Corn Flakes: No One Said It Was Going To Be Easy

Lots of blame to go around. I've seen everyone blamed from the TEs, WRs, QB's, O-Line and all coaches associated with them.

Husker Mike's Blasphemy: Nebraska's Offense Goes AWOL

Notable Quotes from Nebraska vs Texas Tech - Nebraska Football - Steven M. Sipple: NU offense needs fixing. Is Green the answer?
It’s become evident Nebraska should turn to Green to replace junior Zac Lee as the starting QB, in large part because Green would give the Huskers a much stronger and faster running threat than Lee. The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Green is a much more explosive athlete. Use Green running the option. At least sprinkle it in more often.

Commentary: It's About Trust | Husker Locker
You cannot – absolutely not – run a zone-blocking system without being quick, and tough. You don't have to be that big, and you don't have to pancake guys. But that first step has to be vicious. There can't be a hint of a leak. Roy Helu was flitting around all afternoon like a skier on a slalom course. He'd never admit it, but he got almost all of his yards on sheer improvisation. *The line is forcing Shawn Watson to alter the game plan. Oh, we'll knock Watson when it's on him. And some of Saturday was on him. But not much of it. Sorry, but when NU runs two of its basic – and often successful – playaction passes, and a Tech defensive lineman is in the backfield before the fake is done, you're not going to have much luck with anything. Watson was relegated to calling two-second slant pattern (that Zac Lee can't throw) and bubble screens that were misadventures.

NE - Huskers' Offense Blows a Fuse in Loss to Tech

Game notes: Huskers never recover from fumble return for score - Report card: Nebraska vs. Texas Tech
OVERALL (D) That was sloppy. Nebraska didn’t look like a very well-coached team. The 12 penalties — for a second straight game — are a sign of lack of discipline. The mental blunders help explain how Nebraska outyarded a high-powered Texas Tech team and still lost by three touchdowns. The defense is sound, but the offense has suddenly become a major concern. Credit Texas Tech for being far more prepared and for executing in areas Nebraska couldn’t. Big 12 North title, anyone? No, really … anyone?
