Barry is good friends with our univ Pres and sold her on one of his assistant ADs who she hired as our AD. The guy was awful with alumni and did not want to be here...and while he was helping with the NCAA investigation Barry tells him to go to Nebraska when we needed to weather thru the NCAA storm so he ditches us. 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.

What university? Was your president held accountable for her choice?

Miami. Donna makes mistakes from time to time but she is a great leader and has tremendous political connections with the Administration and Capitol Hill...which is currently helping a great deal with our NCAA issues.

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

A scrub coach that took over after the regular season when Dave Doeren left for NC State.

I have hired hundreds of people. After the initial resume review and panel interview, the reference check is huge. I have been burned by the reference who is just trying to dump trash and it sucks. " Fired up" sucks. I am not saying this is the case with the Wisky or the U, just my experience. In my business it is very difficult to correct the outcome so it is easier to "recommend" someone to move them on. I track references just in case.

This roster is just as good if not better than Alabama...thank God Jimbo is keeping them down. We were pretty much tied with them thru 3 quarters this year even tho we had a bunch of kids starting and the college equivalent of the 07 and 08 Bronco defense. Al is going to kill those guys when the talent differential catches up next year.

FSU 31 NIU 10.

Congrats on your Orange Bowl title Req. I don't think you guys were too impressive and I still think Jimbo is an awful game day coach but the Noles nonetheless had a great year at 12-2.

Thanks, dude. What an amazing game! Tahj Boyd is a man. He took a beating and kept getting up. 4th and 16, throws a beautiful pass to Nuke. And how about Hopkins? He's probably gone, but I hope I'm wrong. It was a joke that he wasn't 1st team All-American, and he scorched the LSU D all night. Should be a 1st round pick if he leaves. The biggest surprise was the defense...held LSU to 219 yards and 9 first downs. They really stepped up, especially Malicah Goodman (aka Handszilla) who dominated.

Defense was lights out (as usual) and our offense was OK, besides how atrocious we were on third down. Make at least 5 more of those conversions instead of going like 3-13 and we drop 50 on those NIU turds. Will be interesting to see where Pryor goes in the draft. Looks like Rhodes is declaring, Thompson will forego mRS, but Woerner and Joyner have yet to decide. We will see what shakes out.

I hate the cheap ass SEC ball. No brains in their heads so they might as well lead with their helmet at every turn.

SEC is losing it's grip IMO. Bowl games were a lot closer then they should have been for all the hype they get.

I definitely fear the injuries. Florida is hitting hard and Bridgewater leaves himself open to a lot of hits while trying to extend the play.

You guys are playing much better than I expected. Props. I hope you can keep it up in the second half and beat the Gayturds. Muschamp has been great defensively in second halves but if you can get 1 more TD you should be ok.

Huge squandered opportunity after the fumble but they're definitely playing as well as we could've hoped.

Bridgewater>>>>>>That Gator D

Heck, today, Card D>Gator D

This will be huge for the future of Cards football.

This game is a testament to Louisvilles South Florida recruiting...Andrew Johnson....Burgess...TB..Rogers....KB..etc. That is the lifeblood of the program. Stronge biggest challenge is being able to keep the pipeline going after he loses Clint Hurtt in a few months to the show cause sanction.
