Thank you all for the comments and the info. 
I feel ed-u-ma-cated now!

Well... the good ones anyway.  
We had a few turnovers I'd like to have back.

I remember one of our former D coaches saying we couldn't adjust until halftime.  Hmmm.... well, that was his way, and so be it.  But Day and Co have shown that it CAN be done during the game with proper preparation.  Glad they called the time out and reminded the team that they had practiced it in the spring and "here's what we do".  Worked to perfection.

Husker fans are great.  I should know - my parents are both alumni. And the hospitality and stadium are both wroth the trip to a game.  I was there for the 2011 debacle. 

GO BUCKS!  Beat Nebraska!

Comment 27 Sep 2019

Agreed.  And it's a great lesson for me - for all of us, perhaps - that we don't really know what's going on behind the scenes. Often we don't find out until much later, if at all.  Our first impressions and surface views can be very deceptive.  

Also shows how important ALL the coaches on a staff are and how tough it is to really get all the moving parts working together. We speak of wanting to win a natty every year - and we DO - but the reality is they're tough to win. (Unless you're Nick Saban. Somehow.)

Was hoping Indiana or Cincy would have given us a tougher early battle

Just for the sake of conversation... what if they DID?  What if the DID give us a battle and we just obliterated them?  Food for thought.  Maybe.   (just not corn)

Comment 25 Sep 2019

I'll own that.  I was furious when he beat our ass in 2006.  I didn't know anything about him really, not even that he was from Ohio.  But I did "hate" him for that game.  

As our HC, however, he's one of the all-time greats. Perhaps The Greatest. The GOAT.   The GOAT so far....

Of course an alternate conspiracy-minded idea would be this (see if you can tell I'm a writer):

Urban takes the job for gazillions of dollars.  Hires the dregs of the coaching world for support staff.  Recruits all *1 and lower athletes.  Deliberately loses every game TTUN plays and completes the total destruction of their "football" program from within!  On his way out the door, he donates the gazillions of dollars to Ryan Day's foundation and the Buckeye Cancer Cruise. 

I like it!

All I know is  Bragging Rights are on the line in our family this weekend.  My parents are both Cornhusker alumni.  I am the "blacksheep" of the family, but they raised me in central Ohio, so they gets what they gets.   I feel pretty good about our chances.  With no analytics - just my gut feeling - I think we win by 21.  GO BUCKS!  BEAT NEBRASKA!  (and then everyone else!)
