What happened to Nebraska football?

Off topic! It is almost just sad watching them nowadays. They used to own the Big 8, and dang, they went 60-3 from '93-'98? Holy cow?! Some of those players won more national championships than lost games. What the heck happened? I would love to see them do good again. Maybe their new coach can bring them back to competency at least. I live in Oklahoma, and I miss them coming here and playing OU. Those were always good games. I guess you can't stay on top forever, but dang you would think a 900+ win program could at least put a good team on the field most years.

Recruiting a lot more competitive now especially for a team based in Lincoln Nebraska. Nothing against Lincoln, or Nebraska, but young guys are going to gravitate toward programs that are good and warm most all year round.

Nebraska joined the Big 10, a much stronger conference than the Big 8/12. Does this explain it?

Yall are probably right. Hopefully someday they can be back. I am somewhat of a closet Husker fan myself

since I have a lot of family from Nebraska I've heard quite a bit about this.
the main thing apparently was Tom Osborns retirement, the program never recovered after that. None of the head coaches hired since have put together a successful football program and none have lasted. Whether they had long enough to build their own program or not is up for debate, but NE fans expect a degree of success, so if the coach can't deliver they get the boot.
One of Osborns former players who became a coach in his own right Scott Frost has returned in the last couple years as head coach and started to rebuild a successful program. Maybe you will get a good fight again soon

They havenít been great since coach Osborne retired. Joining the Big 10 didnít help, either.

The Big10 is a better conference, but they(NE) hadn't done anything long before that. Recruiting to a school that isn't in a glitzy state can be tough, and doesn't currently have a strong program is even tougher. I'm a Boilermaker. Purdue is the "Cradle of Quarterbacks" and it's tough to consistently be in the top 25-50% of the conference.
The biggest problem is most conferences can't afford to match player salary like the SEC...
