Nebraska Preparing Like Rocky IV

Nebraska is treating this game like "Rocky IV," running backs coach Ryan Held said.  

"Nobody thinks we can win this game," Held said. "National people don't think we can win this game. We have to be able to rally, come together as a group, go on the road, get on that airplane like Rocky Balboa did and frickin' beat Ivan Drago."

also: 

Nebraska quarterback Adrian Martinez went through the entire practice Wednesday in full pads and participated in every drill, quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco said.

Hello all.  I'm in the orthopedic industry and there a lot of former football players in the industry.  Last week at conference, I met a former Auburn OL from the late 90s, early 00s.  Nice guy.  I mentioned that I'm a big Michigan fan, and said he really likes Michigan too.  He played against us in the 2001 Citrus Bowl and was very complimentary of our program, especially our DL.

I found this to be interesting. I have always thought of our defense more in category of defenses that could risk giving up big plays based on our scheme.

1. Michigan… 14.4% 2. Northern Illinois 3. Minnesota 4. Vanderbilt 5. USC 6. Penn State 7. Indiana 8. Central Michigan 9. Ohio State 10. Alabama.

Obviously, this is a relatively small sample size that is influenced by opponents but thought it was interesting. 

 

 

When did UMBIG11 become Shawn L Martin?

When did UMBIG11 become Shawn L Martin?

UMBIG11 used to be calm and insightful, now anything he has posted since the season began has been nothing but negative or expressing pessimism on the outlook of the season.

Can we all just leave the hot takes at the door. Teams evolve throughout the season, see PSU in 2016.

Just relax.
