Who could forget the 2009 Cornhusker poster schedule, which featured former former coaches Bob Devaney, Tom Osborne and Frank Solich along with current coach Bo Pelini. Missing was Bill Callahan, who was 27-22 in four seasons before getting fired. Callahan was brought in to change the culture of Nebraska football, which meant teaching the Cornhuskers how to throw the ball. Nebraska lost its second game under Callahan to Southern Mississippi, then was crushed in game five by Texas Tech, 70-10. Cornhusker fans knew at this point a culture change was not what the program needed. Nonetheless, the hardworking and honest Midwesterners gave Callahan four years before sending him out the door. Enter Bo Pelini, who has brought the physical style back to Lincoln. "This Season We Finish" is the Cornhuskers' motto, which presumably means kick the hell out of Texas on Oct. 16.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at) gmail.com.
Last year, the site displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 56 for 2010. Thanks to Paul!
