He added: "If things don't go well, that woul...

Stryker: Find consistency, lose the drama, emphasize the run, solve special teams
Just a little over three years ago, Bill Moos hired Scott Frost as head coach at Nebraska. In that span, Frost has produced three sub-.500 teams, and appears to have aged about a decade. His lack of success on the field seems to be weighing heavily on him. The good news is that Frost can do a lot to change that situation; the question is whether he will. The redemption of the Nebraska football program is still pending; it did not emerge from the pandemic in 2020, as I thought it would. I expected the Huskers to win at least five games during their Coronavirus-shortened season. That would have ...

Husker Dan: Huskers Say Bye-Bye to 2020
Right after the final Husker schedule of 2020 was announced in September, I thought the Huskers were looking at a 4-2-2 season. FOURIt looked as if there were 4 winnable games: Purdue, Minnesota, Illinois and Northwestern. TWO AND TWOI also thought there were 2 toss-up games: Iowa and Wisconsin. (The Wisconsin game was canceled by the Badgers due to COVID issues.) And it seemed like a good bet the Huskers would lose to both Ohio State and Penn State. It looked like the Huskers might eke out a 4-win season, considering the strength of their schedule. So when the Huskers beat Penn State, that wa...
