Tougher because the thoughtless press has created turmoil. Something nobody wants to get involved in. The press has also succeeded in giving UN a black eye as they prostituted themselves to release a worthless piece of garbage story that was suppose to be confidential regardless of what was said. I say find the perps. if it was a player expose him. If it was a bug, prosecute.

It was an intentional act by Bo... and probably effective. An act to undermine the new coach, to cause uncertainty among players and 2015 recruits, and to indirectly give a "black eye" to NU.

Why can't the press just leave these secret recordings alone. Only cowards do don't admit they recorded something. It was a private meeting and should have stayed that way. The press are as worthless as politicians if we flushed them down the toilet nobody would miss either one of them. Let it die and move on end of story. Now this is going on just get behind Coach Riley and forget about the decision is made. You might not like Bo but he did settle things down after the last time. Did you forget that former NFL coach that lead us to 2 seasons with no bowls and a losing record twice.

All he has to do is be genuine with his players and the people who love NU Football. Be himself and the players who earn respect with in turn be respected

The more you know, the better you can address the issue. Riley has the info to help him recognize and understand player resistance that may arise.

Nobody ever said the Brothers were a class act. But I expected a little more. Already being admonished in the new job! CLASSY

Proves SE knew what he was doing and was classy about the reasons. That bodes well for working with him and shows Riley is a good fit for SE.

People will like his demeanor and the fact that the focus will be on what happens on the field of play, not the sideline or the opinion pages. He still has to win though.

Lets not judge. Evidence produced does paint Pellini as being rough and disrespectful. Face it the NCAA football family now knows more and he placed himself in a precarious situation within his career. As Huskers we are taught to forget the past, handle the present and prepare for the future. Riley is preparing for the future and we as fans need to support our kids in the present against USC. Challenge goes out to the entire Husker Nation, lets make the Holiday Bowl bleed RED in show of support for our kids.

The players are going to find out that Riley is much easier to get along with.

I initially took Bo's outbursts as passion and fire but concluded he is just petty and not a true leader. Semper fi

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.

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.
