I'm gonna try and help fallen Nebraska football back on its feet. Firing Frank Zolich was the start of it all. Frank Zolich is a good coach. Bringing in Bill Calahan was crazy, hiring Bo Pelini was just adding insult to injury, Bo Pelini is a terrible coach, although he did recruit some good players, he just didn't know how to coach a team to victory. Hiring Mike Riley over Scott Frost, are you kidding me, Scott Frost is the best QB in Nebraska football history. For the last time stop hiring…Continue

That was a great win yesterday. Mike Riley's play book goes well with Nebraska football, it actually sparks old fashioned Husker football, but there is a part that ticked me off yesterday. When Nebraska was on the Oregon 20 yard line and driving in the 2nd quarter, and play caller calls a slow lofty HB screen that goes for a fumble 50 yards the other way. Come on Riley. take a page from Frank Zolich's playbook and next time just keep running right at the oppenent dont call a chicken play…Continue
Barney Cotton and the Huskers played like the real Huskers against USC. Even though Huskers lost they did not get crushed, because Barney Cotton revived that old fashioned Husker smash mouth football. I wish Barney Cotton would be the head coach. How is a pac 10 coach gonna coach Husker football? the Huskers don't need some fancy finese offense, they just need to play like the old days, I cant stand all these sloppy offenses that so many college teams play now, its almost like watching kids…Continue
thank goodness for the end of pelini terrible at coaching offense knew a thing or two about defense but not enough to stop top teams. an explosively angry coach, good riddens. hire a coach that will bring back real Husker football. College football is not meant to be played like the NFL, just need a fundamentally sound team to win in college. I would hire Scott Frost, one of the best husker players of all time.

The Huskers finally got a good quarterback in Tommie Armstrong, The Offense is looking strong, now if the Huskers defense can do good Husker Football may be a top contender this year.

that was a good win against a tough Georgia team. Tommy Armstrong is a way better quarterback than T. Mart.The Husker coaching staff did well this game. I still don't think Pelini can coach the Huskers back to the top. But nothing wrong with winning the Gator Bowl over UG. That 99 yard pass was awesome. T. Armstrong is an excellent QB, But the running game is not as dominate as it should be. Run the ball.

its time for NU to thank Bo Pelini for all his coaching efforts and wish him farewell. Nebraska needs a new coach.
for the first time in a long time I saw vintage Husker Football yesterday when Nebraska beat Illinois. The Huskers had a relentless rushing attack on offense that just wore down Illinois defense. The defense got more and more aggresive and intimidating as the game went on. Granted Illinois is not the best team in the NCAA, but finally a spark of vintage Husker ball.

pelini needs to take notes from stanford coach, see how stanford coach remains cool and calm during game doesn't yell at his players, and doesn't get frazzled thats how to coach. pelini gets to bent out of shape during games and its hurting Huskers performance.
Bring Frank Solich back!!!!!!!!
I commend pelini and his staff's efforts and for going out and playing better against Georgia than wisconsin. The Huskers played a decent game only to lose it in the end, because of dumb play calling by pelini and beck. That wildcat handoff that led to abdullah fumbling. Absolutely the dumbest play call and that change the momentum in georgia's favor. Then pelini and d coordinator get burned badly on that slip screen that went for a 70 yard td for georgia. I think Pelini needs to go hand him…Continue
Pelini and tim beck need to understand misdirection is good once in awhile, but to win you gotta run the ball righ at your oppenent, thats why the HUskers offense is struggling not enough running off tackle or down the middle off right guard or left guard with the running backs. just run the ball down the middle and wear the defense down then open up the playbook. this is what is not the same with the huskers. T-Mart runs the ball okay,but he has fumbled A lot and T-mart running the ball all…Continue

Just to remember the good days of Husker football I have been watching old Husker games on video. My favorite is the Eric Crouch and Jamal Lord seasons. The Huskers were really fun to watch back then. I finally realize during the calahan era it was nice to see the Huskers put up 60 points and throw 80 yard touchdown passes, but thats not Husker Football. Pelini hasn't revived Husker football either. The Huskers went wrong when they fired Frank Solich. The Huskers need to find some former…Continue
I liked the huskers wiith frank solich as head coach, the huskers under calahan showed some good, but in the end calahan didn't accomplish a dog gone thing, calahan lost every big game the huskers had with him as head coach. Same thing with pelini he has improved the team some, but in the end pelini's coaching has not won any big games. Solich did not win every big game, but he did win a few. I just don't think pelini's coaching is working. I think the Huskers should have stuck with Frank…Continue
That loss to Wisconsin was terrible. Pelini is not getting the job done. I know Huskers fan didn't like Calahan, but Calahan's offense would be more competitive in todays college football. I like the Tim Beck offense its not bad, but when you have a quarterback who throws 2 interceptions and a fumble and a defense that can't make stops there is no way to win. The Huskers have not won a big game since 2001 when beating Oklahoma, its pathetic. The Huskers still are just mediocracy. I have lost…Continue
this win over the badgers is the first big game the Huskers have won in a long time. The Huskers have got to stop turning the ball over. I'm glad the Huskers were finally able to pull out a big win, because it has choke after choke in big games.

The huskers have to get a more potent on offense to be a legitimate top 25 contender. I like the Huskers going back to some option and running the ball, and still throwing the ball. Beck is a good offensive coordinator, I like seeing some old osbourne plays it was nice, but the huskers offense stalled out against S. Carolina, and Wisconsin, Michigan the refs kept the Huskers out of it , them jerks, but anyway the Huskers still have to be more potent on offense. It could start by getting rid…Continue
Not a bad season, terrible ending though to lose to south carolina. The problem that remains is the huskers offense just isn't good enough. its good against teams with a small or slow defense, but against a fast strong defense like south carolina it just didn't work. The Huskers offense is too simple, Carolina had the huskers offnese totally figured out by the 3rd quarter. the huskers need to get out of the pistol formation, that formation is no good. Also the option just isn't gonna do it.…Continue
