Rankings are BS as there are too many variables. Somebody who has way too much time and can't come up with anything better to write about.

Actually this ranking is about right. I'm not expecting better than a 9 or 10 win season in any of the seasons Riley is at Nebraska. I hope I'm wrong.

I think in 2-3 years, you'll see the Huskers back in the top 10-15 on a regular basis. This year, the Huskers will be back to 9 wins and finish in the top 25. Give it time.

So far I'd say show me! He hasn't yet. NU is soft and not tough. That is why turnover margin is terrible and the team has a lot of injuries.

Rankings are based on results, not on expectations.

He took a 9 win team and only won 6 (and would only have been 5 without a gift). Given how many teams there are out there and given his record, being ranked #41 is a gift.

A coach should be judged by what he puts on the field and Mike Riley is a .500 coach who has never won a championship in American Football. How long has the guy coached? 20-25 yrs. That's pretty bad.

Was Trev Alberts correct in keeping Nebraska men's basketball coach Fred Hoiberg for another year?

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.

I imagine the transfer portal had a lot to do with the timing.

It had to be done and it clear that things are going to happen at NU.

The team was not going to become better with their existing staff. Make the cut and start improving.

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.
