Final Game Thoughts.

I hate to say it, but if Tanner Lee was half as good as Tommy Armstrong was in the second half of that game, we would have won big today.

To be blunt, Tanner Lee had an off day. His throws were sailing on him all day. But as the game progressed, his timing got worse and worse. When Tre Bryant left the game with a leg injury, the Huskers were suddenly punchless on offense. Hopefully Lee can shake off this performance and learn from it. His four interceptions were killers although to be fair, the first one was a bad drop by Morgan (ball was extremely well thrown) and the last one was caused by a player clipping his arm as he threw.

This is so on the money! Tanner drove me crazy, watching him force the ball, throw the ball too softly, then watch him sail the ball so many times. If this had been corrected at half time, like most of everything else, I believe we at least tie the game in regulation.

I was going to let this go tonight, but since you posted it, I just had to let you know..........I agree with you 100%.

The looks on Tanner's face, in the last minutes of the game, showed me he was unhappy with himself.

As you said, hopefully, he learns from this.

In closing, though, I am so proud of the way they fought back. Also, as said, wish we could have stopped their last td before half time. That was huge!

Was thinking the same, many of us gave up, including me, but they never did, and even with 4 TOs made it a game in Eugene
As long as I had time to pray (and I did!), I did not give up, because I did not want to accept the thought, we were going to be crushed. Was just wishing for 1 td at a time, holding them. Almost, guys! Almost!

Very true and we did come back. Tanner will improve I actually think a game like this may help him in the long run... there were some receivers that could've made some plays and I think Bryant leaving really hurt. Our young team will learn from this...

Not me sorry. Even DeMorny was coming off the field patting himself...my bad. We needed his magic there, right side was open. He has been a fair catch specialist lately. Not sure if coaching staff has taken away his green light

That crossed my mind, also.
