  1. I know especially now, after such a hard lost nobody really cares but I just wanted to share this. Before today the last time Nebraska lost it's opening game was on a hot day in 1985 to Florida State, the first game played after the birth of my younger brother. Four years earlier Nebraska loses it's first game of the year and of my life by fumbling away it's opening season game against Iowa. I had a life long hatred of Iowa that I never could quite explain until I found this out in my early teens. Four years before that, Nebraska loses it's opening game against Alabama, the first game played after my wife was born. Today's game was the first game played after the birth of my first child..... Also, first game played after my dad was born? Well he was born in the 50's ........so yeah, the curse goes back to there too. I'm curious about the birth year of my grandfather, but I'm pretty sure he was born in Michigan and never cared about football (or sports in general). Thanks for letting me share.

  6. 3 Reasons why I think Husker Nation should be rooting for Georgia to win the National Championship: 1.They will deny Alabama a chance to win back-to-back championships, a feat that only Nebraska has accomplished in college football history. 2. Georgia is a respectable team led by a respectable head coach (Mark Richt), who happens to hail from Omaha and grew up a husker fan. 3. And maybe most importantly, as much as SEC dominance is annoying, the whole country loses when Notre Dame wins a national title.
  7. Great game from Alabama tonight. All year LSU had the flash, the razzle dazzle, individual talent like no other team, the funny Mad Hatter coach, and media asking if LSU could be one of the best teams ever... well they just got mauled by a unit that was far superior. Even when I look at the first game, Alabama could have easily won but were let down on special teams. Tonight LSU was freakin' shutout! The gameplan by LSU was terrible...trying to run option and screens to the edge against Alabama's speed was suicidal. They took no shots deep. Alabama's offensive gameplan was brilliant. Even in the first game you saw LSU had a defense that could stop Richardson. So they come out and play action and give their QB makeable plays rolling out and hitting the TE and talented WR's. Then punch Richardson and Lacy as well. LSU's defense was formidable but was giving up yards not knowing what Bama would do next. A great OL helped McCarron as well. Saban was far superior and really made Miles look awful tonight. LSU had no answers on offense. Yes, Alabama has some great players and great recruiting classes. But remember they went through the Mike Shula years but have now built a prototype of how to win big. I would take this same approach at Nebraska. Starts with defense...you got a great Blackshirts defense and you can beat anyone, anytime. The Bama mush rush gets TFL and creates QB panic...Jordan Jefferson was completely lost out there. We need to get players and create a defense that attracts recruits. We did this early with Pelini but not lately. Very good, smart QB who is a game manager. Bama has done this with McElroy and now McCarron. No reason we cannot do this. We are coaching TMart more into this role. Ground game...obviously Bama has had some great RB's lately but we have also been historically good at this position. OL - has been a mess for us lately. Have to fix or doesn't matter who QB is back there. After our DL, probably the worst unit right now. We are bad on both lines and we won't beat top tier teams until both lines are corrected. WR's - we have been improving. Good to see. Special teams - an area we are probably better than Bama at. We can't go south in this area but always keep it high focus. Coaching - obviously Bama has some talented coaches. The main thing I see is discipline vs. our sloppy efforts. Bama had one penalty I think tonight? Wow...that is a huge difference from what we have going on. Our program should emphasize defense, linemen, RB's, and discipline and build it from there. We have a ways to go but there is hope for us.
