Probably hiring Pederson was the biggest mistake.

Bo Pelini lit a fire under the defense in his first year as DC. Nebraska would have been awesome the next year. I would have loved to have seen that.

We don't know what would have happened, but it could not have been any worse. We have been foundering since his firing. Scott Frost has a big job in pulling us out of the muck. He'll get it done.

Frank knows Nebraska football inside and out Peterson was an idiot and should’ve kept Frank. Peterson never should have been hired at Nebraska He was a total and complete idiot

Firing Frank got us away from our roots and our identity. O & D schemes change but an identity shouldn't. SF is trying to bring it back now after all these years.

Pederson was one of two arrogant Husker ADs trying to make a name for himself. Moral: Don't fire 9 win coaches.

HIRING Solich was the big mistake. He was over-matched. IMO, Tom Osborne shares a lot of blame for forcing Solich on the AD rather than having a national search. In 1997, NU could have had their pick of outstanding HC's. Now look at us.

It was bad... but not as bad as hiring Callahan. I dont know if Solich would have ever gotten over the hump... but Callahan sure as hell wasnt.

Indiana nearly lost to IU & WKU and the W over Idaho wasn't that impressive. They allowed IU RB Chase Brown 199 yds and WKU RB Kye Robichaux 135 yds. Grant, Ervin, Johnson & Yant will have a big day and help keep the defense off the field.

Motivation by Mickey, simpler defense and a week of focus on individual technique will get the Huskers on track...IF there is any on-field leadership from the players.

With the shock of losing a head coach and DC behind them, they two weeks of refocus and reset will benefit this talented team and the Huskers will have new inspiration to win this next contest.

I believe in MJ enough that I do believe he will somehow have found a way to get this team ready to perform up to their capabilities. After the NW gm, SF said the guys needed something to believe in. They have to start with themselves. MJ will have em' believing!

Unfortunately, the skers may not win again this year. They not be lookin too good. No offense but, enough of the dumb polls till they get better.

As of right now, the defense cannot stop anybody, the offense is absolutely anemic, team moral is in the toilet, we are on the road against an improved IU team. Outside of all that, I think we have a great shot.

The D-line for the Huskers will not be good enough to stop Indiana. The O-line will allow too many sacks.

I have seen no evidence, given the lack of coaching so far, that this team can rise to the challenge.

I think the team is lost even though MJ is the coach. It will be a reasonable effort, but ultimately, it will be a loss.

“Recruiting beats coaching”… true for skill positions, but not true for OL, DL, and LB positions. Very poor player development at NU and too late now that the season in underway. Wonder what Benhart would be like had he chose Iowa or Wisconsin.

This team has been neglected for several years. Frost, it seems, spent more time on personal problems but was happy to take the salary. My gut feeling is he was trying to get fired BEFORE Oct 1st and he did everything he could to do that, including the onside kick.

No reason to start winning now. MJ seems like a great coach but you have a front line that does not want to protect the QB. They look like the basketball team with no will nor want. As Tom Kropp said when he chose Kearney St BB over UNL “they can make a good player bad”
