Pinkel-ed Again

I'm not sure what's worse....
Giving a guy a contract extension the day before he goes out and gets beat by a horrible ISU team. Or a team fired up and talking BCS, who's team's biggest win is a 14 point win over said team at home.


PS - I heard some of my Husker internet friends were wondering how I was doing after a horrible Missouri game today. The answer? I've had kicked balls, 5th downs, Tyus Edney and the like. My teams have lost to Troy, Bowling Green, Texas A&M by 77, Kansas State by 66, Michigan State by what seemed like 200. Trust me, it's expected. I just roll my eyes, shake my head and move on. What are ya gonna do?

Mizzou choking down the stretch is like the sun coming up in the East. You just come to expect it each and every year. Absolutely nothing earth-shattering or shocking about it. It comes with the territory.
Ho Hum.
Oh, and by the way..give Ohio State the trophy now and call it a year.

That sucks man. I KNEW that would happen too when I read about it this morning. I thought.."Great, now he's going to go out and tank it."

Right on cue.

Ugh...such is the life of the downtrodden.

Just got back from watching Doc Sadler's boys hand it to the perennially over-rated Creighton Bluejays. Nebraska was picked, rightfully, to finish 10th in the Big 12 this year.

Hope you enjoyed it while it lasted Bluejay fans. With Doc bringing in a top 20 recruiting class Creighton may never beat Nebraska again.

Too bad about your Tigers.. Costly day from bowl game financial aspect.

WHAT IN THE HELL was Dana Altman thinking? Was he even there? 33+ 3 point shots?

I'm not a Creighton fan BY ANY MEANS, but that was one of the worst coaching jobs I've seen in a long long long time. The Creighton trademark has been patience on offense and full-court press. Sadler beat the press by pushing teh ball up the floor. Altman countered by having his guys throw up missed three after missed three. Very poor on his part.

And called it. I will give you much credit. The Huskers will get eaten alive against a team that gets the ball inside...(Majerc(sp) is OK...but a good big man will destroy him.)

Good night for the Huskers I guess.

PS - Missouri will be LUCKY to get a Sun Bowl bid now, and if they lose to KU..which is possible...they'll either be looking at or below. Nice going Gary.

The #1 thing any Mizzou coach in any sport has to overcome is the horrible attitude down there of "We're Missouri..bad things always happen to us". When a whole university feels that way about everything (including their fans) got problems.

Saw it coming a mile away.

OK..just saw the replay of the end of the Missouri game. 1st of all, Daniel was in on 3rd down. Second of all, that had to be the worst "holding" call that has ever been issued by man.

Looked like an awfully nice going away gift for Dan McCartney. Horrible horrible call.

PS - But, with the talent Missouri has, Pinkel should still be bashed for even being in that position. Had ISU made a FG with 3 minutes left, it'd be a moot point.

Pinkel can cry all he wants about a bad holding call, but if you run for a measley 90 yards against ISU then you don't deserve to win.

That's pathetic.

1) The holding call was absolute bullshit. Watch the replay...just horrible.

2) You're right..although Mizzou has had plenty of games where they couldn't run. (Temple was benched again for fumbling). The REAL reason they should be ashamed is allowing a 2nd string ISU fullback named Kock to run for 180 yards.

THAT's pathetic.
