Columbo would approach the offense and say "One more thing" Clearly the culture problems are on the offense. Defense is improving, how about the offense? Who is transferring after being important players now or the near future? How many offensive players came back for the bonus year? Defense? Hmmm

12-20. We are squarely in "until it shows up on the field, it isn't fixed" territory. I am not holding my breath. The problems this team has on the field are largely because the HC doesn't know how to HC.

If you're not concerned, you need to slow down on the kool-aid.

I think Coach Frost has done a good job off pealing off all the duct tape and cleaning up the off-field and locker room cancer. The wins come once the culture and buy-in is accepted and expected by everyone.

Kids are different today. some with superiority complexes before they have achievement. Thus, a much harder group to coach. Unless Scott goes back to Nebraska Brawn (Linemen), power running (with current offensive scheme), we'll have trouble, and skill players will go elsewhere.

Football success is complicated (- making Devaney/Osborne/Solich era an exceptional achievement!). Culture affects everything - it is both tangible (behaviors) and intangible (norms). Norms strongly influence behavior, ergo, a healthy obsession with excellence MUST be the norm- I don't see this???

Can the culture play quarterback?

Winning solves a lot of things. Most likely every team has issues. Students aren't as intense as they were years ago. Too many distractions to expect 100% buy-in. Senior leadership must get better. What of the culture of the coaches? HCSF, please stop referring to them as 'kids' all the time.

No one likes to lose. A winning culture comes from actually winning. It is a lot easier to get up for those early lifting sessions when you see the results on the field. It is a lot easier to get ready for that tough game against a tough opponent when you think you can beat them.

Instant gratification and lack there of is the major problem. A lot of dead weight has been cut from the team by personal choice or the coaches choice. The vote to not play in the bowl game said a lot about the past culture. Most of those "leaders" are gone. Lets see how this year plays out.

These issues are so overblown, the transfers hurt but can be understood, foregoing the bowl game made sense, what does a bowl game do for the team when it's a fly in, fly out situation. The proposed cancellation of the Okla. was a mistake but far overblown.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Once again, the south stadium gets short changed.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
