You mean the team that only put up 20 points on Kansas? HAH! Wait till Tannehill gets a crack at you guys. Grey, Swope, Fuller and Nwachacku are gonna make some big plays! Watch out for Miller rushing your QB! :D

You couldn't beat UT at Austin this year, what makes you think you can beat A&M?

Actually, they lost to Texas AT HOME.

Martinez is nowhere near 100%, so look for the Defense to come after him hard. See Griffin III last weekend.

The question is whether Nebraska can stop the A&M run game up the middle and based on how they've played, its not looking good.

Add in 89K hyped up hungry fans who will be LOUD at Kyle and A&M wins the game by a touchdown.

With a defense as good as the Blackshirts 20pts is MORE than enough to beat most anyone. Too bad that the pass is A&M's strength given that your going up against the #1 passing defense in the land.

What makes us think we can beat A&M? Because your A&M :)

Martinez may not be 100% but thats ok, it might just mean we do what we do best and pound the ball with Helu Jr and Burkhead.

Well it seems like you have uncovered our only weakness, the power running game. If you guys persist with that it could get tight so I'll concede on that point.

Actually I have been here nearly a year now, got here just before the holiday bowl last year.

I was a blase about the Huskers till I went to Lincoln for a game, that sold me a bit more on the whole thing.

I really started this thread just to poke the bear so to speak but I am confident that we can pull it out on Saturday and sent A&M back to the ranks of the great unwashed errrr I mean unranked.

Wow!! That's right, now that I think about it! Congrats, but are you missing the "Mother Land"?

Anywho, Nebraska's defense is going to focus on stopping the run (C. Gray) which means they're going to leave Fuller in one on one coverage too often. Also, I believe Tannehill will have more bootleg type designed runs... Then factor in Kyle Field and the emotions of today (Bonfire Collapse)..

That said, Nebraska can win the game, but they are not going to provide "a good ole mud hole stompin'!"

Hope Aria and the family is doing well in America's Heartland!

Yeah, we miss NZ. America does our heads in sometimes, totally different to what we are used to.

Nebraska has a very fast defense, running QBs are meat and potatoes to them. Either bring the power running or bring the box of tissues.

As for playing at A&M, the Huskers have been FAR better on the road than at home this year. You'd all have a better chance if you were playing up here.

Tannehill isn't a running QB, though he does have great ability to escape from the pocket and every once in a while we'll do a designed run/zone read for him.

Also, as I'm sure Esoom and maybe wolverinefan(?) can attest(other current students at A&M I think, possibly more) the buzz around campus is pretty electric. We're going to be fired up for this one as we're fighting for a chance to make it into the Big 12 title game, however slim it is. I've got tickets for 2nd deck, 3rd row at the 45 yard line, which are PRIMO seats if anyone's ever sat on the student side of Kyle Field, so I'm freaking pumped for this.

Either way, hope to have a great game for a final road sendoff of the Corn, and hopefully both teams bring their A game!

I hear you!! I'm sure given your situation, I would be missin' home too. I just hope they're treating y'all well up there! If Marcie is the benchmark, than I'm sure y'all are doing fine and being treated well!

Anywho, the reason I mentioned Tannehill on designed bootleg runs is because it's a misdirection play which works well against aggressive fast defenses. Also, the "peso" defense is designed to stop the spread offense. A&M runs a pro-style offense. This again favors Fuller in the passing game and Tannehill on those misdirection plays. Remember, Tannehill while not the fastest cat in the world was a WR, meaning he can run a little bit.

We'll see. That's why they play the games, no? :)

No he's not. Again though, that's because Sherman runs a "Pro-style offense".. I just have a feeling the Aggies are going to mix in a wrinkle. Think Matt Schaub play action pass where he has 20 yards in front of him. Schaub's got all day to throw, Tannehill takes off. Watch! We'll see some of that.

As far as the second bolded part, F that! I hate teams that break-up conferences. See Arkansas and the SWC! ;)

It should be a great game, maybe even a Big 12 Championship preview if you get one over on us.

My little Kiwi friend, you need to work on your "smack". That was pretty weak!! :D There have been plenty of badasses that came from A&M.

It should be a fun game. In any event, pay attention to Kyle Field, the fans, the tradition and the respect that A&M fans have in general. Darryl (aka Double Barrel) mentioned in another thread about how well he and his family was treated while at Kyle Field for his enemy son who plays for another school (I kid, I kid)...

I think it's awesome that you have embraced a bunch of people who are so enthused about husking corn in yet, a year's time. That's awesome!! We however, prefer eating corn. :D

Two dropped TD passes will get you booed or heckled in most places and certainly will prove you to be over-hyped.

Saw that on Sportscentre today, talk about great planning and forethought being put into that production.

Your going to wonder if there is only one endzone being used tomorrow too, as the Huskers keep scoring in the A&M one. (Just to relate it back to this thread somehow).

In town this Thanksgiving week to spend time with friends & family, so got a chance to watch last nights game and I promise you the Aggies had their
12th man working for them full-time and he wasn't in the stands.
If you don't know what I mean by that, let me give you a hint: Cornhuskers had 8 times as many penalities as A&M and 14 times the penalty yardage. Does that help ?

I was at the game and Kyle ELECTRIC! Very loud all game long. The 12th Man was definitely a factor in this big win, though the Husker fans will claim its a screw job by the refs. Haven't yet rewatched the game, but the only questionable call IMO was the roughing the passer penalty. Pelini was his own worst enemy by riding the refs all game long. He lost his composure and his team was undisciplined which cost them a lot of penalties.

Remember that flag they threw on the Aggie DB for pass interfearance, then picked up ? It was very late in the game, a very meanful play. Do You honestly think they pick up that flag had it been thrown on a Cornhusker DB ? I think not.
Trust me that was a little kick in the azz to the Cornhuskers, a little good bye gift to them as they exited the Big 12 conference.

They picked up the flag because it was not pass interference. The only bad call was the roughing the passer call. The Huskers played undisciplined football and now are trying to blame the refs.

Bad officiating, good officiating and injuries are part of every game.
Last week, A&M had 2 touchdowns called back and were fighting the refs the whole game and STILL found a way to win on the road.

The majority of the calls on Nebrasak were personal fouls, false starts and illegal procedures. That is lack of discipline, NOT a screw job. There was only 1 holding call against the Huskers, which is the weapon of choice for refs and screw jobs.

I was at the game and sure the calls helped. But to call it a screw job is asinine. The Aggies just came into the game more composed and under control, and the defense was electric. Hell, just about every time the Nebraska offense had a penalty they continued to drive down the field and get within scoring range. But the Wrecking Crew showed up unlike I have ever seen and were not going to allow them to score a touchdown.

Cody Green is the backup at Neb. I actually know his sister, who is a Baylor bear, because she was an intern at Chevron a few years ago. At the time, Cody was being recruited by A&M, LSU, OU, Neb and others. He had made a verbal commitment to A&M, but later switched to Nebraska because he didn't care for Mike Sherman. Turns out we didn't miss much :)

I would repeat it but I don't want to risk others finding out and getting there first.

Does it involve magic mushrooms and a white rabbit? Cause I followed those directions and while it was a great trip, I didn't find the million dollars. :boogereater:

Right, but not quite the same psychedelic effect. ;)

I hope enough money that y'all can make another trip down here... OR are y'all gonna go to San Diego?? :foottap:

I haven't seen anything, but I would not be surprised if he was fed up with Pelini's temper...

Hmmmm... supposedly confirmed by a grad assistant.

Remember that flag they threw on the Aggie DB for pass interfearance, then picked up ? It was very late in the game, a very meanful play. Do You honestly think they pick up that flag had it been thrown on a Cornhusker DB ? I think not.
Trust me that was a little kick in the azz to the Cornhuskers, a little good bye gift to them as they exited the Big 12 conference.

I read the penalties were 16 (neb) - 2 (good guys)

I would say five of those were false starts, two for kung fu fighting, and one for intentional grounding. Take those stupidity penalties away and it's only 8 - 2.

I will give you the roughing the passer call. That was weak. That all being said Bo needs to take his meds before a game. Those temper tantrums can't be great for recruiting.

You're right, we should be looking for the Emerald City, a talking lion and flying monkeys. Maybe while we're there we get Thorn a heart.

OK, a serious question, Texans-related:

I was really impressed by Nebraska's tackling during the game. They seemed to be doing a great job through most of the game at tackling: wrapping people up, making shoestring tackles, taking players down without letting them push forward for 3 extra yards after the tackle started.

I also heard the announcers say that Nebraska had problems earlier in the year with poor tackling. So, they seem to have made a dramatic improvement.

What I'd like to know is (if anyone knows): was there anything special they did to improve this (e.g. did they just practice, or have a new coach, or what)? And, if so, what would it take to bring this to the Texans?

Pellini will get a "talking to"...

Nebraska chancellor to address Bo Pelini's outbursts at Taylor Martinez, refs
By Cindy Boren
Nebraska Coach Bo Pelini is in a bit of hot water after yelling at freshman quarterback Taylor Martinez (and triggering an internet wave of rumors that Martinez had quit the team) and screaming at officials.

Pelini, whose repeated outbursts were captured on TV and who was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct in the fourth quarter of the Cornhuskers' 9-6 loss to Texas A&M in College Station, Texas, has gotten the collegiate equivalent of a call to the principal's office.

"I think it was very unfortunate," Harvey Perlman, chancellor of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, said, "and I think it's something we'll have to address with Bo." Link (http://voices.washingtonpost.com/early-lead/2010/11/nebraska_chancellor_to_address.html)

I would imagine the talk will go something like....

"On the record, for shame. Off the record, no shit, right?"

Not in his corner is all but one call was legit IMO.

That said, getting in your INJURED QBs face, yelling at him and poking him in the chest certainly won't help your recruiting any.

Yeah, it was. It was a ridiculous call, but I kind of wonder if Bo Pelini's attitude throughout the game made his team a target for penalties. He was a loudmouth jackass the whole time. I don't think I have ever seen a coach act like that as much as he did during one game.

That was weird too. What the hell could he possibly be angry about with Taylor? The guy got stepped on by his own guard on a handoff play. It's not like he was out of position or doing something stupid, like dancing around in the backfield. I don't understand that at all, and the game was only 3-3 at the time.

Rumor is that he texted his Dad when he went back into the locker room. Someone apparently was able able to read his lips when he was caught screaming on the TV.

I heard this secondhand so take it for what it's worth:

When he was in the locker room he texted his dad and told him that the x rays were negative and that he was fine.

One of the GA's told Pelini that Martinez was texting people while he was in the locker room. That pissed Pelini off (rightfully so), but what the GA didn't tell him was that Martinez only texted his dad to let him know that he was okay.

If he was doing that in the NFL, he gets a $10,000 fine... :rolleyes:

Who cares about Martinez or Bo Peilini???? The fact is that Texas (and yes, I normally refer to them as TU) went into Nebraska and punked them. Nebraska heads to College Station, Kyle field and gets punked again. Point being, get outta of the Big XII 'cause y'all can't hang with the conference and especially teams from Texas!!!!.

Run away... Run away to another conference....
Break up a conference.... PUH CEES!!! Not not unlike the Arkansas pigs (that effectively broke up the greatest Conference, ever.) The SWC.......


That said, I love Marcie :heart:

Kiwi too, from NZ that adopted Nebraska after finding treatment and support for Aria!!! *Aria is still in my prayers!!*
