    Seriously how did we not run wild on Mizzou last season?

    I have been watching the BTN lately and the Mizzou/NU game is on right now and I have watched the Mizzou/Iowa game too. Mizzou's defensive contain has to be the worst I have ever seen. The linebackers are constantly out of place, they were sucked up in the gaps and not playing contain. The safeties did a terrible job with their angles and were also consistently out of place. I guess some of it was that Tiller was starting. But Helu and Coker ran all over Mizzou, Helu even set a single game Nebraska rushing record in that game. Just a rant and hoping Mizzou's defense does not change a thing!

    Bingo! Lack of passing game in that game.

    They could stack the box against A-Rob because our passing game was of little threat.

    Just as much blame can go to the receivers too. (Except Jake Williams)

    That was the only game I made it to last year. I'm going to say it was too cold. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    Yep. They definitely had their missed opportunities.

    I would agree, however Nebraska's passing attack was barely more dangerous than ours.

    I hope that our receivers are twice as good this year. We just made nothing happen from a receiver standpoint. No breakaways, no separation, no broken tackles, no athletic catches except for Franklin. We can only be better.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.
