  1. Realistic Coaching Hires with the AD

    Do let us know what bandwagon you'll be hitching your star to. We'll give you a holler when Nebraska starts winning again.

    I bet they go for Bill Moos.
  3. Ohio State Game....What Did We Learn?

    I don't think Patrick O'Brien is the answer. And I've already forgotten the question.
  4. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    I really didn't think you'd double down on this.

    If the entire Ohio State team takes a knee to protest something, and keeps it up all game, I think we honestly have a chance!

    Even looking back now I don't think I could have been less enthusiastic about a Husker season than I would have been if Bo had returned for 2015. It just felt like scorched earth at that point. Riley was unknown to me, but reading up on him I learned he had an outstanding reputation in the coaching community. Some smart people thought it was a pretty smart hire. So knowing it was Riley, I didn't suddenly think firing Bo was a mistake. I still don't miss the man. The thing that has bummed me out the most about Riley is the same thing that bummed me out about Bo: his teams seem to lack both the fire and the fundamentals on both sides of the ball. Still can't tell if the talent is/was there for either coach. Funny thing, when I look up potential new coaches on Wikipedia, most of them come with blemishes we supposedly shouldn't accept.

    In hindsight....most of Husker Nation thought Pelini was a great hire in 2008, and even in his final days Pelini probably had more Husker supporters than detractors.

    I would genuinely like an answer to this question. Why would you delete half a stadium of deliriously happy Nebraska fans in your mind? Just to support your case for a coach you thought was unjustly fired? And how do you do it with a straight face, knowing it only takes seconds to be proven dead wrong? I'm asking for Sean Spicer.

    Pelini demonstrated the same bridge burning tendencies in his first tenure at Nebraska in 2003, then again the moment he started taking heat as a head coach here, and again in the safe bosom of Jim Tressel and his hometown Youngstown State. Foresight, hindsight and middlesight — Bo Pelini is 97% responsible for the reputation that follows him everywhere.
  10. Scott Frost is the next Tom Osborne

    I think you're the guy who said Nebraska is millions of light years from contention with no warp drive, so surely you understand it will take several Earth lifetimes before anything good can happen.

    If you wanted to combine 10 years worth of Huskerboard speculation into a single impenetrable post, that would be the one.
  12. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    Can anyone else support the claim the stadium was half-full? Even on the Bo tape, they are mostly referring to a hole in one of the student sections. And why are you pretending that this was a rare moment for Bo? He has a whole career of poor words and actions, and they've followed him to Youngstown State. The fact that Bo wanted out of Nebraska by year 4 suggests it wasn't just a moment of stress, nor was it attributable to Eichorst. The dude was childish and thin-skinned. Just for the record, most fans didn't take Bo's outburst personally. When it leaked in 2013, most Husker fans were angrier at the leaker than they were Bo. I'm still confused: are Husker fans too nice, or not nice enough?
  13. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    Yeah. That game in question was a .500 Ohio State team, where Bo's Huskers had turned in a lifeless first half performance at home after a wake-up shellacking in Wisconsin the week before. The charge back then sounded a like like what you say here: Bo's team seemed mentally weak and emotionally uninterested. A smattering of fans left after the Huskers fell behind 27 - 6, but the vast majority stayed and cheered wildly as the team engineered the biggest comeback in Nebraska history. Everyone celebrated that awesome finale except Bo Pelini -- obsessed over the handful of fans who left, vindictive of the local sports reporters who had rightly questioned the team's recent performance, and announcing his intention to get the hell out state, a threat he backed up by having his agent put him up for any P5 job from 2011 on. I didn't necessarily think Pelini was mean or toxic — and I certainly didn't consider him badass — I just thought he acted like a child. It would be ridiculous for any AD to keep a coach who didn't want to be here.

    So you think Husker fans need to be more patient and less demanding of their football coaches?
  15. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    Serious question: in past AD searches, has it ever come up that Nebraska basketball has NEVER been more than a conference doormat in the long history of the program?
