Out took over 15 years to dismantle what was a dominant Nebraska football program and its going to take more than a year to get back to what they were.

Easy to trust him because this is his first year and many coaches in their first year with a new program did not have amazing success. Issues but they will be resolved in the future.

Scott's the right guy for this, it's going to take time, but improvement will come in chunks when he begins to turn it around. He lost to Mich 56-14 his first year at UCF. in for the long haul.

His resume for developing kids coming in that are more the 3 star kids as it’s rare Nebraska can real in the 4 & especially 5 star kids … he’s proven he can develop those kids into stars that are being drafted into the NFL … something that only Dr Tom could seem to do in the past !

First of all, you can discount all of the "thumbs down" votes that wanted Mickey, they'd vote against any new hire. MJ was the interim coach, he wasn't the next in line, nor was he fired as HC. Rhule commanded the room today, when it took Bill Moos to do this last time out... That tells us a lot

Proven builder and evident respect for Nebraska. So his overall college coaching record is .522; his two year 1s combined it's .125 (3-21) taking over damaged programs; year 2s is .520 (13-12) and his 3 years 3-4 it's .756 (31-10). Looks like a builder to me. Keep MJ and Busch and it should go well.

When it comes to coaching hires, there's no such thing as a "sure thing" or a guarantee of success (see Scott Frost). I think TA did a great job of executing a diligent and thorough nationwide search that resulted in a very good hire. One that gives Nebraska a great chance to turn it around quickly!

Good point. If Rhule was so good, why did he leave Temple or BU? One could argue for the $, but he’s obviously not committed to a program for the long run. He played TA for a fool but unfortunately Rhule held all the cards bc TA was desperate.

Once again Neb hired the “man” rather than hiring someone who can fix the problems of poor defense and losing on both sides of the line of scrimmage. 64 days? He obviously was not the first choice.

Washout from the NFL that reported had to be persuaded a 2nd time to take the job. Previous record against ranked teams is zero wins. Runs an spread offense with more focus on the pass than the run, might not work in the B10. Baylor was not a rebuild. He did nothing with them the 1st 2 years.
