For those of you who have watched the agony that has been the Buffaloes this year. Your more than likely a person of one or two camps, either your a glutton for punishment or gleeful of a fallen foe. I'm a little bit of both truth to be told. But no matter what your opinion is you have to admit that there is a lot of similarties to what they are going thru and what we did a few years ago. Week end and week out both of the teams under performed and was just plain lousy. Defense was a joke, turnovers were abundant and the coaching staff was shoveling manure and saying that it was fine to walk thru. How many times did we hear Callahan say that it wasn't the coaching staffs fault or something along those lines. You hear the same things coming from Hawkins. The trouble is we had Dr. Tom and they have nobody like that.
Dr. Tom came back to our program to be our saviour and you could almost hear a sigh of relief coming from the entire Husker nation. CU sadly has nobody that can be that savior and whats worse they may not have the funding to get a top flight coach or to buy out Hawk's contract. So even if the buffaloes go win less in the rest of their games you may see the head coach back again next year.
To truly understand how bad they are just look at some facts, there strength it seems is the running game. So they pass it more than run. Def is awful as well so a strong running game will help that side of the ball, but again they PASS more than run. Which was a downfall of Callahan if I remember correctly. Burned a redshirt for the same guy two years in a row and the season is all ready pretty much in the tubes, Hmm remind you of anyone. There are lots of other reasons why they suck but there is one core reason of all the problems, management.
I hope that they can pull themselves out of this problem. Just don't see how its going to happen and it will take a long, long time to fix
