  • Did this weekend feel the same or different for some?
    • Looked exact same to me
  • Huskers/ UFC Fight
  • Man of the weekend

Huskers open as anywhere from an 8.5 to 9 point underdog at Northwestern…like their chances? / Shut Up Sipple

-Northwestern never scares you, and people laughed at them when they lost to Akron and Duke; but they respond with a (near) win against Michigan, and a 10-point win at Michigan State. Not so funny now, are they?

-Regardless, they always seem like a fair matchup for Nebraska…is this the week of the first win? And don’t forget about them in the B1G West race now…

Tony Davis (Former Husker RB)

-Was the 17-point loss to Wisconsin a moral victory, or do you believe in such a thing?

-How many years will it take to overtake the Badgers, if it happens?

-Do we need to just accept the fact that this team is going to have penalty numbers each game?

Nebraska lost the game by 17 points at Wisconsin, but does it feel like the reaction from fans is positive…and is that justified?

-Frost did say this team isn’t good enough to beat Wisconsin yet, and that’s fine—although they didn’t seem like an unbeatable team on Saturday. And don’t forget the defense unraveled in the 2nd half and gave up 370 yards rushing to the Badgers, including 221 yards and 3 TDs for Jonathan Taylor

-We talked about the idea of a moral victory for Nebraska last week when discussing the game…did you come away feeling like it was a moral victory? The offense was good in the 2nd half but the defense wasn’t. Is that a fair wash? Is there growth to build on? That’s how you justify a moral victory

Things have gotten so dire with special teams that the scholarship punter has been replaced by a walk-on

-Yep. Caleb Lightbourn had 2 poor punts, and was replaced by walk-on Isaac Armstrong for the rest of the game. And you know what? Armstrong was pretty darn good. No job is safe on this team, even as simple as a punter on scholarship.

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

The future appears bright for sure with Adrian Martinez…..and Maurice Washington

-Washington looked great on Saturday, and would have had better stats if not for penalties that wiped them out. His final tally: 5 carries for 27 yards; and 4 catches for 53 yards. And a phenomenal catch that caused a targeting penalty, but was wiped out by a holding call on the offensive line

-For Martinez, 24/42 passing for 384 yards and 2 TDs; and also 13 carries for 57 yards and a TD (long of 28 yards). We also can’t forget that J.D. Spielman is only a sophomore, and had another 200 yard receiving game (9 rec, 209 yds, 1 TD). What other areas would you describe as ‘bright’ right now for sure for the future?
