They have usually beaten one of their BCS conference opponents every season, although it's usually been an unranked team or from one of the weaker conferences.

They have played way over their heads before and taken teams to overtime [Wisconsin and Texas A&M over the last few years], so it's not impossible that they could do it here I guess.

Default Big Red Anthem

For anybody that hasn't seen it, some students at UNL made a song and video aimed at establishing a gameday tradition. The song and video are quite good. The link is below for those interested:

I am a big fan of the "Take Back Gameday" initiative happening right now.

Memorial Stadium is absolutely one of the best stadiums in college football, but it isn't in the top tier for crowd noise. The students need to be the force to change that. Their energy will spread to others.

This is the worst that the defense has looked since Oklahoma St. last season.

I vastly over thought the outcome, they looked average.

Hopefully it was just a bad night for the "D". Say what you will about Martinez and his mistakes but he bailed out last night. I guess we'll see what the Washington game brings.

Dennard needs to get back quickly. Ciante Evans got exposed last night.

Fresno did have a great game plan though Carr never stayed in the pocket for more than 2 seconds. It was either a quick pass or a rollout reducing the D lines effectiveness.

There is also not enough speed at LB. Other than David the Husker LBs are slow slow slow. I think Santos should get a shot at PT.

The o-line is probably the weak point of the team again, it seems like it has been for the better part of a decade now, ugh.

This is not the defense that I am used to seeing as a Husker fan...

Blackshirts have been terrible this season. Third Downs in particular were bad...they kept giving up 3rd & long conversions after decent stops on first and second downs. The Pelinis need to motivate them, because this will not stand up to Big 10 play.

On a positive note, the offense looked good in the second half. There are a lot of young skill players that I think can be effective immediately, and even better in the long run. Green, Enumwa, Abdullah specifically. I also really like Brett Maher the kicker. I would say he's been as good as Alex Henery, but one of his field goals wasn't perfectly centered through the uprights today.

I hope Abdullah's injury isn't too serious, I think he is already one of the best returners in the country.

I think Dennard is such a huge piece to this defense and it shows. All of the other CBs are #2 guys so right now they are all out of position.

I did love the move to start Ciante Evans at the nickel today.

When 15 gets back I bet we will see him on his island shutting his man down, Green and Mitchell rotating on the other side with Evans taking command of the nickel.
