Just wondering if 590AM would pick up a press conference if these rumors are true and there is in fact a press conference in the morning??

We will carry ANY press conference live in the coming weeks on Big Sports 590 as you would expect.

Thanks

can we tell buffett to buy out all their contracts and the ricketts i heard they're pretty pissed.

That $40 million number seems pretty crazy to me. That's a lot of money. And why would anyone pay off the debt now? What does that have to do with what's happening today?

The stuff that got posted last sounds a lot more plausible.

Well, Steve's gone. More at 4pm.

You really think they canned Cosgrove and Callahan, too?

The first part of the rumor is true. Pederson is gone -- FINALLY!

Coach Watson makes sense since he was head coach of Southern Illinois for a couple years and also is QB coach who hopefully can keep our big QB recruit from St. Louis.

The key for this coaching change, which is imminent, is how they handle it with recruiting.

Tom Osborne teaches at UNL and is in consulting work for athletic departments. Making him interim AD makes sense. Hell, he wanted to be governor, so I think he has the energy for this!

This rumor seems to have some truth to it. I've got to believe, though, that the interim AD will be the one who will fire Callahan -- or even, perhaps, the new, permanent AD. The head of Pederson should keep the fans from revolting for at least another week or two.

Matt:

Time to brush up on your pronunciation of "Osborne."

It's "Oz-BURN" as in "sunburn."
