I'm surprised that Pelini would ever want to leave Nebraska for Miami -- but what do I know? If he does leave, maybe our road to victory in the Schembechler Division becomes a little easier.
OT: Bo Pelini granted permission to speak to Miami (YTM) about coaching vacancy
Change UM to Miami (YTM)
Couldn't you just spell out Miami? I'm a little on edge these days...
You'll notice this post was tagged "OT" and not "CC": because I am referring to the University of Miami.
This was a cheap attention grab.
Okay I don't know what this CC meme is ....someone please explain
that is all
At best, moving from NEB to Miami is a lateral move for Pelini. I wonder if this is due to the fallout over his sideline meltdown during the A&M game. The NE Chancellor or the AD got all huffy over it. Maybe this is Pelini's way of saying STFU or I'll leave.
I can't imagine this will endear Bo to Husker fans, but maybe they'll take Bo's side if this is a power struggle sort of thing.
We need Husker4Life to weigh in.
Southern Florida > Southern Nebraska
Nebraska football program > or = Miami foot ball program.
Miami's stadium was half full this year. And their stadium is 45 minutes away from their campus. Who wants to play in front of 35,000 people every week?
Comrade CF has everything under control here. I hope when Bo Pelini interviews for the job that he remembers a tic-tac and to remember the six inches rule when talking to the AD.
You raise me up Comrade.
Did you ask for more nukes for christmas?
Just wondering if your supply was diminishing after this last month of posting.
Hopefully I am not on the naught list. I heard that SOB checks his list twice.
Why would he ever leave a program he's built up recently and made into a top ten team and headed to a new conference?
I'll take the corn and the fields any day. You couldn't get me into Miami, any place else in Florida or the deep South, with a crowbar.
I don't know, man. I could see Bo chewing out a bouncer for not letting him in the club in his trademark sweatshirt.
You could always go to the central part of Florida where there are plenty of cattle ranches if that's more your kind of environment.
Yes please. I want to move to a place with high amounts of cow shit and 93 percent humidity. Sounds like fun!
Someone beat me to it.
I like the Deep South, relative to my peers I am much more intelligent plus I kept my Northern pay scale while the cost of living significantly decreased.
I'll takr the corn, I mean maize, any day over that city crap. I've lived around corn all my life, I hope to keep it that way when I have to start a career.
But he can still SEE the beach, and more importantly, the lovely creatures who call it home.
Since we're on the subject, he seemed to enjoy the French Quarter.
How about the team's namesake?
Do the ACC officials get any say in this?
The only reason Pelini would leave is cash, lots of it!
My guess is that he is hoping to force Nebraska into a pay raise or extension, and really has no intention of leaving.
Of course this is pure speculation at this point.
I was going to term it a way to 'establish his market value,' but the idea is the same.
JeepinBen already posted this, but I think it bears repeating - he has two brothers who are assistant coaches. What better way to get them pub than interview and talk about them the whole time.
How do you think Mike Stoops ended up at Arizona? At some point brother Bob had to do some promotional work for lil bro.
I'm thinking of 2 names right now:
DT Kevin Williams
CB Charles Jackson
Maybe Pelini will have an hour long show on a network to tell everyone he's taking his screaming to South Beach?
having a chat or two with Mr. Pelini about his potty mouth. Pelini might be feeling unloved at the moment in Big Red Country.
This is turning out to be an interesting year for coaching changes.
This is also pretty interesting, if true. Tuberville hasn't been at Ole Miss more than two years, and Edsall seems like a eastern football kind of guy.
Tuberville is at Texas Tech. Houston Nutt is at Ole Miss.
D'oh! Nice big fat fail on my part. Thanks for the correction.
No problem. Your point remains valid as this is his first year at Texas Tech. Although he does have a good resume with Auburn before his current gig.
and Edsall seems like a eastern football kind of guy.
In that part of Florida he'd fit right in. Every second person you meet on the east coast of Florida is from New York, New Jersey or Connecticut.
If you're Nebraska, you have to wondering.
It seems to me that a successful coach at Nebraska would be one of the most admired men in the entire state. I don't think being the Miami(YTM) coach is quite the same thing. Add to that Nebraska's tradition...
I am sort of loving all of the high profile coaching changes - takes some of the heat off of us for a few days.
It is rather refreshing to read about the changes at Florida, Miami, and Pittsburgh and then to read about a future rival having conversations. It seems as though wolverine fans have to constantly be wearing a suit of armor to deflect all the crap that comes our way.
The only way this gets better is if Tressel announces his retirement and D-bagtonio is picked to replace him. If I believed in Santa I know what I would ask for.
I'd be surprised if he left Nebraska unless he thinks he has a better chance to win an MNC and/or given more leeway at Miami. They certainly can recruit the athletes he likes for his defense, and maybe he sees a ceiling of some form at Nebraska with Osbourne at the top.
wow. Dumb, in my opinion.....but then again, I'd rather coach in a stadium that has and will continue to sell out until the end of time itself....
Than Miami, with a high-school size audience. But that's just me.
The Nebraska AD seems to have a lot of tension with Pelini, but I didn't think it might be enough to drive Pelini to talk to other teams. Isn't Pelini an alum? This seems incredible.
Pelini went to Ohio State.
If Pelini goes for an interview, wouldn't you just fire him on the spot as the AD? I mean, Nebraska is a top notch football program and if Pelini is even going to entertain the idea then why keep him.
That move worked out well for Boston College...
You know, I think the fans here at Tech are actually praying for this since they're all still butthurt over Leachgate. You think our fanbase is whiney? Spend a day in Lubbock.
... moving to anyone outside of the Big10 would be good news for us next year.
It'd be a step down and a foolish move IMO. Of course, the ACC is weaker than the Big 10 though.
If Miami manages to snare Pelini I'd be scared but he has a great program going on in Nebraska and he'd be foolish to leave.
Seems that Tom Osbourne has not given that permission, nor has it been asked.
He's got 2 brothers who are coordinators. Maybe he's going to advocate for his brothers?
Pelini already has a job that is a better job than the one in Miami. Nebraska is in a better conference, the chances of winning the NC are probably the same in either program, and Nebraska fans support the team a lot better than Miami fans do. As someone who loves living in Florida, especially during the winters: I do think Florida is a better place to live, but I just don't see the Miami job as providing nearly the stability and prestiege that the Nebraska job does.
If Pelini moves now and wins the NC at Miami, there will always be questions about what "compromises" he had to make to do it there. If he wins one at Nebraska, he will be celebrated as all that is good about college football. As for those who would like to see Pelini leave NU and make Michigan's road easier, I can see your point. That being said, I would rather have a strong Nebraska team help provide the Big Ten with one more good team at the top and the depth it needs to kick the SEC's rule-breaking asses.
Assuming that both Michigan and PSU make it all the way back, a top four of Michigan, OSU, Nebraska, and PSU would be as good or better on a regular basis than Bama, Florida, LSU, and Auburn. Wiscy, Iowa, and (gasp) MSU would be as good as or better than South Carolina, UGA, and Arkansas. If Tennessee makes it all the way back, it will probably be at the expense of Arkansas or South Carolina, but there is no guarantee it will happen. At any rate, the comparison is looking a lot better than it did three years ago.
So, really, the Big Ten is poised to once again be the best conference in college football. There are a lot of "ifs" involved, but it is doable. And a strong Nebraska is going to be a very important piece in the puzzle.
rich rod is john cusack
The Canes have never had big crowds (except for big games against FSU or ND) and have always had crappy facilities. It doesn't matter though when you can walk a few blocks and round up enough talent to field a quality D-1 team.
Larry Coker won a national title at Miami. If Pelini wants to win he'll have a much easier time doing it at the U than he would in Lincoln.
Something about Pelini is unsettling to me. I swear that he seems more like the perfect tOSU coach or even MSU, but not Miami.
I was thinking about the history of Nebraska football as I remember and keep coming back to the Peter/Phillips era. Pelini teams haven't had legal problems yet and he was a great DC and seems like a solid coach, but I just get a tOSU vibe from the guy.
Given that we have to start playing Nebraska every year, I could live with this.
