Who should our next HC be?

He wasn't.  As of Saturday morning he hadn't even talked with Nebraska or any of the NIL groups and they will most likely talk to the potential coach (Although there was a rumor one of the NIL groups followed him on Twitter for hot minute.) When that does happen I'm sure someone employed there will leak it out and it will be solid information. But the MR 2 day interview is made up stuff by another board trying to get members. There had been 3 coaches that reached out that can been some what confirmed from the coaching world side of things and their comments in the press and twitter. One signed an extension. One has an extension on his disk unsigned but ready to sign and the third person we weren't interested in. I know fairly confidently we reached out to several folks including Fickle who didn't return a call (that did come from a slip un in the AD office before a football game tail gate), and most aren't very interested because they have better chances where they are to succeed or they feel they will have a better shot at a good school in the next couple of years. Nebraska is kind of turd in a punch bowl to most coaches. So options are limited.  I think the "vote" of confidence in the media that Trev is doing an excellent job was also made up. I don't think the BOR would agree at this point if you ask them privately.  They are nervous that we don't have someone locked up yet after 70 plus days and really we need to have that done this week. I was told Mickey would be our fall back and he is one of the last two in the running for ASU. Not sure why he's up their list so high.  Outside of Nebraska where you had ties, you wouldn't really look at a life long receivers coach who was interim coach that won 2 games even if he's a good recruiter and has played the part right and said mostly the right things during those 2 months you were in charge. So props to him for getting that chance. I think if he was offered both jobs he would probably leave. I think he's frustrated that he hasn't been interviewed for the job as of last week similar to the way Turner Gill was treated by Steve Peterson when Frank was fired. Just my 2 cents on MJ's thoughts don't know anyone who's directly heard from him. Just folks around UNL that "get that sense" .  Pretty important week and not a lot of good information out there. Anything that is out there is from sources not inside the AD office and pretty vague. 

Like this..??

I dream of the day when we are all sitting around discussing post season bowl games, opponents....bla bla bla....instead of who our next coach is going to be.

 

It seems like this has been where we are at forever.

And I was young when this “let’s not slide into mediocrity” crap started. Now I may need stadium assistance to get to my seat if we ever make another bowl game.

Wow... this post is littered with so many self-contradictory items it makes my head spin. The bolded portion is the only thing worth value here folks.

I believe it’s a fair statement at this point to say the situation could be very fluid. We’ve had recent reports of Klieman moving up, Ruhle being close then moving back, Meyer coming (doubtful), and Leipold gaining momentum. All the while Mickey Joseph’s name is not exactly going away.

 

About the only constant, other than the numerous guesses, is that Leipold’s wife, Kelly, has not come out to say she no longer plans to be back at The Booth next fall.

what is "The Booth"  - is that the Kansas stadium nickname or something?
