  1. I think football has had the better off-season but I don’t think that means much. Frost has already established a culture of losing. It’s a monumental task to flip a program that’s been this historically bad in Year 5, even with some better assistant coaches. I fully expect the football program to hover around .500, even with an easy schedule. I also fully expect Frost to be back for at least another year or two as Nebraska football doesn’t really have any real expectations anymore. I’m rooting for the best outcome possible with Frost, but I just don’t see him being successful here. I don’t think Hoiberg’s off-season has been that good. Again though, doesn’t mean much. I like that he’s bringing in some tough and physical players. I do believe Hoiberg can coach. I think he stands a better shot at being competitive with some hard-nose players who may not be the best offensively than he does with some of the defense-is-optional rosters he’s had here in the past. I will have to see the final roster, but it would’s surprise me if he scratched off the most wins he’s had since he’s been here. Not that says that much, just saying. I do think Hoiberg will be fired while Trev gives Frost another pass. Just my opinion.
  2. My theory? Trev likes tall, handsome blonde men. The only logical conclusion I can come up with for retaining both of these two monstrosities in our athletic department. I like both of them a lot, but good grief their records…woof. I’m joking of course…I think. To me, he’s got to have a winning record and play competitively for most of the year for this to work, even if it’s just 1 game above .500. If he can do that, it shows that he’s building something. You can’t be a serious Power 5 program and give a coach who hasn’t had a winning season here a 5th year. But then again Scott Frost got that chance and football is far more important so who knows.
  3. 100% I would get him to Lincoln.
  4. Ha! I remember that guy. Junior high girls basketball legend IIRC. He just might be in our price range.
  5. I wonder if that call was Trev and he was throwing his voice.
  6. If it were me, I’d be interviewing Jerrance Howard. I like head coaches who were point guards and team captains on highly competitive teams. He did so at Illinois while playing on some really good teams. Young and energetic which I like. Good recruiter who can recruit Chicago and the Midwest. Learned for many years under Bill Self. Spent time with Larry Brown, Billy Gillespie, and is now down in Texas under Beard. Apparently had a lot to do with player development at KU. Guy checks a lot of boxes for me. I’d have to hear his plan in an interview. But we wouldn’t have to break the bank and he’d have a high ceiling. Also, big Devries fan as well.
  7. I would ask Fred to reduce his buyout by $3 million or so and we will make this as amicable as possible. Or bet on yourself and run it back but there will be no staff changes. If a member of the staff leaves, we will fill it as cheaply as possible on a one year deal. If we could get it down to $15 million or so, and get a few checks from some donors, I think we could swing it. But at that point, Trev should be praying to God, nature, aliens, or whatever the hell he believes in that Frost can start ripping off some wins.
