    Nebraska losing again

    Nebraska is behind 36-14 as I write this.

    So... Pedersen gets the ax. Osborne is hired, whom Callahan referred to as a "crusty old (expletive)". Nebraska will likely be 4-4 going into a difficult road game against Texas, meaning that Nebraska will likely have a losing record after the Texas game. Any doubts about Callahan being fired?

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    I realize the coaching isn't great there, but those players need to have a little pride in themselves. Letting this A&M team come in and dominate by 3 TDs smells like a team in quit mode. I realize lots of things are going on there, but those players are gutless.

    I'm not sure how this snowballed so quickly out there, but they went from playing USC in a big, primetime spot to now going 4-8 and having everyone's head roll.

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    I think the main problem with NE is that Callahan promised everyone he recruited that they would start, which of course can't happen. He also lost a lot of the experienced guys that just quite the team because the new, talented guys were suppose come in a be way better. Offensively they are okay, but defensively they are a train wreck. ISU really gave 2 games away this year, NE and of course, Toledo.

    No way Callahan survives this week as coach of the Shuckers. I predict a statement will be made by Tuesday, saying he's gone following this season.

    Clownahan isn't going anywhere.

    Hope he doesn't.

    I agree. Who wants to start a petition begging Nebbie to keep Callahan?

    Bo Ruud, Cory McKuon and another two Huskers were injured, mostly by Jaworski Lane. Outscored by 20 in second half.

    Quit mode? Sounds like the Raiders when Callahan was coaching.

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    They would be crazy to fire Callahan.... he gets them to mediocre bowl games every year, and it is hard to recruit to Lincoln, and he is the best they could ever hope to get, and who else would they get in his place.... ROFL!

    Honestly, I hope they pull it together to close the season out. With the rest of the big 12 north looking really solid, we need a creampuff Nebraska out there to give us a breather between the Missouri, KU and the other real north powers. We need those easy wins the next couple years to help Chizik get this program built back up.

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    Guys, we gotta try some "reverse English" with this. Something like this:

    "Gosh, fellas, I sure hope they fire Callahan! No way can we ever hope to compete with Nebraska with a feller like him in charge. He makes us all wet our pants in fear, every time we play the Bugeaters!"

    Now, try that, and maybe they'll keep him around for awhile, so Nebraska can become our perennial punching bag.


    A ship in port is safe, but that is not what ships are built for.

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    The main problem I have, as much as I enjoy seeing Nebraska struggle, is that we aren't beating them when they are down. We still lose. We need to take advantage of this.

    Re: Nebraska losing again

    I think Nebraska is turning into a joke. Reading the things I have online seem comical really. I think Osborne is going to stick his nose too far into the coaches business making it impossible for Calli to do anything. He is attending about every practice meeting with the coach all the time. Telling him that cordinators need to be on the sidelines.

    Come on Osborne... If you want to coach then coach... I think it would be hard for them to find a good coach after the season unless they REALLY pony up the dough. Cause they already have 2 million invested in getting Pederson out of town. I'm sure Calli won't be cheap
