  1. From purely a fanbase and support perspective, I've always thought the NU football program was most like an SEC program - "it just means more". Ohio St has the only other B1G football program I'd firmly state the same about. Penn St might have an argument, and maybe UW is changing toward that direction with the Fickle hire. I'd put no other B1G football program in that category, including Michigan and the California new-comers.
  2. I'm not willing to the research , yet I wonder the breakdown of what parts of the country those recruits resided. I suspect that snagging recruits from outside conference footprint is a lot less dramatic than those numbers indicate.
  3. Youre correct that they would still need governance. However, NCAA rules have to account for all sports at all levels. I could see the top football/basketball conferences establishing their own governance outside the NCAA. The other sports could still reside under the NCAA umbrella.
  4. Thought maybe this thread was going to be about an article suggesting less scholarships so the top talent is more spread out.
  5. I don't know that I would use the Fiesta Bowl to support the 3-3-5. While TCU has made some plays Michigan has 38 points on em with almost a whole quarter left.
  6. I'm happy to sign up for the tutorial.
  7. I wasn't specifically referring to Green. Were you? I haven't heard much negative about Green's tenure in respect to the football program or sports as a whole.
  8. Likely not the only thing he's judged on, but if you're having an impact on the program, especially a negative one...
  9. Okay. Maybe "expectation" was the wrong word choice. Maybe "excitement" or "hopes" would've been better terms. But I'll own it, and throw it back... We've read about and seen Rhule's program development (Temple and Baylor) , and based on the players he's so far landed in a month on the job, why would you not have an expectation that he can resurrect this program in short order? short order = before season 4 resurrection = 9+ wins
  10. If he can develop like we've all read about and continue to recruit at this level+, I don't think its too far-fetched to believe he can put a top 12 team out there by year 3.
  11. This was me 40 years ago. While I was glad Alberts hired Rhule, I didn't have the same level of excitement like when Frost was hired. However, after reading and listening to the sound bites, and now seeing how his recruiting class panned out (plus the transfers), I'm probably more convinced than I should be at this point that we are going to see a legit resurrection of this program. I just need to keep my expectations in check for next season; would not be surprised if this is a playoff team in year 3 (maybe 2?).
  12. Geez I hate twitter. LOL What is that supposed to mean? Is he sitting on the toilet thinking? Is he thinking of a brunette instead of blonde? Express what you mean, and mean what you express. /rant
  13. "No s#!t" doesnt quite grasp how little I gleaned from this post. LOL
  14. "Doesn't matter" is hyperbole, yet it will dramatically reduce any drama for most early and midseason games, and only add back some of that drama in some additional later season games. The conversation changes from "Holy s#!t! Alabama is going to miss the playoff" after losing to Tennessee, to "Eh. I guess Alabama wont get a first round bye".
  15. Best not. We saw how well that worked with Rich Rod.
  16. Would think the NIL initiatives would kick in to high gear if there's want to keep of some of these players. Supposedly, NU boosters have one of the best initiatives in the country.
  17. Despite Whipple's inclinations, I think they'd have run the football more if they could have been successful doing it. Most games, there wasn't a point. And the times they were dogma about running, 4th quarter leads, it was generally the wrong decision based on expected result.
  18. I believe it. Heck, there was speculation that Rhule was a top choice for Huskers before he was even fired.
  19. Which all means that he'll be bought out of his contract if not retained (or contract revised).
  20. And it would also be up to Mickey to be a professional and lead instead of divide. Mickey seems like a pro.
