    Nebraska still screwed

    I just listened to part of the press conference today and their president or chancellor or whoever it was stood up there and lied and tried to weasel his way out of this whole thing. He's the one that gave Pederson an extension less than 6 months ago and now is saying that the morale throughout the athletic department is such that they had to fire him. So, umm, isn't that something you should have known 6 months ago? This guy must be completely beholden to the people holding the purse strings and seems to be pretty incompetent at that aspect of his job.

    They're either going to have to pay a ridiculous salary or take a chance on someone desperate for a high profile job no matter what the problems are. What kind of an AD with any brains would jump on that sinking ship?

    Re: Nebraska still screwed

    Why did the president not fire the guy that gave him an extension?

    Man,

    Don't phrase it that way. I'm buying into the fact that JP is "builder" not a "maintainer".

    Don't want him to go for "resurrector"

    Do the words "sacrificial lamb" mean anything to you!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    Re: Nebraska still screwed

    Dan Koch the big donor told Harvey Pearlman that SP had to go. Vegas odds that whole Callahan staff will be gone end of year is 90%. The team quit on Callahan - they had no emotion last Saturday for the tunnel walk. They quit after 3 plays. They no longer care enough to win. They will go 1-4 or 0-5. They will not win the North or go to a bowl.

    No player emotion. Sam Keller will not be an All American. Rivals is overrated. You still have to COACH OR CONNECT WITH PLAYERS AND DONORS.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I'd be willing to do it, just so I could get the chance to extend Callahan for 1000 years, with a $10 Trillion buyout clause and then quit the next day.

    My farewell speech would go something like: "Nanny, nanny boo-boo, you stupid Bugeaters!"
