    The rest of the story is that Iowa and Nebraska have only played 12 times since 1943. 6 of which were in Lincoln.

    Why? Because they are Nebraska?

    I'd say hire him, but we already have an ex-LSU defensive coordinator.

    My brother-in-law and my friend are big Nebraska fans and they're starting to get tired of him too.

    No, because the goal is championships, not being bowl eligible.

    I love hotheads, it's so easy to move them from the rational.

    And???

    I'm merely pointing out that the last time Iowa beat NB in Lincoln and Vandy won at UF, Adolph Hitler was leading Germany. Pretty similar to me.

    Not similar at all. How many times did UF play Vandy during that time? You are trying to make a point while comparing apples to oranges.

    A refs worse nightmare would be UF vs Neb. Could you imagine, flags would fly all day

    Thing is under Frank Solich and Bill Callahan, Nebraska fell off a lot. I think Bill Callahan gave them their first losing season in 3 decades(sounds familiar. lol). So him going 9-4 or 10-4 every season was a step up for them. Besides as bad as things are up there, he still went 8-4 using his 3rd string QB and losing a ton of players to injuries. The fans really want him gone due to those comments though. They fire him, Urban Meyer might scoop him up for his DC.

    If we're gonna play that game, I'm just happy Will helped us beat Missouri last year for the first time since 1966.

    No, but I believe we did have to waste a timeout against Auburn in 2011 to allow Muschamp to get it out of his system. An assistant had to talk to the refs and try to calm things down. Never saw anything like it before or since.

    Personally, I think it was a small miracle that they were elite for as long as they were. Things were changing through the '90s and recruiting kids to go into the plains was/is a pretty daunting task. I expect that the athletic big wigs are still holding onto the dream of past glories and Pelini will be given his walking papers. And the next coach will be about as successful.

    The main difference between Nebraska and UF is the natural recruiting advantage. We mostly need to avoid screwing up and we will get plenty of parts, although I am still befuddled over the lack of tall/fast receivers when compared to other teams around us.

    No championships, not even a BCS bowl appearance that I recall. Been there a lot longer than WM has been at UF. Good coach but not great.
