I thought I’d put a stake in the ground about where I’m at regarding Scott Frost. That way we can all look back someday and laugh!


Should Frost be fired? Should his assistants? Maybe firing is too good for them. Maybe they should be burned at the stake.

Is he on a hot seat? Is it hotter than it was after the Illinois game?


Yes, it’s a video. It’s not long, so I hope you watch.

One item I’d like to emphasize for discussion:

When we look at how other coaches are doing, we pick the programs who have coaches come in and be successful within a season. A good example of that is Mel Tucker at Michigan State. He has the Spartans rolling. He’s doing a good job. Another - Greg Schiano at Rutgers. He has them moving in the right direction.

We point these out when we want to point out how much Frost has failed, while we conveniently ignore Tennessee, Florida State, Miami, and Texas - all programs who continue to fail despite hiring and firing coaches in succession.

Jon has a book out!

On August 21st, 2015, Jon unexpectedly dropped dead of a widowmaker heart attack. He was shocked five times on the way to the hospital with no response. He was shocked two more times in the ER. He was dead for over 20 minutes. A stent was placed, and he was induced into a coma. In January 2016 Jon received a second stent and in June he was diagnosed with an anoxic brain injury.

He wrote a book about death and recovery. The title, “Been Dead, Never Been To Europe” reflects the ironic nature of life, what happens versus what we want to happen. It’s available at Amazon in Kindle and Paperback.

Consider signing up for Jon’s Postlife Crisis newsletter, which is about Jon and interests beyond Cornhuskers sports. (I know, right?)
