Ron Brown...........that's it. Everyone else needs to go. I feel that Ron is essential to out program as he knows our program and tradition better than any other coach. It's important to keep someone around that knows about our tradition and history. Ron is also just a great person to have around maturing adults.

Coach Kaz and Coach Warren are proven as Position Coaches with their Units doing well, and especially Warren can Recruit.

With such turmoil caused by Pelini and his attitude and anti-social behavior, I think a clean start for everyone might be best.

Time for some "new blood". A few of them may be worthy of keeping around but I feel at the very most make it 1 or 2. I'm still waiting for a splash coordinator hire (not looking like it is going to happen).

Warren, Fisher, Brown & Kazz. These are the best of Bo'so crew. They will help with the continued quality of play and a smooth transition for this incoming recruits. This a very good incoming class.

I think that Coach Riley should keep Ron Brown. He provides the link to the past and produces good players and better men. I also feel that Charlton Warren is a good coach and a great recruiter. Finally Rick Kaczenski should stay given the work he has done with the defensive line and the fact that he will bring the twins in from Missouri.

Brown - Look at the development in the players he has coached. Great recruiter. Also good ties to the traditions of the past. Kaz - Has consistently been the best part of the defense since he has been hear. Great recruiter. Players love playing for him. Warren - Great recruiter, good development of Davie and Gerry over the past year. Fischer - Despite the heavy losses at WR due to injury the past two years, this group has been solid. Look at their downfield blocking. Players love the guy. Great recruiter. All in all, keeping the four best recruiters from the previous staff, and some really good coaches. I have a hard time believing we can see that great of upgrades from what we already have (which is pretty good).

Or three best units have been our running backs, D-line, and secondary (just look at Gerry's development). Keep Ron, Kaz, and Warren. Obivously, Warren has already been decided.

We have three excellent coaches on the existing staff that aren't necessarily Pelini guys; Coach Brown, Coach Warren and Coach Katz. Retaining these three and bring in powerhouse O & D Coordinators

The relationships with the players is important. The pass defense has been exceptional. We should not lose that.

Brown Definitely! Warren...Kazinski... Fisher...Garrison...Dobson. At least the first 4. I don't think you have a choice like on Jeff Jamrog since he's an assistant AD and what do you do with Grad assistants? Joe Ganz is a GA. But we've got some resources for Riley right there on the Remaining Staff.

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

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.

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.

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.
