You're right. Tom, early, threw it all over the place with the 2 you mentioned and his other QBs.Liberty? Last night?
Per the comment about some wanting to run Tom out. I was one at the time. Tom knew he had to change and he did, he found the formula. Too many think he didn't adapt which would be totally false. Nebraska of the 90's was a far cry from the Ferragamo and Humm days.
I think, maybe, the determining factor was NU just could not protect the QB against those OU defenses.
During those games on the radio, I kept hearing the announcer go, "You better hurry Dave.!"
The Selmon brothers, Derland Moore, and the OU crew were not kind to QBs.
Sidenote. My wife really had the hots for Vince.
