LINCOLN - After Nebraska's 41-21 loss to UCLA, former Husker quarterback Tommie Frazier tweeted:

"After letting it sink in for about 4 hours I still struggling. It's time to get rid of the defensive play caller, the Dc, lb dl and db coaches. I hate saying this but this crap is getting old. How in the hell do you not make adjustments or put your players in the position to compete? If this is what is going to happen for the remainder of the season, count me out. I don't care if we lose a game but the way we are losing is just not what #Nebraska fans deserve. I have fought, bled, and cried over this program. I didn't do all that for the program to become what it has today. Time for change! I will comment about the offense this week on Tommie's X's and O's. Trust me you don't want to miss it. #Huskers"

Bo Pelini responded to reporters in the weekly media conference Monday when asked about Frazier's tweet:

"We have a staff, players, administration, everyone here who's busting their butts to do everything we can to win football games and do everything we can for these student-athletes. Since I came back here, I've embraced the former players. If he feels like that then so be it. We don't need him."

Frazier then tweeted at 12:27, roughly an hour after the press conference:

"I said what I said... I love the program and I love the fans. Its tough for some to hear but the program and fans deserves more."

Frazier followed up with:

"He's right, he doesn't need me. I'm not the answer but he needs someone to help define success for this program. Nebraska fans deserve more."
