Except Payton did it with a 13-3 team.  Frost did it coming off back to back 3 win seasons and an abysmal record in one score games.  Even if it worked I feel like it would have been needlessly risky.  Dude is flailing
My guess is Frost may not even survive the season. The Wolves are circling.

Nebraska got paid by joining the Big Ten but lost its last chance at being Nebraska again.  They should achieve to be Iowa or Wisconsin.  Their days as a blue blood are over

They fell off even before the B10.  They've not finished in the top 10 in 20+ years.  And its just not a sexy brand.

True but I compare them to Oklahoma.  OU wandered the wilderness post-Switzer until Stoops got there.  Nebraska at least was in the Big XII title game before leaving. 

I think cultural fit matters for these schools and it’s why Maryland and Syracuse have lost their basketball identity

Oklahoma feasts on Texas recruiting wise.  Nebraska could never really do that.

I think they had a better chance doing that staying in the Big XII than in the Big Ten but that’s just conjecture, of course.  They don’t have an identity anymore other than what was

You are probably right.  When they were at their peak, they recruited Florida tremendously.

I think it was California, too.  Either way, they need the right guy as a head coach and that’s easier said than done.  They need to quit chasing what was and figure out what they are now.

If they Big Ten West stayed as is, I’d focus on how they beat Wisconsin and Iowa but they’ll be restarting again with a new coach and a new alignment.  Just a mess

I’m not disagreeing. I wouldn’t have done it. But if it worked, he’d have been “bold, aggressive and confident.”

I don’t often root for The Ohio State University, but I’ll be pulling for them to win by at least 5 TDs this week.

@PeteThamel: Sources: The CFP Board of Managers has decided on a 12-team College Football Playoff during today's meeting.


@PeteThamel: The 12-team model is expected to start in 2026, after the current contract, according to a source. There's still a chance that it could go earlier, but those details are complicated and would take some time to work out. https://twitter.com/PeteThamel/status/1565776097274236928

I think I'd have liked 8 teams better, but either 8 or 12 is better than the current system.

Doesn't change much.  It'll still be Bama, Ohio State, Georgia, Clemson and then maybe a random school once every 5-10 years (Oregon, Auburn, Florida State, LSU, etc.).  Just adds one more blowout win for those top 4 teams.  See what they do to Notre Dame or Cincinnati when those two teams sneak into the semifinals.

Yup.  Coaching turnover will be greater, too

I think it may help coaching turnover go down a little bit. I'm thinking of Dan Mullen and Florida. In an expanded playoff, Florida likely gets the nod in 2019. If that's the case, does Mullen survive his bad season last year? I think he might have.

Coaches not making a 12-team playoff regularly will be getting sent to the moon.  It’ll be a bloodbath in the SEC
