Where is this coming from? I've now heard it from 3 different people. I scoffed at the first two. But the 3rd is a pretty reasonable voice that I speak with often. Anyone else see or hear it? I think it's ridiculous. Ppl who start sh#t like this are morons. I cant imagine there's any legs to it whatsoever.

Now here me out...

 

This would be a major blow to Nebraska.

 

BIG Reasons why it would be bad for us:

-Fallout with recruits

-Reset button on program again

-Punch to the gut that a Coach would rather be there (makes us feel less relevant than we already feel)

 

Reasons why I could see it happening:

-Lots and lots of pressure on Riley to do well here. Perhaps he feels the heat and doesn't like the possible end game scenario for him.

 

Reasons why I don't see it happening:

-Has said this is his final journey

-Seems to enjoy it in Nebraska

-Has got some really good building blocks here (recruiting chips)

-Has moved tons of people he is close to out to Nebraska to restart their lives and would feel bad making them change their lives again so soon.

Riley knows that region, with Corvallis being just down the road.

 

With the relatively lower resources available to him in Oregon State, Riley was still able to build enough of a reputation that he was contacted by both Alabama & USC about coaching vacancies before accepting the Nebraska job. He's well-regarded in coaching circles, if not by everyone across the state of Nebraska.

 

He's a good California recruiter.

 

He knows how to evaluate talent.

 

 

 

 

 

 

So... there are reasons why that popped into my head. But it's not like I think the odds of Riley actually leaving Nebraska are even 5%.

I don't think that Riley would go if they did want him, those schools don't like each other. It'd be like Nebraska hiring Barry Switzerland to replace a retiring Tom Osborne. Not a hire that would be popular with most.

They get Riley, and we get frost. How would you feel about that? I think most oregon fans would be disappointed and most nebraska fans would be happy

They wouldn't be happy for long.

Come on, a program that just canned a coach with a really good record, that is clearly showing its fans that they school demands more than just "good" is not going to go hire an older coach with a proven track record of .500 ball.

Riley wouldn't go anyway. I believe he wants to prove that he is a better coach than his record indicates. He wants to prove he can win as part of a real program. No offense to Oregon st but kinda. You can tell by the moves he is making. He wants to win here and then most likely retire. I'm all for that.

I woke up this morning wondering if Langsdorf would be in line for a HC job - this might be a good opp for him. Certainly with his loyalty and history w/Riley, he would have discussed it with him, and would give him some heads up to plan around his departure.

Which is why Langs isn't going anywhere. MR and DL have similar ideas on offensive identity. I think it's more likely he is being groomed to take over when MR retires. If the offense comes alive next year with a new field general people would be more receptive to the idea, IMO

I dont disagree that he is being groomed as a HC by Riley - and potentially as his replacement but I dont think that would stop anyone from taking a position from a uni like Oregon if it was offered. Why does his first HC gig have to be at NE in order for him to take over for Riley?

He is probably looking at 2018 schedule and knows how the fan base reacts to each and every loss and wondering how the hell he is going to go undefeated against that schedule...or how he will survive if he happens to lose games, which WILL happen that year (maybe quite a few)

Oregon wouldn't even interview Riley

Whose Oregon looking at? I know you're an Oregon fan as well, so just wondering what you've heard

 

Fleck, WMU

Taggart, USF

Harsin, Boise

 

Some other names that have floated around but no substance were Brian Kelly (Yuck), Jim McElwain (Meh), and Dan Mullen (I was intrigued....kind of, by this one)

 

Those are the two most likely guys (Fleck or Taggart). Everytime I hear Fleck it's a combo thing with Schiano coming over from Ohio State. The media guy in Oregon, Canzano, keeps pumping out Anti-Fleck stuff that isn't relevant.

Frost to Oregon would seem more realistic. Has there been any rumors of that happening?

 

Oregon beat writer for 247 says not happening - even though he thinks they should be interested.

Riley is not leaving us for Oregon. Call me crazy, but Nebraska is a better destination than Oregon. We have the money to keep him. The only instance where a coach may want to leave Nebraska is for a top-tier $EC school, but we all know that's not happening.

No. It's because Oregon would never think about hiring Riley. Not even on the radar.

With this ^^ I am in 100% agreement. I think Mike Riley wants Nebraska to be his swan song and I believe he wants to finish/go out #1/on top.

If rumor is true, replacement coach will be Scott Frost?  Craig Bohl?  Or else rehire Bill Callahan ........ ;)

 

Resurrection of Tom Osborne?  I think same age as Bill Snyder
