Best and Worst: Nebraska

I'm finding it harder to write about these blowouts.

Best: Birthday Party in the Big House

Long story short - I've given up watching any of these day games when they happen. I've got two small children who apparently have friends selfishly born during football season, so I've gone to a bunch of little kid's parties over the past month or so. It's fine. Kids are great. Totally worth it. Seriously, all you people without children, totally get on the train toward Parentville, population y'all.

Scott Frost's comments from 2016 were used as motivation all week by Don Brown. A Quote from Devin Bush    "Coach Brown came in the meeting and he restated what (Scott Frost) said in a game against UCF two years ago. Like Jon said, we really took that to heart. We wanted to make a statement. When you say something make sure it's true, bitch"  ok bitch was not in the quote but it should have been.This is more proof the coaches and players read Mgoblog imo, I would like to get their input on if they prefer 2.0 or 3.0

OT? Nebraska Fullback Ben Miles to Transfer

Here's the (link). He's the son of Les Miles, and it looks like he was part of the Frost transition cost. 

Maybe a take for Michigan? The team has zero healthy scholarship fullbacks on the roster (though I think VanSumeren comes in the fall and Mason will be healthy around that time). 3 star, but #2 ranked FB in the class of 2017. 

OT: Why would Scott Frost go to Nebraska?

Scott Frost is being wooed for both the Nebraska and U Florida jobs; meanwhile, UCF donors are ponying up big  bucks for facilities at that university.

The indoor player facility that Frost is getting is something that Jimbo Fisher has been poor-mouthing about his school's need for all season long, as fans look with increasing ambivalence on his team.

It's not so widely known, but UCF is the biggest public university in the U.S., in a rapidly growing and increasingly pleasant big, cosmopolitan city, with a lot of wealthy donors intent on pushing it past FSU and UF as the state's major program and school--well-situated to do so.

Does Scott go "home" to cold, recruit-limited Nebraska, a place he is known to be ambivalent about, or build something enduring at UCF? I don't know. But the landscape of football in Florida is in flux. 

EDIT: A few posters taking it for granted that the guy would want to return to NB, but I don't think that this is a Harbaugh story. Just going to add this piece about Frost's ambivalence to his alma mater because I realized that it had influenced my thinking about him going back:

Apparently, Jim Delany and Co. didn't expect the backlash they saw after the announcement of the Friday night games.  Did it seriously never occur to him to, oh I don't know, ask the schools first?  Maybe float the idea and gage reactions prior to just blindsiding everyone and then having a bunch of schools refuse this and that?
