Erstad will be safe because he's a Nebraska guy.   The program has definitely taken a couple steps back, but it's not one of the big3... so it won't be addressed.

Also.. I don't see another sport outside the big3 that would be reviewed to the level of wanting to fire a coach.   As long as those teams are competitive and most importantly, the athletes are in good standing and keeping the University out of the papers, they'll be fine for now.   The new AD's job is to address football and I'd suspect men's basketball after that.  But football is the driver for these changes.  

and I don't think it was just about Riley.   Agreeing to Friday night football games, being ok with no black Friday games... just recent examples of SE not getting Nebraska and being out of touch with what people wanted.

Tre Bryant, Joshua Kalu and Marcus Newby will all miss the Illinois game with injuries. Stanley Morgan will travel but may be limited.

This week in Husker history.......

«1937: In Biff Jones' first game as Husker head coach, Nebraska stuns the college football world with a 14-9 upset of defending national champion Minnesota.

He can't finish 9-4 and fourth in his division of the AAC, like Tom Herman was able to get away with at Houston. 

He's gotta win at least ten games, imo.

That'll be difficult since his team lost two games to the hurricane and only had 10 on the regular season schedule. I think 8-2 puts him in a solid spot. 
They just beat one of the four best teams that had remained on the schedule. At 3-0 they've got four more they should win. Then you have USF, Navy, plus a SMU team the numbers like that could at least get into a shootout. USF if formidable, Navy a consistent pain to face and I've no good read on SMU. I could see 9-1, maybe as bad as 7-3.

That's right. 

Yeah, that path would probably get him the gig. 

If he gets distracted by all this Nebraska drama and drops a few of those games that you are gifting to the win column... then the whole thing might go right off the rails.

Bo and Solich are both in good places for them.. neither wanted to be on the recruiting trail and both like driving home at night after talking to a recruit.
