Rimington name is being bandied about, but who knows. Was contacted for the interim, so who knows if he will use it as an evaluation period for the permanent slot.
I just don't see Rimmington as an AD. He runs a charity, he knows how to raise money, I suppose... But what does he know about running an athletic department? Maybe he can come in as a familiar face, but really, is he qualified? Really like the guy, but again, we need the right guy for the job.
I've heard Ed Stewart's name thrown around... he might be interesting.
Del Conte is the best outside name I've seen. The worst is Kevin White, (that had better been a goddamn joke, because we're done if that happens).
But... I think the guy who I think should get the job is the guy Perlman passed over for Eichorst. Paul Meyers. He's raised a shit-ton of money for the university and carries a lot of clout with our donors. He was a guy who everyone respected and liked. He can come back in, smooth things over with donors, and hopefully get the AD back on track. It's just too bad there's 5 years of shit on the floor.

Had a nice thick ribeye at The Green Bottle in Hunstville prepared sous vide. My co-workers were ribbing me about being particular when it came to ordering steaks, and we had been directed here by some of the local's we were working with during the week. The waiter asked if I would like to speak to the chef, and the guys all wanted him to come out and assure me his steak was worth ordering I have been all over the country with several of these guys, and they had seen me send back steaks at Ruth's Chris', Fleming's and just about every other steak joint we visited. Hey, if you are charging an arm and a leg for a meal, it had better be damn good or I will get in your grille. Actually, they barred me from ever coming back to one of the Ruth's Chris', not that I care. Fucking worthless over priced piece of shoe leather that you can get at Denny's for breakfast. And I told them as much. The manager didn't appreciate it. Fuck him.
Anyway, the chef takes me back to the kitchen an he has maybe 8-9 glorious ribeyes (bone on) sitting in a sous vide bath at 120°. His take was he can leave the steaks in the for a long time (his had been in for 12 hours) and the meat cannot over cook. He let me select a steak (they charged by weight and I didn't take a small one) and he pulled it out, opened it up and threw it on a 700° grille to sear it. Brought it out with asparagus spears (grilled naturally) and garlic mashed potatoes. Spot on medium rare (125 for me°) completely through and through. Wonderfully tender and since it had been cooking for so long, the flavors (garlic, butter, etc) had penetrated nicely into the meat. Just as HH said.
Fucker was awesome! I was kind though, and let each of my table mates have a bite (there really was plenty) so they could understand what a good steak actually tasked like. They all agreed that it was the best steak they ever tasted. One guy asked where else he could get a steak this good. I looked him dead in the eye and said "My backyard"
That being said, sous vide rocks.

I think he wants you to say that Riley sucks because he hasn't averaged 9 wins a year at a dumpster fire of locations like Oregon state because Pelini's 9 wins a year were mediocre.
that's like saying apple pie is better than pulled pork for the buffet breakfast on the second tue of the month during the summer in Kenya.

He did well to turn Eli around this year. We can't bitch and moan about not having a QB coach to help develop talent.
Bringing a whole staff with you as a coach is working pretty well for Jerry Kill
So funny on so many levels.
Bo keeps assistants out of loyalty, familiarity, etc., and he's an idiot.
Riley does it, and it's all good because it's working for Jerry Fucking KIll? Really?
Enjoy that 5-7 season next year.
I'll be at the Louisville games. They just happen to have a competent AD, and hired the best coach available when they had an opening. Sounds like a damn strategy, huh?
Unlike Opie and the current administration at NU.

seems like sour grapes from someone who didn't perform his job well and rather than try to get better he makes excuses and puts on the tin foil hat and talks about how everyone is out to get him.
I understand being upset when your boss or upper management or whoever fucks you over, and the need to vent about it, but that's when you go out and have a few beers with your buddies and swear and vent and rip into the people you think are asshats...
but don't go on a childish tirade basically bashing your former employer and bosses to a bunch of 18-22 year olds. that's not responsible, that's not teaching, that's not being a role model.
I can understand saying "hey, I never really meshed or saw eye to eye with my new boss and I felt I wasn't being supported or wanted and so I was sort of expecting this situation, and I'll make the most of it, just like all of you should make the most of the opportunities you have here"
it's like a cult.
he's convinced these kids for years that he's the only one that believes in them and is there for them, and that the school and administration and media and fans are all out to get them.
it's obvious the job was too much for him and he basically said he'd rather be sitting in an office doing X's and O's shit than managing the program. it also doesn't reflect well that you come out and admit that you don't know what the board of regents does... that's like one of us saying we don't know what the board of directors does at our company.
I just hope the new staff can un-brainwash the kids in the program. hopefully some less rigid and more simplified offensive and defensive schemes that let the kids play fast instead of thinking too much will help with the transition.

And fuck this fucking spin from journalists and idiot HMax posters, how he's an amazing coach but just didn't have the resources and so that's why he couldn't win more than 9 games (and that only once in a great while). You know what good coaches do? They win no matter where they're at.
Took over a Ball St team that was fucking wretched. All he did was increase their win total by 6 in his first year, and increase it again the next year. Then he went to a middling, .500ish Utah program and won the conference title his first two years, going a perfect 12-0 in year 2. Then he went to Florida.
Took over a Michigan St program that hadn't won more than 6 games in any of the previous four seasons and gone winless the season before he arrived. Went .500 or better his first four seasons there before breaking through to a 9-2 record his fifth year. Then he went to LSU.
Took a Youngstown St team that hadn't been to the postseason in the 5 years previous before his arrival to a conference title and playoffs in his second year and over the next 13 seasons only had two sub-.500 seasons, 9 playoff appearances, 7 double digit win seasons, and four national championships.
Probably the best comparison, as Snyder took over literally the worst program in the country. From wikipedia: "Kansas State had a cumulative record of 299–510 (.370) in 93 years of play, which was easily the most losses of any team in Division I-A at the time. The school had been to only one bowl game (the 1982 Independence Bowl), had not won a conference title since 1934 and had enjoyed four winning seasons in the previous 44 years (including two in the previous 34 years). The program had also not won a game since October 1986, going 0-26-1 in that time."
By Snyder's 5th season he won 9 games and started a streak of 11 consecutive bowl appearances and eight consecutive 9+ win seasons. He didn't hover around .500, he won a fuckload of games and build Kansas St up from the worst team in all of football into a perennial contender for the conference title.
Frank fucking Solich
Ohio had gone 11-35 over the last four seasons. In Franks 10 seasons there, they have gone .500 or better 8 times, 9 or more wins 4 times. So, 80% of the time he has a winning record, 40% of the time it's 9+. Let's compare that to Mike RIley.
Before his first tenure, OSU went 11-33 the four seasons previous -- almost identical to Ohio. 14 seasons at Oregon St. Eight .500 or better seasons. Four 9+ win seasons. So, 57% of the time he has a winning record. 29% of the time it's 9+.
Given that they entered into almost identical situations, the stats show that Frank Solich is an approximately 50% better coach than Mike Riley, going by record. We got a significantly worse version of Frank Solich. Enjoy irrelevance, y'all.

The only way I was "on board" with the firing goes like this:
Ginger: Bo, fire both coordinators, hire real ones, and you can keep you job, and btw, probably win a game worth winning.
Bo: Fuck you, I'm the Head Football Coach.
Ginger: Not anymore, you're not.
Other than that, I wasn't "on board" with firing Bo.
2-7 in the conference this year for Mr. Riley. Seems like a nice dude. I'd love to give him a chance. Just don't see it. He's lost everywhere he's gone. 14-30 something in the NFL, losing in the PAC 12, blah, blah, blah.
Maybe he's the proverbial "right fit". I guess we'll see, I just don't believe they didn't consult us on the hire.

There he goes again. Off with it's head. (for the weekend)
66%. Hell, even with Bo's balls in his mouth Louie expects Bo to win more than 2/3 of his games.
yes , but we have not been banning you every friday since the Beginning of redout. Right now karma got you 2-1.. not bad not bad.
I don't put much stock in karma. How many Conference Titles have we won during the Redout era? Wait, maybe Redout is the problem. Godammit, Coop Sucks!
you haven't figured out you are karma sacrifice?
As long as we can avoid going down the HP/BRB path of "all in even after it caves in" pack mentality and Coop doesn't shutdown the compound hope is not lost. I enjoy the heavy dose of scarcasm around here.
We usually blame Wille for fucking up threads -- but based on your statement that would just seem so..... wrong.
why is there so much logical discussion in this thread?
Is this how you guys ran off Digger? Weekly vacations to allow your pussy to heal?
Such a bunch of bitches!
We're just giving you time to heal your asshole from your daily ripping.
It's a mercy banning.
You can't embarrass yourself if your banned.
It's a bitch move plain and simple. The spirit of Redout is that nobody gets banned and anything goes. Banning me only reinforces my theory that this place is becoming more like BRB/HP each and every day.
I didn't join redout to make friends. I came here because I enjoy talking Husker football and live for a good debate.
I don't mind taking shit from you guys but if you fags can't take the heat then what is the fucking point!?

The quintessential reason why Grandpa carries a gun.
Please take time to read this and pay particular attention to "A Little Gun History" about half way down staggering numbers!
Why Carry a Gun?
My old Grandpa said to me, 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin'.'
I don't carry a gun to kill people; I carry a gun to keep from being killed.
I don't carry a gun to scare people; I carry a gun because sometimes this World can be a scary place.
I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid; I carry a gun because there are real threats in the World.
I don't carry a gun because I'm evil; I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the World.
I don't carry a gun because I hate the government; I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
I don't carry a gun because I'm angry; I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone; I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy; I carry a gun because, when I die and go to Heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man; I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate; I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
I don't carry a gun because I love it; I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
Police protection is an oxymoron: Free citizens must protect themselves because police do not protect you from crime; they just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
Personally, I carry a gun because I am too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'!
A LITTLE GUN HISTORY
PLEASE DONT THINK FOR A MOMENT, THAT THIS COULDNT HAPPEN IN OUR COUNTRY ALSO !!!!!!
In 1929, the Soviet Union established gun control:
From 1929 to 1953, about 20 million dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
In 1911, Turkey established gun control:
From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Germany established gun control in 1938:
From 1939 to 1945, a total of 13 million Jews and others who were unable to defend themselves were rounded up and exterminated.
China established gun control in 1935: From 1948 to
1952, 20 million political dissidents, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Guatemala established gun control in 1964:
From 1964 to 1981, 100,000 Mayan Indians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Uganda established gun control in 1970:
From 1971 to 1979, 300,000 Christians, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
Cambodia established gun control in 1956:
From 1975 to 1977, one million educated people, unable to defend themselves, were rounded up and exterminated.
56 million defenseless people were rounded up and exterminated in the 20th Century because of gun control.
You won't see this data on the US evening news, or hear politicians disseminating this information.
Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens.
With guns, we are 'citizens'; without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WW II, the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
Gun owners in the USA are the largest armed forces in the World!
If you value your freedom, please spread this anti- gun control message to all of your friends.
The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense.
The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES A GUN TO EVERY HOUSEHOLD! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT ISSUES AND TRAINS EVERY ADULT IN THE USE OF A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD
