All good things must come to an end


For decades, everything was lined up perfectly for the Huskers. They were probably the most consistent program in cfb.

IMO the beginning of the end was when Osborne retired. Expecting anyone to sustain his success was nuts. The first big mistake was firing Solich. He was 58-19 and had just gone 9-3. The next big mistake was a string of poor coaching hires- Callahan, Pelini, etc.

In the meantime, the Huskers were losing their edge as the arms race ramped up for best facilities. NU was no longer special.

Going to the Big 10 was the nail in the coffin. Their recruiting base is totally different now and they cannot keep up with the conference heavyweights.
