Is Nebraska a paper tiger? Discuss.
Gus Johnson is great. He makes the game so much more exciting. I dont know how anybody could not like his style. Nebraska needs to win this game for some B1G respect.
I'd rather have him for march madness than football.
Look at the stands at UCLA. That program is just a shell of it's former self.
Nebraska fans are there in force, or vast empty spaces!
nebraska fans are there in force but thats no surprise
NW needs to water their field. That field likes a nice combo of brown/light green. I guess they had to sacrafice for the new uni's and watering the field was put on hold.
looks quite bad there.
LSU is having its way with the Huskies. Les's team looks hungry.
Mizzou knock off UGA.
Of the 9 games that have been decided, the B1G is 5-4. Need the huskers to pull this one off.
They are on the road and missing 4 defensive starters. Still wish we had played a home-and-home with them.
If UCLA is stout on D and keeps the margin within single digits, one data point in the Yes column.
Martinez 92 yard TD run. Oh UCLA.
Jordan Zumwalt brought a Kovacs-esque "tackle of death" type stop there....not bad.
By the numbers, up until that Martinez run for a TD, UCLA had actually been besting Nebraska in this game. If Hundley and the UCLA offense could get a rushing game together, this could be a decent offense all-around.
Devin Lucien with a nice grab for UCLA.
is looking good so far for UCLA
Devin Funchess will be Rob Gronkowski, but FAST!!!
edit- sorry, thought i was still in the "freshmen contributions" thread.
References to a Devin is applicable in any thread because, as we all know, everyone's a Devin at heart
Fred? Is that you?
My take, Nebraska doesn't have the talent to be consistently good. They're basically Iowa, but wearing red.
I think they'll be a bit more talented year in and year out than Iowa.
I think Nebraska is more on the Wisco level of talent, where they recruit just below elite status. It will be interesting to see if they continue recruiting the state of Texas or if their move to the BigTen moves their recruiting base toward the generally weaker midwest.
but its never prevented us from getting elite results
Wasn't Osbrone getting elite level talent when you guys were winning national championships?
pretty much top 25, never a top 5
Our best recruiting classes were when the genius Callahan screwed up the program
Their fr RB, Amir Abdullah looks pretty shifty!
Total slopfest...SEC football baby!
Commentators in the UGA-Mizzou game: "Sometimes you get the bull, and sometimes the bull gets you"
Nebraska's defense...is not good.
They are lucky that UCLA's D is not very good either.
Bo Pelini's defense is getting cut apart like a hippie's hair at Borics.
wow....looks like neb also has defensive problems. they are getting dragged up and down the field.
Wait, when did FOX sports start replaying the 2010 UM-Illinois game? And what's up with their colors?
I'm so happy that Maher nailed that FG after the UCLA coach tried to ice him twice.
Jim Mora just took ANOTHER time out.
At Nebraska they like to party a lot, and go to class very little. That's what I learned from that ad
Robert Smith just said Taylor Martinez is faster than Denard.
Robert Smith is dumber than Matt Millen.
I heard that also, I was wondering who was talking out of thier ass.
Nebraska's first play on offense results in a fumble. UCLA ball. Converting a 3rd down will have to wait for a Nebraska offense that is beating itself really - the Bruins defense certainly isn't doing that.
Also, Brett Hundley is having a nice game - by himself, he has managed 250 total yards against the Cornhusker defense.
Joey Harrington in the Fox Studio at the half. This is not good.
Oops, sorry. All that triple option has me living in 1971 again.
commentators praising the "physicality" of the UCLA defense. Those two things do not go together.
The holding penalty aside, which incidentally gets Nebraska its first 3rd down conversion, the fact that corners are getting to Martinez on an otherwise tradionally ho-hum UCLA defense is very impressive.
Tied at 27 7:45 Q3
I cringe every time Martinez makes a throw. It's...just awful. It's like he's left-handed trying to throw with his right.
Good lord, you've at least got to put the ball in play on that throw UCLA
all they can handle.
UL Monroe and Arkansas are now tied.
in Tuscaloosa in 2007.
