Prognosticating: Nebraska

By Jason Priestas on October 5, 2011 at 8:35p

Grumble... It's score-guessin' time again.

The comment with the closest prediction for the final score of Saturday's tilt with the Cornhuskers will win a shirt from 11W Dry Goods.

Like the lovely design featured on the right. Or something else. Your call.

Also, if you won last week's contest, please let us know. I was too depressed to sort through the entries.

The fine print:

  • Must be 18 years-old or older.
  • One entry/comment per person.
  • Duplicate predictions are ineligible — first come, first serve.
  • Deadline for entries is kickoff.

Good luck!

Note: I don't want to call you guys out but...

we will publish your email address for the spambots of the world to have fun with. 

This is not cool at all. Just ban them and be done with them.

I'm pretty sure there's an outside chance that was just a joke - don't you suppose?

Jason Priestas's picture

It's a fair warning to all of the new accounts with "GoBlue" or some derivative in them. That was not meant for regular site users or Buckeye fans.

NC_Buckeye's picture

I'm good with that Jason. I remember when a few of the Penn Staters showed up to gloat in the summer. I'm tired of us being a punching bag for these scumbags.

ShowThemOhiosHere's picture

What the hell do Penn State fans have to gloat about?  "My school doesn't cheat!"...yeah, neither does Indiana. 

As far as an OSU/Nebraska score prediction, I think two things will happen:  1.  Our offense will show some improvement, though more will be desired, and 2.  This game will be closer than some might expect.

Nebraska 23, OSU 17

I understand it wasn't intended for the regulars, but I still don't think its cool.

When giving your email while signing up for an 11W account, this text is put at the bottom:

The e-mail address is not made public and will only be used if you wish to receive a new password or wish to receive certain news or notifications by e-mail.

When a person signs up for an 11W account, troll or not, they are entrusting you guys with information in which you clearly state they can trust you with. Personally, I think you guys (11W) are the "chillest bros" (as Luke, Johnny, or one of them would put it) on the web and this doesn't seem like Eleven Warriors at all.

Just my worthless two cents.

I'll say the home team will win, 20-7.

Wisky held them to 17 points.  Is our D as good as W(maybe, but O will not keep them off field as long as Badgers did) ?

We have to be as good as Chatanooga (7) points, not as good as Fresno State (29)???

1 Defensive score (martinez pick 6 as Bryant finally holds 1) 

Wishful thinking, but I'm a homer:

We seem to be having a little problem with our offense where other teams know what play we are running, are able to jump the snap, and know that we will not make effective adjustments to their stragegies. That adds up to another kick in the balls. Only hope is if somebody else devised the strategy and will be calling the plays this week. Anybody else.

We could change the snap cadence and count but we'd have to replace the RT.

One week i expect this team to put something together, catch a couple breaks (pick 6 etc).  Nothing to this point has told me we will win this game (or even be competative) but no one took this score yet and ya gotta believe

Black shirts at night, crazy crowd for the first ever B1G home game, I just don't forsee the Bucks going in and getting anything going on the offensive end.  If Miami at night on the road was a challenge...yikes, I'm not sure that it won't get worse than my predicition.  I certainly hope I'm dead wrong.

I want a fall Saturday in Ohio Stadium..

baddogmaine's picture

I think NE's defense is better than Akron's or CO's, and I think our offense is worse than it looked in those two games, even with Adams back.

NE 24


And I'm not at all sure that it will be Miller who will get us those points.


More interesting than the score to me is whether Fickell will again fail to properly manage the clock or bring coherance to play calling. This is a lost year in terms of wins, all we are playing for is getting players a bit better prepared for next year (this is extremely important, actually) and Luke submitting his next application for next year's OSU job by demonstrating that he has learned anything in his first five games.


And on that matter I do not at all fault him for bringing Bauserman in in the 4th quar last week. Miller had done nothing - NOTHING - to that point and the game was still in reach. Trying something different, instead of sticking with what wasn't working against that particular defense on that day, shows me that he did learn something from earlier games. Miller should be #1 but late in games that we are losing but could win the HC should do what might get us a win. Unless everyone feels that playing Miller regardless is the only priority.

thorvath22's picture

Goes into the 4th quarter with Ohio State winning 16-13 and Martinez throws the ball to win the game for Ohio State 30-13... Following the game Martinez goes back into his highly successful career modeling for MAD magazine.

3 Yards And A Cloud of Dust's picture

Ohio State wins 9-7.

Defenses control the game, offenses for both teams continue to be ineffective, offensive play calling (by both teams) continue to be...well, just offensive, Basil kicks three FGs - including a 51 yard monster - to keep the Bucks just in front.

Fun side note, game is so borning the ratings on ABC drop like Congress' approval rating....Brent Musburger, due to the lack of interest, gets drunk in the 3Q and begins bitch-slapping Herbie, finally bringing about his long overdue "retirement."  Herbie is "sent down" to ESPNU3 and spends the rest of his broadcast career covering Ivy League field hockey.

No offense, tired defense, in fighting, Lincoln at night.  'Nuff said.  I'm off to french kiss a shot gun.


p.s.  In my casket I want to have on the "Skully" t-shirt in XL that I won from this contest.

p.p.s.  Before I go to the great beyond, you guys really need to put the 11W logo on the back of your shirts.  It would look good between the shoulder blade area.  Just a suggestion.  A little marketing never hurt anyone.   Now, where did I put those shells......

We get five safeties or three field goals and an extra point.

Northbrook's picture

So we are going to miss the touchdown but make the extra point? Make as much sense as anything else going on with our O.

Tim's picture

Exactly.  Bollman will find a way to turn a promising drive into a single point, even though it's not possible.

There is a joke or witty comment that can be made here and I will think of it once I'm done weeping. Anybody else?

  • 42-yd FG.

OSU-13 NEB-9

Martinez throws 5 picks, including the eventual game-winning pick-6 to Roby.

Because we couldn't go for three.

baddogmaine's picture

Yes. We get 5 turnovers and only 13 points. Seven come on a pick-6 and a PAT. The other six come on two interceptions returned to the NE one yard line leading to two FGs. The other two INTs get returned to the NE 20 and we get no points out of them. Afterwards Bollman explains how that was his strategy executed perfectly.

Buckeyejason's picture

Didn't you get the memo? We drop pick-6's.
