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.

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
