The team keeps fighting even in the Ohio State game. Physical and mental maturity is needed, something that may not be a freshman or sophomore strength. Two more years can make a big difference

I was teetering on this vote. Our defense is definitely better than last year, but still has a long ways to go. Offensively, last years group of seniors were more important than we thought.

We can't see the improvements in game day statistics and score, but I believe the most important thing Scott has brought to us is a unified belief that will return us to a tradition of excellence.

We are seeing improvements in some areas, but not in others. It takes time and patience is wearing thin because it’s been 15yrs of frustration.

Look at the roster, out of 150 players approximately 100 are lower classman. Fan expectation is unrealistic. There is a reason Frost was given a 7 year contract. It is painful but will change.

I agree with Linda. I get it’s year 2, but this offense is too finesse and soft for the Big 10. I’m sure it will get better, but I wish we were still doing Power I. Hard to prepare for.

I am worried we won't have the desire and the fight to bounce back. If we couldn't match Minnesota in a very important road game, after Frost kept saying they are having great practices, then what?

This time last year we were trending upward, AM was a straight stud even in games we lost, and every game looked a little better than the one before it. This year they honestly look like 2017.

I feel the cupboard was pretty bare when Frost arrived. We made some good gains the first year. Now we have a lot of younger guys and very little depth so we have had less success,

These coaches have stressed the 3 star and development route. I do not think these untested coaches are doing a good job of teaching fundamentals. As coach T said its a game of blocking and tackling

I think most fans were expecting too much after Frost's amazing rebuild of the UCF team. This is the big 10!! We also thought that Martinez would be even better in his 2nd year.

The O- line has taken a step back and I have not seen improvement since the South Alabama game. Also, the D- line got pushed around by a mediocre offensive line.

I'm concerned simply because Coach Frost was so totally wrong with his own assessment of the progress of this team before the season started. Pre-season we were all sure of a 9-10 or even 11 win 2019.

We were so sure of a 9, 10 or even 11 win team before the season started?? Who is we?? Sorry my friend but the realist of the bunch were hoping for 8-4 and would accept 7-5 this year! You're NUTS!

Scott said this was going to be a major rebuild and I think this will prove true. Neither OL or DL look anything like the physical specimens we had in the 90s, as an example.

Take a page from Mike Leach at WSU, who told his team they were " slow, fat and lazy". Then, he took away all social media platforms to them. No Wistroms or Glovers for the same reason?

I am more than a bit concerned. There's no improvement this past week, or the OSU game (see MI 2018) - heck, it there's progress look at the Ill game + loss to CU, surely O-line is worse & Adrian!!!

I was at the game in Minneapolis... I’ve never seen Nebraska lines get thrown around like rag dolls, especially on defense. It could have easily had been 70-0. There’s NO excuse for getting blown out.

Two years after Riley I still see the same errors occurring. Turnovers, killer penalties, poor tackling. How long can you blame Riley's staff before you start blaming Frost's? (And I love Scott BTW)

Very young team. Many left when Frost came in. Regarding line play, we use to reload on both sides of the line. Many were Fifth year seniors. Takes time to develop line play with consistency.

More than "a bit" concerned. The team quit. The Blackshirt program hurts this team and has for many years. These are not blackshirts ala Winstrom, Glover,Peter's, etc.

Overall play is down compared to late last season. No improvements have been seen since game 1. Coaches talk positive but on field play doesn’t reflect the talk. At this rate, two more years needed

This team is regressing not progressing because they bought into all the pre-season hype. They better pick themselves up off the ground and play with pride or no Bowl Game for 3rd straight year!

Still beating ourselves with penalties at critical times. Still getting beat on both sides of line. Still missing too many tackles. Lack of depth everywhere.

Too bad it is not a yes or no answer. This team has taken a step back in every area except defense where it is about the same. OL, QB, WR, RB are not where we ended last session.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
