The recruiters are going to close strong

Not likely - these guys have never recruited very well. I see this class being 6, 7 or even 8th in the big ten and that won't cut it.

This Q asks if there are positive signings upcoming–not currently. Reilly is closing in on several 3 & 4 star recruits and should land them soon. NE has not been w/ the big boys for awhile so expecting 5 star recruits now is ridiculous. Lets just aim for a top 20-25 class this year and build w/ that

The 4 and 5 star recruits start developing relationships as sophomores so it's gonna take a few years to really get this machine rolling

Lets be serious...it can't be any worse than Pelini's recruiting and then having a good number of players leaving the program due to him. Look at the recruits that played this year..better than Pelini's starters

really? Are you serious? Or just trying to get a laugh! Pelini's recruits are the starters. Stanley morgan was a peleini recruit - only Reilly recruit to see th efield was the LB and that was due to them being thin there and having injuries.

Kevin Bolin you are right on, I agree with you. We will find out very soon on signing day just how bad it is.

I believe that Riley is a better recruiter than Bo Pelini was.This year will be better than last year, and next year will be better than this year. If this doesn't happen, then we will be looking for a new head coach.

Always hoping for the best. A good attitude and some good coaching can make much out of no-matter-how-many-stars a player has.

They seem to have stalled and the talent level being pursued does not appear to be at the level necessary to play with the big boys again.

Riley is in his 60's and Eichorst might not be around NU too much longer. That and the poor record last year doesn't promise much stability or success over the next 4-5 years for recruits.

No. Just read this stat. "The Big Ten East division has 52 of the conference's 60 4-star recruits this year" We need to step up our game and start bringing in talent if we want to compete with OSU/UM/PSU/MSU.

All of this talk about what Riley & Co. could do with the resources available at Nebraska, and they have done very little. We need Top 15 classes in order to compete for championships... instead we'll finish closer to 40

You are so right! Look at Oregon St. now that he is gone - they have a much better recruiting class with their new coach then Reilly ever had there. They may even finish in the top 30; so don't try to blow smoke at me and tell me he and his staff are good recruiters.

in general yes, this year, not really. I think their focus is on 2017 although that may be a mistake unless we have some great Jems from previous classes (redshirts) we are unaware of.

Not necessarily Riley's fault... times have changed and the Husker name draw is now just so-so. Roughly middle of the pack class in the Big10.

You hire a big-name coach such as Saban or Harbaugh or similar, and the kids will go to Alaska to play for him. Nobody cares about Riley; he's not a hot commodity. It's as simple as that.

I don't have much enthusiasm for this whole Mike Riley staff. Seems like a nice guy, but not a successful coach by Nebraska's standards by any means.

We just keep coming up short on the high profile kids so it is a bit discouraging, but having said that I LOVE the fact that we are going after high profile players. I'm very optimistic that this staff WILL bring in the players needed, but it would seem this year we just don't have the draw.

you need to take your rose colored glasses off and see this staff for what it is Riley left the cupboard bare in Oregon st. when he left and he will do so at UN too best not let him stay long

I'm just still not impressed with Riley and staff - Even if the guy recruits at the top of the heap for the next few years, and starts putting together some wins, he will be set for retirement in 5 or 6 years (or earlier if the wins don't start coming), and then we start over AGAIN! GBR!!!

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.
