  1. University of Nebraska Lincoln, Founded 1869. 153 years. 1,307 Total Varsity Teams Fielded 0 Black Head Coaches In Any Sport
  2. This is a f#&%up hire. A mistake by Trev or whoever is calling the shots (7.5 mill check writer.) Nebraska is not Texas. This is not the Big 12. Rhule will ulimately get to 7 ish wins at NU, be fired, and someone will write another 7.5 mill check. It is getting ridiculous. If Mickey is not assistant head coach, and lead recruiter I am out. Way to go NU, you had a Black HC for as long as you could stand it I guess.
  3. Its his job to lose HC > Receivers Coach
  4. I was mildly shocked to learn that Mickey was the first Black head coach at NU in any sport. Now we are in a rush to replace him. I dont get it. In a big hurry to spend a wad of cash. And demote Mickey. "Keep bringing in the recruits Mickey, and here is your demotion, because you understand, we just need a certain kind of guy. " When you consider that Mickey is actually teaching the right things, this rush to replace him is stupidity on a whole different level, and NU gets what it deserves. NU needs Mickey, and the culture he is trying to build, and the recruits he can bring in, and the cash he is not asking for.
  5. Time to quit making the same old mistakes, hiring these guys and paying too much. Nebraska's best option is to stick with Mickey. He is doing the right things. He can go into living rooms and pull the recruits better than any HC here in 20 years. He actually cares. If you dont believe me, go ahead and hire another expensive random white dude and see how many 4 - Five star Omaha and SEC dudes he gets to Lincoln NE. Let me know how that goes for ya. There are 3 guys who could turn this around. Saban, Urban, and Mickey. 2 of them are going to pull the dudes because of who they are, and those 2 ain't coming. The other one gives Nebraska a fresh new face in todays world, a genuine ability to recruit, and coach the right things. But anybody will come here and take your money.
  6. If the next game does sell out, it will have to be the biggest crowd ever to watch a mid tier (NOT top tier) FCS team in history
  7. Jimbo got beat by the Fun belt and Urban got beat by a cell pic
  8. Iowa is not our rival. You only have one maybe two rivals. For example Michigan has Ohio St, Michigan St. Iowa to us right now is a project like a broke down motor. You kick its a$$, make it do what you want, then move on with life. You dont hate it. You just take care of it.
  9. Coaches are important but we need to get some horses in here on the OL and DL. It is amazing how good a coach looks when youve got 5 or 6 Shields, Suhs, Paces, Sapps hanging around. We have 2 awesome backs now, need to protect them.
  10. I'd go after Eric Bieniemy. And I would tell him to go do to everyone else what he used to do to us.
  11. New position: UNL Athletic Department Director of Inconsistency. Ensuring Inconsistency, on a consistent level. 85% of the time, it works every time.
  12. Scott Frost: The Big 10 is going to have to adjust to us." Jeff Brohm: Great, what is on the afternoon agenda then?
  13. It is definitely not fine, it is just that there are now umpteen bajillion millenials who never saw how good it used to be, and don't know the difference.
  14. 1. Too much money in it 2. Too many commercials. 3. Too many attorneys. 4. Too many replays 5. Taking tv timeouts during targeting replays to determine if a kid should be kicked out. 6. Poorest officiating ever. (dependent on replay booth officials) 7. Cant hit anyone. 8. Penalty on every punt return. 9. Full grown men who don't know what a catch is. 10. Too many rules. Why can teams call timeouts before a play srarts or just to ice a kicker? In basketball can a coach call a timeout right before a shooter releases a free throw? Why do quarterbacks get to slide? Why are there times a team can't advance a fumble? Which communist invented "targeting?" How come if a receiver crosses the plane of the goal with a freshly caught ball they have to survive contact with the ground, but a running back can cross the plane, fall down and fumble, but it still is a touchdown?
  15. godam, why does Paul Johnson keep getting brought up as if his stupid option offense was even anything close to what Nebraska used to do? It just like bringing up a damn Dodge Neon and comparing it to a Supra because they both have front bumpers. Starting to piss me off. Go watch an old Husker game and please tell me if it looks anything at all like that stupid crap Johnson was running.
  16. This still doesn't address: Clock Management Situatiomal Awareness Halftime adjustments Player engagement and communication during the game.
  17. Here is what I learned, Big Red is going to be 5-7 heading into bowl season.
  18. I expect the NU D to play tough but will also be slower on the back end, and ultimately out -schemed. I expect the NU Oline to be completely outclassed by the Sooner D line, Martinez will barely make enough explosive plays to cover his disastrous ones, while our RBs and WR will not have any advantage in speed whatsoever vs. the OU LB and DB. I expect OU to jump a lateral screen for a pick 6. OU 45 NU 17.
  19. The only way to change the targeting penalty: Show them that your remote is more powerful than the trial attorneys and insurance companies. If we turn the channel and ratings drop, the TV money goes away, and so does targeting.
  20. I think some folks who care about NU football, outside the football organization, but who have power need to conduct exit interview with Frost and ask, what impediments exist here in the athletic organization that didnt exist at Oregon or UCF. In other words, how can we disengage/eliminate unnecessary actors, beurocracies, etc here in the program so that a coach can be successful?
  21. I think it is just a positive thing that the Rust Belt is allowing the Corn Belt to have home games this year.
  22. No person in the coaching profession cares about what we "did to frank" 20 years ago. Nebraska is not relevant on the national stage. Might as well be talking about why the Salukis can't get Saban. Or why UNLV can't get Jimbo Fisher.
