The long road back to relevance begins today ...
I wish we could all agree that this guy gets 4 years to get a system running, then two years to make a dent in the conference, and then 1 year to be a national contender (top 20 consistently through the season) before we see him get an extension. 7 years is long enough, get to relevance or pack it in.
I think the key to this is, Moos and Frost are on the same page. This process to relevance won’t happen overnight.. I think the length of the contract indicates belief in that..
For me, my expectation (and I wrote this here in an earlier post) is for the Huskers to at least be competitive in every game. I saw the look of a team that quit against a below average Minnesota team this year. NU can lose 5 games the next season and 3 or 4 in 2018.. But don’t get blown out, don’t quit and at least- COMPETE...
Team doesn't quit= year 1.
Team competitive in every game= year 2.
Team gets shot at Western division (not necessarily winning it) = year 3.
Team gets real shot at the division or wins division= year 4/5.
By year 6, they are credible in the big 10, or we start looking for new coach before an extension puts us deeper into the hole.
