I am utterly baffled why you wouldn’t play the qb that gave you The best chance to win and at that moment in time it was clearly McCaffrey...

AM is becoming another Tommie Armstrong. Up and Down - not consistent - flashes of greatness but turnover prone. McCaffrey seems to be the better fit.

Martinez has not been what he was last year all this season. He only had Martinez throw 18 times and so if your aren't going to throw much anyway then why not put the better runner in, c'mon coach!!!

Adrian has not gotten the job done this year and McCaffrey came in and electrified the team and crowd. Is there something wrong with throwing a TD? He is then benched for the rest of the game?

AM has some issues; when he is on he is great, but something is wrong. Is he “overthinking” his position? Maybe. I’d have given McCaffrey more opportunities.

AM wasn't doing the job. McA couldn't have done any worse and probably would have done much better. To me, Scott's two biggest problems, special teams and no Qb rotation.

In this case the 89,000 fans chanting "Luke!!!" had it right. One pass for the day, rolling to his left. One perfect strike for a TD. The kid elevates everyone play. He is most certainly a gamer.

We are finished. Adrian has something on Frost to the point that Scott doesn't care whether we win the games. We LOST 4 last year because he ran off Tristan Gebbia YEAR OVER.

Obviously something was not right with Martinez; whether it was injury or something else. I understand Coach Frost staying committed to his guy; the #1 QB; but Nebraska NEEDED this win.

He should have been the Q-back the whole game, Sorry but Martinez is done, and is showing no effort, Luke is the Q-back for the future at Nebraska.

You could see and feel the fire with the team when Luke is in the game. Adrian had confidence issues all year. Not sure why, but it was unfortunate for the team. Tough decisions ahead for Scott.

Adrian is a great athlete who appears to have a confidence issue. The stage might be too big for him mentally. Luke has been groomed for this his whole life.

Also Coach Frost coaches much better with Luke than he does with Adrian. Adrian is just more hesitant than Luke is and I think the injury bug has him mentally scared.

Luke is next years starter. it is a no brainers. If Frost decides to be Bo Pelini and insist he is right and everyone else is wrong and stick with AM the Huskers will get another year of no bowl.

Go with the hot hand. If Luke had just been lucky because they expected run from him, he too would bog down and then you know it's not the qb but the great defensive thry were facing.

A player playing with confidence vs a player struggling. The entire team plays at a different upbeat tempo and speed when McCaffery is in the game. Even from a 2nd/3rd string role he commands the O!

Because its been obvious for most if not all season AM isn't right in mind or body. Frost went all in and doubled down on him being "The" guy. Vedral or McCaffrey should've been in after 1st qtr.

We needed a spark. They put him in at WR and QB in the 1st with success, then disappeared until late in 4th when it was all but too late. Needed to unload bag of tricks in this one and didn't do it.

Do I think it could be better, yes ….. but MR didn’t have a lot to work with considering frost didn’t recruit much if any. The D of course is a 180 turn around and I like MR philosophy of building a brotherhood bond between his players. He’s turned the ship around into the right direction !

Definitely building, and willing to make adjustments for any missteps. Aside from QB, is improving in every area. And QB is looking good with current recruits. Hopefully has staff straightened out.

Hitting the ground running and get a recruiting class signed, difficult with a failed NE past He did miss on the quarterback and Purdy lost in the shuffle but excellent D w Tony W, hopeful offensive signs, better special teams. Hopefully a winning record and good QB play, Future looks bright

Everything but winning. But Satterfield will never give us the solid offense a championship team needs. I, along with many others, say we MUST be a run first offense (and to a fault). Anything else is a loser. I give Matt a B+ his first year.

Simple look where we came from, 8 years of loses, Riley & Frost total disappointments. In both cases the head coaching job at NE was too big for both of them. We now have a process just follow it and it is impressive so far! GBR!!

Love Rhule and truly believe in him picture. However his game management cost us a couple of games. You are paid to have situational awareness and planning. he does SO MICH SO well, but he did not manage end of games well in terms of clock management and understanding his limits with personnel

There were some really questionable calls in some games re: going for a first down instead of going for a FG that cost them several games and trying some trick and fancy plays in the red zone but as others have said, he seems to have the program moving in the right direction.
