Mike Gundy has thoughts on Twitter and social media and it’s about what you’d expect

-Gundy was asked in postgame about how his players and he handle criticism, and he went on a nice Gundy-like rant about how social media is bad and that it’s ruining our country. Hard to argue with his comments!

-Also….need to give Mike Leach some props! 4 straight wins for his Cougars over Oregon, and they’re in the Top 10. And as we discussed last week, it’s not just big points for Wazzu—it’s defense, too! A complete team.

-Are you optimistic about Nebraska’s chances of keeping it close against Ohio State this weekend?

-Has Nebraska cured their penalty issue (only 11 penalties the past 2 games combined) or is it just weak competition?

Do you feel better or worse about Nebraska’s chances against Ohio State after what you saw on Saturday?

-As we discussed earlier in the show, it feels good to have 2 straight wins after a 10-game losing streak and an 0-6 start to the season, but there are still plenty of warts with this team. The defense is troublesome and it’s hard to envision them improving enough to keep Ohio State in check at all, despite the Buckeyes not playing great football as of late. But….they’re coming off of a bye and are pissed, and know that the College Football Playoff is still in play if they win out

-Nebraska’s going to have to win in a shootout to beat Ohio State, but can they score enough points this weekend to keep up with the inevitable large amount of points the Buckeyes’ offense puts up on the Nebraska defense? Or do you think the defense will figure it out somehow?

Noah Vedral left a lot to be desired in his first appearance of the season on Saturday…was he rusty or is it something more than that?

-Vedral played the entire second half and only led Nebraska to one scoring drive; a 20 yard TD run by himself. But otherwise (and yes, playing with backups at all positions), he was 2-for-9 passing with only 29 yards and a reallllly bad interception, and 2 sacks. Not good.

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY:

B1G Update…how in the HELL has Northwestern won 12 of their last 13 conference games?

-Northwestern, with their 31-17 win over Wisconsin, and losses by Purdue and Iowa, now leads the B1G West all by themselves. The same Northwestern team that nearly lost at Rutgers 2 weeks ago. How do they keep doing it? And what a game they have this week coming up against Notre Dame…watch them knock the Fighting Irish out of the playoff hunt

-Speaking of Purdue and Iowa, what happened? A classic letdown game for the Boilermakers following their blowout win against Ohio State, as they couldn’t stop Michigan State’s BACKUP QB, and the offense was stalled by a solid Spartan defense. And Iowa? They had many chances to beat Penn State but couldn’t end up doing it, and now are dead in the college football playoff conversation. And then—Wisconsin. 3 losses now for the Badgers, and they might not be done losing
