And what do you know...the Archer was right. Bo Pelini is now the defensive coordinator at LSU and working on a national championship. I said at the time he was going to go somewhere and win someone a national championship. The year he was in Lincoln the defense made incredible improvements.
There was an article in the Omaha paper a few days ago about the number of games Nebraska has lost in the Callahan era by 17 points or more. He's already at 8 (Tom Osborne had 9 over a 25 year career). I imagine this will go up by at least 2 by season's end. If Pelini had stayed, I guarantee that would not be the case. (609 yards to Ball State? Are you kidding me?)
Ah well...mediocrity, thy name is now Nebraska football.
