    Chill

    This thing is going to take some time folks. Look around at some of the rebuilt programs having success. With few exceptions, it didn't happen overnight. Some of the stuff I am seeing on these boards remind me of some of the crap I saw on the other side of the state early in Ferentz's career. Chizik deserves every bit of the patience we gave McCarney. There have been disappointments, especially in the last two and a half games, but I believe some progress has been made too. At least at one point I thought I read we were playing more freshman than anyone. I think second guessing and criticism is part of being a fan but we need to circle the wagons a little. We gotta keep the faith.

    Don't you mean "early in Ferentz's tenth year?"

    By the way, all of this has been mentioned before. Nobody listens.

    Anyone who lived through the Walden years won't hit the panic button until 2012, so don't worry so much

    Re: Chill

    The thing is, this is a message board. Life and Death don't get decided here. We're just spouting off. That's what message boards are for. We obviously can't talk about how good we are, so what do you expect to read here. If it wasn't for being a place to complain (and people complaining about the complaining) this place might not have much traffic.

    And yet the swagger is back at NE in the first year.

    2010 for bball and 2012 for football will be top drawer for us. It just times to come back from an abyss if you are not Austin or Lincoln.

    Jigsaw begs to differ. You have now entered the game.

    What would our football team be without the internet? The complaining has been going on for years but now we get to spread it amongst our "friends"
