  1. Is Wisconsin having a Solich moment?

      Supposedly, there was 2 options after losing to Illinois.  Cut his pinky finger off, or fire him.  He kept his finger and the money.

      Wisconsin is bad, but they sure didn't look "fire a guy after five games" bad, especially considering his (previous) record.

       

      I'm certainly not complaining about it. I'm kinda hoping maybe with Mickey getting us a nice win combined with this could be a sign of some kind of sliding doors moment where we ascend and they fall down.

      I'm REALLY tired of losing to that program.

      I think there was more going on than him being fired over one game.  He wasn’t recruiting like in the past and wasn’t really keeping up with the whole NIL issue.  The University was firing people and not replacing them.  When you read what many of the Wiscy fans have written about the firing many say it was about time.  But many also said it was like when we fired Solich but more said it reminded them of when Nebraska fired Bo. I was shocked to say the least.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out.  

  2. Indeed it was - my mistake. I did not watch the game live (I'm in Australia) but a 20 minute condensed version which cut everything out except actual plays, so I did not spot the quarterback change. So I guess I should say.... Chubba, take the safety.
  3. That referee - I don't know his name, but I recognized his face. Every time I see him, there's always an "oh no, that guy". There used to be a guy in the Big 12 who always screwed us too - was from Texas and wore glasses. The two of them are about as bad as each other.
  4. Nebraska looked like a competent football team. Not a great one and maybe not even an average one, but hey, they won a B1G conference game by two touchdowns and it really should have been worse, considering we gave them 7 free ones and we threw a pick at the 1. Thompson played a blinder [EDIT: Saw it was Purdy who fumbled in the end zone, not CT. Gotta take the safety there] I think my favorite part of this game is that we had that moment - that one we always seem to have - where it could have completely gone to hell. During pretty much the entire third quarter when the offense suddenly went dead, it certainly looked like the usual movie. Somebody else said it above but it bears repeating - under the previous administration, this team folds like a cheap lawn chair immediately after the end zone fumble and it's a single score loss. I'm almost glad they made some really stupid mistakes - perhaps they will gain the confidence and experience to play through them, and win games in spite of them. Was it pretty? Not really. Perfect? Not even close. It needs to get better, and it can get better, but we won a B1G conference game by two touchdowns, and I'm gonna enjoy it. I'm so happy for Mickey Joseph. Respect x1000.
  5. I suspect he can play his game a bit more freely since he's not taking snaps behind one of the worst offensive lines in the country. I bet he feels like he doesn't have to completely win games by himself anymore. That's what it felt like at times under Frost. Most of Martinez' best moments in red seemed to be plays that were broken and where he was forced to improvise himself out of trouble; sometimes it worked and sometimes it didn't. And he was in a lot of trouble. Those games where he threw multiple picks probably come out of feeling like he has to play hero ball. Not really sustainable. Honestly it feels like Thompson is in the same predicament.
  6. Do you mean the 61 yard QB run? That was such a back breaker and on 3rd and 7. I was getting Marv Seiler flashbacks.
  7. Mickey: "It's my fault"
    Player A: "No, it's my fault"

    Player B: "No, it's my fault"

    Player C: "No, it's my fault"

    Well, I suppose accountability is a good start.

      And there is plenty of fault to go around so it makes sense.

  8. I just can't get my head around how this program, built on a foundation of a dominant offensive line, has so completely and utterly neglected this most important position for so long now.
  9. Four posts, wow. We might all be finally out of superlatives. I guess I wasn't expecting a win, but I wasn't expecting to look so completely overwhelmed and overmatched. This is going to be painful.
  10. I wonder if Mickey showed the film of OU injuring him in 1990 on an endless loop and said "I WANT REVENGE."
  11. Correct me if I have the numbers wrong; I couldn't find the article, but I think it was 35 years out of 38 that Nebraska had at least one All-American on the offensive or defensive lines. That's incredible. It's also what we are missing, badly. It has to be about the trenches. Priority #1, #2, and #3.
