In an earlier prophesy, I predicted the impending demise of Bill “Norv Turner is a step up from me” Callahan. Callahan was the hand picked 4th choice of AD Steve “big money” Pederson, the genius who fired a 75% coach in order to install a 59% coach.

LINCOLN, Neb. — Nebraska athletic director Steve Pederson was fired Monday, two days after the school’s once-mighty football team was rocked with its worst home loss in nearly a half-century.
Pederson, along with coach Bill Callahan, has been heavily criticized after a series of one-sided losses this season. The most recent was a 45-14 loss to Oklahoma State on Saturday with former Cornhuskers coach Tom Osborne and his 1997 national title whiners team in attendance.
Actually, this is a said day. Pederson gave the program a much needed dose of irrelevance and suckitude. And the accompanying national indifference to NU’s plight. As a Buff fan, whatever knocks the cornholers off their self righteous trough is fine with me. (Victories over them are better, of course.)
Clock is ticking, Bill. Might want to hold off on remodeling your powder room.
