What is going on at the University of Nebraska?

Folks, I'm a Nebraska Cornhusker fan.  Don't hold that against me, but I grew up there.  I've been a fan my entire life and I live for those seven Saturdays in the Fall in Lincoln where I can leave all my inhibitions behind and get drunk and watch football.

Nebraska Head Coach Bo Pelini

Head Coach Bo Pelini has apparently been doing some house cleaning.  One coach has already resigned.  That was Marvin Sanders, secondary coach.  That hurts to lose.  He was a good coach and from everything I hear he resigned because of personal reasons, not professional.  If you've been paying attention to the Cornhuskers the past couple years you will have noticed an inept offense and some great defenses.  Rumor has it that Offensive Coordinator Shawn Watson and Wide Receivers Coach Ted Gilmore are out.  That's ok with me.  There's been a lot of speculation about who's going to replace these coaches on the offensive and defensive side of the ball.  Nebraska has yet to make an official announcement about coaching changes but you can clearly see that they've hired new coaches already. You can read about that here.  I've looked at and it looks like they've changed it back already.  Probably a good move.  In fact, the new coaches shouldn't be put on the website until an official announcement is made by the University.  I'll keep you posted on this one.  Something tells me the University needs to make this announcement soon.  If you know anything about the Husker fan base it's that they don't like to be kept in the dark and that's where we are right now.
