    We need a whole package coach, not just a OC or DC turned HC we need an HC who can bring in a great DC and a decent OC or whichever side of the ball they are less proficient so in Scotts case he has a fantastic DC and he is more hands on with OC assistants prop up the HC all to often. I personally think it is more a roll of the dice to grab a DC or OC who hasnt managed a whole team and got all the parts working together.

    I completely agree ... I just hope that what everyone agrees is a great hire -the "whole package" - is available as we look at the list of interested candidates if Frost ends up elsewhere

    Disaster? 7-5 is within reach and that's where a large portion of people, nationally and locally - including this fan base, expected out of NU this season.

    Not good enough though, "9 wins, TO!" & why I say Moos backed himself in to a corner when he said this isnt a rebuild. It most definitely was in Decemebr 2014 (Eichorst mistake during his PC) and we're all seeing it right now.

    Just wait, I all but guarantee the narrative will change in 2 years. Hoping it doesn't, we'll see...

    Based on history, whoever you guys think the third or fourth option is, that's your new coach.

    You can search for it on these threads. No need to venture out to hear it on a google.

    Mike Riley is being given 3 seasons, and he's had every chance to turn this team around since NIU and hasn't. If Riley doesn't have a losing season his first year and last year doesn't end as bad as it did, Riley would get a 4th year.

    Our average recruiting class over the last 10 years has ranking in the 20s and 30s. No MAC school has that good of class. We have better talent .

    “Disaster” is a huge compliment to the product this coaching staff has trotted out on the field virtually every game this season, as any casual observer of this game would note.

    Be that as it may, it is still true that 7-5 is within reach.

    We have so far lost to every team people thought we would lose to except NIU. And if we lose to PSU that will also have been expected. Many preseason prognosticators had us going 7-5 with a loss to Iowa as the fifth rather than NIU.

    If we do also lose to Iowa and go 6-6, that NIU loss really hurt us. Hurt Riley. So if we do go 7-5 or 6-6 and Riley gets fired, we can all look back on that NIU loss as the thread that came loose and unraveled the whole sweater.

    Oh, now it matters HOW Nebraska plays. From 2008-2014, that didn't matter.

    It always has. If you’re saying it did before, yet hold up 7-5 as something other than a disaster, that’s hypocritical. Regardless, we’re arguing about the validity of a 7-5 record, which is Charlie Weiss level depressing.

    The only game we looked marginally dominant was Illinois. 7-5 is selling the abilities of these players short when you look at the body of work.

    No, it always hasn't.

    And 7-5 is far from a disaster. Comments like yours is exactly why Nebraska football deserves a few 2-10 & 3-9 seasons so you can face an actual disaster of a season.

    I dont know if Husker Nation would recover from a 2-10 3-9 back to back seasons... it would likely turn the tide of us ever getting back to anything respectable

    Nobody expected us to be "dominant" this year. We haven't been "dominant" in a long, long time.
    7-5 is what most people expected. Not me, I thought we would go 10-2 or 9-3. But lots of people smarter than I who were koolaid free saw 7-5.
    So if we end up at 7-5, regardless of how dominant we were, the season will have played out as most thought it would

    Who is “it”? I was referring to myself and you - our opinion if the “how” mattered. For me the “how” mattered then and it matters now. How about you?

    Please list recent disaster-level seasons to qualify your statement. Exclude the two 5-7 and 7-7 seasons (since those are obvious).

    It's always mattered how Nebraska played. I'm not going to over-analyze a simple concept, but what's plagued NU throughout the years, including Bo's tenure, is that absolute butt kicking that showed NU has a very long way to go. Record is a stat, you can make it whatever you want. Reality doesn't lie. NU has had at least three performances this year that shows 7-5 still puts them woefully behind Wisconsin, PSU, OSU. We're probably behind others as well.

    8-4 (beat NIU) with competitive losses to those 3 and Oregon is pretty dang successful season IMO. Big 10 with their spectacular scheduling predetermined the West before a single kickoff, so attaining that was never in the cards.

    I’d be more receptive if the 7-5 included competitive games against Wiscy/OSU and comfortable wins against Purdue/Rutgers/NIU/ASU. There’s two different 7-5s we’re talking about here.

    It = this very forum.

    At Nebraska, there hasn't been a disaster of a season since I've been alive.

    Not on this forum, from 2008-2014. But it did matter from 2004-2007 and once again 2015-2017. The McNeese State game is a prime example of what I'm talking about. "Didn't matter we played like crap, it's a win" was all over this place back then.

    Never, ever cared on the how, regardless of the opponnet. Wait, unless a wager was placed then it made a difference.
