Sights, sounds and other stuff

Husker fans watching Saturday night’s Nebraska-Miami game on the tube saw something pretty special, but for those of us who were there, it’s going to be a game we’ll all remember for the rest of our lives.
I’ve seen lots of games in that stadium, but never one like that.
It was a Saturday night special.
Miami, forever the bad boys of college football, certainly lived up to their reputation as we all know. By now that’s been well-documented.
But I can’t help but wonder if it’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. Their reputation precedes them, so why is anyone surprised when fights and/or skirmishes break out?

Crushed. Giltner gives up 82 points at BDS in loss Friday night in Shickley

The No. 3-ranked (OWH) Giltner football team showed the ability to move the ball in the first half after trailing by as many as 14 points to tie the game at haltime 36-36. That seemed like a distant memory in the second half as the Hornets were shut out while the Eagles ran what seemed to be the same run play over, and over and over for huge chucks of yardage and touchdowns, ulimately scoring 46 second-half points on the way to a 82-36 rout. Giltner's offense struggled in the second half after being able to answer scoring drives by BDS in the first half. Quarterback and linebacker Ben Hinrichs tried to shoulder the load most of the third quarter, using his feet when he couldn't find a receiver down the field.
