Friday Flakes: Scott Frost to Iowa as Offensive Coordinator? 10 Initial Thoughts on this Eventual Reality

NCAA Football: Big Ten Media Days Robert Goddin-USA TODAY Sports

Bizarro world might be coming folks. It could be a match made in heaven.

There are rumblings on the internet and rumors (unverified rumors we have to say) that Scott Frost could be the next offensive coordinator at Iowa.

This could all be a load of crap but this is Friday Flakes so I can do what I want. So here are a some thoughts on the idea of Scott Frost at Iowa for you on this Friday morning.

First, is Frost that jaded from his Nebraska experience that he wants to join Nebraska’s currently most hated rival? I mean, he has to have a ton of options (if he wants options) to go be an offensive coordinator somewhere.

Second, or maybe he wants to learn under Kirk Ferentz on how to be a good head coach?

Third, would a Frost system jive to how Kirk Ferentz wants to run offense?

Fourth, maybe he could be the next Iowa head coach in waiting.

Fifth, it could be terrifying to think of pairing a Scott Frost offense with a Phil Parker defense.

Sixth, would love to see Tony White and Matt Rhule just beat that Frost offense down.

Seventh, would he show up on time for meetings? Kidding.

Eighth, would Adrian Martinez want to coach on that staff?

Ninth, would Iowa fans want him? I have a feeling they could be a little bit split.

Tenth, would Kirk and Frost hang out like long lost friends?

What are your thoughts on this possibility?


The 3-2-1: All of Nebraska's attention now turns to Dylan Raiola -
All of Nebraska’s attention now turns to QB Dylan Raiola after Ohio State’s Kyle McCord continues to keep his transfer portal options open.

We hit on that and more in this week’s 3-2-1 column with three things we learned, two questions and one prediction.

OT Xander Ruggeroli set to walk-on at Nebraska
The walk-on class for Nebraska just added a massive commitment. The Huskers offered 6-foot-8 and 285-pound Xander Ruggeroli, an offensive tackle from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman, last year. Ruggeroli took an unofficial visit to Nebraska this fall and has accepted an opportunity to walk-on at Nebraska. Ruggeroli is a three-star recruit according to the On3 Industry Ranking.

Quinn Clark ready to sign, then keep putting in the work before Husker arrival
Quinn Clark provided a response his future Husker coaches would no doubt appreciate.

He'd been asked for a favorite snapshot from his high school career up in Bozeman, Montana. Perhaps some highlight of himself he wants to shine the light on. He certainly has some he could choose from. Like a big touchdown his junior year that helped confirm in his head he could do this in college.

Clark settles on a better answer as far as he's concerned.

Texas EDGE rusher no longer part of Nebraska's class
Nebraska’s recruiting class is down a defender, as 2024 Frisco (Texas) EDGE Jaxon Lee told Husker247 that he is no longer a Husker commit.

Lee, who committed to Nebraska in late October, told Husker247 said he plans to attend Tulsa.

The 6-foot-2, 215-pound Lee unofficially visited Nebraska in October and then

Why the NBA suspended Draymond Green indefinitely - ESPN
As the video clip of Golden State Warriors forward Draymond Green striking Phoenix Suns center Jusuf Nurkic in the face played repeatedly on phones and televisions, it was easy to miss one of the more disappointing aspects of the incident.

Kyle Shanahan makes MVP case for Brock Purdy, Christian McCaffrey - ESPN
Coach Kyle Shanahan says he has two legitimate candidates for NFL MVP on the San Francisco 49ers.

Just don't ask him to pick one.

Shanahan agreed that Brock Purdy should be in the MVP conversation when asked Wednesday about the second-year quarterback, but also said 49ers running back Christian McCaffrey deserves consideration for the award.

Bears trading Justin Fields? GMs explain why it’s the best route and where compensation could land
After a rough three-game start to the NFL season, Justin Fields has pieced together an argument.

One that says despite some inconsistency, he is getting better as an NFL quarterback. He’s missing fewer wide open throws. He’s playing more patient in the pocket and drifting less. He’s running to compliment and balance his game, rather than falling out of structure to hunt plays. With 34 starts now under his belt for the Chicago Bears, you can draw a line between two 17-game sample sizes — which would represent two full NFL seasons — and see that his second 17 is markedly better than his first. And after his next four games to conclude the 2024 season, we will find out if the Bears are buying the argument that he’s worth passing on Caleb Williams with the No. 1 overall pick.

Ben Roethlisberger says Steelers tradition might be done, cites 'bad coaching'
Ben Roethlisberger is no stranger to criticizing his longtime team in his retirement. Following the Pittsburgh Steelers' 21-18 loss to the New England Patriots on Thursday, the two-time Super Bowl champion didn't hold back.

"Maybe the tradition of the Pittsburgh Steelers is done," he said in an episode of his podcast, "Footbahlin with Ben Roethlisberger," published Monday.
