Mike Riley from Oregon State?




what a yawn inducing splash that is. Nobody saw that happen and their message boards are in full meltdown mode.

I'm surprised too. He's been at OSU forever except for a short stint with the Chargers.

Seems like a classic case of rushing to hire someone.......

Maybe they got lost on their way to get Scott Frost.

After all, you do get to Corvallis before you get to Eugene on I-5 coming from the Portland airport...

That is a head scratcher.

I don't like the hire, either. I don't think Riley's done enough convincing with Oregon State to lead one to believe he can lead Nebraska back to prominence. He's won and gone to bowl games, but where are the PAC-12 Champ Game appearances? PAC-12 titles? Especially coming off 5-7 this year. Seems like a big calculated risk by Nebraska's AD....

Nebraska should be able to attract a better coach than one that barely wins .500. They were better off sticking with Bo.

I was a bit surprised as well. But everything is in place for success at Nebraska with the right system. No idea if this guy can make it happen, though. Hard recruiting at Neb cause, well, they're in nebraska. I've been there the place is even more boring than Iowa.

You gotta realize where OSU was before he took that job and look at some of the players he has recruited and developed and gotten into the NFL. When we look at records we gotta look at the specific school, just look when Fitzgerald moves up from northwestern

Yep, I agree with you. This may turn out to be a great hire for Nebraska. Time will tell, just like everything else.

Yeah you just never know. Things could turn out well for Nebraska. In the seven seasons before Riley took over in 1997, they won only 1 game in 4 of those seasons. Needless to say they were bad and very bad. I the other 3 gthey won 2 games, 4 games and 4 games. While he only went 3-8 and 5-6 in his 2 seasons, he paved the way for Erickson to come in and take guys like Ken Simonton, Chad Johnson, T.J. Houshmandzadeh, and Jonathan Smith to the Fiesta Bowl and drill ND

Once upon a time Mike Riley was almost Head Coach at Alabama. I think he will do well at Nebraska.

This makes absolutely no sense. Hell, I'm not sure he's better than what they just fired.
