We all wanted him to be a savior. So much hope, so much promise and it was just an epic mismatch. We have to track upwards.
the problem has been when the offense was good, the defense was bad, and when the offense was bad, the defense was good. thats the problem. no complimentry football, just lots of inconsistent play and thats before you factor in special teams.I didn't expect this at all, even if they lost yesterday. I thought the buy-out agreement would force a delay. I read that wrong, so I'll acknowledge my error there.
I have to think Alberts is doing this to try and give the players playing THIS season a chance to hit the reset and try to salvage their year. The irony is that the offense, despite being full of new players, new coaches, etc, was performing pretty well. They have been scoring at a good enough clip to expect to win their games.
I expect we'll see an overhaul of the defense. Is there anything that can be done on that side of the ball that will help THIS year?
You never know. Donte Williams (remember him?) had a losing record at USC taking over for Clay last year, but Lincoln Riley kept him on the staff. He was too good of a recruiter and loved by the players.I agree, but the asst coaches are under contract for 2 years. More buyout $ for them too?
FWIW, I don't foresee any drastic changes. We still have the same players and coaches, with the same issues. Too bad MJ will be saddled with a loosing record as a head coach. In addition, MJ will likely not be kept by the next HC.
Didn’t Chip leave for the NFL and then Frost called the plays for Helfrich for a couple of years? I believe Frost was calling the plays the year Oregon went to the playoff and won the semifinal game.I'm really not sure if that's his niche or not. When he was at Oregon, that was Chip Kelly's offense, not Frost's. Frost may have technically been calling the plays, but that's a bit like saying Solich was Osborne's offensive coordinator. He might have had that title, but everybody knows who really was in charge of the offense. Frost didn't have final say on offensive play calls until he went to UCF. There he did it mostly with the previous coach's players, and even the UCF team that went undefeated was undisciplined (one of the most heavily penalized teams in FBS that year.)
It'll be interesting to see what the future holds for Frost. He's definitely not going to get a P5 HC job any time soon, but I wonder if he'll look to stay at the P5 level as an "analyst" for somebody like Chip Kelly at UCLA or maybe even Saban in 2023. Or if he decides to take a HC job at a FCS or G5 s
P5 OC maybe?
That sure seemed to be his niche.
To quote Don Henley:In my 68 years on this planet there was never a better reason to give a stiff middle finger to the state I was born in and tell them good riddance. This is Harvey Perlman's doing after firing two 9-3 coaches. Nebraskans are a proud, but not very smart bunch. You have fired your way into oblivion and don't even know why.
