What i’m hearing about Mickey, Rhule vs. Fickell, negativity moving forward, and the new hires

Can you give us one more year Coach Joseph?! Here’s what i’m hearing… MJ is trying to capitalize on the fact that he got us a win against Iowa and kept this team together. I’ve heard he’s asking for 7 figures and a 3 year deal. I tried googling things but that would make himContinue reading “What i’m hearing about Mickey, Rhule vs. Fickell, negativity moving forward, and the new hires”

Matt Rhule is our guy, so what are we getting?

We made this post back on 11/13 when we had been told by multiple media members and former players that he was our guy. We got lucky it stayed true, as there became numerous people starting to get anxious and thinking we were out of it with our top candidates. So many fans anymore areContinue reading “Matt Rhule is our guy, so what are we getting?”

Why i’m doubling down it’s Rhule so that I can be completely wrong in a few days

I want to start this post out by saying Trev has done a phenomenal job keeping this pretty buttoned up. No one really knows which direction this thing is going to go. But I do get more information than most, so I want to walk through how i’ve landed on Rhule still being the guy.Continue reading “Why i’m doubling down it’s Rhule so that I can be completely wrong in a few days”

Biggest on the field change and coaching odds

One of the things that has frustrated me over the past 5 seasons, is the fact that besides losing one score games, Nebraska basically has zero identity. It continued in 2022, and when things like that happen, it makes it really difficult to have success on Saturdays. If one of your friends that was aContinue reading “Biggest on the field change and coaching odds”

In fact, fans and media took is so far to say that it was going to take a few years to get rid of the “losing Riley culture”Continue reading “What the new HC will need to change immediately”

I dive into a little bit of what I think Nebraska needs to get back to where everyone wants us to be. 1 – Head CoachingContinue reading “Priorities for the coaching search”

My reaction to the Chinander firing

Well, down goes another UCF connection, as we learned on Sunday that Interim HC Mickey Joseph fired Nebraska and Scott Frost’s DC. First, let me go a bit “ugh” with this. Part of me just wonders what on earth we are going to accomplish doing this. As Alberts said, we fired Frost for the kidsContinue reading “My reaction to the Chinander firing”

My thoughts on the dismissal of Frost

Before we get into it, don’t forget we had two posts today! Our Friday toilet reading: https://herbieshangout.com/2022/09/16/friday-toilet-readings-9-16/ After the game this past Saturday, there was something weird in the air. The October 1st date was well known by everyone, but something was wrong. We had just lost to a team we paid 1.4 million dollarsContinue reading “My thoughts on the dismissal of Frost”
