  1. The most important rule in coaching is that you either teach something, or allow it.
  2. 2017 Season

    If you hate yourself...
  3. Hello, Mike Riley

    Well said.
  4. Hello, Mike Riley

    I think we can all stand to step back and calm down. Riley's tenure is likely coming to an end, and there's no reason to denigrate him on the way out.

    I don't know if it's that far, but I do question our ROI on some of these guys.
  6. Hello, Mike Riley

    Hey @unlfan... That's enough.

    We can debate semantics, but the truth is that team wasn't nearly as bad as it is now or in 2007.

    Eh, yes and no. Callahan and Riley had those calls early because they had disastrous first seasons, and had huge regressions compared to their predecessor. Bo's detractors really started around 2011-ish, and the 2012 B1G championship game when we got pantsed. The key is the first 3 years. If whoever takes over has success in that timeframe, that's a very, very good indicator.

    The difference is that Nebraska wasn't "broken" when Riley was brought it. The talk out of the AD was that he was brought in to tweak things, and that we had the talent to win. Then 2015 happened, and "toxic" became a buzzword, and the rebuilding talk started. Maybe the kids just didn't buy in because what they were being taught sucked? I can't say that anything in the program has really improved other than appearances. Recruiting isn't substantially better (interest means nothing if you don't land them), and our players don't seem to be getting better, or are just flat out not playing well (Hello Lamar Jackson). Now, whoever takes over is getting a soft team with a daunting 2018 schedule, so they're getting a mulligan out of the gate, which should help things.

    I mean, the reality is that the 2017 team is pretty dang bad, so maybe blowing it up ain't so bad.

    Regardless of the NU ties, somebody is gonna take a run at Frost. He's 2017's "Tom Herman" hire.

    O'Leary had culture issues there, and he had checked out. They also had lost alot of their best guys, and it snowballed so much that he ended up resigning.

    Eh, I don't really agree with that. Bo's resume was coordinating good defenses with great or even elite talent. Frost took an 0-12 team that recruits in the 60-70 range, and got them to a bowl in year 1, and now is ranked and murdering teams in year 2. They lead the country in margin of victory. Let's put it this way. UCF beat Maryland, a Power 5 team, by 4 touchdowns. Nebraska hasn't beaten a single Power 5 opponent by that kind of margin in 3 years (45-14 vs Illinois in September of 2015).

    Les Miles is a terrible choice.
