Corn Flakes: Moving to the Post-Season

As we move into the off-season the big question will be the offense. Here's a quote to think about-

"Very few really seek knowledge in this world. Mortal of immortal, few really ask. On the contrary, they try to wring from the unknown the answers they have already shaped in their own minds - justification, explanations, forms of consolation without which they can't go on." - Ann Rice, The Vampire Lestat

So I guess try to put aside your preconceived ideas about the offense. Too many fans don't like Watson because Callahan hired him, and just as many don't like Cotton because he represents the old guard. So keep an open mind, and try  to understand where the struggles are coming from.  Mike thinks it's from a lack of talent, some think it's play-calling, others blame the O-Line. It's probably a combination of all that and more.

If that's too deep for you here's some cats.

2. Nebraska: It was amazing that the Cornhuskers were so close to the Big 12 title, considering all of their struggles on offense. But even after producing five first downs and 106 total yards against Texas, the Cornhuskers were close because of the play of their defense, particularly Suh. Some of the comments that the Pelini brothers made after the game that were reported in the Omaha World-Herald will only increase the intensity of next season’s game when Texas visits Nebraska. But after Saturday night, there’s no doubt that Bo Pelini has pushed the Cornhuskers program ahead faster than most expected. And the Holiday Bowl will be another way for the Cornhuskers to continue their growth.

"It was just miscommunication,'' Anderson said. "That's the way it was all night. The chemistry of the team, I don't know. Everybody was on a different page. Everybody was trying to do their own thing, and it wasn't working.
