Nebraska's Players React to Mike Riley's Hiring

Thursday afternoon, Nebraska shocked the college football world by hiring Oregon State's Mike Riley to replace former head coach Bo Pelini. Reaction from the media has been mixed - many think he's a great hire, while others question his track record. Nebraska's players even appear to be split on the move. Some are "glad" that they're seniors and moving on, while others are excited to welcome Riley to the program.

Josh Mitchell, a senior cornerback, doesn't seem to be impressed with the decision.
