This is the worst Nebraska football season I can remember. That isn’t an excuse for dumping on coaches and players. Stay classy, okay?
I spent Saturday at the Nebraska – Minnesota game so I didn’t get to watch very much Big Ten football. It made me realize how little football you get to watch if you’re at a game. I watched Wisconsin – Iowa while at a restaurant after the game. I can say with little reservation that the weekend went about how I expected with two exceptions; I did not expect Ohio State to obliterate Michigan State at the level at which they did, nor did I expect Nebraska to give up 400 rushing yards to Minnesota.
It has to be frustrating for Buckeye fans to know they have one of the most explosive teams in the nation was at the same time have little chance of making the College Football Playoff. Ohio State had 335 yards rushing, with both Mike Weber and J.K. Dobbins going over 100 yards. Weber had 162 on only nine carries for an 18 yard per carry average. Dobbins had 128, averaging nearly 7 yards a carry. That’s shocking especially against Sparty.
I got plenty of crap from my rotten son Saturday. Deservedly so. It wasn’t just the texts during the game, it was the way he repeatedly pointed out we called timeout at the end of the game so we could lose rushing yardage. They lost rushing yardage because Patrick O’Brien got sacked three times.
