from Colonel Mustard
SCAIRDY GATORS: When that 10-10 halftime score was posted, the biggest cheers had to be coming from Gainesville, Fla. Just like a year ago, the Gators are really smokin'. But I guarantee they do not want to have to mess with us again come January, and our defense is the reason. That was a potent running attack we held in check on Saturday. And now our D hasn't given up a TD in three and a half games. The offense is another story, of course. Remember in the first quarter when the long pass to Holbein was overthrown by a foot or two? The crowd I was with was actually encouraged by that, like, "All right! You could actually tell who he was throwing it to!" This is how far we've lowered the bar.
RANDOM GRIPE: Just six carries for DeAngelo? C'mon, Tom, he's too good to let sit!
THE SIGLER WATCH: A few of you younger types have come up to the Colonel with puzzled looks and asked, "Who the heck's Ernie Sigler, anyway?" Well, Ernie was our best QB in 1967-68, the back-to-back 6-4 seasons in which the Huskers scored a dismal 14.1 points per game. His career passing rating was 106.1. For those who must know, our current QB is at 110.9 right now.
