Losing the close game a new reality for Nebraska Husker faithful

This just in: Nebraska’s football team is officially in transition.
Following yet another disappointing setback on Saturday, this time against Northwestern, the final 30-28 outcome dealt a serious, if not fatal blow to any realistic chances this team had at making a bowl game.
Welcome to the new reality.
The loss was especially difficult to take because Saturday was champions day, as in Husker champions, teams mostly from 20 years ago. The national champion women’s bowling team, the College World Series baseball team, the volleyball teams from 1995 and 2005, the women’s gymnastics team and especially the ‘95 Big Red football team who, led by Tom Osborne and Tommie Frazier, enjoyed their own pre-game tunnel walk to the deafening roar of the crowd.
Hey, wasn’t it just “Back to the Future” day?

Winning solves everything

Break up the Huskers!
Mike Riley for coach-of-the-year!
Okay, maybe I am getting carried away just a bit, but doesn’t it feel nice to simply win a football game?
Following a couple more weeks of heartbreak to Illinois and Wisconsin, Nebraska got back on track up in Minneapolis on a cool, sunny afternoon by dispatching the Gophers, something they couldn’t do the past two seasons.
Going into the game I gave Big Red a 50-50 chance of victory, and no one around these parts was looking forward to going 2-5, so to say this was a “much needed” win would be a gigantic understatement.
Now there’s a chance to get back to .500 this weekend against a Northwestern team that appears to be imploding. The Wildcats looked like a scary bunch just two weeks ago following early season wins against Stanford and Duke, but getting outscored the past two weeks 78-10 against Michigan and Iowa brought this team back to reality.

The Hawks played tough all night with a Heartland Lutheran team, which was on the favorable side of a 48-20 final. But it was arguably the most complete game the Hawks have played all season.
