Why Bo Pelini Should Stay As Coach

It seems everyone lately has been calling for Bo Pelini to be fired and I will admit I was one of them as well. After watching Nebraska play Michigan State I have a change of heart. I seen some good things in the loss that made me rethink his firing. Now Michigan State had the no.1 defense in the country and Nebraska did a good job moving the ball on them. The Cornhuskers never gave up and kept fighting. That is what you want to see in your football team. Bo Pelini was without Taylor Martinez which did not help either. Toss in five turnovers and that is a recipe to get beat in college football. At times this season Nebraska has not played well, but I think they are heading in the right direction. This s why a change is not necessary right now. Sticking the course in my opinion is the most logical choice. image

Nebraska Gets Rude Welcome To Big Ten In Form Of 48-17 Rout By Wisconsin

Nebraska did not expect a warm welcome to the Big Ten, so after the 48-17 rout by the Wisconsin Badgers they now know what to expect rest of the season. Early, it looked like Nebraska was ready to play, but that was just smoke and mirrors it seemed. Wisconsin quarterback Russell Wilson shredded the Cornhuskers defense with his feet and his arm. Nebraska really had no answers for Wilson all night long and the rout was on.

Taylor Martinez was suppose to help keep Nebraska in the game, but he struggled to hold onto the ball and threw three interceptions. When you are playing on the road those are mistakes that you just cannot make and win. This was not the way a Nebraska football team usually plays under Bo Pelini, but you have to give Wisconsin credit they came to play. Wisconsin is tough at home and they showed why they are a National Title contender once again.

Not all is lost for the Cornhuskers with this loss. They could win rest of there games and get to the Big Ten Championship against most likely Wisconsin. Unless they play better though the second possible match-up could be a rout as well.

Nebraska Cornhuskers Loaded And Ready For Big Ten

Big Ten play will begin in a little while and Nebraska cannot wait to tackle their tough schedule.When I heard that Nebraska Cornhuskers were heading into the Big Ten many different things went through my thought process. I was thinking are they crazy, but after thinking through everything Tom Osborne made a great move that will benefit the school and the football program. In the Big 12 Nebraska was not talked about like they had been in the past. This gives them a chance to be the big dog on campus once again. Many people do not think it will happen, but here is why it will and fairly quickly.

One of the biggest advantages the Cornhuskers will have is now a chance to recruit from a wider base of players than ever before. Nebraska has always been able to recruit, but joining the Big Ten will help them even more. Not that they really needed any help to begin with.

The Big 12 plays a pro style fast pace game and to be honest Nebraska does not have those kinds of athletes. They rather play smash mouth football and the Big 12 was getting away from that and they knew this, so they made a move at the right time. The Big Ten on the other hand does have some pro style offenses, but for the most part they are run first pass second just like Nebraska likes it. They probably know how to play that style of football better than anyone.

Going into the Big Ten is a natural progression as they will be able to do what they love best and that is to run, run, and run some more. They do not have to worry about too many teams scoring tons of points as the Big Ten offenses are not as complex, as you see in the Big 12. This was a perfect chance for the Nebraska Cornhuskers and Tom Osborne knew it. Will it be a cake walk for the Huskers? By no means, but they are on a more level playing field, and they get to run the type of offense Husker fans have seen for years. It will be a learning curve for the first year, but after that watch out!
