    Will it be embarassing if Cotten does well at Nebraska?

    Just asking. He got a really bad rap here, but he was only here two years, and didn't have anywhere near the personnel he preferred to work with.

    The only thing that will be embarrassing is how poorly he did here.

    Somebody put it very well in regards to the question of Mac having success down at UCF (or where ever)

    Better for him to leave and succeed, than to stay and fail.

    Same holds true for Barney

    I have no interest in Barney and how his career goes in the future. We are in better hands now and for that I'm pleased. I wish Nebraska nothing but failures so in that regard I hope he fails but BC seemed like a decent enough guy while he was here.

    I think he will do fine as an offensive line coach, especially with some of the talent he will probably have. He gets in trouble as an O coordinator, as he did here.

    For who? Us or Nebraska for firing him then rehiring him?

    Barney is not the OC at Nebraska, so lets not go all coo-coo if the NU offense somehow becomes dominant (even though their main problem this season was the defense).

    He was here for three years which is why he must be held accountable for the lack of depth of OL in the pipeline.

    I'm sure cotton will do well in Nebraska, as it does in every other state, nothing to be embarassed about. You know it is "the fabric of our lives". Nebraskans are a hearty folk, who are often seen wearing flannel shirts. If I'm not mistaken, a lot of flannel is actually 100% cotton! Although it is very popular, much can still be learned about this fascinating textile. I don't really think Nebraskans care much what fabric a man wears, as long as he has a strong back............

    obviously we can credit any success nebraska has to cotton just like it is obvious that any success USF has is due to mac.

    He has better talent to start out with at Nebraska, so he might succeed. Wish him the best!

    That's the key. I think that he was worse as OC than OL coach. The OL did not get a lot better under Cotton, but he was left in quite a hole talent-wise by Fine. There are also rumors out there that Mac forced Cotton to run Loney's schemes...don't know if that is true or not. I do still wonder why Cotton put our biggest, slowest starter (Fisher) at LT, basically letting Meyer get blindsided play after play.

    Regardless, McFarland rolled out a better OL with two months to fill the talent void than Cotton did in three years. So I'm not too sad about him being at nebraska.

    Cotton had a different set of athletes to work with at NU, therefore some success. He's also better suited to be a line coach, not a coordinator.
