    Excellent post my man! That OWH article by Chatelain bolsters your view points! After the A&M game my thoughts were “Watson’s Got To GO! Look at OSU they brought in a new O-coordinator and have excelled beyond their wildest dreams. All the analyst called this year a rebuilding year for the Cowboys, instead they are bowl bound. And all of the sudden Auburn doesn’t look to stupid for hiring the Iowa State coach with a lopsided losing record. That’s because he can lead a staff whereas Bo Pelini cannot.

    Pelini is not a CEO type head coach capable of organizing and leading a staff. He is a defensive coordinator. He is not smart enough to LEAD a coaching staff. Like you said, how much sense does it make to start a rusty and injured freshman QB in a championship game and then not yank his ass out after all those mistakes.

    Cody Green makes one mistake and they don’t hesitate to yank him out of the game. Cody Green got sent a message last night “Boy, you will never be our QB at Nebraska!”

    Alright, I do have a problem with some of your previous postings where you state that Bo Pelini is a “good” or even “great” head coach. Bo Pelini is just a good player motivator, but he is not a good head coach. There is a big difference between the two. Bo Pelini only knows one side of the ball and he has no clue on how to organize and lead a coaching staff. He is light years from ever becoming a good head coach.

      Husker83: Pow! Great post! I really like your observations, critique and comparisons. As for me being wrong about Pelini being a good head coach… His record after two years speaks for itself. But I do understand what you are saying about his lack of “CEO” abilities. This is only his second year; hopefully, he will learn and improve in the areas you mentioned. He already is making strides in the temperament department. He also did not hire Watson–he inherited him. That was a Dr. Tom decision. Dr. Tom thought it would be too much of a change to throw in a new head coach, new defense and new offense all at the same time–can’t argue with that. But now is the time to make the change on O. Bring in the best O-coordinator they can find. They should also bring in the best QB coach they can get: A QB coach with a record of developing NFL caliber QBs. By doing this the Huskers will be in a better position to land the topflight QBs and WR prospects. Top QB and WR prospects are not interested in coming to a program that doesn’t have a record of developing NFL talent in those areas.

      We are talking about the future here! It would be program suicide if Nebraska (Dr. Tom) does not make the right moves here.

    A lot of players are not happy about things. Changes are sure to happen.

    “Bring in the best O-coordinator they can find. They should also bring in the best QB coach they can get: A QB coach with a record of developing NFL caliber QBs.”

    Just curious, are you suggesting they bring in one coach, or two?
