It's been 24 hours since the devastation that happened yesterday. I'm still not sure if it has totally sunk in. OUR Nebraska Cornhuskers
played absolutely terrible
. After reading the papers, watching the news, and listening to a few sports talk stations I am hearing all of these amazing statistics that further prove how awful the Huskers have been playing. How is a dedicated Husker fan supposed to react?
Are we supposed to point the finger and say that we need a "regime change"? Is it the coaches fault? Get rid of Perlman, Pederson, Callahan, Cosgrove??? Are our players just not as good as we thought/hoped they would be? I'm not sure if anyone knows the answer, but we do know that something has to change.
Being a Husker fan since an early age, it's hard to see our Huskers get so man-handled on the field. It's hard to take. I can only remember one losing season(2004) since I've been a fan. I hate to say it but I think we have a losing season in the making. On the sports talk radio they are saying our only opponent that we have a chance against the rest of the season is A&M!!?
I do think that some changes in the coaching staff need to be made, and I think they have to start at the top to make any sort of a difference. I don't think Callahan is a good fit as a college coach. He might be okay in the NFL, but not cut out for college. Just look at Pete Carrol from USC. He was a NFL coach and not very successful. He made the switch to NCAA, and look at him now. Some coaches are meant for the pros and others belong in college.
I don't believe that Pederson will fire Callahan because he was the decision maker that got Callahan into the program. If some changes have to be made, Pederson has to be replaced so a new head coach can take the helm. Another note on college coaches, I think a key part of being a great college football coach is a "motivation" factor. You have to be a great motivator, besides a good coach. I just don't see Callahan being a great motivator - I don't think it's his personality. I've never seen him fired up on the field....or anywhere!
There is going to be a lot of talk this week, and the rest of the season, of what the Huskers need to do to "right the ship". It's going to very interesting to see how all of this plays out.
