The Kansas and Nebraska Acts

The new BCS poll is out this week, and the good news is that 3 of the top 6 teams are in the Big 12 (and two of those are from the Big 12 North):

1. Ohio State
2. LSU
3. Oregon
4. Kansas
5. Oklahoma
6. Missouri

The bad news is that Kansas jumped from 8 to 4 on account of our Nebraska Cornhuskers’ record-breakingly bad performance. We have lost more games in a row than ever before, gave up more points in a half than ever before, and gave up more points total than ever before.

The question is should Coach Callahan and Defensive Coordinator Cosgrove be fired now, or stay on so this season is unambiguously theres.

From the Fire Callahan and Cosgrove side:

Coaching: 0 Kansas scored 19 points the last two weeks…they quadrupled that yesterday thanks to Coz’s defense and Callahan completely abandoning the running game to put the game completely in the hands of a first time starter at quarterback. Please guys… don’t damage your careers any more, just resign today.
Overall: F It’s over Bill. Coach Osborne, please call an audible and do what needs to be done now.

From the Let Callahan and Cosgrove hang perspective

Forget the idea that he (or Bill Callahan) should resign or be fired. He shouldn’t. He shouldn’t be let off the hook. At the end of the season, we can write about how this is the worst season in Nebraska’s history and it can be attributed to him without any asterisks attached. This becomes more important as times marches on. Think about that for a minute. When my sons are old enough to have their own kids, they can look in a record book somewhere and Kevin Cosgrove’s name will be attached to this season.

The best summary is from the NU v. KU open thread:

now witnessing the death throes of the Callasham regime.
