    I won't start calling for anyone's head yet, but the coaching staff is definitely not getting it done right now. Bad playcalling (the rollout with Cody only worked once all day long - the first time they ran it), they abandoned the run, etc.

    Oh please, this team shows 500% improvement over last year and you want to start seeing heads roll? Grow up.

    On the bright side, not a single direct snap all game.

    C'mon, a little premature aren't we? Sure today was frustrating beyond belief and the coaches blew it, but there are not going to be any major changes. Let's not be a bunch of knee-jerk buffoons.

    I think "Time to start getting rid of some of the fans" would be a more appropriate title for this thread...

    One of the things I take pride in, is the fact that we "Buffs fans" are not at all like Husker fans.

    We need to stop being like the Husker fans. Give Hawk a little while to get his recruits in his system. Be patient instead of demanding we fire every coach and, once again, start over... We're not Husker fans and we need to stop that ****.

    You know it's not the coaches it's the players that suck. The coaches try but look what they have to work with. :thumbsup:

    It must really suck to lose to a team of players that suck. Clearly any team that happens to is not fit to make a claim to a shot at the national championship...

    No husker fans were calling for coach firings before the end of the second season. So feel free to elaborate on your statement or else STFU.

    We gotta give them time as we have a very young team and Hawk still has some rebuilding to do.

    I would like to see him take fewer risks, though.:sad1:

    I think this is fair, fewer risks...

    We have to think of this like 'a political party'. You don't always agree with every agenda item, but on the whole if you agree with the direction you just gotta go with the good and bad decisions, and hope they learn from the bad before it costs more than it did today.

    I like Hawkins, and I like the direction the program is going.

    Given what Callahan was trying to do, and consdering his hire was not incestual at all, I think that most Husker fans were actually pretty patient with him.

    And actually most people I talk to now about it only think he needs to be fired because after you have a year like we've had (getting blown out by almost everyone), you need a new body in there just because you're players have probably lost some confidence in coach. But most people I talk to about him, don't think he's a bad coach, they just think he's not the right fit here in "Stincoln."

    I agree though, i think y'all need to have a little more patience with Hawk. He's been a winner everywhere he's been. Let him do his thing.

    Where Cally probably sealed his doom was not firing Cosgrove, he showed more loyalty to Cos then to the University, I think that is unacceptable anywhere.

    I totally agree with you, but at the same time I have this strange feeling that he is going to be given another year. The only way this happens is if he fires pretty much everyone of his assistants and hires new ones. I just don't see him staying if that happens. They may put him in a position where he's told
    "Your going to do this and if you don't like it quit!"

    How much luster does Dr. Tom lose if he retains Throatslash and then he piddles around again next season finishing below KU and Mizzou?

    Great point. He would lose a ton of faith from the locals and people would start questioning him then and I don't think he's going to let that happen. Callahan and him hate one another so I think it's all she wrote for Cally. The next coach that comes in is going to have enough talent to turn things around fairly quickly IF he does things correctly.

    but, here is an interesting scenario, say you guys beat us, and then go to a bowl, the one in Houston, against a Conference USA opponent and then you guys win, Cally wins 3 straight to finish the season including a bowl win. Not too many coaches get canned after that.

    The point remains, that ya'll just need to have a little patience. Hawk will be fine.

    Look at it this way - at least we are not stuck with a **** for brains coach like Callahan.
    What's this? His 4th year and his biggest accomplishment was putting up a big score on mighty KSU. Nebraska will never get anywhere with him, and they just gave him a contract extension! Give Hawkins some time - let him have a few recruiting classes of his own. This year was a big improvement over last year, and who but some stupid red neck assholes who wear corn cob ***** hats say we can't beat their ****ty little team?

    Very interesting scenario, but don't put anything past us after firing Solich and having him finish the way that he did. I really don't know if anything will keep Callahan here. Unfortunately we will run into a situation where if the Huskers do beat the Buffs and win their bowl game it's very hard to fire Callahan and then find someone decent that wants to come in and try to live up to the expectations that Husker fans put forth. We could end up in another situation like before where we had to take someone other than our first choice. I don't want to do the experiments and "let's just see" anymore. It's a difficult situation.
