Mike Riley came to Nebraska ready to change the Huskers fortunes, but just like the coaches before him he has not been able to find success. Many people ask me whats wrong with your Cornhuskers? It's really an easy answer they are horrible in all phases of football. Let's look at whats wrong with Nebraska and what coach can fix this problem.
The number one problem with the Cornhuskers is they are not very talented at all. In fact most of the players they have are average compared to the better teams in the country. This is why you see blowouts from Wisconsin and Ohio State all the time. Those teams have more talented players and it shows every Saturday when the Cornhuskers take the field. Getting better players is something the new coach will need to work on.
As far as the coach goes the name everyone seems to want is Scott Frost. Now I do not want to disappoint Husker fans, but I do not see him coming here and changing the Huskers losing culture. Nebraska needs a big name coach who has proven to be a winner in a big time program or an assistant under a big name coach. Don't get me wrong I love Scott Frost as a coach, but he is not the answer. We need a guy who knows how to win and knows what it takes to get there right now. The problem is how does Nebraska find him. All the good coaches are locked up.
I hope Nebraska brings in a coach that has a proven track record as Nebraska fans deserve better then they have seen the last few years. It won't be easy, but the AD better start making phone calls now. Mike Riley is a good man, but was never a good fit for Nebraska Football.
No matter what anyone tells you the Cleveland Browns are not a work in progress, but in fact could be the worse team in the NFL. After watching the Cincinnati Bengals manhandle them 31-7, I think it is time for the Cleveland brass to rethink this rebuilding process.
The Browns have no kind of reliable wide receivers on this team. I am still trying to figure out how Kenny Britt got signed by the Browns over Terrelle Pryor. The offense is in shambles right now. They cannot run the ball or pass block, and toss in the yellow flags and you have a recipe for disaster.
This was the soft spot in the schedule for the Browns at least that is what they told us. They had the Colts, Bengals, and the Jets in consecutive weeks all were penciled in as wins so we were told. I wonder how that is working out for the front office, as fans are getting restless.
I will be honest if they do not win next week which I really do not see that happening they could very well not win this season. If I was Hue Jackson I would be worrying about my job, as the Browns are not improving at all. You have to feel sorry for Browns fans as how much more can they really take.
