“Should we hire him?”
Dirk Chatelain Omaha World-Herald

Imagine this scenario: It’s the last week of November 2007. Harvey Perlman and Tom Osborne have asked you to tag along with them as they interview candidates to replace Bill Callahan.

In Baton Rouge, La., you interview Bo Pelini. You ask him, “What will you have accomplished in five years?” He explains in detail, game-by-game, good and bad, everything that has happened from 2008-12.

You walk out of the interview. Osborne and Perlman look at you and ask, “What do you think? Should we hire him?”

What would you say: Yes or No.

Drop me an email or Twitter response. I’ll include the results in Wednesday’s Mad Chatter.
