He has the experience and we should see results after a recruiting class

Riley needs another QB to run the offense he pushed upon Armstrong to execute during the season. If the Huskers had the same 'establish the run first" game plan, as we ran against UCLA, we would have won 5-7 more games. If Armstrong is the only QB option in 2016, RUN the ball!

He really needs 2-3 years to get his players in there and working for him.

The third year of his coaching should tell us quite a bit.

Well, it's been 18 months, so it should be in place by now. these kids aren't stupid, and they are good athletes.

Needs to allow most of the cancerous Pelini boys to graduate first.

Need more than that (4-5 years). If people still don't see how dysfunctional Pelini's coaching style was, then they will never get it. Nebraska can't do what Kansas did to Gill. Only gave him 2 years. If NU does that I'm out.

If Tom would get involved and put pressure on Riley to produce or else, is the only way to get rid of this staff. I see next year being 4-8. the fans are going to get tired of these guys real fast. can they get better? SHOW US!!

A Coach needs 4 years to get all the players he recruited for his system in place

Some decisions that lost games have nothing to do with time. The record already could have been better than it was.

Exactly. If Riley had used an offensive gameplan similar to what we saw against UCLA, Nebraska would have had a 9-3 or 8-4 season, and been in a better bowl game.

No, he was replacing a winning coach, he should come in on fire. The fact that the Athletic director did not hire a winning coach makes it even more of a disaster. This coach has only ever proven to be a hair better than .500.

his system is already in place... in fact with his history, a 5 and 7 record is an incredible accomplishment..... 2016 will be worse..... too bad for the student athletes....

It's Nebraska. Harbaugh came into Michigan year one and took a group of players that were 500 last year and won. You have to really study Riley's decision making that lead to those close losses. If He continues to make horrible calls in year 2..Have to move on.

As long Armstrong is QB, he can not get his system up in running, I say three year will be required for both defense and offense will be in place.

New coaches need at least three years to get their system in place and recruit players that fit that system. Obviously, there have been coaches that have moved to schools and won big right away. That is the exception. Remember, Saban went 6 and 6 in his first year at Alabama.

i don't believe that 18 months is enough, he has Pelini recruits yet, and although they are some good kids, i think it will take at least 3 good recruiting classes for Coach Riley to get his own recruits and be able to show if he is the right pick for the job...

It is what it is. These players have responded well to this transition. We all have to be flexible in life. So do the players. The ruled of nature, "Do or die" Three years. It's only fair.

This team is as good as he will get, sorry to say. Obrien will be a better QB for Riley's system.

a good coach will evaluate the athletes he has, then he will determine how to use them.....not the other way around.....if we ran this offense that we did Saturday we wouldnt have played our bowl game yet.....I hope he understands that....if not the schedule gets no easier the next couple of years

He needs enough time to get his recruits in place and that's not enough time.

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

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.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

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.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

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.
