It wasn’t the game they wanted to be in and it showed early but they also played physical and tough football for the full 60 and beat a game and pretty solid cornhusker team.
Murray was asleep for the first 20 or so minutes but he got oiled up pretty good and shredded the nations reported #1 overall pass defense and set all kinds of bowl records. TK and the bottom half of the WR depth chart played great, the freshmen RB’s were solid and the line did alright and we scored 45….plus a 7 for the other team.
Defense was a bit sloppy but physical and very focused when the game needed to be decided and no one got hurt which was in the back of about 10 players minds on our defensive squad. I’m going to miss all those guys but especially Shawn Williams, the guy is just nasty. I wish all these guys the best of luck and great success in the league.
The freshman PK should kick 7,000 PAT’s a week and at least 70,000 FG attempts before spring ball. The freshman punter is now a sophomore and just needs to keep up the effort.
Overall, not the game I was hoping my team would finish the season in but they still showed up and played hard and won. It’s obviously not the season I wanted but it’s kind of right where I expected. I expect more next season and hope this new recruiting class will come in ready to go.
