Whoever said that Braxton Miller is as fast as Denard is a moron. He just caught by 3 different Huskers.

To be fair, the move he put on the MLB was absolutely sick.

Martinez threw an awesome Roby. Braxton Miller is back in the game, and promptly  makes Nebraska pay for its attempt at short pass innovation. 21-17 Ohio.

Is 1st and 10 just not good enough for Nebraska? Does Martinez prefer the challenge of 1st down and 20?

That being said, what was nearly a perfect pass to Kenny Bell was marred by penalties...but thanks to Christian Bryant, Nebraska has superb field position.

How does every team play their worst game against ND? That has always bugged me. Yea, their defense forces errors. But teams also make more unforced errors against the Irish than at any other time in their season. Miami has dropped 14-21 points that have been right in receivers hands. Then there was the botched roughing the punter call that got the ND offense going in the first place. OU and USC should both be able to pass all over ND, but I feel like they will both pull major derps.

Dear Al Borges...I hope you're watching OSU/Nebraska

We HAVE to steal that QB Counter that OSU is running with Miller. It's just like that delayed HB counter that MSU and ND love to run, but just don't give it to the RB, use him as a lead blockers and led Denard run the whole counter.

GREAT design!

Not only was that almost certainly the right play but I'd be tempted to try a couple of random onside kicks in every game against WV. The value of a possession is very high in those games (they and their opponents are averaging about 4.5 points per drive)--flipping possession just once could be a game changer.
