In 2005, Nebraska was in the thick of the Bill Callahan era and felt nothing like the program Frost knew as a Husker quarterback in the 1990s and as someone who grew up in the state. From 2015-17, Nebraska under Mike Riley was eons from the rugged 1990s program. The gap became almost ridiculously large.
Even with Frost in charge, it's unrealistic to think the program can snap quickly into anything resembling championship form. That's become clear in the first two games this season — perhaps clearer than anyone anticipated. But if there's confusion in this conversation, it's completely understandable.
