    The offense is better than the defense, but that's like saying kissing a pig is better than kissing your sister.
    This offense isn't built to win consistently, either.

    My worry with Frost is that the defense will still struggle. That is another discussion for another time though. We were talking about this team and the biggest issues.

    Defense gave up 213 yards. Total.
    Held them to 2.7 yards per rush.
    Defense gave up 1 TD.

    TLee chose to throw 3 ints. 2 of which were taken back for TDs

    Defense did their part.

    I agree overall.
    But that last drive lost the game.
    Offense can't all be blamed on lee either.

    For once. Makes sense Diaco would have a screen name “Yolobomb.” Good job yesterday, giving up 514 to the 109th ranked offense in fbs. 409 on the ground alone. And this season has been a season of breaking the wrong kind of records.

    There is absolutely no defending (haha) this defensive staff.

    Hey I'm a big critic of the Riley hire based on his past performance and his capabilities of being a great winning coach. However I would never question his commitment to it or the effort. I could care less where he lives. We all know the story of him having bought the house and their attempts to make it livable with his wife's respiratory problem. Commitment, professionalism, and Sincerity are certainly aspiring personal traits he brought to the table.

    I suppose it can technically get worse, but it would almost be as if we were trying to get worse.

    Thought about adding Iowa as well, but 66 yards of total offense yesterday? 5 first downs? I know it’s too much to hope that they have a similar game against us, but maybe they trip over their own feet throughout the game and we actually improve some... a BIG maybe...

    Yeah, $800/yr is rough. How do you deal? You’ll actually have an inverse relationship, and give up 800 yds rushing?

    I hydrate off Husker fan tears RollingLaugh

    It's a fine line though, even what I see on the field sickens me. Got to be careful or I'll be in the locker room with Tanner.

    I disagree with anyone contends we have more talent than the teams that keep beating us. The only people who say this or believe it are the Nebraska fans that say it. Look at all conf teams since we’ve joined this conf. We don’t have more talent.

    The OL had to be the biggest fail ever in the NIU game. Goodbye Cavanaugh

    I don't recall Lee being under a lot of pressure on either pick he threw. But yeah, I had great hopes for the OL under Cav, but man, something wasn't right there.

    Yeah, I was pretty much as you. In fact, I had told plano the same at that time.

    The moment I was off the Pelini bandwagon? The 2012 B1G CCG. All the other stuff was just "for cause".

    I think you are right. I just downsized our house for a move and threw away every televised game I recorded since 1984, so I can't review the tape. However, as I recall he held the ball way too long, it would have been an easy completion if he had thrown it one second earlier, and anyway, NU had like a 2nd and 4 and attempted twp passes. It was a fail and I don't think the primary culprit was the OL.
