Nothing quite like failing upwards.

/assuming they're better than the Panthers?

This is a joke.

He gets credit because Baylor swept out most of the trash and DIDN'T get the years and years of probation their entire athletic department deserved?

Good luck in the NFT era, guy who can't coach football. Remember: Baylor is an easier place to recruit than Nebraska, and that's not changing anytime soon.

Rhule was clearly not cut out for the NFL. Maybe being back in the college game will work for him.
 
2022-11-26 4:41:13 PM  
So, 2 seasons and a buyout?

puffy999: Baylor is an easier place to recruit than Nebraska, and that's not changing anytime soon.


This is what Nebraska fans don't understand (amongst a lot of other things). High school kids don't want to come play in Lincoln anymore. It's not a top tier program, hasn't been for a long time, and has regressed terribly in the last 10 years.
Like I say in almost every Husker thread: TOMMY FRAZIER IS NOT WALKING THROUGH THAT DOOR (and especially Lawrence Phillips)
 
2022-11-26 4:46:40 PM  
And yeah, he turned around Temple. They became so good they couldn't beat anybody with a decent record.

hmmm, rhule found a job pretty quick, looks like

If Lawrence Phillips does that would be some damn powerful recruiting

Anton would probably be a better choice for a coach at this point. Proven results and a steely resolve.

Hey now, I remember when Al Golden became the coach of the Hurricanes. He brought them right back down to shiat again. Those Temple coaches are miracle workers.

He was the best football coach that Temple ever had.  For what that's worth...

tnpir: Rhule was clearly not cut out for the NFL. Maybe being back in the college game will work for him.


Silly question.

Will he make more coaching amateurs than he will in the pros?
 
2022-11-26 6:27:30 PM  
Yeah, but will he follow the Rhulebook?
 
2022-11-26 6:53:54 PM  

Incorrigible Astronaut: Yeah, but will he follow the Rhulebook?


According to his Facebook page, he's following all the Rhules.
 
2022-11-26 7:03:44 PM  
He's still cashing in for that one good season with Baylor. That was a down year for the Big12 and Baylor's out of conference schedule was a total joke (SFA, UTSA, Rice). Oklahoma was the only decent team in the Big12 and Baylor lost to them twice. And Georgia beat them by two scores in the Sugar Bowl. It was a solid season but it wasn't elite by any measure.

A third-string punter could probably get an NIL contract in Lincoln. Might just be free burritos at a taco truck, but you're in college so why the hell not?

You're all wrong - the Huskers broke the Eichorst curse by beating Iowa yesterday, for the first time since he fired Bo Pelini 7 years ago. (At the time he dismissed Bo beating them because "in the final analysis, I had to evaluate where Iowa was[as a program]")

The sky is the limit now - I'm sure I can expect another 30 years with 9 wins every year.

Yeah, I can't even THINK that without rolling my eyes. I am out of hope at this point and can't believe yet another coach/system will fix the problem.
 
2022-11-26 9:12:24 PM  
I don't fault Rhule for taking the money, but I sure as hell fault Nebraska for giving it.
Baylor has been on a tear the last decade developing all its sports not just football. Nebraska has been failing at the one and only sport it cares about. And Nebraska's recruiting appeal is zero. Also the big 10 is way harder than the corpse of the Big 12.

I would say their last big recruit was Suh and if I recall a big part of the reason he went the Nebraska was because they had a good engineering program. Otherwise he was staying on the west coast.

Ken VeryBigLiar: I would say their last big recruit was Suh and if I recall a big part of the reason he went the Nebraska was because they had a good engineering program. Otherwise he was staying on the west coast.


Yeah, Suh was probably the biggest name in recent history. But good coaches unlock an awful lot of potential from 3 star recruits. Trey Palmer was an absolute standout this year, and will definitely be playing on Sundays.

BlazeTrailer: If Lawrence Phillips does that would be some damn powerful recruiting


Brook Berringer's ghost would be even more inspirational.

tnpir: Rhule was clearly not cut out for the NFL. Maybe being back in the college game will work for him.


The NFL didn't work for Urban Meyer or Nick Saban either. The skills don't automatically cross over. Though admittedly, both of them had higher NCAA winning percentages when they went over-and-back-again.

I know Saban hated the fact that winning teams drafted later in the pros. He prefers college where he can guarantee being in the top-3 just about every year (except this one I guess).

I would have much preferred if they hired Mickey Joseph as the permanent head coach.

How many 8 year guaranteed contracts can one man fulfill two years of and still get another one? I seriously want to know so I can retire in 6 years instead of 24.

Al golden sucked. Miami ran him out of town then fought over money with lawyers. No way we ever see him on the field afain to accept an accolade during a tv time out.

I don't expect a team that's regularly competing for conference titles. We haven't even qualified for a bowl game in the past six years and are the only P5 team to have that ignominy. Let's first not be the national embarrassment anymore, then we can talk about conference titles as an expectation.

The Nebraska women's volleyball team has sold out every home game since 2001, reaching 300 straight games this season.

Together with Creighton, they set the regular-season volleyball attendance record at nearly 16,000 fans (which Wisconsin broke later in the season with an impressive 16,833 fans).

Nebraska fans appreciate all kinds of athletic excellence.

This is very true. I've been in sports bars in Omaha and Lincoln where every TV is on the volleyball game. Where the fans are wearing red and cheer. Volleyball fans in Nebraska are real and support the team.

Yeah, that's where I'm at.

I want to watch an offensive line not collapse like a deflating balloon every time the quarterback drops back.
I want to not feel my body physically cringe when 2-3 defenders miss their tackles.
Hell, I want to see the center reliably snap the ball to the QB without it hitting the turf.

The 21st-century ceiling for Nebraska football may well be 8-9 wins per season. There may be no path to a national championship no matter how much money the boosters contribute. That's fine. After the last decade of chaos I'd happily accept that.
