Pull yourself together folks...We all thought Bo was the answer. Guess what? He wasn't remotely the answer. Harvey made the tough decision that were necessary. He didn't 't coach. He didn't coach. What he did, was his job. His decision about Riley will pay off.

He was directly involved with firing two 9 win coaches and replacing them with jokes. I'm constantly hearing that Riley will be a success but nobody can come up with measurable proof to that point.

Too much focus on a few incidents instead of overall progress of the University -- academics and enrollment made significant gains. Excellent term.

He is a complete narcissist that has lead to the destruction of Husker football. Good Riddance.

HP was as heavily involved with Athletics as any University Chancellor I can readily remember. Unfortunately, his involvement has stymied the Athletic programs. Please let people with coaching experience run the Athletic office.

10 weeks before "Teflon Harvey" took over the Huskers played for a National Title. Last season NU had its WORST season in over half-a- century. Nothing EVER stuck to Perlman!

Perlman did one good thing....he got Nebraska into the Big Ten. Unfotunately, for him, he will be remembered most for his poor personality.

As perhaps the only member of "Russians for Nebraska" in Moscow (or anywhere in Russia for that matter), I do not like the way he treated Coach/AD Osborne at the end.

Because he always seemed rather aloof. Have not seen any great academic accomplishment from Nebraska since he has been there and did not seem a big supporter of agricultural program.

He made some bad hires and watched the department descend into the abyss. A very unlikeable man.

He should have been fired after extending Pedersen's contract. And hiring Pedersen was bad but hiring Eickhorst was worse. Trying to extend Eickhorst sneakily was horrible. He's an idiot

His poor decisions have set back husker sports years if not Decades counting the days until he is gone.

I will remember multiple contract buyouts, a contract extension for Steve Pederson months before he was fired, and overpaying our current AD to come in and find a reason to fire Bo.

The athletic department is still unstable and the academia has taken a step back. A new CBA is great, but you don't become a top school with a good CBA. Science/math/engineering is how you build a top school, and they have been ignored under Perlman's rule.

Do you see the Huskers beating the point spread against Oklahoma this weekend?

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
