    The Blackshirts are a joke

    They need to stop that tradition over there. They had 2 guys on there defense that would have been on the field during the 1996 season. We start a backup QB and they don't pick him off one time?? They need to burry those black shirts and forget they ever wore them. I realize they held us to 9 points but if we would have had our normal starting offense we would have at least scored another touchdown. Not to mention Texas Tech ran up 35 on them the week before.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Dude...

    We threw a very low number of passes and really only 1 tested the defense. Everything else was very safe.

    Re: The Blackshirts are a joke

    IIRC the Blackshirts referred to the defense, and they were hardly the problem on Saturday. It was the offense, which committed 8 turnovers, that was the problem, and the Nebraska offense has never been referred to as the Blackshirts...

    They had a good defense.

    Seriously, though, we beat Nebraska. Isn't it time to stop obsessing over them and move on?

    NU's recievers are a joke. How many balls did they just drop?

    Re: The Blackshirts are a joke

    Question on their uniforms. What is up with the dirty white stripes on their arm sleeves? Everything else is white-white, and those are kind of yellow tinted. Is there a reason for that?

    They weren't the problem. You hold teams to under 10 points & under 250 yards--you should win the game.

    Re: The Blackshirts are a joke

    They didn't pick off Tiller because Tiller only threw about 12 times (I don't have the exact number but it was low). We had a good plan for Tiller. We didn't put the pressure on him. Run the zone read. Hand off the ball or run it yourself. Or throw the quick pass to Lenz in the slot. The only HUGE pass of the day was the TD. And that is why it worked so well. We didn't show any indication that Tiller could even throw that ball. It totally caught everyone off guard. What a ballsy call by Herman coming of the successful punt fake.

    Nebraska D looked good to me. Their offense is hideous.

    You truly do knownothing.

    Re-check and see how many points Tech put up on their defense.

    Also might want to check how their output vs. Nebraska ranked historically for them. I don't think you're going to like the results.

    They absolutely controlled our offense. I'm not thinking we have any room to trash their defense. Their offense gave us the ball 8 times and we scored 9 points. Their defense is pretty damn good. Even if our starters score another TD, 2 TD's when your offense has turned it over 8 times is excellent defense.

    Is it a wise move to denegrate the team we just beat? How does that make us look?

    Bump. Sorry, anyone know the answer to this? There has to be some reason why.

    Re: The Blackshirts are a joke

    NU's offense turned the ball over eight times, and NU's defense held ISU to nine points. That speaks volumes for NU's defense, I don't care who they were playing.

    Re: The Blackshirts are a joke

    Their D is actually really good. Not only did they hold their opponent to 9 points but they did that while their offense turned the ball over 8 times. That is next to impossible. Their offense has scored 3 touchdowns in 16 quarters against non-SunBelt opponents. I noticed those yellow stripes also, maybe those stripes make it very hard to hang onto a football.

    NU's colors are Scarlet and CREAM.

    Probably a better representation. Why they don't use them for the numbers, instead of the snow white, is more the question.....

    (Those are colors, just my guess as to the reasoning)

    I agree. I think the term 'Blackshirts' has been overblown the past few years and I get tired of hearing about it, but you can't say that their defense was weak. Suh dominated us twice on the blocked PAT and field goal, and Brantner definitely got a leg workout after all the 3 and outs that we had.
