Not to mention throwing the players under the bus...
At the end of the day, this program can't allow NIU to come into our house, teabag us, and just proceed on as if nothing happened. If Riley didn't want to get canned, he could have started by beating NIU. If you can't accomplish that at Nebraska you're not the right guy for the job.
I would say Riley has been put on notice. The team can either bow up and play for themselves (as opposed to the "greatest fans in college FB"), or lay down. The coaches had best find some things that work.
I disagree that we didn't give them a chance. The team doesn't look better in any area than when he got here. They're 16-13 to this point and will get the opportunity to complete the season. Win out and nobody will be talking changes. Keep losing to the NIU's of the world and you're toast.
Hopefully the team attacks this adversity and the team wins out so we can laugh at the mere mention of a coaching change.
Eichorst was not brought in to fire Pelini. Correct. Eichorst was also not replacing a failed AD. He came into a relatively stable situation and inherited a 9 win football coach. The trouble with Pelini came later.
The fact Eichorst was fired now does seem reactionary. Unless this has been brewing since our football collapse at the end of last season. The OSU, Iowa, and Tennessee games were ugly. So there is a good chance that many big donors already had Riley on the hot seat, with the start to this year the final straw. And Eichorst had to know his ass was in trouble. Hence his impromptu news conference at the end of the game.
But who knows? I just want what is best for Husker football. Maybe you and Truehuskerfan and Archie Graham are right. And I hope Riley can turn this around. I sure like the guy.
But I do know one thing. At Nebraska, you don't lose to NIU at home and then expect for there to be no repercussions. After all, we aren't Iowa
If you expect Riley to be here until the end of 2018...well, let's just say that you're going to be disappointed.
Honestly, I'm not even trying to argue details right now. We cut his bag after 2 1/3 seasons. It's over. We either have to pray that 6-8 million a year could bring in an ace or we are getting a 7-10 year build with a completely inexperienced HC like Frost (...assuming he wants the job).
Why not? Husker power!
Ed Stewart anyone?
Listen I don't know if Frost is the answer but we hired an experienced coach 2 1/3 years ago and look where we are- 16-13, so don't use inexperienced as a reason to not hire. Just get the best
The best aren't coming here because they know they'll get canned for not doing things the Nebraska way.
Hey, if we go out and land Chip Kelly (...or someon of that caliber) I'll go crazy. But we won't. I've already stated I think we are headed back to the past to try and solve the problems of the present.
Also not to mention his mishandling of the basketball programs the last couple years (the Connie Yori scandal, not communicating with Miles and then announcing he's returning via Twitter and not speaking to the media about it for 2 months). They called this guy "The Invisible A.D." at Miami, literally nobody knew who he was, and he gave the coach there a huge extension after a 6-6 season. Barry Alvarez played us big time by telling Harvey to hire him.
Ok. Archie Graham down for we will suck. Wait- what's our record?
You should work on your reading comprehension.
I think the AD hire will have some ties to the past - because they want to ensure the culture issues are fixed and have some one that understands what they are getting into in Lincoln. The coaching hire needs to be somebody good at coaching college football. Does not need to have ties to the Huskers. Chip Kelly - for example - fits that mold. I don't see him taking the job....but it is the right idea.
Best decision you guys did was fire him, best thing you did for us at UM was take him off our hands
If and when Riley gets canned, it will not be because he didn't do things the Nebraska way. It will be because his teams were not good, and were not progressing by any reasonable standard.
It's going to be interesting. I've got some issues with how this has all gone down; however, I also want to win. We will see if the administration is serious about landing a whale for the AD and the HC position. When you cut a coaches bag after 2 1/3 season you'd better be serious about brining in someone big time.
With the timing here, if that individual is not already selected and on the hook, I will be more than dumbfounded.
I think the rationale for firing SE has been mostly clear, but this move doesn't necessarily mean that Riley gets the boot by the new AD. Riley controls his fate and always has.
This needed to be done. This recruiting class wasn't that great and the last few have lost their luster a bit, so firing Mike shouldn't be too hard for the new AD to do.
It has to be 90s era Husker. There is no way they can't do that. If It's not, why even try? They will still have a pissed off fan base demanding the past. His comments today cemented it will be Trev or someone similar.
Riley 'controls his fate' in a vacuum. After today? It's over.
Agree. If we have something in the works the only reasonable hypothesis points to old Huskers.
But it's also possible that those making the decisions are just in a panic and react mode.
I didn't read through all the post but maybe this was mentioned already.
A lot seem to think Riley will be given more time because of this decision. I'm not so sure about that. I mean Eichorst was fired for obviously and mostly football related reasons. If it is about our football program, then Riley might not be here much longer either following this decision.
eh who knows....but I do got the popcorn ready.
Not necessarily. Yes, our former AD's got here and fired the coach. But, it doesn't have to be that way... that's the point I'm making here.
And here is something the "we were once great" crowd doesn't take into consideration.
Shooting for the moon is great, Steve Pederson shot for the moon too. Then was turned down time after time after time until he got Callahan.
Just read that Rimington has been approached to be interim AD
Why would we bring in someone from the outside with no A.D. experience just to be interim A.D.?
Failed AD, debatable. who hired Timmy and Bo?
Because they want to gauge reaction before they offer him the job for real?
Domino #1 has fallen.
I'm assuming there are some pissed off boosters that need a little coddling and ego stroking.
that was my reaction.
thanks for your sanity. rare on here...
SMH. Back to the past.
