Speaking of problems, how much could Nebraska have avoided long-sustained issues if they had just beaten Texas in the 2009 Big 12 title game?

-247 Sports wrote about the 10 most controversial games in college football since 2000, and Nebraska showed up twice—for their loss in 2009 to Texas, and their win in 2015 against Michigan State

-Everyone points to the fact that Nebraska hasn’t won conference title since 1999, and man, it would be great to say it’s been 12 years since their last title instead of the current 22 years it’s been..right?

An outsider’s perspective of Nebraska football says the Huskers need to stop running from their problems

-The Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel wrote a great piece on Nebraska over the weekend, and at one point even said what Jake has pretty much said many times: Nebraska looks like they’ve had a lot of regrettable plastic surgery since the good ol’ days

-Tramel also referenced the embarrassment of trying to back out of the Oklahoma game, and pretty much said that the Huskers can’t get out of their own way because they refuse to address any of their issues at great length
