    AP write up on the game

    Has anyone read this yet? What a load of crap. Nebraska was ready for the fake two point conversion? They were faked out of the pants and if it wasnt for the poor throw we would be celebrating. I have read this too many times and it makes me want to puke. The rest of article was a bunch of excuses why the game was so close. A total load of crap!

    I'm guessing they didn't even see the play then.

    Are there more Cyclone or Husker fans in the US? As much as we all hate it, the media has to know it's audience.

    Re: AP write up on the game

    They had at least two guys who were playing back in case of the fake...the one who intercepted it looked like he had his hands in his pockets during the play. You could almost see him go "oh crap".

    BTW, he actually dropped it, not that it matters.

    If they knew it was coming, and still left Franklin open...fools.

    Re: AP write up on the game

    What are you trying to do? Make me sicker? I wonder where this guy was while the game was going? He obviously wasnt at the game and saw the last play.

    In AP's defense, they just built their story around the quote from the Nebraska player. It was he who said they were ready for it.

    That said, I call BS. I need to see the replay again, but I don't think they were. They reacted well to it, but I don't think they were ready.
