Give a Dawg a Bone
--Charles Jackson made a great hit on the ensuing Brett Maher punt. He's from the Houston area. We are glad NU cut its recruiting in Texas to concentrate on the Rust Belt's Catholic pipeline.
--NU racked up 30 yards in penalties in the first six minutes.
--In short order, the Blackskirts blew a coverage and allowed the Georgia tight end to waltz into the endzone untouched for a 9-0 lead. By this point, NU had blown several opportunities, should have led in the game, but was behind by nine points. Another case of Cocklash.....
--Rex Burkhead followed that up with a a couple big gains....only to be promptly benched.
--Burkhead was back in the game, rolling down the field...when Taylor Martinez remembered he was Taylor Martinez and threw an interception. Death. Taxes. T Vag.
--On yet another drive, Burkhead (the only NU player with big game balls) was running right through the Bulldog defense. Then he got benched, and Tim Beck called three consecutive Martinez passes. Drive over.
--By halftime, somehow, the Cornhuskers we ahead 24-23 and collecting nuggets of Fool's Gold along the way. Martinez was getting away with passes into traffic and back across the field. Disaster was imminent.
--After talking shit to Georgia's DBs, Taylorina got rocked three times. Perhaps if you suck and are stupid, the best course of action is to keep your mouth shut. More concerning was that not one teammate came to his defense after a couple borderline cheap shots from Bulldog defenders. So much for honor, code, loyalty. Nebraska is a national punch line.
So, who wants answers? We want answers. We want the truth. We can't handle the truth.
Happy Fucking New Year.....
