    UNI Time for Farley...

    It's time for Farley to go. Each year he slips more and more.


    Pro:
    • Defense - Gives up big plays time and time again. Farley insists in playing a zone pass defense and continues to get burned year after year.
    • Offense - Continues to struggle with the run after the absence of David Johnson. Biggest criticism is still trying for a running QB in the option play. Give it up! Hasn't worked for 7 years.
    • Offense - Fails to hire an offensive coordinator after driving away their long term coordinator. Farley thinks he can call the plays from the sideline.
    • Offense - Play calling is stagnant and very predictable. Where the fans are yelling out the play before the hike.
    • Nepotism with his youngest son playing... yes, his older son played for UNI as well. Questionable if he is the best choice. Has him playing defense and offense.
    • Nepotism - This time with his daughter taking the reins as UNI Director of football operations. WTF is this?


    Con:
    • His leaving will cause a transition period, but one that is necessary for the program to grow.

    Meh. We were supposed to lose and they are 3/3 on 4th down conversions. I’ve been mad at him before, but not today.

    To be fair to this situation

    UNIs DOPS guy got offered a position by the Seattle Seahawks in late July in their scouting department.

    Jamie grew up in the UNI football program. The DOPS position is pretty easy and requires no football knowledge- which she actually has.

    It was a quick hire because it needed to be. She reports to the AD, not to Mark.

    As for the topic of this thread - yes. I’m hoping he gets a LB or DC role on Scott Frosts Nebraska staff. The buy out gets taken care of and we go aggressively after an offensive mind

    I have been saying all year, the kids are no longer playing Farley is going to retire. We are on the cusp but we need some change. We have the talent.

    We never had the DBs to win this game in good weather.

    Talking with some other people and a few names floated out that I really liked. One of them was Tom Manning who is the OC at Iowa State.

    He makes 350k now. Give him Farley’s deal and make him the HC. What he’s done with ISU and Toledo before that is nuts. Put an offensive mind with the talent we have and let it run.

    Re: UNI Time for Farley...

    I knew Mark back in day so I'm biased but IMO this was a transition year due to all of the changes on the coaching staff so my expectations were lower and this team exceeded them. Next year is more important to knowing where the program is headed.

    I was also there when they pushed Mudra out to make room for Earle Bruce and that was a huge mistake. This doesn't mean that you don't make a change but it does mean that you need to understand the risk that the change could backfire and the program could go backwards.

    If there is a change, what about Paup coming back from Minnesota?

    From Minnesota? He's learned how to become a loser there, why would you want that.

    He’s been there a year. He was at UNI for 4 years before that.

    He makes 100k less than Farley makes.
