Why we lost to Michigan State - a dose of truth


Recommended Posts

Hello Husker Nation,

 

It will be hard to sleep tonight after this game. Before this season began I knew how it would end: we would start out winning the first 4 or 5 games and then we would come to the game that could catapult our ranking to the top 10 and we would lose. The loss would come at a time when a number of teams ranked ahead of us would also lose. After the first big loss we would go on to finish the season with 2-3 loses, miss out on the conference championship and then end up at a mid-December bowl with a 50% chance of winning. This season will go down that path and here is why:

 

Bo Pelini has an NFL background. Folks in the NFL have a game plan for each game and they stick to is no matter what. A NFL coach does not trust his back up D-line, quarterback etc. No one but the starting lineup is trusted. An NFL coach keeps telling himself, "This plan will work because I want it to work." There is so much money on the line in the NFL that a coach would not dream of taking his first string quarterback out in the second quarter and put the second string guy in when things are not working. An NFL coach often loses 6-7 games a year and still makes it to the playoffs, with a shot at the super bowl. A NFL coach does not understand the spirit, enthusiasm and potential that can be unleashed in a college football game just by changing the game plan in the middle of the game.

 

Tommy was not on his game tonight and for some reason Ameer could not get going. Bo's nephew and Coach Cotton's son both performed poorly so they should have started the third quarter on the bench . Bo should have pulled Tommy half way through the second quarter and put Cross and Newbie in the game instead of Ameer. Cross was not seen all night!! Did he miss the bus? The last time I checked he was a one man wrecking crew.

 

Bo finally decides in the fourth quarter to sit Tommy and what is the result? A touchdown. So what does Bo do next? He puts Tommy back in. Crazy

 

Bo has too much NFL in him to be the head coach of a D-1 football program that is in the running for the national championship each year. I am tired of seeing Bo scream and yell obscenities at our players when he is the one that needs a little schooling. We have the best players in the country and they deserve a better coach.

 

To win the national championship a coach will have to go into the locker room at half time 2-3 times a year and tell the players that he is going to implement plan B in the second half. Bo never has a plan B!! Coach Osborne implemented plan B many times, even during national championship games, and we all know how his career turned out. Other programs would be thrilled to win 9-10 games a year, but it is different in Nebraska and the other powerhouse programs.

 

Bo needs to go if we truly want to win a national championship. That is the truth.

 

A little upset in Cali.

Tommy got hurt and came out for the rest of the drive. I feel dumber for having read this.

Didn't realize coach Osborne was such a floozy...
