small crowd here today. A start like this would typically warrant 6-7 pages of blogging. I guess everyone went to Lincoln to see it in-person.

do our LBs ever get across the line of scrimmage?

How many times have we seen that drive so far this season? Can't even force a third down...

Let's put our own drive together and score again.

The Huskers can send their punter out for coffee. They're not going to need him.

Good start but the Huskers have gained plus 600 yards the last two seasons & they are moving the ball at will so far. Needless to say we need to tighten that up big time! 7-7 tie go Illini!!!!

we are SO slow to respond and come up to the ball - Adams watched the entire thing develop and waited for the runner to come to him.

We react slowly. It is like the DB lets the receiver get open before they react to the receiver.

Give up 5 - 7 yards on 1st down everytime makes it hard to stop a drive. This is the defense I'm so accustomed to watching.

this stat, given what Nebraska has been the last three years, plus the start on defense so far, is exactly why I’m off the Lovie train.
I’d understand OSU putting those number up year over year, but the inability to game plan against a fledgeling Nebraska Program is baffling.

Fifth game in the fifth year and the defense still looks terrible. To think that the results will change under this staff is insanity.
