Well, there you go, Nebraska is just ‘OK’

Indiana’s AD was fired up after the game,  and were IU players faking injuries?

In a time of horrifying stats for Nebraska football, this one make take the cake

-Since the start of 2017, Nebraska has just 12 total wins, which is 57th among Power 5 teams—only ahead of UCLA, Illinois, North Carolina, Arkansas, Kansas, Rutgers, and Oregon State. Good grief.

-Oh, by the way: Nebraska OPENS as a 3.5 point favorite at Purdue on Saturday

If Nebraska doesn’t get 2 more wins to get to a bowl game, how much will that hurt the program? / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-Do recruits start to decommit? 3 straight years with no bowl? It’s a horrifying, possible thing…

We are through 20 games of the Scott Frost era now….why is there still a problem with buy-in?

-Why are guys OK with just being OK? That’s certainly a player issue, but that’s also concerning about the coaching staff possibly not getting through to the players. How can that still be a problem?

-More so, why should we believe that problem is going to be resolved soon if it hasn’t through 20 games? We thought it was resolved after the first 6 games of last year when Nebraska started 0-6, but ended 4-2, with 2 close losses at Ohio State and Iowa. But that’s not the case. Is it a coaching issue or player issue? Scott Frost pointed to ‘dumbass stupid mistakes’ in his post-halftime interview…

Through 8 games, who is the Coach of the Year in the Big Ten?

-There are 5 extremely solid candidates for the honor: Ryan Day, James Franklin, PJ Fleck, Tom Allen…and yes, Lovie Smith, who has the Illini likely headed for a bowl game, believe it or not. Who gets the nod?

-Also, SONG OF THE DAY (sponsored by Sartor Hamann Jewelers):

We officially have no idea what Nebraska is good at defensively, if anything at all

-Indiana didn’t exactly ‘kill’ Nebraska on the ground, because they didn’t have to—they abused the Huskers through the air, helped by zero pass rush and coverage breakdowns. Defenses are attacking Nebraska’s linebackers, and it’s hard to blame them

-So Nebraska doesn’t stop the run very well, and doesn’t stop the pass, either. Where can we point to for possible fixes, if anything is possible at all?
