The straight scoop
from Colonel Mustard
Jan. 5, 2001
Sorry this is so late but it has been a long week. I think it is interesting that Northwestern was overrated only after we pounded them. We put a beating on them in a manner that probably no one
else could have. It was the game tape that you can watch over and
over and enjoy. Crouch still has his injury problems. But he ran very well
Bobby played like I thought he would all year.
This is without a
most confusing team I can ever remember. We got a pass rush and were
in the secondary. Vanden Bosch and Newcombe could have made the
they had played like this all year.
No matter what, it was fun to smash the Big 10 champs and it showed
talent that we really had. The problem this year was chemistry and
that I know the source. Next year we will be better off without
problem. The young I-backs, particuliarly Collins, were very quick
We were absolutely unstoppable on offense. But the defense and the
teams that struggled all year were terrific, and that gives one a lot of
I will address next year next week. The strangest season I can
remember is over, and I still don't what to make of it. But it is
when the Sporting News's college football editor is writing about
Nebraska's season didn't work out.
