Bye Bye Bill

It did not take long for the NU athletic department to post a change to it's web page this morning. After all, everyone around here has known for some time that the head coach would not be around after seasons end. Now the dark days are behind them and they can move forward to find a new lamb to ready for the sacrificial feast and they (by they I mean the big red faithful) really have no one to blame but themselves.

That is not to say that BC was the right coach for the big red N, he tried to implement a system that was completely foreign to the land of corn and it failed repeatedly. Some say it was to complex.....does that mean the players were too stupid to grasp it? Others were unhappy because it was not a ball busting, run down the middle, right up the ass of the opponent type of offense. And the defense, well suffice it to say that in many of the stores around here they sent back all of the blackshirt jerseys (they were black) and ordered pink ones.

At the end of September the coaching staff announced a simplified defensive game plan, an effort to get back to the basics. That didn't work, they got their red ass kicked all over the place as the other teams rolled up 226 points in the next 5 games, the worst a 76 - 39 pasting by KU.

So the bottom line is that there will be a new head coach in huskerland. And you, the local media and all of you big red fanatics helped pave the way by chumming the waters with all of your whining and rantings. It had to be almost impossible to maintain some semblance of order on the team with all of the inner turmoil being blended with the actions of an overactive, immature, noxious group of supporters. Grow up, this is not the first team to go through this, just look at Arkansas. Hell, maybe you all can get the Nutt man to go from hogs to corn, then you too could have a headline like Nutt chooses Dick over Johnson.
