  1. Yea this is prosthesis way but I’d probably take a harder stance. I’d probably just flat out say “you aren’t academically eligible”. If he says “I will be” then I’d say “prove it”. A coach shouldn’t be responsible for motivating a player to get academically eligible. I go back to the movie “Rudy”. We need more players hungry enough to do the things to succeed here on their own. Then add in the support system.
  2. But isn’t he a contract employee? You said yourself you can walk him at any point.
  3. Unfortunately I think you are correct on the head coach being a split with the fans. No fault of MJs but a split really developed around his interim position. I wish Trev had put someone in there that was not going to be a candidate.
  4. Hey I was one of the biggest critics of SF but I fail to see where the players quit on him. I can’t honestly say MJ has them competing anymore than frost did.
  5. Don’t listen to podcasts on 247 or for that matter any other media. Keep in mind these were the same guys pumping the SF hype train the last couple of years knowing there were issues. They will pump the MJ train too because he is part of Nebraska. I have said forever use your own eyes. We were not good under SF and we are not good under MJ. Yes he was handed a mess. That is a good thing for him because the low hanging fruit. They still haven’t improved effort and technique at blocking or tackling and we have had some of our sloppiest play in the form of penalties, missed assignments and turnovers in the last part of this season. I sure hope Trev isn’t making decisions the way it seems our fans are.
  6. If you think they can get top notch coordinators and assistants why not get a top notch head coach?
  7. You will be another one b!^@hing because the media never tells you the full story. Well this is the story. He has been ruled out at Nebraska by Matt’s choice. But heck …..wait for the official announcement if you want. Just giving you heads up so you can stop speculating on him but heck do it if you want.
  8. No. His agent did. No dollar amount had been discussed.
  9. No link. As you should know by now…..links from the media are the least likely and slowest mode of gaining the truth. Not explaining my way so you can choose to believe or not. But it is true. He made direct contact with the university saying he wasn’t interested.
  10. Matt Campbell is officially out. And not in coach speak. He OFFICIALLY turned us down as a candidate.
  11. It’s making me sick to my stomach that fans would settle for Mickey. He has never been on any one’s radar as a coordinator yet alone P5 Head Coach. If he wasn’t here our fans wouldn’t have him in their top 100.
  12. Absolutely. Quite frankly I think fans are being irrational on the Mj hire. Right now he has one game and it was ugly. I’m not even sure what they think he brings in the big picture compared to experienced head coaches other than he has Nebraska ties and they like his podium statements. Been down that road too much.
  13. And yet when we hired whipple with a longer and less successful resume we had fans drooling over him.
  14. It will all be different in 3years. I doubt the 12 team playoff will ever kick off. There were 10 FBS reps and Notre dame voting on it. It’s just a matter of time before the Big 2 and some stragglers start their own division….either with the ncaa or without and cut the bottom half of the FBS out of the money.
  15. They don’t need to once they have learned it. Our guys obviously haven’t learned it.
  16. Bo was 1-3 against whisky, 2-1 against Michigan and 1-1 against Ohio State. This after having freshly moved into the B1G. Hard to understand the couldn’t compete statement.
  17. To the good or better? We are 1-1 and look bad in both.
  18. Giving it every ounce could come into question. I suspect some things will come out after he’s gone that are gonna stun the average fan.
  19. Bingo. You nailed it. The Trev haters won’t like this but there is a reason this happened. I’m not gonna say my sources tell me because that sets it up for half the posters to roll their eyes at me but here is how it went down. Trev wanted to fire SF last year. A couple of significant boosters and some people weighed in with their concerns. Those concerns were no different from many fans concerns. I.e. message being sent, native son, payout and so forth. Who initiated the middle line decision I’m not sure of in the small group but they agreed to offer Scott a chance to resign and take full payment or agree to the settlement deal of the one year with a second…..or should I say fifth chance. This included the reduced buyout. SF to his credit wanted the second chance. There wasn’t any additional requirements put on Trev regarding what SF has to do to get a sixth year so it is in Trevs hands this time around. What Trev decides is probably still going to be run through Ronnie Green but even the boosters….the two involved…..are on board with what Trev decides this year. They all feel the original 5 year commitment was then honored. have at it attacking me.
  20. I guess the difference is being right or wrong. Being called a Debbie downer when you are accurately stating the present situation is a little different than needing a tissue because your feelings are hurt because someone is stating the facts you don’t like so…..tissue up sir.
  21. I fail to see your point? Are you accusing me of being upset pre-season for constantly being referred to as a Debbie downer?
  22. It’s really pretty simple. We weren’t that good last year. Yes we kept the scoring down as our opponents had as bad of luck in the red zone as we did. (They had more missed field goals as we did). But the truth of the matter is we were ranked 42nd in total defense last. We couldn’t get off the field last year. Now add to that the loss of some super seniors and it all becomes too realistic. The fact that we focused so much on replacing most of our offensive staff when we were ranked 20th in total offense should be a little head scratcher.
