  1. Wow, massive win. I didn’t think this team would notch 5 wins this season. Happy to be wrong.
  2. “Coach, Hank from DeWitt here. What do you think about changing the tunnel walk music from Sirius? Should Nebraska switch to Nike from Adidas? You’ll never do all red uniforms, right? You hate Lil Red too, dontcha? When is the right time to play The Killigan’s song?”
  3. Fickell is my first pick too. I’d argue the ranked team stuff is appropriately emphasized. Dude is wanting top dollar, and his best win is a 2016 win against 19th ranked Navy. I also have to question him for hiring Joe Brady as his OC at Carolina. Brady had one of the thinnest resumes ever and his biggest claim to fame was a one year stint as a passing game coordinator for a team that had a record number of draft picks. Really Matt? That’s the guy you think is ready to be an NFL OC? My mother in law could have been the passing game coordinator for LSU that year and had similar results.
  4. So Jim Grobe was the interim after Briles got axed, and went 7-6. Did Baylor have any sanctions that Rhule had to deal with? Scholarship limits? Bowl bans? TV bans? As far as I can find Baylor got a slap on the wrist for ticky tack recruiting violations that didn’t take effect until after Rhule was gone. Sure it couldn’t have been easy to take on the Baylor gig at the time, but Briles, Grobe and Aranda have all had winning seasons at Baylor. Is winning there really the Herculean feat we’ve made it out to be? He hasn’t beat a ranked team since a 2016 game against Navy. I hope he‘s able to put a staff together, because if he’s the guy… I’m not seeing it.
  5. TO isn’t the Don Corleone Puppet Master that he often gets made out to be.
  6. Who knows if Trev shooting down 3 assistants at $1m each is even true. If it was in fact shot down, is it perhaps because of who the assistants were going to be? Brian Ferentz makes just under $1m/year. Doesn’t mean he’s worth it.
  7. Would love it, but I fear he’s too settled at Utah to want to uproot and start completely over. I think Kyle Whittingham, Gary Patterson, or Chris Petersen would’ve been excellent post Bo hires. The program was in a solid place and a competent hire could’ve seized the West a bit.
  8. Jon Bowling Roger and or Curtis Craig
  9. http://amp.thecomeback.com/ncaa/college-football-world-reacts-kirk-ferentz-buyout.html Article from this summer says $48m. Brian makes $900k/yr as possibly the worst OC of all time. Parker makes $595k/yr as an excellent DC. Things could get very interesting in Iowa City.
  10. Almost. I’ll have to check but I think his buyout is pretty steep. Not sure if Iowa has deep enough pockets to move on. Promoting Parker would probably be the move. But if they can’t move on from Kirk, can Parker possibly be lured away? Have to imagine he’s getting looks.
  11. It’s kinda poetic how Iowa and Wisconsin fans have been hammering Neb for years for moving on from coaches who won 9 games. Funny how things work out.
  12. Was at that game. A 3 win team with half a staff and a backup QB had them on the ropes, and their fans were acting like they won the Super Bowl. I’m with ya teach. The B1G West is not the murderer’s row they get made out to be.
  13. I’m glad someone finally said it. A lot of average to below average in the B1G West. The league has done a great job of rebranding mediocrity as “toughness.” Really a shame Neb hasn’t had their s*** together these last few years. The division has been up for grabs for years, hard not to think we left some on the table.
  14. Can anything just be normal?
