Looking forward to the game, a huge proposition for the Huskers but I'm hoping our D can keep us in it.

Go Big Red.

I think Nebraska D will keep the game close in the first three quarters, but their offense can't keep up with Texas.

I also think McCoy is a man on a mission after seeing him carry the team past A&M.

UT 35-21

I think your both a bit off. I'd be shocked if the Huskers score 21 points but equally shocked if we concede 62.

The realist in me says something like 28-10 Texas, the hopeless dreamer in me says 16-14 Big Red.

You know what, my high school coach ran his whole offense as the Huskers did and I was QB 1998-2001. I actually took the Pirates to the playoffs in '99 and lost to Crockett 42-0 sadly but true, the Pirates haven't been to the playoffs since 1972...:ahhaha:

Long story short, Huskers Offense sux and the Longhorns will prevail...:doot:

I dunno, but if I was coaching the 'Huskers I'd go with the ole single-wing.
Afterall everyone knows they can't throw the ball and have to run it. They're like an opponent with only one-arm.
In the meantime Natti, TCU, and Boise State all look like better comp for 'Bama. How big of a margin does UT have to win by to get voted into the big game ?

1 point. I think its pretty much a win and you are in for Texas. I mean they are #3 right now. #2 beat #1. Look at the BCS numbers. They would have to lose a lot of human support because the computers will move them up to 3.

it's close, but statistically speaking, both TCU and Alabama are ranked with better total defenses than Texas. really a tough stat to use for comparison with different conferences being compared.

The Texans don't have the ammo to move up to #1.

Suh is an amazing college player, but he still needs to develop a lot before he can dominate at the NFL level. Mentally he's no further along than Okoye, and physical talent can only get you so far.

Yeah. Though I'm sure he'll be ok with that, because they squeaked into the title game.

Suh made a statement for sure as well as Ingram today. Though I admit I'd be upset if Ingram won because they wouldn't give it to Peterson as a sophomore even though he was clearly the best player in the land.

That was some godawful clock management there for the last minute 30.

Colt runs around and sacks himself, takes almost ALL the time off the clock - never uses any timeouts though they had one - ALMOST RUNS THE GAME OUT OF TIME :francis:

great game by the Horns D and great clutch kick for Hunter Lawrence. Can we just go ahead and draft that guy for the Texans?

As for the TCU deserves to be in the NC game stuff...it may not sound as bad as it did this morning, but Texas went out and won every game they played after starting the season ranked #2. Sorry TCU but Texas earned this invitation...no doubt about it.

fwiw - Colt almost became one of the biggest choke job artists in history with that last play from scrimmage. I don't know what the hell he was doing and were lucky they didn't hose us.

oh and Herbstreet and Musburger can both go screw themselves. They were blatantly homering for Nebraska probably because Texas punked both their favorite schools when it counted (OSU in 06 and Michigan in 05) Herbstreet really sucks.

Respect to Pellini and Nebraska. I knew it was going to be tough but didn't know it was going to be that tough. Helluva gameplan and that Defensive Tackle they have in Suh is something special. Too bad we have won too many meaningless games or the Texans could have him on their DL next year.

TCU...I can hear that argument, because they're one of the most well rounded teams in the country.

Oh well, Texas won so people are going to have to get over it (isn't that what Texas fans were all told after the 45-35 tie breaker screw job last season?)

Yeah, but they had a non-Heisman contender QB that didn't SUCK all night. C'mon, be honest here. If the Nebraska defender had actually not taken that last step toward Colt (forcing the throw), the clock WOULD have run out due to him not being game aware enough to throw the ball early, rather than slow rolling with 5 sec. to go. Yep, that's a true Heisman contender there boys! :rolleyes:

Yeah Hunter Lawrence kicked a Vinatieri-like clutch FG so it's only natural that everyone will talk about that play, but the play of the game, the play that saved UT's season was not the kick.

No, it was Hunter Lawrence tackling the punt returner on that long return in the fourth quarter. Were it not for Lawrence almost pile-driving that dude, he would've scored a TD instead of getting tackled at the ten. Texas D stepped up and forced a three-and-FG.

That was the difference in the game.

The only way Nebraska was gonna score a TD was on special teams or a turnover. If Lawrence doesn't stop the guy, he scores easily and Texas loses that game.

Who cares that he almost escaped? He wrapped him up long enough to allow help defenders to come and finish him off. He basically stopped the dude cold and the returner wiggled his way out of it momentarily.

I'm glad someone finally brought up the Tenn game. We wouldn't be talking about 'Bama going to the title game possible if Cody doesn't block two field goals. If that game happened to be the title game we'd all be talking about how much 'Bama sucked and was overrated.

Did Colt McCoy suck or just did Suh dominate the game? I have the feeling its the later big time.

I suppose you could make a good case for TCU.

Cinci won the game on a botched extra point attempt. Yet I guess they just "found a way to win".

No one is mentioning undefeated Boise State.

I don't buy the Alabama is going to crush UT. In fact I think the game is going to look similar to what we saw tonight. Two defenses teeing off against opposing offenses.

I'm expecting UT will challenge McElroy to win the game as opposed to a healthy Ingram. On the other hand I expect 'Bama to challenge the almost non existent UT running game to step up and win the game.

You made it sound like he was the Ultimate Warrior and crushing this go to the earth

In defense of punters, that is something they can do (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_FhCgLeuO0I&feature=related)

Heart breaking loss really, but you have to be proud of the way they played the game.

Hopefully Huskers football will continue its revival and the D won't fall over without Suh next year.

If they can find a way to improve the offense next season, they can afford to slide a little on defense. They had a championship caliber defense this year, but that offense was a abomination. (honestly one of the worst I've ever witnessed)

I really did give them a nice season thank you!

Would the Cornhuskers have gotton that reprieve (the "phantom" xtra second to attempt a FG) if the situation had been turned around ? I dunno and we'll never know, but I got my doubts ?
VY was the stallion and Colt is, well Colt is the Colt. Being a Big 12 fan I'll pull for UT in the big game but sure as hell won't bet on them unless I'd get lots & lots of points. TCU, BSU, etc would have been so much better and fairer.
BTW, who ever compared Suh to our boy Okoye, sober up son. And hard to imagine he won't be the first non-QB if not the first player taken in the NFL Draft in April ?

Suh had in one game a career year for some players ...wow
12 tackles, seven of those for loss, and 4.5 sacks.

Yeah, but they had a non-Heisman contender QB that didn't SUCK all night. C'mon, be honest here. If the Nebraska defender had actually not taken that last step toward Colt (forcing the throw), the clock WOULD have run out due to him not being game aware enough to throw the ball early, rather than slow rolling with 5 sec. to go. Yep, that's a true Heisman contender there boys! :rolleyes:

Really? You are going to play the what if game?

Well what if Bama lost to Tenn by not blocking 2 field goals?

Yeah, lets not play the what if game ok? Thanks.

I know some of y'all are Nebraska fans and I know some of y'all just hate Texas, but the referees made the right call.

This isn't the first time something like this has been reviewed so there is a precedent for it. And the call was the correct one. If you can't admit that there was clearly one second left after the play then you are being blinded by something (be it hate or passion).

I'm damn proud of our defense. You can say whatever you want about Nebraska's offense but it's a fact that nobody has come even close to dominating them like that.

Texas didn't deserve this win. Our offense deserved to lose this game. A tiny part of me wishes we had lost so that Greg Davis would finally get the axe.

I'll take the win. I have absolutely no expectations about the National Championship Game and honestly right now I don't even think I care. I'm just glad we finally won another Big XII title.

But Kast, even if there were zero seconds left on the clock, the ref's would have given UT the 3 points magically since they have such a horns bias. Everyone knows that! lol

Also here is a funny story about Nebraska coaches and Big 12 officials immediatly after the game.

Nebraska coaches come off sounding really stupid now.

I'm not sure I would have handled the situation any better if I were in Pelini's shoes. None of us were in the position that he was in so it's hard for us to judge. I hear he did vote Texas #1 in his final poll though.
