Sunday Morning QB - Hypocricy on Parade
These are the days that I love writing about NU fans. Oh sure, watching you implode and lose 70-10 was fun. And yes, Oklahoma State running up and down the field on you last year was mildly amusing as well. But the days where you are at the top of your insecure game are days like today. These are the days that I can’t wait to fire up my PC…grab a cup of coffee, and check out to see just what idiotic sewage drips out of your keyboards.
Let’s start with the positives first shall we?
Mocking your uncreative and extremely predictable attitudes not withstanding, I’m well aware that Nebraska…at one point..was a very good program. I’m vaguely familiar with your National Titles (some of them weren’t even split with other teams), I’ve seen you play in person. I’ve watched highlight shows for years and years. I think it’s safe to say that deep down, I completely respect Nebraska’s standing as a ½ decent football program, that most likely will never sink to the depths of Kansas, San Jose or Florida International. (At least, I don’t THINK you will.)
So fast forward to the comments over yesterday’s game…where you very quickly (and predictably I might add), throw out the fact that I’ve told you for months that Wake is a pretty good team. And yes, I’ll readily admit Wake is a ½ decent team, who has won some big games in the past few years. (OK, last year). I’ll even give you the fact that the game was played on the road….although from the looks of it..that place was not only sold out..but apparently Wake Forest fans don’t really give a shit about their team very much. How do you not sell that out? Perhaps you’re not the draw you think you are? Regardless, what you are doing is choosing to ignore is the WAY you played against that team…pathetically (and unsuccessfully I might add) trying to spin the game is your only hope to save face, within the rapid oncoming realization that you just might not be as good as you thought.
I like how last week you instantly threw at me, “Don’t even think about using Wake’s injured QB as an excuse”. Ummmm….no. Did any of you actually WATCH the game? Do any of you have enough common sense to recognize when a QB sucks? That kid under center for Wake yesterday was horrible. I’m not saying that as the unbiased blogging columnist that I am…I’m saying it because it was true. Is it mildly upsetting to you that Wake outgained you, running the same three plays over and over and over again? Did it cross your mind that BC last week held that team to TWO yards rushing? (For you math majors..that’s 1+1).
That kid at QB COMPLETELY changed the game, and you STILL nearly lost. The best part is, I haven’t even touched on the fact that they dropped a wide-open pass, nor have I mentioned today (yet again) the fact that the refs completely bent them over, on one of the worst non-calls I’ve ever seen to end a game.
Let’s face it: Bashing Gary Pinkel right now isn’t going to make JC Keller hit open receivers. Mocking my creative writing skills isn’t going to make Mo Purify give a shit and actually CATCH a ball that hits him in the hands. Throwing out names to me that would make a 5th grader roll his eyes isn’t going to make your D-line any faster. (They’re very very slow).
I find it more than amusing that you’re throwing out the “A win’s a win” card, when just last week, a vast majority of you mocked teams like Missouri for doing the exact same thing. (twice now). Nothing to me is more hypocritical (and funny) than watching you lecture the rest of us that it’s all about rolling up yards one week..and then doing a 180, and proposing that NONE of that matters. Even worse, you’re touting Wake Forest as the same team that won 10 games last year….which may still be true. However, that Wake forest team is now 0-2, and is being run by a first year QB, who was limited to running draw plays on 3rd and 6 in NU territory.
Look, I understand more than anyone your insatiable need to be recognized for your greatness. TRUST me, I do. But you’ve backed yourself into this corner, and now you have to prepare to deal with the after-effects.
JC isn’t NEARLY as good as you thought
Your O-line looked choppy at times
Your D-line is slow and inconsistent
Your DB’s can’t handle physical receivers
Your special teams play is average at best
Your running game is predictable
You have the 5th best set of WR’s in the conference. (if that)
And what does all this say about your coaching staff? We already know what magic Kevin Cosgrove can run, but when an “Experienced leader” like JC is getting delay of game penalties because he doesn’t know what to do…isn’t that a problem with the coaching staff? Isn’t it an issue with the guy you just gave 1.75million per year to, when you make the IDIOTIC call to go for it on 4th and 2 at the opposing 40? (Especially when the opposing QB has the throwing ability of an 8th grade girl. Granted, the 8th grade girl might have more experience than him).
But don’t worry right? Help is on the way right?
Ummmmm maybe not. Remember when you guys were talking about Blaine Gabbert leading you through a smooth transition next year? Remember when you touted him as a 4 year starter right off the bat? Well, Blaine may not get to start his game next week…and it aint because of injury.
Perhaps he would play a bit better if you idiots would stop text messaging him, and filling his head with delusions that NOBODY could possibly live up to. The end of Joe Millionaire was easier to predict than this.
* Speaking of answering questions…I find it pretty funny that some of you..with nothing else left in the cannon apparently, have tried to smack Missouri in defense of your own teams shitty performance? Umm…since when was winning by 13 on the road to an SEC team not good enough? Last time I checked, a double digit win wasn’t anything to be real concerned about. What’s that? 500 yards given up? Ummm..perhaps you might be a bit more worried about your slow-defensive lineman and linebackers trying to chase the big Tiger receivers up and down the field. And for the record, the same QB you guys mock for his youtube antics is 68 for 96 (71%), for 690 yards, 8TD’s and 0 int’s. Does it really matter if the Tigers give up 500 yards if their offense is scoring at will?
The problem there is, in the spread offense, it’s hard to grind the ball out. Plus, if your offense is scoring in 3 minute spurts…isn’t it a bit much to ask your defense to be at the top of their game when you’re up 28 and have to be on the field still for 40 minutes solid?
My biggest worry as a Mizzou fan is that they’ll be looking ahead to OU, because in that environment, with that matchup and seeing how JC handles pressure…might be a long evening for you. I’m sure we might talk about that game here a time or two in the meantime. Either way, if you, as a Husker fan, are not a bit more worried this morning about that matchup, you might want to lay off the meth and come down a bit before you start making idiotic statements like that.
More to come in a few days. I’d add some more, but I have an Elite 11 QB awards ceremony to go to. (I’m being named MVP). Apparently, they give those things away like candy at a parade.
Enjoy USC week. Can’t wait to see you make an idiot out of yourself on Gameday.
