Good morning! Tough day yesterday and hoping to hear some good news on the injury front either today or tomorrow.
I may be alone, but I feel so much better already even after a loss than I did after not having a game at all. Glad to have Nebraska football back.
Anyways, here we go.
Amid the heartache (and mistakes), Huskers show clear signs of progress - Steven Sipple: Lincoln Journal-Star
Frost lived a wonderful dream for much of the day, but it turned into something of a nightmare in the form of a 33-28 loss to Colorado and a prized freshman quarterback with an apparent knee injury that put the rookie’s immediate future in doubt.
The Anatomy of a 33-28 Season Opening Loss for Nebraska - Derek Peterson: Hail Varsity
What’s the anatomy of a 33-28 loss? A loss to hated Colorado (2-0) that came unexpectedly in coach Scott Frost’s Nebraska (0-1) debut and a loss everyone could have probably seen coming.
Nebraska put its new-and-improved offense on full display on Saturday.
A Loss Is a Loss, but Nebraska Players See Something Different This Year - Erin Sorensen: Hail Varsity
Jerald Foster didn’t want to compare. The senior offensive lineman has seen his fair share of ups and downs in his time at Nebraska, but he didn’t want to talk about that tonight.
After the Huskers’ 33-28 loss to Colorado, Foster wanted to be positive. From his perspective, there’s something about this team that’s different.
‘No moral victory’ as NU laments self-inflicted errors in season-opening loss to Buffs - Parker Gabriel: Lincoln Journal-Star
Scott Frost knew for months that, if his first Nebraska team found itself trying to win a game in the waning moments, that it would do so with a young, inexperienced quarterback leading the charge.
Nobody would have thought until only recent days, though, that the young player in the center of the storm on Saturday afternoon, who put the final pass of the game high into the air and into the end zone, who nearly led his storied program to a heart-stopping win against an old familiar foe, who instead stood in front of reporters after a heartbreaking loss, would be Andrew Bunch.
Mistakes Doom Nebraska Against Colorado in Scott Frost’s Debut - Jon Johnston: Corn Nation
There were many bright spots but not enough to overcome the mistakes made in Scott Frost’s first game at Nebraska.
Colorado Buffaloes survive in Lincoln, beat Nebraska 33-28 - Jeff Hauser: Ralphie Report
The Colorado Buffaloes have some bad memories from their past trips to Lincoln. That string of blowouts and close losses feels a little more distant after a triumphant win in the return of a rivalry series.
In an ugly, gritty game that looked great at first, and then very quickly didn’t, Colorado rallied for a 33-28 victory over Nebraska. Steven Montez hit a streaking Laviska Shenault down the far sideline for a 40-yard go-ahead touchdown pass with 1:06 left in the game to ruin the season opener for coach Scott Frost on Saturday.
The struggle was real in Lincoln and it was felt by both teams.
“We had over 500 yards, 300 rushing. Everyone was doing what they needed to do,” Tanner Farmer says.— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) September 9, 2018
Just a few little mistakes added up to the loss, he said.
Luke Gifford said the team responded completely different after being down 14-0 than they did last season. #huskers— Megan McGill (@MeganMcGill_owh) September 9, 2018
Frost called news on Adrian Martinez so far, “Semi-encouraging.” But will wait to talk more about it until more information is in to talk specifics. #Huskers— Parker Gabriel (@HuskerExtraPG) September 8, 2018
Frost: “For about three quarters, that’s about as much fun as I’ve had coaching.” #huskers— Sam McKewon (@swmckewonOWH) September 8, 2018
We said it before but it's going to happen, people are going to question whether or not Scott Frost didn't run the ball here or try to run the clock down here, they're going to do what they do. This isn't old fashioned Nebraska, this new Nebraska. Gonna have to accept that.— Mike'l Severe (@MikelSevere) September 9, 2018
The Husker rushing game slowed down in the second half. Finished with 329 for the game. Actually had 243 on the ground at halftime. NU had more rushing yards at halftime yesterday than in any full game ALL of last season. Best rushing day in '17 was 225 against Ark State.— Brian Christopherson (@Husker247BC) September 9, 2018
That #Huskers team showed a ton of fight yesterday, there were a lot of growing pains that could have been worked out with having played a game last week. Now we wait and see how Martinez is doing. That kid is going to be special.— Nick Gregath (@Husker_Nick) September 9, 2018
Amid this heartbreak -- a 33-28 loss -- there was plenty for Nebraska fans to like from this game.— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) September 8, 2018
Remember that everyday that the sun sets
The sun sets on the first game of the Scott Frost era. pic.twitter.com/n4jqQZhBpf— Christopher Heady (@heady_chris) September 9, 2018
The sun will rise the next morning
My view this morning from my deck. Self inflicted miscues, clock management, and learning how to win..These are all things that will get better. Martinez health is important, but this is why you talk family & culture. Early psyche test for NU. pic.twitter.com/njIDYu9hB4— Damon Benning (@damonbenning) September 9, 2018
AND THEN THERE’S THIS...TIME TO TAKE OVER FOLSOM FIELD IN 2019
Sucks to lose. Really sucks. But I see a lot of reasons to be pumped for the future.— CornNation (@CornNation) September 9, 2018
Also...thinking we should start planning to take over Folsom Field in 2019. #Huskers #GBR
