Corn Flakes The Day After Idaho

So a collection of what I've found interesting about the game yesterday. You'll notice a trend of "sloppy" in the descriptions. Also interesting, Martinez has yet to throw a TD.

So yep more stuff to worry, argue, and generally freak out about if you want.


The cats don't freak out much

Tom's Takes: Martinez on the move -

5. We should get used to watching Taylor Martinez run for touchdowns. Last week's 46-yarder against actually awful Western Kentucky was no fluke. He broke another big play this week with a 67-yard touchdown to put Nebraska up 10-0 in the second quarter -- and added another with a 20-yard score in the third. That gives the redshirt freshman five touchdowns and 284 yards rushing in two games. He has yet to throw a touchdown, but if Martinez proves himself to be competent in the passing game, he'll stay on the field and give Nebraska the big-play threat it lacked all last season. Those legs may decide how the Big 12 shakes out in conference play. His 106 yards on 12-of-17 passing were efficient but won't impress anyone. If he continues at this pace, he may overtake Robert Griffin (who quietly threw for a career high 297 yards in an impressive 34-6 win over Buffalo) as the conference's best running threat at quarterback.

DeJon Gomes, S, Nebraska: The Blackshirts were full of big plays in a 38-17 win over Idaho: five interceptions, two for touchdowns, and seven sacks. But Gomes made the day's biggest play of the game when he intercepted Idaho's Nathan Enderle, a Nebraska native, and returned it 40 yards for a touchdown. Eight of his 10 tackles also came in the first half while Nebraska raced to a 31-3 halftime lead with a 28-point second quarter. Gomes and safety Rickey Thenarse each recorded their first career touchdown after returning interceptions in the second quarter. CFN Rankings - No. 1 to 120 - Week 2

They have Nebraska at #9

Five things: What we learned, what we didn't -

Jermarcus Hardrick took tough road to major-college football

Nice article on Yoshi. I knew he grew up in a tough area, and as the old cliche' goes - what doesn't kill you makes you stronger - means that Hardrick should be damned good by the time his Husker career is over. Or maybe this week. - JJ

Idaho QB Enderle heads home to face No. 6 Huskers

When no scholarship offer came from former Nebraska coach Bill Callahan five years ago, Enderle was content to don the Vandals' silver and gold.

Enderle, Danny Woodhead - you get the idea that Bill Callahan just hated North Platte for some reason known only to him? - JJ
