  1. 1. Ban the players from Twitter. 2. Change the culture of negativity. There is too much "us-against-the-world," too much caring what the fans or the media think. Both coaches and players need to refocus on their role within the program so that they can actually enjoy going to work every day. 3. Overhaul the program's approach to public relations. The website needs a restart, but really, Nebraska needs to control the media narrative, rather than being controlled by it. That means giving more access at practice, giving more access to players and to coaches alike until there's no room for
  2. The playoffs? You mean the four-team playoff starting next year? How about we finish in the top 25 before we start worrying about making the playoffs. Who knows if Craig Bohl would out-coach those guys. Could he? I mean, he took an FCS team to Manhattan and out coached an outstanding head football coach by the name of Bill Snyder, and defeated the defending Big 12 champions. Give him the talent and facilities and support of Nebraska compared to North Dakota State, and who knows who he might be able to out coach... By the way, that win over K-State was just the most recent of 5 consecut
  3. But the more I watch things, the more I think there is a place for a hands-off head coach that simply provides stability and morale to the team and makes broad, command-level decisions. Imagine Brown with Pat Narduzzi as DC and Noel Mazzone as OC, for example. It would totally work. You would want that staff going up against the staff of Alabama, LSU, OSU, Auburn, etc. in the playoffs if we happen to make it? Po, what's your point? You keep bringing up the playoffs as if our current staff would fare well against any of those opponents, even though they haven't even been able to brin

  6. Jesus, how awkward is this gonna be if they don't fire him?
  7. Can we also stop pretending that Brown's faith is the problem? Nobody gives a damn that he's Christian, and that's never what got him in trouble. He got in trouble because he came out and said that it's OK for people to be discriminated against based on their sexuality.
  8. Isn't Bo an unapologetic Christian? And Osborne? And isn't Brown in such a place of authority even now?
  9. But it would never happen, because as a head coach, you aren't going to get the luxury of hiring coordinators who are more qualified to be a head coach than you are.
  10. Brown would be the most logical interim head coach to me, too. Not because I think he'd be a good head coach, but because I think he might be the only guy on the staff who is loyal to the University of Nebraska regardless of who else is around him. If Bo is gone, and the other assistants have no shot at getting the head job, what's their motivation in December? I mean, sure, they might try to win the bowl game because they love their players, but recruiting? Not going to happen.
  11. Brown's never even been a coordinator. Never been an assistant head coach. I mean, we all love the guy and he'd be great in front of the media, but come on...
  12. Bohl would be a pretty intriguing hire, if you ask me. Has demonstrated success as a head coach, understands how to recruit in the midwest. His teams play smart, and they play disciplined. They have become a superpower in their league, and have been routinely taking down FBS programs (like the defending Big 12 champions). It would be fair to say that Bo is a more successful defensive coordinator than Bohl. It would be equally fair to say that Bohl is a more successful head coach.
  13. Um… is that the punchline? reminds me of this:
  14. If you don't like what the media is writing, stop reading it. There's no excuse for letting it affect your program.

  15. "Us against the world" will work to motivate people in short spurts but not long-term, because the motivation comes from other people, and not from within. Even Alabama will concoct some ridiculous "us-against-the-world" narrative heading into a big game, but those games are truly won back in June/July. Us-against-the-world doesn't work in June/July, or in Fall camp, when every fan base thinks they're going to go undefeated and the media doesn't have access and isn't writing about the coaching staff being on the hot seat. During those summer days, which is when great football teams are for
  16. Sure, but they're never going to. EVER. The real problem is that the coaches and players don't know how to deal with it other than make it an "us-against-the-world" culture, and that doesn't work when things are going well and the fans are behind you.
  17. I'm someone who doesn't think Bo should be let go, but this culture of "us-against-the-fans," is one of the biggest indictments of his coaching staff. I like posting on this board because I like Nebraska, and I like football. I enjoy talking about the game of football. It's a great chess match. I don't know that much about it, and I wouldn't be able to teach someone proper throwing mechanics or how to tackle properly. I barely understand gap integrity or how adjusting a blocking scheme can affect a defense. However - to the players and coaches - I do know how to fix this: STOP READING
  18. I don't understand our punt return strategy. We don't try to block it, and we don't try to return - we just let their coverage right down the field, so there are 5 PSU players surrounding our punt returner by the time he catches the ball.
  19. Oh YEAH? You're probably right..That's NOT really the Toyota Guy in the instructional videos.. You sure seem to know what you're talking about though. Your description of the timing of that song is really unique but I kinda like it..It's a lot simpler than what/how I vaguely remember those other "Music Educators" describing it..The switch from 4/4 to 9/5 might be an exaggeration but what they were debating seemed just as implausible. (Wish I could still find their discussion..it was more than a little entertaining)...I doubt it will help me any better to hit the drum head at
  20. John Bonham was a great rock drummer. "Nobody's Fault But Mine," is a great song, but it isn't in 9/5, it's just in good old 4/4 time with the occasional pause and some mixed meter thrown in on occasion, and you have no clue what you're talking about.
  21. I'm also a music educator, and it's always great to have students in the schools composing or improvising music - engaging in creative activity. As far as the drums go… If playing in 4/4 time and 5/8 time simultaneously isn't sophisticated, I don't know what is. I guess it depends on how you define sophistication. I'm defining it as "including a high degree of complexity and refined structure." If you're thinking of "sophistication," as something that is limited to upper-class, pompous wine-tasters, than you're not going to think of hip-hop as sophisticated, because it's usually vulgar or
