08:16 AM ET 12.27 | For most of the nation, Nebraska vs. Georgia and the Capital One Bowl will serve as little more than an appetizer on the bowl menu. Nebraska, however, isn't most of the nation. Don't try to tell me the game means nothing to dear ol' NU and its passionate fans, because it means plenty. ... There's a perception [Bo Pelini's] program in stuck in neutral. But [a 70-31 loss to Wisconsin] threw the thing into reverse, at least temporarily, such was the defeat's sudden impact. ... The healing process began once Nebraska settled into bowl practices. Asked about the potential for a hangover, [offensive coordinator Tim Beck] said, "If we have a hangover against Georgia, it's going to get ugly."

Mark Richt is losing control of Nebraska's program

Bo's going to borrow Mark's frying pan. There may be an exchange of recipes.

We are doing fine in the Big 10. Second year and we made it to the C.G. And we did'nt think it would be easier we came because of $$$$$$$$$$ and it made more and it was a better fit for us because of location.
What needs to happen is we either get the talent to play the two gap system or Bo does what a lot of people are saying, give the defense to a D.C. and be the C.E.O. of Husker football.
Nebraska is going to be just fine, the crazy thing is we win 9-10 games a season and people think we are in trouble. Was the same when I was there 78-82 very lofty expectations.

Beck is right..It will be UGLY!!! Ugly as Bo..

I am a Husker fan but we have no shot at the dogs. They will win by at least 30 points.

It is a joke. Get that sarcasm meter checked out.

Richt is known to have some off season issues. It prompts the UGA faithful to say/post things like "Richt is losing control of the program", the likelihood of that sentiment increases with more losses.

Nope, I hear some changes about to be made. If we get blown out by Georgia those changes will be upon us quick.
We have a good looking class coming in next year.

Thx but we are not top 5 team. I think we are a yr away from big things, but our D would not have held up against another top 5 team. IMO
