Week 10 Husker Report Card: Kansas

New, 3 comments

Last week, I was accused of sucking up to Bill Callahan and Kevin Cosgrove.  I assure you, that won't happen this week...

Offensive Line:  B Did you see the tackle Carl Nicks made?  Best defensive play of the day by far!
Running Back:  B- Roy Helu had the best day of the backs.  Marlon Lucky showed his speed on that swing pass, but stood around and failed to block for Joe Ganz on the first touchdown scramble.  Quentin Castille came in cold and coughed the ball up.
Quarterback:  B Ok, 4 interceptions were not good.  But it was his first start, and his coaches abandoned the running game in the first half, basically forcing him to try and win this game single handed.  That's not Ganz' fault.
Wide Receivers:  A Nice catches by Nate Swift and especially Maurice Purify were the main bright spots for the Huskers yesterday.
Defensive Line:  0 Not an F.  A zero.
Linebackers:  0  Yep...injuries decimated this group, but after watching Phillip Dillard get carried into the end zone, they get a zero as well.
Secondary:  0 At times, it looked like the Keystone Kops running around back there.
Coaching:  0 Kansas scored 19 points the last two weeks...they quadrupled that yesterday thanks to Coz's defense and Callahan completely abandoning the running game to put the game completely in the hands of a first time starter at quarterback.  Please guys... don't damage your careers any more, just resign today.
Overall:  F  It's over Bill.  Coach Osborne, please call an audible and do what needs to be done now.

Elsewhere in College Football:
Missouri:  A  Tigers seem to have found a defense to match their offense.
SEC Defenses: D Does they even exist anymore?     22, 49, 34, 31, 3 (a 1-AA team), 7 (a Sun Belt team), 41, 34, 36, 48 points were given up by SEC teams yesterday.
Boston College: C- Can't keep hoping for last minute comebacks.
South Florida: D- Well, it was fun while it lasted.
