    Nebraska AD Steve Pederson fired today after their worst home loss since 1958. Is Bill Callahan next?

    Yahweh willing, he's just the first domino.

    Rumormongering on the radio has Tom Osborne stepping in as AD with Dave Rimington serving under him for OJT, then taking over 3-4 years later.

    Once again, the irrational, out-of-control college football fans win. Fire people first, ask questions later.

    Well, did he leave Nebraska football better than he left Pitt fooball?

    At least the school colors are still the same.

    A friend of mine who is a huge Cornshucker fan said the high-profile boosters met on Saturday with the university president and told him they have enough money to buy out Pederson, Callahan and all his assistants.

    That said, Pederson was awful. But keeping him around for far too long and then suddenly canning him after an embarassing football loss leads everyone to believe that the fan base runs that university.

    Should never have fired Frank Solich.

    And yes. Callahan will be canned in about six weeks.

    The fan base doesn't. However, the boosters have major pull there.

    And Pederson just got a new big contact.
