Agree 100% !
if the interference call was correctly called at the end of the game
or say one correct holding call on a Wiskey big running play
and the outcome and doc's thoughts my be a little different today
in 8 losses a blown call here and there would make a difference
and could turn a loss or two around
please, no holding calls in 3 years on the opposing offenses
and the article of the retired ref in the Chicago Trib pointing out only
Bo Peleni/Nebraska as thè most difficult coach worse to deal; with, ever
I agree that a few calls here and there could make a difference… unfortunately those things will typically be out of the team’s control unless we’re talking about our own unforced errors (i.e. false starts, personal fouls, etc.).
I would prefer to see the team focus on the things that are within their control… discipline, attention to detail and accountability. If we could just consistently improve in areas like Special Teams, Turnovers and unforced errors I think that would have a positive impact on game results.
I really do believe that we’ll see some progress in these areas next Friday.
Great point on the last two penalties... and reinforces my point. Theoretically the holding penalty was and would be within our control to avoid, and the no-call was not and never will be within our control at all.yes you work on the things you can control
and up until this year the team was so bad a few calls didn't matter much
but this year
never underestimate the influence of the folks in black and white
unforced errors like, holding, pass interference or a block in the back,
what is the difference between the huskers holding call and wiskeys pass interference no call on the final drive?
yep, pretty close,Great point on the last two penalties... and reinforces my point. Theoretically the holding penalty was and would be within our control to avoid, and the no-call was not and never will be within our control at all.
On the B1G Final Drive, Joshua Perry felt that the holding penalty was actually the most detrimental to NU between the two because it pushed us back and caused the need for the long (desperation) passes. I agree with him... and those series of long passes at the end were frustrating for sure.
I think we're all basically saying the same thing though. When NU gets to the point where their consistency and execution is better, we won't have to sweat the things that are out of our control nearly as much.
