Polish the Resume

Does Frank Solich find this as funny as I do? Nebraska fired their AD Steve Pederson and there is no doubt the Bill Callahan is next.

Solich was a Tom Osborne disciple and personally picked by the legendary coach to succed him in Lincoln. Steve Pederson shows up and two years after going to the National Title game, Pederson fired Solich and brought in Callahan fresh off a 4-12 season with the Raiders.

While Callahan got a pass to bring in his players to run his system, Solich moved on to Ohio University.

All Callahan has done is cut down on walk-ons; a staple at Nebraska, change the offensive system, Bob Devany and Osborne can't be happy; and repeatedly gets waxed at Memorial Stadium.

He even got a four year extension from Pederson after a 9-5 Big 12 North winning season.

This Saturday's pasting at the hands of Oklahoma State (that's right Oklahoma State), is probobly the last straw. The Huskers have been crushed by Missouri and USC on National TV, Ball State was one play from pulling off a big upset and still has trips to Austin, Lawrence and Boulder along with a home date against Kansas State. The Big Red could lose the rest of their games.

Good luck Huskers on finding your new AD and coach this offseason and hopefully returning yourselves to the glory days.
