Per Football Scoop, Nebraska's looking pretty locked-in on getting Arkansas HC Bret Bielema to come to Lincoln.

Per sources, Nebraska is targeting Arkansas head coach Bret Bielema and is in serious talks with him. Eichorst and Bielema has an extensive relationship from their time at Wisconsin (Eichorst served as Wisconsin’s second-in-command from 2006-11) and from what we hear this got serious quick.

The full text, including Bielema's buyout clause at Arkansas, can be seen here.

Some Nebraskans, though, are still thinking Oregon OC Scott Frost is the right man for the job. We'll see how long that sentiment holds up, though, with #Bert4BigRed being a thing.

Meanwhile, Tim Beck is interviewing at Kansas:

Fun times in Lincoln. Start the private jet watch! Talk about it here, if you're so inclined.
