    You are trying too hard to defend your crappy take. My response was to your statement of B1G being “notorious for creating abysmal football programs while having 2 or 3 relevant teams.”
    Didn’t Northwestern win the B1G West last year? You can’t use just this year’s results of a few teams to poorly attempt to support the narrative of that statement.

    That’s why I said “assumption.” I cant prove it one way and you can’t prove the other. All I know is we got the hottest coach from 2 years ago and where are we now?

    If Bo was such a ******* great HC then where were the D1 teams lined up to hire him after Nebraska let him go? Why hasn’t anyone snatched him up since?

    Nebraska football is not dead. It is poorly coached. Woefully coached. Not dead.

    They don't need a resurrection. They need their coaches to get better at their jobs.

    Abysmal programs brag about a division title once a quarter of a century.

    the BT has only been in divisions for 8 years, not a quarter of a century.

    Totally wrong. Callahan was a losing machine and his 4th & last year was probably the worst.

    Yet then for 7 years Bo had zero losing seasons despite being sandwiched between Callahan & Smiling Mike. But of course, results don't matter any more.....

    Callahan did take us to a conference championship in year 3 and was a stud recruiter. Him not wanting to let go of his friend cost him his job. Offensively Callahans teams were better than Frosts, and that’s saying a lot considering how tough it was to go from option to wco.

    You and I obviously have a different definition of “abysmal” then. I would say abysmal programs don’t win the title at all. Kind of like Nebraska in the Big Ten.

    TCU rolled that Purdue team when it was at full strength this year and you are talking big 12?

    Top two conferences against out of conference power 5 schools. Welcome to reality. Troll.

    1. SEC
    2. Big 12

    Feel free to look that up. Nice of you to ignore the 7 crappy teams in the big 10.

    Callahan took a QB run primarily offense and went West Coast. In year 2 he won a bowl game (we won’t do that this year). Year 3 won a division title. Year 4 had he not been so blind to Joe Ganz’s ability, and been willing to fire his buddy DC, he could very well still be here. 27-22 in 4 years at Nebraska. 5-7 in his last season (what’s our likely record again this year?). Hardly a losing machine.

    Pelini, had he learned to be a ******* adult he’d still be here. 5-3 every year in the division except for 2012 when we were embarrassed beyond belief in Indy against the # 3 team in the other division (that we barely squeaked by at home earlier in the year). You think we were going anywhere with him?

    Why are you here? For the life of me I have not thought about once going to an Iowa St board after one of your frequent losses.

    We have the exact same # of CCG appearances that Iowa does in 8 years, and the same # of Rose Bowl appearances as Iowa in the last 25. Iowa is better than Nebraska at the moment, but let’s not pretend anyone is currently, or has ever been historically, worried about Iowa on a national stage.

    Frequent losses...from a husker? Man you guys need to wake up to where you are now.

    Don't worry. I will let you off the hook before you start citing ancient history.

    Yes frequent losses. You all have won 9 or more games once this century. We all admit we have been mediocre as hell and we have done that 12 times.

    And again, I ever never once thought “welp Iowa St lost......let me head on over and talk shit.”

    The difference is you all will be doing backflips over a 6-6 year.

    And record has nothing to do with my post. I’ve never once thought about Iowa St after we left the Big 12. Glad to see we still live rent free in your head.

    Bo had two issues. 1) Wisconsin made him look silly and most other big games he blew like against Texas and OU. But at least he got to the big games. 2) His temperate and attitude. He would have gotten D1 offers if #1 was his only issue. #2 eliminated him from D1 head coaching.

    You live rent free in the delusion category and the comedy club.

    Good stuff reading about how you were back to start the year. Really good stuff. Should I look up your delusion on that?

    Again.. sign of a loser.... talking about ancient history and not the current reality.

    PS nobody thinks about Nebraska as a good team. We do get a good chuckle out of your delusion. I'm here for the comedy.

    I never said any of those things. Try again. I’ve been very critical of this staff.

    And again, the only loser is you for even being on this board. Why Nebraska is even in your mind I don’t know. Again, I’ve never once thought about heading to an Iowa St board after one of your usual losses.

    You have a reading comprehension problem. The Big 10 is better than the Big 12 was when we were in that conference. That goes back to 2010 and before. Are you following? It is a tougher deeper league. Was then and is now. Got it?

    Oh so you want to talk about this year? With any luck we will get to see what OSU will do to your champion this year.

    Congrats on finding a stat to back up your position. Our #6 team beat your #4 team at their place. ESPN power rankings has the Big 10 #2.

    Is the Big 10 weak at the bottom with 14 teams? Sure. Does that mean the Big 12 isn’t weak at their 8-10??? So who is ignoring stuff?

    Put OSU, PSU, and Wisky in the B12 this year and see where’d they’d finish this year.

    Does any program want to be compared to Ped State? It will forever be tainted by the Sandusky-Paterno scandal.

    It's too bad you don't live in reality. I love that Nebraska fans now don't care about actual wins and losses.

    Big 12 wins over power 5 schools > big ten.

    2018 horrible Kansas team..
    Kansas 55
    Rutgers 14

    LOL. The delusion is strong on the board.
