    BREAKING NEWS: Nebraska press conference scheduled for 9:30 a.m.



    Nebraska Interim Athletic Director Tom Osborne has scheduled a press conference for 9:30 this morning on the sixth floor of Memorial Stadium's Press Box.

    He will address the state of the football team, including the position of head coach, currently held by Bill Callahan.

    Osborne has repeatedly said he plans to meet with Callahan and the Nebraska football staff on Nov. 24, the day after the regular-season finale at Colorado.

    The Buffaloes rallied from a 38-24 halftime deficit to pin a 65-51 setback on the Huskers, who finished at 5-7.

    OMG! Booger might be their HC!!! :wow: He's keeping his job at the least from the looks of it.

    Osborne Schedules Saturday News Conference

    Football Coaching Status Expected to Be Addressed

    POSTED: 6:27 am CST November 24, 2007
    UPDATED: 7:55 am CST November 24, 2007

    OMAHA, Neb. -- Interim University of Nebraska-Lincoln Athletic Director Tom Osborne will hold a news conference Saturday morning at 9:30 a.m. Osborne is expected to address the Nebraska Cornhusker coaching situation.
    Earlier this week, it was expected Osborne would meet with the Husker Coaching staff Saturday morning, but that meeting may have taken place either last night, or somewhere other than Memorial Stadium.

    Saturday morning, Callahan met with offensive coordinator Shawn Watson, then Callahan left Memorial Stadium. Since then, Watson has been meeting with other members of the Husker football coaching staff.

    The Huskers finished their season Friday in Boulder with a 51-65 loss to Colorado. Nebraska finishes the regular season at 5-7, one win short of qualifying for a post-season bowl bid.
    The news conference will take place at Lincoln's Memorial Stadium. KETV NewsWatch 7 and KETV.com will provide live coverage.

    Too funny. All their boards are little bee hives right now. No doubt they are hitting every site they can find for any morsel before the actual announcement. :lol:

    Jebus Christo that would be some funny irony if they hired Watson.

    Isn't Booger the assistant HC? This may not mean he's got the HC job but just that Cally had to rush home and start packing before the lynch mob arrived so he told Booger to inform the staff that they were fired.

    If Booger gets the HC job it will be like Christmas for us!! :thumbsup:

    Next best thing to keeping Callahan would be Watson becoming HC.

    Re: NU Press Conference at 930 cst

    Got that right!

    I was thinking about it a little more and I think it's highly unlikely anyone on the current corn staff gets the HC job. Osborn is too smart for that. He'll make the "time to head in a new direction" speach and "begin a rigorous search for the next HC" making sure that they "get the right fit". I think it's going to take 2-3 more weeks even with all the HC hunting Osborn has already done behind Cally's back.

    Booger is probably going to be the interim HC for the bowl game if he's the ass't HC right now...oh wait...no bowl game. :lol:

    I think Osborn will try to bring in a big name. He might fail like they did last time, but he'll try.

    "Solly" on bighuskerfan.com is reporting this:

    I didn't think this rumor deserved its own thread...but I believe this "Solly" character initially broke the firing of Pederson news.

    Yep, Solly has some great inside information. He is batting damn near perfect with his stuff. It sounds like it is Pelini's to take. I expect at tops three current Asst. will remain on staff, maybe less. Rudolph sounds like he will stay, along with Wyatt and possibly.......get ready for this, Watson. He has struck Osborne as being a pretty good OC, and many believe that along with Ganz acting the part of a spark-plug over the last three games, Watson had a bigger say in the play calling. Should be an interesting week in Lincoln!

    After watching the LSU game yesterday and listening to Husker fans pining away for Bo Pelini, he is my hope and dreams for their next head coach :)

    Yeah, because of one game, Bo's defense's suck. A game that went into three overtimes. And faced probably the best 1/2 running back combo in the nation (with some key players hurt). Yeah, he must suck.:wow: Look at the big picture, and see where Pelini's defenses have been ranked over the years in the NCAA! My guess is that many opposing fans don't want Bo at NU. If he get's a decent OC, then things are really going to get going in Lincoln once again!

    Hmmm, they lost to a mediocre Arkansas team who might fire Nutt, they lost to Kentucky, they have looked average against Alabama who might have a worse offense then Colorado, and they needed a prayer to keep from losing to a three loss Florida team. This has all been done with a defense that was supposed to have as many NFL players not seen since Alabama's 92 team. So if you want him, you can have him, LSU(most overrated defense in the nation).

    Pelini is a GREAT DC, he can put a defense together like nobody's business. But let's face it, he's been on that 'up and coming' list for the last 6 or 7 years and no HC opportunities. There's a reason he's not a HC yet. He could turn out to be a great HC, or he could turn out to be the next Norv Turner LOL

    For those of you that can't get your arms around this, Pellini will be a major upgrade for NU. There defense will probably be 100% better next year (since they are currently last). The question is what kind of coach will he be? Will he have success and or sustained success.

    I for one welcome this change because the tougher the opponents are the better the test of our coaches metal is and hopefully the tougher our teams will be.

    I totally agree with you here. The only problem is I've heard some bad things about his recruiting style. He is not very friendly in person. :confused:

    That is apparently the knock on him. Rough around the edges but a genius. He's an NFL guy with only 5 years in the college game. Recruiting takes personality and salesmanship. Norm Chow has this problem too.

    He's very popular right now amongst the NU faithful so he'll get a long, long rope to hang himself with. Or not.

    Given the personality issue he better embrace the old players and a return of the walk on program if he really wants some additional respect.

    I just want to ask why CU fans don't like Watson? I like the guy. I don't want to see the guy as head coach, but i would like to see him retained in some sort.:thumbsup:

    Two words for you: bubble screen.

    Wait, seven more: six yard out on third and seven.

    I think with Callahan holding him on such a short leash we really never got to see what he would do in games.

    This should not be a celebratory day. Our Head Coach has been fired. I can not find myself to ever be in a good mood when one of our own is being shown the door regardless of his production. I don't think people realize how close this was to taking off. Really very close.

    And is walking away with 3.1 million dollars for his effort, which wasn't much. What was his record again against the Big 12?? Exactly. Not sad at all. Very excited about the possibility that the future now holds.
