  • Getting Ugly in Lincoln

    I think Callahan and his agent are now reaffirming that they will likely not be able to garner a job anywhere again.

    I mean really, this guy is an agent?

    LINCOLN - If the words of Bill Callahan's agent are any indication, those in the embattled football coach's corner are growing tired of questions about his coaching status at Nebraska.

    Asked in response to a broadcast report if Callahan had been asked by NU to resign, Gary O'Hagan of the International Marketing Group quickly resorted to yelling into his telephone.

    "If they don't want him to be the coach, they can fire him," said O'Hagan, president of IMG coaching division out of Minnetonka, Minn. "Why would he resign? It doesn't make sense. There are two games to go. He's under contract. Why would they ask him to resign?"

    Perhaps because Nebraska officials, in the midst of a five-game losing streak as the Huskers host Kansas State today, don't approve of Callahan's job performance.

    "Then fire him," the agent said, now shouting. "Listen to how stupid you people are. You people need to start studying soil content or something. Why don't you find out how many pair of socks get washed every day in the locker room?"

      Why the hell would he resign? His contract would be void from that point on and he would lose millions. They're just trying to save cash by forcing him to resign, which he won't do.

          Callahan and his offense aren't the problem, its cosgrove and the defense. That's pretty obvious.

            At some point, you have to figure you are damaging not only your reputation, but the reputation of the school. The way Callahan has handled himself (and now his agent) are doing nothing but hurting his pocket book in the future. He may get paid now, but at what price in the future?

              Former nebraska 5 star commit, Blaine Gabbert, committed to Mizzou today. Callahan is losing this recruiting class

                it's a little too late. nebraska wants desperately to be a football powerhouse again and callahan isn't helping them achieve that goal.

                  It's like rep on this site. Bill Callahan has 4 red blocks of rep if he were on NFLDC and the other NFLDC members were Nebraska alum/fans/boosters/administration/etc.

                  One good game doesn't get you up into green.

                  The sad thing is it isn't like Callahan doesn't have talent to work with like Weis. These guys are recruiting top level talent and there is no development of the young players.

                  I point the finger at these assisstant coaches more so than anyone. Developing players starts with a good coaching staff, not just the head coach.

                    Well, that is what happens when you go through a coaching change.

                    Although I do find it a bit hilarious that it takes a complete meltdown on the part of Nebraska, and Mizzou having their best season ever to even get a sniff of their own states top talent.

                    And that is no ones fault but Callahan's.

                    Kevin Cosgrove - Long time friend. Coached with BC at Illinois and Wisconsin in the past. Has let it be known that he goes when BC goes and vice versa.

                    Shawn Watson - Another long time friend. Coaches with BC back during his days at Illinois.

                    Phil Elmassian - Was recommended by Cosgrove. Coached with KC at Wisconsin.

                    Randy Jordan - Former player and coach for Bill Callahan from Oakland.

                    So you see, the majority of NU's staff is friends of Callahan. This is his staff, and his friends at that. Personally, I think that is one of his biggest downfalls. That and until today, he still coached with that NFL mentality of playing soft once you get a lead.

                      LOL, so Gabbert is the only talent from Missouri? What about Maclin, Keck, Andrew Jones, etc?

                      And let's be real: as a Nebraska fan, you should know by now that star ratings don't win football games. Whatever method Pinkel is using to scout and acquire talent, it's obviously working.

                        Did you not see what I even said? Obviously not, because you bring up years past to benefit you. I solely talked about this year, when we took 2 of the 3 top players from Missouri. You know, those players who were 'overrated' and 'workout warriors', among the obscenities you also referred to them as. Cannot forget the death threats either. LOL

                        Then to praise Pinkel for his talent evaluation -- wow, just wow. For the last how many years Mizzou fans have BEGGED to have this man fired, but now he is God?

                        Mizzou fans are a funny bunch, they really are.

                          Gabberts family knew Callahan so Neb had the inside track. I also understand the stars dont mean everything but getting a 5 star player makes the program look good and other recruits might take notice, and Compton is the other player you are talking about is extremely overrated but we might get him too. Mizzou has the only two all americans from missouri this year

                            Jesus, is this a real post?

                            You said, and I quote:

                            Although I do find it a bit hilarious that it takes a complete meltdown on the part of Nebraska, and Mizzou having their best season ever to even get a sniff of their own states top talent.
                            This is either implying that Missouri does not get their state's top talent (which I disproved by naming numerous top Missouri talents that have come to campus) or Gabbert specifically did not give them the time of day before Nebraska's embarrassing collapse (which is also incorrect since he made numerous campus visits before his initial verbal). It's hard to blame the kid for initially falling for Callahan's slick sales job, after all, Nebraska fans fell for the same thing. LMAO

                            WTF are you talking about with the "obsenities" and "death threats"? Are you resorting to making things up to benefit your point? I've never even talked to you on here before.

                            Again, not sure where you're pulling this stuff on Pinkel. I've always been a fan and it's great to see his team put it all together this year. The fact of the matter is that he is doing this with mainly 2 and 3 stars, which is case in point why I am praising him for talent evaluation rather than mind-numblingly following Rivals ratings.

                              Did the opposing coach really give Callahan the finger this weekend? I remember somebody saying that in the Gameday thread.
