    To refresh, Part 1 was a veiled prediction that, based on the latest D meltdown and already screeching tenor of the fan base, that Bo wonít survive what seems destiny to not be competitive for a B1G title and thus there was little point to engaging in raucous debate as to whether Bo should stay or go, when the answer is all but written.

    Secondly, since the two sides of Husker Nation are so polarized, convincing the opposing view to come around has become as hopeless as convincing ...

    Note:This was written before the Deadspin bomb, which wonít help Pelini, but at first scratch doesnít seem to sway opinions from either side about the most divisive man in Nebraska. The following was not altered.

    The firestorm is raging over defunding the Pelini experiment and Iím sure many have tuned in to read this writerís Affirmative Constructive for this debate, but there are two reasons not to argue this topic.

    One. ...

    The 2012 season is over and pundits will now spend nine months feasting on the state of the program while the Husker staff scurries underground only to surface for air in a few Groundhog Day moments after National Signing Day, the Red/White Game and Fall Camp to exhale recycled statements about just how dang awesome the team is progressing.

    This is

    Ugly is in the eye of the beholder. Comeback wins are oft viewed as things of beauty, assuming youíre on the side of the comebacker or is it comebackee? Thereís also winning ugly and if a formal definition for winning ugly exists, NU probably gets caught trying to squeeze into those jeans. Averaging three turnovers ...

    The Michigan game started like UCLA, OSU, and NU with the Huskers getting a fast start only to have the lead run away just before half; only this time the lead didnít run away. It lay in a heap, 8 yards shy of the lead, numb and unable to run or throw.

    Iíve never done a Civil War ...

    Everyone gets that 1994, 1995, and 1997 are gone and even the most adamant hanger-on has triggered some kind of coping mechanism by now. Husker fans that witnessed those legendary teams were lucky, those that didnít are luckier; but not because they canít truly grasp just how steep NUís decline has become, ...

    Keeping with current events, truths in an election year are off the hook. If I were to say that the debt has grown by $5 trillion in the four years of the Obama administration, thatís an indisputable truth, but simply by saying that, Iíll still draw the ire of Democrats as if I were the flag draped pachyderm himself. The fierceness of contradicting truths is a fascinating phenomenon in the internet ...

    I could talk about the Idaho State game, but why? The Bengals from potato country were more like Pringles; a fragile, too easy answer to hunger for self-confidence. Idaho State was maybe the worst team Iíve even seen in Memorial Stadium and Iíve seen Pacific. The Bengals were so bad, they were Iowa without the pre-trial diversion program.

    So speaking of the Big Bad ...

    ďWe live in a cynical world...a cynical world. And we work in a business of tough competitors...Ē - Jerry Maguire

    For most of Husker Nation, Bo Pelini had them at hello. Unanimously as the DC that un-Bohlíd the Blackshirts in 2003 and substantially as Dr. Tomís choice for head coach in 2008. Detractors favored ...

    Strange things are afoot at the Husker Ranch since three UCLA victory formations for minus 5 yards were all that kept the Bruins from eclipsing the 656 yard NU pile-on record set by OU in 1956. Though the Huskers have returned home from SoCal, thereís a sense the whole program is still stuck in LA-LA land.

    For history buffs the 1956 Sooners were perhaps HOF coach Bud Wilkensonís ...
