    Not playing with passion. Safety play and LB play has been sad

    Short answer, yes.

    Longer answer, hell yes. this team has no offensive game changers on offense. they have no top of the line talent on defense.

    the fact that they've coaxed 9 wins out of this team and are an overtime pick from 10 wins with one against Wisconsin is a testament to the team getting better.

    Iowa has gotten four plays all game that worked. Unfortunately, 3 of them were HUGE. It''s not like Iowa is doing whatever they want and we have no answer. They've recognized we have very little talent in the front seven. Our strength is our secondary and Iowa has taken them out of the game.

    People who blame the defensive coordinator for games like this either don't understand football, or are being overly emotional.

    I think many know what this Nebraska team is.
    You're claiming not to be an average football team?

    I apologize that nobody is taking your bait, we're to busy hurling our own insults.

    If Fyfe can't throw then I agree, I thought he hurt the other hand.

    Nebraska is cheap when it comes to paying out $$ to top coaches (except for ST coaches). Take it from me, Mike Riley.

    I'm calling BS. If Darlington played you'd be kicking and screaming that Riley is risking the health (life) of Darlington given his concussion hostory.

    We're a soft team, with a soft philosophy and a soft mentality.
    Doesn't help that our linebackers consistently over-run plays. Bando has done it all year.

    I certainly don't. Blowouts, poor tackling, poor offense, losing to teams we shouldn't lose to, etc.

    I don't know how anyone could say we are progressing.

    If only we had a 4-star QB from California who graduated high school early and could have been groomed earlier this year to play in this situation. Damn you Pelini.

    I don't see any improvement from game 1 this year. We seem to always be playing for next year, there are a lot of freshman playing these days, but most of ours aren't improving.

    You don't have to bench a kid for good. One half during an early game during the season would do the trick. "Do it our way or you don't play" should be what is said. Or is that not very nice of CMR to say?

    Based on the record alone , this staff is no better than the prior one. You are asking people to be satisfied with a participation trophy. Maybe that is part of the problem. Fans who demand better are NOT the problem.

    Coaches get paid to recognize when they are to be limited going into a game. Half the state wants to win this Fing Game!!! The coaches know what's at stake and they chose to put in a limited quarterback?? They even were quoted as to be game planning for multiple quarterbacks. Why lie??
    Use these quarterbacks and interchange them towards a decent game plan.

    I'm not taking anything from the coaches all season. They have done a great job! Go back and stalk my posts if you belivebotherwise!!?But the fact of the matter is this is an important game and one of the last games of the year. Crappy game planning. My opinion..

    Our guys better show some heart and fight in the second half. They need to decide what kind of program they want to be. One that rolls over and dies when they punched in the mouth (e.g., Ohio St.) or one that fights back. They look so uninspired, and that is not what this program needs right now.

    wth? Why was that a PF on 7? HE got knocked in to the player. Good heavens we're bad today but the officials are worse.

    Teams improve as the year goes on, or did you not know that?

    That style is the hottest in football; Carroll and Saban both teach it. So does Florida.

    Make the damn play, it's not the tackling style that's hurting us.

    And we crapped the bed again - special teams is not a surprise - figured we would loose the game there

    Leaving for feet to make a tackle gets you run over

    That isn't rugby style. Study up then come back and admit you didn't know what it is.
