It was quite a Saturday for all-time Husker great Tommie Frazier.
He was honored at halftime for his forthcoming induction into the College Football Hall of Fame.
Then, on his Twitter account (@TouchdownTommie), he called for Nebraska to overhaul its defensive coaching staff.
I respect Tommie's opinion, especially considering, as he stated, "I have fought, bled, and cried over this program."
No disputing that.
I think Frazier is one of the top five greatest players to play for Big Red. He was as tough and talented and savvy as they come.
But calling for coaches' jobs should never be taken lightly, for obvious reasons, not the least of which is how many people (families) are affected.
NU making major staff changes three games into the season would be, in a word, reckless. Especially considering Bo Pelini's 51-21 overall record and the fact Nebraska won the Big Ten Legends Division just last season.
That said, Saturday's loss to UCLA was troubling in that we're seeing the same deficiencies plague Nebraska time and again, as I wrote in Sunday morning's column.
Frazier is outspoken. I like that about him. He obviously knows the game. But considering his 3-17 record as Doane's head coach (2005-06), he probably isn't the foremost expert on how to run a college football program.
