Collective record of our first two choices as head coach....Chip Kelly and Scott Frost. They are scuffling along. I think both are a little bit on the arrogant side, though I could be wrong about Frost. I don't think Kelly will ever have UCLA winning like he did at Oregon. He won't be any better than Jim Mora IMO. His ego is such that he thinks he can take the equivalent of West Coast Pitt and win big. He's sadly mistaken. Nebraska is one of the toughest jobs in the country (along with Tennessee, albeit for the different reasons). Nebraska was the perfect machine in the 1990s when they had legions of interior linemen from the Midwest, coupled with all those skill players from the coasts. Roster limitations slew the husker beast, but not the expectations...to churn out Tom Osborne-esque behemoths. To make matters worse, they're in the Big 10. Nebraska-Minnesota just doesn't have the same appeal as those old Big 12 matchups. What 5-star recruit from Texas wants to play Northwestern or Purdue? I guess the counter-argument is that they lost their starting quarterback and also the fact that Frost won big at Central Florida (hardly a titillating program). To be fair, we're not an 'easy' program either...with our Bama-like expectations and relatively little history to back it up (aside from being fortunate enough to have two of the greatest college coaches that ever lived). For us, Mullen is a pivotal coach in our storied history. Currently, we live in this binary history of OBC and UM.... Mullen doesn't have to be as great as either one, but if he can just be as good as he was in Starkville, it could redefine our program in a positive, lasting way. Despite the UK game, it appears that we made a sound decision and the other guys could be like our Rich Rods (reference to him passing up the Bama job)...and no, I'm not suggesting that CDM is Saban!
