    He may be great and I just might be a huge idiot but I don't generally like hiring dudes from 1-AA regardless of who they are or where they came from. But that's just me.

    Of the local options mentioned he’s the best in my opinion. I think he’ll have the stones to fire Frost if necessary. He made some unpopular decisions to keep a failing AD afloat in Omaha and has moved them forward quite substantially with fundraising, facilities, etc. I’d still rather have had a sitting P5 AD from a different school but this is probably a not-so-terrible consolation.

    I'm open to the idea that he'll do a good job.

    It's just more of the same type of shit that's plagued us since the 90s and that's annoying

    IMO Trev has done a pretty good job at UNO. I still don’t think this is a slam dunk hire or anything, but I also wonder how much interest we had. This place has been a black hole for 20 years. Why would you sign up to hitch your wagon to Frost? Either the new AD has to fire him and is hated by fans or he gets fired with him.

    That said, I’d guess a few top guys passed on Nebraska, so if you’re going to hire the Plan B or Plan C, I guess might as well make it a Nebraska guy fans will at least “support” over a similar hire like some random AD from Oral Robert’s or whatever.

    At the end of the day it’s on Frost to figure it out and if/when he doesn’t they’re all begging canned anyways.

    Guys, the AD at Iowa fucking State turned us down. This isn’t a highly thought after job at the moment and it’s 100% due to football.

    100% I posted it above, I posted it the day Moos “retired”. No one is going to risk their career by tying it to Frost based on his first 3 years at Nebraska. We could win a natty in baseball, sweet 16 in basketball, but firing Frost would get the AD in hot water with these clowns of a fanbase.

    I thought that for a while, but some of the shit I’m hearing this off-season is beginning to make me think that’s a little different.

    Frost gets fired and 100% you are going to get ‘leaks’ about other shit.

    Grading the hire on the idiotic back to the 90's, Nebraska way, Nebraska guy, walk-ons, and work ethic curve, it's an A+ hire and best we could hope for. It's about a C on the grand scale of college football.

    Say what you want, but the guy has stones and has undeniably made UNO better athletically. And all the rasslin fans hate him. I'll take it.

    I loved him so much as a player. Frick that 18-16 loss to FSU was a heartbreaker.

    Anyway, I guess he did well at Omaha, and I had absolutely NO expectations of a needle-moving hire. So I guess I'll just say I hope he does well and is ready for the intense heat that Ron from Dorchester and Irene from Gering put on people in such positions.

    Wandale has All-American talent, but are we to expect he's going to suddenly be utilized in masterful, devastating fashion playing for fucking Kentucky? They ranked 50 spots behind us Nationally in total offense last year.

    I would love to see the kid tear up college football. Too bad he doesn't know how to pick a team to save his life.

    If he can be like Lynn Bowden, I’d say it’s a good move and For a Kentucky team that can win 10 games this year.

    he was one of the most dynamic kids I’ve seen play in Kentucky HS.

    interesting insights on him here. Thx all.

    Trev is probably a pretty good AD, but UNL tends to kill careers. Not too mad about the hire and the fact that the wrestling meatheads are so up in arms make it even better.

    Wandale is exactly the guy you want if you have a good #1 wr and a couple of good backs. Using him where you can create opportunities where he isn’t the focus of the defense and you got a stud.

    Nebraska absolutely didn’t have either of those things and throwing a guy his size as a primary runner is going to be a bad time.

    Wandale is a great player, one I wish Nebraska still had, he just can’t be the focal point for an offense (or a defense) to key in on because he just is too small.

    Having said all that, I wish him nothing but the best, he seemed like a great kid and absolutely wasn’t the issue the last 2 years.

    I disagree. I think he can easily be the focal point. We just have a coach who has no playcalling creativity and a mediocre QB who was unable to throw him accurate passes. If you get him one of those then he could easily be all-conference.
     
  40. OZ2

    OZ2 Well-Known Member

    I for sure think he can be all-conference, I’m skeptical he can be the focal point though. I guess we will see.

    100% isn’t a shot at Wandale either. Just think we fucked the situation up more than anything.

    Agree, I was going to say, if Nebraska had any depth at RB and a QB who could complete a simple pass he easily could have been a #1 WR and been used more like Moore at Purdue instead of having to be an I-Back. Plus the WOAT playcalling all of his career.

    Last year vs Purdue, Mills was actually healthy and the playcalling wasn’t terrible. He had 9 catches for 114 yards and only had to carry the ball twice because Martinez and Mills combined for 29 carries.

    Jordan Burroughs was on the committee during search and the idea of him signing off on Trev and that becoming public knowledge might make Bobfather explode and I’m all here for 1 less Nazi in the world.

    I agree that putting him at RB was completely misusing him, but that’s on the coaching staff.
