You have no favorite boards.
As a would be arbiter, I would say that both sides of the argument have good talking points.
Pelini has failed to deliver key wins or conference championships while lagging behind on recruiting. These are valid points.
Meanwhile, he is averaging nearly 10 wins a season.
The disagreement is focused on what's more important; key wins and conference championships, or 10 win seasons.
While you could argue that key wins, conferences championships and the occasional run at the BCS title IS more important in the world of Nebraska football, consistent 10 win seasons trumps that in the final analysis. (Consider Gene Chizik, who was fired 2 years after winning the national championship. He wasn't fired for not winning the conference or getting to the NCG those two years, he was fired for going 3-9 and 0-8 in conference his last year.)
Bo Pelini isn't going to get ousted averaging a 10-4 season every year, despite how much fans long for conference championships and title runs.
As long as he's doing that, he'll be given the recurring chance to "align the stars" and maybe have a 13-1, CCG winning, BCS playing, shot at the title type of year.
Bamboo, or else...
