LOL. Now Jamal Turner is getting into the game, huh? f#*k your doghouse, Pelini.

Yeah, that's ridiculous, and I'm tired of his elementary games sometimes. He talks about discipline and doing the right things, but yet I've seen nothing, but an undisciplined football game today. I think Turner and Osborne get the message m-fer!

If I were Jamal Turner, I'd be thinking about transferring.

The entire game has been a comedy of errors. This episode of the three stooges ( NU special teams, defense , and offense) has been especially bad. Worse than Wisconson. Total self destruction.

I done with Taylor as the QB. I hope like the hell the coaches work with Brion in the off season.

 

It's his fault the O-Line got stomped and the WRs didn't make catches?

No but it's his fault for many of the piss-poor decisions he's made; bad pitches; fumbles; inconsistencies.

You guys can say all you want about the coaches... but this one is on the players. The players are in position, they just cant tackle. There is only so much you can teach to help tackling.... the rest is on the players. But when you have this many turnovers on special teams and offense there isnt much you can do. You can say that Bo didnt get them focused or whatever you guys want but i wont buy it simply because, and anyone who has ever played a sport will agree with me, 90% of being focused is on the players.

 

We fired Coz because his D sucked, same with Cally, Wats, Bohl etc...... It was them last year and before. Now it is the kids fault. 4 yrs of the same crap tells me it is the staff.

Are we going to see Brion??

LOL. The fact that we always have to ask this question in situations like this really gives the answer. We might, but he'll probably get maybe 3 or 4 reps.

Pelini's press conference should be interesting, as should the coming week.

 

Here let me sum it up for you.

 

Bo: "We didn't execute. Michigan is a good football team. They're well-coached. They did some good things and they executed well."

 

And to be clear, there is nothing wrong with that. Some people don't like coach speak, but that is exactly what a coach should do, say what needs to be said. With Bo, what we have to worry about is him flying off the handle at someone. Although probably not after a loss.

 

This is a vanilla answer and doesn't address anything. The coaches need to accept some blame here. It should read more like:

 

Bo: We didn't get our kids ready to play this weekend. It's on us. We need to figure out what we are doing wrong and get this addressed.

 

I promise you Bo will take responsibility and say also that the staff was outcoached, as he has done every single time we lost this year.

 

Shouldn't this raise a red flag then, that this is something that gets repeated.

I find it interesting that some calls are now going against MIch.

 

Gotta even it out at the end.

They're not prepared a few times a year. It's not the same as being terrible the entire year. THAT is the difference between Cos and Bo.

Still TM in there. Anyone else notice how their lineman are still blocking downfield in the second level, they're on our LB and secondary. Our line can't even hold a block on their intiall man. Some coaching changes need to be made.

 

Gonna be real good if TM gets hurt here in garbage time. C'mon Bo, pull your head out.

If that happens those who want to see Carnes will see him

 

Not necessarily, remember last year and TM on one leg.

You'd think. But some people are ok with it as long as he owns up to his mistakes. I'm not. QUIT MAKING THEM.

And it's on the coaches to recruit and play players that can make plays. Our's do neither.

Hilarious that Carnes isn't getting some reps.

 

Instead, Martinez pumps, pumps, pumps and gets tackled.

It's not that simple. You can't just fire a coach with several years' in a row of winning records. You'll never get another coach that way.

 

Frank Solich come to mind?

Just saying that with Coz, folks blamed the poor D on him. The players got a pass. This year, the staff stinks at "it is the kids not tackling, dropping passes etc"....

Starting offense still on the field. This is hilarious. You're going to get somebody hurt, Pelini. I don't know if it's your shameful pride or your lack of judgement, but we need our number 2 guys in now.

Taylor better LIVE in the film room between next Saturday and the bowl game, and then every day during the off-season. Despite his ugly motion, he doesn't have a terrible arm. His whole problem is mentally he has no idea what is going on, and he is unable to make a decision. Time for a lot of guys on both sides of the ball to grow up, Crick, Lavonte, Dennard won't be around next year for the defense and Taylor needs to progress to a real Div I QB, not just a track star. As an aside though, what a player #4 is. I look forward to watching him for years in the League, whether be as an outside backer or a safety.

 

Ad they score again, I kind of hope they get 50 on us. I'm sick of seeing this sh#t, maybe getting lit up 52-17 would jostle some things.

 

He's played great for the past month and a half. The offensive line didn't give him time...the WRs didn't help him out.

 

By "played great" you mean he made the throws he should have made. I agree he has looked better the last few weeks, but that's not going to be good enough. Yes, the line has had problems, but some of that comes from him not being able to make the right reads at the line, getting them out of bad calls and into good ones. More than that, I want to see him look more confident with his decisions, both in the passing game and in the option. He's had enough starts that he should not look confused nearly as often as he does.

I will agree with you that the line needs to improve, and the WR's REALLY need to have a come to Jesus moment. If you can correct the drops and penalties, this team is a juggernaut in waiting (one of my friends, a non-Nebraska fan, commented a couple weeks ago that this is a top 5, BCS title type talent team if they can find a brain, and I can't disagree with him). However, if they don't grow up and fix their execution problems, you'll be looking at 8-4, 9-3 again next year. That's not bad, in the scheme of things, but it's not Nebraska football.

I am starting to dislike when commentators says "They're playing a good game against a good defense." and sound surprised. Listen this defense doesn't have the discipline, intensity or the athleticism (overall) to be considered a good defense.

It's almost like Bo wants him to get hurt...that way when he puts Brion in it won't be because the fans and sportswriters were calling for it, it will be because he has to.

Nice effort by Taylor and all on that run, but him taking those type of hits in this game right now is COMPLETELY unnecessary. And I'm blaming the coaches for that, completely.

28 point game, and our offensive line cannot block - lets keep our starting QB and RB in just incase of a miracle comeback. Great thinking by Bo.

It's truly puzzling.
