I have got to question all the firing that is going on again this year. Are these AD's just giving themseleves 3 more years? As is preached every year, you have to give a coach 3 years to show progress. So what this basically means is NEB. can be just as good if not worse the next 2 years before we can judge the coach. Do ADS really believe that if they bring in the "right Coach" they will compete for the national championship every year? THink about it? I bet over the last 100 years there have been only 30 schools out of well over 100 that have ever won a national championship. I would have to look it up but I would also bet there are less then 50 coaches that have every one a championship, and that is out of thousands that have coached.Hell how many did NEB. win under Osborne? and that was when the deck was stacked in favor of the schools that gave out 120+ free rides every year.

Just being a good coach is no longer acceptable. One can be the best teacher in the world, but if not getting the university the money they want, then they do not care about morals, just money. It has become a joke and shame. The fun hs been pushed aside for financial interest.

They may think it is better financially but I would have to question that? After you pay millions to buyout a contract, millions more to hire a new coach and then wait 3 years and more then likely end up just about where you started I wouldn't call good financial management. Then again the one thing I am forgetting is just how much money boosters throw at these schools. Every time you get a new coach boosters are stupid enough to think their team is going to be in the national championship in 2 years. "Boosters are as dumb as Gamblers, but at least we know the odds are against us"
