Even before Mike Riley was officially fired, the recruiting gurus sounded the alarms over the direction Nebraska seemed to be heading.
This has popped up on @Nebraska247 but in my opinion if a move is made and Nebraska finds itself hiring a coach, the new person, when announced, needs to start immediately.
It’s cold & unsentimental, but being tasked with this job means the focus should be strictly on Nebraska.— Mike Schaefer (@mikejschaefer) November 17, 2017 I understood the concern and the argument, but I also completely disagreed at the time.
Noble thought. But what if your #1 choice isn’t willing to do that? Do you move on to another candidate?
