    Barney is in the doghouse again. Bo is going ballistic. Fans are upset. Big Ten is not fixing the hoopla ego problems in Lincoln. Too many lines with funny insights.

    NU run game sputters; defense can't solve backup QB - Omaha.com

    Just handed out 19 blackshirts last week, might have to take them back.:swoon:

    Three years....:shocked:

    Again?:unsure:


    Sounds familiar.:eek:

    One would have been nice.:confused:

    This is not intramurals. This is BIG TEN FOOTBALL.

    Funny video also.....two losses in conference...Penn State up next....

    Funny thing is that this B1G is probably the weakest year of football they have had in years. PSU is in the first place and could not stay within 30 points of the leaders of the SEC, BIG12 and PAC12

    Pelini is trying to bring back the old Nu coaches when he was there. Cotton is a poor coach. Pelini can no longer use partial qualifiers like osburne did. Looks like recruiting may not be his forte also, who would want to play for an *** like that? The big ten style of football is not sexy to a southern or western kid, cold also.

    I think Pellini is going to literally kill a referee with his bare hands before he retires... on the flip side, the pressure of the most important job in the state of nebraska, trying to appease the "greatest fans in america" is probably wearing on his fiery italian personality... not a good combo. He did step in as an interim coach after the team went 9 and 3 back in 2003.... so he knows what he's dealing with.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 16 less than 30?

    Hey, no facts. That is not a fair argument to counteract the Big Ten argument. This after most don't seem to think OkSt could put up a fight against LSU or Bama.

    I fear the day Bo Pelini isn't the coach of nebraska. He is as classless as most of their fans are condescending and arrogant. He is a perfect fit for that state.

    Mr bcclone from Icity, you do make a very good instructive point ie...


    There is NO southern or western kid who wants to play big 10 football these days because its too far geographically and its also just too darned COLD in November.


    This historic move to the B1G mite just turn out to be the "Bust of the Century", if dee big red can't make it to Indiananpolis and the champship game this year.


    If I were a big red fan and admittedly I AM NOT ... If I didn't get a trip to indiana at the end of this season ...

    I would expect some heads to roll in good old huskerland...:sad:


    Go Ye Mighty Cyclones..............Beat the Cowpokes.....:yes:

    So, the moral of the story is that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Hmm. Who would have known?

    After watching CU Later and Nebby this year, things have not progressed as well as expected.

    Both KFC and Pelini will really need that win when they meet in Lincoln this year. The match of the high paid coaches. Each win is worth half a mil to the coach.

    CyBobby- Agree that NU's southern and western recruiting will dry up, especially in Texas where they have been heavily dependent on talent. NU's talent will continue to get watered down until they are barely an average big 10 team lucky to win minor bowl games. Big Red has been dead for a decade now and it will only get worse.

    Look at the Coolrado sad sack website for their current stories - no mention of football, just golf, tennis, vball, bball.

    CUBuffs.com - Official Athletics Web site of the University of Colorado

    Mo, you don't worry about being irrelevant. You can always beat Vbilt.


    Buried in the website under embarrassed:

    When you take a linebacker and make him a safety in a passing league, good luck, buddy.

    The irrational talk on sports radio in Omaha today will be fun.
