  1. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    He did not actually body slam him. The call seemed reactive because Bell really manhandled the guy.
  2. Game 1—@Nebraska Cornhuskers

    Looks like NU is finalizing a deal to play Northern Alabama on Oct 27. That did not take long to settle after we beat Northewestern.

  4. Game 3—@Northwestern

    Overall, I liked the way they ran out the clock. That last play did not go as anyone expected and it did work out. I was a little surprised with the play call but the explanation made sense. The other option would have been Nelson doing a quick kick, but that seems far too risky.

    Yeah, I saw that, but nothing really grabbed my attention. I can see why we are underdogs, but we can compete.
  6. Game 4—@Iowa State Cyclones

    I agree, not the same matchup as last week, at all. ISU seems far more physical than NU. I think on offense we have opportunities, although the run game is going to be tough. Also, Kato might be forced to make decisions a little quicker. We will really see if the O line is any good this week. They were very good last week, but NU was not very impressive on D up front. The ISU secondary played fairly soft, so there may be opportunities for us in hooks and other mid yardage routes. I also think we can beat them over the top. Their secondary dies nit seem to tackle well. I would like to see us get some guys in space. I think Edward's can break it if we dump him some short to medium yardage passes. On defense, it is largely limiting the damage their big bodies receiver can do. Their o line is not incredibly impressive so if we can put quick pressure on the QB, I think we can force mistakes. He got a way with a couple of dangerous plays against OSU. I am assuming they will ti take advantage of the size mismatch with their big receiver, as much as possible. I expect us to play for field position. The game gets tougher for Kato if he is buried and unless we unveil some of our bigger bodies backs this week, I think getting buried deep will be tough to climb out of. I doubt we will catch ISU flat footed. They are hungry for a win, aware of what we did, and Campbell certainly knows what TB can do.
  7. Game 3—@Northwestern

    That was a painful article. The truth is that despite all of these talent rankings, there are reasons we do not let bots handle recruiting, yet. Putting your eggs in the talent ranking basket is always a gamble. There are injuries, kids do not work out as hoped, chemistry, coaching, and then the intangibles emotional element. My question to NU is, "Where was your player leadership?"

    Nicely done, Roo. Evidently not. Snapping is a big exposure, right now. Going to a snapping coach takes time and money and generally travel.

    She must have appreciated quality play, lol.
  10. Game 3—@Northwestern

    Alvin talked about the pep talks from KB at the half and going into the 4th, so I think you are right about senior leadership. I am headed through Des Moines right around noon on Saturday. I wish I had 4 hours to spare, but I'll be listening live, for sure. I wish the timing lined up for me even to be going through in the second half

    Really happy for Jojo to get a return like that. If the Rams don't keep him, someone will.
  12. Game 3—@Northwestern

    If you have not spent some time perusing the NW message board after our win, please do. It's a dumpster fire. The one thread that is consistent is that they seem to believe their team has more talent than we do. I saw zero evidence of that. Their interceptions came from pressure on the QB and the fumble was a great strip. We had decidedly more speed, as was documented before the game. My question going into the game was how far along our talent was, at this point.
  13. Game 3—@Northwestern

    I am sure every officiating eye was looking for pass interference and holding.
