    Yeah you're right. The #18 media market and the most fertile recruiting grounds are worthless

    Yea that sucks. We have had it to a degree a few years ago. One year when we were preparing to play in the B1G Championship, Pelini was out openly campaigning for other jobs. The ironic part is one of those schools went on to hire the coach that kicked our ass in the Championship Game.

    For UCF, the absolute best case scenario is that Frost stays 1 more year.

    Not even sure if its worth it for most of the UCF fanbase.

    Worth it for the fans and SF to go out on a 26 game winning streak? Yeah it's worth it

    @Skerz4Life50

    Made some good points. I have to wonder how much the "experienced" is going to factor into this go around.

    Kelly, Gundy, Whittingham are probably the first three experienced coaches that come to mind who are readily available.

    I don't really see us chasing Miles, Stoops is retired, we're not stealing Peterson and Patterson, this is sort of the "pipe dream" box...or at least the very low probability box.

    Pretty much everyone else is some degree of "up and coming".

    Frost might not be Candidate 1, but he's almost assuredly candidate 2 on any practical list.

    Gundy is readily available? Is he unhappy at Okie State? I don't want him anyway. He is a good coach but even with Boone's money and state of the art new facilities, he has never gotten them to much of anything

    Some folks on other boards of a good reputation had said he was interested in the position last time....Tom on this board has that I can remember.

    I think for the right deal either would jump ship. I really don't want anyone on that experienced list though. I'd rather roll with Dino or Campbell or Frost. Or Broehm. Or go after like a Venables or Pruitt.

    ShortSideOption. Generally has good info on the other board. Over the years he's let it be known that he has contact with Frost on occasion, but I don't think they are like best buds or anything.

    A two loss Ohio State...you are correct.
    A two loss Oklahoma State...I think UCF could squeeze by them if the Knights continue to win their games by margins of 4 - 6 touchdowns.

    Aww...Brucie feelings are still hurt because we were not nice to him in response to his trolling and flames on the UCF board!

    You know, a Husker fan who's team just lost 56 - 14 to 9th ranked Ohio State probably shouldn't be making fun of UCF losing to 5th ranked Michigan by 31 points.

    Can we make fun of you for losing to Temple? Or a Maryland team even Mike Riley beat easily?

    Actually there are two other reasonable reasons.
    1. Even if he says he wants to stay at at UCF, no one is going to believe him, just like no one believes any successful G5 coach when he says he wants to stay at his G5 school. It won't make the talk go away, so maybe he decided that not addressing the issue at all (at least publicly) is the best way to handle it.
    2. If (and that is a BIG if) Frost has decided he wants to stay at UCF, why would he want to publicly declare he has no interest in any other job this year (including Nebraska) which would embarrass his old school, his former team mates, and those fans who really want him to be the Huskers coach. He can just quietly turn it down if offered the job, and everyone can claim publicly it was never offered to him.

    Sure...go for it! Doesn't bother me a bit.

    Considering we were playing a true Freshman at QB (who had six turnovers in the Maryland game...and we still took them to 2OT) and it was our first year under Scott Frost after a 2015 season that had the players totally demoralized... most UCF fans were not expecting more than 4-5 wins last year anyway.

    Unfortunately, UCF is a better program than NU right now. Let that sink in. Are we really going to get into a pissing match with a non P5 team's fan base over which team got their asses kicked worse?

    Damn.....this sucks to be right back to 2007 all over again.

    Like I said, Florida/Florida State/Miami already own that media market. Adding UCF would add nothing of additional value. There's a reason the failing Big 12 Conference rejected you.

    Some of his 'band' is also former huskers. Plus Nebraska isn't going to stop a coach from bringing in his own assistants, hell Riley got to bring in Banker and that was a terrible decision.

    I was just poking fun at the thread where almost every post claims that Frost's current OC and DC are not experienced enough for the mighty Huskers program. You really think Frost is going to demote his best friend from DC to position coach?

    You don’t know this state very well. Fans will sit and say frost should go hire orgeron to be a WR coach just to get another ace recruiter on a potential all star staff...

    But at the end of the day if Frost showed up in a Huskers hat and the goof troop from team Disney....he’s still walk on water here

    Any active coach hired by Nebraska will swear up and down that they are remaining at their previous job, until the moment they are announced as Nebraska's new head coach. No one is going to admit they're looking around, potentially poisoning their current job if the deal goes sour. Because they'd have the players, fans, and administration after their head, making it a very uncomfortable place to work.

    They all follow the exact same script: "I'm at [enter school here] until they ask me to leave." Or some variation of that. Even as they are signing papers accepting the new job, they will repeat the lie until an official announcement is made. It's not personal, it's business.

    I'd be perfectly fine with that. Seems to me to have assembled a good staff.

    I don't see this anywhere. In fact, there are a lot of positive posts about Chadlier. My only fear is that is Frost leaves, he gets the HC gig at UCF. And I have not seen Walters mentioned at all.

    Frost is going to accept the job if offered. Not sure why everyone is trying to turn this into rocket science. The only reason he wouldn't accept the job is if he didn't think he could win here.

    I don't know Scott Frost but I can say without almost complete certainty that he doesn't believe that. He is apart of the tribe.

    2 + 2 = 4 and Scott Frost would come to Nebraska if offered.

    Frost might have his choice of Florida or Florida State in the next couple years. Jimbo is 2-4 this year after being ranked #3 preseason, and he seems to be melting down.

    Why would he want to go to either of those places? Their fans are far more entitled than even ours are.

    I thought only 2- and 3-star recruits went to UCF. Why would a player want to go to a little commuter school over Big 10 power Nebraska?
