  1. Sure if BP would have won more games there is no way he would have been fired. You only get to act like an a$$ if you are winning a lot. Nick Sabin and Bill Bellichek get to act like jerks because they win a lot. Bobby Knight only lasted so long at Indiana because he was winning a lot. When he wasn't winning a lot he was more trouble than he was worth. I doubt very much TO knew how much Steve Pederson was despised in the AD office before he became the AD. My oldest brother knows 1 of the former assistant AD's that quit as soon as SP got the job, because he wouldn't work for t
  2. Well I think BP problems were more the way he dealt with everything else vs. his record on the field. BP would still be here winning 9-10 games a year if he wasn't such a d!(k. Solich and Steve Peterson never got along when they were underlings. They were not going to work well together.
  3. You need to be consistently good, before you can be great. I think it will be interesting to see if Chryst does start adding things to the offense. He does like the forward pass more than Alvarez. I don't think he will stray too far from the formula. I don't think they are getting rid of the fullback. It won't surprise me to see an uptick in their passing and more use of the shotgun. We will see.
  4. Would love to have seen Rush on there farewell tour. Saw Motley Crue on their "Farewell Tour" how ever many years back. Alice Cooper opened for them and his show was way better. As soon as things open up I am taking my son to see RHCP's. It really doesn't matter where they are at we want to go see them.
  5. I was at this game I was all of 12 at the time. It was very much a let down and probably hard to get back up to play again after the emotional drain of playing so well against OU the week before. Missouri was decent that year. I think they ended up 8-3 or 7-4. They had a three headed monster on offense. Phil Bradley at QB, James Wilder at RB, he played quite a few years in the NFL and a guy by the Name of Kellen Winslow at TE. It was basically a game of who scored last won the game.
  6. Couldn't have said it better myself. Spielman is a great complimentary receiver. When he had someone to take the heat off of him on the outside he thrived. But with that said, he is not going to be that guy that takes over a game when the other team doesn't have someone else to work off of. I am not sure Wondale Robinson is that type of guy either, but he still has a chance to prove me wrong.
  7. Read the article yesterday. You can't argue with a lot of what he says, except. No one at Nebraska, including Frost ever said they wanted to leave the conference. He is only half paraphrasing what Moos says. He leaves out other parts, which I am sure he read in Sipple's article. The article's tone is just petty and vindictive and designed to piss off a certain crowd. You are right, being a Mizzu grad he has absolutely no love for Nebraska. Loves to kick us when we are down. He has certain Schools and college towns he loves to go after. He went hard after how ba
  8. I truly don't ever recall believing in Santa. I am sure I did at sometime, but I was the youngest and my older brother would have definitely broke the news to me just to be a d!(k. We only got 1 or 2 presents from Santa at my house anyway. It was usually the big present a new bike etc. It was always kind of a wink and a nudge from my parents. Now my wife on the other hand loves Santa and wanted are kids to believe as long as possible. Her parents did the same thing as @KnappIc did. They would go to church and the presents from Santa would be there when they got
  9. This would be very hard for me to do. I will pick 10 songs that I never get tired of listening to. By that I mean I never turn it off or skip it. Everybody Wants to Rule the World- Tears for Fears Black Whole Sun-Soundgarden Ramble On- Led Zep Time- Pink Floyd Can't Find My Way Home - Blind Faith Home Sweet Home- Motley Crue Redemption Song - Bob Marley True Faith- New Order As- Stevie Wonder Soul to Squeeze- Chili Peppers I could easily put down another 10 Elderly Woman- Pearl Jam Into the Mystic - Van Mo
  10. Very much so, confidence and momentum are such a huge factor in football. They gained both winning those close early games.
  11. I like your enthusiasm. When I look at other teams I usually ask myself 1 big question. Is this team on paper going to be better than they were the year before. When I look at Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin my answer is no. Minnesota is taking some huge hits on offense and lost their best player on defense to graduation. Iowa is breaking in a new QB after having a 3 year starter and all the crap that has gone on there lately has to have an effect on the team and losing your AA defensive end. You don't just replace Johnathan Taylor or your top receiver. Though Wisconsin's def
  12. As was said already, TO had promised Frank the job. He actually stayed 1 year longer than originally planned. He was going to retire after the 96 season. There were other things involved also. 1. He thought he owed it to his wife to quit and spend time with her. 2. He had already had heart bypass surgery about 7-8 years earlier. He truly thought he was going to be in declining health. Which didn't happen as you can see he is 87 and still going pretty well. When you are a type A personality like TO was, you can't just shut it off. He basically ran for congr
  13. Al Papik is who TO wanted to be AD. You have to remember that Deveney was loved by all but when he left as AD and BB took over the Athletic department was a mess infrastructure wise and deep in dept. Deveney had neglected a lot his last few years and was moving on autopilot. Bill Byrne gets a bad rap from a lot of people as "Dollar Bill", but he made a lot of tough choices and presided over basically a high water mark for Nebraska athletics
  14. So when was Osborne asked initially to be AD? BB became AD in 1992? When TO wasn't named AD at that point the ship had sailed on him being AD any sooner than he became it
  15. It is way to early to tell. I get really tired of guys like Kirk Herbstreit throwing crap out there just to get a response from people. By June 1st we should know a lot more. That is almost 2 full months away. At this point I am optimistic. .
