When Scott Frost was hired, many thought Year 3 was when Nebraska could get to the Big Ten Championship…what is that revised to now?

-Nobody knew just how big of a mess Nebraska was when Frost was hired—we knew it was bad, but not to the levels that Frost found out. Still, Nebraska fans have high expectations, and it didn’t seem that crazy to look at this upcoming year, Year 3, as a possible year of the breakout. We also didn’t look at the schedule that closely…

-So, if you were a Year 3 person (like Jake was), what is your revision now for when you expect Nebraska to make the leap to the top of the West? It could still be this year, possibly…

There’s an online petition going around to move Super Bowl Sunday in upcoming years to Saturday…would you sign that?

-The petition points at that it would make an event that’s already extremely popular to be more beneficial to all parties—no worries about the majority of the public having to work the next day…more productive Mondays in the office…and restaurants/bars would benefit more, too, with people staying out later after the game instead of heading right home. Would you sign that?

Rick Kaczenski (Former Nebraska/Iowa DL coach)

-FootballScoop reports that Bo Pelini is a strong candidate to go back to LSU to be their defensive coordinator…is he as good as Dave Aranda was?

-This would lead some to believe that Bo could be ready to get back into head coaching in the Division 1 ranks (after a few years) at LSU…are you surprised he hasn’t been at a D1 job since getting fired at Nebraska?

-Chiefs/49ers for the Super Bowl in just under 2 weeks…which team do you like more in that game?

FootballScoop reports Bo Pelini is a strong candidate to become LSU’s new defensive coordinator…get ready for national mockery of Nebraska

-We’ve already been bombarded with national mockery of the Joe Burrow situation, with Burrow saying that he wanted to go to Nebraska but didn’t get recruited…. and he follows all that up with the best season ever by a QB in college football history. Cool.

-Now…if Pelini gets the job, think of the story line. Burrow wasn’t good enough for Nebraska…and Pelini getting 9+ wins every year for 7 straight years wasn’t good enough, and now you’d kill to have even 7 wins as a program…oh man this could be tough
