i know its the players that have to execute but when you run same play ten times in a row a blind man could stop it  as for martinez still a lot of work to do rest of the team just was no emotion like been here done that attitude i am very disappointed we have got to find an identity on offense  like back in the day  we knew we were a running team and we went out there and showed everyone why   we executed at a high level if this offense dont grow a pair and watson does not start trusting his players more  big ten will destroy us

That's the longest sentence I've ever read.  You didn't even put a period at the end of it.  Impressive commitment to snub punctuation.


You're right about being in trouble in the Big 10.  

you are right watson's offense is way to predictable and that is why the Husker's offense has plummeted to one of the worst right now.
Some offenses are predictable and it's like, "You now what we're going to run.  Try to stop us."  Seems like in years past Nebraska was that way.  Michigan was too but they decided to go in another direction.  Hasn't worked out so far but not because of the spread.  They are all offense and no D.  As the saying goes, D wins games.  But you have to score some too, obviously.
It's very simple - balance.  Even the great husker teams in the 70's, 80's and 90's were only really good if they got up early and were able to establish the tempo of the game through pounding on teams when ahead, but if mistakes were made and NU fell behind early even the great Tom Osbourne didn't have the offense to be able to play catch up through throwing the ball.  See losses against Miami, Florida state and other bowl games.  This is where we are again today with an offense built totally around running the ball (i don't believe any of the OL were recruited because of their pass protection skills, because if they were i would laugh) and a lack of talent at WR (seriously Niles Paul, Brandon Kinnie, Will Henry, Curyenski Gilleylen, Tim Marlowe and Joe Broekemeier are the best Nebraska can recruit?)  Other than Mike McNeil (converted TE to WR? - That's how you spread 'em with speed - lol) and Kyler Reed (improving) NU's gas tank is empty at this position.  Ben Cotton (Really??  Really?? Why is this guy even on the team?) Other than getting penalized throughout the season (I'm not talking about the A&M feel-up) he would be non-existant if he wasn't a coaches son.  Stanford and Wisconsin have seemed to figure out you don't have to have the best recruits (we don't either), but can be successful with a balanced offense that isn't afraid to punch you in the mouth and take your shots as well.  Hopefully Coach Pelini learned something about last night and the games against A&M and OU.  If not, then i don't anticipate much success next year and Husker Nation will become unsettled once again and we will be looking to hire someone else to captain the ship.

Shawn - You're right.  There is trouble in paradise.


We'll learn next year what Bo is made of and what the future of Husker football looks like.


If major changes are not made we are in trouble....7-5? 



What's Ron Turner been up to lately?  His record is up and down but better than Watson's.
Did the Huskers  even throw DOWN the field to stretch the Defense at the Holiday Bowl??? That HAS To change.. typical vs a Nebraska offense (stack 8 in the box and make them throw on us)....SAD!!!!
Wow, Big Ten 0-5 and outscored 204-92 on New Year's Day. I feel a little better now...
I bet you do!  We don't!  So glad you're feeling better now.

Yep, our O can cap 7 on Bama and 14 on Mississippi State!  That's parity we can take to the bank.  Let the battle for the Legends trophy begin!


See you all in Indy!!!

your rigt win as a team lose as a team  but why leave martinez in if  he is not performing is this watsons call
Watson made the call, but as head coach, Bo has to step in if Watson isn't making the right call.
