This is how far we come in Bo Pelini tenure. What a joke! I have lost all faith in Bo Pelini to get this program back to the elite! Talent and coaching is just not on par for what it should be in year 5! The excuses have run dry and I think it is time to look in a different direction!
Love to hear your thoughts.
I have felt this way immediately after a bad loss but this one is hanging on longer. I live in ames and watch paul rhoads and the wayy he gets every ounce out of his teams with little talent and then i watched in person the lack of emotion last night. It is discouraging. Bo has to be willing to look himself in the mirror relative to his defense and i don't see that happening. I think the worst part of all this is knowing i have many more long days of being down about the way the huskers play this year.
I don't like to jump to conclusions after one game, but if this is what we are going to see in year 5 Dr. Tom better start thinking about it. I just don't know. Last nights loss still has me baffled. There is no excuse for last night.
cool picture from space
"Am gonna lay the truth down , am gonna strap it on and tell it like it is as we say. Bo is a rookie head coach! His "mistakes" and what he does are expected i think.
It took TO at least 10 years to get the assets (the right student / athletes) to make his concept a reality. It took him 10 years to realize he has to get bigger, stronger and faster on all positions especially on the defensive side of the ball to compete with FSU, Miami and some of those SEC schools.
After that student / atheletes came knocking on Nebraska's doors! He caught so much heat than hell that he almost took Colorado job. The only reason he stated not to go was his loyalty to the student / athletes he had recruited; so he stayed and the rest was history
I, like some of you dont like some of the things Bo does sometimes. He was not hired to be liked however, as soon as he still commands respect he's not going to go anywhere or get fired. I am as frustrated as anyone for example why UCLA did not get a few doses of Imani Cross.

No reason to abandon ship already. He can still win the B1G championship and make a BCS game. No reason at all for everyone to want to hang the guy for a lost. Plus, jumping to conclusion like this isnt good for anyone and especially the team/the kids.
We sometimes forget the BIG picture when dealing with losing. NO one likes to lose especially ME, but Bo has done some very goodthings with the program and who would you pick to replace him? You cant fire if you dont have a hire.
Give the man a chance to pull up his big boy pants and prove to everyone that he's a very good coach! Stop crying after every set back and be a real Big Red fan and stand behind your team this season and see where it goes..
If you cant say something nice, shut your damn mouth!! GBR
+1 for you sir. We fire Bo after most likely 5; 9 win seasons and this program will never recover. Patterson or Peterson would not come here with our lofty expectations, based on NC runs almost 20 years ago. We simply dont have the recruiting base. We need Tommy Armstrong to be the next Cam Newton, thats the only thing thats going to put this program over the top...elite QB play. We have some good athletes at the skill positions, and some up and coming defensive talent that we need to start playing NOW, but other then that it takes a special QB to make a special team. Hundley is just that for UCLA the will thrive as long as he stays healthy. Our LBs and ends this year are too slow to cover quick backs and TEs out of the backfield and they killed us those matchups. Corey Cooper did pretty well, we need better LBs and we have some good ones learning and growing its just going to take time. The senior class this year was a terrble terrible class for obvious reasons. I thought Kevin Williams did a pretty good job and was bigger then i expected, he will continue to grow and get better.
Now matter how good Taylor looks against mediocre defenses, when the pressures on he doesnt have what it takes to get the job done. Taylor is an average QB and we will continue to be average with him at QB. He doesnt have what it takes to get balls into tight coverage, our recievers have to be wide open for him to compete a pass, if they are slightly covered he panics, and he doesnt have the elusiveness to make something out of nothing.
We found out just how bad So Miss was and just how good UCLA was. Hopefully by the end of the year UCLA proves to be a very good team and this loss really changes some things on Defense, no more Whaley, lets get Santos and Anderson in and see what they got. I think we worked so hard on scheme that we dont work on the basic fundamentals of tackling. Alot of times it just takes one or two guys (Lavonte David) to really make the defense better.
Time to simplify the schemes and play some basic fundamental defensive principals. Get the young guys like Rose ,Afalava, Brown, Santos, and Anderson on the field, they certainly cant do as bad as we did Saturday. Our currently LBs are way to slow. We have to quit trying to stock pile talent, and get the kids on the field to learn from experience. By the time they learn the complicated schemes key guys like Gomes Hagg and David are gone and we dont have anyone with experience to take over. Im my opinion its part of the learning curve of a rookie head coach.
Good post. I say lets live or die with the young defensive talent.. they can't be worse and at least we would be buildingg for the future. I know Bo is loyal but if he doesn't change some things that loyalty will cost him his job and maybe he is fine with that?
the defense looked confused slow and out of shape. of course none of this could possibly be attributed to coaching. it's hard to recruit to Nebraska just ask the head coach, so please sit back and watch an inferior defense let a freshman qb and 3 freshman linemen man handle our defense while the head coach cashes a 3 million dollar pay check every year until his next raise. lighten up Nebraska fans. it's BOfine.
“Patience, n. A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.”
Amen brother, it's all part of the process.
+1 you got my vote!,,,Thanks partner i made same points like you may be differently! He's done great things i support him and am sure you can read that in my comments! GBR!!

Sorry Adams but this happens every year. Losing to a team we shouldn't. Yes we have people in mind to take over for Bo. And guess what, for enough money they will come.
