    Concern about Fred

    just wondering if Fred will be like McCarney and never yell at the refs.
    If so all calls will go against us. Makes you wonder if Larry would have lost against UNI and Cal.........time will tell....

    Re: Concern about Fred

    Do you think yelling at the refs make a difference? You can talk to them.

    It will take time to get Fred comfortable...i think he will be yelling soon enough.

    The refs called quite a few traveling calls on Cal after Fred had a little chat with them

    Why would we even want a Larry when we have real class with Fred.

    Re: Concern about Fred

    Unfortunately yelling at officials and acting like a jack*ss, ala Bo Pelini, does indeed work often times.

    With that said, you can communicate to the officials without blowing a gasket and looking like a clown.

    There's a saying about catching more flies with honey than with vinegar, or whatever.

    Anyway, Fred will get his point across and do it in a respectful way, IMO.

    He will eventually. He's still getting comfortable. He had a strong talk with one of the officials yesterday during a timeout.

    Fred was working over the officials pretty good-- he just wasn't going Bo Pelini on them...which is a good thing.

    Re: Concern about Fred

    Yelling at the refs has more influence on the fans than anything else. It helps everyone get into it more. Many times fans follow the reaction of the coach if there is an arguable call.

    Re: Concern about Fred

    Yeah, and look how the Pelini's are perceived. They are classless a-holes. They also are also getting their amount of questionable calls, so obviously it doesn't help a whole lot if at all.

    I think you have to find middle ground. It seems as if Rhoads is pretty good at it.

    Re: Concern about Fred

    My one concern with Fred is that he wears his hair just a little to long. I have to wonder if Eustachy's shorter hair wouldn't have put us over the top against UNI and Cal.


    It's all snark from here on out
