Worst Call Ever In A Husker Game

This is also very true. It's truly amazing we won some of the games we did that year with the offense we trotted out on the field. 

 

Just a testament to how good that Defense truly was.  Suh, Crick, O'hanlon, Amukamara, Asante, Dillard, Gomes, Hagg and more future big names.

Worst call, for me, has to be the Frost's pass that was kicked up in the air and caught by Davison.  

 

I was at that game and still never understood why there was not more outcry.  It was called a deflection but it was a clear kick to me.

 

We not only came back and won that game but also a Natty.

 

I was not been able to complain about bad calls for quite a few years after that.  :-)

 

 

PS.  I realize that the focus of this post are the worst calls that went against us (that's implied) ... but still, always been grateful for this one that went out way.

 

Ban this man!  ;)

Worst call in a Husker game...? Langsdorf calling a pass on every third and short. 

 

I know... Not the type of call you meant, but still accurate.

What's the worst call you've seen go *in* Nebraska's favor?

 

Wasn't there a game against PSU at home where they clearly scored a touchdown but it was ruled either a fumble before the ball crossed the goal line? I seem to remember something like that occurring in the south endzone.

I remember after this game, a bunch of Penn State folks were grumbling about it but said that at least we were finally even. Nope, screw you Penn State. That is not even at all. This call cost PSU a game between two middling teams that were going nowhere. The 82 game resulted in them getting a National Championship when it should have been ours. Not to mention Penn State should burn in hell anyway.

This wasn't a call in a game but the worst call might have been Eichorst's call to Riley. Horrible call. :D 

The hiring of Eichorst was a bad call, as well.

Worst missed call in Husker History has to be the call we didn't make to offer Narcisse a full ride scholarship to play for Nebraska.

Yes, a 1000x yes.  The only time I've been sort of happy Penn State won a game was when they beat Thug U (Miami) to win a NC.  Being at a party full of fair weather Hurricane fans (most never even follow college football) and seeing their faces fall was quite a joy (even though they were my friendly co-workers).  These days I'm not sure which of those two teams I'd root for; probably I'd hope for the ground to open up and swallow them whole. :)

I thought it was the right call.  Had it not hit that damn handrail.

We got boned pretty hard in that game not even counting the time being put back on.  The main one being that Texas never scored a touchdown in that game.

It’s a pretty close one though really.  The call on the field was fumble. If I were a ref I’m not sure I would reverse that call.  Still 7 min left in that game too

Thanks for the memories Mike Riley, you worthless bag of sprinkled dog doodoo.

Those videos were just depressing.  Thanks.  I don't think I will ever reach the acceptance stage of the Riley era.

Think of it the way I do: Without the 3yr Riley era, it's highly unlikely we ever get Scott Frost.  All thr pieces fell perfectly into place, so in the end we suffered for a greater good.

Worst call ever was hiring Mike Riley... until it led to Frosty like he just said.
