The Huskers can brace for a dose of panic from the fan base as the potential for discord within the locker room grows.
They say you make your own luck and, fact is, in three of those four losses ... Nebraskas defense was asked to seal the win. It didnt.
This defense is not deep enough to hold up without any support from the offense.
Confidence. Belief. Discipline. Veteran leadership. One team had all those Saturday, and the other did not.
In this cruelest of seasons, you wonder how much worse it can get for Nebraska.

Its hard to make Stave look like a good passer, but the Husker defense managed to do it.
Are the football gods angry with Nebraska? Is one of them a Bo Pelini fan?
Making plays at critical moments requires confidence, trust and belief. Nebraska has none of those qualities right now.
The maddening finish keeps Nebraska in a waiting-to-exhale mode.
