Now is not a good time to be Nebraska defensive coordinator Kevin Cosgrove. Even in recent wins Nebraska has been giving up a ton of points. But worst of all are those 76 points that Kansas hung up on the team a few weeks back.
Naturally Cosgrove will probably get the axe at the end of the year. Or maybe sooner, if one psychotic fan gets his wish.
It seems Cosgrove got some pretty threatening phone calls after the Kansas debacle
According to court documents obtained Wednesday, one expletive-laced message suggested Cosgrove go back "where you came from you ... before I ... kill ya."
A Nebraska fan who takes football way too seriously? What are the odds of that?
The messages were left between midnight and 3 a.m. on Nov. 4. Cosgrove said he received "numerous" phone messages containing vulgar language in past weeks, according to court documents.
Captain Charlotte Evans of the school's police department said this is the first time this season campus police have been called about possible threats against a member of the football coaching staff.
Well that's actually fairly comforting to learn. I would have thought that by this point in the season every Nebraska coach - especially Callahan - would have received at least one death threat.
