Is it possible Moos gives Riley another year?

    Lot of speculation by a lot of writers and other people that Riley is gone at the end of the season. Trouble is none of those writers or bloggers have a rock solid reputation of being right all the time. I am not saying I want MR to be retained but I am saying it is a possibility.

    If you remember Moos said when he got here the other places he was at were in much worse shape when he got there than Nebraska is now. If you look closely at his history you will see that he gave the WSU coach one more year before he hired Leach. Even thou he said WSU was in much worse shape than us. He has also said he wants to be given five years before he is judged.

    I think we need to consider the possibility that he tells Riley to hire some new coordinators and he will give him a couple of years to turn things around. I would rather see us go get Frost now while the getting is good but I do realize it is not necessarily a done deal.

    It is certainly possible...I suppose.

    It is also possible Lincoln appears on the World News shortly after that announcement............

    That is now why he was hired.

    It certainly is a possibility... another possibility that could be nearly as "troubling" to some would be Moos hiring a new coach other than Frost.

    I've learned that the only things that are certain in life are "change" and the uncertainty that goes along with it.

    Might be difficult when you’ve already offered the job to someone else...pure speculation of course, wink, wink

    I thought that might be more of a possibility if Riley went 6-6 and Frost said no and we didn't like our other candidates. At a probably 4-8, though, I just don't see that.

    now THIS.. I can see being semi-plausible. I think we've obviously honed in on Frost as our #1. But what if, God forbid, he were to turn it down? If you're Moos, you can't really publicly come out and say that so we would have to move on to someone else in that situation. I could see it getting pretty ugly around here if we whiff on Frost and don't get a big name

    If Frost weren't doing what he's doing right now, Moos could come in and say MR wasn't set up to succeed. But then you're waiting, what, another two years for results? I think both of our previous coaches would have been more successful with a guy like Moos at the helm, but too little too late.

    Add Frost to the mix and I just don't see how he could do it.

    No, MR was fired by proxy in September.

    Only way I can see that happening is if ADBM can't come to terms with anyone on his list. But I think he already has.

    If Moos keeps Riley for another year, we may need to open an investigation into the ongoing sabotage of the athletic department.
