COMMENTARY

Johnson

In the program for a cup of coffee, Pat Smith takes a nice place in Husker history.”

Derek Johnson

Stryker

This was the worst the Huskers have been jobbed by an officiating crew since the 16-penalty debacle at College Station, Texas, in 2010.”

Tad Stryker, HuskerMax

Sipple

Bottom line, it would be wrong to break up this staff. To break up this team.”

Steve Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Callahan

If anything the random Facebook posting fueled this team and helped them find a way to win on Saturday.”

Sean Callahan

Hamar

You could certainly make the argument that Pelini has gotten all he could out of this team.”

Bob Hamar
Grand Island Independent

Shatel

As usual with these Huskers, it wasn’t so much how they won as it was how they refused to lose.”
