Expectations were too high to begin with when he rolled into the new conference imo, but the team has done some good things and won some tough games along the way. The teams' 2012 finish wasn't solid.. I think thats what sticks in peoples craws the most from the Husker faithful I've talked with. A lot of resentment for how the team got rolled in the conference championship game and then gave up the ghost in the bowl game.
They might be able to do better, but theres room to do a lot worse
They definitely didn't impress in that bowl game. Can't say I watched a lot of Husker football outside of that one.
Yeah, win or loose they need to make a solid 4qtr game of it this year or we might hear about pitchforks and torches in Lincoln.
Does the AD matter, has Dr. Tom commented on Bo? How much stroke does Osborne still have at Nebraska?
Osborne's public image is still at demi-god status and I'd bet its the same in the BOD conference room.. from my understanding what he's got going there is a messy political campaign with the media more than anything. Anything I've heard regarding a publicly address/comment about it was through an Osborne press release that was pain-jane Bo's back next year.
The thing thats funny to me in all this is that the reasons the media, fan base and players support/supported him in the 1st place have now been spun by the media to the very reasons hes being crucified for at times. The Nebraska alum couple from Kansas that stay with us for games are pissed with some of the performances, but he brought up that dating back to being the interm HC (preLSU) stint there wasn't anybody that didn't want him there. Doesn't forgive coaching brain farts, but everyone got what they wanted and like spoiled kids now complain that the picture they painted for themselves was more of an abstract than life art.
One thing thats stuck with me from talking with my buddy is he had mentioned a couple of the position coaches need to get canned more so than Bo, but I can't remember which ones he was hot about.
