Title: Nebraska's struggle for relevance.
Post by: Kat Kid on October 26, 2014, 02:13:57 PM
Since the break up of the old Big 12, those that left have mostly found what they were looking for: athletically, academically, culturally. 

Colorado broke with the central time zone crowd and joined the west coast, fulfilling their yearning to be a coastal cultural oasis among frosted mountaintops.

Texas A&M showed that they could be courted and valued without Texas and found a cultural home for their angry East Texas militaristic traditions among the Confederate yearning of the Old South.

Missouri seemed to be searching for an identity and were open to adopting whichever identity was available.  They began with important talk of their rightful place among the large public academic heavy weights of the Big Ten, then after turning tides, fully embraced the elite college football reputation of the SEC, even after being shoehorned in to the East division in a modern day Missouri Compromise.

The most successful and historic program that left the Big 12 was Nebraska.  Their reasons for leaving were academic, cultural and athletic.  They were upset with the power of Texas and the SWC voting bloc in the political machinations of the Big 12, they had largely lost ground competitively, and they felt stifled academically in the Big 12 among the land grants and the tier twos and wished to step up to the big time public ivies of the Big Ten.

Almost immediately there were obstacles: they were unceremoniously dumped by the AAU upon arrival to the Big Ten and were even voted out by some of their new colleagues, their football team continued to compete on the fringe of true national relevance, their cultural reputation now the hicks of the conference. 

Nearly everything seems to be going right for the Husker football team.  Nebraska currently has a legitimate Heisman contender on paper in Ameer Abdullah, a 7-1 team on track for a Big Ten title game berth and either a re-match against top 10 Michigan St or Ohio St.  But on the national scene, Nebraska is an after thought. 

Ranked 16th in the Coaches and 17th in the AP the Huskers must be shocked that no one seems to be paying them much mine.  or perhaps they've become used to being out of the national eye, even accepted their new role as a national underdog after years of being despised as a national power.

Still it is hard to imagine that the Nebraska fan base does not notice that they are the 14th ranked one loss team in the coach's behind 4 SEC team and 3 Big 12 teams all with one loss.  Perhaps most infuriating is that two loss LSU jumped Nebraska in the AP. 

To complete the humiliation, Ameer Abdullah is not a top 5 Heisman candidate despite his  FBS leading rushing numbers and highlight reel plays. 

Like some Greek tragedy, Nebraska attempted to escape the shadow of Texas only to become even more irrelevant.  The shadow of Texas has been replaced by the shadow of mediocrity offered by the Big Ten.  the Big Ten is now widely seen as an inferior conference to the SEC, the PAC-12 and yes, the Big 12. 

There may be escape from the droughts of the Texas sun, but there is no escape from the foul reputation of the ever expanding Big Ten.  It is there that by choice the Cornhuskers till a barren field and a harvest of dust

Nebraska needs to schedule at least 2 power conference teams in non conference every year if they ever want to be taken seriously. The Big 10 is just too awful and keeps getting worse.

Being totally serious, I'd love to let WVU go find a new home in the ACC or something and take NU back. 

Then, if Iowa wanted to get out of Loserville (Big Ten), I'd trade ISU straight up for them.

That's a conference I'd go bonkers for.

I walked by some respect in the north lot wearing a red N shirt, out of curiosity i asked them who they played today.  With a grin of excitement at someone bothering to notice they had a football program, he responded "Rutgers!  They beat 'em!"   Shocked by how sad a spectacle he looked trying to act excited about a win over an irrelevant New Jersey team, i tried to smile warmly, nod, and head back to the car to celebrate a SHUTOUT over rough ridin' TEXAS at aggieville.  Its like seeing the guy you didn't get along with in high school drop out and take a job at a gas station and try to tell you how great everything is going, youd like to make fun of them but thered just be no joy in it.

On my way home from vision quest we decided to take I-80 across Nebraska while Nubb played @ Northwestern.  1)  Wow what a pathetic game.  The announcers were complaining about the refs and the field conditions, saying it was unfair.  2)  Stopped in two gas stations along the way, never saw a single red N on anyone's shirt.  And one gas station attendant saw my hat and said he likes K-State football.  This is like 30 minutes from Lincoln.  Like holy crap.

Kstate had no problem staying in the Big XII because beating Texas wasn't all that hard. NU could never do it...and it bothered them... Really bad. So, bad that instead of toughing it out and out-living Mack Brown, they took the easy exit to the Big 10 where they thought the conference title was easy pickings. Another failed gamble. And the powers that be shuffled the divisions so that the best teams weren't all lumped into the same bracket, cuz, you know you wouldn't want NU to have to play tOSU, Michigan State, and Michigan all on the same year.

Their remaining schedule:
Purdue
@ Wisconsin
Minnesota
@ Iowa

Ya, lets all pile in the Winnebago and go to Wisconsin!

Meanwhile, EMAW gets to travel to beautiful Ft. Worth where a clash of two Top 10 teams is taking place, and will decide the college football playoff pecking order. (pops collar)....

The big 10 is more classy has more history and better all the way around.   You must be a young buck.   Give it time the Big 10 will be back.   The big 12 isn't that good either.   I get sick of people that says it is.

The Big 12 is the 2nd best conference.

Nebraska is a better fit geographically for the big 10.

What? NU is in the same conference as teams from OH, PA, NJ, and MD. The closest school is a few hours away.

Quote
Currently there are 11 teams averaging more than 40 points a game. Baylor sits at #1 with just over 50. There are three big 12 and three big ten teams in that 11. Not sure what you are referring to when you say "wide open" but I would think you mean high scoring so not much difference there.

There are 18 teams allowing 20 and under in Scoring defense. Of those teams there is one Big 12 team and five Big ten teams.

Sorry, I'd rather be part of a conference that has teams that score AND teams that can play D. That 62-58 circus between Baylor and TCU was a joke....don't want to be part of that kind of game ever.

I would bet more people care about a bad Michigan team vs a bad Penn State team than will care about #9K-State vs #6TCU. I certainly do.

On the old K-State fans site, in 2000, I predicted that Nebraska would fall into irrelevancy. My prediction was that K-State might actually win a conference championship and even a National Championship before Nebraska.   In 2010, when Osborne and Pearlman decided to go to the Big 10, little did they realize they completed the final stages of the prophecy.   In 2015, there will be graduating class at Nebraska that will have never experienced a championship, conference or national. We're only 6 wins left from winning the NC (note:  I'm only focused on TCU at the moment.)

They still think KSU will end up in the MW when/if conference Armageddon happens?  :confused:

I've heard the KSU/northwestern comparo a lot. It still makes no sense to me. NW had one decent year. We're staring at a possible 10+ win season for the third out of that last 4 years...

I wouldn't worry too much about realignment. Word is the Big 10 takes schools that aren't even AAU members nowadays. Post about 8-9 wins a year and they'll be salivating.

I'm guessing that this is the first time they have been 8-1 and not in the top 10. I mean, at least Texas is losing games and that's why they aren't ranked. Nub keeps winning and poll voters are like "Nope, they're not that good!"  :ROFL:

Miami and McNeese State are the only two schools they have beaten with winning records. Miami is 6-3 and McNeese would have beat them if they would have just let Daniel play the whole game.

you can't look at a schedule vs 5 top 25 teams (NONE AT HOME!) and say, well i bet we could win 3 or 4 of those and feel pretty great about ourselves, because while that may be true, the topic at hand is how "close" we are to winning a national championship, and to do that, you have to sweep 5 in a row. again, none of those games are at home.

agreed its a long shot... but by that logic..Nebraska has a muich easier path to winning out. ..... but I don't think they make the Top 4 with 1 loss.

They aren't even good at melting down anymore. The big 10 has taken away their spirit. Just random posts of "Tressel is available" in between posts about how they never really believed in Pelini. Really "Beige" stuff.

FOOTBALL
Barfknecht: Gordon-led Badgers respond in a record way

Column by Lee Barfknecht / World-Herald staff writer | Updated 12 hours ago

MADISON, Wis. — NCAA football rushing history doesn’t come along often these days.

In an era when the forward pass is considered God’s gift to the game, running backs too often are relegated to change-of-pace or even decoy duty. Only one true tailback in this century has won the Heisman Trophy.

On Saturday, Wisconsin’s Melvin Gordon put himself in prime position to join Alabama’s Mark Ingram in 2009 on the winner’s list.

Gordon did more carrying a football in a single game during Saturday’s 59-24 drubbing of Nebraska than O.J. Simpson or Billy Sims or Earl Campbell or Archie Griffin or Mike Rozier or Bo Jackson or Barry Sanders or anybody from the rushing era.

“He’s the best of the best,” Wisconsin coach Gary Andersen said.

Look at those names again and understand what Gordon’s 408 yards on 25 carries — in only three quarters — means.

The junior from Kenosha, Wisconsin, wiped away the rushing mark of 406 yards set 15 years ago by TCU’s LaDainian Tomlinson. More importantly, note who Tomlinson’s record came against.

It was perennial pushover UTEP. In fact, most of the NCAA’s top 10 rushing efforts have come against piddling programs — now-defunct Pacific, Eastern Michigan twice, Akron and Missouri twice in the 1990s when the Tigers were toothless.

Gordon did it against Nebraska.

Yes, Nebraska, which entered the game 25th nationally in total defense and is a school so proud of its defensive heritage that it has a nationally known nickname of Blackshirts.

After Saturday’s utter mess, somebody needs to collect those sacred black practice jerseys and lock them up for as long as so-called defensive guru Bo Pelini is the head coach.

If you think that’s a minority opinion, round up the tweets of some former Huskers as the yardage meter spun faster and faster.

The only people who knew Gordon would get the ball a lot Saturday were the 80,539 people in Camp Randall Stadium and millions more watching on television.

Yet the 6-foot-1, 213-pounder still broke off single-play gains of 42, 62, 16, 39, 44, 43, 68 and 26 yards before jollying on the sideline for the entire fourth quarter.

That’s a sign of Gordon’s greatness, and a clanging alarm for anybody who thinks Nebraska football is either improving or nationally relevant (I’m talking to you, Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst).

The Blackshirts’ lone consolation prize was they almost made Gordon cry.

Early in the second quarter, with Nebraska leading 17-10, the Huskers forced and recovered a second fumble from Gordon. On the sideline, teammates and coaches tried to console him.

“I was just out of it,” he said. “We had the momentum. We were driving down the field. Losing the ball can really turn the game around. It was kind of depressing.”

The message was the Badgers still looked to Gordon to make game-changing plays despite the early adversity.

Ah, yes. Adversity.

“We’re coached to be ready for it,” Gordon said. That’s called “a money quote.”

How did Wisconsin respond after his second fumble?

The Badgers took the ball away from Nebraska I-back Terrell Newby four plays later, then scored again in two plays — a 39-yard burst from Gordon and 17-yard run from backup Corey Clement.

How did Nebraska respond to that tying touchdown? By turtling.

The Husker offense, on its next seven possessions, gained the following number of first downs: 0, 2, 1, 0, 0, 1 and 0. Wisconsin in that span went touchdown, punt, touchdown, touchdown, touchdown and touchdown.

Here comes another “money quote.”

“This team was ready for the moment,” UW’s Andersen said.

This nationally staged contest essentially was for a trip to the Big Ten championship game as the West Division representative and a chance to boost Heisman Trophy bids for Gordon and Nebraska’s Ameer Abdullah.

“This game meant a lot, forget about the statistics,” Gordon said. “If we lost this game, we knew it would be tough for us to get a Big Ten championship.”

Nebraska, with two weeks to prepare and the alleged desire to finally win a meaningful road game, pulled its all-hat-no-cattle routine. The Huskers are all but certain to add another year to their conference championship drought that goes back through 2000.

I asked Andersen how his 24th-ranked offense could drill holes worth 627 yards into a top 25 defense like Nebraska’s. He praised his offensive coaches for configuring a highly refined game plan in five days.

“We had very good schemes that were difficult to handle,” Andersen said. “I don’t spend a lot of time with the offensive coaches, but I do get a look at practice every single day.

“There are a lot of moving parts. And there is a lot of physicality. When those kids get a little momentum going, they pride themselves on being able to run the ball.”

Then came another “money quote.”

“This team,” Andersen said, “prepares very, very, very well, and they practice smart against each other.”

Especially Gordon, with the proof being his record 408 yards.

“Hearing that number,” UW offensive tackle Rob Havenstein said, “you’re thinking you would be tired if that was a regular conditioning drill, let alone a football game against Nebraska, a top defense. Melvin is that special a guy.”

What is special about Nebraska remains much more difficult to see.

If the BIG10 is smart these refs would have every call go Nebraska's way, they need two 11-1 teams in the conference title game if they want to have a shot at the playoff

ok time to hit the locker room.  Regroup.  Make some adjustments.  And come back out firing in the second half.  I am not giving up that easily.  We are still in this game.  It's just one score.

The problem is we play in a weak conference. We will win 9 games and suck. It's like a Frickin curse. Bo won't get fired.

f#*k this team. Another big game another embarrassing performance. Can't wait to see how Pelini spins this. Get him out of there and he can take Beck and Cotton with him. Can't wait to see what recruits decommit after watching this piss poor performance.

Next time I complain about the lack of ESPN respect, I will remember this moment.

This is the end, beautiful friend
This is the end, my only friend, the end
Of our elaborate plans, the end
Of everything that stands, the end
No safety or surprise, the end
I'll never look into your eyes, again
that's the stuff we come here for.

Quote
The vaunted Blackshirts now hold the NCAA record for most rush yards allowed. Congrats everyone

Quote
I will definitely be boycotting next week's home game. My 2 seats will not be sold and will not be filled. This has gone on for far too long. Winning 9 games a year against teams like Illinois, Purdue and SW Directional U while losing to every top 25 team you play is bad enough. Getting humiliated on national TV consistently is too much. WE the FANS have to make the University understand this is unacceptable!

This, they've already seen how firing a 10-3 coach led them down this path of mediocrity, and now their program is stuck in this perfect rut. Nebraska will almost always be able to beat 4 non con teams, 3 wins over teams like NW, Illinois, and Purdue, at least 1 cupcake from the other division, and at least find a win out of Iowa-Minnesota-Wisky. Boom, 9-3 seasons guaranteed practically every year, and maybe a bowl win. Must be the greatest thing for Bo.

nobody could win fewer than 9 games with their schedule. they are essentially guaranteed a 9+ win season and top 30 ranking every year. their only hope is to schedule two other top 30 teams in the non con and get their asses whipped so they can fire him. they've shown that they don't care how big of a fuckup as a human being he is so that's not an out.

The complainers on the husker boards make me laugh   

because you say you are humiliated and you can not take it any more and Bo must go, I laugh when I think about that.  I think if you are humiliated and angry about Nebraska's loses and little thing like that, and you get cancer or something to kill you, and you are laying on your death bed, taking your last breath, you are going to be laying there and the last words you will say are, "I am humiliated, because of Nebraska's loses, and I am so angry, because Nebraska did not win more championships."  And when an athelete's family member or friend dies, they always say, "I know they are looking down from heaven, on me." 
I find that humorous also, because I read the Bible all the way through, and I have not seen it mentioned even once, that when a person goes to heaven, they will be looking down on earth watching sports events, I see the people in heaven, will worship and serve the LORD all day long.  As of now I don't have cancer, but I do have congestive heart failure and the VA doctors have told me that I have to slow down and not worry or get stressed out, so I have decided to accept whatever happens in my life and to look at the funny side of life.  Because in the end, we are all going to die, and the final score really does not matter.

I will always have 38-9. It's pretty great to bring up in conversation:
"Memorial Stadium? I've been there once. If was pretty great. Cats won 38-9 and I threw up all over your stadium."
"The last game the 'Cats played against the Huskers? I don't really remember that one, but the last time I saw them play live was in 2003. Do you remember that one? 'Cats won 38-9 and I threw up all over Memorial Stadium."


Gonna win 'em all!

What's goEMAW's obsession with its nearest D1 college athletic peers?  Weird, its like sports is about something more than just naval gazing at one's own program all year long.   Next thing you know, everyone's going to be actively rooting for another team to lose a game in order to improve KSU's standings.

Ms. wacky and I stopped by johnnys on saturday to watch some football before a wedding we had to attend. There was some super annoying Nebraska fans sitting right beneath us. Like, they were really rough ridin' bad. I then noticed as we were about to leave that some Wisconsin fans had walked in and they were looking for a seat (cause there was none to be found). I then chugged my drink and waived them over to take my table. Nebraska was winning at the time, but I wanted to see what kind of conflict that would create for the husker fans. After we gave them the table, I checked the score two hours later and it brought a big smile to my face. I hope those guys really gave it to them!  :D

At first blush this leads me to believe you got married this weekend.  And had time to watch some football and crush some brews beforehand.  If so, that's amazing.

I'm so glad they got rolled.  Local talk radio was talking about how they'd be "in the hunt" if they beat Wisconsin.  Not sure how beating a team ranked lower than them would propel them 10-12 spots in the playoff poll.

Not "formally".  With that said, if you're attending multiple weekend weddings in the fall during football season, then you've attained a level of "whippedness" that most married men aren't subjected to.

This. 

And, thanks for missing the point Officer Daris... Football season is roughly 12 weeks long, thus leaving another 40 weeks for the oblivious and selfish wenches of the world to choose to have their "celebrations of an important life event".

my dad (wsu alum) bailed on the wedding of a close family friend b/c it was the same weekend the shockers were playing in the final four.  On the one hand it seemed kind of petty, on the other, it was literally just the 2nd time in his life the shockers had reached the final 4 and the only other time he was too young to remember. 

FWIW the day after my wedding day the shockers were playing at home against the last or second to last place team in the mvc, a game they were sure to win by at least 20 and I'm pretty sure had that completely uninteresting and unimportant game been on my wedding day that my dad would have skipped my wedding too.

No, but the world damn near stops when the Cats are playing. Like Bookie said, you are given 52 Saturdays each year... Be considerate of your guests and avoid the 12 (or in this year's case 10) Saturdays when K-State has a game. It's not that hard. If you threw a dart at a calendar you'd have an 80% chance in 2014 of not having this problem.

I really only know about the high end ones so you are probably right.  Anything elite costs more in the spring and it steadily goes down as the summer progresses.

yeah I was pissed when I found out I'd be missing the games. but, once I was actually there and drinking with my buds it wasn't that big of a deal. I actually totally forgot about the game while at the reception, minus the random updates from the DJamer.

however, checking my phone after the wedding and seeing that the cats shutout texas was pretty neat!   :)

I watched the Iowa state game on my phone while moving Ms. Wacky's brother and got to catch the whole 2nd half when we were all moved in. Met up with Mich in San Fran during the Auburn game.

How to be a college football coach who doesn't get fired for a while

By Faux Pelini on Nov 19 2014, 8:06a 7
Alex Goodlett/Getty Images

Being a college football coach is a good job, except for how hard it is to not get fired. Here are three rules to follow and some other good advice.
Tweet (78) Share (34) Share 7 Comments Rec 1

You watch a lot of college football on television, and you have become very good at that.

You know exactly which plays are working, because those plays make yards and touchdowns. We should run more of those plays, you say to yourself. Those plays were working earlier; why did we stop running those plays?

You are very good at clock management, too. You know exactly when a runner should get out of bounds, when the quarterback should spike the ball, when to call a time out. You often shout these instructions at your TV screen.

Sometimes you tell your beer that you could be a football coach. When you're stuck at a red light or eating a hot dog or watching cartoons, you think about how awesome that would be, and you are mostly right. Coaches make a lot of money. They are on TV a lot. They get a bunch of free clothes with logos and bright colors. They get to be in commercials and fly on special airplanes.

But before you take your first head coaching job, you need to know there are also many things that are bad.

You have to recruit a lot. This means visiting and texting 17-year-old boys every day, something that would get you arrested if you had a different job. You also have to spend time with rich alumni and pretend you are not spending time with them because they are rich alumni, that their richness isn't the reason you are drinking Bud Light with them on a Tuesday night in a weird banquet hall when you should be texting a 17-year-old.

But by far the worst thing about being a coach is that every day of every week, fans and alumni and media people grade your job performance. They are the Judgers. The Judgers review the score of your last football game, and if your team scored fewer points than the other team, they will explore what you did to make this horrible thing happen. The Judgers will say that you had a terrible game plan, that you didn't have the kids ready to play, that you were outcoached. The Judgers cannot know whether these things are true. But that does not matter, because these are not really explanations in the first place. They are insults.

The Judgers speak these insults as part of an evil plan. They repeat them at work and at bars and at gas stations until they seem true. They call radio stations from their cars. Dave from Springfield is a long-time-listener-first-time-caller, and even though he has never met you, he wants you to lose your job, to move to a new city, to force your kids to make new friends. You will pretend that you do not hear Dave and that you do not care, but you do and you do.

If you disappoint the Judgers, they will destroy you. They will not stop until their words force you onto something called the Hot Seat. They will then talk about how you have landed on the Hot Seat as if it was a sad accident and not something they did.

The Hot Seat is not a place to sit. It's not an actual thing at all, yet it can wreck your career. So before you take your first job, you must understand the most important thing: YOU HAVE TO AVOID THE HOT SEAT AT ALL COSTS. There are three rules for doing this.

RULE No. 1: Be expensive.

Make sure that it costs a pile of money to fire you. Your agent can help you do this by negotiating a big buyout clause or a backloaded contract or a weird penalty that your school will have to pay to get rid of you.

Once you have done that, find out which people would have to pay that money. These are the Money People. You must make the Money People happy, or at least not make them sad. Who are the Money People? Your bosses have budgets, so they are Money People. The donors who write big checks are Money People. The season ticket holders are Money People, in a sort of tiebreaker way.

The Firing Formula is the thing that will determine whether you get fired at any point in time. You will get fired when:

The cost of firing you < How much the Money People hate you

Once firing you becomes worth it under the Firing Formula, your job will be gone.

RULE No. 2: Have the two intangibles (the Mack Brown rule).

Intangible No. 1: Be likable. Nobody likes firing a nice person. Be charming. Smile a lot. Be humble. Say things like, (1) "We were very fortunate," and, (2) "Oh I don't know about that, Jim!" and, (3) "I'm just so proud of these kids." And talk about adversity and how much of it you have to overcome. SO MUCH ADVERSITY. If you don't have any adversity, you need to make some up, then overcome it and talk about it.

Intangible No. 2: Be your school's boyfriend or girlfriend. Make everyone believe you love your school more than anything. This is a giant lie, of course. They hired you because they had a job opening, and you took the job because you needed one. But pretend that fate brought you to the school and that you love it MORE THAN ANYTHING IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD, because the Judgers and Money People want to believe this very badly. Also, the longer you are at your school, the more everyone gets used to you, like a paint color or a comfortable couch, and the more weird it would feel to not have you there, even if you have become bad at coaching.

Now, even if you have these two intangibles, you will not keep your job longer than the Firing Formula allows. But you will be able to minimize how much the Money People hate you and keep your job longer than you should.

RULE No. 3: Know the Main Thing.

The most important thing is to understand why you were hired in the first place.

This is easy, you say. Coaches are hired to win a bunch of football games.

Well, yeah, except not exactly. Studies show that on average, coaches lose approximately half of their football games every year, and only one of 128 at the top level wins the national title. Winning games is hard. Every coach you go against spends 110 hours a week trying not to get fired, just like you do.

The secret is that your job isn't just to win a bunch of football games. It's to win enough football games and do a few other things in order to allow the Main Thing to happen.

Each school has a different Main Thing, and it's up to you to figure out what your school's Main Thing is. The people at the school won't tell you, because they may not want to admit it or even realize it, but it's there.

At Nebraska, for example, the Main Thing is to make the fans feel like it can one day be the 1990s again. Whether it can or cannot actually be the 1990s again is not the point. That means the coach must win big games and bowl games and recruiting battles so it feels like the train is once again leaving the station for Titlesville. When Nebraska loses big games, the fans aren't just frustrated about the loss. They are frustrated because THIS ISN'T WORKING. Nebraska fans want building blocks and things to celebrate so it seems like the team is just a couple tweaks away from the top five. Tom Osborne created a monster; you must feed the monster, or the monster will eat you.

The good news is that there will be some pretty good job openings at the end of this season, so this is your big chance. For example, Michigan, Florida, and Kansas will be looking for a person like you. But you're smart, so before you accept one of these jobs, you want to know each school's Main Thing.

Michigan. At Michigan, the Main Thing is to make the fans feel proud of Michigan. Michigan, you see, is an Institution. Some people will tell you that the Main Thing is to beat Ohio State, but that's only important because it's a quick way to make people proud of Michigan.

This year, Brady Hoke's Michigan team got crushed by Notre Dame and then lost to Utah and Minnesota and Rutgers and Michigan State. As the losses piled up, Michigan people didn't want to talk about Michigan football as much. They were less proud of Michigan. Brady Hoke failed at the Main Thing, and he was placed on the Hot Seat.

And Hoke sent a concussed kid back into a football game either by accident or because he was disorganized or stupid. And that was very embarrassing. This was a different type of sin, but really the same one. BRADY HOKE EMBARASSED US, AGAIN.

He failed at the Main Thing, and he will soon be throwing all of his Michigan clothing into a garbage can.

Florida. When Florida hires you as its head football coach, they hand you a chest of shiny tools and treasures and expect you to unleash them and protect them. You have everything you need: beautiful weather, the neatest conference, and gifted high school athletes who were required by law to play no fewer than seven hours of football every day starting at age six.

So at Florida, the Main Thing is to make everyone feel like you are not going to get in the way of the winning, that you will let the winning happen. And if you can do it in a flashy way and score a lot of points, even better. Be cool. Be humble. Be tough. As a random example, don't be a yelly, inexperienced defensive-minded meathead. That is someone who appears to get in the way of the winning.

Kansas. If Kansas offers you the head coaching job, I want you to take it. It's in a good conference. The school has money and nice buildings. And their Main Thing is simple: make Saturdays fun. Play games that matter, avoid off-field drama, be likable, and have a chance for a breakout year once in a while. Pave the way to basketball season. THAT'S IT. You will never be the biggest deal at Kansas as long as the sport of basketball exists, but there are good things about that. You can have that job for a long time, if you just make Saturdays fun.

As you read this, Charlie Weis is lying on a very large couch and not coaching Kansas, mostly because he made Saturdays not fun at all. He was kind of a penis and made the football feel hopeless. Don't do that.

So, good luck with your first coaching job. I'm sure you'll do great. Make the Judgers and Money People happy (you won't) and you'll have a long successful career (you'll be fired).

3:20:45 on the espn feed they start.

talking head one: People in Nebraska are always looking at things to be upset about with Bo Pelini
talking head two: lots of pressure.  you want there to be pressure.
"for Bo Pelini the struggle is this might be as good as this program can be right now.  they might be a 9-4 program, they've been a 9-4 10-4 program for the past 7 years.  and with the competitive nature and landscape of college football this might be the new reality for Nebraska and its hard for Nebraska fans to accept that. its hard for Bo Pelini to accept that.  But I'm not so sure its not accurate."  (holy crap I had to listen to that 40 times to transcribe it.)

Not much to tell. It was fun to watch everyone file out of the stadium silently, and not make eye contact with anyone. like they were all embarrassed to be seen there. SO many of them base their own self worth off how good the football team is, it's sad to see.

Second- why in the world would he go there?  Why would you leave a tough situation at a p5 program to go to a tougher situation at a p5 program?  It Florida calls, then that's one thing.

Pelini finished with a 67-27 overall record. ? schools like Ole Miss, Georgia, South Carolina, Oklahoma State, Baylor, etc comparable records (or worse) over that time, and get WAY more acclaim and respect on the National scene.  Why is that?

You look at this list and you see loads of guys in to top 40 with worse records than Pelini....many from NU's own conferences over that time!  Pelini is #43 in their judgement.  Wow.

But still, gotta be a dream job for the next guy until he gets fired, guaranteed 9-3 seasons in the dogshit big 10 west and a fan base that's going to wonder for 7 years whether or not they should keep you or fire you until they do and give you 7.6 mill as a parting gift.

We have recruiting and many other things to move forward with. Quit crying over spilled milk. God damn do we live in a spoiled state with people that have had crap just handed to them.

Not much down side to this hire, he should be able to win 9 games a year in the big 10 west and do it in much more tolerable fashion.

I just hope he continues the current of downward slide of NU impact in KC recruiting.  Oregon State seemed to usually all be west coast kids with a few JCs and texas 3 stars

Did you know; Mike Riley went 3-8 (0-8) his first season at Oregon State, which coincidentally was the last year Nebraska won a national title. The next year he went 5-6 (2-6) and parlayed that success into a job as the HC of the San Diego Chargers. Fortunately for Mike, he was able to land back on his feet at OSU after going 14-34 in the NFL and he proceeded to turn them into a PAC 10/12 power with two 2nd place (tied) finishes and three 3rd place finishes. The pinnacle for Mike was in 2008 when the Beavers finished 9-4 (7-2) and won the illustrious Sun Bowl, finishing at #18/19 in the country.

If he can coach up Bo's players maybe he wins 10 instead of the 9 games that was Bo's ceiling. Maybe win the west of that crappity conference and perhaps somehow steal a conference championship game. He'll be enshrined, just as he's ready to retire.

Or maybe he just wins 9 every year.

I realize Oregon is a tough in-state situation.   But Oregon State has hardly sat around; they expanded and renovated their stadium, they overhauled and expanded their football offices, they built a nice weight room, and built a new indoor facility.   Even while doing all that Riley actually got worse, not better in the W-L column.   His first 3 seasons (during the second tenure) they won 28 games, after that he only touched 9 wins once.

It's not like Oregon was a powerhouse when Riley got to Oregon State. Oregon was bad at football until the last couple years in the 90s. They weren't a top 10 team until early 2000s. Riley didn't exactly take over with huge hurdles in his own state at least.

2. Not Elite
3. You are not Bama, OU, etc.
4. Not in Big 12 anymore, so no Texas kids = no championships
5. You are not going to get a LHC Bill Snyder
6. 9 wins/season is what you are.
7. Not even a top 25 job.

Riley lost at Oregon State and then went to the NFL. Then Erickson took the job and started winning a lot of games pretty much immediately. Then Riley came back and slid to mediocrity. He didn't build crap, and really just proved that a good coach can have a lot of success at OSU, and a mediocre coach will be mediocre.

Both can be true, they could have signed their financial aid agreement but still be out looking around. Robert Upshaw.

Year after year, I read posts about how Nebraska doesn't matter because we aren't in the top ten or top twenty or whatever. National media wants to write Nebraska off as a has-been.
 
But after Riley was hired, and this whole Pelini thing took off, I was reminded why Nebraska matters.
 
We have the best fans in the country and perhaps the world. No fan base is more loyal and more invested than we are. Despite the fact that we live in one of the least populated states, Huskers continue to win national fan polls.
 
There are Husker bars all over the country and Husker fans who will come out to support the team in every major city.
 
The Big Red may not be on top in terms of what we put on the field, but off the field... we are in a league of our own, and that is why Nebraska will always be relevant in the big picture, and eventually, when Riley rights this ship, we will prove to ESPN and all the other haters out there, that a great college football team can maintain in Lincoln, Nebraska.

I went to the Nebraska/Northwestern game last Saturday in Lincoln. Some friends of mine have season tickets.  The crowd was large and very disappointing.  Polite clapping seemed to be the biggest form of celebrating when a good play was made. Nebraska lost 30-28, but it seemed like the game wasn't even close.  No energy except for a few third downs; otherwise a lot of sitting.

Huge props to the management of the Big 10. They assimilated a unique property in Nebraska into a sh*tty mid level Big 10 team in less than 5 years while reaping the profits off their name brand 90s success for their network.

Old powers Ohio State and Michigan than use the money to hire big name coaches and insure they have very little issue rolling through that mediocre conference every year so that one of them gets in the playoff (most years) for the foreseeable future.

Hey Dlew, it's your old pal SB here again with some good news. I went through the Nebraska/Purdue game thread....so you didn't have to!
http://www.huskerboard.com/index.php?/topic/77186-official-purdue-game-discussion-thread/

Thread starts with this lil twitvid thingy. Can you feel it? I CAN!!! So pumped for our Huskers as they head into an 11 am battle with the 1-6 Boilermakers! :tscnubbs:

Quote
I truly think we win handily. No pressure, low expectations. Were gonna get to 6-6. Start in the right direction today boys! GBR     


Quote
NU in bottom 5 in country giving up big plays. Should do much better today because...Purdue.

Smallest Husker crowd Davison has ever seen.     
(Davison must be their Stanbot or something? :dunno: )

Quote
That's nice, that should show a glimpse of where Husker nation is as a whole to the rest of the country. Could hurt us if we don't get bowl eligible this season on where we go.     


Quote
Newby missed a hole there big enough to drive a truck through.     


Quote
That was a terribly executed play...........     


Quote
Yep, a field goal is pretty good for a drive starting on our own 6. Now let's play some more D!     

(...i got some terrible news...don't know what happened next, but...)


Quote
wow     


Quote
Lol we suck     


Quote
56 yard touchdown run by a slow true freshman Purdue qb. This team is so hard to watch     


Quote
Two offsides on special teams. Why are we paying that fu&*#r 500k. We never had offsides problems on special teams     


Quote
Our LB's are slow and have no fluidity in their hips.  Watch how long it takes them to break down and change direction.  They can't open their hips.     
Say hips again.

Quote
Purdue: hope you're glad with your only Big Ten win this year.     
Is Indiana State in the Big Ten? Because Purdue beat them too.

Quote
Brace ourselves boys. Purdue is about to beat us.     


Quote
It's thoughts like this that make me wonder how many people actually paid attention to this program in the years before. Dr. Tom would be face palming right now if he bothered to read people saying the team is "unlucky".

You make your "luck" in the 59 minutes before the end by making smart decisions, executing, and not giving opportunities to the other team for them to come back or for officials to take it out of your hands with bad calls--something that our current staff has yet to figure out.

This was the philosophy behind how Dr. Tom coached...but I guess folks don't care about winning ways anymore...     


Quote
Purdue is leading us after one quarter. Is this real life?     


Quote
Well you guys, Eichorst was correct: we are definitely not Iowa. Not. Even. Close.     


Quote
This is quickly feeling like Iowa State 2009.     



Then they just kinda blamed the ESPNU film crew for a while for being bad :confused: and got back to business. Sorry you're on ESPNU at 11 am you guys. :frown:


Quote
Every time I hear Sharpe say "Pass is..." when Nebraska is on defense, I wonder how long it'll take before he says "...caught."     
That's because Greg is #1cat

Quote
Hahaha they called us blackshirts

This is flat out embarrassing.     


Quote
Mike Riley is such a nice guy, he makes teams like illinois and purdue feel good about themselves.
 
Noble Peace Prize by chance?     


Quote
Looks like we're going to be Purdue's 3rd win over an FBS school in 3 years.     


Quote
Wow, 4 defenders and the guy still gets the catch.  Our secondary blows goats.  They make me want to punch babies and kick puppies.     
That is just out of control, sir.  :blindfold:

Quote
"Well at least the Huskers came out in red pants today!"
From the looks of our play I'd say it's our time of the month.     


Quote
How many penalties can we get on ST today??? Nice job by the coach....just a damn joke with no discipline!     


Quote
Fire everyone. Get rid of the football program     


Quote
Rats!

Getting manhandled by Purdue. I've seen it all.     

By 11:42, this had happened. Not sure how far into the actual game it was.

3rd time we're offsides for a PAT

You know, since Riley was hired I was a firm believer that the Jekyll & Hyde BS was going to end and that has not been the case this season.     

This was at 11:52, not even an hour after kickoff. No idea on the score, as I didn't watch the game and no one seems to be posting that.
Quote
We need to just forfeit the rest of the season at this point. Shut it down, disconnect the batteries, and retool for next year with a new coaching staff. It wouldn't shock me if Riley & Co. just took a knee at this point and resigned. Even they know they're not getting it done.

Purdue acting like world beaters. The culture has definitely been changed this season by Riley. Juice boxes at half?     
Guys I don't think they're gonna give Riley the time he needs to flush Bo's rage culture out of Nebraska and get his own guys into the system.

Quote
There is no question Nebraska has been bit mightily by the injury bug this year...
 
However, there is ZERO EXCUSE for the way this team has performed as a whole this year. Simply, we are a VERY POORLY coached football team.
 
 
Again, Nebraska's first season was in 1890. In our entire history we have never had 6 losses before November.
 
 
If Riley loses today, we should let him finish out the season, but then an entire coaching change must be made for the betterment of the entire program.

Anyone who can defend Riley after this seriously needs his head examined. This is downright awful. Does the guy have any pride or integrity at all? If I performed that poorly at work I'd admit I suck and resign so that they could find someone better for the job.

At this point, I'd take the 2007 offense and defense over Riley's. No way we finish 5-7. We're going to get beat by at least 3-4 scores today, curb stomped at home next week, beat on the road vs. Rutgers and curb stomped at home vs. Iowa. This is the reality.

guys, if we lose today we'll be last in the Big Ten West. LAST.

If we lose today...IF....
 
I guarantee you the boosters will start getting involved. This would be an absolutely historical loss for the program today.
 
The boosters would have no choice but to get involved, and because of this Eichorst will have no choice but to safe face and fire this coaching staff at the end of year, and start over.     


Quote
I think Riley after the last press conference where he looked like he was about to cry is finally noticing he is way in over his head.  He seems like a coach that would resign after a season if he was this bad but who knows.  I hope he does decide he's not the man and step down because it's only going to get worse for this "nice" guy here in Nebraska.  This is simply unacceptable.

Don't worry guys, we will make an adjustment at the half so we only lose by a few points. #closelossesbetterthanwins

Show me one person, just ONE, who picked us to lose to Purdue before the beginning of the season. Most predicted a winning record; many predicted double-digit wins and an appearance in the CCG. This is an embarrassment, a mockery, a disgrace. There's no other way to put it.

Glad we don't review that 3rd and 6 QB draw that gave them the first down. He was half a yard short. Instead they shove it down our throats for a TD.

And the nail is in the coffin. I'm out. This is garbage effort from a garbage team coached by garbage coaches. Eichorst should be run out of Lincoln by sun down tonight. Time for a complete purge of Husker football.   


Quote
The accessment was that we had as much talent as any team in the West Division.  I never heard anyone say we were close to National Champ talent level.  West Div, talent folks does not translate to talent.  Were talking about the  worst division in college football, we should have equal or more talent to them.
 
Its not all coaching people.  Coaching is some of the issue, but the players don't even have enough pride to play for themselves.  Thats just what kind of players that were recruited, same players who finished last year 4-4 and started this season 3-5/6.
 
No talent.  No depth.  No coaching.  No heart.  No support from the fan base right now.  Something has to be done.  Either bench entire team and play walk ons or at least Nebraska grown products with pride in the team/program.     


Quote
Getting blown out by Purdue is telling of our football state after firing winning coaches and hiring the likes of Callahan and Riley.  I don't see how our recruiting will get better after this season's debacle.  This is really depressing.     


Quote
Never felt so sick to my stomach about my team playing football     


Quote
Face the music.  We need a coach who knows the tradition.  Respects the tradition.  I am afraid that only person who can change this is Frost, but he can't do it alone.  Better bring in Turner Gill, Rathman, Fryar and ETC and rebuild the image first, then the program as a whole.
 
Barney Cotton at least coached this team to play with pride.  Pride is inner.  This actually bothers me more than the coaching right now.       


Quote
I would like to suggest that to put a good face on this season that we have a bowl game in Memorial Stadium against one of the other Nebraska state colleges.  Maybe we could get a win to end the season??????     


Quote
The only lack of heart I see is here in this chatroom.  Riley may not be Weeb Ewbank, but he has coached well enough to win a lot of games this year that turned into L's based on some last second fluke plays and bad luck.
 
When nebraska comes back to win this game today you guys should feel awfully embarrassed.     


Quote
Its humiliating to be kicked around by the worst team in the division but then wait- we are the worst team in the division!   You can't live this one down.  I cannot see that we will win another game this year.  I also don't see Purdue doing much better.       



This was when Nebraska mounted what ultimately amounted to a too little too late type of comeback.

This is the worst coached team I have ever seen.   Anyone defending this coach needs to go hide in a hole.  We may not have any super stars this year, but for sh#ts sake, this coach is making damn sure there are no stars on this team.   To you people blaming depth, any time you have the threat of firing a coach like we have for the last few years it hurts recruiting, and now when you hire a coach that is short on marbles you get the crap fest we get to watch now.     


Quote
I want to see what MR has to say in the press conference. Will he cry?     


Quote
Could it be any worse than this ????  Hell YES, they just scored again after their stupid fourth down pass call.  The Huskers are no longer the Huskers.  This crappy play is not worthy of a good high school team.     


Quote
-Lost first opener in 29 seasons
-Got blown out by Miami (Lets not pretend that game was as close as the score indicated)
-Lost to interim HC Bill Cubit and Illinois
-Lost to Wisconsin at Home
-Lost to Northwestern at Home
-Losing to 1-6 Purdue on the road
 
On track to miss a bowl game.  On track to go win-less at home in conference play.  On track to finish dead last in our division.  On track to finish dead last in Pass Defense.  On track to have our worst season since what the 50's.
 
Defend this shitshow all you want, we all know what the situation is.

Huge props to the management of the Big 10. They assimilated a unique property in Nebraska into a sh*tty mid level Big 10 team in less than 5 years while reaping the profits off their name brand 90s success for their network.

Old powers Ohio State and Michigan than use the money to hire big name coaches and insure they have very little issue rolling through that mediocre conference every year so that one of them gets in the playoff (most years) for the foreseeable future.
Yeah, it was a really bad decision for them.

There was a lot of "this is on the coaches" vs. "this is on the players back and forth, but I'd say it seemed like nearly everyone wants Riley gona after this year. I just don't think they're gonna give him the 5-7 years that he needs to get his guys in the system and clean up the mess that Bo left.

Let's see:  The whined about everything in the Big 12 even though they were perfectly set up for success.   They did the old double bird el grande with verve and zeal on their way out the door.   The rolled around and bragged about how being in the Big 10 was going to be transformative to their university and it was going to be WAAAAAYY better there then it ever was in the Big 12. 

They've fired two 9 win a year coaches in the past 15 years and now Cornhole football and pretty much Cornhole athletics except for a couple of sports is utterly irrelevant on the national stage and one of their major sports has never been relevant in the region, in the conference or ever on the national stage.

Yeah, I don't even hate Nebraska anymore. I never see or hear anything about them. When they were in the conference, we used to get stories about them on the local news or interviews on sports radio. Since they left, it's like they just dropped off the face of the earth. Now, I can read a post like SB's and laugh at/feel bad for them for a moment, then I go back to worrying about our own dumpster fire. It's too bad. They used to be one of the kings of the sport.

Losing that streak would be pretty massive.  I work with a guy that is a member of the Nebraska Coaches' Association (or something along those lines).  He pays about a $10 membership per year, and then buys game tickets for the family for a crappy OOC game or two a year at $1 per ticket.  If you can't move $1 tickets in Nubbyland, how bad must the disenchantment be?

Yup. Receiver was out of bounds and came back in to make a big time game changing catch. The rub is that he didn't try to come back in bounds right away. He took four long strides before coming back in and therefore should have been counted as ineligible.

Sometimes there are different ways to be relevant. 

From "Blood in the Fields"

A few young men were kickin’ it outside a video store, dressed in red shirts and belts, one in a Nebraska Cornhuskers cap. The guy wasn’t wearing that hat because he supported a midwestern football team. It was the red that mattered, and with the white capital N in front, you’d think this apparel was custom-made for Norteño gangbangers. I wondered if the sports apparel vendors understood or even cared why Northern California had this surprising epidemic of Cornhuskers fever.

Coroner: Ex-NFL RB Lawrence Phillips committed suicide in cell

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- A California coroner said imprisoned former NFL running back Lawrence Phillips had a note that read "Do Not Resuscitate" taped to his chest when he was found hanging in his cell.

The autopsy report released Wednesday indicated that a Kern County deputy coroner found another note and a picture of Phillips and an unnamed child tucked into Phillips' left sock.

The coroner ruled that the 40-year-old Phillips committed suicide in Kern Valley State Prison in January. He was awaiting a trial that could have brought him the death penalty.

Phillips was charged with killing a former cellmate, 37-year-old Damion Soward, the cousin of former USC and NFL wide receiver R. Jay Soward.

The coroner provided the report to The Associated Press under a public records request.

I'm guessing this is the story he posted. Read about it this morning.

Quote
I have still been referred to on Facebook and Twitter as a clueless confused n---er, by former high school classmates, friends peers and even Husker fans. Some believe DaiShon (Neal), Mohamed (Barry) and myself should be kicked off the team or suspended, while some said we deserved to be lynched or shot just like the other black people that have died recently. Another believed that since we didn’t want to stand for the anthem we should be hung before the anthem for the next game.

These are actual statements we received from fans.

People assume this is just internet talk, but I can tell you from my own experience, at this very institution, and visiting other college campuses within he past few years that racism is still a problem that must be addressed. I can’t tell you the numerous amount of times I’ve heard the n-word being shouted to my teammates and I by opposing fans behind our bench.

Looking at MIR's link it looks like the BOR is stepping in which I wasn't aware of before.
Title: Re: Nebraska's struggle for relevance.
Post by: pissclams on September 27, 2016, 06:19:21 PM
The three players who chose to kneel during the national anthem ahead of last Saturday’s Husker football game demonstrated “poor judgment” and offensive behavior, one member of the University of Nebraska Board of Regents said.

Regent Hal Daub of Omaha, who served two years in Korea during the Vietnam War-era, and a former Omaha mayor, said in an interview that student-athletes at NU “are not supposed to do things that create disparagement or negative implications.”

“It’s a free country,” Daub told the Journal Star on Tuesday. “They don’t have to play football for the university either.

"They know better, and they had better be kicked off the team," he added. "They won’t take the risk to exhibit their free speech in a way that places their circumstance in jeopardy, so let them get out of uniform and do their protesting on somebody else’s nickel."

Daub continued: “Those publicity seeking athletes ought to rethink the forum in which they chose to issue their personal views at the expense of everyone else."

Huskers Michael Rose-Ivey, DaiShon Neal and Mohamed Barry elected to kneel during the national anthem on Saturday, a form of peaceful protest started by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in August.

Opinions have been expressed from many corners, including Gov. Pete Ricketts, who during his statewide radio call-in show told a caller that the anthem protest was "disgraceful and disrespectful" to men and women who have sacrificed for the country, but that he "respect(s) the right of those players to protest."

During that radio show, a caller suggested the players involved should lose their scholarships. "Kick them off campus," the caller said.

Daub said he's heard similar comments from constituents.

“My phone and email inbox are full of highly critical commentary," he said. "I find their copycat conduct -- which is what I call it -- offensive. I’m personally offended.”

Another regent, Rob Schafer of Beatrice, said as a current lieutenant colonel in the Nebraska Air National Guard with more than 31 years of military experience, he is “honored and privileged to be able to protect the very freedoms that these Nebraska football players have chosen to exercise.”

But, in a statement to the Journal Star on Monday night, Schafer said, “University of Nebraska athletics is a unifying source of pride for our state that should not be used as a forum for political or social debate."

“I do not support the venue these student-athletes chose to express their political or social viewpoint.”

Husker athletes have “a tremendous opportunity and responsibility” to represent the university both on and off the playing field, he added, and if compelled to express a political or social viewpoint, Schafer said he encourages them to find a venue outside of the team to do so.

Regent Jim Pillen of Columbus agreed with Schafer, saying while he supports the student-athletes' cause and encourages all students to become engaged in issues locally as well as globally, he questions using the team as a platform of protest.

"I believe in team above everything," Pillen said. "I don't think any of those student-athletes would want me to represent them on the Board of Regents if I took my personal agenda to the table."

On Monday, Rose-Ivey spoke at a team news conference about the decision to kneel ahead of the game on Saturday at Northwestern University, saying he and his teammates chose to pray for their country while the national anthem was performed.

The Husker linebacker from Kansas City, Missouri, said the decision to kneel was to bring attention to the “policies and laws that discriminate and hinder the growth and opportunity of people of color, low income people, women and other marginalized communities.”

“To make it clear, I am not anti-police, I’m not anti-military, nor am I anti-American,” he added. “I love my country deeply.”

Rose-Ivey said he chose to kneel to "make the world a better place for the next generation."

Daub, who spoke by phone Tuesday, indicated he has spoken with university leaders on the matter, but did not indicate with whom he has spoken or the nature of the conversation, saying only: “Time will tell.”

"I am going to be wary of their future conduct," he said.

Asked if the university runs the risk of violating the student-athlete's rights guaranteed by the First Amendment if any rules are enacted, Daub reiterated that Husker athletes should not express political opinions while in uniform.

"Anything you do with respect to the First Amendment, you run a risk," Daub said. "Right or wrong, you can hide behind the First Amendment all day long."

A longstanding policy of the Board of Regents that has existed for a half century addresses demonstrations, stating: "The public exploration and resolution of differing views can be successful only when groups and individuals discuss the issues in forms where the right to disagree, speak freely, and be heard is preserved."

"Within this context, the University community recognizes peaceful demonstrations as a legitimate means of expressing one's opinion."

In his statement, Schafer referred to comments made by former President George W. Bush last weekend at the opening of the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C., who said “the journey toward justice is still not complete.”

“Many African-Americans believe the justice system is tilted against them, and too many Americans of every skin color are victims of violence,” Schafer said. “These are real issues that cannot be ignored and should be addressed through conversations and positive actions in our homes, in our schools, in our communities, and across our states and nation.

“A starting point is to initiate dialogues regarding our differences and to instill in our young people respect for all life.”

Pillen said he doesn't support penalizing players or any university employees over the actions during last Saturday's game.

"I support these kids for having beliefs and convictions and I admire they have the courage to stand up for what they believe in," he said. "I'm just not a supporter of the venue."

UNL last year began addressing several issues surrounding diversity training for students, faculty and staff, and Chancellor Ronnie Green said at his state of the university address last week that early next year the university will take part in a “diversity mapping” led by a consulting firm.

Green declined to address the matter Monday, communications director Theresa Paulsen said, but did support the athletics staff.

NU President Hank Bounds, himself a former National Guardsman of the Year in Mississippi, said on Tuesday the idea of academic freedom at a university extends to the playing field as well.

The university would not stop students who pause to pray before the game or after a big play, he said. Nor would student-athletes be stopped from sharing a controversial opinion in class.

"I have a deep love of this country and a love of the flag, and I certainly recognize freedom isn't free," he said. "Nebraskans have expressed their opinions on the actions -- some were supportive, some disagree and some passionately disagree."

Since Saturday, Bounds said he has received no more than 10 emails about Rose-Ivey and others' actions. He said he has spoken with Green about the issue and had a short conversation with Athletic Director Shawn Eichorst.

Bounds said he "completely opposes" imposing any actions against the players or changing any policies that would restrict their ability to express themselves.

"They are all free to state their opinion and that's what is really great about living in the greatest country in the world. The same freedoms that protect our speech protect students' speech."

I'm not clicking that article so it might say this, but even with the state of their program last fall, they still had the second biggest spring game attendance last year, only behind Ohio State.

There's a chance that the recently schedule 10/27 Bethune-Cookman matchup will be their only shot a victory this year.  However, Bethune-Cookman is FCS, so it would seem that there is a legit chance that Nebraska has zero FBS victories this year. 

Heck, I think we could beat them.

They lost at home to Purdue (absolutely awful team) by two touchdowns, and that’s AFTER a comeback at the end, apparently. Will Scott Frost be the first person in CFB history to take one team from undefeated national champs one year to having a team of winless losers the next year?

Officiating bias against Frost?

I recall that newbie Nebraska came into the Big Ten favored to challenge for the Big Title in its 1st year joining the league. If you think that caused resentment among the other Big Ten teams, I suspect you’re correct. If you think that caused bias against Nebraska, I suspect you’re correct.   

 

Move forward to 2018. The new head coach for Nebraska just won several coach-of-the-year honors for the 2017 season, lead UCF to a major bowl win over Auburn and declared that UCF deserved to be crowned National Champion. He had a compelling argument since UCF beat Auburn, who had beaten Alabama and Georgia, the two teams that played for the official National Championship. If you think the UCF coach’s statements caused some resentment and bias against him, and some angst among the official National Championship folks, I suspect you’re correct.

 

Harken back to the post-1997 season when the Nebraska QB lead his team to victory over Tennessee in the bowl game to win the National Championship. Clearly, Nebraska throttled and dominated Tennessee in that championship game. In contrast, Michigan, who shared the National Championship that year with Nebraska, barely defeated a very marginal Washington State in less-than-impressive fashion. Subsequent to that win, the Nebraska QB declared his position that Nebraska deserved to be awarded the National Championship. That declaration by the Nebraska QB, and subsequent share of the National Championship caused significant resentment in the Big Ten, and continues to cause resentment among the Michigan faithful. To this day, Michigan maintains that they were robbed of a consensus 1997 National Championship due to the Nebraska QB’s statements.       

 

So for 2018, Scott Frost, that 1997 National Championship Nebraska QB and 2017 highly-honored deserved National Championship UCF coach, returned to Nebraska, obviously now in the Big Ten. Based on some one-sided officiating seen this year against Nebraska, one has to ask if others set out to ensure a disappointing season in Scott Frost’s Big Ten inaugural season.

Based on some one-sided officiating seen this year against Nebraska, one has to ask if others set out to ensure a disappointing season in Scott Frost’s Big Ten inaugural season.


yes pls, I'll have more of this :drool:

I don't know that Nebraska is significantly better than Minnesota if at all. I watched the entire second half and there was some belief for a while that they were going to come back, those Nebraska fans were getting tight.

I knew when PJ took that job, it was curtains for him, that place is football purgatory. He'll probably end up right back at Western, they're crap too.

Not sure if anyone watched their game on Saturday. I couldn't stand to have it on the TV since Beth Mowins was doing the play by play. However, their offence was only able to muster 2 touchdowns and 276 total yards against South Alabama. Had the Jaguars not handed the Huskers 14 points on what ended up being 5 turnovers (one in desperation/end of game time), this game would have had a different outcome.

Again, realizing that it's just one game, but Nubs offensive woes look like they're back for another season.

Losing at home to Indiana is a bad loss but they still have a good shot at 6-6.  If he can’t win 7 or more next year it will get ugly though.  He’s recruiting at a high level but probably is going to have to fire his d coordinator he brought from UCF this off season. I’d love for them to implode because they are a huge problem for us on the recruiting trail I just don’t think they are going to.

Academically used barely squeezed into the conference. I actually think they made a few exceptions. We obviously didn’t want you for your football team so I’d start concentrating on academics or you may not have a choice and be booted. I highly doubt Texas and the big 12 will let you back in but maybe the Mac or mountain west would be an option? Plus those two conferences you’d have a great opportunity to win consistently which is what matters to most fans on this board.

To be fair to us, LHC Bill Snyder didn't really put much effort into recruiting and there was and still is a lot of uncertainty as to what kind of a program Klieman will run. I expect recruiting to improve if we keep winning.

their fans cared about beating Texas, Texas beat them every time.  Pelini wasn't winning a natty there, that's all their fans care about.  he would have eventually been fired, maybe they hire someone other than mike riley, but whoever they would have gotten it wouldn't have been good enough, and i think you always end up where they are at.  no way of knowing obvs, but all the schools in the big 12 that were here when Nebraska was still around, all have better facilities and care more about football now, and are for the most part more competitive than the Purdues and Indianas.

Slightly better in football (they had a good year in 2007).  They have not been meeting expectations over the last couple of years, though.  Also, they nose-dived the basketball program (to comply with SEC standards I assume).

Sounds like he just didn't have it in him to be the head man any longer. He was having success at So. Miss. Improved them year over year his entire tenure. Still didn't make it to the dance tho. He did have a new AD coming in.

Heck, we ought to be able to be at least as good in the Big Ten as Iowa. Minnesota got things turned around this year. We're not asking for national championships-right now we ought to be at the very least able to make bowl games every year. We're not even doing that. I will not excuse the horrible coaching by blaming the conference.


Why should we be? Because Bob Devaney coached us in the 60’s? Because TO was probably the greatest coach in CFB history? Because we spend a lot of money? Take out our history which was due to 1 or two guys and what do we have left? We have a program that is in a horrible geographic footprint with a fan base that expects every coach to live up to the expectations of what the best coach in CFB history did here.

I would love it if Nebraska could compete for conference and national titles, but the fact is we are behind every single Big Ten West program outside of Illinois right now. We are the 6th best program in the Big Ten West. Firing coaches isn’t going to change that overnight, our last 4 coaching searches have produced Frank who did pretty damn well, but he rebounded at Ohio. Callahan who went back to the NFL as a position coach, Pelini who didn’t even have a FBS level offer and now Scott who appears probably wasn’t quite ready. He’s in year 4 as a head coach and has had 1 winning season, maybe it was a fluke. I think it’s time to realize we aren’t better than Iowa or Wisconsin, we are level with Purdue, Northwestern and Illinois right now probably. Minnesota is a year ahead of us, Iowa is years ahead of us and Wisconsin may be a decade ahead of us.

No, but he coached in the Big 12 with 8 game conference seasons. The Big Ten made us rich, but it is also notorious for creating abysmal football programs while having 2 or 3 relevant teams.

Such a bad take. The big 10 is one of the deepest leagues for talented balance. In fact, there are currently 6 big 10 teams in the Top 20.
Until the NE fans and their football program start respecting the Conference they belong to now, rather than making excuses and whining for the good old days of the Big 8/12, the sooner they might actually start having success. NE came into the big 10 expecting to just dominate, without ever bothering to adapt to the big 10 style, which requires great OL and DL’s. They have all but ignored this part of their squad over the years, instead mainly focusing on skill positions. PSU joined our conference, didn’t act like an entitled program, adapted and found a way to thrive.
Maybe this season is the first step in humility for your program that allows you to quit living in the past, focus on the future and rebuild your program the right way.

It's dead. Too many recruiting challenges, in the social media era, there are WAY too many options for kids going to so many other schools. Parity. System challenges, but mostly numbers of players and population in Nebraska make it impossible.

Frost needed to splash right away and bring in some studs, build a culture, build the brand back up but QUICKLY.

Our hope was a turnaround and return to relevance to overcome the inherent recruiting challenges and population/lack of players in an age of parity and competition. TO had it made once he built what he had. No longer.

We're dead. Dead Big Red. We had our moments, at least.

Basically, now that we aren't able to game the system to our advantage we'll probably suck forever. Ah reality.

Frost is of Nebraska more than he is from Nebraska, as though the land and the cornfields and maybe even the Runzas, those strange sandwiches native to this region, course through his bloodstream. (At one point, a Nebraska assistant coach finishes his lunch at the athletic complex's training table, then whispers his confession like it's a sin. "Runza," he starts, then shakes his head. He can't bring himself to go on because it's sacrilege around here. He's just not a fan of Runza, the 70-year-old purveyor of ground beef, onions and cabbage stuffed into a bread pocket. It's fast food that Nebraskans at home and Nebraskans displaced evangelize like it's manna.)

He doesn't mention Lawrence Phillips by name, but he doesn't need to. In 1995, Phillips, who was the Huskers' star running back, was arrested on assault charges and accused of throwing his ex-girlfriend to the bathroom floor, then dragging her down three flights of stairs. Although Osborne initially dismissed Phillips from the team, he was reinstated after a six-game suspension, then played out the 1995 season, including the victorious championship game. (It was Frost's apartment that Phillips allegedly broke into to get to his ex-girlfriend.)

Why didn't they mention that it was Scott Frost's apartment he broke into to assault his ex gf and that Frost watched the whole thing without trying to stop him?

Quote
Hours after the team returned from East Lansing on September 10, 1995, Phillips broke into backup quarterback Scott Frost's apartment by climbing the outside of the building to the third floor and entering through some sliding doors. He then assaulted his ex-girlfriend, basketball player Kate McEwen. Phillips dragged McEwen out of the apartment by the hair and down three flights of stairs before smashing her head into a mailbox. Phillips was subsequently arrested, and eventually suspended by head coach Tom Osborne. The case became a source of controversy and media attention, with the perception that Frost had not even tried to protect McEwen and that Osborne was coddling a star player by not kicking Phillips off the team permanently. Osborne walked out on a press conference when asked, "If one of your players had roughed up a member of your family and had dragged her down a flight of steps, would you have reinstated that player to the team?"[8] Outraged Nebraska faculty proposed that any student convicted of a violent crime be prohibited from representing the university on the football field.[9] Osborne defended the decision, saying that abandoning Phillips might do more harm than good, stating the best way to help Phillips was within the structured environment of the football program. Osborne stated, "I felt the only thing I could put in a place that would keep him on track was football, because that was probably the only consistent organizing factor in his life."[10] After a six-game suspension, Osborne reinstated Phillips for the Iowa State game,[11] although touted freshman Ahman Green continued to start. Phillips also played against Kansas and Oklahoma.

You have to love the writers always talk about the loopholes and advantages nubb used to have over most of the Big 8/college football and then mourn them.

Like Prop 48, over-recruiting (I think), taking advantage of being a marquee name when visibility was hard to come by for other teams in the plains/Midwest footprint; even weight training and facilities.

It’s like, “Well if big red could just use their big name to stockpile all the recruits, get guys in that cant go other places, have our guys lift weights when no one else does, then pump our guys full of steroids when other teams start lifting — and turn a blind eye when our dudes roid rage on people then we’d be back in no time.”

Probably not...and if he doesn't win a natty at corn aggie than he is just another former corn aggie player selling home/life/auto insurance in Omaha.

As cowardly as his decision was it was probably the correct one for his career.

No bowl game.

Unfortunately, they're not quite dead yet. There are three bowl slots left and 8 teams still trying to get bowl eligible. Army has to beat Hawaii and Navy, they're out, so that's 7 for 3 spots.

Boston College has to beat Pitt. Boston College is also the only team ahead of Nebraska in the apr rating for potential 5 win teams.

Oregon State has to beat Oregon

Colorado has to beat Utah

UL Monroe has to beat Louisiana

Liberty has to beat New Mexico State

North Carolina has to beat NCSU

Michigan State has to beat Maryland

The first four teams have no chance. If all four of those teams lose, two of the other three would have to win to keep Nebraska home again. The last time they made a bowl they were one of those apr charity cases.

Cross post. Good/bad to see my point about sexual and racial harassment actually applied in one fell swoop.

When she appealed the finding, she said then-Nebraska Title IX Coordinator Tamiko Strickman told her that race discrimination claims "will never be fully investigated [by IEC] because students on campus have a right to free speech."

I guess I should give up on white people actually caring about white supremacy.

That's a weird thing for the title ix director to say. I'm curious what the racial discrimination was then because the article makes it seem like it was specifically and repeatedly directed at the student and I can't think of how that would not be investigated.

she never would have said that. I'm sure there were some things said about free speech on campus (turningpoint downgrades caused a shitload of issues on campus years ago that are still reverberating) and a lot of that discussion occurred. but the way it's presented never happened.

I think she did, but not in the context in which some are taking it. She was the title IX director, claims of potential racial discrimination are out of her perview. I took her saying that as less "I can't do anything to help you" and more "they won't do crap about that."

Because there's no defined protection for this. It's protected by the first amendment, that's what you've been saying for weeks. If this woman was walking to class and every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday this other student was in the hallway and said "hey coon" to her every damn time, that's protected and should be, that's the argument you have made. This is a university official affirming that speech is protected.

Harassment is harassment, regardless of if it's "hey coon", "hey fattie", "hey towelhead", or whatever. Applying a racial component does not negate the harassment. I honestly have no idea how you came to think that's my belief.

All rough ridin' with Nebraska aside, the reason why that source is full of crap is exactly why we only have 10 teams in the conference now. Nebraska, nor anyone else, will be welcomed with open arms into this conference unless they are someone who will convince ESPN and Fox to give the conference $30 million more dollars a year. These schools aren't going to give Nebraska a cut of their money because of some nostalgia. Really the thought is really rough ridin' absurd and makes me question who Dodd's source is and what he tried to do with that tweet. There's no one even affiliated with the conference that would care since Nebraska left, Jamie Pollard, Mike Holder, Mike Gundy, and Kirby Hocutt are the only UPs, ADs, or head coach with any relevant tie to the old big 12.

Do you think the conference would be in a better or worse position to negotiate TV deals if Nebraska was back in the BigXII?

If they were to come back, the conference would be stronger and stand to generate more revenue because ESPN and Fox know that Nubs vs OU, UT, and even KSU will generate more TV dollars than Nubs vs Northwestern, Rutgers, or Maryland. If you kick the trash in Waco to the curb and bring them in, you get those old Big8 match ups every year instead of the few marque games happening once every other year in the big 10.

I don't think it'll happen, but everyone would be better off if they came back instead of staying put.

Being a Kstate fan I agree with this 100%. They beat up on Kstate and the other Big8 schools (minus OU) for 60+ years, just pummeling our faces in while smiling about what great fans they are. When Kstate finally started beating NU consistently (5-2 from 98-04) they couldn't take it and fired Solich which started their downward spiral to where they are now. Then they left us and their 100+ year history with the Big8 schools to prove they were still relevant.

I would have loved nothing more than to have spent the last 10 years jumping up and down on their dying corpse as corn kernels shot from their mouth like BB's.

I want them back in the Big12 for that reason alone, to kick them while they are down until there is no more leather left on my shoes.

Do I think that Nebraska would result in the conference getting an additional $30 million per year in revenue, no I don't. Not anymore than anyone else in the Big 10 west, except maybe Wisconsin. They have a great combination of football relevance and television subscribers.

100%, they proved to be the baby backed bitches they have always been. Prima donnas. They think the world revolves around their has been football program and get incensed any time things don't go their way.

Maybe they should try and be ND and just go Independent.

Heard Facebook rumors that the Nubs will use their lawsuit winnings to bribe the Big XII to let them back in; since they will be the black sheep of the Big Ten.

Miller Park has a retractable roof, so that makes 4.   

Can't think of a 5th.

Miller Park can only be heated/cooled +/- 30 degrees of outside temp, and you know it'll be like 10 degrees outside in Milwaukee in February.

Everytime I see Havs post, I think of the '09 Nebraska-Iowa State game.  That is just about my favorite non-KSU game ever.

Really? Is this standard for retractable roof stadiums or did Milwaukee buy theirs from Aldi?

Fatty's second best video. Literally the only thing missing was knoxy and bo acting like a jackass on the sidelines, paul was nice enough to give us a bit of his sideline jackassery. How did flood aggie only score 9 points?

Not sure. I just remember an April night game with outside temperatures in the 20s and the inside temp in Miller Park was like 50.

We didn't score a lot of points ever... but Arnaud and Robinson were out and Nebraska's defense was pretty good that year. One fluke Hail Mary was the only real offense they had the entire game.

Completely forgot the 9 was a fluke touchdown, missed XP, and a field goal.

I liked the OL yelling at the RB who had just fumbled. I also liked the 3 dudes wearing the same giant shirt because I imagine them having to dejectedly walk home dressed like that after the game.

Yes Havs.   I'm in lockstep with my BFF @MakeItRain.   I don't care if CornHole defense was good, and you had two guys out.  If K-State ever gets 8 TO's in a game and only scores 9, I want the entire offensive staff fired unless it's in the National Championship game against an LSU-Clemson-Bama all-star team and K-State wins.

No, this is worse than that. The Big 10 really should just kick them out.

Please don’t drink the Wefald KoolAid.  Just beyond dumb.

The Big 8 kicking Kstate out is a total myth and a Wefaldian Tall Tale.

I love it. They spent half a century being top dog in the Big 8, cried when Texas schools came and they weren't king crap anymore, went to the B10 and are now crying because they are an also ran in the conference pecking order.

Might as well just quit, join the mtn west, where they can be big daddy again.

id still take them back in a heartbeat
