-Are you seeing enough progress from Scott Frost’s team in his third year as head coach?

-Nebraska looked more prepared to play this week, but they weren’t last week…how does that happen?

-What do you need to see the next 2 weeks to believe the guys are still believing in the process?

Do you still trust Scott Frost to get things figured out at Nebraska?

-Frost is 10-19 as Nebraska’s head coach. He’s lost 3 straight to Iowa, but at least has kept the game within 6 points each time, unlike what Mike Riley’s final 2 games against Iowa looked like

-Nebraska’s defense responded well after a bad showing against Illinois. They gave up points, but can’t really blame them for the loss. Special teams and poor offensive series is more to blame. So, Chinander gets a pass this week again. But when does this turn around? Patience required. Then…you look at quick turnaround at Rutgers with Greg Schiano in year 1…why is that happening, then?

Northwestern’s embarrassing loss to Michigan State just made the B1G situation even more of a mess

-Northwestern forgot they were good and lost 29-20 to Michigan State, while Ohio State is one more canceled game away from not being able to play in the conference title game, and Wisconsin is already ineligible. What a disaster for the conference

In some positive news, Nebrasketball looked pretty solid in their first 3 games of the year

-Yes, there was an unfortunate loss to Nevada on Thanksgiving (a game they probably should have won), but they looked convincing in wins over McNeese State and North Dakota State

-What do Sip and Jake think about the team’s chances going forward after their first 3 games?

Nebraska falls to Iowa, 26-20, for a sixth straight time, and falls to 1-4 on the season

-It wasn’t a blowout. But that’s not the discussion we want to have. Another bizarre offensive gameplan with a Russian roulette at QB between Adrian Martinez and Luke McCaffrey, which had flashes, but again couldn’t overcome too many mistakes to win

-If there was ever anything to define the season and the Frost era so far, it’s 2 plays that happened in the fourth quarter: a terrible muffed punt by Cam Taylor-Britt, and a huge Martinez run wiped out by a hold late in the fourth quarter. Shooting yourselves in the foot with avoidable issues

-Thoughts on Frost’s postgame comments about the game and team…
