-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

-Texas AD Chris Del Conte said in recent weeks that Herman was safe, and then they crushed Colorado in the bowl game, finished the year at 7-3….and Herman is fired

-Sarkisian helped Alabama advance to the national championship, but will he win in Austin?
