Continuing the heritage is important. Frank Solich should never have been fired after a 9-2 season.

Coach Frost is the only choice for the next head coach for the Big Red. Give him the time he needs and the support from the fans that he truly deserves. Live in Tennessee - LOVE NEBRASKA

Frost is a native, understands the culture, realizes if you can't run, you can't win. A good run offense is a GREAT defense.

I think not only would he hit it out of the park from a results stand point, he is only 42 and the only candidate that would probably make NU his last HC job. I would definitely take 25 + yrs of SF!! GBR!!

The decision to hire Frost should come from the power of Big Red fans. If Scott is willing to come home... it is the A.D.'s job to not mess this up. Firing Riley was an easy decision. Hiring Frost is a No-Brainer!!

Home grown. Known quantity and quality. Key mentee of Tom Osborne and would be wise to seek advise. Fully aware of the game. Still has a lot of energy. He will bring NU back to the national forefront and make the climb fun.

His entire life has been influenced by really good coaching and work ethic. He also has the insider view of what it is like to play for the Huskers. The fans will give him the time to excel. He is also a great guy from all accounts. GBR

Scott has a lot of similar characteristics as the most successful Husker coach, Tom O. All we need to do as fans is exercise some patience. NU will rise again.

As Nebraska fans, we need to back off this topic until Saturday night. UCF has done something special this season and those kids need not be distracted in what will be the most important game in nearly all of their careers. They and Coach Frost deserve that we all chill for a few more days.

I'd like a coach that can inspire, teach and motivate. The Husker teams of the last 10 years or so seem to lack any enthusiasm or will to win. Pelini was an embarrassing maniac on the sideline and Riley had zero emotion or fire. Something in the middle would be nice.

Scott Frost is the coach Nebraska needs to get the football program back on its feet again. They need to give him time to implement his style of offense and to get the defense back to being blackshirts.

He is a hometown coach who remembers and lives the actions of a prior legendary husker football coach. Coach Frost will be given as much time as he needs to fill his roster and bring back the tradition on both sides of the ball.

I think over time it's proven that this position needs to have a leader that understands work ethic and our history - no better way to get that done than with not only a previously player but one from a team that brought us our last national championship and the commitment it takes to get there.

This is the best coaching fit in the last 20 years. We can't afford another 20 years of the coaching carousel and failed coaching and offensive scheme experiments. Bring Frost back, resurrect a true bone-crushing Black-Shirt defense and smash-mouth run-pass-option offense like the old days. GBR!

Scott Frost is a winner and understands exactly what it takes to get Nebraska back to playing physical Nebraska football. His record speaks for itself: at Nebraska, the NFL, at Northern Iowa, Oregon and at UCF. Tired of clueless Athletic Directors picking coaches who field finesse teams.

I believe Scott can be very successful, but we have to keep our expectations realistic. It may take 3 to 4 years to build the roster to fit the new schemes.

We need a coach that has ties to the Osborne Era. Someone that believes in the program. Someone that believes in the program. Plus you cant argue with the quick turnaround sucess he has had at UCF. I like the occasional option in his offense as well

Besides the Husker ties he seems to be the best coach available when it comes to fit, culture, and brining the fan base together. There will always be some people not happy about it and no guarantees he can do what needs to be done but overall would make a great hire.

Scott is a good coach, but people forget he had a slow start when he first came to Nebraska. At UCF he inherited those players, he really doesn't have a complete resume. I would prefer a Les Miles who could bring back the Black Shirts. Scott will be around for years.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!
