    Nothing to be excited about in that win

    Fire Pelini; the sooner he goes the better.

    We needed a miracle to beat a Northwestern team that just reeled off 4 losses. Yeah, that's really something to be excited about.

    Sad how far we've fallen...

    Yep. Forfeit the win. Good call.

    I agree with you.

    You have to be happy for the team though. Quite a miraculous finish!

    The way Nebraska's players were dropping like flies I thought it was a great win. Idiotic post of the year in my book.

    I'm choosing to live in the moment. When Matt Davison made his catch against Missouri, it was a great moment in college football. Both plays will live on, long after this coach is gone.

    You can choose to cry in your beer. Your choice. But sometimes you have to just enjoy what you get.

    The kids kept fighting. I thought they looked whipped in the second quarter but they stayed in it. Good for them.

    Idiotic, no. NW is the most injured team in the B1G. The Huskers needed a miracle to win the game. The Huskers have several injured players now. It looks bleak going forward if you factor all that in.

    If you can't enjoy a game and a victory like you might want to find something else to do with your Saturdays.

    We should all enjoy it, and I certainly am. I'm not into the wins and losses so much right now. I'm more concerned about the trends. Is NU trending up?

    I'm really happy for the players, especially Kellogg. I'm going to enjoy this win while I can. Judging by all the red flags, the rest of the season could get ugly.

    "Idiotic" . . . is uncalled for . . . just apologize and move on.

    It was a great win for NEBRASKA and a great win for the players . . . and we are excited here in Southern California!!

    However, factually . . . for Head Coach Pelini to need a "Hail Mary Pass" with 4 seconds remaining is concerning against a team which has lost 4 in a row . . . has a lot of players hurt, is 4-5 . . . etc. There is merit in the observation but there is excitement for the FANS, the PLAYERS and the TEAM!

    I think you should apologize for the term directed at the fellow Husker fan - it is his OPINION.

    It's the times we live in. Somehow we lost the game we actually won. Always finding the negatives in any situation.
