Sean Callahan (Husker Online)

-What was your reaction to Friday’s rumors of Nebraska trying to get out of the Oklahoma game?

-How similar are Indiana men’s basketball and Husker football in their struggles?

-Husker Online surveyed over 30 of the top high school coaches in Nebraska…what was their takeaway on the current talent level in the state?

A comparison of resumés of Husker football coaches against all levels of competition opens some eyeballs

-Arbitrary Analytics put together a comparison of all Husker football head coaches all-time, and how they did against all 4 tiers of college football, and it’s alarming to see how things have fallen..not just in the wins and losses, but also in points scored and points surrendered. Nebraska’s climb to being respectable might not be that far, but their path to elite is miles away

-Also, Richard Pitino wasn’t unemployed very long—he’s now the head coach at New Mexico. Tim Miles will have to wait for his turn again.

The Drive: October 5th, 3pm – Betting in Nebraska

DP & Stephens: May 22nd, 11am – Sloan and Osborne

  • Osborne Legacy – NFL player and Nebraska coaches problems with K-State

What If Wednesday: What if Tom Osborne stuck around a while longer and didn’t retire after the 1997 National Championship?

-We welcome producer Alex Baker back for the question of the week, and it’s a doozy. Osborne retired at age 60 after Nebraska won the 1997 National Championship, passing the team off to Frank Solich. It had been 3 titles in 4 years when Osborne retired. Now, we see older coaches sticking around for a while. Solich is in his 70s at Ohio….Bill Snyder coached into his upper 70s at Kansas State

-What would be different? Imagine if T.O. coached until he was 75….he’d still be coaching through 2012. How about that for a mindbender…
