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!

These coaches can win. Don't get your panties in a bunch and give up on them.

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.

Offensive line sucks. Powerball pick six lee will give points away and lose momentum

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.

Very poor ball club. Mentally weak, un prepared and not physically tough.

I think, just like Wisconsin, we are going to wear out in the second half and it will get ugly.

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.

We've been telling Riley for 2 1/2 years that we must RUN FIRST. Now it is too late.

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.

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.

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.
