Corn Flakes: The Day After Washington

Well that was fun.

Look Washington may not be that good, but Nebraska played like a top 10 team today.

Yes, T-Mart played like a red-shirt freshman on the road for the first time today, missed some throws, held the ball too long, ect, but what he brings is the ability to take any run to the house. We have an explosive offense my friends.

K-State looms with a power running game that will have to be dealt with, but for this week (and probably next) can we just enjoy this win?

As per the contract, links of interest about yesterdays game.

Washington may turn out to be that bad defensively. But until further notice, Nebraska may suddenly have an offense, too.

Husker Mike's Blasphemy: Huskers Make Husky Fans "Sleepless in Seattle"

At times this afternoon, the Huskers made it look easy, seemingly scoring at will on big play after big play. Is this a sign that Nebraska is "back" and "national championship worthy"? No. Not yet.

I thought we agreed never to talk about being "back"? -JL

Wrapping the Big 12 afternoon games - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

Nebraska 56, Washington 21: What a dominating second half from the Huskers on both sides of the ball. The defense limited Jake Locker and forced him into a pick-six that gave them a four-touchdown lead. And we can probably count on seeing Taylor Martinez channel more T-Magic throughout the rest of the season. Washington's defense isn't anything to be scared of, but Martinez still looked like a guy the Huskies had no hope of covering. Nebraska's offensive line paved the way for three 100-yard rushers, led by Martinez with 137 yards. If Nebraska's offense keeps playing like this, it's bad news for the rest of the Big 12. The defense hasn't looked dominant, but to win a Big 12 title, they won't have to be if the Huskers keep running the ball like this. Tonight they're gonna party like it's 1999. Sorry, Bill Callahan.

Scout.com: CFN Analysis - Nebraska Runs Over Washington

It might be time to add Nebraska to the short list of schools in contention for a national championship. It’s early, but it’s starting to look like the class of the Big12. The one thing Husker fans must keep in mind before feeling too good about this game is this: The Pac-10 Conference owns a lot of woeful defenses. One day after Cal got eviscerated by Nevada, UW absorbed a pronounced pounding on its home turf. Nebraska needs to beat someone far more credentialed than Washington before it is viewed as a legitimate national-title contender.

NU running backs get in the game in a big way

Watson said he'd heard from some people -- his neighbor included -- about Nebraska's running backs not getting enough touches in Nebraska's first two games.

Watson should go take his neighbor and take his hammer. What's up now? -JL
