    I listened to AM 590 tonight after the press conference, sounds like order is restored again.

    I thought Iowa fans were borderline insane, but I truely believe Nebraska fans need to profesional help now.

    Any thoughts on this hire? Should we worry? What are you expecting?

    Personally I don't think this was a grandslam hire. I don't see too many LSU fans getting upset or worried about losing Polini.

    Wasn't that their dumb slogan when they hired Callahan or coming into this year?

    They have certain advantages but the glory days of steamrolling the league are over no matter who is coaching.

    What has Pelini done that has been so great?

    Compare his resume with Chizik's and whose is better? Seems like an easy answer to me.

    thats because he was an assistant. Most fan bases don't lose it when one of their assistants is hired. I think the relationship was a bit strained but you didn't see Texas panic when we hired chizik either.

    The order restored was losing the North.

    Nebraska has advantages no debate however the Big 12 will never be the Big 8 (2) where you had OU and Neb. and everyone else. Too much parity and the conference definitely has a Texas influence now. Too mnay good teams (MU, KU, TX, TECH etc)

    Not much good comes from living in the past.

    He won his first game as a head coach in the Alamo bowl a couple years ago!

    I think this was a great hire for NU.

    I think so too, but didn't Callahan restore the order as well? That turned out swimmingly as I recall.

    Texas fans weren't exactly upset about losing Chizik, though. Especially after that K-State game last year, they were really accosting him of underperforming with all that talent, similar to the criticisms leveled against Pelini. Then after it came out that he was interviewing with us at the same time, Longhorn fans really accused him of dogging his responsibilities as D-Coordinator.

    Of course, their new guy, Akina, has drawn a great deal of criticism this year as well. Mack Brown, too. Pretty funny.

    Losing to K-State 2 years in a row will do that to a fanbase. Wonder what their excuses were this year after losing to them again since they don't have Chizik to kick around anymore. I'm sure they were just talent deficient.

    Yeah, but I think some teams just match up differently and K-State seemed to have Texas's number the last couple years. OU seemed to have Missoui's while we played OU pretty well.

    Akina isn't a new guy. Chizik and Akina were co-defensive coordinators in 2006 and many Texas fans were thinking this year they would be so much better with Akina, alone, calling the defense. Maybe it was Akina getting in Chizik's way.:yes:

    I think its hilarious listening to Husker fans..."I expect Pelini to win us a Big 12 Championship within two years, and a national championship in four years."

    :twitcy:Sometimes I wonder about that entire state....
