    Absolutely correct.

    I don't begrudge the guy for going. Frankly, between his comments after the bowl game and his position's lack of performance last season, I'm not sad to see him go. The one thing that I have a HUGE problem with is his lie. 3 days ago he said flat-out that he wasn't interested in LSU and would NOT interview there. If he was interested, he should have just kept his trap shut. I don't blame him for going, but the way that he did so is dishonest to put it mildly.

    Wow talk about smiling at someone while knowing your going to stab them as soon as they turn around!! wonder if Bo knew this was coming or if les miles kneeled behind Bo while Raymond shoved him backwards and they both ran away? see ya coach, you were a good recruiter with average coaching ability it seemed so no worries here.
    Whenever you think it can't get any worse for the huskers, just remember the glory days of Callahan.

    As others have "good ridance to bad rubbish!" Cory Raymond was not right for Nebraska. I hope Bo finds another Sanders to fill the spot.

    With the post-bowl brouhaha and much poorer than expected secondary play, I don't know that this hurts much. Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if he was given the impression that it was OK for him to leave. I think the odds are this will end up a positive for Nebraska. We'll probably lose the 2013 recruit that Raymond took the lead on, but there's plenty of time to adjust to that.

    This is JMO, but if we want coaches who want to stick around Nebraska, then Maybe we better start recruiting the best of the best of those coaches with Nebraska roots...just sayin'

    This seems more like a blow to our collective ego than a bad thing for the team. I wasn't all that impressed with him as a coach.

    But we should remember that we poached our new D-Line coach from Iowa a few weeks ago...karma?

    Well if robbing other team's staffs is OK then maybe it's time to go hard after Scott Frost. Oregon is in a little doo doo right now; maybe it will be easier to jump ship now.

    With the possible problems Oregon is having, maybe scoop up a former Husker from their staff and bring him home....

    I can't say I'll miss him. This thing called character that Bo is always talking about means alot to me. If he is willing to tell all the fans the lies he spewed, who knows what he'll say to get a kid to NU. I think we can do better.

    Sure we can but how long will he stay? Someone with ties to the program will make NU a destination, not a stepping stone. We're less apt to win a title if we don't have good continuity on the coaching staff.

    Maybe Bo will give Ron Brown a shot at coaching DB's now. Let Rex coach the RB's.

    I wish him well and don't blame him for going home. But to be honest, I never thought that highly of his coaching. Our DB's were not very physical under him and no one drastically improved. One year isn't a long time, but the great ones get things moving in a hurry.

    What about Mike "after dinner" Minter?? Would be a stud recruiter with lots of NFL experience...bleeds Husker Red...ambassador off the field...been in coaching since retiring from NFL. Probably a long shot, but he'd be my 1st choice. Then again, Bo has a track record of hiring people that he trusts and knows.

    Bo can take it as an opportunity to strengthen the staff. He's further down the road and wiser.
