Is Nebraska ever going to be a national powerhouse again?

 

With the right coach they can, but they have to be able to recruit well nationally since there is not enough in-state talent to get them there. I'm certain Mike Riley is not that coach....curious what they saw in him that made them think he could do any better than Pelini did.

Great game in Eugene. Nebraska's defense redeemed themselves in the 2nd Half, but it wasn't enough. Ducks win 42-35, thanks to a late INT.

Baker Mayfield is absolutely slicing up the Buckeyes in Columbus. What a statement. Wow!!!

Indiana lit up their sedondary too.

They lost a lot in the draft.

Ohio State's real problem looks to be on offense.

Very impressive win for USC. Defense stepped up in a big way. Lot of offensive weapons for Donald. I hope they hold up. My very early playoff prediction: Alabama, Oklahoma, USC, Clemson.

This Washington St - Boise St game has been wild. 3 Defensive TDs, both starting QBs knocked out of the game. Boise St looked like they had it in the bag, and Wazzou scored 21 straight in the 4th Qtr. Tied at 31 with 1:44 left.

EDIT: We got free football in Pullman on the way.

 

EDIT II: Cougars win it in the 3rd OT, 47-44. College football kicks ass.

I couldn't hang. I was highly entertained in the 1st half though, sounds like a classic. #Old

Went to bed at 2 am before OT.

 

Boise pissed that game away.

 

Good for the pickz tho!

Boise State absolutely choked. The pick six toss by Cozart while he was falling down ranks among the worst all time football plays I have ever seen. Take the sack. Big deal. Still ahead by 14. That was a train wreck is all I can say.

 

Oh, and the refs blew the call on the fumble by Mattison at the two. Should have been ruled an incomplete pass. FG for BSU and game over. Not sure how they "reviewed" that and let it stand.
