    I know, I know..... this is a Buff board, please indulge me..... a well written article that points to the fractioning of NU athletics from TO to the common fan. This experiment with the WCO and Cally is coming with a hefty price, the ties being broke are of the same capital that built the program. Steve Petersen is risking the foundation of NU for the sake of change. Does it really need to be this way?

    enjoy. http://www.dailynebraskan.com/media...Out.Of.Nu.Football-2735480.shtml&mkey=2246919

    This IS a CU board.... but fell free to post any negative articles on Nebraska, and in particular Bill Callahan.


    Maybe Bill is doing the right think here.... maybe Bill doesn't want Steroids in the program :wink2:

    Hey Jason Peter and Joel Mackovicka, you really want to know why? BECAUSE BILL CALLAHAN AND STEVE PEDERSON ARE ROYAL ASSHOLES!!!

    The two are made for each other. Bill Callahan always has some assholness in him. everything from calling his Raiders the "dumbest team in america." to the changing of a tradition, to the fighting of his players in both Oakland and Lincoln, to the throatslash and the ****in hillbillies, and now this.

    Bill Callahan is a disgrace and karma is gonna catch up to him real soon. I hope fusker fans realize what an ass they have for a coach.

    Now, obviously I am not a NU fan, but I am a fan of loyal people. This guy lived and breathed NU sports. He was a fixture since 1984 with the NU sports medicine group and gets tossed aside like used trash.

    Yep. NU will get whats comming to them if they stick with Cally and Pederson. I will love seeing the fall, but with a heavy heart because obviously the fall will come at the price of the long time loyal fans and employees.

    On the good side for them, the fall isn't as far down as it used to be....:cool:

    I don't think we can judge on this.... there may be a valid reason that Cally fired this guy and we just don't know. What IF he gave steroids to kids? We just don't know and If I were Cally, would I make that public? No way.

    If that is indeed the case, then Coach "Mantits" Hawkins is nipping at his heels! :thumbsup: :smile2:

    It's not all that unusual for a new head coach to not want to retain staff members from the previous regime ... what is a bit unusual is that Cally waited until after his third year at NU to ****can the head trainer.

    Let's not forget that our own former heatrainer left rather suddenly less than a month before the start of fall camp last year. I don't have any inside info on the reason for that, but I thought the timing to be rather unusual, and I don't think it's a stretch to speculate that it had something to do with differing philosophies regarding injuries, training regimens, etc. The same could be true in NU's case. Cally may just want his own guy in there ... someone who agrees with his philosophy regarding sports medicine treatment ... and maybe he waited because he didn't think he could get rid of a trainer who had been in the fusker "family" fopr so long right away.

    I don't know, that looks like it is more catered to the fusker fans. They can pat themselves on the back and say what a good choice that was made in letting Solich go.

    I liked the bit about Peter offering the fusker players $1,000 to take Ken Dorsey out of a game against the U. Not only is it Buddy Ryan/Marty Schottintheass scumbaggery at it's worst, but I'm pretty sure the payment would have been an NCAA violation... :lol:

    I don't see anything wrong with what Hawkins said about the player's mom complaining of not enough time off (the kids getting a free education).

    What I do think is wrong is Bill Callahan calling his players dumb, giving throatslash gestures, and dumping people that are part of the tradition and it's their lives.

    Forgive Nub fans for just trying to dump on Hawk. The programs are going through two different paths right now. Nubs coach is trying to get rid of the great history of the storied Nub program. Whereas we may not have quite the history that they do, but our coach is actively trying to embrace this history. Our coach is trying to get the former players and coaches involved in the program, where their coach is pissing the former players off. I predict in two years when both programs have 8 or 9 win seasons, Fusker fans will admit to themselves that they wish they had a little "Hawk Love".

    I was thinking that his journal entry for November 23, 2001 would make for some particularly interesting reading. :smile2:

    this guy put Lucky in the hospital are you kidding? hey what everry makes you sleep at night husker fans.

    More likely Cally was sick of this guy telling him guys werent ready to go when he though they were, head coaches are notorious on the college level for over working players, I would bet thats where the friction came over the past few seasons and why this guiy was pushed out of the stafff and eventually fired.

    As for the mannet of his firering it sounds like a lot of other stories that come out of NU there days, chicken-****.

    Cally was the wrong hire, bad move from the start, bad move fireing solich with out a replacement plan, bad move going with a desperation hire after everyone else said no.

    He was not even on the list. he fell from the sky when fired from da raidas and SP was out of names... I dont blame these woes on him, he was simply looking for a job, once hired he had a job to do and he had a tough one, retool a 5 time NC offence that was behind the ages with a rabid following is as tough of a position to be in as there is in CFB. I agreed with the Solich firing, I dislike how it was done and how the AD continues to come off consistantly as an ass. The only salvation will be he is gone with this staff should change be made again. He has made his bed and should change be forced again it will be an entire overhaul of the program not in the sense of the scheme they will run but from a personnel standpoint. the next AD and FBHC will be tied to NU's past, the modern changes will stick but the faces will be more familar. of course this is IMO only.

    It could have had something to do with having the worst offensive line in the Big XII for 2 out of the past 3 years as well.

    The "pipeline" is or was broken, rusting and in need of repair. The strength and conditioning or lack there of at Nebraska was most obvious in the offensive line not only under Solich but under the current regime as well. I don't think BC is the guy that will bring Nebraska back and I don't think Solich was either. The big twelve is and will continue to be Texas and OU and then a bunch of mid-level teams for at least a few more years. CU has as much a chance at dominating the North division as anyone in a couple of years. I hate to say it but even KSU could be a player in the North division in a couple of years. Its a sad era in Big XII football.

    The article specifically says that's untrue. Clearly, none of us know if it is or not, but he seems pretty adamant that it's not.

    Whatever the case, this is no longer your father's....sorry, pappy's beloved NU program. It's changed, for better or worse, probably a lot of both. As someone who grew up as a Husker fan, I view it with some sadness because it was always somewhat of a special program in a lot of ways. But as a diehard Buff fan now, I gotta say, I'm not losing any sleep about The Guppy (what is it with Callahan and his incessant movement of his lower jaw that makes him look like a fish out of water???) running that once proud program into the dirt.
