Frost is a Nebraska Alum. If memory serves correctly, he won or came close to winning the MNC when he was a starting QB there. You cannot blame him for wanting to go home and try to win another National Championship as a HC there. He's not making a mistake. And it's not a black hole of recruiting. He has the tools and resources to win and win it all at Nebraska. He did at UCF as well, as they have facilities and resources few G5 programs do. But you can't blame Frost for wanting to return to the scene of his greatest glory.
UCF is one of the 20 schools I mentioned in another thread that are ahead of Tulane towards being a "have" (and invited to a "Power conference") as opposed to being a "have not" which Tulane is solidly locked into right now. It will take YEARS of winning before we are considered a possibility for a P5 invite. Our location hasn't done us enough the past 20 years, it won't do it without winning regularly for quite a few years to come. We're still on the outside, looking in, and at this point NOBODY hears us knocking. We're an afterthought.
I hope UCF hires a great HC. The coach at James Madison would make them immediate contenders for breaking through to the next level (and would probably last 2 years there!)
