well, our tradition probably isn't as strong a selling point as it once was, but I think it still counts for a little when the recruits see all the (increasingly) old trophies. Our bigger strength is probably the fact we have some of if not the
best football facilities in the nation, with the new Osborne center and indoor practice field. We have a very loyal and dedicated fan base (whose national presence means TV appearances) that packs the stadium every week. All these things will be there for a new coaching staff to build around. Four years of Cally (only two of them really that
bad) isn't going to bury us. Years of sucking didn't kill OU, SC, etc. and I don't see Nebraska football falling off the map forever.
