With momentum and urgency to finish strong, I doubt that they will let down - we need a good lead at half time to get backups reps to next season. Need to put the backups early NU 52-23

The D will slow Illinois down, the Special teams will play better and the O rock and rolls. 48-20

A Defensive line coach that is nicknamed "Pot Roast". That's a recipe for success.

All of them, but especially Satterfield. Love how he uses TEs. Just hope ours can stay healthy this year. If so, guys like Fidone will be a mismatch

Not one hire has any reputable credentials or experience. Hell, the O coordinator wasn't able to call the last 2 games for his team. Ruhle was a disappointing hire and his picks are far, far worse.

I haven't seen anyone dedicated to a run first offense to my liking. If we are a pass first, second and third offense (such as the last 20 years) we will continue to fail. I would prefer to run and run and run and fail for awhile till we learn how to do it, than any short term gain passing.

Haven't seen what any of the coaches can do at Nebraska to be able to rate how much i like them. When the coaches win more than six games and go to a bowl game then I will let you no what coaches I like.. GO BIG RED TILL I DIE!!!!

Bringing in offensive coordinators who have strong offenses against teams with no defense... and bringing in defensive coaches from those teams that don't play defense. That offense will fail in the Big10.

His resume for developing kids coming in that are more the 3 star kids as it’s rare Nebraska can real in the 4 & especially 5 star kids … he’s proven he can develop those kids into stars that are being drafted into the NFL … something that only Dr Tom could seem to do in the past !

As a lifelong cornhusker fan, I believe this is just the person to put things back together that were so messed up by the firing of Frankie Solich.

First of all, you can discount all of the "thumbs down" votes that wanted Mickey, they'd vote against any new hire. MJ was the interim coach, he wasn't the next in line, nor was he fired as HC. Rhule commanded the room today, when it took Bill Moos to do this last time out... That tells us a lot

A great speaker with command presence does not equal a great coach. All the talk of toughness, etc. doesn't mean dominating the line of scrimmage, a nasty mean defense, and a ball control off that is run-oriented, all the things we once had with TO and FS. I'll take those things in lieu of wins.

Proven builder and evident respect for Nebraska. So his overall college coaching record is .522; his two year 1s combined it's .125 (3-21) taking over damaged programs; year 2s is .520 (13-12) and his 3 years 3-4 it's .756 (31-10). Looks like a builder to me. Keep MJ and Busch and it should go well.

Why the heck did Husker Nation think they deserved a better candidate than this? Let's be realistic and hope that Rhule is better than Frost and Riley, at minimum. If he's not, God help us.

He's had success as a college coach and has coached on both sides of the ball. So far, he seems to respect Nebraska football and the fans.

When it comes to coaching hires, there's no such thing as a "sure thing" or a guarantee of success (see Scott Frost). I think TA did a great job of executing a diligent and thorough nationwide search that resulted in a very good hire. One that gives Nebraska a great chance to turn it around quickly!

After celebrating the Scott Frost hire a few years ago I've learned to tread carefully about declaring who I think will be a great coach for the Huskers, but the evidence of his past work certainly looks promising.

High quality college coach....feel he will consider keeping a few current coaches with strong ties to roster and recruiting players (example - Joseph, Busch, Fisher)......Huskers Rhule.....GO BIG RED!!

Come on, the options were all maybe mediocre at best coaches. Would all be in over their heads in Big 10 just like Frost. KU coach and staff, KSU coach and staff, ISU coach and staff, NCST coach and staff, Army coach and staff, Bronco M and his VA staff? No thank you. Choice was a no brainer.

Just another attempt by wealthy alums to buy a championship. Mickey had heart of team. Smart of Rhule to get 8yr contract. In yr 3 when alums want him gone he'll join list of coaches on payout payroll.

Skeptical, never stayed long enough to measure if his programs were built to last. Bailed from each HC job after having his best year. Almost as if he doubted he could maintain the success.

Good point. If Rhule was so good, why did he leave Temple or BU? One could argue for the $, but he’s obviously not committed to a program for the long run. He played TA for a fool but unfortunately Rhule held all the cards bc TA was desperate.

Wisconsin hiring Luke Fickell was a much better hire. Nebraska pays $9 million for a Matt Rhule who went 2-16 against ranked teams, and Wisconsin pays $6 million for a proven coach who coached at Ohio State and coached Cincinnati to the college football playoff. WTF Nebraska!?

Once again Neb hired the “man” rather than hiring someone who can fix the problems of poor defense and losing on both sides of the line of scrimmage. 64 days? He obviously was not the first choice.

After hearing the press conf, I have to double-down on my thumbs down. He was obviously well-rehearsed to say all the things most people wanted to hear, but there was nothing of real substance. No idea what the team's identity will be but doesn't sound like ball control. I miss the TO and FS days.

The last one who steped down from being an NFL head coach didn't work out well. That noted, who else was out there that was looking for a job? I'll wait to see if he produces.

I honestly thought Mickey could be the guy. He held it together and the defense made a huge jump from Chinanders debacle. He needed to get rid of WHipple, Give him a year with these players and see what would of happened. Couldn't been worse than Frost. Who was way over hyped!!!

Washout from the NFL that reported had to be persuaded a 2nd time to take the job. Previous record against ranked teams is zero wins. Runs an spread offense with more focus on the pass than the run, might not work in the B10. Baylor was not a rebuild. He did nothing with them the 1st 2 years.
