So begins the 15 th season of Coaches Hot Seat covering the Great Game of College Football here in the 2021 season and as has been the custom since we cranked this thing up in 2007 we ask the Late Great Johnny Cash to come out and give these Hot Seat Coaches Hell!
In 2021 we are going to do shorter blog posts on individual Head Coaches and their current situation either after the past weekend’s game or just before the coming week’s games and with that in mind we start the 2021 season with what was nothing short of a Complete and Total Disaster for Nebraska Football this past Saturday against Illinois and for one Scott Frost….
#1 Hot Seat – Scott Frost – Nebraska
Since Scott Frost began his college career at Stanford in 1993 – 1994 before transferring to play for Nebraska in his home state this is very personal for us, and we don’t want to see Frost on the Hot Seat but what in the Hell are you going to do when a Nebraska Head Coach is sitting on records of…
Overall: 12 – 21
Big Ten: 9 – 18
…in his fourth season on the job in Lincoln?
The Nebraska football team we watched play against an Illinois team with a new head coach in Bret Bielema, who got his ass run out of the SEC, was little different…some here will argue worse…than the Nebraska football program that Frost took over in 2018 which went 4 – 8 in Mike Riley’s last and third year on the job in Lincoln in 2017.
Most shocking of all the numbers we have looked at in Scott Frost’s time at Nebraska is his Win/Loss Record against teams with .500+ record which is now at…wait for it…
3 – 17
The above means that 75% of Scott Frost’s wins have come from teams with sub .500 records!
Now at 0 – 1 with these games left to play in 2021….
At Michigan State
….we will give Nebraska and Frost the next 2 wins and then a loss at OU which will see the Huskers travel to East Lansing on September 25 with a record of….
2 – 2
Nebraska has Equal or Better Talent on their Roster than…
…so by all rights the Huskers should have a good chance of getting to 6 wins in 2021 which in our opinion is the MINIMUM number of wins that Scott Frost needs to return to coach Nebraska in 2022.
And with that we are off and running for the 2021 College Football Season and we encourage everyone to Get Vaccinated and Be Safe Out There and no doubt we will see a number of you a College Football Games this Fall because we will have half-dozen or so Coaches Hot Seat folks attending 2 to 4 CFB Games each week and we cannot wait to get back on the road after sitting on our asses at home in 2020!
Let’s Play Football!
