    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.

    Look at you! You've been in corn country for just a few months and you have the lingo down.

    Cornhuskers going into Kyle Field two days after Bonfire anniversary? :cutthroat:

    That goes for you to Marcie!! ;)

    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.

    Well I rarely wager, but on this one Kiwi we'll have to do an avatar bet. My team wins, you gotta wear that beautiful aTm one I'm gonna find for ya, and vice versa if the Huskers pull it off... deal? :)

    Sure, why not. I'll wear an Aggie avatar for a week if the Huskers lose.

    I can't stand any longer because I'm just so flighty with them.

    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! ;)

    I got to tell you the only things that I can tell you about A&M is that they wear some shade of red? Don't they? Kubiak wen't there and their logo is aTm or something.

    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

    Not Smack just an acknowledgement that I have no knowledge about college football outside of my little Husker bubble.

    You prefer to eat your corn with Husks on? Well whatever floats your boat I guess.

    :lol:

    BTW, that "little Husker bubble" is huge. Husker Nation travels and represents very well, no matter where they play.

    They have classy fans as well. Though they'd never field a team if they didn't raid Texas High Schools :)

    Unless you're a Nebraska wide reciever named Niles Paul that has a couple of key dropped passes against Texas.
