I know what you're thinking, but before you bite my head off, hear me out.
Would the power option have really worked in the age of quick and often scoring pass-happy spread offenses?
Would Nebraska been able to recruit high caliber prospects? Could they even find quality prospects for the power option, when so many high schools are becoming more and more pass happy shotgun/spread?
So I raise a question to you Nebraska fans:
Was Bill Callahan a necessary evil?
And yes, I know how he ran the program to the ground as well, alienated himself from almost every Husker tradition, and is the most hated person in Nebraska.
Just ask yourself where Nebraska would be without him.
