The OP said Jerry would get them back to 8 wins a season. He didn't say he would walk in and win 8 games a season from day one. By looking at his career in its entirety you are choosing an irrelevant sample set to prove your point. Is Kill not winning 8 games in his first two seasons at Northern Illinois or Minnesota relevant to whether he'd be able to get Nebraska back to 8 wins a season -- no because no one in their right mind would have expected anyone to win 8 games in those seasons with those teams.

You are right that I didn't use the right term. You didn't cherry pick because that would mean you ignored the germane information -- you too broadly picked your sample set instead of too narrowly picking.
Sorry I offered you Jerry

From what I can tell, Frost ran things loosely and lacked some structure.
Not sure if true.

Changes Trev might be looking for is more structure on practices, schedules, etc., and holding assistant coaches accountable.
Also defensively, changes need to happen.

A good presser to watch of what NEB athletic director had to say. Good public speaker.

Haven’t seen Dave Clawson’s name thrown around much. As a Wake fan I hope that doesn’t happen.

He’s a little older so maybe not what Nebby wants, but he has a solid track record of turning programs around. If he can make Wake into a conference contender, he can certainly bring Nebby back to respectability.

Just admit you were talking out your ass for a change, fraud.
It's like Trev just gave his buddy a golden parachute. Nebraska was foolish to not negotiate the price down, seeing how he was getting fired on 10/1 regardless. But when you're dealing with people who have millions, I guess they'll throw an extra 7.5 down just to get him off the sidelines.

Trev Alberts doubled down and darn near pounded his shoe on the podium when asked what qualities he will look for the most in the next coach. He answered with with strong conviction what he wants most in a coach is someone who hates losing more than he enjoys winning.

That 100% describes Urban Meyer. Don't know if rumors have any basis but he is available before the early signing period.

We will miss him. There is a lot of throwing up in Lincoln.

Had the thought this morning this firing was reminiscent of Glen Mason's termination after the historic loss to Texas Tech in the 2006 Insight Bowl. Concerns had been building around Mason after 10 years of moderate success but no breakthrough seasons.

Like then Nebbie's loss to Georgia State was the last straw. Unlike then Nebbie is doing this at the start of a season, not the end where the AD had to scramble to find candidates and eventually a coach.

Who knows what's going to happen with this season for them but going forward should not be a rebuild. We'll be in Lincoln to hopefully bring home the W. Heard unsolicited from the Husker fan in the family and he is very pleased. He has been willing to give Coach Frost time but Saturday night was just it for him. Obviously the same for the big boosters too.

It certainly feels like a "straw that broke the camels back" firing.

Having said that at least Mason ... did some stuff / wasn't a "OMG FIRE HIM THIS TEAM IS EMBARRASSING ALREADY" type firing.

Jim Leonhard wants to be Wisconsin's next head coach. That guy isn't leaving, he doesn't need a big pay day. If Wiscomsin keeps losing this will happen as soon as next year.
Things like this I think apply to a lot of the candidates being thrown around.

Campbell and Klieman ... if they can be very competitive in, if not win, the Big XII at Iowa State and K-State, why would you want to go to Nebraska and that rebuilding job?? They can be more choosy and wait to see if a major opportunity arises, while having a good situation currently.

Maybe this is finally Craig Bohl's chance!! :cool:

But on a serious note, if Neb does take someone from the Big XII North, wonder if that school would backfill with Bohl.

ESPN reporting Frost getting all $15M
Alberts:

“There’s no negotiated settlement. The University of Nebraska has a long history of living up to what we agreed to. So the contract is what the contract is. And the university will comply.”

Also Alberts:

“Mickey’s an energetic guy. He’s pretty black and white.

:oops:

“We'll stop talking about championships or stop talking about things we used to do," he (Alberts) said. "We'll just get really process oriented, detail oriented and ultimately, when you start doing those fundamental championship habit-type things, those types of wins follow.”

Their AD said they’ll stop talking about championships and in the same breath brought up championships…incredible.
