- This really came out of nowhere. If any coach from Oregon was going to get the Nebraska job, I thought it would be Scott Frost. I wonder how Riley even got on Nebraska’s radar. Did he approach them? And why Nebraska, after having chances to coach USC and others in the past?
- As much criticism as Riley drew this season, it’s important to remember all the good he did for OSU. He really laid the foundation for the “turnaround” and during his second stint, brought stability for the program. And he did all of this the right way and with class. For that, Beaver Nation should always be thankful and grateful.
- I really hope Riley can get to a big bowl with Nebraska and get that signature win he deserves so much. He’s not getting any younger, and must know his window of opportunity is closing, so going to a program with more resources gives him a chance to do something in a hurry. I wish he could’ve done it at OSU, but I hope Riley wins that “big one” and caps off a great career.
More on this shocking development later 🙂 And Go Beavs!
