    Honestly, I do feel a little bad for him. I hate how this program has gone down the crapper, I hate that this might be the worst team I’ve seen in my 46 years of existence, and I hate how this is turning into our new “normal.” But I do feel for him as he’s in way over his head and from what I’ve heard, that he’s facing other issues as well (if true).

    Riley, Diaco and the others can’t be relieved of their duties fast enough. The staff has quit and the team followed suit.

    Sorry - Don’t feel bad for him. I do feel bad for what he has done to Nebraska football.

    He took the job. He chose to go down in flames in the National spotlight. If he would have stayed in Corvallis, he would have been fired and nobody would have noticed. His choice.

    Like many, I’m ready for a change as well. I can’t disagree with that one bit.

    I agree. After the NIU game and the Eichorst firing, only a few diehards on this board thought Riley had a chance to come back. His whole staff knew that they were going to get fired. And it shows

    Some of us had hope that we could still turn things around and win the division. Those darned rose colored glasses were obviously fogged over.

    The good news is that I think we have plenty of talent to compete right away with the right hire...especially the right DC hire. Good heavens Diaco...

    We've got more talent on the roster than both of those teams. Our defensive coaching was terrible, we're playing 2 freshmen in the O line and I think a Gates was over rated. We've got a very good base to build from.

    Dinglefritz. What a homer.:( Dang I wanted us to succeed this year. The Diaco hire was a disaster. That was obvious after NIU and OSU.

    I am a firm believer that you should chance your mind/stand when you realize it is wrong. Not everyone is like that, some feel that they should dig in, so you would have to ask them.

    Crazy, considering all the resources he has compared to OSU. That was a passive-aggressive comment, however, it’s actually true.

    As they say for coaches with a two decade, .500 record: “If it looks like a duck, and walks like a duck...”

    no. IF it looks like a beaver and walks like a beaver. I think actually the second part is supposed to be quacks like a duck...it's probably a duck.

    Frank said that line a lot about the practices too. :Cool:

    Solich was better than Callahan, Bo, and Riley. But that is not saying much.

    A staff that is engaged spends 70 hours a week at work, watching film, preparing, recruiting...does it seem like this staff is that engaged? The reason they get paid millions is because of the insane hours, and the likelihood that they will be fired in the short term. I cannot imagine Riley spending 10-12 hours a day working on film, teaching, recruiting, and scheming...

    Actually, he’s .500 over 3 decades of being a head coach. Became a HC in 1987 and 30 years later, is 5 games above .500 for his HC career.
