Good people as coaches. The line depleted, now is in the hands of a great upcoming coach. Linebackers and d-backs are in good hands.

I like their chances but it may take a few games with a young d-line. I wish the veterans would have stuck around 1 more year. Our young d-line improvement is the key i believe.

I don't think that it will happen this year. I think this year will be terrible. However I think 2017s defense could be pretty good. I feel better about the direction of the defense than the ofense.

To me, the 'D' coordinator is still a question mark. 'D' line is a question mark. Although I like John Parrella's chances of bringing them around.

Likely improvement in the DBs negated by weaker defensive line.

Did not see enough development last season to give me any meaningful reason to suggest that what is returning on the defensive side of the ball will be anywhere near what will be needed for a winning season.

Not this year with the lack of depth and meaningful experience on the defensive line. it all starts there. We're going in the right direction though.

Not sure. This year will tell a lot. I was hoping it was a aggressive defense, but I didn't see it last year. Only Nate Gerry at the end of the year got aggressive. No excuses this year, players know the defense, so now we will find out/

The D coordinator has NEVER had a top D so why would we expect one now - especially when the D line is so young?

Do I think it could be better, yes ….. but MR didn’t have a lot to work with considering frost didn’t recruit much if any. The D of course is a 180 turn around and I like MR philosophy of building a brotherhood bond between his players. He’s turned the ship around into the right direction !

Starting with a new system, new coach, starting with a worthless QB. The team stayed together and had the highest retention in the Big10. That says it all for me.

I believe the culture and brotherhood has taken a big step. Players are a team. Now we must get past the stigma of believing we can win the 4th quarter and close games. Now instilling the confidence.

Definitely building, and willing to make adjustments for any missteps. Aside from QB, is improving in every area. And QB is looking good with current recruits. Hopefully has staff straightened out.

Reasonable to impressive results given the circumstances. More importantly were his actions/decisions to further develop the entire program.

Hitting the ground running and get a recruiting class signed, difficult with a failed NE past He did miss on the quarterback and Purdy lost in the shuffle but excellent D w Tony W, hopeful offensive signs, better special teams. Hopefully a winning record and good QB play, Future looks bright

Much lot rot can be unnoticed for a long time, so can internal improvements, while the record wasn't a lot better, this program is in infinitely better shape than it was 14 months ago.

Everything but winning. But Satterfield will never give us the solid offense a championship team needs. I, along with many others, say we MUST be a run first offense (and to a fault). Anything else is a loser. I give Matt a B+ his first year.

Simple look where we came from, 8 years of loses, Riley & Frost total disappointments. In both cases the head coaching job at NE was too big for both of them. We now have a process just follow it and it is impressive so far! GBR!!

Love Rhule and truly believe in him picture. However his game management cost us a couple of games. You are paid to have situational awareness and planning. he does SO MICH SO well, but he did not manage end of games well in terms of clock management and understanding his limits with personnel

He seemed to want to fail the first year, so that subsequent years (with "His" guys) would look better.

A 5 win season is not up to Nebraska standards. Same old story losing close games and turnovers. Jeff Sims was a total failure

Everybody was happy with Jeff Sims until we found out he didn't have any "Fingers". Blame the coach...

There were some really questionable calls in some games re: going for a first down instead of going for a FG that cost them several games and trying some trick and fancy plays in the red zone but as others have said, he seems to have the program moving in the right direction.
