I know him the best, and he left an impressive record on and off the field over a long period which included a variety adversities. Perhaps at a later date I would answer "Scott Frost."

I confess I wasn't thrilled in the first few years after he took over from the Bobfather, but he continued to improve and demonstrated that he could both build character and win the big game.

This isnt even a question, not taking anything from Bob, but Tom was calling plays when he won his 2 championships . And the 25 years of head coaching with at min of 9 wins is something that just don

No comparison-with what he has done not only on the field but for the whole state of Nebraska-and done it all with integrity and class.

Why isn't Riley a stand alone option.... That is hard to say with a straight face. Also, Osborne over Devaney because I didn't exist when Devaney coached.

Devany got it started but Tom persevered and keep it going for 25 years. Built it and maintained it in a changing game environment and style.

Devany Is the one who turned a pathetic football program into a champion chip program. Osborne inherited a championship football program.

There would not be a coach Osborne at Nebraska if not for Bob Devaney. He had the foresight to take over as Athletic Director and make sure Tom Osborne had a chance to grow into the coach he became.

Devaney took a losing program and left it in the hands of an excellent head coach. Enough sais.

Bob started it all, hired Tom and got it all rolling.

Bob Devaney started and Tom Osborne continued Bob's legacy. Tom learned from Bob, not vice versa.

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

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.

I imagine the transfer portal had a lot to do with the timing.

It had to be done and it clear that things are going to happen at NU.

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.

Are the problems the Huskers have had closing out games more due to scheme or execution issues?

I think you have to consider the fact that talent-wise we are fairly equal to our competition. Realizing that, we have (or should have) a 50-50 chance of doing what we want. We simply don't know how to win. Thus our odds fall to 20-80. Winning will change EVERYTHING.

In just 2 years UCF implemented Frost's offense and was executing it FLAWLESSLY...but they still look like the Keystone cops in year 4 at Nebraska..
