The disappointment from the amount of times I have let myself down by not doing what I was supposed to, or ignoring my personal goals should completely overshadow what I feel from Husker Football. Letting a loss sour my mood for more than the one night is not rational. Then again, when have fan(atic)s ever been rational? I do not think our fandom is unique in any way but getting over a loss is hard every week.
If I had to make an analogy, it would be where you lose track of the amount of drinks you have Friday night. Wake up Saturday so hungover that you can hardly function. Swear up and down Sunday to never drink again. A week later the Huskers are losing to Ohio State and you decide drinking the rest of the gin is a good idea. Oh, how the Huskers can pull me back in week after week.
Whether one calls it the flexbone or the double-wing — as Nebraska football coach Scott Frost prefers — look for NU’s triple option formation to remain, to some degree, in the offense. It had success during one drive against Ohio State when Dedrick Mills, who starred in the flexbone at Georgia Tech, had success at fullback.
Fans can hear the Huskers take on Northwestern on Saturday in English or Spanish.
The last two meetings have gone to overtime. There was third-string walk-on quarterback Ron Kellogg’s Hail Mary pass to Jordan Westerkamp to give Nebraska the win in 2013. The teams’ first game as conference mates saw a 3-5 Northwestern team upset ninth-ranked Nebraska in Lincoln.
Scott Frost discussed his sophomore quarterback, who is #1 on his ballot and getting better.
Aurora senior Nate Boerkircher became the fourth walk-on in Nebraska’s 2020 class on Monday night.
Scott Frost says Nebraska’s struggles is a team issue and Adrian Martinez gets too much of the blame.
A lopsided loss to a national power in prime time can sometimes linger for weeks or for an entire season.

Then There’s this
Nebraska health officials on Monday announced the state’s first death due to severe lung disease linked to vaping, bringing the nationwide total of confirmed deaths to 14.
The mystery of the outbreak of vaping-related lung illnesses is still not solved. But investigators in Illinois and Wisconsin have found some clues, they announced Friday in a press briefing.
The recent numbers of vaping-related illness are alarming, at best; at worst, in the eyes of federal officials, the U.S. is embroiled in a deadly, mysterious and “ongoing outbreak” across the country.
Eating a handful of almonds, walnuts, peanuts or any type of nut on a regular basis may help prevent excessive weight gain and even lower the risk of obesity, new research suggests.
