  1. I think pressure played a part. He was talked into coming because I think deep down he was afraid of this outcome. He knew he wasn't ready or prepared for it, but the opportunity only comes once. Then, you tie that in with his personality type. The money, fame, and responsibility magnified the worst in him. And then you hear the stories right. He never had a solid plan for how Nebraska would improve. He had a horrible staff with him who were no good or could help. I will say something else and this is my hunch. When Trev got hired, he knew he was done, and if he didn't know right away, it became obvious to him before the season started. I think he sabotaged the program to get his large buyout. He forced Trev to do it before the clause. The onside was enough to fire him. Chinander was screwing up the defense to get fired and paid. I know that seems kind of nuts, but money speaks and I think they were done. Busch's quick turnaround told me it was an easier adjustment and Chinander knew it but why would he you know? Also, those two aren't cool anymore and thats crazy because Chinander was a groomsman in his wedding. Mickey and Trev know there were and still are toxic coaches on the staff. Chinander had a b!^@h fit over Ashley Williams committing because he wasn't recruiting him. He wanted Cameron Lendhardt, and Scott ended up pulling Ashley's offer and giving Cameron the green light. This caused a wedge.
  2. ahh yeah. I guess I imagine him now as more of the swimming in lakes, drinking before practice, swinging golf clubs wasted, and crashing into things for the last three years kind of coach.
  3. He can no longer attract talent there. NIL has affected everyone and it is going to kill off programs like ISU and the likes. It's happening to Northwestern if we are keeping it relevant to us.
  4. I agree he wouldn't, but I think he makes Nebraska bowl eligible in year one. His ceiling isn't insane by any means, but I think he raises our floor significantly and would do in one year what Scott couldn't do in two.
  5. On his 1.2 million dollar a year contract as WR coach, Associate HC, Passing game/ Recruiting Coordinator position at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
  6. My tea leaves indicate that they know now, and are getting the stories ready for the weekend. In all seriousness, I am willing to bet some now know and many will be filled in for their upcoming columns. A major leak will most likely drop tomorrow on who it is.
  7. Will somebody summon the damn sock?!
  8. Because a place like Cinci can't just rinse and repeat. He could potentially find himself like Matt Campbell is now. Luke might lose value over time and would certainly lose millions if his team isn't good next year.
  9. I will never forget her. Jessica0 or some s#!t like that.
  10. For being so damn irrelevant, we got a ton of dudes paid. Nebraska controlled the coaching carousel this year, and for anyone wondering about the Wisconsin job or its position, you have your answer. It just doesn't command the same level of respect. I think tomorrow we hear the major leak that will be proven true.
  11. Based on Cameron's Instagram activity (Story), Nebraska may be back in it. He posted a picture of him during his recruiting visit to Nebraska with a GBR tag in it
  12. I give it 7-10 days where a rumor of substance will leak. That's my hunch.
  13. I think it's going to be Chris Klieman. That's my pick, and I'm sticking to it.
  14. He's bigger than Stanley and faster. I really liked Stan but separation was his biggest issue. Trey can beat anyone, and so long as he makes the right reads, and Casey can get the ball out, he can get his 100+ a game going forward. If Nebraska could do a better job of spreading defenses out formation wise, I think he would put up more games like the Purdue one.
  15. If Jameson Williams gets drafted first round, Trey will get picked. If a WR has one 1,000+ yard year and is a junior with his type of profile (former 5 star and LSU signee), then it is very likely he goes to the NFL. Next week will be a huge week for his stock. If he scores a touchdown or two and has 100-150 yards receiving, he will get a ton of mention as one of the best WRs in the country, and will shoot up to the top ten. Take Palmer in while we have him. He's on pace for something we have never seen here before.
  16. I see what you're saying. All I can add to that is with the major change happening to CFB, it is imperative to be trending up, and they obviously felt they weren't so they made that move. Either way, this is good for us. Let them stand in uncertainty for a decade or so.
  17. Idk man, they have been trending down for years. I saw this coming about a year ago, and knew then this couldn't last. They're just not that talented. You can only develop so much. They missed on guys, and the line play has regressed on both sides. In addition, the WR and DB play was not up to par for the BIG. They were being outpaced by Indiana and Purdue in the regard. Hell, we are much better than them in those regards. And lastly, they have been benefitting a ton from their schedule. Once they started playing the better teams in the conference, the flaws were magnified.
  18. I know this is about who replaces Scott but... The next two to three years is going to be huge for the BIG. There is going to be a major coaching shift in the conference. We are witnessing Minnesota climb to the top of the West and by a good margin. Paul Chryst will not be around much longer, and who knows what happens to Wiscy from there (Leonard might get offered the job). I don't think Ferentz is guaranteed to be there in three years either because at some point, they're going to need to get out of purgatory with "imagining what it would look like with an offense". I think Bieliema is taking the Illini past Wisconsin and Iowa soon. Northwestern has completely flamed out, and I can see a world where Pat takes the money and opportunity somewhere else. Jeff Brohm might leave after this year for Louisville, his alma mater, as it seems they may be looking to move on from their current HC. Also, this might be my most controversial take, but I do not think Ryan Day is safe or that great of a HC. In the grand scheme of it, Ohio St isn't that good, and has dropped a notch or two since Urban left. They will probably squeak by a horrible BIG this year, but if they make it to the playoff, they will get curb stomped, and I think it will be very telling from there what will happen with him as the HC going forward. With USC and UCLA coming in, I can see it changing so much. It is incredible to say that Jim Harbaugh is the safest bet going forward. If they beat OSU this year, Day will be gone. This hire is crucial for Nebraska. If we get it right, we change the entire complexity of the conference. We have to get it right.
  19. What a waste of 4 years. Also, OU is not that good. Been saying it and that's why seeing our team quit with three quarters left and with a tied game is more alarming than anything I have seen.
