      Fall 2017 Fundraiser   09/22/2017

      One of the things that was lost in the board upgrade is the way we used to give users the "Donor" tag that showed up below their user info doesn't work the same way anymore.  I have a new tag set up that will go to anyone who donates going forward.   I should get a notification when you donate but it is only tied to your email, not your username.  So if I don't get your tag on right away either PM me or send an email to Admin@HuskerBoard.com.

  1. Why I like Scott Frost

    Honestly, if you would take away his name and just listed Frost's accomplishments in his playing and coaching career, I think he has a great resume for a prospective coaching hire. I think people try to check too many boxes when saying "I think they should go after this coach...". Simply put, the best coaches tend to have been hired with some risks. You just got to be willing to go for the home run hire.
  2. I'm with you 100% on this. The administrators can't keep poor coaches and AD's around based on how it will impact 1 recruiting class. I don't even know where Riley has greatly improved the recruiting, other than a couple of skill positions. Even with "better players" recruited, he's either not playing them or they aren't playing well, which again falls on the coaching staff. I would count on the next coach being able to better develop, teach, and inspire the kids to play better on Saturdays, because that's not happening right now under Riley.
  3. Barfknecht Nails it to Eichorst

    Athletic departments are providing entertainment to students and alumni, and they are about wins and losses. When athletic departments do poorly, enrollment suffers. Bounds and Green didn't want to see NU get harmed further by a disfunctional athletic department. It wasn't a reflexive decision. They have been thinking about it for months.
  4. Barfknecht Nails it to Eichorst

    The 10 associate AD's was odd. I don't care too much about how much they are paid. NU athletic department oozes $.
  5. Barfknecht Nails it to Eichorst

    I actually find Barfknecht's and Chatelain's objectivism quite refreshing. Lee doesn't cover NU, he covers the entire Big Ten, so he analyzes NU compared to the rest of the conference, which right now isn't very good. Dirk is a columnist. He is paid to write his opinions and tell stories. Their approach is pretty much the same, regardless of the coach.
  6. Atmosphere In Lincoln This Weekend

    Before the Eichorst announcement, I figured Lincoln would be kind of dead and not much enthusiasm. After today, I think people will have renewed energy and interest in the program and will be curious how the team responds.
  7. Could Riley Survive this season? (Poll)

    Agree that Riley shouldn't leave money on the table, he has a signed contract. Just a hunch that he will be more willing to leave now.
  8. Could Riley Survive this season? (Poll)

    Based on today's talk with the media, I'm going to question whether Riley has the fight and the will to continue to coach after this year. Seems really sad and despondent about Eichorst's firing. I'm thinking he's gonna retire/resign after this season.
  9. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    Big caveat that the role would be interim AD. The 1620 guys are discussing it now. They think it's an approach to get an outsiders view on the Athletic Department, while bringing in someone who is familiar with people at NU.
  10. ***Nebraska Athletic Director Search Megathread***

    I also like the use of a search firm, but sometimes I wonder how much work they actually do. I have heard that they are usually used to make initial contact to the AD/Coach/or their agent, and they also may be used as a place to do the interviews. I just take the term "using a national search firm" with a grain of salt.
  11. Listening to Severe was really good today. Like you said, he was not overly surprised at Eichorst being fired. He must have seen the writing on the wall. I think firing Eichorst sooner, rather than later allows for more time during the football season for things to play out and allow more time for the AD to be hired.
  12. My wording in my post was poor, and I am sure it was definitely a football decision when it came down to it.
  13. Could Riley Survive this season? (Poll)

    True, but keeping around a bad coach guarantees failure.
  14. Green and Bounds met on Wednesday to discuss, and informed Eichorst Thursday morning. Maybe they were busy with other things on those days, and couldn't meet until Wednesday to make the official decision. I also think that waiting until Thursday takes some pressure off this being a "football decision" and a knee-jerk reaction to the NIU loss, even though it's still a football decision.
