No offense; but we had no offense.
Don't need a Top 10 offense? Wouldn't it be nice to have one again?
Read the book, "What it Means to be a Husker". Most of the players who played under Bob Devaney talk about how he could yell, running alpines (stadium stairs), not playing for small reasons, and yet they all loved him and say it made them better. Bo's players say the same thing. Yelling isn't his problem.
However, making the big call might be. He needs to get an OC in here that can compliment his defense, and he'll have to fire Watson to do it. He also needs to learn when to pull a QB in a game and not worry if it might lead to a transfer by a immature young man.
The offense is in shambles, but the D has more than "improved some"! They're they only reason we winning games, and we had 10 wins this year. That's pretty damn amazing. Now if we could only get an o.k. offense, we'd be kings of the world.
I would prefer a physical offense that gets the job done then an offense with all the bells and whistles that isn't consistent. Obviously, I, as a fan, have no control over who our coaches are. That being said, I would think it would be difficult to find a good excuse for Watson's lackluster offense. Nebraska fans weren't happy with him after last year and now unhappy would be an understatement. One could say injuries are to blame but every team in America has injuries and frankly you can only use the same excuse so often. Production is a terrible excuse. A coach is responsible for how the players produce. If he can't get the players to produce then we need to find someone who can. Finally, you can blame it on other coaches (the O-line or the wide receivers). If they are really causing the problem (and I believe they are atleast part of the problem), Wouldn't Watson have some say as to them staying or leaving? In my opinion there has to be some change. I would prefer a clean slate (wipe out the 3 of them: Barney, Watson, and Gilmore), but at least some sort of change would be nice even if it were smaller.
Bo is certainly a better fit than Callahan...but there was no way to go but up.
NO, NO, NO to Mike Leach...............how about a young guy that has done a pretty fair job with the WR's at Oregon...........Scott Frost......I think he would be an excellent acquisition.
Also, we lost our linebacker's coach............wonder if Mike Singletary is looking for work?
