Had a great time with my daughter watching the Huskers put the hurt on Maryland. A few observations. 1. There were very few Maryland fans at the game. Not surprising given the weather, the weekend before thanksgiving and Maryland’s lousy season. Still... it was shocking how few fans were there. I would estimate there were no more than 5,000-8,000 Maryland fans there. There were probably about 20,000 Husker fans there and we made all the noise. Even when Maryland entered the field there were no cheers. Pathetic. The atmosphere outside the stadium before the game was deader than dead. I was at the Rutgers game a few years back and their atmosphere, though lame, was a veritable rock concert compared to Maryland. 2. Martinez played well, but Frost must coach him up with regard to his red zone passing. Ugly. We were lucky Spielman’s touchdown wasn’t a pic too. 3. The defense seemed really jazzed up. They were jumping around before the game and were really flying to the ball during the game. They put some solid hits on Maryland’s runners causing those fumbles. 4. Johnson looked really good running. Good vision for a freshman. And both backs held onto the ball on a cold and wet day. 5. Our defensive backs should have had two interceptions. They need some work on catching the ball. 6. Maryland has a great band. The stadium is small but nice. 7. Luke is a better QB than Martinez. If there is a true QB competition next year he could beat out Martinez.
