Dear Coach Callahan,

I have a lot to say to you. I'd like to know why your version of the West Coast Offense tanks when your team plays against tough competition. The problem about tonight is Missouri's defense isn't supposed to be tough. You made the Tigers' defense look like the Baltimore Ravens' defense. Coach, I think you rely too much on yards after the catch. I don't think your version of the West Coast Offense works in college football. Jerry Rice and Rich Gannon don't play for Nebraska. Open up the play book and get creative with both runs and passes.

You don't seem to be a good motivator, coach. I have not seen any leadership from players and coaches. What happened against Ball State? I know your team beat the little guy, whereas other teams have not, but you put me on the edge of sheer embarrassment. You scared the shit out of me, coach. A loss to Ball State would have been the worst loss in the program's history, and Nebraska has been playing football since 1890.

Can you please replace defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove after the season? I know he's your buddy, but we need an aggressive scheme on defense.

I thought you were progressing the program, but I am no longer sure. I've defended you to the point of getting blasted by other people. I've dealt with the shit because I thought you could turn around the program. Coach, I think you would make a great used car salesmen. You emphasize recruiting, and the team does have talent, but all Husker fans deserve better results on the field.

Coach, you just received a contract extension. Use the time you've bought yourself and make something happen. I'll be at the Texas A&M game in two weeks. I can't help but think I wasted more than $750 on two nights at the Embassy Suites, because our season is over, unless Missouri blows their biggest opportunity to win the North. I'm not counting on it.

Even then, why would it matter? Why travel to San Antonio if the team would get crushed by Oklahoma? That is not progress.

Sincerely, Big Red Ryan or Sam Hall or whatever

Bill,

You are doing great man! You are one of my favorite coaches. What you did with the Raiders was SWEET! Now you are taking the Cornhuskers to a new level too. Hope you are able to stay up there for a long time. If you do decide to move, you should consider coaching basketball - you'd make a great coach for the Jayhawks.

This season has been a total cluster****, and it's not even halfway over yet. Huskers will probably miss a bowl game, 2nd time under Callahan, and 2nd time in like 39 years...

...housecleaning is needed. At a minimum, Cosgrove. But Billy boy gets maybe one more season before he, Petersen, and the Chancelor need to go...


Man I hate this. Go Chiefs, for God's sake...

I thought it was stupid to give him that extension before the USC game, that game was a measuring stick of where this team stood with the Callahan players. Of course you tried to blast me for that thought, but that game ended up showing that his huskers were no where ready to compete with the top tier teams.

So, now you are stuck with a HC who runs such a complicated offense that your QB has to run over to the sidelines to get the entire play. Good luck with keeping any sort of roll going when a QB's eligibility is up with a system like that.

I think the program needs a little stability, I'd like to see Coz go myself although last year our run defense was nasty and we could get a pass rush when needed.

Either that was losing 2 DE's in the 1rst two rounds of the NFL draft or Coz forgot how to coach.

Sam Hall
10-07-2007, 03:14 PM
It's a combination of losing the entire defensive line and having players who don't know what's going on. Our defense is clueless. I thought our secondary would be better and we would have decent replacements on the defensive line. It proves that games are won and lost in the trenches. I've run out of patience with Cosgrove. I want an aggressive defense.

Callahan can hike his ass back to California and take his west coast offense with him. I want to run a spread offense that employs the misdirection.

kcfan82
10-07-2007, 03:43 PM
Hi hate the spread offense, I certainly don't want to run gimmick plays like Missouri and Tech.

I don't care if Tech and Missouri have both blown us out, running out of the shotgun on 3rd and goal at the one inch line is going to get you destroyed against teams like OU and LSU.

It's definitely time for a change, but at least if there is a new coach we aren't as talent depleted as Solich left us.

I'm still chuckling at Nebraska fans' assertions that their WRs were "licking their chops" at the thought of facing MU's true freshman CB. They got some yards, but they weren't against Gettis.

Missouri should make the Big 12 title game this year if they can beat KU in Arrowhead, I'm just saying personally I'm not a big fan of that style of offense...

It scores alot of points, but maybe because of it's nature it keeps your defense on the field and gives up alot of points too.

We've seen what they've done against Nebraska's defense and we know where the WCO offense has gotten us. We need a creative offense that is hard to defend. I want a dual-threat quarterback like Daniel.

I figure that'll kill us at some point. But there are so many weapons... I'm not sure there will be many times when we need to.

In short, I dont think we can go undefeated with this O... but we can do more than any Mizzou team I've ever watched.

If Missouris defense can keep up the way they played yesterday they have a shot at beating Oklahoma.

I remember sometime last year that running the shotgun on the goal line cost Pinkel in a game, and I think it may have been OU in columbia.

I'd like their offense alot more if they recruited a big back, and put in a different short yardage/goal line package.

Sure it made us look stupid last night, but our defense sucks ;)

The only really "sexy" jobs in the Big XII are Texas and Oklahoma. Nebraska won't get a big name coach, but that's not a bad thing, IMO. I think you made a poor decision w/ Callahan from the start, because Nebraska still thinks it's a great job, and wanted to hire a name coach.

Hire the best candidate for the job, not the biggest name.

I live in Western Nebraska, where ALL there is to do is follow NU football. They were explaining to me how the whole Callahan thing worked out. Apparently Callahan brought in his own DC and that is the most of the problem. I'm sure Callahan recruits differently also.

Here is what they told me. I have no idea how true it is, its just what they told me. They said that the blackshirt deal was that the best players who were leaders on defense got to wear black shirts in practice. That made it a huge honor, and made the young kids work very very hard to get the honor.

Well, in comes Callahan and his DC. The DC just gave everybody on the defense a black shirt. Completely eliminating the honor and forcing the kids to work for it.

I don't know how true that is, but if that is the case, the blackshirts just need to go away and try something else. If this is true, this is a huge dumbass mistake.

Bugeater, what are the salary schedules for Cally and Pedey. I'm going to presume that Cally makes at or near 1 mill. Pedey probably makes 75% of that. Both are under contract through 2011.

So that's roughly 7 million to buy out. Then you have to find and pay the new coach and AD at probably an inflated price for a 4 year deal.

So you're looking at 14 million maybe.

I think you're dreaming.

So that's roughly 7 million to buy out. Then you have to find and pay the new coach and AD at probably an inflated price for a 4 year deal.

So you're looking at 14 million maybe.

I think you're dreaming.
Don't know about Pedey, but Cally makes $750K/yr. I know, common sense says we're hosed, but I keep hearing the money is there. One of our local radio hacks is sitting on some "big" story in regards to this issue until his show tomorrow, I'm anxious to see what that is all about. The fact that both of those clowns received extensions just a few weeks ago kills me. We'll see what happens.

The extension was for making the Big 12 title game, something Pinkel and Mangino (whom both got extensions) have failed to do until this year (probably).

Plus most coaches get them because of recruiting, it's easier to send your coach out there to get recruits when he has 5 years left and not 1.

Book excerpts about Callahan, Osborne create waves at NU
BY BRIAN ROSENTHAL / Lincoln Journal Star
Thursday, Oct 18, 2007 - 11:47:15 pm CDT

And you thought this week couldn’t get any more bizarre.

Two days after being hired as Nebraska’s interim athletic director, Tom Osborne was already issuing statements defending comments attributed to football coach Bill Callahan.

Excerpts from the book “The Nebraska Way,” written by University of Nebraska student Jonathan Crowl, with help from former Nebraska trainer Doak Ostergard, were released in a Thursday article in the Daily Nebraskan, NU’s student newspaper.

Among the brow-raisers was a story told by Ostergard in which Callahan, upset after a phone conversation with Osborne, said the then-congressman was “trying to run things from Washington,” and referred to Osborne as “that crusty old f—.”

Osborne said earlier this week he would evaluate Callahan and his coaching staff at the end of the season.

In a prepared statement released Thursday, Osborne said he understood the frustrations and emotions of being a head coach.

“I’m not surprised that my long-term influence on the program could sometimes be felt as a controlling force even while I was away, but that was never the intent,” Osborne said. “That’s why I don’t pay any attention to what may or may not have been said years ago. All that matters is I’m very supportive of Coach Callahan and his staff. We are trying to help our players and rally our fans. Right now, that’s our entire focus.”

The book also details an Ostergard story in which Callahan was upset over a newspaper story.

“F-ing people need to get a life,” Callahan said, according to Ostergard. “Why don’t they go read a book or get lost in the Sandhills? I’m going to get me a real newspaper. I’m going to read the New York Times.”

Callahan, when asked after Thursday’s practice if he denied the comments in Crowl’s book, declined comment and referred to a statement released with Osborne’s. In it, Callahan said he loves coaching and living in Nebraska, and that he respects Osborne.

“We are building a strong relationship with Coach Osborne,” Callahan said. “He knows this program inside and out, and that makes him a valuable resource for me, my staff and our players.”

Callahan fired Ostergard in February, a move that upset Ostergard, largely because the longtime employee said he was given no reason for his sudden dismissal. Crowl, a senior English major and sports writer for the Daily Nebraskan, wrote an article on the situation from Ostergard’s standpoint.

Ostergard later approached Crowl about writing a book about Nebraska football and its relationship with the state. Crowl agreed in March to write the book. Published by iUniverse Inc., “The Nebraska Way” should be available next month — a little later than originally planned, Crowl said.

The 125-page book chronicles many details of Nebraska football — from the success under Bob Devaney and Osborne to the turmoil surrounding the firing of Frank Solich and the leadership of recently fired athletic director Steve Pederson.

Crowl said Thursday’s Daily Nebraskan article had been planned last week, before Pederson’s firing. He said he’s not heard feedback from anybody within the Nebraska athletic department regarding the released excerpts.

“From what I’ve heard about people’s reactions today,” Crowl said, “I think one of the more misconstrued aspects of the book ... there’s a lot of focus on the controversial subjects that relate to Callahan and Pederson, but really, if you look at the book, almost two-thirds don’t deal with any controversial subject matter.”

Ostergard didn’t return phone messages seeking comment. But earlier this week, when asked to comment on Pederson’s firing, Ostergard declined, telling the Journal Star he wanted to take “the high road.”

Said Callahan of Ostergard: “I think he’s a fine man. We wish him the best.”

Dear ****face,

I saw the frown on your face when the team came out for the tunnel walk, you no class ass. You don't appreciate the traditions at NU. You and Cosgrove are so gone and you know it. Coz ducked his head when he came out like he was trying to avoid the crown. You don't even believe in getting the team fired up before the game. 85,000 people were cheering the team when they came out, but your players jogged out like they didn't want to be there. I didn't see any fire; I didn't see anybody jumping on each other.

What's the deal with letting A&M run the same play over and over and ****ing over. McGee had your defense in his pocket. I saw the pattern in the second quarter, you never figured it out. You don't even care to make an adjustment.

I'm sick of you calling dink and dunk shit because that's all our offense can do. You only went down field one time yesterday. Your boy Keller actually is a good quarterback, but he needs to work on his decision making. The only good thing yesterday was seeing Quentin Castille take over the starting running back job, if you decide to let him from now on, which I doubt. It's past time to let your young receivers get into the game. And great call going for it on fourth and goal from the six yard line when a field goal would've helped us.

You should resign immediately since you don't want to coach the team.

Tom has stated that he will not evaluate the coaching staff until after the season. He'd look decidedly un-classy if he were to go back on that, unless something really huge came up. If he's un-moved by the Callahan comments in the book (and he appears to be) then Billy Boy will play out the season. IF (hardy har har) we go to a bowl game, they may or may not let him coach it.

Callahan comes out firing
By BRIAN CHRISTOPHERSON / Lincoln Journal Star
Tuesday, Oct 23, 2007 - 03:05:02 pm CDT

With the criticism of his coaching rising in decibels, Bill Callahan came out firing at Tuesday’s weekly football press conference.

The Husker coach was asked silly questions: Why hasn’t he worn his Husker gear the past two press conferences?

And questions of worth: Are you going to resign before this season’s over?

He scoffed at both. Here was a man ready to make his case as to why he should continue to be the football coach at Nebraska.

About resigning, he said: “No, I’m committed. I said I want to be here. I want to be here. I signed an extension to be here ... No, (resigning is) not an option.”

Surely, one broadcaster questioned — with the season’s results, the firing of Steve Pederson, and a book coming out that alleges Callahan said unkind things about Tom Osborne — the coach must wonder if he’s the right man for the job.

“I don’t acknowledge that book at all. All I would tell you is ... I’ve done an excellent job in every area. It’s hard for the media to know, but what we’ve done off the field, and what we’ve done on the field. I think it’s well-documented,” Callahan said.

“We did some positive things. We have. We haven’t sustained it this year. But you’re in a (Big 12) championship game, in a three-year period of time you come in and implement a whole new offensive system, and in two years time you’re in a championship ballgame.”

Within minutes, his words were being batted around in cyberspace.

Can the words “I’ve done an excellent job in every area” be uttered by a man leading a 4-4 football team?

The people wondered.

Callahan continued.

“There’s a lot of work being done, to put together these recruiting classes, I think it bodes well for what we represent and how hard this staff has worked,” he said. “I got enough confidence in myself and our staff and our players to know we can win. We’re going to win. We’re just going through a tough stretch.”

The Huskers have lost their last three games by a combined 88 points, giving up an average of 40.6 in each of those games.

During the time, fan criticism has reached a level rarely seen around here.

Some positive energy returned last week with the announcement of Tom Osborne as interim athletic director, but then came a 36-14 loss to Texas A&M.

Sour moods returned.

Senior receiver Maurice Purify admitted Tuesday he was “kind of angry at the fans.”

He said they put on their red shirts and caps, then they come down behind the bench when Nebraska’s trailing and voice opinions of negativity.

Said Purify: “They'll say, ‘You guys suck.’ I’m like, if you’re going to support us when we’re winning, why can’t you support us when we’re losing?”

Callahan has bigger problems.

He said a few of his recruits have de-committed due to the instability in the program.

One of them is Jonas Gray, the gifted running back from suburban Detroit.

Because of Nebraska’s unstable coaching situation, he’s now taking looks at Notre Dame, Michigan and LSU. He said he doesn’t rule out Nebraska.

“It’s a lot of work to climb up to that seven hole in the country in recruiting. That’s the disappointment when you don’t have success, you see some of that slipping,” Callahan said.

The coach said parents are expressing a lot of uncertainty to him.

“When your son’s looking at an institution, they want stability and they want continuity, and I think that’s why, with (my) contract extension in September, that made everyone feel assured that there was going to be those traits for their son.

“And so with everything up in the air, parents are concerned, they’re looking for other options. That’s the tough part, because our coaches have worked exceedingly hard to build that. And let’s be honest, it takes time to build that. It takes years to get into a position where you can have a great class.”

Callahan said he’s tried hard to get the talented prep players while also plugging in JUCO players to a team that did not have a lot of depth when he arrived.

He said when he got here, he had to simply get recruits to “plug a dike” at certain positions.

“I got to tell you what, this is the hardest recruiting staff you’ve seen, getting kids to camp and getting kids here on campus, and locking up a class the way they did,” Callahan said. “That’s what hurts. That’s what’s disappointing when you’re right at the position you can get a top class of talent like that and then let it slip away, that’s really tough.”

Yeah, but what do high-ranking recruiting classes matter if you can’t produce on the field?

Callahan’s answer: “I think it takes time. Those classes take time. We’re playing a lot of young guys. I think it takes time. I really do. I think it’s a circumstance where you just try to keep growing with the players that you have. And I love our kids. They’re trying hard. They’re working hard.”

Blaine Gabbert has canceled his official visit on November 9. His dad said he hasn't decommitted. He may take his official visit when the new staff is in place. He and Will Compton were really put off by Mizzou fans who ripped them on message boards for committing to Nebraska. Will Compton said he'll give the new staff a shot. Recruits are obviously going to look at their options right now.

I'll agree slightly with Mo Purify in the sense that you have to support your Huskers win or lose...the problem is when you start out the season feeling like you are a top 10 team talent wise, and you figure it's year 4 of the new system, we should be better, not worse. We're looking like we're going to turn in the worst season in the modern era...that's gonna grate on the nerves of a very proud fanbase with a very proud tradition. I still don't think the fans are crapping on the players as much as the staff and the administration at NU. Unfortunately the players are hearing nothing but criticism of the football program, so they are taking it personally. That's understandable and I'm sure it sucks hard right now being a Husker player.

BTW, if there really are fans who are standing behind the bench and telling the players "You guys suck" well, all I can say is those guys are total assholes...and I still say they are not indicative of the fan base as a whole.

Gabbert, Compton, Givens, et al. are taking official visits to Mizzou. I guess these guys are a little "tougher" than you all think. Of course, Blaine Dalton has committed to Mizzou for 09, so Gabbert has some pretty solid competition at his spot.

I don't know where your "tougher" comment comes from, but it's time for some people to stop piling on. The situation is established by now. The players and coaches have quit, and NU probably won't win another game this season.

The coaches are rumored to have stopped recruiting and are telling recruits they will be gone. All they can guarantee is a scholarship. Tom Osborne is responsible for Kuli's commit. I talked about that earlier, and it fuels the Pelini buzz.

The big story will be the coaching search. NU may sign some kids who aren't on our radar screen right now. They may also keep some kids who are reconsidering their commit to NU. Anyone who follows recruiting knows how crazy it is. Signing day isn't until February 5.

Gray has decommited and seems to like Notre Dame, which is odd to me because the Domers are worse than NU right now. I suppose he could start right away for the Domers. Gray committed to NU because of the staff and said he would decommit if they left. I think the staff is telling recruits they won't be around next year.

We'll see what happens when the new staff is in place. It seems like a number of our commits will give the new staff a chance to recruit them.

But he has proven he can recruit, Pelini has never had to recruit on his own (Crabtree talked about this on 1620 today).

Bugeater,

I'm not sure where the preseason hype came from. This is his 4th year, he's not to the point where he is reloading. Our run defense was stout last year as shown in stats and OU and Auburn being forced to past in the 2nd half of the game last year to beat us. We lost 5 of our defensive front 7, we lost an NFL running back (as well as Glenn and Kenny Wilson) and we lost a QB with 2 years experience in the system.

Given those odds, I think the hype was this team was a little higher than expected. There has been some bad coaching, there has been poor execution by the players and there has been too much impatience and criticism by the fans.

In the long run, the fans being up in arms like this will probably cost Nebraska 2 more down years IMO.

This Mizzou fan will agree that Blaine Gabbert probably is overrated as a five-star. I've said that for a while, and what schools he is looking at have nothing to do with that opinion.

I think he's a four-star based on his tremendous physical talent. If his game ability were more developed, he'd undoubtedly be a true five star.

The key for Missouri with Gabbert is perception around the state and nationally. Land Gabbert, and all of a sudden Mizzou is locking down its border. Oh, and it helps that he's convinced LB Will Compton, WR Wes Kemp, and OL Bryce Givens and Trevor Robinson (both Neb. commits) to come take a look at Mizzou.

Saul - Chris Harper is sick. I would love to have him. Not sure the guy sticks as a QB in college, but he will be a top-level player no matter what position he plays. He reminds me a lot of Lamark Brown in terms of athletic profile and being so developed at such a young age.

I expected to see a comment from two-faced Mizzou fan now that Gabbert has decommitted.


If Gabbert wanted to be a QB at Nebraska, he probably wasn't that good anyways.

Mizzou can have them, he is overrated. I'd rather have Chris Harper.

Chris Harper is not a quarterback. A fantastic athlete, but not a quarterback. He'll be better served when he recognizes that himself

Like I said, you guys are welcome to come over to talkhuskers and the last group of rational Nebraska fans left.

Of course I'm sure you guys probably prefer RSS, where the new rumors pop up every 10 minutes.

I just heard Warren Buffett is wiring Bo Pelini 10 million via Paypal as a down payment.

Heh, I've already been banned at two Husker message boards, might as well go for the trifecta.

Just don't tell him that until he has committed - and redshirted.

Have you watched him play, 'vi?

Neither was Vince Young, but he finally broke Texas's 30+ year drought of a NC.

I've been reading the Tigerboard & it appears that Nebraska is losing a ton of recruits to Mizzou. Wow! Who would have ever thought that?

It started when Martin Rucker betrayed his brother, because Solich couldn't recruit an alcholic to a liquor store.

Three times. Just don't see it at quarterback, but he's a good kid and...yeah, again...tremendous athlete.

K-State would be in great shape in 2009 with Harper at WR and Lamark Brown at LB.

None of them have committed to Mizzou yet. Gabbert may eventually, but it sounds like he and Compton will give the new staff a chance. Bryce Givens is still a Husker commit.

Maybe, the staff hasn't even been fired yet.

DJ Woods is gone FYI, I hope you and the Callahan haters enjoy the free fall.
