Happer & Stephens: September 22nd, 11am

  • Shawn Eichorst’s firing is about more than one loss to Northern Illinois
  • Eichorst’s lack of ability to connect to coaches, players, fans and media played a huge factor.
  • RIP Eichorst 3000. You will be missed.

Oh, by the way—-THERE’S A FREAKING GAME TOMORROW FOR NEBRASKA

Hello, anyone out there? It’s been all Eichorst—as the conversation should be—but there is a game tomorrow against Rutgers at Memorial Stadium that seems to be forgotten all of a sudden. Does Nebraska come out firing to support their head coach, or do they come out flat as they have the majority of the season?

Who are some realistic, possible candidates to take the new A.D. job? / Shut Up Sipple

Trev Alberts at UNO remains a popular name for who Nebraska might go to, but is anyone else of interest? Dennis Dodd mentioned possibly looking at TCU’s AD and having him bring Gary Patterson with if Mike Riley is not retained as coach….now that would be interesting…and he just convinced Jamie Dixon, a fantastic long-time coach at Pitt, to coach TCU basketball and has them on right track

Is Nebraska going in an endless circle, or do you believe they can get back to national relevancy with the next AD hire and (potential) coaching hire?

  • National articles from Yahoo! Sports’ Pete Thamel and CBS Sports’ Dennis Dodd help to view what people outside the Nebraska bubble think about the program, and not surprisingly, they both think Nebraska is not where it used to be and likely will never return to the glory days of the 90s
  • Husker fans will likely never give in to that belief, and will always demand dominance…but is that part of the problem? It is going to be tough to attract a great coach when the demands of fans are so high in a place that simply put, is not easy to recruit to

Should Tom Osborne have any say in the next A.D. at Nebraska?

Osborne took over in 2007 for Steve Pederson and hired Darin Erstad, Bo Pelini, and Tim Miles, but was replaced by Eichorst in 2014 when he decided to step down….at 80 years old and a few years removed, should he have any say in what happens next?

What’s Mike Riley and the coaching staff’s status going forward this season?

  • They feel like ‘lame duck’ coaches, but anything can happen if they find a way to win the West, winning all games on schedule except maybe one of the Wisconsin/Ohio State/Penn State trifecta, but is that possible?
  • We learned yesterday of a ton of injuries that Riley and the team are dealing with, and it just feels like a steep hill that you never really gain traction on, as this season goes on. What a tough situation for the players and coaches to be in. We envy none of them in this circumstance
