  1. If some on the board could drop their irrational dislike for the current staff, the answer is kinda simple. The roster is talented and deep in some positions (interior defensive players, wide receivers) and thin and less talented in others (QB, DE, LB). The roster is good in some spots and not so good in others. Does that make it talented or not talented, and how the hell do you decide? According to some Nostradomi on this board roster depth and quality is the fault solely and exclusively of the current staff. I would include the intellectual giant who, in another thread, predicted the current staff will be gone next year. Pretty simple: with similarly talented rosters, a fired coach won north of .700 of his games here. Only when a coach comes in and lays an egg against a very easy schedule do we hear that the talent isn't there to continue 9+ win seasons. Of course, that's not what was said at the time of the firing last year. And it's not the case today, either. The roster isn't perfect, but it's far better than the results that were wrung out of it. Now cue: we only won last year because of a single player arguments. Talent level under Frank was dropping, anyone who is honest can see that. Same with the last staff. MK III Eyeball Detector. Frank had the #14 class in the country when he was fired, and he likely would've signed Woodhead. Exposed again. You straight up invent crap to try to make a point. http://dataomaha.com/neb100/player/60 "Danny Woodhead doesn’t dwell on not being recruited by Nebraska and why should he?" HAHAHA! An article about Danny Woodhead not getting a scholarship from Callahan doesn't expose anything I said. Solich had already recruited Woodhead to walkon, and if a bunch of blue chips didn't fall into place by signing day, he would have gotten a full ride. Solich and Nebraska had only contacted Woodhead once. They didn't even recruit him to walk-on. Bullsqueeze. Solich had already asked Woodhead to walkon at the Huskers summer camp before his senior year. And then Solich was fired in November when Woodhead's senior season was barely over. The misinformation spewed here by some is outrageous. I'm not saying he was offered or even that he definitely would have been offered. What I'm saying is, if it had gotten near signing day and a spot or two was still open (which was usually the case with Solich) Woodhead would have been a likely recipient. But Callahan completely ignored him. So he accepted the Chadron State offer. However disappointed that Nebraska contacted him once and never called back, Woodhead chose Division II Chadron State not so much as a consolation prize but as an opportunity to reunite with his older brother, Ben, a wide receiver. http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/02/sports/football/danny-woodhead-is-a-big-talent-in-a-small-package.html?_r=0 Your article is from 2012. Funny how memories and stories change after 9 years. Let's look at something closer to the actual timeline: http://www.nytimes.com/2007/08/26/sports/ncaafootball/26back.html So yes, Solich was in touch, they had several conversations, he attended camp, he was asked to walkon, ALL before he even started his senior year. Now stop the misinformation. EDIT: I think your 2012 article was specifically talking about post-Solich. After Callahan was hired, Woodhead was contacted once about walking on and that was it. You are correct. I read an article that interviewed Scott Dowling when he was HC of Northern Colorado and he did mention that they offered him as a walk-on. He did say that it did change when Callahan got hired. My apologies... Thanks, Stumpy1. Much respect. But be ready to suffer the wrath of RADAR! You said that Solich would have likely "signed" Woodhead, of course that is total crap, Frank was never going to give him a scollie and did not do much to encourage him to walk on. If he thought he could be a returner, that means he never took him seriously as a running back. Danny knew that! Danny wanted a scholarship and the only one worth taking came from Chadron. End of story. 99.35% #BOOM

  3. Time to get over it. It was two losing teams, one lost to the other. Oz lost to a loser in Iowa St., a much worse loss in husker history.Was NU down 42-16 in that loss to Iowa State. I don't think so. A top ranked team losing to a below 500 Iowa St team is a better loss than two losing teams squaring off. Really? Now that's some kind of spin.I will forgive TO for losing once to a losing team in his 25 year career at NU. Riley managed to do it twice in the same month this season. Riley's first year, TO's 15-16 or somewhere in there. Much bigger loss. Not that I care, but the bitching over losing o Purdue is not a big deal in the grand scheme of things. Stop bitching about it. It meant nothing.

Frank wanted nothing to do with DW because he thought he was to small to be a D1 player. Frank sucked a evaluating talent.
  7. Proof? In his chat with fans today, its online OWH, look it up and read it.
  8. A win would be a stepping stone into, what I expect to be huge improvement in next years team.

  10. Whatever Bo should have done, he did what he did, and it's the reality that a new coaching staff must embrace. Bo left behind a malcontented roster, too, some of which has stayed malcontented. And since Pelini's style was much more hands-on and "directive" when it came to player behavior, some of the players spun off a bit on Riley's "do the right thing" approach The bolded is an interesting quote from Sam. I thought all the players bought in and it was the coaches fault they didn't play well. There is the message, now you malcontents can go about calling him a liar.....
  11. Sam's comments from today; Sam, after Boyd Epley's remarks, would you adjust your talent argument to include "talent development". It seems that is just as big an issue as, say, recruiting. We have pretty good recruiting numbers the last few years. . . . . Well, they were good recruiting numbers at one time. The 2013 and 2014 classes have been pretty eroded with departures and bad fits. 10-11 guys, by my count, are already gone from the 2013 class. 4 guys are already gone from the 2014 class, two never showed up, two more graduate, and I expect more to leave. Bo took some character fliers in those two classes to get some talent, and he did get the talent - a lot of the guys just didn't stick around. So while the classes created some pretty good players, it wasn't great for depth. That 2014 class could end up being pretty rough, if we're honest.
  12. Yep But even worse, they threw the players under the bus in order to "cover their backsides". And even worse than that... and the part I cant even hardly think about... is they appear to have used Boyds reputation and standing... the one guy who really does have a great reputation in the program... in their attempt to "cover their backsides". I really feel bad for Boyd. If this had only been about performance testing and making those numbers public again then it wouldn't have been a problem. Virtually everyone agrees that's a good thing. But when they injected the other needless and inflammatory stuff about needing to recruit "more talented" players and the stuff about the current players needing too much developing and coaching... in order to "cover their backsides for a bad year"... that's when the public relations scheme crashed in a ball of flames. Anytime you and your ilk don't like the message, you call the messenger a liar. Its BS and its getting old. You do realize that the "messenger" said this a year ago... So... what were you saying about lying again? So he realied he was wrong, big f'ing deal. That does not make him a liar. I have no doubt the Pelini fortress was hard to see inside. Think you can find that mountain after tripping over the mole hole? Was SE wrong about anything else? yes agreed...about a recent hire... Incorrect! About a recent fireing, he waited a year to long and should have fired the D-bag after he got his whiney a$$ kicked at home by Iowa and begged to be fired. Hey! we all make mistakes.
  13. And the last shreds of winning are finally eliminated... Mediocrity was flushed with the firing of the last coach, getting rid of the dead weight he recruited is only the next step to restoring the order. Radar do you really believe that pie in the sky bulls$#t you spew? Or are you paid by someone to come on here and reel off this crap when most every sign points the opposite way!!!!! I mean seriously wtf I am right 99.35% of the time. Its been calculated!
