That my friends, was a game for the Ages.

It was ugly beyond compare for 3 quarters of Football. Penalties, Turnovers, Slipping and Sliding all over the field. Bad Passes, Poor blocking, SPECIAL TEAMS PLAY, were highlights of a Soggy night in Columbia.

Then... The rain lessened in intensity and the Mighty Husker Defense (soon to carry the beloved Blackshirts) showed the country that THEY ARE as good as advertised. The miscues against VT were a fluke, and that Defense can win championships! I might be putting the cart before the Horse, but last night the Defense WAS Outstanding!

I have to admit that my faith wavered about halfway through the 3rd quarter. Starting the 4th, I was ready to turn off the DVR. Then Lee lofts one up.... WAY down field and finds Niles Paul with a 5 step lead on the defender! TD! FaceBook Goes Crazy. My Crackberry is going nuts with hits from friends, my wife has to leave the room because (being a Sooner fan) she doesn't like the way the momentum is shifting. I'm feeling the Turnaround. C'mon D!

Gabbert decides to see if Suh really can catch the ball... He can! Turns into another TD and within 0:58 we have the lead for good. Then for good measure, Gabbert decides to throw to another Husker, Dejon Gomes, whom I'd never heard of, but he has some great hands and speed to go with it!

A friend said last night "Suh for Heisman!". I don't see that happening, but it would be freaking awesome! I'm thinking Outland + many, many other awards for this man mountain!

This was about as ugly a game as you could watch for 3 quarters, but the heart and determination on the field by our guys was inspirational. I honestly think that the drive and desire to win that this TEAM has going for it will lead to great things.

Today is a Great Day to be a HUSKER!!!

Shayne, word out of Lincoln is that Gomes is fast becoming known as a playmaker in practice. It looks like Thursday night he brought the form to the game. The great thing is he's only a freshman.

As for Suh, keep on bringing it week in and week out.

Go Big Red.

Yes Shayne! This game was truly magnificent! The first three quarters were so frustrating - this comeback was the best one since way back in the 60s, right? Oh, and exactly how BIG are Suh's arms?! His arms look like they are the same size as my waist! He is Huge!! No wonder people have trouble blocking him:)
