    Let me get this straight...

    I think you missed the point of @Norm Peterson post. The majority, if not all, of recruits know the length of a coaches contract. They do not dig any deeper than that. They don't have the time or energy to do a deep dive and understand the nuances. A recruit is being pursued by multiple teams. They are buried in the process of recruiting along with juggling everything else in their lives. They are more focused on what it is going take to play as soon as possible, because that is the goal of the most of them. The length of contract is reality. Competing coaches can try to spin it however they want but a 4/5 contract is a 4/5 year contract and a 3 year contract is a 3 year contract. Those contracts say a lot to a recruit because it is understandable to them.

    Sam is sticking his finger in the wind to see which way the wind blows.
  3. That was as of 4/1 which means he only had 2yrs left on his contract at the time. Would like to see the current buyout. Be curious to see if that buyout number went up or stayed the same.

    FTR, I like Bill Moos. He has done a lot for Nebraska athletics already. Many who believe Scott Frost was a slam dunk to come here are mistaken. Scott was not going to come here and just work for any old AD. BM also had to clean up a complete mess in the AD's office. It can't be overstated how much work he had to do in a short period of time. Also, as has been mentioned, the mess that is TM contract was inherited as well. I understand what he is trying to do here, I just so happen to disagree with his strategy. I can see where this might work out and where it might fail. I don't agree when people say BM is not TM fan. I just don't think he has had enough time to evaluate. My issue is the optics and the very real impact this could, and likely will have on recruiting. Whether people like it or not a 3yr contract hurts recruiting. That is the real world.

    While his language was harsh for some to take, we now know that Pelini was dead on in his description of SE.

    What guy did he run off?

    Bingo. Every single game we play next season will seem like his job is on the line. I for one will be more inclined to give away my tickets to some of the lesser games. The pressure cooker at the Vault is going to be off the charts.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see Miles go the AAU route. A coach who will bring a player or 2 for the chance to get their foot in the door coaching at a major football conference.
  10. Riley is essentially working for free at Oreg St.. While he is listed as the assistant head coach his salary is only $50k/yr! Taking into consideration that there would be any meaningful savings if he gets fired and subsequently finds another job is not realistic.

    What a 1 year extension accomplishes: 1.Kills recruiting. 2. Kills attendance. 3. Sets the program back years. This is a kick in the pants to season ticket holders.
  12. That sort of strategy didn't pan out well for Nebraska with the last 2 football coaches that were fired.

    I really feel bad for him. I wish him nothing but the best. He'll always be a Husker.
