Huskers Nipped by Cats: In a another game that went down to the wire, Nebraska watched a two-point conversion attempt bound incomplete with 4:23 left, allowing Northwestern to escape from Memorial Stadium with a 30-28 win
   It was Nebraska's fifth loss of the season, all by five or fewer points. Tommy Armstrong struggled through the air in the first half but finished 24-of-49 for 291 yards. He added 12 carries for 13 yards and two touchdowns, but Nebraska managed just 82 rushing yards on 38 carries

COMMENTARY

Hamar

People like to harp on play calling, but there’s not much a coach can do when the running game isn’t working and the receivers are dropping passes.”

Bob Hamar*
Grand Island Independent

Dixon

Nebraska is nothing more than what its record would indicate: a 3-5 team that’s lost its ability to win a close game.”

Michael Dixon
Daily Nebraskan

Shatel

I was fooled last week in Minne­apolis. That “new” Nebraska team was a one-week wonder”

Tom Shatel*
Omaha World-Herald

Vogel

If Nebraska doesn’t beat Purdue on the road next week, there’s a real chance it will finish last in its division ... a fate even the 2004 and 2007 teams avoided.”

Brandon Vogel
Hail Varsity

Sipple

One of the program’s biggest challenges at the moment is to avoid feeling anything close to OK about being 3-5.”

Steven M. Sipple*
Lincoln Journal Star

Callahan

After eight games, the reality has sunk in that this is not a very good football team.”

Sean Callahan
HuskerOnline

Stryker

It will take focused effort to extricate the Huskers from this bog and it will not happen overnight because simply put, Nebraska is not a physical team.”

Tad Stryker

Dienhart

Forty-eight passes! Remember when the Huskers used to run the ball, then run it again, and again, and again?”
