Well, Nebraska wins the “Heroes Game” and finishes the season the with my predicted record of 9-3. It was a solid season, with playmakers making the difference in key games. Let’s keep it with playmakers. First Down: Lavonte David, Team MVP – Outside of Mike Rozier, what other junior college transfer has had an impact like Lavonte […]
Well, Nebraska will be playing two more times in 2011, instead of one more time. What an all-around ugly performance today by the Huskers, with the exception of LB Lavonte David. I can’t believe I thought the Huskers deserved BCS consideration after watching them play today.
A crazy week in college football comes to an end with Nebraska holding on to beat Penn State 17-14 in State College. If you read my blog, you know the scandal affected me. I don’t know about everyone else, but I was just observing everything at the outset of the game. A nice moment by […]
After last week’s domination of Michigan State, you thought the Huskers had righted the ship and were in prime position to win their division. I should have waited another game before thinking Nebraska was on its way. Looking back, there seems to be one game a season, under Pelini, the Huskers lose they shouldn’t. Today […]
The season was on the line, and Nebraska rose up and responded to the challenge. Were they aided by Michigan State’s recent gauntlet of games? Perhaps it was a factor, but there was never any doubt who the better team on the field was today.
Was that a game, or a scrimmage Nebraska just played? At some point in the second quarter, the analysts drifted away from the game.

The Huskers are 5-1, right where most people pegged them to be. Granted, the play behind that 5-1 record does little to inspire confidence for the rest of the season. Let’s look at some statistics, and then go to Four Downs. Preseason AP Ranking: 10 Current AP Ranking: 14 Football Outsiders S&P+ Ranking: 34
A season saving win for the Huskers tonight. I hope it isn’t overshadowed by the postgame press conference Bo Pelini just had. We’ll get to that in a minute, but…wow. And, special thanks to my wife who texted and tweeted updates for me while we were driving home at the start of the fourth quarter. […]
No shame in losing to Wisconsin, but when Nebraska loses like that it’s sad. As Bo Pelini said, “That was a joke.” No reason to belabor anything. Let’s get to it. First Down: Russell Wilson is now a Heisman favorite – For awhile there, I thought the Huskers defense was playing well. They were making […]
4-0. For the inconsistency and uncertainty with the Huskers, the team is undefeated heading into conference play. Lots of players saw playing time as the Huskers cycled many in to keep them fresh in the altitude of Laramie, Wyoming. First Down: Steady Diet of Rex…Again – I don’t know if Rex Burkhead is the best […]
