Nebraska Vs. Texas

Submitted by MichMike86 on December 5th, 2009 at 10:05 PM

Nebraska has shown everyone a lot with how well their defense has played. If only their offense could step it up and get some points on the board that don't involve their kicker. If anyone saw the halftime show it was pretty funny how bad those girls were at throwing the football but that was not what stood out. Dana Jacobson is one fat lady. I thought she was decent prior to seeing her on the field interviewing the winner. Whew

I thought she was kind of hot back in the day but it seemed to all go downhill for her after the vodka laden rant she went on at the ESPN roast of Mike & Mike where she went on to swear abouth Notre Dame and just about everything catholic she could. I thought it was funny but aparently a lot of catholics didn't. I am catholic and thought it was ironic since most catholics look forward to Lent and the weekly fish fries and summer picnics where everyone consumes as much alcohol as possible.

Did anyone else see him hold off the Texas lineman with one arm and sack McCoy with the other arm?


He is more than deserving of every piece of defensive hardware he has been nominated for.

I don't care who you are or how you feel about Nebraska, if you don't like the way this young man plays, you don't like football.

End of story.

Kinda ironic, under Callahan, Nebraska had a really good offense but terrible defense, and now under Pelini, they have the exact opposite. Maybe NE fans will forgive Callahan and bring him back to be the offensive coordinator.

and that might be a good call.

...i heard something on espn radio a moment ago where freddie coleman and mel kiper were saying that voters in the last week are more concerned with the national championship matchup than with the strength of the season. the strange/scary thing, however, was that they both thought this was something that would be in TCU's favor.

I'm not going to lie and say I've watched a lot of TCU games this year, but seriously?

hmm...that makes a texas loss much more interesting. i didn't realize that they had beaten 4 ranked teams. i looked at their schedule and saw that only two teams they had beaten were ranked at the time. i wish i would have watched more of them so i had more to say...

since you've watched them a few times, you might be able to answer another question i had regarding TCU. how serious a candidate do you think gary patterson is for the hc-ing job at notre dame? i heard that they really preferred a defensive minded coach.

...I think we can say that the Blackshirts are definitely back.

Nebraska will terrorize the Big 12 for the next decade if Pelini assembles an offense that is half as solid as his defense.

Until Suh slaps around some 105LB coed like Christian Peter and Lawrence Phillips he has not earned that Blackshirt status!
OK-Yes Suh is a monster but once he is gone will the cornholers continue to be dominant in anything other then the Big 12 North? Texas has beaten a broken Bob Stoops team, an over rated OKLA State team and a rebuilding Red Raider squad. This is not last years Big 12. I would put Texas up against our own children of the corn, Joe Pa and Sweater Vest and tell you they lose at least 1, likely 2 and possibly all three depending on the IA QB. As for Nebraska they are improved but is this defense the Blackshirts we remember of Dr. Tom?

...I would argue there is never going to be another Dr. Tom. Just like there will never be another Bo, Crisler, Yost, Lombardi, Bryant, Hayes, Rockne, Bowden, Paterno, or Stagg. Those guys were literally lightning in a bottle, and I think it's ultimately counterproductive to hope to see another similar coaching talent in your lifetime.

Based on this game, and the other bits and pieces of Nebraska I've seen this season, I believe that this Nebraska defensive unit is worthy of the Blackshirt label.

Obviously it will be a huge challenge for Pelini to replace Suh, but I think this season, and Suh's probable NFL success, will give him some pretty solid momentum on the recruiting trail.

That noise in the background of this game is most of Gainesville cheering for the Huskers to pull this off and give the Fighting Tebows a chance at the NC game.
