  1. I love the way Bo runs the program as much as anybody. But you can't let the on-field performance sink to the point where fans "just hope that we're not embarrassed." That's what it's come to, and that's not acceptable. If we had played UCLA close today, if we had played competitively for 4 quarters - I'd be fine. Not satisfied, but not disappointed either. But we got embarrassed. Again. You can't call 63 against Ohio State or 70 against Wisconsin flukes. It's a pattern. Bo's still got this season to right the ship, but his seat should be on fire right now. No doubt, I agree that Pe

  3. Richt would be an outstanding hire, but Eichorst would have to pony up some serious stacks.
  4. As far as the Offense vs. Defense debate... Of course both units are to blame for the collapse, along with the special teams. Every phase of the game was bad. However, the offense had a significantly worse game considering the expectations of them. They have 9 returning starters. The best WR corps in the Big Ten. A four year starter at QB. An experienced offensive line. A deep group of running backs. With all of that, they couldn't do ANYTHING in the second half. And in the first half, they managed a TD off of SJB's interception (short field), off of a UCLA special teams blunder (short
  5. At this point, Eichorst's job is similar to Osborne's in early-mid 2007. He needs to take the pulse of the boosters and recruits week-to-week, because if it reaches the point where the staff loses all forward momentum, that's when it's time to make changes.
  6. Difference situations. Frank looked like he was moving in a positive direction away from what wasn't working. Bo seems to be stuck and from the looks of it, unwilling to change. I agree its different situations. The perception will be the same though. I think. Id like to see them throw some serious money at Ssomeone though. Who knows, maybe Bo will wake up. I think the national perception regarding Nebraska in 2003 was that it had hit a low in 2002, but was starting to adapt and recover. Right now, the national perception of Nebraska is that it's on the way down, and fas
  7. Nothing against Scott Frost, but why would you hire another inexperienced coach to this staff? Eh, maybe I'm wrong. I think he'll show by the end of the year that he's worth hiring. Doesn't need to be Frost eiether, just needs to be somebody that will actually establish an identity on the offensive side of the ball.
  8. Who? Serious question. Frost. Oregon about to rip up an SEC team.
  9. The defense showed flashes of being very good. That's really all I expected. They'll get better.
  10. If anyone knows my past on here, they know I am insanely hard on Bo. But even I believe Bo can be the guy. But for him to be that guy, Bo himself must be willing to make changes to the program (ie., coaching staff, weight program, and recruiting). Bo is smart. Sometimes too damn smart for his own good. And the players respect him. Those two things alone still give me some hope he can be a terrific HC for us. You can get embarrassed on national TV only so many times...
  11. Personally, I don't put this loss on Taylor. Like Spielman, I'd like to see him running the ball, and maybe I'm wrong, but it really looks like he's been coached out of that. He looks indecisive and has all year, and Beck has been praising him, calling him a game manager. If Taylor could combine everything - a great game manager and a great playmaker - he'd be the best player in college football. Instead, he's been turned into Zac Lee.
  12. I'm not sure I've ever seen as dynamic a player as Taylor Martinez so overcoached.
  13. Anybody else remember in the offseason when Beck tweeted and compared this group to the scoring explosion? http://memecrunch.com/generator/template/20431/willy-wonka/
  14. Did we just run a fake punt with a defensive tackle?
  15. The offense has put together a single good drive, and that drive was sustained by a penalty and a fourth and one conversion that was very close to being a false start.
  16. I'm not even upset about our defensive play overall. They've exceeded most people's expectations. However, much like the first two games, the offense is straight up mediocre. HAVE TO BE ABLE TO RUN THE BALL.
  17. Anybody else feel like when opponents get the ball inside our 10 it's almost a guaranteed TD these days? We're horrible at the goalline.
