Then Barry tries to go after our coach.

He also has lost a lot of good assistants at Wisky because they don't pay them well and he has done nothing to rectify that. Many assistants left for Arky LAST year due to pay issues so its no surprise Bielema went there this year....he is frustrated with the pay issues and can't keep his best assistants. I've also heard Barry is difficult to work for and loves to hog credit.
I can't deny any of that, but I have to say I can't fault him for luring your AD. Barry's heart is still deeply set in NU football, and he has done more for Nebraska as a nonstaff member than I have ever seen in NCAA football. His luring of Nebraska to the Big 10 is a huge example of that. It does suck he's trying to poach Miamis program, but Bielema leaving did stuff the NC State coaching staff, so again I can't complain. Maybe Berry is just subconsciously helping my College football interests
