Was there some big news around this state yesterday?

So I’m here to talk about roast once again.

Just kidding.

After a few statements made this weekend by Trev Alberts and Ronnie Green, I was pretty sure that Frost was going to be staying for another year. So, I wasn’t all that surprised when the news came out yesterday.

I also realized that he wasn’t going to be able to stay and keep his whole staff with him. Something isn’t working, something needs to be changed. We also were all aware that the something that needed to be changed was the offense. The defense has been doing it’s job and putting the Huskers in a spot to win games, but the offense has not held up it’s end.

I was pretty sure that Greg Austin and Mario Verduzco would be gone, but I wasn’t sure if they’d also be getting rid of Lubick and Held.

I am now so curious how the last two games will play out. What changes might we see in the attitudes of some of the offensive players, good or bad? I am also curious who will come back. While I think the change was necessary, I don’t like the idea of the players that we may lose because of it.

I’m sure we will all see soon enough.

And I thought this was going to be another quiet bye week.
