    How can we beat Nebraska?

    Time to turn the page, Cyclone fans. Enough with the "Waco sucks more than Iowa" and "Chizik sucks" threads. This is an important game if we want to turn this thing around and play for a spot in the postseason. Nebraska is beatable, and we haven't had the pleasure of disposing of them for several years.

    So, how about it? How can we beat the Huskers on Saturday?

    Re: How can we beat Nebraska?

    Have you ever seen The Last Boy Scout, where the guy brings a revolver on the field and shoots a bunch of guys on the way to the endzone?

    That would probably help.

    Re: How can we beat Nebraska?

    Nebraska's talent level is closer to ours than Baylor (as was KU's). We won't have as hard a time matching up with them(speed-wise) as we did last weekend.

    Re: How can we beat Nebraska?

    A hefty bet of CF Credits on the Huskers should probably do the trick. Sorry about the last 4 games where I went for the Clones.... I will just have to suck it up and flush some credits for a W.

    Show up as in show up to play their best? Or just show up on the field and be there? We've seen both and personally, I want the effort Ive seen in the 2nd half of UNLV and most of the KU game on the field, not the showing up that happened against Baylor. That being said, I think this game is entirely winnable if they play for 4 quarters.

    Pressure Ganz. The only time he was really under pressure during the Tech game, he through the INT to seal the loss. The question is, can we get pressure with 4, or do we need to blitz? If we blitz, they'll have to be delayed, and disguised well in my opinion.

    When in the Red Zone, get a Sideline Audible called within 45 seconds......that and don't get an off-sides call.

    thats just it. I really believe a ton of our woes this season have come from penalties and miscommunication.

    And dropped passes and bad coverage in the secondary.

    We did not have any takeaways against Baylor. We need to get some turnovers again, and we absolutely need to continue to work on our red zone offense. It was discouraging to see that problem rear its head again on Saturday.
