Perfect place to put this. I agree with you and don’t understand why people think we will suck forever. Do I believe we will be Ohio St or Alabama nope but we don’t need to be. We need to overtake the west. The west isn’t that great. Why can’t we be better than Iowa and Wisconsin?
I can't speak for others, but from my perspective it's not that Nebraska "can't" be better than Iowa and Wisconsin, it's that every year that Nebraska isn't competitive with those schools just makes it harder to get where Nebraska fans want the program to go. There are likely going to be five Big Ten teams in next year's Top 25. Add in Oklahoma, ISU, A&M, Texas and Notre Dame in the Top 25, that makes getting players to Lincoln (none of whom were alive in the 1990s), much more difficult than it used to be. Lord help the Huskers if KSU gets back to winning like they did under Snyder. I originally thought Frost might be able to take advantage of contacts he developed at UCF and get some players out of Florida now that FSU is as lost in the wilderness as Nebraska, but that hasn't happened.
