Keller Era at Nebraska officially a complete disaster, Athletic Director Pederson fired

This guy can explain what has gone on at Nebraska this season better than I can: Language warning, NSFW.

Now comes word over the wire that Nebraska's Athletic Director has been fired, with Nebraska chancellor citing "disappointment in the progress in the football team."

Here are Keller's stats in comparison with Carpenter's

PASSING              GP-GS   Effic Cmp-Att-Int   Pct  Yds  TD Lng Avg/G
Keller, Sam 7-7 133.18 156-246-10 63.4 1849 11 73 264.7
Carpenter, Rudy 7-7 158.85 132-199-7 66.3 1730 16 64 247.1

Keller has been pretty mediocre for all the hype, boasting a pass efficiency that is ranked #51 among quarterbacks, just ahead of U of A's Willie Tuitama. Ask U of A fans, and they'll tell you those kind of stats don't get the job done. Carpenter has the 12th best efficiency, just ahead of Hawaii's Colt Brennan. This all isn't on Keller either though; if Nebraska had anything resembling a division I defense they would probably still be in the top 25.

Keller wishes he would have stayed at ASU.Nebraska has a horrible defense.Great insight with Rudy and keller.Rudy is not throwing picks this year and that is the reason he's 8-0.Keep up the good work!Go Devils!Williehoopr
