Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our Buckeye dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility:
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger;
Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood,
Disguise fair nature with hard-favour'd rage;
Then lend the eye a terrible aspect;
Let pry through the portage of the head
Like the brass cannon; let the brow o'erwhelm it
As fearfully as doth a galled rock
O'erhang and jutty his confounded base,
Swill'd with the wild and wasteful ocean.
Now set the teeth and stretch the nostril wide,
Hold hard the breath and bend up every spirit
To his full height. On, on, you noblest Buckeye.
Whose blood is fet from fathers of war-proof!
Fathers that, like so many Alexanders,
Have in these parts from morn till even fought
And sheathed their swords for lack of argument:
Dishonour not your mothers; now attest
That those whom you call'd fathers did beget you.
Be copy now to men of grosser blood,
And teach them how to war. And you, good yeoman,
Whose limbs were made in Ohio, show us here
The mettle of your pasture; let us swear
That you are worth your breeding; which I doubt not;
For there is none of you so mean and base,
That hath not noble lustre in your eyes.
I see you stand like greyhounds in the slips,
Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Woody, Urban, and Saint George!'

My wife went to UNL so I've watched Tommy Armstrong every week for the better part of 3 years. He is a solid mobile quarterback. When he has time to set his feet and gets good protection he is very accurate, however when he's pressured he makes really, really, really poor decisions with the football. He's also good for 1 or 2 random WTF throws per game as well. HOWEVER their primary receiver Jordan Westerkamp is the real deal and has a knack for getting open. A very talented receiver.

The key is to get pressure on Armstrong. Even if you make him move slightly for some reason he'll throw of his back foot and try to force a ball somewhere it shouldn't be - like triple coverage. Hooker, Lattimore et.al. will have a field day if they stay patient, respect Westerkamp and play sound coverage.

Newby is a shifty back and deceptively quick so containing the edges is key. They're not like Wisconsin up front, however so gap sound, freeing up the LB's should do the trick.

yeah they lost me at action bronson watches ancient aliens. Will give vice news on HBO a try, however. Their Docuseries are good.
