Iowa State and Northwestern finish off their strong seasons with resounding triumphs over Power 5 teams…why can’t Nebraska keep up with them?

-On one hand, the success of the Cyclones and Wildcats makes you believe that if they can have that type of success, then why can’t Nebraska? We believed Scott Frost was an upper-echelon coach coming to Nebraska, but it hasn’t seemed that way so far

-Northwestern’s key to success is continuity, and look at what their 5th year senior class delivered for wins and accolades—wow. And for Iowa State? Matt Campbell’s first year was 3-9 at a program that struggled perennially. Since then? 4 bowl appearances and only one season below 8 wins (7 in 2019)…this year was certainly the growth year, though
