    The polls are punishing Nebraska

    For their performance against ISU.

    Well, they escaped by 1 point against a team that's not ranked... seems reasonable.

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    or maybe the fact that they showed they don't have a healthy starting QB that was a big reason for their rating?

    But go ahead and take it as a slight on ISU. That's reasonable too.

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    We won last year in Lincoln without our starting qb AND rb. I don't want to hear any excuses that injuries at the qb spot made it close. We put up 30 on what they thought was a great defense, had a lot more first downs and more total yards.

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    they lost a spot or two in one poll, hardly would say that is getting punished considering they are going with a 3rd string QB right now, they still control their own destiny, win out - they will be in the top 5. I don't feel sorry for them one bit

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    Am I missing something? They're still top 10?

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    No team that has to run the wildcat should be in the top 10.

    Re: The polls are punishing Nebraska

    And they should be, believe it or not not everyone in the country is as impressed with our 5-5 record as some around here. It wouldn't have mattered who the teams were if the #7 team wins by 1 in overtime against a 5-4 team that has been outscored by over 100 points against the other top 10 teams they've played, they would lose some respect too.
