    Big plays

    Something I really want to see out of this team is a long TD run, 50+ yards. It has been awhile since we had players to make this happen. But we have them now and it will happen sometime this year. It would be nice say oh maybe this saturday, that would be good.

    Another thing I would want to see is a defensive TD. When Curvey had those 2 it goes a long way in turing around a game and at home really getting the crowd excited. Heck lets have one of these this weekend too.

    Re: Big plays

    I agree about the big plays. I've been saying this for a few years now. We have not had a true threat to take it to the house on any given play since JJ Moses.

    Bass is getting close to breaking some long runs so I hope it happens soon!

    Re: Big plays

    I'd be happy with a turnover from the D, plain and simple. We didn't have on against Iowa as I recall, and I don't remember any last weekend.

    Of course, I'm trying to forget the game last weekend altogether, so I could be wrong.

    I think something that would really help the big play capability, and the running game inself, is a little misdirection. Doesn't it seem that we are just pretty straight forward. Not much counters, reverses, very little play action.

    Have to wonder why that is. Preseason Chiz promised to "open it up". To this point, we've been rather vanilla, IMO. Talent? Concerns about protection?

    Although again, the Blythe TD passes last week were pretty nice.

    We did have one turnover on D - an interception by Ace. You probably don't recall it because Bass fumbled it away on the next play...

    If we can muster at least two big offensive plays that result in TD's (30+ yards), a couple of turnovers on D, and play sound special teams we will have a decent shot at winning the game. Well I forgot that our defense will have to play as well as or better than they did against Iowa too. Pretty much our whole team just needs to play well and create big plays in order for us to win. Even our Toledo performance minus the last five minutes won't be enough to get it done in Lincoln.

    Re: Big plays

    Several of our 5 turnrovers were returned for zero yards returned whereas the opposing four teams rece ived nine of our turnovers and moved the ball back upfield. Time to act like a Steve Paris or brent Curvy. Remember the pass that Nick Leaders almost intercepted agianst Nebraska two years ago.

    think how Nick must feel about it.....


    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.

    Shouldn't of even had to make that play. Sumrall got caught from behind from a linebacker to prevent a touchdown. Also, Cory Ross scored on a ridiculously poor tackling 70 yard screen pass.

    We still should have scored on that drive, any kind of points.
