He went to NU because he knew he could be a lazy piece of crap and still see the field because all of their players suck and are even lazier

I want to say T's&P's for all the mental gymnastics their fans must be doing, but.... screw them. That base deserves this.

Can we officially start dubbing this the Big 12 Departure Curse?  Seems like all teams that left have lost momentum in college athletics.

i don't think this really applies to Mizzou, you can argue they've actually done better in the SEC.  Nebraska is in the exact same position they would be in the Big 12.

I think Nebraska would be recruiting better in the Big 12. It's also possible that Pelini would have beaten a couple of teams their fans actually care about beating and not been fired for winning 9 games every year.

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.

Beating Texas seems pretty easy to me, why did Nebraska never do it?

Nebraska was able to beat us sometimes. Their fans really cared about that, even though they claimed not to.

Nebraska struck fear in the local schools and dominated the landscape in recruiting. iowa, penn st, Michigan state, ohio state, Michigan, Illinois, etc are just as big of schools and have no shared history with them. they don't care about Nebraska. Nebraska is basically Maryland to all of them. pretty lol really.

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).

You do realize we are the only team in the big XII to have a winning record vs Texas.

I know Wooly became AD at one of the California schools in their university system.  Was it UC Riverside?  If so, lol.

I'm sure that this was discussed on the basketball board, but Doc being an assistant at Nebraska is hilarious. Dude that hard up for a job? What an amazing shot to ones ego.
