Probably hiring Pederson was the biggest mistake.

Bo Pelini lit a fire under the defense in his first year as DC. Nebraska would have been awesome the next year. I would have loved to have seen that.

We don't know what would have happened, but it could not have been any worse. We have been foundering since his firing. Scott Frost has a big job in pulling us out of the muck. He'll get it done.

Frank knows Nebraska football inside and out Peterson was an idiot and should’ve kept Frank. Peterson never should have been hired at Nebraska He was a total and complete idiot

Firing Frank got us away from our roots and our identity. O & D schemes change but an identity shouldn't. SF is trying to bring it back now after all these years.

Pederson was one of two arrogant Husker ADs trying to make a name for himself. Moral: Don't fire 9 win coaches.

Callahan dismantled everything that made Nebraska, Nebraska. And almost 20 years later, we are just starting to get back what was lost...

HIRING Solich was the big mistake. He was over-matched. IMO, Tom Osborne shares a lot of blame for forcing Solich on the AD rather than having a national search. In 1997, NU could have had their pick of outstanding HC's. Now look at us.

It was bad... but not as bad as hiring Callahan. I dont know if Solich would have ever gotten over the hump... but Callahan sure as hell wasnt.

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
