Riley has been no better than Pelini on the field or in recruiting. But I love his desire to win and willingness to change. The offense has been ok given the injuries and lack of depth. I think it'll be much better with a QB that can find open receivers. But special teams and defense are awful despite being healthy. Good changes by Riley.

As Osborne said to Callahan, you can maybe have 1 bad year here. You don't last with 2. He's already had a losing record and got a pass for it. I don't think Riley had a choice on these. We've under-performed with two relatively easy schedules. Next year's will be tougher and 2018 is a legitimately tough one. The seats for Riley and Eichorst were definitely getting warm.

Supposedly they already have the replacement ready to go (which would make sense). Could be announced tomorrow, if not Saturday.

I would buy 50 if it also included a picture of Elmo alongside him.

It sounds like Bob Diaco will be bringing his 3-4 defense to Lincoln.
Good thing we have plenty of linebackers.

I also hear Diaco will be the highest paid assistant coach in Nebraska football history at a rumored nearly $1 million salary.. As a point of reference, the fired Banker was making $580,000...

2016 is in the books. Time to move on to a 2017 thread. With the staffing changes, recruting, Winter conditioning, and pending spring practice we are on to a new season.

I moved a few posts at the end of the 2016 thread here that are about the future season.

Pretty impressive recruiting class beginning to come together. When's the last time we've had 4 4-star WR's ?

Meh..

NU has had more effective recruiting classes under Osborne that ranked in the 40's..

It's not the number of stars or "blue chips" in college; but rather how they fit into the coaching system/scheme and then practice and play "the right way" that makes the actual difference..

Time and coaching will tell with these current supposed "4 star" recruits.. there is as much a chance they'll fall flat on their faces than become on the field difference makers..

We shall see...

It will be interesting to see how the new system will use these WRs. And they are still after one more. If one of our QBs can get them the ball in stride... In ugly weather...

With the D going 3-4 I hope we can develop a good NG.

Although not a WR, for the time he was here, TE Cethan Carter was never fully integrated or used properly within the NU offensive scheme.. Never got to see the coaching staff maximize this kids talent.. We saw flashes, then he got hurt..

I think Carter has the talent and skill set to potentially play in the NFL.. Or at least garner a spot on somebody's practice squad...

Yes

So far all have fallen the Huskers way that were expected with a few major signings still in play.

Guy Thomas staying with Nebraska surprised me. Still think Calvin signs with Wash State.

Greg's correct. Calvin signed with Wazzou.

That kid is a headcase, and Nebraska might end up with better WRs.

I really like what Riley has done since the end of the regular season. He made some significant coaching changes and put together good recruiting class. My only complaint is they didn't fill out the class. Bo was awful in this area which contributed to the depth issues of late. It's a tough spot for coaches though as they were in on some high end talent that didn't announce until late today. Nebraska might not have as many spots open next year either.

Next year's will be smaller, but with the couple spots that weren't filled this year you add those to next year's class (and for this spring and fall, you give the open ones to senior walk ons).
