhile, bo's head coaching career is being lowered into a very deep grave, and he's got only the thumb to point as to why.

    I agree somewhat. Mature adults learn to be themselves and also control their emotions in professional surroundings...Bo lacked maturity and refused to even work on the worst parts of his character. It’s too bad he couldn’t figure it out.

    I love that Bo was only good with BC's recruits...but yet...had the same results with his own recruits.

    I think that’s an indictment of his coaching abilities. He should have been more than just good with the players Callahan left him. He should have at least won a conference title.

    Let's all remember one thing, based on his "success" at Nebraska not one single P5 school wanted him as their head coach. And they still don't.

    Bo had too many glaring holes to take the next step. Great D, no qb. On and on. I'm willing to give Frost the full 7 years to see if he can take the next step. Bo understood you win with D. He didn't understand elite qb recruiting. Frost does and I think it will eventually pay off.

    He didn't understand elite qb recruiting? You might want to go back and look at where Turner, Armstrong, Starling, Stanton, Carnes, and Green were rated in their classes. 5 years in a row we signed a top 11 qb nationally and 2 in one year.

    Had Taylor Martinez not gotten hurt this argument would be very different.

    The most exciting player I ever watched, and I have watched them all since 1969.

    I often wonder how many more wins Bo needed to be well liked by all Husker fans...

    I sort of think just 6 more wins makes him loved in the state.

    I would guess...

    Two games vs Texas
    The TT game
    The NW game
    The ISU game
    The OU game

    Thats as impressive of a recruiting list as we have ever seen over a 5 year period. Development, not so much. It was always a faliure of development on Bo's part, not recruiting. We didn't even have a qb coach over his entire tenure. You could make a far better argument against Callahan than against Bo for not placing emphasis on recruiting elite qbs. The best one he brought in was a 2 star nobody in his first year.

    everyone knows not being able to develop anyone is a college football coach's ticket to the top 15!

    Clearly that would have been different from 2016 through 2019 if Bo had been retained. Only a Riley apologist would say otherwise.

    I am old and need new glasses, but I still say Taylor was the most exciting player I ever saw.

    Think he has the record of most runs over 80 yards. That is the definition of exciting in my book.

    clearly. how could it have gone any other way, despite the deluge of evidence to the contrary and all.

    yes, it's exceedingly clear the program was in good hands and on the rise under bo. clearly.

    Obviously it was the players not executing the plays. I have no reason to believe that it wouldn't have changed in 2016. That squad could have been a playoff caliber team with Bo at the helm.
