Another sloppy game, although I thought several of those critical penalties were BS, especially Safford's "hit" out of bounds. That changed the whole game, turning a 3rd down stop (FG) into a touchdown. In any case I will take the W. I still want to see them play better on the road.

This week looked a little better. Self-inflicted wounds were minimal and early. I was happy to see Imani Cross in there getting some touches in a non-garbage time situaiton. He is going to be brutal over the next few years...I look forward to seeing DBs get flattened.

No idea how they keep pulling out these wins despite being behind by double digits. It worries me and I hope they can get off to a quicker start. At the end of the day though, a win is a win. Nice effort by the team and I agree, they didn't make as many mistakes. Hopefully they can jump all over Minnesota early next week and give Kellogg and the others some clock. It'd also be nice to see Burkhead get some action before the Iowa game.

I know that Nebraska should have played better against the Hawkeyes but I'll take the win. It's starting to look like this will become the rivalry that everybody expected it to be. It was hard played game for both teams and each wanted to win for different reasons.

I am proud of this Huskers team for fighting back after getting blown out after the Ohio State game. They could have easily given up and this season could have been a total disaster. It really looks like Pelini is improving as a coach and Beck and Papuchis are growing into their roles as the coordinators.

I can't wait for the Big Ten Championship. Go Big Red!

...and Burkhead is back and brutal. They will need him against a Wisconsin team that has played mich better since the early part of the season. I do agree they have made great strides since the Ohio State game, but as much as that may be due to coaching, so is the fact that they constantly kill themselves in the first half of games. There is no room for that in these next 2 games. We need 4 second-half performances.

I am excited for the game tonight. I know that if NU wins, it will be tainted due to the sanctions against OSU and PSU but a championship is a championship. After the close loses in the Big XII the last few years, the Huskers are due.

Having said that, I am a little worried about playing the Badgers a second time. The lose of Baker in the middle hurts and it could result in Ball running the ball at will up the middle. Let's hope that NU can do the same thing with Burkhead and Abdullah. They are a perfect complement to one another.

I think you're right though, Cyborg. NU needs to 4 quarters to win this game. Here's my crazy prediction: the game remains close through three quarters and then the Huskers blow it open in the 4th. NU 34 WI 20.

Nebraska ranked 12th? Is that 12th in the nation or 12th in their conference?
