    Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    Barney is in the doghouse again. Bo is going ballistic. Fans are upset. Big Ten is not fixing the hoopla ego problems in Lincoln. Too many lines with funny insights.

    NU run game sputters; defense can't solve backup QB - Omaha.com

    NU's newly anointed Blackshirts were red-faced after giving up 468 yards 308 in the second half to the Wildcats' three-headed quarterback. NU I-back Rex Burkhead was glum over two first-half turnovers. And the offensive line its coaches, starters and backups bolted past reporters without comment after it couldn't punch through Northwestern's 95th-ranked run defense.
    Just handed out 19 blackshirts last week, might have to take them back.

    "It's a problem we've had the entire year, man," wide receiver Kenny Bell said of the miscues.
    Three years....

    The Wildcats' undersized defensive line repeatedly knifed into the backfield on zone read, option and trap plays. Nebraska's bread-and-butter power toss was stuffed cold.
    Again?


    In the second half, offensive coordinator Tim Beck benched left tackle Yoshi Hardrick and left guard Andrew Rodriguez. He declined to elaborate. Offensive line coaches Barney Cotton and John Garrison walked briskly through the postgame media area to an exit sign. Center Mike Caputo got a cup of sports drink and headed for the same sign.
    Sounds familiar.

    "We were supposed to have two guys on (Ebert)," safety Austin Cassidy said. "But there was a little bit of confusion."
    One would have been nice.

    "Our guys got tired," Pelini said. "We were obviously undermanned. We're thin up front ... I dunno, it just leaked. We didn't tackle sharp there near the end. They were just getting a push. We'd have them stopped for no gain and it'd leak for three and four yards."
    This is not intramurals. This is BIG TEN FOOTBALL.

    Funny video also.....two losses in conference...Penn State up next....

    Funny thing is that this B1G is probably the weakest year of football they have had in years. PSU is in the first place and could not stay within 30 points of the leaders of the SEC, BIG12 and PAC12

    Re: Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    Pelini is trying to bring back the old Nu coaches when he was there. Cotton is a poor coach. Pelini can no longer use partial qualifiers like osburne did. Looks like recruiting may not be his forte also, who would want to play for an *** like that? The big ten style of football is not sexy to a southern or western kid, cold also.

    Re: Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    I think Pellini is going to literally kill a referee with his bare hands before he retires... on the flip side, the pressure of the most important job in the state of nebraska, trying to appease the "greatest fans in america" is probably wearing on his fiery italian personality... not a good combo. He did step in as an interim coach after the team went 9 and 3 back in 2003.... so he knows what he's dealing with.


    I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't 16 less than 30?

    Hey, no facts. That is not a fair argument to counteract the Big Ten argument. This after most don't seem to think OkSt could put up a fight against LSU or Bama.

    Re: Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    I fear the day Bo Pelini isn't the coach of nebraska. He is as classless as most of their fans are condescending and arrogant. He is a perfect fit for that state.

    Mr bcclone from Icity, you do make a very good instructive point ie...


    There is NO southern or western kid who wants to play big 10 football these days because its too far geographically and its also just too darned COLD in November.


    This historic move to the B1G mite just turn out to be the "Bust of the Century", if dee big red can't make it to Indiananpolis and the champship game this year.


    If I were a big red fan and admittedly I AM NOT ... If I didn't get a trip to indiana at the end of this season ...

    I would expect some heads to roll in good old huskerland...

    So, the moral of the story is that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. Hmm. Who would have known?

    Re: Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    After watching CU Later and Nebby this year, things have not progressed as well as expected.

    Both KFC and Pelini will really need that win when they meet in Lincoln this year. The match of the high paid coaches. Each win is worth half a mil to the coach.

    Thinking Missouri will find this out as well...


    I went to college thinking I wanted a career; turns out I just wanted paychecks.

    A clear conscience is usually the sign of a bad memory.

    Re: Boom Goes the Dynamite in Lincoln

    CyBobby- Agree that NU's southern and western recruiting will dry up, especially in Texas where they have been heavily dependent on talent. NU's talent will continue to get watered down until they are barely an average big 10 team lucky to win minor bowl games. Big Red has been dead for a decade now and it will only get worse.
