The Huskers hope it is back to the future for their football program.
The Legend of Lincoln, Tom Osborne, punted coach Bill Callahan after last year's 5-&-7 campaign.
The athletic director then turned to a familiar name, Bo Pelini.
Pelini was an assistant during the Frank Solich era.
He became interim head coach when Solich was run, and many of those who wear corn cobs on their heads when they march to the stadium thought Pelini should've gotten the job on a full-time basis rather than Callahan.
Since leaving Lincoln, Pelini coached the defenses at Oklahoma then LSU.
He also has an NFL pedigree.
Among his stops in professional football, a term with Mike Sherman in Green Bay.
