  1. Pretty much this: I can understand if people prefer Fickell to Rhule. No issue with that. But to say either is significantly better than the other is disingenuous. And to say Rhule is a bad hire is just being willfully ignorant.

  2. Rhule: $750k MJ: 1 mill Rhule: 1.2 mill…take it or leave it. MJ: I’ll take it Rhule: Playin hard ball, huh? 1.4 MJ: ok Rhule: You shrewd bastard! 1.5, final offer!

  3. Another thing that people like to complain about. This is pretty much what happens in every coaching change. Especially when time is of the essence.

  4. I read one comment from a Wisconsin fan that said: "We've been season ticket holders for 60 years. If they hire Fickell, I'm out" Ohio St. Fans want Day fired. Fans are idiots.

  9. @Mavric Can you continue to break them out into their own threads when they become known so they are not lost in the larger assistants thread? Thanks!

  10. I think both Fickel and Rhule are great hires. But…..feel like I’m the only one on here who prefers Rhule! I think he’s more established and a better fit.

  11. NU fans wanted Mickey Joseph to be hired as the full-time head coach because the players and fans were familiar with him, but now don't want Rhule to hire coaches he is familiar with.

  15. I've seen some lazy comparisons about Rhule to Frost hell let's even use Riley. Did either of those guys bring a guy like Phil Snow to the program? How about having an assistant like Joey McGuire who's now doing a good job as HC at Texas Tech? Or a possible chance to keep a coach like Mickey Joesph on the staff? This alone tells me he's an upgrade from pervious coaches we've had. I'm excited to see what guys like Reimer & Hausman can do with this staff and what they can get out of guys like Teddy P & Cochran.

  16. Some on the RSS board are saying Rhule is restructuring MJs contracts and giving him a pay bump somewhere in the $1.5 mil range

  17. There were a small handful of candidates that most (knowledgeable) Husker fans could live with. There were a lot more that felt either too risky or too safe. Five weeks ago a lot of folks would have considered Lance Leipold a steal. A lot of folks also thought our poor recruiting dumpster fire of a program wouldn't attract any top coach, which is why we should just hand the keys to Mickey. Who knows how any of this will turn out, but Trev Albert's job is to make Nebraska football relevant again, and this hire did the job. Do yourself a favor and take a few weeks off from second-guessing. The board will still be here.

  18. If Wisconsin sees more success with Fickell than Nebraska does with Rhule, Albers can clear his office Liking a lot of the names being floated here.

  22. Who is gods creation thinks that we can "grab coordinators" from other schools that are high profile? We didn't hire a sitting coach first off, and secondly, if we couldn't hire big name as HC, who would think we could hire big name coordinators? Trev surely has told Rhule every facet and area that needs an upgrade already. Rhule knows that this job is an overhaul. This hire has some question marks, sure, but to think that no one from the Carolina Panthers is qualified to lead young men onto a football field are being rather negative, just to be negative at this point.

  23. I've heard good things about Phil Snow, BUT go get Jim Leonhard for the DC. I think he could get a few Wisconsin kids to come to Lincoln in the future. The state loves Jim Leonhard and many are p***ed he didn't the job.

  26. I am ok with the Rhule hire and have been doing my best to point out the positives…..But, these would be the 3rd assistant coaches hr brought from Carolina…. If he is just going to bring buddies, I will struggle to stay as positive. Football ptsd when a HC brings buddies. What happened to the DL coach from TaM

  27. Damn how embarrassing. Imagine hiring Matt Rhule after lengthy discussions and analysis with a professional search firm, collegiate/NFL coaches, and incredibly knowledgeable people in the industry, when you instead could've just listened to Scott Shanle and HuskerPumper01 on Huskerboard! OPE

  31. If they don’t want to Coach at Nebraska because he fired a friend then they really don’t want to coach here it’s part of the business. I guarantee if money is right they’ll be here.

  32. So take away the timing. The only thing that makes sense is that Nebraska didn’t seriously pursue Fickell. And the only reason you don’t do that is because you are after Rhule.

  33. With Fickell willing to move to Wisconsin for only 6 million, it makes me think Nebraska never approached him with 8. Trev has Rhule in his sights 2 weeks before Carolina cut him loose, I think.

  35. Doesn’t really matter. With OSU running up against Michigan every year and now Riley and USC coming to town, Nebraska and Wisconsin BOTH owe it to the conference to get their s#!t together and start fielding some legitimately competitive teams in this side of the division. Bring in Fickel imo. Our guy better be ready to go toe to toe with the best.

  39. One of the most important things you need on a cohesive coaching staff is trust. You hire guys you trust. That is why he is hiring guys to surround himself he knows and trusts. Coaches can be developed, just like players. Great HC's do both.

  40. It has begun. All of the big name coaches will be migrating to the two super conferences of the B1G and SEC given the massive pile of TV money. Thankful TO got us out of the dying Small 12.

  41. Why is this AUTOMATICALLY on Trev? You guys make me smh..so damn negative, and it is you guys who are the joke. Could it be Trev made a run at Fickell????? Could it be that Fickell wanted to be at Wiscy more than here. No one knows, but easier to just point fingers and complain. And, wasn’t Fickell the HC when we came back on OSU when they collapsed in Lincoln.
