Go ahead and delete this if I'm repeating someone else here, Mods, but can someone explain to me why we didn't use a timeout in the 3rd quarter? You all know as well as I do that Bo Pelini is NOTORIOUS for using timeouts on defense. He's done this since he got here, to the point where you want to tear your hair out sometimes. Here is the scenario: We lose some steam going into halftime, but still lead 21-10 AND we get the ball to start the 2nd half. Taylor misses a clear opportunity to run the ball on 3rd down to get some points on the first drive. Punt. UCLA TD - 8:21 left in the 3rd - (17-21) UCLA TD - 6:02 left in the 3rd - (24-21) ....now? ....no? ...okay... UCLA TD - 3:39 left in the 3rd - (31-21) ....nothing yet? ...okay... UCLA TD - 0:26 left in the 3rd - (38-21) ....welp, too late now... And you all know the rest. Can anyone shed some light on this? I've been racking my brain since the game ended trying to figure out Bo's logic on this one. I included a screenshot in case you guys don't believe me.
I feel kinda iffy about everyone automatically pegging us to go the Rose Bowl. Wisco is not going to lay down, and the first half of the game in Lincoln they were sticking it to us. The key was line play, as our D-line schooled their O-line (whole game) and our O-line wore their D-line & backers out (2nd half only). Has anyone noticed whether their line play has improved over the season? If so, it's not going to be the gimme that everyone thinks it is. And there's always the whole difficulty of beating someone twice in one year (Washington in 2010 comes to mind). If we do beat Wisco, then we have to sit through the whole possibility of a rematch against UCLA in the Rose Bowl...yikes.
