sound familar

Ballhype: hype it up!University of Nebraska fired their AD today for a"lackluster football season" rumor has it the head coach is next on the chopping block. So what construes a "lackluster season"?

allowing the most points at home ever, check

allowing more than forty points three times in a season, check

having an average point deficit of more than 20 points, check

Here is what their chancelor had to say
"We are, of course, disappointed about the progress in our football program," chancellor Harvey Perlman said in a news release. "Steve has done many positive things for Husker athletics during his tenure, but I think only new leadership can objectively assess the state of our program and make the decisions necessary to move us forward."

After reading that take a guess at their record, i bet you think they have a losing one, wrong!
It 4-3,yup they are one game over .500. In four seasons under Callahan, the Huskers are 26-18 overall, 14-14 against the Big 12, 3-8 against teams in the Top 25 and 0-6 against the Top 10. They have given up 40 points or more nine times, including four times this season. So what does this say about there program. It says they will not settle for mediocrity. Now take those stat and compare them to Greg Robinson who was amassed an amazing record of 6-24 all time and 2-15 in the big east. Amazingly enough he still has a job, and so does Daryl Gross

How bout this stat, since Daryl Gross has shown his face in the cuse, the Lacrosse Team failed to make the playoffs for the first time in eons, the basketball team went to the nit last year, then lost in the first round the year before, is there a coincidence, i am beginning to see the light! Gross you better ship up or your fate my be the same as Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson's was. Hope you are sleeping well!
