    When does Billy Devaney get canned? Same day as Mike?

    300k last year. I don't know if he got a bump this year.

    Nebraska had the 5th most wins of all schools...

    5th most wins of any college program during their tenures is not suckage...but keep telling yourself that.

    When does Billy Devaney get canned? Same day as Mike?

    How come no one knows what Devaney's real role is/was. I assume that in college the head coach calls the shots...especially one that has as much experience as Riley. The idea that Riley would come here and be told who would be hired and fired as his assistants doesn't seem credible. I could...

    Nebraska had the 5th most wins of all schools...

    No...it's simply saying that this situation does not compare to Solich and Pelini. We won a lot of games during their tenures...the 5th most games of any school. We did not win championships...that is true. But you are more likely to win championships with guys who actually win games than...

    Tanner in Concussion Protocol

    I was madder after that game than any other I can remember. Callahan conceded that game from the opening kickoff. He installed the WCO and that game he threw the ball 13 times. We ran 53 total plays. It was anathema to everything that sports should be about.

    Apologies and crow eating time..

    Of course every poster didn't comment. That would be one long thread! But the tenor of the board was not to talk about those things mentioned above positively. Maybe others believed it but didn't want to mention things like Osborne or run the ball or walk-ons or Riley's struggles because...

    When does Billy Devaney get canned? Same day as Mike?

    Why the position? Take the money and give to assistants...especially since we are adding one more.

    Realistically, how good is our talent level for the new coach?

    With coaching we are way better than 3-3 against the west. I don't think 5-1 would be crazy talk.

    When does Billy Devaney get canned? Same day as Mike?

    What has he been doing for the last month to earn any kind of paycheck? I'm surprised his wiki page states the following: "He soon went onto help ruin said football program similiar to what he did in St Louis. He tried to impose his will and soon turned the program upside down. [6]"

    Apologies and crow eating time..

    It has become middle of the road over the last month or so. Before that any mention of running the ball, Tom Osborne, walk-ons, tradition, and sell-out streak was met with full-force derision.

    Realistically, how good is our talent level for the new coach?

    That's crazy. We have outrecruited ever team in the West every year since we have joined the Big Ten. You can make your argument in regards to OSU, Michigan, and PSU. However beyond that, this talent argument is lame.

    Bo Pelini must be

    Pelini tried to tell us about SE. Although he was 100% accurate, he was the wrong guy to voice it. I firmly believe that Bo actually helped entrench SE's support into this year. Shoot, even the money guys on the Regent's board were "allegedly" behind SE as late as last spring. If true, it...

    Tanner in Concussion Protocol

    I was thinking travel squads were in the 50s. I see the Big Ten sets the number at 70. At that number I don't have a problem with it.

    The Medium article that I must have missed

    Plus, Bo's schedules during his tenure were more difficult than either Cally or Riley. He had on average the 29th ranked schedule. Mike has averaged 46th ranked schedule. Cally had the 35th ranked schedule

    The Medium article that I must have missed

    There were times he did not compete, but let's not act like it was all the time. In both Big XII Championships (UT and OU) we could have won. We won our division three times under Bo. He beat ranked opponents 11 times. It wasn't TO standards by any stretch but he beat a lot more ranked teams...

    Speaking of backups, one OWH article showed Gebbia on the sideline with a receiver at Minnesota.. Why is Gebbia on the traveling squad?

    It appears to me that Mike Riley and Eichorst have done something

    I appreciate the OP. No one thinks it was wrong to support the current regime if you had a decent rationale. The issue was always running off people who thought differently and pointed to rational arguments. When some brought up Riley's teams penalties at OSU, they were lambasted because...

    The Medium article that I must have missed

    When someone averages 10 wins a game, who is more likely to break through? That guy or some washed up has-been NFL coach or a career .500 guy?

    Nebraska had the 5th most wins of all schools...

    No matter how you cut it, football is about winning. Over the long haul of their combined tenures being 5th in wins is pretty good. Frank and Bo averaged 9.6 wins per year...only four others averaged more. How you do you fire people who do that?

    Barfy goes full TC

    Canning SE before the Iowa game was dumb. I can't believe Green did that...or so I've been told.
