Sorry I offered you JerryThe OP said Jerry would get them back to 8 wins a season. He didn't say he would walk in and win 8 games a season from day one. By looking at his career in its entirety you are choosing an irrelevant sample set to prove your point. Is Kill not winning 8 games in his first two seasons at Northern Illinois or Minnesota relevant to whether he'd be able to get Nebraska back to 8 wins a season -- no because no one in their right mind would have expected anyone to win 8 games in those seasons with those teams.
You are right that I didn't use the right term. You didn't cherry pick because that would mean you ignored the germane information -- you too broadly picked your sample set instead of too narrowly picking.
Even without looking I'm guessing there is a Stoops on the list. I don't know how many Stoops' there are (7,...8?), nor what their first names are but there will be one.Can't see Urban Meyer there but saw this list and think all sound reasonable. https://mikefarrellsports.com/featured/five-potential-replacements-for-scott-frost
It's like Trev just gave his buddy a golden parachute. Nebraska was foolish to not negotiate the price down, seeing how he was getting fired on 10/1 regardless. But when you're dealing with people who have millions, I guess they'll throw an extra 7.5 down just to get him off the sidelines.Just admit you were talking out your ass for a change, fraud.
It certainly feels like a "straw that broke the camels back" firing.Had the thought this morning this firing was reminiscent of Glen Mason's termination after the historic loss to Texas Tech in the 2006 Insight Bowl. Concerns had been building around Mason after 10 years of moderate success but no breakthrough seasons.
Like then Nebbie's loss to Georgia State was the last straw. Unlike then Nebbie is doing this at the start of a season, not the end where the AD had to scramble to find candidates and eventually a coach.
Who knows what's going to happen with this season for them but going forward should not be a rebuild. We'll be in Lincoln to hopefully bring home the W. Heard unsolicited from the Husker fan in the family and he is very pleased. He has been willing to give Coach Frost time but Saturday night was just it for him. Obviously the same for the big boosters too.
Things like this I think apply to a lot of the candidates being thrown around.Jim Leonhard wants to be Wisconsin's next head coach. That guy isn't leaving, he doesn't need a big pay day. If Wiscomsin keeps losing this will happen as soon as next year.
