    Find a hardcore football fan insisting that football is only a game and itís a safe bet that fanís team is having a really lousy year. Another couple ways of coping are getting mad or, when bad morphs into ridiculous, just laughing it off by poking fun at the situation and the key contributors. After a 2 - 4 start where NUís chances ...

    Goodness. Nebraska just keeps coming up with new and inventive ways to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

    The season so far has been a Peanuts cartoon where Charlie Brown runs up to kick the ball, only to have Lucy pull it away and punch him in the groin as time expires.

    Chalk it up to whatever you want: coaching, players who don't know how to win, bad schemes, poor play calls, horrible luck, injuries, parity, curses, lack of talent, karma, a super secret conspiracy to destroy the football program - frankly, none of it matters now.

    We're here: halfway through this season in a position that is unfamiliar to anybody under the age of 60. Two wins and four painful, gut-wrenching losses. We can (and will) discuss and dissect the things the players and coaches can and/or should* do to turn things around.

    *Choosing to the have wind at your back for the fourth quarter seems like a good place to start, but that's just me.

    What I'm more interested in is how we the fans choose to react. As I see it, there are a handful of distinct options:

    • You can call for changes. Fire somebody (or as I sarcastically wrote, everybody).

    • You can be angry. Would this be happening if we fired Bo? Or Frank? Is any loss unacceptable to you?

    • You can check out. The fans I saw leaving with 8:43 left in the game likely fall into this group.

    • You can blindly support the team. ...

    Heartbreak version 4.0. That's the best way to describe yet another last-second loss by the Cornhuskers. For the fifth time in six games, Nebraska had the lead heading into the fourth quarter. Unfortunately, for the fourth time this season, the Huskers lost on essentially the last play of the game. After Wisconsin ricocheted

    Going into the season, the book said that Mark Bankerís defense, geared to stop the run, would be a good fit for the Big Ten West, with its lack of good passers. The book said you should make Joel Stave beat you with his arm.

    So much for the book. Stave found a way to do exactly that Saturday as Wisconsin edged Nebraska

    All season, I'll be ranking the teams in the Big Ten from one to Maryland. To see my predictions for how the season will play out, click here.

    As always, if you think Iím right, wrong, or clinically insane, let me know in the comments.

    Prepare to disagreeÖ

    1. Ohio State - Yeah, I know the Buckeyes are still not clicking on all cylinders. But a game with Maryland should be a good way to work out some of the kinks.

    2. Michigan State - What do the Spartans have to do to jump Ohio State? For starters, they can avoid falling asleep at the wheel like they ...

    At the top of the unofficial "Ten Commandments of Husker Football" for coaches and players should be:

    "Thou shalt not be disrespectful of Husker football fans, the football program, the University of Nebraska or the state of Nebraska."

    Which brings to mind the two dissing incidents directed toward Husker fans by starting senior Husker LT and co-captain, Alex Lewis. Lewis, if you will recall, was a Colorado player who pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in an incident back in 2013 in Colorado. He was sentenced to 45 days in jail and

    For the second time in five games, NU went from being seconds away from sealing a victory, to unwrapping a miraculous defeat. The initial reactions to each adventure differed dramatically. Stunned silence followed the BYU game and morphed into accountability for mistakes by the staff. Immediately ...

    This coming Saturday, Mike Riley will try and keep Nebraska's season from coming off the rails. The Huskers should be 4-1, but the fact is they are 2-3 - and off to their worst start since 1959. There are only so many 'moral victories' or 'lessons to be learned' that the team can take away from its three losses and the manner in which they have lost them. Eventually, you have to wonder if these losses will start to weigh on the psyche of the team. ESPN's Mitch Sherman pointed out recently that in the season-opening, Hail Mary loss to BYU, Nebraska's ...

    No Champaign for this team,
    Huskers fall in heartbreaking fashion 14-13

    Ok let me be the first to apologize for the knee jerk reaction. After the game I was upset, as I am sure most everyone out there in Husker land is. I would
