    The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    They kept saying how Clemson was really taking it to Nebraska when I really though Nebraska was holding there own. The score was 0-0 when they were saying that. Then when Nebraska took the lead they were acting like Nebraska was in trouble.
    I guess I was totally confused on what game they were watching.
    Anyone else get the feeling that the announcers had though Clemson was going to win and then had to back track when KNU pulled it out?

    Ouch. What's that say about us? I would have enjoyed going to the Gator Bowl this year.

    I don't know how any team with 210 total yards, most of it in catch up time, can be taking it to anyone... Not to mention the FOUR yards rushing, TOTAL...

    Re: The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    Clemson is one of those "loved" teams in college football. They've been a mediocre team for years yet no one in the announcing world or media seems to have come to grips with that fact. Weren't they National Championship contenders at the beginning of the year? As long as I can remember they always have been contenders at the beginning of the year to end up losing 3 or more games during the season.

    Re: The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    When Nebraska was behind 21-10 .... I told my brother in law that the Huskers would win the game!!!!


    Nebraska's stock and trade since 1962 has been the big comeback in the second half...Always has been & always will be!!!!


    Some year in the distant future I see our beloved clones under PR being able to do the same thing in big games and in bowl games!!!

    We weren't talking about us but outside of the teams going to these bowls, not many people care about the games other than the BCS (and sometimes not even those).

    Re: The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    Most announcers are pretty lame anymore. I recall when we played NU in 2005 at their place, we were ranked (I think #23 or so) and they were not, but the entire broadcast (I believe Tommy Bowden was doing the color) was firmly biased towards Nebraska. Very little was made of the fact that we damn near won in Lincoln for the first time since 1977.

    Somehow I knew at 21-10 they would win too. Even with 21 points Clemson's offense had done absolutely nothing, Nebraska just caughed it up...

    After Clemson failed to deliver a 1st half knockout blow with their speed, it was very likely that Nebraska's power would take control in the 2nd half. The Husker DL was dominant.

    Re: The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    I agree they seemed to be Clemsen Homers. Comments like Nebraksa can't handle Clemsen's speed really wasn't called for. One of the few games I was pulling for the Huskers on and they played a heck of a game. Glad to see the Big 12 win another one.

    2005 game in Lincoln. And Bowden was absolutely horrible. They were actually rooting for the Huskers. If RJ isn't caught from behind, or if Leaders holds on to that pass in OT, ISU wins 10 games that year and DMac is still the coach at ISU. That loss was the equivalent of the MSU loss in basketball. It set the trend for the rest of DMac's tenure at ISU, and his eventual dismissal. If ISU wins, they get some swagger and definitely beat KU and Mizzou.

    Terry Bowden, and yes, he should have just put on a kNU sweatshirt while in the booth.

    I agree 100%, who cares about the Fuskers, their National Championship days are OVER!!!!!! They might win the North every 7 or 8 years if they are Lucky.

    Also, what is this A-Hole doing listening to the Nebraska Announcers?

    Re: The Nebraska game announcers were crazy

    The announcers were awful. You would have never guessed that KNU was ahead while listening to them. It sounded like Clemson's defense were a bunch of Flash Gordons and Nebraska a bunch of grandmas. It was pretty sickening. I thought maybe I was the only one to think this way.
