    As the contract isn't final, and the official announcement hasn't come from NU, I would expect Rhule to be pretty vague on where he will coach next.


    I expect an official announcement between now and when Rhule goes on the air and then he can talk openly about it.

    Rumor has it, there will be a press conference Sunday at 3:00.  If what I'm hearing is true, I would venture to guess that this has been a done deal for a while.  If what I'm hearing is true, it will become clear as to why they've waited this long for an announcement.  


    If what you're hearing is that they've been putting the finishing touches on the Rhule contract, then what you're hearing is probably true.

    Did Deion's agent give the interns the weekend off? Zero votes is surprising considering how much the new accounts were chattering about him a month ago.


    Hahaha I got one in for you. Just to keep things consistent.


    BTW I can assure you, it's been a very unpaid internship.

    https://youtu.be/pgfu9YWioXc Matt Rhule interview from 2 days ago. Don't know if anyone has posted it. I watched it and to me it sounds like he wants to stay coaching in the NFL.  But you can judge it for yourself.


    I don't see it, but you're not the first one who's mentioned that. It was also the NFL Network so talk likely to be more NFL-centric.

    Even if it is Rhule or Urban, although they realistically could announce anytime, they won’t. Trev will respect MJ enough to wait until after the Iowa game…. So the timing theory means nothing…. It could still be either of those guys.

    I don’t know, we’re talking about the feelings of Mickey plus a handful of guys. If this is big boy football, not sure I’d sacrifice the upside of an early announcement for the entire program to protect the feels of a few guys.

    Rhule is confirmed.


    I had a dream last night. I was talking to TO outside Trev’s office. Just as his secretary let us in Rhule showed up and Trev said we’d have to wait till later because he had a contract to finalize. I asked Rhule if he was the next coach and he said yes. I said I want to hug you and he looked at me like “who’s this weirdo” and walked in and closed the door in my face :lol: 

    Actual dream…..I may have been on the board too long last night.

    I had a dream earlier this week that I talked Trev into shelling out for Urban, so if we're taking dreams seriously... :horns2


    I was sitting at a bar at a steakhouse Friday night and (admittedly after a couple/few martinis) looked across the bar and swore I saw Urban Meyer. Said to my wife, "Holy s#!t that's Urban Meyer." She looks at him then looks at me and says, "The waiter?" which is when I noticed he was dressed like the waiters.


    I think we all may need to step away from the coaching search for a little while.

    These folks claiming to "know" who the candidates are WITHOUT posting sources are full of it and frankly getting annoying as hell. Either post your sources or shhhhh :dunno:lame:bs::facepalm:


    I'm still holding out hope for the guy who's being overnighted the polaroid of rhule.

    He didn't say the SIL's husband saw him. It could be the wife just said Trev was talking to some middle aged dude named Matt. The husband could have shown her a picture of Rhule and the wife must have said yeah..this guy.


    Then the husband could have 'mansplained' who Matt was. 


    I have a lot of free time today lol. 


    Hahaha yeah...now we have Trev, not only holding a secret meeting while a stadium tour is going on and he and Rhule and others happen to walk out of a room while it's happening then quickly scurry back into the room once they realize they've been seen, but also Trev now calling Matt by name in front of the tour somewhere in the process?


    Door opens: "Hey, Matt, what size smock do you wea....oh s#!t...we've been spotted by a birthday party...abort...abort....retreat."


    Seems legit.

    I posted the other day that my sister in law physically saw Rhule in the facility on Monday.  Her husband had to mansplain who he was.  I assumed they were delaying the announcement because of the UVA shooting but I was wrong on that.  I heard that he left with a contract for his attorneys to review.  There wasn't a yes or no at the meeting on Monday.

    So if her husband had to mansplain who it was, then he saw him too? And if so, why not just say my brother in law saw him? Sorry but your story has a lot of holes in it.

    He has won everywhere he has been beside the NFL which doesn’t mean s#!t to me.  He has had 1 losing season and 1 .500 season in all the years he has been HC in college.  The guy is a great recruiter and honestly puts Frost to shame when it comes to offense.  It also doesn’t hurt that he is a graduate of the Saban School of Coaching.  That itself is big in a lot of coaching circles. 


    Can someone please explain to me why this means diddly squat? Saban has had like 2.5 guys under him go on to be successful. Most have amounted to jack. I look through his "coaching tree" and haven't even heard of most of them...

    Sounds like Monken is that flavor of the day... Please for the love of god let's just get this search over with already.


    Really, I thought Rhule was still signed, sealed and delivered. Did I miss something?


    I kind of quit keeping up after Deion sheepishly told his team he didn't talk to anyone from Nebraska.

    It means a coach has been hired and shut down recruiting until he gets in there. 


    Could be. Wonder who was scheduled to visit? Seems odd the new guy would take one look at the list and say, "nah I don't want any of these spares...tell them all not to waste their time coming here for a visit"
