    Who has a big day?

    Morgan has been a little quiet this season. I'm seeing six receptions, two of them TDs.

    The Courts under Trump - Mega Thread

    So...you're in favor of eliminating gay marriage and abortion, and supportive of gerrymandering?

    Martinez Sets Husker Freshman Passing Record

    If I had to run a pro-set passing offense, I'd still take Adrian Martinez over Tanner Lee.

    I'm thinking a much-awaited rematch with Bethune-Cookman in the Celebration Bowl.

    A closer look at Chinander's defenses...by the numbers

    Be honest. Did you think the season would get better after that close loss to Colorado? Or worse?

    A closer look at Chinander's defenses...by the numbers

    Come on, man. A season ago at 6 games we were 3-3, with a close loss to Oregon and a 21 point loss to Wisconsin. You said there was never a reason to lose to Purdue. Never. That was a bad season that only got worse. This is a historically bad season that might get better. But suggesting that Scott Frost is a chess-master who is three moves ahead of everyone (except you) wears a little thin.
  7. Weirdly enough, there is increasing bi-partisan support for prison reform. Mostly about getting minor offenders out of the very expensive-to-the-taxpayers legal system. Everybody seems willing to admit the current system isn't working, and apparently Republicans aren't worried about the soft-on-crime implications.

    What if Nebraska has TWO games canceled this year?

    How good is it going to feel to get that win against Bethune- Cookman? Not very good, really.

    Officiating Bias Against Frost?

    The refs watch for the telltale sign of the uniform being pulled. Illegal holding is a skill like anything else. The savvy vets do it up close, in tight and early. The kids hold on too long and the separation makes the hold too blatant to ignore. Of course players who are constantly getting beat tend to hold more often, and that's probably been the case with the Huskers.

    #3 may have been a joke, but it's a fact that red cars get more speeding tickets than other colors. And white cars get the most. So Red + White? I dunno, but it may have more basis than the various conspiracy theories. https://www.motorists.org/blog/get-pulled-over-more-often/

    Defensive Issues - Who's more at fault?

    It's easy to forget the first 3.5 quarters of the game when you lose, but let's not go overboard. I watched a team and presumably a coaching staff that dialed things up on both sides of the ball. The offense was clicking and the playcalling had Northwestern off-balance. The defense tackled far better, got legitimate pressure far more often, and having forced Northwestern to go pure pass happy, they did a decent job of bend-don't-break. Even saddled with a pick-six fumble, the defense had put the team in the position to win. Then in the last few minutes, with victory in sight and the two touchdown lead perhaps too much of a cushion, the young team still learning how to win played too tight against a home team playing with urgency. (I had the pleasure of watching virtually the same game last night when my San Francisco 49ers should have beaten the Packers) It's a mental breakdown. It happens with young teams. The personnel and scheme that put you up 28 -14 is still legit. We just got the yips against a more disciplined team. That doesn't mean you burn down the whole thing. There was a lot that was working Saturday, and we all knew it. Let's not pretend we're a 4-3 switch or new defensive coordinator away from winning that game. Or the next game.

    How hard would it be to put simple sensors in the tips of the game balls, sideline markers, and endzone pylons to deliver unquestionable first down and touchdown decisions immediately? That's not even high tech. That's Radio Shack® tech.

    Officiating Bias Against Frost?

    And there are some teams that commit significantly fewer penalties than other teams, regardless of the officiating crew. Why wouldn't there be? Clearly it's not all about penalties. Nebraska was well positioned to beat a team that only had one penalty. If you want to talk about money and motivation, Fox would desperately prefer the Yankees, the Red Sox, the Dodgers, or the Cubs, and baseball umpires control virtually every pitch, but there's nothing they can do to stop the Astros and Brewers from playing better and winning.

    There is far more evidence to support this conclusion. You do know there are Alabama fans who suspect constant collusion against the Crimson Tide to thwart their domination.

    I do think Scott Frost's hurry-up offense screws up a lot of replay segments.
