    In my head--- UF
    An embarrassing loss to a terrible Purdue team

    He won at UCF. That's conference is about as competitive as the ACC this year.

    Isn't that the gist of his gripe to the Big 10?

    Needs his Big 10 schedule to resemble his UCF schedule (SOS), in order to duplicate those kinds of results. :D

    Frost wants:
    Less OSU-PSU-Michigan.
    More Indiana-Purdue.
    Loses to both.
    Ouch!
    Maybe call the ACC and see if they have an opening.

    Frost remembers when Nebraska played in the no D Big 12. Nebraska move to the Big 10 power football and better D league does not play well to his system, especially as it gets colder. Nebraska has not been the same since. Now he is playing against experienced coordinators that can game plan for his scheme. He has gone from playing cupcakes to being the cupcake.

    UCLA starting to play better under Chip. Beat Stanford, Arizona and Colorado their last 3 games. Will be interesting to see how they play versus Utah in the road.

    “Scott Frost is now 8-13 (.400) at Nebraska. His predecessor, Mike Riley, who the Huskers paid $6.2 million to leave, was 19-19 (.500) in Lincoln.”

    He will be OK there given time,
    however they have a long road to playoff worthiness.

    This is exactly why AD’s foolishly get into ridiculous situations of paying massive exit buyouts to coaches. I’m not saying it will happen with Frosty, because it likely won’t. Just that this is the nonsense that gets them in bad situations.

    Recruiting stability. Needs to build a roster of 'his guys' seems to be the consensus in Lincoln. The nostalgia factor doesn't hurt, either.

    Would you want to go play in the frozen tundra? I wouldn't either. It's probably a career speed bump at best, maybe a complete detour. He has his work cut out for him.

    If he goes 8 and 13 in the next 21, he will be gone. He still had plenty of time left on the contract for recruits.

    He has proven he can win as a collegiate head coach, unlike Muschamp who got a huge contract extension that he didn’t deserve. I think Frost is a good coach, but I’m not sure it can be at Nebraska.

    Not the time left, but the appearance of stability. Smart move, as Frost is probably the best shot they've got at this point. No other hot up and comer is headed there, nor any established guy, so might as well grind it out with Frost.

    Playing the long game, which is really their only play.

    Exactly. Imagine if a kid is sold on playing for him but there is no assurance he will be around when you do. Now you are stuck in Nebraska AND playing for an unknown in am unknown system

    I’m just befuddled at how public schools get away with this. I know it’s athletic funding separate from academics but to extend a coach that has a pretty massive losing record and 5 years left on his current contract? That’s pure incompetence IMO.

    Any “confidence” you need to show in that coach was communicated the day you signed him to a 7 year deal. 2 years extra 2 years later is just incompetence unless he’s already turned the ship around. Spoiler: he hasn’t.

    Players aren't that stupid. If he keeps losing, he will be gone. The extension doesn't mean anything.

    Disagree. It does provide at least some assurance. To each their own
