What in the world happened for you guys to give up 63 and 70 in games in the same year?
Not trying to rub it in...saw the score and I couldn't believe it.
I'll let one of the X's and O's guys break it down, but the containment on the outside runs was especially awful. Then the weak interior defensive line play allowed gashing runs up the middle. Our usually good tackling safety took some awful angles. Pretty awful tackling all around.
We didn't execute.
Long story made short
We flat got outcoached ,played etc. It was bad Bo feeling it today.
It's was a combo of a few things.
Bo having a poor answer to the Wisconsin game plan. Wisconsin used a lot of jet sweep and we couldn't set the edge or our life.
We have a marginally talented front line that was banged up and lacking depth due to bad recruiting during Bo's first seasons at Nebraska. Whe you let a team like Wisconsin get going on the ground it's very hard to stop, very similar to what happened I Georgia's defense but to a much greater extent.
Our scheme is complex and presnap motion gives this defense absolute fits because forces our back 7 to match up again.
There's a lot more but those are the sparknotes if you will.
Crazy game last night for you guys. Crazy way for a game to end. Georgia must feel like they should have one. Hopefully Georgia overlooks Nebraska and the huskers can sneak out of Florida with a win. God knows we need to earn some respect on a national stage. This has been embarrassing to get whacked in every big game.

Teein' Off on Links
First season? Try first three
Ya. Meant to make that plural.
Sane reason Texas A&M beat Alabama at home they were a better team that day. In Nebraska's defeat it was 70 points against the defense!
Yes you are rubbing it in; you saw the game make your own assessment. Can't you see we are grieving here?
Neither did I man. I'd kill to have your talent on the front 7. If we did we might just be undefeated.
There's some discrepancy there. One group think it was a failure on behalf of x's and o's - which makes the most sense. How else could a 10-2 lose to an 7-5 team they had defeated two months ago?
I think it was just a pathetic performance, honestly. We missed Baker Steinkuhler in the middle due to injury and Wisconsin just ran all over us. They destroyed us inside and outside the has marks.
You don't run the ball 50 times and pick up 539 yards on the run because of x's and o's IMO. It was just a crap effort. Terrible angles, arm tackles, absolute domination in the trenches on both sides of the ball, and turnovers. Sums it up for me. It just seemed like every play was up the middle untouched or to the outside where there didn't seem to be any defenders.
Some people are trying to say Wisconsin hit us with a curve ball, but that does not explain a 40 point loss to a team you beat earlier in the year. Nebraska played equally awful v. Iowa last week. They were just a terrible team that was entirely hindered by the wind.
Offense was pretty terrible too. I heard rumors Martinez was sick before the game and I think it was true. He had the big run and some other good plays on the ground, but he turned it over 3 times and was off the target in his passes on almost every single play.
Worst game I've ever seen as a Husker. At least we all knew those drubbings under Callahan were because we were a crappy team with a crappy coach.
A boy, a Twitter page, and the aspiration that you follow him. It's what this country was founded upon.
No I don't think you are rubbing it in at all. Honest question
Honestly idk. Wisconsin came out with a great game plan and we did not. We had a horrible start and they took advantage of it. As the game went on we didn't adjust to their game plan. Then like Stoobie said our weakness really showed themselves. We have had trouble stopping the run all year and had trouble tackling.
You can't make those mistakes against a team like Wisconsin or they will burn you. I just hope we don't do that against Georgia or we will really be in trouble.
I didn't see the game...I was celebrating. Saw the score.
By the way, Georgia can be run on as well...maybe you can win a score fest.
That would be great, but if we fail to score on a possession.... Just one..... We lose by 7...
As much as people want to point at coaching (and yes, the coaches need to fix the problems) The safeties and outside linebackers had awful games and did not play their responsibilities all game long. And when they tried they tackled poorly and took bad angles. Awful, awful execution and no passion on defense, they never really believed they could stop Wisconsin after the first quarter and it showed. There is no excuse for a defensive minded coach to give up 63 and 70 points in the same year.
Thanks for dropping by. I am still stunned by how badly we got beat. We were out coached and out played by Wisconsin. I'm very proud of our huskers and even though we got our butts kicked I'm still a die hard husker fan. How could they score so many points against our D?????????????????????
Wisconsin was ready and the huskers were not. Our coaches were not able to make the correct adjustments to what was thrown at them so we lost.
70 points is just part of the process.
Thank you, I needed that.

So if bad things come in 3's. We have had 63 points and now 70. Will Georgia put up more?
