I agree with some of the others that posted. We have to give MR at least another year to get his system in place. Keep firing the coaches and nobody will even consider coaching NU.

There are some gaps in coaching/recruiting that need to be addressed ASAP or this team will continue to struggle. Specifically, offensive tackle and TE need a major upgrade or they will be unable to run this offense. They also need a HUGE (330+) space-eating D-tackle!

Because you don't rebuild a team in 3 years. And I am not an emotional, reactionary child. I can look at the variables and see the "why" behind the "how". MR should get 4 years. But our fan base is dimwitted and emotional.

Progress is being made. Strong interest from highly touted recruits. I agree with Foster. We don't want to be Wisconsin. Riley deserves another year to implement his system of balance offense. Defense simply wore down the other night. Give Diaco some time to build that up.

I think at this point you need to be a little bit realistic and a little bit "ride or die." I'm anxious to see what adjustments can be made or not made defensively.

I don't think Riley is a great coach, but we can't get caught in the cycle where we're firing our coach every few years.

we were owned on the field by a WI team that was us in '97. I don't see an aggressive O-line that moves people. They seem apathetic and no fire to win.

Nebraska's reputation is gone. Teams are no longer in awe and that means recruits aren't either. We will remain at the bottom of the conference for a generation just as we were at the top for that long.

Just say it out loud: We haven't been a legitimate contender to win the B1G since we were blown out by Wisconsin in the championship game. Has anything improved since that low point?

There are too many "moving parts" in a passing attack. The offensive line has to give the quarterback a clean pocket, he quarterback has to make the right decision, the ball has to be thrown well and the receiver has to catch the ball. As opposed to run blocking and hand offs/pitches.

I graduated from Pius X in 1970 and graduated from NU in 1975 I often wandered what it must have been like to be a KU Jayhawk football fan watching their team get throttled by better or often times weaker opponents. I no longer wonder.

I don't see improvement. Same play calling on offense. How many up the middle plays can you run. No slants, no sweeps around the ends. Defense is so so. Can't really stop the short passing game. Big holes in the middle of the line. Just hoping for a bowl game. I would agree we OS.

3-3 with a loss to NIU in your 3rd year at the helm is not gonna cut it but.....I do think Riley deserves at least 4 years, if not 5. Who is it that fans who disagree with that, think we are going to be able to go out and get?? Let's be realistic, nobody is beating down the door to submit an app!!

I've said for a long time that NU needs to pony up and pay for an Elite coach. Unfortunately, every (including those who post on this forum) mocked me, laughed at me, called me names, and were just plain d***s . Now there seems to be momentum building that NU needs to PAY for an Elite coach. Hmm

Still no consistency on offense. The defense is better but still not good enough to bend their will on opponents.

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 !

Starting with a new system, new coach, starting with a worthless QB. The team stayed together and had the highest retention in the Big10. That says it all for me.

I believe the culture and brotherhood has taken a big step. Players are a team. Now we must get past the stigma of believing we can win the 4th quarter and close games. Now instilling the confidence.

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.

Reasonable to impressive results given the circumstances. More importantly were his actions/decisions to further develop the entire program.

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

He seemed to want to fail the first year, so that subsequent years (with "His" guys) would look better.

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.
