At least they don't stand for mediocrity.... and then use academics as leverage when the onfield product is a failure in order to keep the wool over the sheeps eyes.


Oh, and we're just 10th in sec football academically.

Nebraska>Arkansas

A once storied program, they are now an also ran, to be forgot about for years to come because they were too finicky. I'd feel bad for those fans, but they did it to themselves, not unlike here.

If it can happen to Nebraska, it sure as hell can happen here.

Forgive me, they are a pillar of wise decisions and are reaping the rewards of listening to their hyper sensitive fan base.

You should always sympathize with the fans, its the power brokers who call the shots and muck things up. The average Joe just has to go with the flow.

Then again, I sense some strains of sarcasm. Seems sensible if so.

Nebraska fans > Arkansas fans.  Ain't even close.  They pack the house for marquee games, paycheck games, spring games regardless of Ws and Ls.  If the Huskers are playing Memorial Stadium is full.

It was more hyperbolic then sarcastic. Some fans got what they wanted, the others I do feel bad for because they essentially lost their team. That's what I fear will happen here if the loudest fans got their way.

I would love to be the Nebraska of ole, I am not saying they arent a better program, but that they are a shell of what they should be because they had unrealistic expectations and thought they would find the next Nick Saban

Yeh, Pelini was the Romo of Nebraska.  Husker AD let him stick around way too long producing 8 win seasons, especially considering the crappy attitude he had week in and week out.

How long's it been, two seasons?  In case you haven't heard it takes a minimum of 6 seasons to complete a minor remodeling of a program.

Mike Riley just got a contract extension a few weeks ago, then loses to N. Ill last week and now the AD gets fired..according to many they are linked. Many at the time thought it was a stupid thing to do, apparently they were right and now the AD is gone.   Hum.......

When the AD makes repeated mistakes at managing his most important by far program, it makes sense to make a change.

Not necessary to post Nebraska's history.   But that is what it is.  Brand has really faded.  Still a good job but not near what it was.

Producing 8 win seasons?  Please show me how many 8 win seasons he had. As a matter of fact let's count how many 8 or less in a season he had.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bo_Pelini

Probably should look and see what his actual record is there before making crap up.

True, they've slipped from near dynasty to mostly 9+ win seasons with the occasional .500 one.  Riley's gone 6-7, 9-4 his first two there and is a good fit.
