    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    So that's why Billy was pushing him to get a HC job somewhere...he wanted him gone.

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    I thought Norvell got the Iowa State job? Oops..

    Happy to see him get a chance to be an actual caller. UCLA is a good chance for him, hope it works out.

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    yea Nebraska is stupid, well Callahan is, he might be the single worse play caller in college football today, he either runs every play or passes every play in a series, he doesn't know how to do both, if he doesn't get a real play caller by next year he is doomed, they have the talent, but won't improve unless they can find a play caller!

    Ummm...they had a pretty good year last year. They won the north and played in the Cotton Bowl. They have improved every year under his leadership. I'd take that every day of the week and twice on Sunday.

    Yeah, and did you see the plays he called when the Cotton Bowl was on the line? They were absolutely atrocious!

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    I agree that he is a horrible play caller and not a great decision maker in general (see the fake punt against Auburn).

    They are winning due to the fact that the Big 12 North is generally pretty weak and they still have enough tradition, support, facilities to get good talent. Blake probably helped in that regard as well.

    And did you see some of Tressell's play-calling for OSU in the national title game? Does that make him a bad coach?

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    what about Barney Cotton as a play caller. He has to be the absolute worst of all-time.

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    The first 15 plays are scripted by staff and they usually scored first. Then Bill goes to work calling plays and the game melts down. Bill calling plays is an advantage for the other teams. Let him call the plays. Word has it that Shane watson will probbaly be elevated and take on play calling duties. Time will tell. One thing is Jay Norvell was a player coach and they will miss him. Maybe recruiting will slip a little next year.

    No thanks. Barney Cotton is the worst assistant coach I will ever see in my lifetime. He's not able to find a college job after the atrocities he committed at ISU, and I will laugh heartily when he's forced to take a high school job.

    I don't care if his son comes here or not. Show some compassion you say? Nope...if you're paid $170,000 a year, you DAMN WELL better be earning it.

    I've heard that Ben Cotton will not be coming to ISU no matter what. Probably still some bad blood. Take it for what its worth.

    Wow you don't like kids from NE and any one who's looks remind you of Marsden and you don't want Cotton's son because he is Cotton's son. Time for you to move on Michael you will fit in better in Iowa City

    Re: Norvell out at Nebraska

    Callahan is a moron. He has the luxury of the largest budget in the North, unbelieveable facilities and an instate recruiting network next to none. His record is worse that Solich and he has single handedly lost big games with stupid calls. He would have been much better off to let Norvell call the plays, and I'm sure Norvell had enough of watching this idiot make major botches. Nebraska has the Texas game won this year, except for Callahan's decision at the end of the game. We are fortunate he is there, it opens the door for the Cyclones to win the north in the near future.
