He knows and understands Nebraska. He talked to Dr.Tom Osborne, absolutely loves Rhule and his staff. He truly believes in the Huskers.

I think he equal to Trev Alberts. Unlike previous ADs, like Alberts, he's a 'local' guy.

Hard to really know for sure at this point in time. Let's see how things are going a year or two from now.

If he is committed yes, but these 'elites' are a problem for decent society. They sell us down the river every time it seems. Trev owed us more explanation than we got. May A&M lose every game.

Maybe he can pull the knife out of our backs that Trev stuck in? He has forever ruined his Nebraska legacy by bailing on us! He was looking to move up probably before he took the AD job. So yes I'm excited.

I gave up our 4 season ticket a few years ago because of the deficiencies in the South Stadium and then they announced the renovations. Guess I made the right call afterall.

Far too expensive. Special seating for the rich is not fair to the majority of season ticket holders.

I don't think the half billion price tag to renovate a 100 year old stadium makes fiscal sense right now. There are also more economical ways to improve south stadium without completely tearing it down and displacing 22K fans for 2 years.

They were arbitrary plans. No legitimate schematic or even a mockup. Hard to back "we can't describe it, just trust us."

I think it is good to slow down the project and wait until we starting wiinning as then demand will significantly increase. Also wait until the economy is doing better and interest costs decrease. To me it is being good financial stewards of the Atheltic Department finances. Phases are good.

because I thought that this may not be a good time to be spending that much, when we haven't even finished the last project. I think our AD will have to be able to read the money people, and the times. I thought that Trev A couldn't live with that.

Compensation has always been tied to market value. These athletes are worth far more than they're being compensated, and that's been the case for over a century. Hence, they've been ripped off. I support salary, salary cap, and education on how to invest it in 401k style accounts.

It has to fair across the board, from Fordham to Alabama. one monthly stipend for everyone, not just scholarship players. There has to be a limit on how many players all schools should abide by. Determine the national budget and every school must contribute.

Compensation changes the entire dynamic of college athletics, and not in a positive way.

They should be students and NOT professional athletes. If they want to get paid they can go pro. Personally, I believe they should cancel all sports in public schools and colleges though I love our Huskers.

Put myself through school in the 70's. They are getting for exchange of their athletic prowess what I had to work and save for. The two summers after high school I drove alfalfa trucks 12 hours a day 7 days a week. EARN IT!

They already live better than most students. Free room and board, tutors, clothing, and actual education cost.

They are compensated with room and board plus an education. The perks they get as athletes now are unbelievable!!!
