Nebraska might not win the West, but with the way they’re playing and how bad the division is…doesn’t it make the importance of getting to a bowl game that much bigger?

-We have spent this whole season discussing how the B1G West is average and Nebraska is better than they have been….and still they sit at 2-3 overall and 0-2 in B1G play

-The remaining schedule is difficult for Nebraska but looks a lot more gettable than it did 2 months ago, including Ohio State. Nebraska might be an underdog more than not, but who can’t they beat?

-Doesn’t this make the importance of getting to a bowl game that much higher?

Did we see a defeated team yesterday at the podium or a pissed off team?

-Last week, we saw a pissed off team that was sick of being ‘close,’ and they lost yet another close game

-Do we see a team that believes they can get over the hump or one that can’t overcome itself?

-Also—Jake had a poll question from yesterday…is it harder to accept a loss on a Hail Mary or on a 66-yard FG?

It doesn’t seem like you can just ‘fix’ the offensive line or special teams / Shut Up Sipple (sponsored by Bagels & Joe)

-We’re to the point where you have to wonder if this was all looking like glaring issues in the fall for practices…or is just a game problem?

-Also, Jake must give the U.S.A. a big shoutout for the ass-kicking of the Europeans in the Ryder Cup

Nebraska’s not a bad football team but can’t win close games…where do we go from here?

-There HAS to be a breakout coming soon, right? They are so close, and they say it, and they prove it on the field, but just make one too many mistakes

-This team could pretty easily be 4-1, but sits at 2-3, in a year where they are desperate to make a bowl game

-What happens when they get the breakthrough? Or is it not possible for this team?

The B1G West is officially very mediocre at best…what a bad weekend

-Wisconsin went from a 3-point lead early 4th quarter to getting blown out, 41-13, by Notre Dame, with 2 late pick 6s from Graham Mertz (4 INTs on the day, total) leading to the blowout score

-Also…what the hell, Minnesota? The Gophers came in as a 31.5 point favorite over visiting Bowling Green…and they lost 14-10. Tanner Morgan was 5/13 for 59 yards and 2 INTs, 0 TDs.

Nebraska snatches defeat from the jaws of victory once again, in a baffling loss to Michigan State on the road

-Nebraska had their fair share of problems with o-line protection and what not during the game, but still had a 20-13 lead with just under 4 minutes to go in the 4th quarter. Then…Daniel Cerni punted to the wrong side of the field, Michigan State ran it back for a TD, and momentum was gone, and was lost in OT

-This team is not bad. That’s what is frustrating. They are showing they are certainly a good enough team to contend in the B1G. But they sit at 0-2 with 2 baffling losses

-You fix one part of special teams, and then one other part of it implodes. Amazing.
