Isn't Nebraska still paying Pelini to coach the Penguins?

Pelini liked the 3 star kids with huge chips on their shoulders

he almost won enough games

he came under fire for not recruiting stars
I thought perhaps he was fired because of his gameday personality. He certainly won plenty of games. The optics Pelini displayed during games looked awful, and he drew bad publicity for the university.

Pelini was fired for not winning championships

It seemed that he had reached his peak

if Bo would have won 8 or 9 games a season with class and handled the press and the fans and the politics with class, perhaps he would still be there.  I doubt it.

When a coach isn't winning enough, we look for things we don't like to justify his firing.

Everything becomes questionable, sideline demeanor, recruiting, press relations, everything

Riley is a good coach, just WAY too soft.

no discipline, kids running the program

I had that feeling as well.  Nebraska probably could have lived with Pelini's 9 wins each year, if he wasn't such an A*Hole.

They thought they could find a nice guy who could just as easily win 9 games a year, without being a jerk to everyone.  And that's how they ended up with Riley.

Pelini's game day persona is his most entertaining attribute.

Ed Zachery

Riley wasn't hired to be the greatest coach for the next 2 decades and take them back to greatness, Riley was hired to win 8 or 9 and be a good guy until the next great coach came along. (Scott Frost)

Eichorst couldn't handle Pelini and made a hasty change.

Eichorst was soft.

Interesting chart. This is the type of chart the conference must have been looking at when scheduling Iowa-Wisconsin as the last game of the year in 2020 and 2021. It reverts back to Iowa-Nebraska, and Wisconsin-Minnesota in 2022.

nope, rumor that a booster of substance dropped the cash to buy out Pelini and Riley

Yeah, I had not groked that the West has yet to win the conference title game.  The SEC has slightly more balance than that.

I am not a fan of Friday night games, with one exception; I am okay with a Black Friday game. Nebraskans have trained us well.

I enjoy some Thursday night games early in the year when it's Duke playing Wake Forest or some such.
