I'm surprised it happened at all coming off 9-3, but especially this quickly.

Nebraska now fired TWO coaches after nine win seasons. WTF?

And wow Optik I never knew, apparently I had joined one month before you. We are like lifers here, ten years in next fall.

I understand the frustration of being stuck in 9-win purgatory, but Nebraska football, like Michigan football and Notre Dame football, is a relic of a bygone era. Demographic shifts away from the Midwest and ever-expanding TV contracts don't bode well for a return to glory.

I never really cared for Pelini. I thought he was kind of a douche. But he probably did as much as could have been reasonably expected. Unless Nebraska hires the next Urban Meyer, I don't see their fortunes dramatically improving.

I agree with this. Those schools were great during a different time. Even Tennessee is having a rough time getting their crap together.

Nebraska never had in-state talent. They recruited nationally, like UT. Mike Rozier was from NJ, etc.

Nebraska expects to win championships and I don't blame them.

They always had a lot of guys from Florida during their heyday, too. Kids used to go to schools like Nebraska to get on TV, but they don't have to anymore. They can stay close to home and still be in the spotlight every week.

If I'm not mistaken, it took Tom Osborne about 10 years to really kick Nebraska into gear, didn't it? I think Nebraska knew that while Pelini could get 8 to 10 wins a season, he was never going to take the team to the level of Meyer and Ohio State, or even Wisconsin and Michigan State, and therefore he was sent walking and Nebraska leaves themselves looking for another hope and a prayer.

Osborne followed Bob Devaney, who made the program elite. He won back-to-back NCs in 70 and 71. Osborne inherited a 9-2-1 team in 73. They were already in gear when Osborne started.

True. Nebraska fans believe that another Tom Osborne or Bob Devaney is all that is needed for them to return to glory.

I think it is harder now. But I do believe the HC is the most critical for the success of a team.

Not surprised at this move. Pelini did not advance the status of the Nebraska football program during his tenure. He underachieved according to expectations. Sad part is he had time to get back on track and was not able to.
