Nebraska vs LA Tech Game Thread (9/23/23)

Absolutely right about every HC since Solich making some bad staff hires that either limited success (in Pelini's case) or helped cause failure (Callahan, Riley, and Frost).

I think Rhule got some of the hires right, but there are question marks with most of the guys on the offensive side. It's year one, but it's ugly on offense.
Haven't been impressed at all by Satterfield, Raiola, and McGuire.
 
I believe Rhule will immediately make changes if he feels it's necessary, unlike some of our more recent head coaches.
I'm not so sure. Satterfield has been with him at every stop he's been. Someone pointed out yesterday how Rhule even brought him to the Panthers as an assistant OL coach, even though he had never coached OL before. He is Rhule's Cosgrove.
 



Courtesy of SWVAHusker:

Satterfeld is going to get Rhule fired.

He was definitely Rhule's 1st choice at OC. Satterfeld was his OC at Temple from 2012-2015. The only reason he left was he parlayed that job into the HC job at Tennessee Tech. After his team went 1-10 in his second season he got fired. Rhule then hired him to coach TEs at Baylor. Satterfeld followed him to the Carolina Panthers, where he was the Assistant OL coach...despite the fact he'd never coached OL at any level.

Satterfeld is Rhule's Cosgrove.

High risk high reward previous offense did too. Ugly. Thats whats killed us, those turnovers should never come at the rate we were having them.

Besides discipline the only other way is new players.

The difference is, all those places. Now since MRs been compared to BC, name his all those places?
 



You'll have to ask SWVA Husker. He's the one who made the comment. That said, it seems like every HC we hire brings along a buddy or two that aren't worth a damn
Well, name one where he was HC elsewhere and brought along someone?
If MRs considered a previously well established HC and Satt has been on those staffs, Satt being bad is an unexpected scenario, not an expected one.

It certainly was expected to me. I wasn't familiar w/ him until S. Carolina, where he was terrible. I said that when we hired him.
 
Then MR doesn't know what hes been doing this whole time?
I don't know about that, but I do know that Satterfield is not a good OC. I like Rhule but he's going to have to make some changes on his offensive staff if we wants to experience any sort of sustained success here.

If you look at history, MR is a master to adapting to the players he has.
That same history Improves over time. That time includes Satt.

You have to give Satt credit for the good as well as the bad. If you believe rumors about him not calling plays, especially on the good parts, as the rumors had to be redefined because of those great games, MR knew.
You either accept Satt while including the good, or accept Satt including rumor and concentrate on the bad.

My monies on MR knew. MR hired him.
 
Glad we got the W, but NU played really poorly for much of it.

I will disagree, insofar as NU didn't play so poorly that we gave the game away. NU didn't dominate, it was tied at halftime. We missed a FG. But I REALLY like how the offense came out of halftime and just POUNDED the R side with I-formation downhill run game. DB in the booth was having I-formation-gasms with the continued calling of the power run game. Props to Satterfield for not trying to be a typical OC and change things up for no apparent reason.

The bar has now been set so low, I'm happy with playing generally mistake-free football.

IDK if NU will beat UM this week, but I think it will be a 4 qtr game, similar to last time with them in LNK, only instead of pissing the game down OUR leg, UM will flex their muscle, and will pull it out at the end. I hope I'm wrong, and DONU take a step forward and gets the breakout win. But it's too soon in Rhule's tenure, IMO.

I'll take my chances with 300yds rushing and 100yds passing. It worked for 40 yrs. NU cannot recuit adequate talent and accumulate enough talent to run WCO. Or spread, it seems. I'm very comfortable with our current approach. It can at least get us back to bowl eligibility.
