What a difference a guy like Manning could make next season. As the first two games have shown, we lack options at Wide Receiver beyond Spielman and Robinson... and Robinson is more of an all-purpose back than a true Wide Receiver.

Do you think that's more of a reflection of his ability, or the consequences of having 3 DUI convictions?
In my opinion, it's more due to the three DUIs. He's shown to be good at developing talent. There's a reason NFL WRs came to train with him every off-season. Maybe it was just a Nebraska thing, but he appeared to struggle at roster management and recruiting. Sure, he could create hype and get the attention of star recruits, but he had trouble closing, bringing in sufficient numbers, and having additional options.

He only got his 3rd DUI when he got to Nebraska. He started coaching in 2000, and besides Nebraska, has never been a power 5 football coach except in Lincoln. And he's never been anywhere longer than 4 years. He is really good at making relationships with people, but not so great at all the other aspects that go along with being a good assistant coach in college. His wheelhouse is doing the "guru wideout" stuff, not having to help build a roster. Don't forget that when Frost and staff got here, WR was one of the 2 most talent and depth depleted positions on the team.

That said, someone will pick him up to be a P5 coach this offseason i'm sure of it. He does a great marketing job for himself.

Not to highjack the list;, but SSO are you going to give reflections or analysis of last week's game on the football list?
