from Colonel Mustard
More important in the grand scheme is what happens on Saturday with the coaches. It seems that when confronted with the toughest decision of his Nebraska career, Byrne is trying to leave. If he does, we should call Steve Pederson at Pitt; he would be a terrific replacement. Byrne has lost ground with me no matter what he does because of the timing of his announcement. Win or lose on Friday, the future of the program rests in the staff changes. If the changes aren't massive, then I worry that this down spiral will continue.
I hope that we win Friday because any win over the vermin is a good one. But we have to win with bold and creative staff upgrades on Saturday.
GBR. Keep the faith.
