  3. Are you freakin serious!? All we heard about after Callahan was fired was how he disrespected and cast out former players, removed all of the 90s memories off the walls, destroyed Husker Power, and on and on. He was toxic to everything Nebraska and him and Pederson were doing everything in their power to remake Nebraska in their image.

  4. Allow me to peel back the layers of the onion for a moment. Generally speaking, when coaching searches have happened in the past, we've tried to keep the "candidate" discussions in one thread because there are so many rumors and options flying around that it can quickly get out of control. One thread per candidate is overkill when there are 20+ names being thrown around. We only keep 40 threads on page one of the football sub forum; that may seem like a lot, but we already have threads less than 10 days old that are now on page two. Most threads that fall to page two are never read again, so consolidation helps keep a wider range of topics "alive," so to speak. Once something falls to page two, statistically speaking, it is rarely posted in again. Obviously, the downside to this strategy is there can be a lot of competing conversations happening within one thread, but I have generally found it is still better for overall board engagement and efficiency. There aren't a lot of hard and fast rules with thread consolidation. It's entirely up to moderator discretion. But, the above mentioned strategy is generally how I personally approach these situations. I also don't really mind if people post a new thread that should probably go in an existing one because it only takes us about 10 seconds to merge them. It only becomes a problem when it's the same person doing it over and over again.

  5. So my comment was the one that sent you into a tizzy? You need to chill out. If you can’t handle a little levity maybe it’s time to move along. You joined 15 minutes ago and this is your first and only post I don’t think you’ve been coming here and reading much.

  7. Maybe, but isn't this the same crap we hear when we fire a coach? Solich had a toxic culture and had to beg Crouch to rejoin the team. Callahan had a toxic culture and tried to kill the walk-on program. Bo had a toxic culture and had the players against the fans/world. Mike had a toxic culture and fed players sprinkles on their ice cream. Frost had a toxic culture and missed meetings or was late because he was drunk. Did I miss anything? I don't know about anyone else, but I feel like Bill Murray in Groundhogs Day.

  8. Since I went to the trouble on another thread, I wanted to review what an un-exact science hiring head coaches is. This ranking is from Athlon's 2015 Head Coaching Hires Report Card. 1) Jim Harbaugh: The Scott Frost of Michigan coaching hires 2) Gary Andersen: departed or fired from three teams since 2015, now an analyst at Weber State 3) Tom Herman: departed or fired from two teams since 2015, now an analyst for the Chicago Bears 4) Chad Morris: departed or fired from three teams since 2015, now an analyst for South Florida 5) Lance Leipold: now making hay in Kansas. In 2015 he was coming from Wisconsin-Whitewater. 6) Jim McElwain: since 2015 worked his way from Florida HC to Michigan WR Coach, to HC at Central Michigan. 7) Pat Narduzzi: still at Pitt. Should we make him an offer? 8) Mike Riley. Athlon rated the hire a B+ 9) Paul Chryst: brought a 19-19 HC record to the table in 2015, ranked below Mike Riley 10) Mike Bobo: fills out our HC Top 10. Four jobs since 2015, now an analyst for Georgia.

  10. Bo Pelini ran a good program. His toxicity was towards admin and "some" fans. Callahan wasn't toxic as i remember. Just not a fit that Husker fans were excited about. Same as Riley, I believe. Not toxic, just didn't really excite the fanbase... I don't remember Solich's program as toxic, just didn't win like Osborne. Frost, apparently, ran a disorganized mess.

  11. We can be pretty good at straying off topic - especially when it is needed to distract from a POOR POST! But welcome to the board anyway. Where is @knapplc when you need him to start a thread derailing post about food. Oh, well, I'll do it: Actually I do prefer burnt ends over BBQ bologna which they sell here in Oklahoma. My favorite is from BurnCo here in Tulsa. 12 Hasty Bake Grills going under one roof. https://www.burnbbq.com/

  12. This is probably the stupidest argument of semantics I have ever seen in my life. Technically an ultrasound machine could pick up electrical activity. Literally every electronic device can pickup electrical activity but it's just noise in the signal, and most devices do a good job of shielding from that. Also, I highly doubt fetal electrical signals would have enough power to be detected even if the device was poorly shielded. Medically the heart isn't fully formed, so heartbeat seems like a bit of a misnomer. The tissue is generating electrical signals and (I assume because no one really spells it out) is pulsating. The pulsating is the "sound" (the tissue moving) that is picked up on the ultrasound, but again that's an interpretation of the signal, not the actual sound of a heartbeat. Even later on when the heart is fully formed the ultrasound doesn't actually hear a heartbeat. The sound that is generated is the interpretation of the Doppler effect (this is the reason why cars, planes, etc. change pitch as they pass by you) as the ultrasound waves hit tissue moving towards and away from the transducer.

  14. "At six weeks of gestation, those valves don't exist," she explains. "The flickering that we're seeing on the ultrasound that early in the development of the pregnancy is actually electrical activity, and the sound that you 'hear' is actually manufactured by the ultrasound machine." https://www.npr.org/sections/health-shots/2021/09/02/1033727679/fetal-heartbeat-isnt-a-medical-term-but-its-still-used-in-laws-on-abortion I'm going to go with the OBGYN doctor that actually uses the equipment in question.

  15. At this point I’d settle for a coach with a mind. They say offense wins games and defense wins championships. Considering where we’ve been lately I think we need both but I don’t believe it matters which way he gravitates if he is actually HC material and has some top notch coordinators.

  16. Equating Harbaugh with Frost might be the most simpleminded comment ever on this board. Harbaugh is 64-24 at Michigan, has gone to a bowl every year but the Covid year, finished first in the Big 10 East twice, winning the Conference outright once, made a BCS final 4, and has current team ranked no 4 in the ESPN power rankings. Frost was 16-31, never went to a bowl or had a winning season, never even finished higher than 5th in the weak Big Ten West, and left current team ranked 76th in ESPN Power rankings, right behind mighty James Madison. Harbaugh also out-recruited Frost every year and was 2 and 0 against Frost at Nebraska, including a 56-10 spanking.

  21. This is water under the bridge and we all know how Mike Riley turned out, but at the time the hiring was certainly defensible. Mr. 50% actually had a similar record to Frank Solich at Ohio, coaching at the least desirable University in the Pac 12 where he turned the program around and occasionally outcoached guys like Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh. He won a Pac 12 Coach of the Year, and in 2015 had just been voted second most underrated coach in college football by his peers. Over the years Riley had been courted by Alabama and USC. He rarely came up on candidate lists because he'd turned those jobs down to stay in his hometown Corvallis. The recruiting services thought hiring Riley was a coup. Other coaches and former NFL players sent their kids to Nebraska because of Riley. Word is Eichorst approached Brett Bielema first, so going with Mr. Nice Guy wasn't the first priority, either. If you go back and look at the coaching hires of 2015, you'll find a lot of the coaches you think we wanted no longer with their program, either. Given that there are rarely more than three or four no-brainer choices for Head Coach -- and they're already highly compensated elsewhere -- that transformational head coach is a bit of a crapshoot.

  26. Here's another: The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists also has said in a statement, “What is interpreted as a heartbeat in these bills is actually electrically-induced flickering of a portion of the fetal tissue that will become the heart as the embryo develops. Thus, ACOG does not use the term ‘heartbeat’ to describe these legislative bans on abortion because it is misleading language, out of step with the anatomical and clinical realities of that stage of pregnancy.” https://www.factcheck.org/2019/07/when-are-heartbeats-audible-during-pregnancy/

  28. Thursday - Chattahoochie Tennessee at Illinois (Illinois wins 31-0 - a shutout. Defense. Illini 3-1. Only loss to Indiana by 3) Saturday - Maryland at Michigan - 10AM Central Michigan at Penn State - 10AM Minnesota at Michigan State - 1:30PM (oh yeah!) Indiana at Cincinnati - 1:30PM (Huskers have Hoosiers next week... This week they play some Fickell) Iowa at Rutgers - 5PM (or as @GSG calls them... Buttgers ) Wisconsin at Ohio State - 530PM - Meh. Sounds nice for a minute. Buckeyes are favored by 20, so.... Miami OHIO at Northwestern - 530PM Florida Atlantic at Purdue - 530PM That's right. Only 9 games, with 8 on Saturday. Fun, for the whole family.

  29. We’re not full of ourselves. We need a coach. You don’t know what all these coaches’ career goals are until you ask. And Nebraska has a lot to offer. You seem to be going with the “glass half empty” approach here.

  31. I don't see how Fickell isn't towards the top of everybody's list. Landing Aranda probably isn't realistic but I'd want him over Fickell.

  37. According to Sean Callahan Whipple wasn't with the team the Mon/Tues of OU week due to a "personal matter". Offensive Analyst Steve Cooper did most of the game planning and developed the opening drive script w/o Whipple around.

  39. Offense. the game has switched. The rules, refeeere’s and tv want scoring. We need to score 28-35 to be in games. Just in them. spread offenses and the toughness it takes to win games favors offenses. So I want a coach who values tough azz mfers nasty on the oline who can win games by scoring. coupled w a guy who can get stops when necessary with a super aggressive, attacking defense. Come what may, bring the heat. Sick of not pressuring other teams. I want a tough a$$ coach who wins or loses by using all the new rules scoring and an aggressive mean defense

  42. Hiring someone specifically based on race is about as extreme as racism gets. You are way out of line. There are currently a whopping total of 15 black head coaches in all of the FBS football programs. View points like yours are the reason this world is so quick to scream racism at the first thing they don't agree with. It's disgusting really.
