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

There are some guys in there, but we need a couple years of recruit classes to be competitive in the BIG

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.

Optimistic with SF but agree with the others it will take 3 or more to undo 15 years of crap football

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.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).

Do you think Trev Alberts was correct to push for the coaching staff changes before season end?

It was right to do sooner than later

Should have waited until season was over

The defense has made progress. The offense not so much. The real problem is Frost's dedication to Martinez. Adrian is a great guy, but his minuses exceed his pluses.

The production was there from those coaches. Better to make the decision then, so you can still have a positive impact with recruiting.

If you are not going to make new hires before the end of the season anyway, what was the purpose in firing them now? It will be interesting to see how the offense performs, but I can't see this as beneficial.
