It’s Monday. You get to go to work, and, if you live outside Nebraska like I do, face the “What happened?” question about 350 times. Some people truly want to know. Some people don’t care, but act like they do. And then there’s that other bunch who use it as a way of twisting the knife.
Thing is, I’m not sure what to tell them other than everything bad that could have happened appeared to. Every player, every phase of the game, the coaching staff, everything turned to crap in this game.
You could ask yourself whether it would’ve been better for Nebraska to run the ball in the second half of that game and run the clock and give it up then it would be to witness what we did. Mike had it right in his report card yesterday that it did look a lot like the Texas Tech loss and I don’t need to be reminded of that one anymore than you do.
Nebraska has a tough Minnesota team coming up this weekend. The Gophers are 7-2 and being overlooked by everyone. Minnesota isn’t splashy in any area, but they are solid all around. If Tommy Armstrong can’t go, or if the huskers don’t get their crap back together, Nebraska could easily lose this game.
I hope your week starts well.
Even though Nebraska no longer controls its destiny in what has been a renaissance season for the Big Ten, the Huskers still cling to meaningful measures of hope in the aftermath of their second-worst loss in program history Saturday night at Ohio State.
Gophers football coach Tracy Claeys expects gamesmanship out of Nebraska before the two Big Ten West division contenders meet Saturday night.
Minnesota is 7-2 for the third time in four years. Yet no one — not even Gopher fans — seems to be the least bit impressed.
Our weekly outlook on the Maryland football program.
The game turned into a shootout in the closing quarter, even after Damion Terry replaced an injured Tyler O’Connor at quarterback. For the home team, Jeff George Jr. led some crucial late drives after having a rough day for much of the game.
It would appear that everyone within the Iowa Football program has quit on this season, so it’s time we do the same.
No Matt Millen, this is not a "solid team"
Closing the book on Northwestern and seeing what’s next for Wisconsin.
Here’s the postgame press conference from Saturday afternoon.
The Bears fall 62-22. What happened before the game was not okay either.
Now, I know it’s TECHNICALLY the correct ruling, but HOW IN THE WORLD DOES ONE PENALTY OFFSET FOUR PERSONAL FOULS???
2. If you want to accuse the AP poll of SEC bias, Texas A&M is a pretty good case Speaking of Texas A&M, the Aggies fell just three spots in this week’s AP poll, dropping from No. 7 in last week’s rankings to No. 10 this week.
