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.
Didn't he actually quit southern miss voluntarily?

IMO that makes it weirder

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.

Edit: Mods plz move this recent convo to the Doc Sadler thread.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

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.

Man, Iowa fans laying down the truth.

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.

I'm four pages in. Thread started strong with some great self-loathing Husker posts, a couple of which were posted here. Then some Iowa fans and a Purdue fan entered with some reasonable posts and a bit of reality smack. The weirdo Floodaggies started pouring in with some pretty cringeworthy driviling, and Nubbs rightly lol'd at their efforts. ISU fans... so weird. Thread getting more brown by the post now.

This is a pretty good one on page 4.

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.

Dont forget the PedoState fan ranting about how they did nothing wrong and no one knew sandusky was a predator.
