The local sports writers continue to rehash the football season and replay the Capitol One bowl game where our Nebraska Huskers lost 30-13 to the South Carolina Gamecocks. A 9-4 season is just not acceptable to many Husker fans. Many of us were frustrated this season by the play that varied from outstanding to awful. While Bo seemed to have "calmed -down" somewhat this year, it got away from him a couple times the other afternoon. And, as some sports writers have said, "The players tend to reflect the actions of the Coach". After having just read Tom Osborne's book, "Beyond the Final Score", I couldn't help but wonder what Osborne was going through during the game. I wonder how he reconciles the virtues of Transformational Leadership, which he espouses in his book, with the performance we are seeing in the football program. Our Church Foundation is sponsoring a One Book One Church program on February 1, 2012, when Osborne will be at the Seward High School to discuss his book. I'm sure the  matter of Leadership Style and Performance will be discussed. It should be an interesting evening.
