Tennessee looked like it had better athletes on the field across the board. Bigger, stronger, faster on both sides of the ball. There is a lot of work to be done getting the O and D lines where they need to be to play championship caliber teams. I think Riley knows it and can do the job.

I don't know. I didn't bother to witness another loss to any ranked team.

Totally incapable of blocking at the line. Outplayed, out-muscled....not enough talent.

I kept wondering why Gates wasn't given any help. Why no double teaming against Barnett?

Since I can't click both, I chose defense, all season long they have been dogged by not showing up till the 4th quarter.

The lack of coaching and talent became demostrably apparent. If a team wants to compete it MUSTbe talented in all positions with depth for the guys with a knuckle on the ground. Otherwise you will only be competitive with teams such as Indiana, Purdue and so on.

Easy vote here because Tommy, Westy and Newby did not play. The defense was atrocious and we just can't ever sack the QB and show that we can shut people down and show up when the offense needs em most.

linebackers were out of position and lost most of the night. Plus the lack of fundamentals in tackling!!!

SOFT ZONE/NO PRESSURE - Banker utilized the zone all year with mediocre results against pushover teams. Is it a surprise that potent offenses and even some not-so-potent (looking at you Iowa) were able to exploit it at will? When you play a soft zone and can't apply pressure to the QB you're done.

Defense is supposedly the easier to play, but for some reason, we made it looking like diarrhea offense for the other team...........

Well we do pretty good against teams without any speed and much athleticism. Western Michigans offensive line is twice as good as ours, why?defensive line too!!!!!

The tackling was terrible, they would throw their bodies in front of the ball carrier, no wrapping up, no sticking the ball carrier. It's like they were afraid to hit them.

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.
