I think the talent is there, and a decent coaching staff can get more out of them. Still 3-4 defense which they started recruiting for.

Because Frost showed what he could do in 2 short years at UCF. But we need to be patient if it takes longer.

Some people in life just seem to have "it". Coach Frost has shown over and over that he has that quality. "it" rubs off on those around him, it inspires people to be more, try a little harder and push through adversity. The remarkable amount of success he has all his career is all the proof i need.

He's already done in less than two years at UCF... So he could pull a big upswing with us. But if he doesn't, I think we will support him for at least 5 years with improvements showing as he progresses. I am just happy no more of the Diaco blame game and the worst play-calling on offense.

I just think it's never been the kids. A good coach, as Nebraska has proven in the past, can make good athletes great through teaching, coaching, and believing. I pray that Scott and his staff are those coaches. It appears to be the case from what I have seen him do so far. Patience will be required

The talent is pretty good. The game-planning will be much better than we have seen in the recent past. They will be markedly better in a very short time.

Huskers have the talent, they're young and lack depth at several positions. With a coaching staff who can teach the fundamentals, develop players and do an effective job this year and next evaluating talent then two years, a Division West title should be well within reach.

Because there is enough young talent on the team to Win in the Big10 West. With the right coaching and scheme (see UCF as example) it can happen quickly

Because I have a TON of faith in Scott Frost. He knows the system, culture. The fans will let him do his thing without a lot of second-guessing. His personality and experience will compel fence-sitting recruits to give NU a shot. I'm COMPLETELY jazzed about Scott transforming NU.

I should qualify "contender" in my mind as challenger for the Big 10 Championship. That's enough for me at this point. From the outhouse to the Penthouse in 2 years, absolutely do-able with SF. (I won't be sad if it doesn't happen, just no more 50-point blowout losses to MN and IA ! )

I think if Scott Frost is named HC, it will be within 3 years. Ive watched Central Florida and it is the offensive scheme plus very sound defense that has made them so successful. He taught all that to UCF players within 2 years. There is no reason to think that UNL players are dumber than UCF.

It'll take 1 year to undo MR's "coachings", 1 year to implement the new system, and the 3rd year will show a scrappiness on the field we haven't seen in a LONG Time. So 3 to show competitiveness, 4 to be in national contention

If Frost comes he will fix the work ethic and discipline right away, but it will take at least 2-3 years to beef up the team to out-physical Wisconsin on the lines.

Things have changed since Bob Devaney's overnight success. So 1-2 years is just not realistic.

I expect us to be competing for the conference title in 3-4 years. No need to expect it to happen overnight; just let Frost work his magic.

Hoping that is 1-2 but trying to temper expectations and be realistic, I think 3-4 is more likely. You never know though, just look what SF did at UCF. There's no way anybody predicted that, even SF didn't think that transformation was going to be that quick.

I don't think we have the ol,dl or team speed to contend for anything for at least 3 years and thats being generous. Depending on how this year's recruiting class turns out it maybe 4 years.

Unless the new coaching staff can find ways to motivate the offensive line and the defense, its going to take time. The talent that is on roster now, demonstrated an ineptness for position responsibility this year, not sure how coaching factored into that.

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.

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.
