    I hope the next position Diaco applies for takes measurables into account above all else.

    Diaco should never get a job in football ever again. That guy is from outer space.

    I had a conversation with Diaco one time and he mentioned how good of a LB Teo was, he also said that he met Teo"s girlfriend and she was a sweet gal.RollingLaugh

    One thing you should never do in management is hire someone who could potentially steal your managing power or undermine your credibility, and that's exactly what Riley did with our former DC (let's try to never use his name on this board again). Bring back our roots, Scott!

    No, Mike Riley wanted to but was overruled by Billy Devaney and Bob Diaco

    You know I get tired of this crap that tries to cleanse MR of stuff. Reilly is the head coach. Billy D and Diaco can't veto. If they can than MR was much more incompetent than we all thought.

    I agree to a point but if the defensive coordinator, who was the one to have to coach this kid, didn’t want him, why bring him in? Get someone who will fit the D coordinator better I think... please don’t tell me other head coaches throughout America don’t listen to the input of their assistant coaches regarding recruits they want to bring in...

    On the other hand, if Riley really wanted him he should have put his foot down. I can see it both ways.

    [QUOTE="coachDubs, post: 3984886, member: 62585"

    ND fans warned us, Diaco is all about measurables. If you don't have them, he's not interested. And Williams doesn't have the measurables that Diaco was looking for.[/QUOTE]



    Good Gawd, reminds of Callahan. Big bodied receivers, Oline with long arms. Who cares how long your arms are if you have no motor.

    FWIW, Land of 10 reported he told Nebraska he’s still committed to Wisky. Not that I expected him to flip after a couple of days.

    Good thing he didn’t commit to the other recent tormentor and end of season foe. ;)

    Plenty of time to flip this kid. Not surprising he says that at first.

    If he's planning to sign early, we only have 2 weeks to flip him.

    In this case, I'd expect Bryson Williams to stay with UW.
    I think he has no ties to NU, didn't grow up in Nebraska or root for the Huskers.
    However, it's a good move CSF made. This is to win over in-state HS coaches, I think.

    Does anyone know a time or a story in which Riley showed he had a pair? I mean seriously, did he ever show pride or a back bone by saying "I am the F-ing coach and I get final say"? IMO he's the classic "nice guys finish last" loser. How can the guy ever find success in life when he allows so many people to walk over him.

    And I am being serious, does anyone know of any time he used executive order? Cause I have about a hundred stories of him being a pushed around by subordinates.

    People like him can't be leaders.

    He did with Speilman. Riley was the one that fought for him.

    he will be a Husker. Wisconsin now wants him to play O-line and he does not want to do that. Nebraska has told him they want him on defense. Expect a flip within 5 days.

    Not to nitpick, but it has nothing to do with the hiring process. Any manager or leader should have the sack to tell a subordinate F' no, I am making the call. If he doesn't have the nads to do that HE should be fired. Or in this case, he was fired.

    Where do you get that any one was cleansing MR of stuff from that? It was a statement of a fact, and incidentally was specifically one of the multitude of things that they were saying was dysfunctional about the MR regime. they weren't giving him a pass, they were saying his lack of taking charge of his program was part of the problem.
