I don’t know where everything I typed went. But here’s the gist. Hopefully the next “best week of practices” finally pays off! And the culture is mending! And the staff/players quit making mistakes! MN played tOSU tough last week. Memorial Stadium is no longer scary and who have thought we would say “10 straight losses”. With our golden hire nonetheless! I could envision a tight win or loss of course. For some reason I think we play a decent game with 6 or less penalties. And the results show it! Building blocks for Bethune....
Stanley Morgan gets loose this week and has a career day! Ziggy gets his yards and the Defense does enough to prove last year was anomaly, Coaches get out of their own way and the team finds a way to win.
Minnie D is tough.. see a lower scoring game, tough on NU rush game.
NU finally breaks through for a win, in a nail biter, Ziggy scores late...
NU traps the little critters.. Red 24- Chipmunks-21
(and who won last week, Trash)
Huskers have been scoring four TD's each week. Last week, we added a field goal. Probably 4 touchdowns again this week.
Huskers 28 . . . if we hit all our PAT's.
1-0 for the stretch. A bowl game is still in reach. Ohio State is idle next week when we run over BC and may not be focused when when meet up. (please pass the koolaid) Yep, we can still make a bowl.
Varmint: noun. A troublesome wild animal. Common examples are mice, rodents and gophers. Varmint mitigation requires the utmost in technique and skill. To quote Carl in the movie Caddyshack, 'To kill, you must know the enemy. And in this case, my enemy is a Varmint. And a Varmint will never quit - ever. They're like the Viet Cong...Varmint Cong. So you have to fall back on superior intelligence and superior firepower. That's all she wrote'
Huskers fall back on AM's superior intelligence and passing firepower to get a W.
Husker Army - 35
Minny Cong - 28
How does one predect what this team will do? By our standard of play, the Gophers are better than us. Decent Rush defense and a 400 pound offensive lineman. Frost says we are getting better each week. But coverage busts and dumb penalties continue to haunt us. Sorry. But I go with the Gophers. 28 24.
The team hasn't shown me a single thing yet, so Minnesota 35 NU 24
I had given you credit in my original type up that disappeared! You only missed by 1pt! Impressive Tommy!
It must be Friday and a pick is required for the big game tomorrow. Also, I am shocked that the Trashman is being so optimistic. I think there is a slim chance we could win this game. If Minny is not at the top of their game and we play out of our @$#%&*, we could pull it off. If we can limit our turnovers, limit our penalties, create and capitalize on opportunities, create a pass rush with purpose, score on offense, call a smart and execute an error free game plan and play decent defense we have less than a 50% chance of surviving and could capture our first win this year. Can it be done? Who knows! So I suppose you want the pick? NU 38 and Minnesota 24.
Frost will be carried off the field by Minnesota players because the Husker players will be in total shock and not realize they just won their first game of the season!
