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.
Thats all nice and all but Ive heard about how Callahan has taken down pictures of All Americans in their facilities and how he has also fired people who have worked in the program for years. It seems like Callahan was trying to erase the reminders of former greatness so he wouldnt feel as insecure.
