Thought you guys would enjoy this! Nebraska didn't show up to win the game -- it was unbelieveable that they played to run out the clock from the beginning. Nebraska needs a new coach if you ask me. What happened to the West Coast offense? It failed to show up the way it looked!
We knew we were going to get our ass kicked before this game started, we actually thought the score would be more like 62 - 10. Next year will be better, we have some very good recruits coming.
I think that he left the much-vaunted "West-Coast" offense on the West Coast!
As a Husker Fan....I agree does everyone know what WCO means?
William (Bill) Callahan Overated
You're right about not showing up to win. But that's kind of a late season thing. Nebraska Coach Callahan has gotten blown out everytime he tries to call a game in the West Coast Offense like he really wants. This year's quarterback, Joe Daily, just isn't accurate enough to run that offense. Whenever they try, he throws 4-5 interceptions a game, and complete well under 50 percent of their passes. When he pulls it back and favors the running game, they've managed to at least not kill themselves, if not always win.
In my opinion, Coach Callahan is already playing for next season. Frank Solich was a good guy, and a good coach, but he couldn't keep up Osborne's talent level through his recruiting. His fate was sealed the minute the new AD was hired. Callahan was hired for one thing - recruiting. If he doesn't work out after 3 or 4 seasons, they'll can him for a better coach, but the talent level the new coach finds is expected to be competitive with OU and Texas - which Solich had lost.
It would have been nice if Callahan could have gelled with the old players, but he didn't. He'll have to build his own team through recruiting - Solich's guys aren't responding to him. And the defensive coordinator he hired - Kevin Cosgrove - is a joke. Nebraska will get better. But there are probably a few more changes coming before the OU-Nebraska game returns to what its supposed to be.
Good luck in the national title hunt. Oklahoma over USC!
