Geesh.  What difference does last year's results make in this year's
results?  I'm sure Northwestern can attest to that.

I thought Frost looked pretty good out there (bet at least a few thou-
sand would agree also).

True, they're not there yet.  Wonder how that KSU home game against CU
will pan out though?

Yoo-hoo?  How about that great UW game?

I'm sure there are several other CU fans sticking up one digit or
another, too.  Air Force wiped out that pesky (for CU) Colorado State,
I see, too.  GIGO.

I've never understood the criticism he's received--were people expecting
him to step in and "be" Tommy Frazier?  He's athletic, cool-headed and
fearless on the option.  Frost wasn't responsible for last year's losses.
Assuming he stays healthy, I expect Frost to have one hell of a season.  He
reminds me quite a bit of Turner Gill.

Frost looked good ... but speak not heresy.  Frost is not Tommie.  Frost
is not Turner Gill.  Frost *might* be Gerry Gdowski.  This, I will permit.

Frost is shaping up to be a pretty good QB ... but let's not tempt Les
Weaufx Gods with sacrilege.

NO NO NO NO.  I don't care if Nebraska wins the MNC this year.  Scott
Frost could not carry Gerry Gdowski's jock.  Gerry is a God, period.

Amen.  But comparing Frost to the greatest NU quarterback of all time,
with apologies to Burke grad and CFL standout Vince F., is the worst
sort of sin.  I wouldn't even compare Frazier to Gerry.

Heresy?  Right, Frost is Frost.  He reminds *me* of Gill in that he
does not rattle easily and he is fearless (as in no tentativeness) on
the option.  He has not yet developed Gill's pitch accuracy and
ever-perfect timing, but he's starting to get there (too bad Nebraska
will not be able to fully develop his talents).

Piffle.  All I am saying is that I am impressed by his performance and
his leadership on the field.  I would not be at all surprised if his
senior-year numbers (fumbles lost, interceptions, rushing yards,
passing yards, passing percentage) equal or even surpass those of
Gill.

But Frost runs very, very well (so far), and keep in mind that he currently
holds the all time record at Nebraska for consecutive passes without an
interception.

What's his record for consecutive passes without a completion?

In the Central Florida game, both he and Culpepper completed almost exactly
2/3 of their passes.  In the Washington game, he completed only slightly
more than 50%, as did Tuiasosopo.  Brock Huard completed exactly 50%.
