Regarding CJ & Snead vs predecessors.....

Great post. That is encouraging. There are some other good players that will develop given time and coaching appropriate to their individual needs.
Be patient. Remember Frost's first year at UCF. I think his record was something like 1-11??
The next year was pretty awesome. So was the following year.
His move to Nebraska is a tougher challenge. They had coaches after their legendary Tom Osborne, who could not develop or retain the culture needed to win. Sound familiar? Failing coaches make the job tougher for a succeeding head coach because of the bad habits they instilled in their players. Nebraska is known for having fans who really know the game of football. I heard that said many times when I lived in the Kansas City area, as Kansas U folks lamented that they could never get what Nebraska had. They just don't know football like the Huskers.
Some of the posters on BY don't seem to know football all that well, either. It takes time to restore a culture and pride we once had because we have to change what's there, now. It takes more than recruiting good players. We know from our own experience, we have done more with 3 star players than many programs do with higher rated players. It takes time to get past the notion that mediocrity is ok. But it takes more encouraging and supportive attitudes from the fans to restore the culture of high expectations. Constant doubt is poison to the development of people, culture and attitudes.
Find something positive to say if you really want to support this turnaround. Money helps. But if you can't contribute more in dollars, contribute to a positive expectation of culture development.
Have a wonderful Christmas, Hannukah or however you celebrate the season. Santa is on his way to the Fick!
