Former Nebraska QB Says It's Time for a Change

The natives are getting restless, not only in Austin, but apparently Lincoln, Nebraska, too.
After an embarrassing loss to UCLA -- and being up by 18 in the first half -- some Cornhusker fans and ex-players are ready for head coach Bo Pelini to go.
One of those players is former Nebraska quarterback Tommie Frazier, who blasted Pelini on Twitter.
"After letting it sink in for about 4 hours I still [sic] struggling. It's time to get rid of the defensive play caller, the Dc, lb dl and db coaches. I hate saying this but this crap is getting old. How in the hell do you not make adjustments or put your players in the position to compete? If this is what is going to happen for the remainder of the season, count me out. I don't care if we lose a game but the way we are losing is just not what #Nebraska fans deserve. I have fought, bled, and cried over this program. I didn't do all that for the program to become what it has today. Time for change! I will comment about the offense this week on Tommie's X's and O's. Trust me you don't want to miss it." #Huskers
Dang, that's pretty harsh words -- and a pretty crafty promo for himself stuck in the middle of his rant -- but basically, Frazier is right. Nebraska football used to be known for a great running game and tough defense. Saturday, the Huskers looked inept on both sides of the ball.
Once UCLA woke up from their own daze, they just put it on the home team, who had no answers for the Bruins. None.
Instead of just issuing a 'no comment' about what Frazier said, Pelini issued this statement when asked about the comments:
Coach Pelini, here's some unsolicited advice: You don't criticize the guy who won your program's last national championship and who is a Hall of Famer, especially when your team is struggling. Because you won't win that argument.
In fact, I feel comfortable speaking for a lot of Nebraska fans when I say put away the black jerseys, shut up, and get back to work, coach!
