More pro Big Ten media arrogance here. Just like how they were all saying how dominating Wisconsin was over TCU - in the post game coverage! Miles already turned down Michigan once before, to the shock of the media world. Why would anyone want to leave LSU for Michigan, an economically depressed state, with worse weather and an even worse defense??? Being from Chicago, we in the Midwest need to realize we are not the center of the US anymore, figuratively speaking. Harbaugh was either going to go to Miami or San Francisco, not Michigan or the Cleveland Browns. And Cleveland, I'm sorry, but I'll pick Miami over you too, lol.
I'll be shocked if Les Miles goes to Michigan. If he does, then he needs to get his “hat” examined!
Dude, get off the former Husker trip. Devaney wasn't a former Husker, Tom was a Nebraskan, but he wasn't a Husker.
"already the Huskers are back in the wrong direction with Pelini"
a 9 win, 10 win, and 19 win season equals the wrong direction? I don't know what you're smoking, but put it down. The offense is a mess, but a lot of that has to do with Bo NOT wanting to do what Callahan did. Callahan came in and changed everything around and tried to run West Coast with option recruits. Joe Daily never had a chance and yet he still went before the cameras after every loss and took it like a man. He was a classy kid.
Bo wants a very different offense, as he said when he first came in. He also said it will take time to develop. That means get in his recruits, and figure out who's going to run his offense. I don't think Wats is the guy, at least not for the smash-mouth ball Bo wants to play. I expect Bo to make a move here soon on a new OC. Not sure if he'll do it before heading into the Big10. The idea of bringing in someone new as we head into the gauntlet of next season I'm sure is a bit scary.
We don't need to "right the ship". Callahan capsized it, and Bo has already done that. He just needs to fill the cracks and plug the holes. Don't get me wrong, the holes do need to be plugged, and the sooner the better.
Read this: it's a great piece
Oh I realize who he had. He's also had top recruiting classes since he's been here. And that's why I don't follow recruiting classes. You never really know what you're getting until they play in games. If he gets his smash mouth offense running, I'll be very happy. If he continues to let Wats run this identityless offense as we move through the transition years I'll be unhappy.
That's why coaches get a 4-5 year cushion when they take over a program that's in shambles. Good coaches come in and try to win with what they have and slowly move into the new scheme. If he had come in and switched to a power running game with the West Coast style players we had, he'd had made as big a mistake as Callahan made when he came in and tried to make Joe Daily a West Coast QB.
Like I said. We're starting to hit the point where he needs to be making the switch. He's proven that he can win a lot of games, now its time to start winning the big ones.
"not that difficult"? Then why do so many teams struggle every year? Why aren't you the OC or head coach?
Q: What do you call the Huskers when they have great defense and great offense?
A: National Champions
If it was that easy, we'd have more than 5.
