    I don't know if it is a Moos factor or a Frost factor but I do like what is going on. I like Moos a lot as an AD. No offense to TO but he is the best AD we have had since Bill Byrne. He really is a positive people person.

    I never understood all the $Bill stuff. The athletic department really took a hit when he moved on to A&M.

    Seems a bit insulting to the bball players to credit Frost even a little for anything they've done. Maybe Moos has relaxed the tensions in the department a little, but I think 100% of the credit for the basketball seasons goes to those staffs and players.

    It is absolutely silly to credit anything happening in basketball to a frost effect.

    For the most part, I believe this is it.

    I also think that just as in sports in general, "mojo" is real.
    It can be in your favor and you can feel it, feed off of it........and it can also seem like you can't overcome it when it isn't...........
    In that regard, there is no question that the "Frost Effect" definitely has lifted overall morale of the football program as a whole.
    And I think there is no doubt it has made an impression elsewhere as well.
    To what extent is that exactly? WTHK

    I just like the feeling I have all the way around concerning Husker Athletics at this point, so......... :Cheers:

    Outside of some really unforeseen circumstance, I would bet the coaches feel fairly safe that this athletic program isn't looking to fire another coach right now! Yes we have the money, but with our conservative nature we aren't looking to spend it all!

    Ya, and the really unforeseen circumstances are “cause” to terminate a contract without fulfilling it. Ain’t gonna happen with this crew.

    It's totally ignorant to think there is zero effect.

    It's not my opinion. It is a fact. Do the rest of the teams operate in a vacuum? No? then everything they encounter has an effect on them.

    I'm not attributing anyone's success to Frost's presence.

    But it has had some effect. It's impossible for it not to have had some effect.

    Totally ignorant.

    I've made no claims about how much effect there is. But it is certainly non-zero.
