    The play was there....

    CPR said that going into OT, if we had the chance to win it with a two point try in OT, we were going to try the play we ran because we practiced it during the week and "the play was there". CPR is going to take us to great heights.......

    It was the right thing to do. Yeah, you've got to make that throw if you make the call. You have the ball there and the chance to relegate the #7 team in the country to the slag heap of has-beens for the national title. They deserved it, too. Great play call. Our team could have played without the turnovers, and it's a whole different game. It was what it was, great game. Wally gets a lot of respect from me on the D today.

    Right call, bad throw. Pretty soon we'll be winning those close ones. Rhoads is a great coach, and he has us going the right direction.

    Re: The play was there....

    Loved the call and I can live with it. The throw, I must say though was horrific. It is exactly the type of pass that I could have thrown, which isn't what you want if you're interested in winning.

    Re: The play was there....

    Yep... good play... bad throw.

    Ok, so it's Daniel Kuehl's fault we lost. I get it.

    If you don't understand how stupid that sounds, then you don't understand the game.

    A game of this magnitude should not be put on Daniel Kuehl's ability to throw the football into a 20 mph wind. It just shouldn't. So quit blaming him.

    I sure hope Rhoads is putting this one on himself... and I'm sure he is. He's a stand up guy. Bo Pelini would put the loss on his backup punter... not Paul Rhoads.

    And you guys shouldn't either.

    I don't see it as Kuehl's fault or Rhoads' go watch the play on ESPN, Franklin was open, the ball just got caught by the wind. I think that yes, it was underthrown a bit, but the wind pretty much made it flounder as it did.

    Re: The play was there....

    If I was CPR I wouldn't take the blame for the loss, and he didn't. He said if he has to make that call again, he would do it the same way every time. Franklin was wide open. It's just a fact that Kuehl's pass wasn't good enough. I'm not BLAMING Kuehl for the loss, by any means. There are a lot of plays we can point to from earlier in the game that could have changed a lot of things.

    I liked the call and I loved the fact CPR went for the win at the end. It could have gone either way. It fell for the Huskers this time but Rhoads is putting us in position where eventually it WILL fall for us!

    You are so emotional you are having trouble reading. Very, very few are saying the loss is on Kuehl, but rather the incompletion is on Kuehl. Big difference.

    So, just a question, but is it your goal to spam this out to every thread on the board? Because you are succeeding.

    Agreed.

    I have yet to see anyone call out Kuehl. The kid did the best he could in that situation. S5!7 happens, we move on, the players as a team, and us as a supportive fan base.

    The future is brighter than hell.

    This. Best analysis of the game I've heard all day. Kuehl didn't get us 2 points, but guess what? Nebraska got at least 14 points off drives that started with them getting turnovers. We had drives that got stopped. 2 Interceptions. A (or was it 2?) missed field goal. If the turbulence from the wind bobbles the ball a little in any other direction, completely different result. Bottom line, we showed that ISU can play against teams in the top 10, but they just happened to pull through on luck . CPR didn't play to tie it up, he played to win.

    You said it. The hard part is getting the team in a position to win big games like this. We showed that we can do that today. If we keep putting ourselves in that position, we're going to start seeing some of them go our way.

    Today was brutal, but looking back tomorrow, I think people will see that we're on the verge of something special under CPR.

    and just think this is after less than two years with his leadership, not after 5 or six with Mac...big things are on the way and the immediacy of the way CPR leads is an example of not making excuses, just going for it!

    I think a lot of clone fans can see this, sometimes is gets misunderstood or isn't pointed out enough...deep down we can all see it I think. The future is now.

    Exactly. One play, or one player cannot be blamed for this loss. Or any loss, really.
