Loved seeing guys hunting bonus points, and I guess I’m mostly thinking of Warner here since the others either had mismatches or are the usual bonus candidates.

Good win for the boys. How worried should we be about Assad? They burned the ‘shirt because he’s presumably our best chance to place in March but this seems like the kind of fringe-ranked guy he needs to beat.

That really sucks to have his dream taken away like that. “Retire” is not a word you want to hear in reference to a 19-20 year old. Hope they can find a way for him to be involved - student manager, coaching “intern”  - or something if he’s interested.

I was at the game jumping around screaming “all night!” 

After this I nodded and said, “hmm, that was nice.”

Now we gotta turn these guys over, because they don’t look like they’re gonna stop scoring.

I don't think its winning on the West Coast or beating USC that will be notable in the long run (as enjoyable as both would be in the moment), but rather another 10-win season. Get that then the fact that our 3 losses were close games against ranked opponents adds to what will forever be the debate on Ferentz's legacy - should fans be grateful that he accomplished so much or should we be disappointed that he couldn't get us to the elite level that we were tantalizingly close to?

Big Fish is my favorite movie! I've always thought Hayden's life had more of a Forrest Gump quality, with all the famous people he intersected with. Reading this article makes me think of another movie - The Men Who Stare at Goats. The movie is just ok, but the tagline is epic and I think they could reuse it someday for a Hayden biopic - "More of this is true than you'd believe."

What always gets me are the Nebraska fans who are from Iowa. Just . . . why? At least someone west of Des Moines has an excuse for being a Cyclone.

Although given the obnoxiousness of Cyclone fans (I have to spend family holidays hearing about how the ISU is “objectively” better than Iowa even though they lost head to head and have a worse record) there’s not much daylight between them and the Huskers.

Better to spend our time with Wisconsin fans. Worthy f’ing adversary.

Great meet, especially for early in the season. Our studs were studs and Brands will have have plenty to work with at the other weights that didn’t chase points aggressively as he looks to get those guys peaking at the right time.

What was up with Cash though - minor illness, difficult weight cut? He didn’t seem 100% out there. 

Bonus: that Alex & Eli documentary was great. That seems like a really great family dealing with unbelievable tragedy. I hope that encourages some people who need it.

Unpopular opinion here maybe, but I thought Millen was pretty pro-Iowa in the first half. Maybe we’re just used to his usual routine about Stanley’s big hands and how our linemen wrestled in HS. The second half, for sure he was for Nebraska but that could easily be explained by either (1) which team was playing better and/or (2) which team playing well would keep it close and thus more neutral fans keeping the tv on BTN.

I second my colleagues above. Its really great to see the defensive staff scheming to get him in position to make plays, especially with his numbers being down early in the year with offenses keying on him.

Comment 12 Nov 2019

Forgive me if I missed it earlier, but why would Lee not take an Olympic redshirt? It seems like you’d have to be laser focused on that goal given the competition, especially with the reduced number of weight classes.

Do the kids still say “what are those?!” Not a good look and the shade of yellow isn’t helping. Maybe they’ll be better in black.
