    Will, stop throwing softballs and just say it:
    Taylor Martinez is not the one. At least we know he is the type of player that got to be feeling perfect to play good. He can’t improvise his play to be effective when he is hurt. He is just fast (if he is not hurt) and has no moves and below average arm. He panics under pressure and he fumbles too much. That’s the truth. If Taylor Martinez is the QB the Huskers are counting on forget about it!
    There. That’s what you meant right?

    No more time to sugarcoat things my man, this is business. Let’s get real here.

      Ah , so you think my take on Taylor Martinez should have been more like the “real” Wayne Brady and let it all come out? Remember that comedy skit on The Dave Chappelle Show? One of the funniest comedy bits ever! Here’s the link Warning: Strong Language and Violence — Chappelle and Brady Skit on YouTube.

  2. No Sugar Prediction

    Let me lay it out for you:
    Nebraska will be humiliated by Wisconsin and Ohio State. That defense may have worked in the Big 12 but their boys will get ran over by the best in the Big Ten.
    No offense means no offense. Hoping and praying for some freshman to save their ass is like waiting on the Powerball lottery ticket. It’s just not going to happen in this conference.
    By the time Nebraska reaches the Hawks Bo Pelini will have already blown a gasket and the Cornhead faithful, like Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, will have resigned to the fact that “we’re not in Kansas Big 12 Country anymore.
    I’m being generous. At the very best Nebraska is 8-3 with 3 conference losses by the time they meet us. It’s more likely to be 7-4 or 6-5. Not good enough to make it to Indy.
    Iowa will put the final nail in the coffin.

    Yes sir, the Chappelle and Brady thing was hilarious!

    • Go Hawkeyes!

      Manny, I can’t see Bo Pelini and that talent going 6-6. It’s possible but not likely.
      Fresno state and Washington could be tricky, but I see them going 4-0 into conference play. Wisconsin lost 3 starters on the O-line plus their QB. Nebraska has a good chance of an upset there. Nebraska vs Ohio State could be the Game of the Week—that is if the Buckeyes can survive Miami and Michigan State undefeated without Pryor and the rest of the suspende gang. Their first game back will be in Lincoln can you imagine the press for that game if both teams come in undefeated—HUGE. Could the Huskers be 6-0 after that game? If they do that means they answered those questions and will be well on their way to punching a ticket to the Big Ten Championship game.
      The only way Nebraska finishes anywhere near 6-6 is a serious rash of injuries and/or if the offense regresses from last year’s inconstancy to being horrible. When is the last time you saw a truly horrible Husker offense?

      • No Sugar: Seriously

        Will Cummings: Whoever you are you must walk around smelling like butt-crack, seeing that you have your head so far up Nebraska’s ass. Besides I thought the topic was does Iowa or Nebraska have the best chance of making it to the conference championship?
        Seriously, do you really think Nebraska is going to come into the Big Ten and make it to the title game in their first year and do it with that schedule? It didn’t happen for Penn State and it won’t for Nebraska. Iowa clearly has the better chance of winning the division. No way do the Huskers beat Ohio State with those suspended players coming back. They might already have a loss to Michigan State and they will be jacked to close out the season with straight wins. If they come in undefeated they will for sure blow them out. Anyway they win, Huskers lose. I say Huskers go 8-4 at best (if their lucky).and the loss to Iowa in the last game of the season will seal their fate.
        Finally, what are the odds that in one season Nebraska will find all the right answers to the problems they have on offense? I’ll tell you, “ Looooooooooooong.”

          No Sugar: Don’t get to close to me because you’re liable to smell the foul stench of Ohio State, K-State and Iowa emanating from me too. Not a “fan” of any single team but I follow and admire those college football programs mentioned plus Nebraska.
          I would be shocked to see NU finish .500 or below and I would be shocked to see them win the national title but not shocked to see them play in it. That mean I believe they have a good shot at winning the Big Ten.
          I am a strong believer in the concept that championship football teams are formed during the summer and fall camps. What Nebraska does between now and the first game will greatly determine what happens during the season: Team unity, leadership, drive and purpose and new stars will be formed during this time. I have no gut clue of what will emerge. We will all find out in a few months

    Great preview of a game that I feel will determine the B10 West division (even if neither team wins it). Both teams have real ?s. Nebraska has a much tougher schedule than Iowa, and its against a bunch of teams that they aren’t used to playing. I love their defense but don’t see them making it without at least 2-3 losses before playing Iowa for the Cornucopia Cup on the Friday after Thanksgiving. The B10 is much deeper and more physical than the B12, and especially the B12 North. Iowa has to reload in many positions, but they still have a lot of talent, a powerhouse line and running game, a much easier schedule and a coaching staff that knows their B10 opponents very well. I’m pretty sure that that game in Lincoln will have a lot of hype and won’t disappoint! Go Hawks!

  5. Nebraska Will Suck In Ten
    May 31, 2011 @ 12:21 pm

    Nebraska will suck this year in the Ten! No way they win more than 3 conference games with that crappy offense led by a one-dimensional, gimpy-legged, sloppy bitch. She was horrible in her last few starts. It just goes to show that girls shouldn’t be playing football.

    The Hawkeyes will put an exclamation mark on a horrible inaugural Big Ten season for the Cornhuskers, while Martina looks on from the sidelines with headset on and clipboard in hand, grateful that she isn’t out there getting whacked.
    I can’t wait to see all those long-jawed faces in Lincoln after the ass whoppin the Hawks put on them.

    Go Hawks!

      NU owns Iowa. The only reason why Martinez is on the sideline holding a clipboard is because we will be up by 21 or more points by halftime. You guys have zero chance of beating us in Lincoln. ZERO!

    Keep dreaming buddy. I hear that Martina is in Cali working with a QB coach. That says a lot about your lousy coaching. No wonder there hasn’t been any NFL QBs from Nebraska.

    Lets see Illinois was your No. 4 team last year and Mizzou BEAT them pretty handily and we beat Mizzou pretty handily. Also what has Iowa done late int he year the last two years LOST and had a very hard time winning once they started losing. We do not have the same OC you do. Our toughest games will be over after Ohio St and Wis. and there are three games that are poss. losses there with Wis. probably the toughest team with all of what is going on in Ohio. A 0-2 loss season is more likely. And they are throwing your best at us. Mich has a new coach, Ohio St the same and lost players, Minn has a new coach and we beat the team that beat your No. 4 team and Mich St is a bit up and down.

    Oh and remember we beat Mizzou with Taylor being hurt in that game and our 3rd string QB in. Plus we have the Wildcat with our RB and he does that pretty well. If our OC last year would have played that instead of trying to pass on OU all the time we might have beaten OU. Plus we were getting to QB’s doing a 3 man rush fairly freq. and most of the time when we rushed 4. Plus Bo has been the DC of a NC team and has shown he can move people around and get good results and the ability to make half time and game time changes. Something that previous DC Cosgrove could never dream of doing. He wrecked Neb. D and made a MN D even worse Bo brought it back. Plus remember two years ago we held OU to a single TD and we are returning most of our D and O.

    Three Big Ten losses for Nebraska: Wisconsin, OSU and Michigan State. I think it will be Wisconsin versus Michigan State for the championship.
