We have to discuss Nebraska soccer
First, let’s get one thing straight- Scott Frost was the proper transfer. We don’t want any revisionist historical past right here. He was a superb offensive coordinator at Oregon, turned UCF right into a nationwide model nearly in a single day, and the final time Nebraska was really related, they’d Scott Frost at quarterback.
On paper, this was a match made in heaven, and no quantity of revisionist historical past can say anybody might have anticipated he’d go 5-22 in one-score video games.
With the quantity of assist and assets afforded to Nebraska soccer, sufficient to do proper by Frost and pay him his full buyout as an alternative of ready three weeks for it to be reduce in half, there must be no excuse for Nebraska to overlook on a 3rd consecutive rent.
And listed below are a number of the names I believe it is best to take note of:
First- Washington’s Kalen DeBoer.
I do know Huskies followers assume I’m being a shit-stirrer, however take it from a person that watched Willie Taggart and Mario Cristobal go away not very lengthy after they received to town- if the cash is correct, and Mel Tucker can let you know that Massive Ten cash is correct, there’s nothing the Huskies are going to have the ability to do. DeBoer had success as a Massive Ten offensive coordinator at Indiana, he’s proven he could be a profitable head coach whereas at Fresno State, and he has Washington wanting related once more.
Second- Carolina Panthers Coach Matt Rhule
Matt Rhule is getting the Nick Saban remedy proper now from the nationwide media, and whereas I don’t assume he deserves it, the media is stating that Saban had profitable runs with a number of faculties earlier than a median run within the NFL with the Miami Dolphins as a option to evaluate Matt Rhule making Tempe related and resurrecting Baylor. It doesn’t matter that he stinks in Carolina- a lot of the gripes about him are that he’s operating a professional franchise prefer it’s a university staff anyway. The issue for Nebraska is that they gained’t be the one faculty attempting to land Matt Rhule.
Third- Iowa State’s Matt Campbell
Matt Campbell has been linked to so many roles within the final three years that persons are beginning to marvel if one thing’s incorrect with him- like a Mel Kiper high 10 choose slipping into the second spherical of the NFL draft. Nebraska may be an excellent match for Campbell though- he recruits the identical areas, has proven he can develop three star recruits into NFL prospects, and his gamers love him.
Final up, a reputation I haven’t hear anybody point out, BYU’s Kilani Sitake
I’m satisfied that so long as the Cougars get an opportunity to carry onto Offensive Coordinator Aaron Roderick, they’ll be nice. And it may be onerous to lure a former BYU participant away from a faculty that simply inked a take care of the Massive 12, and somebody that’s 28-6 of their final 34 video games, together with wins over six ranked opponents within the final 4 seasons. And in case you’re a Nebraska fan considering to your self “solely six?” Let me remind you that Scott Frost had none.
And the one factor about Sitake is, he truly discovered how you can win one rating video games. After a tough begin, going 5-11 in a single rating video games in his first 3 years at BYU, Sitake has gone 9-6 in these video games since 2019, together with final week’s double extra time win over top-10 Baylor.
BYU was a program carried by nostalgia that has truly constructed a profitable fashionable brand- isn’t that what Nebraska is trying to do?
Look, it’s been endlessly since Nebraska confirmed it was even aggressive, a lot much less related. However the fan assist is there, the cash is there, and the staff has loads of untapped potential on its present roster. They simply want a coach that may combine the substances accurately and cook dinner up one thing that doesn’t style like 3-9.
Let that sink in
