Living in Huskerland I tend to peruse their message boards to keep informed on the team so I can at least converse somewhat in depth with collegues and friends. Apparently they fired (errr, "didn't renew the contract") of their DC yesterday. Reading through the coments on the Corn Nation post I found these gems by one of their users. In all fairness he got called out, but at the same time their fans are pretty darn delusional about their program nowadays.
The other guy to consider is Michigan’s Don Brown. We can buy him out no problem, and who would rather work for Harbaugh? No one. Michigan is a lesser program than ours. Get that guy in Lincoln and start making some championship defenses. We all know he’d look good in Husker Red.
If Riley’s smart he’ll go get Venables but I’d be okay with either Venables or Brown.
As for Don Brown, there is literally nothing that Michigan can offer him that we can’t. In fact we can offer him more. We’re Nebraska, while they’re just some overrated program with a psycho head coach. Our defense should be the best in the country every year, so go get Don Brown. Steal him from Michigan. Offer him more money. We shouldn’t just throw up our hands and say "Oh well, it can’t be done. They’ll never leave where they are. Why should we even try?" That’s bullshit. Complete, utter f—-ing bullshit. This is the Blackshirt Defense we’re talking about. Why aren’t we getting the best?? Every time someone argues against making progress it’s like you’re spitting in TO’s face.
Seriously, it’s time for our program to nut up or shut up.
You guys think Brown would go for it??? He makes a compelling case. /s
EDIT: Guys, this is all in good fun, some light internet ribbing. Of course we have fans like this, most fan bases do.
