Nebraska fires AD

Have to assume the new AD will fire the coach.  BTW, I understand a former Michigan AD might be looking for work soon.

They made the right move firing Pelini. He was a prick to everyone that created a us versus them attitude in the team vs everyone else such as fans and administration. He let some guys get away with shady shit too. Plus never finishing a season without 4 losses. If you go to a Nebraska board none of them want Pelini back.

Riley was probably a dumber hire than us hiring Hoke.

be stuck at above average.  But if that's the case, you have to be willing to back the money truck up to hire a guy that's a proven commodity (a la Saban, Meyer, Harbaugh, etc) or a nearly can't-miss up-and-comer who has been wildly successful at smaller programs (a la Hermann, Brohm, Fleck, etc).

Bill Callahan was a bad NFL coach with no proven success in college and Mike Riley was good for a few years in Corvallis but was aging and on a downward trajectory, coming off his worst PAC12 season ever.

SMH.

This is like the contant Beilien debate.  If we ever fired him, we'd better be ready to back the money truck up, big time because that'd be the only way to upgrade (unless his age starts to become an issue with recruiting and his teams start getting worse, at that point, it'd be more reasonable to go for an upgrade).

would probably be a good idea simply from a program identity standpoint.  Right now, what the hell is Nebraska?  Why are they around?  They are geographically isolated from the rest of the conference.  They really don't bring anything to the table.  They aren't good.  They have no in-conference rivals.  They are kind of like the guy(me) at the party standing by himself in the corner because he literally has nothing to say to anybody. 

At least Frost would give their fans something to identify with.
