Re: Nebraska Football 2017

Mike Riley is a good guy and I think he deserves to ride out the rest of the season and leave on his terms. After his interview I have no doubt he will be gone after the season. He showed no fight, no resolve. It was actually pretty depressing to see him talk that way and that was a clear indicator ...

When Nebraska lost to Purdue 2 years ago, I thought there was no way they could take on Michigan State. I thought they had no chance of winning. Boy, was I wrong.

Re: Nebraska Football 2017

My problem with the first pick 6 is Riley said in his post game presser that it was an RPO. That makes very little sense. With such a short field, it's fairly easy to defend both options. I just saw that play for the first time and I have to credit the NIU defensive back. He was lined up on Morgan ...
