Nebraska fans aren’t having fun watching the game Saturday night against Ohio State, a 56-14 loss. The Huskers struggled in every way against the No. 9 Buckeyes, and fans are demanding changes.
Ohio State went up 35-0 in the first half at Nebraska. The Huskers lost 38-17 to Wisconsin last week and got blown out at home on Saturday in another visit from a top-10 team.
Much of the ire is being directed toward Nebraska coach Mike Riley. Specifically, fans are calling for his dismissal.
Here are some reactions to Nebraska’s struggles against Ohio State
“Have never seen anyone less interested in coaching a game than Mike Riley is right now. #Nebraska’s AD currently turbodialing Scott Frost.”
“Have fun during retirement with all that money your are stealing @Coach_Riley.”
“You’re making it extremely hard for me to write the huge season ticket check you’re about to ask for.”
“Does anyone know if Mike Riley is *trying* to get fired? I’m just curious?”
“You need to resign from your position. You are a joke as head coach. Get on a plane tomorrow and never come back.”

I mean Mike Riley might get fired and abandoned at the airport tonight and he's playing at home.

If I was @Coach_Riley, I’d rather resign at halftime than have to pick up the mic after this one!

Nebraska fired AD Shawn Eichorst earlier this season. Dave Rimington is the interim athletic director.
Riley was 18-14 at Nebraska going into the game on Saturday.
