09:31 AM ET 10.18 | It didn't take Bo Pelini long to put the conversation to rest. Think there might be a quarterback controversy brewing in Lincoln? You can probably find a lot of fans willing to discuss that point with you. But if you want to find a Husker player or coach to offer an opinion, you're pretty much out of luck. [Pelini] made his exasperation with the subject clear in his terse postgame comments, as one reporter too many tried to steer the conversation back to the decision to put senior Zac Lee in to guide the Husker offense after Taylor Martinez was unable to get Nebraska back into Saturday's game with Texas. "I'm not talking about the quarterback situation anymore," Pelini said. "Taylor's our starting quarterback. Nothing is really changed."

They finally came across a team they couldn't beat to the corner. This is Martinez's strength. It wasn't working so they sat him. Big deal.

First thing they need to do execute on both sides of the ball. Missed blockes, dropped balls, fumbles you name it on offense. Just plain pizz poor tackling on defense. They have to get this fixed or its only going to get worse. Play to win not play to help the other team win.

The game should have been a little closer if passes weren't dropped by the Huskers, but UTx shut the run game down.

Sad thing is I think they may have hung their whole season on this one game. If so, it could get a whole lot worse over the next several weeks.

I don't think the players or coaches put near as much emphasis on this game as the media and some fans did (I'm one of 'em-damned dropped passes!), so I don't see a huge letdown coming up. We might lose one more, but I don't see Pelini letting this group get too far off kilter...

Nice use of the word terse....I think that is Bo's middle name....

So FJJ, does this mean that Mack isn't fired? I was nervous after the last several T&R posts.
