Totally standard. They get away with murder.Never been in the Nebraska-gets-picked-on camp, but I am amazed what some offensive linemen in this conference get away with. Was just watching the Indiana-Wisconsin game and the Badgers' right tackle completely whiffed on his block. Defender had a straight shot at the QB, so the OT grabs him by the back of the jersey with both hands. No flag, and UW completes a pass for a first down.
Perhaps by an act of God, QB gets sacked on the next series and fumbles.
“Everybody knows”. You crack me up. Every single big 10 game is physical with trash talk. Are you dumb or blind.I live in Iowa City, teach sports writing at the UI, and have a good rapport with my students. However, they are convinced that "everybody knows" that Nebraska is a dirty team, especially in the secondary. It's just a given. Thus, when their kicker talks trash after the game, the accepted opinion is that Nebraska had it coming because we're so dirty.
