    Helfrich is an upgrade. Lubick probably a wash maybe a step back as he's a banker right now

    Hope it's Helfrich if only to get closer to the Oregon/UCF tempo game than has been present the last 2 years at Nebraska.

    Because that top assistant did nothing that resembled top assistant on the field.

    Nebraska scored fewer than 30 points 6 times last year.

    Nebraska allowed fewer than 30 points 5 times last year.

    Similarly to if Chinader were to leave, I'm okay with the opportunity to make a change on the offensive side of the ball.

    But the defense went like 14 straight games against power 5 competition giving up 30 or more...the defense improved in every major category, and dramatically. The wrs showed zero improvement and the only decent player was coached by Held or not at all. I really liked Walters but he could have hated the weather or the travel for recruiting or maybe he realized his brand wasn't being improved at NU.

    Helfrich.... would that mean we're not kicking extra points any more?

    That's likely the reason Chinander is still with the university and Walters isn't.

    I will start this by saying I like Keith Williams and WR's obviously like him with all the work he does with them in the offseason, but doesn't it kind of say something if no other program has snatched him up in the past few years since his issues here?

    His DUI background hurts his employment opportunities at the college level. It creates liability and image issues for a public institution.

    If things don’t improve after next season I hope SF takes the next step..

    Majority of us agree with U 100%.

    Or it could just be that Walters knows that if he's ever going to get a head coaching job he needs to at least be the play caller. I really didn't ever think Walters was going to be a long term guy at NU.

    I agree with that, TW wants to move on and up. I get it. On the other hand, the position he is in charge of has been one of our weakest points. Massive failure really given the number of highly rated players we recruited to WR.

    Respect to Frost for doing what needed to be done and firing these guys who are regressing instead of progressing.

    I think coach Verduzco might be next as well and/or coach Austin.

    We need more coach Held "ish" type of coaches on this team. Coach Held literally can even turn his position group around in the middle of a season if need be. He doesn't just let his position group sit there and suck. Held will FIND...A...WAY!!!

    These other coaches will just freaking sit back and watch their position group perform like sh*t the whole season blaming the players, making excuses, and doing whatever without trying to find a way to make it work with what they have there already. Same with coach Fisher too who needs a hefty shout out as well.

    Austin just got a promotion and is killing it on the recruiting trail. He's not going anywhere.

    Ummm. Austin just got a large pay raise and additional title. Verduzco isn't going anywhere either.

    Exactly, just because he was let go doesn't necessarily mean he was a bad coach. Just means things weren't working out here and sometimes it's best to make a change. I actually believe that about a lot of the assistants on staff is although they may have been good coaches at UCF, something just isn't working out here and I think it's time to make some changes.

    Did you guys see that O-line this past season? It was the most crippling part of our entire offense. Don't think "recruiting" is all it's going to take to make a position group or any team good. Look at how well Chad Morris was recruiting at Arkansas and yet his team still regressed horribly. I'm still going to question coach Austin until I see that group perform well on the GOT....D*MN...FIELD! PERIOD!!!

    They started a freshman center and a walk on soph at guard. At the end of the year they were playing pretty well. They're all back next fall and we've added some depth so I expect them to be a strength of this team next year. Everybody want's coaches to develop players. It appeared to me that in fact Austin is getting that done.

    We had like how many guys back from that O-line from the previous year? When you have the worst line in the Big Ten while already recruiting at the level we do, there's a problem with coaching. But what's your excuse for Verduzco staying on board? He clearly regressed his player(s) from one year to the next.

    Where do you get the idea that we'd been recruiting well? Was Benhart supposed to come in and start from day one? Austin had nothing to work with this year.

    Bruh, Iowa destroyed Ohio State not to long ago and dropped 55 on them with two freshman O-linemen and a freshman at QB. There is no excuse.

    Austin has done fine with the little talent he inherited. Now if he fails to develop Benhart, Corcoran, Piper, Fritzsche, Banks etc. over the next couple years, then that's another story.

    Why can't no one defend keeping Verduzco who clearly regressed his player(s) this past season?

    I guess it also sends a message to the current assistant coaches that it is important to “do your job” to the best of your abilities or changes can/will be made. Winking

    You better look at the offensive stats before you call it the worst line in the B1G. I'm beginning to smell a troll.....

    Trying to make sense? It's actually not as hard as you think when you look at Martinez from his first season to this past season.
