Just win and they can’t take it from you.

Unless I learn otherwise, it appears to me that McMurphy’s sources from his report published on Wednesday on the NCAA investigation want Scott Frost gone.

I would not be surprised if those sources were the same as the ones who leaked the stuff during Bo Pelini’s era.

My suggestion is that Frost put his head down and go win.

Putting together a successful season, however that may be, would be the perfect metaphorical middle finger to whoever wants him gone.

I am so on board for that to happen. These sources have been a rot building in the program for well over a decade.

Screw em.


Here is the fricken flakes.
