The bad thing to think about is that Nebraska generally tends to lean toward defensive minded HC's.
They have the money and the attitude to pay Narduzzi big time!
In the SEC, a guy like Kirby Smart could go from his $850K at Alabama to a $2.5 mil in the SEC. He is likely holding out to replace Saban at big $$$.
It might be possible that new head coach who has never been a head coach, like Narduzzi, starts at Nebraska for more than Dantonio makes at MSU...
I think the Izzo football coach thing was a crazy diversion that distracted a few clueless reporter(s) (perhaps only one?) away from the actual process that was in fact pursuing Dantonio as Plan A and a few others as Plan B.

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day.
Since hiring Bob Devaney in 1962, Nebraska has hired four coaches. All but Pelini were from the offensive side. If they end up with a head coaching vacancy, I doubt they'd go after Narduzzi. They'd want a proven head coach. I think Narduzzi could end up being a successful head coach, but it's too risky for a program that's just gone through some problems after giving a fiery defensive coordinator his first head coaching job.
precisely: because that's EXACTLY what they just did....think about it. Osborne went out and got the flavor of the month and it has not worked out. This will be VERY evident after they get rolled again in their bowl game by 20+.
So yes, I agree with Pervis in that they won't hire a defensive minded first timer, because they just did that and it failed.
One important thing they need to ask themselves is: who else is out there they could hire away that IS established? List is pretty short right now that's for sure. You dont' want to be the last one at the dance and right now that would be the case after Tennessee makes their choice. My take on Pellini: good football coach who is also a dime a dozen bully. Kids see through that and arent' willing to lay it all on the line for him when it really counts because he is a dick and disrespects them. He isn't long for Lincoln IMO.
The reason that I don't watch much pro sports anymore is that it has become nothing more than a money grab. I hate the feeling that college football is becoming the same.
Well, now Pellini is boned. Tenn job is filled, new AD coming in and he's gonna get railed in the bowl game. Maybe he'll like Cincinnati so we can keep Narduzzi?
Nίκη για MSU
I laughed when I saw $80 face value on a Spartan football ticket. What a waste.
it is, but we call it ohio.
It failed? They beat everyone they needed to beat to get the the BTCG in their 2nd season in the league. Yeah they got rolled by a team they'd beaten earlier but if that's failure, what happened in E.L. this year?
you know....if Bo wasn't such an egotistical TOOL, that would be a pretty solid idea. That job would be about his speed truthfully. He could recruit the SHIT outta Cinci and Ohio in general. Being an Ohio guy it would be somewhere he could stay for 10 years or more and selectively and carefully bump up to his next job. No shame in making a mil per year and running a successful mid major like that. I always felt the Husker job was more than he could handle. As I said earlier, after he loses the bowl game by ALOT the wolves will be at his heels even more
If he would tone it down, chill the fuck out and treat his players better I think the fans and alums of UNL would embrace him. However, he really can't help himself. So...........he will wallow in misery next season until they fire him after the season.

uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...............YEAH, it failed man. Ask any husker fan, alum or player right now if they had a 'successful' season after getting rolled by 40 ish in the BTCG......it was Rose Bowl or bust and they busted: big time. BTW: they didn't 'beat' us and you know it so stop trolling. As for what happened in EL this year, what about it? We're talking about douchebag Pellini and UNL not MSU.
Ferentz seems a tad bit pricey at $3.8M and Dantonio is a bargain at $1.9M.
I too feel that the league is being watered down.
With the expansion I would like the conference play all their games against other conference teams.
It would increase ticket sales and avoid paying patsies a million to play in half empty stadiums. This would eliminate padding a mediocre team's record to make them eligible to play in a meaningless bowl while losing money for the team/conference just to make a coaches record more impressive to increase their pockets.
Tell Hollis and the other 11, soon to 13 AD's who get those checks that are in excess of $12M every year. Hollis has looked across the landscape and he doesn't see small fry like us coming up with the millions in donations to his department's accounts.
That is why the Big Ten has expanded and will continue to grow to 14 and possibly 16.
There are major donors in the SEC that allow coaches like Saban, Miles, Spurier, Beilema, Richt, Pinkel, Sumlin, Jones and probably Malzahn to get in excess of $2M per year and almost always bigger budgets for assistants.
Why? Is he going to Dollywood?
Vim -- noun: robust energy and enthusiasm : VITALITY
Ferentz is getting $3.8M?? I'll take Dantonio for half the price at $1.9M any day. Hell I'd take Dantonio with even money.
Will Tieman's weekend College hoops radio show (produced earlier in week when Will was sick so Scott Moore also subbed as he did for the UAPB game) had a short clip with Drew Sharp about Bielema's departure. Sharp said it was over tB1G's tendency to not compensate assistant coaches enough. Drew did give Dantonio a few props for succeeding in getting MSU to pony up more compensation last year for his assistants.

Not playing patsies would decrease ticket sales for the B1G...
