Having only 2 losses as late as November 20 certainly qualifies for an A.

The talent is there, but the focus and subsequent execution isn’t there. Too many mistakes. And if I see another shotgun formation at the one yard line, I’m giving up and watching the LPGA.

Some decent progress on D. Offense clearly regressed from 18 and 19. Penalties and bonehead mistakes at crucial moments and inconsistent play on the O line continues to crush the O.

One part of the culture hasn't changed: Discipline. Until it does, we'll remain sub 500. Too many penalties, turnovers, coaching errors to win those close games. Talent gets us close, but discipline gets us wins D improved, O regressed wtout a WR who can spread the field & a QB who can pass long

There seems to be lack of development is many areas. Still too many penalties. Still losing the turnover battle. Still lacking progress in special teams. Still inefficient in the downfield passing game. Still little breakaway long runs. Frost must bring a winning season in 2021 or seat will get hot.

I am a Scott Frost supporter and believe he is the man for the job. However, I am not sure I can say that about all his assistants. Austin needs to produce results. Coach V is supposed to be a QB Guru but it has not translated to the field. I am confident Frost is the right man for the job.

I am surprised at the lack of progress. For all the advantages of being Nebraska and its football pedigree, why are schools like Cincinnati (and others like Liberty and Coastal Carolina) easily surpassing us? If it wasn't for Scott Frost I would make a change. But I love Scott Frost.

If the question was centered on Defense, I'd give that an A- or B+. I'm very encouraged by that but every bit of progress there was offset but an anemic offense. However, Martinez was much improved on the back half of the season outside of the Minny game. In total I'll give it a C.

Martinez was best as freshman coach need to match plays to talent and run some option football. How about the I Deidrick is a great fullback and Robison as I back would be a hell of a challenge.

They have gone from less than mediocre to one if the worse teams in the BIG. This is in spite of having more talent than many of the teams that have passed them.

Anyone who watched this season would know there was no progress, aside from possibly the defense. Offense and special teams were atrocious.

Atrocious is a bit harsh for special teams. Culp was an All Big 10 kicker. We were on our 2nd string punter to start and 3rd string the last few games. I'm not worried about special teams.

3-5. Ouch. They look like a team with little to no discipline. Penalties, turnovers, missed tackles, horrid special teams.

Overall a C. A year that has been nothing but endless strangeness along with awful (and I don't mean just football related) 2020 gave us an improved defense that made Chin and his assistants look like the best coaches on staff.

D+ HS level football is right. No discipline. We need a BIG running back, a BIG fullback. Wandel can't continue to take a beating; targeting, hands-to-the-face, holding. Either the receivers are slacking off and not knowing routes, or they are a discipline problem.

Some progress on defense but 3-5 doesnt warrant an A or B. Ended with a win but it included same issues. Those turnovers and penalties will get you beat 95% of the time.

Still seeing turnovers, penalties, special teams meltdowns, and some other usual suspects. The defense did look good at times, but consistency hasn’t entirely been established there. You have to hope there’s a future eruption just below the surface, but that’s been a long held hope.

One quality all great, or even good, defenses possess is the ability to pressure a quarterback. We very rarely made any QB sweat, giving them more than ample time to pick us apart (especially on 3rd downs).

Anyone who thinks that the ‘skers have progressed is asleep at the wheel... 3 years in with Frost & his crew and it couldn’t be more disappointing.... they’re a joke and it is quite apparent that nothing will be changing anytime soon ..the program is Broke!! ..

Mistakes, penalties, fumbles, coaching, scheme and youth. I like Frost. Players are playing harder and more physical. Many of the players came from winning programs. Need that winning attitude. IA, NU, WI, IL, MN and OSU have that attitude and swagger when they play Nebraska.

The same mistakes in year 3, not a good look. Quarterback play is worse than ever. Offense scores less points than recent memory. Special teams woes, penalties.

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?

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.
