THE DANNO AWARDS OF THE PAST DECADE (PLUS ONE) OF HUSKER FOOTBALL
But this year, we are going to honor the best (and worst) of the years 2000 to 2010 (the Decade Plus One) of Husker football. Why the past 11 years? Because 2010 marked the end of Nebraska's association with the Big 12 Conference. And this fall, the Huskers will be playing in the venerable Big Ten Conference.
In this segment, we'll look at the Cornhusker Award and the best of the offensive moments.
2000-2010 (DECADE PLUS ONE) DANNO AWARD WINNERS
But it was Perlman who had the sense to fire AD Steve Pederson and to hire Tom Osborne as interim AD. In turn, Osborne fired Callahan and most of his staff at the end of the '07 season and replaced him with Bo Pelini. And last year, Chancellor Perlman also publicly voiced his displeasure with Bo Pelini's sideline meltdowns during last year's loss at Texas A&M.
But maybe even more importantly, it was Harvey Perlman who led the way for Nebraska to move to the Big Ten Conference. One wonders what would have happened had Callahan remained the head coach and Perlman not been chancellor. Would Nebraska still have been invited to dance in the Big Ten? It's doubtful.
