Ted Carter left the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the lurch on Tuesday when he took the president’s job for Ohio State, and it means more instability in Lincoln.
Ted Carter built up quite the reputation as the president of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. Now he’s going to be taking that rep to a Big Ten rival in Ohio State.
The news rocked Nebraska Cornhuskers nation when things moved fast and furiously. From report to confirmation, in a matter of hours, the biggest tidbit from this news is that there is now more instability in Lincoln.
We all had to hope that the hiring of Matt Rhule was the end of the instability in the athletic program, at least for a little bit. However, now a man that Rhule himself said was an esteemed leader and a calming voice leaves another hole at the university that will be hard to fill.
It gets even more complicated because of the move the Board of Regents made that gave Carter more power over the Nebraksa Cornhuskers athletic department. Now it won’t be Carter wielding that power.
Who it will be is a big-time mystery at this point. One would hope it will be someone who can fill Carter’s shoes. That won’t be an easy task.
Matt Rhule show moved to Mondays
The Nebraska football coaches’ show has been on Sundays, but with Matt Rhule in town the program has been moved to 6:30 pm on Mondays. The university announced the change in day and time earlier this week:
"“The Husker Football Show will air on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. CT. The show will air on KMTV in the Omaha area, KSNB Local4 in the Lincoln, Grand Island, Hastings and Kearney areas, on KNOP News 2 in North Platte and on NBC Nebraska in Scottsbluff. The show will also appear on News Channel Nebraska throughout the week.”"
Nebraska Cornhuskers football head coach Matt Rhule might not be Deion Sanders, but it appears he’s pretty damn close to Prime Time in Lincoln.
