    2009 - Week 1​

    Summary/Analysis

    This was a good game to start out the year. Nebraska jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead after forcing punts on Northwestern's first 2 possessions. From there it was smooth sailing for the offense as Roy Helu Jr led the way for the Cornhuskers. Defensively, Ndamukong Suh and Barry Turner controlled the Northwestern line, combining for 10 tackles, 6 tackles for loss, and 3 sacks. Coach Hippo pulled the starters mid-way through the 3rd quarter to see how the 2nd stringers performed. Cody Green was impressive during his time on the field and the defense only gave up 3 2nd half points.

    Record:1-0 (0-0)

    Summary/Analysis

    This was a great game in the first half. Nebraska drove down the field to score with only a couple seconds left to tie the game at 21-21 heading into the break.

    Nebraska received the kickoff to start things out, but was forced to punt. From there 7 TDs were scored in the following manner: Oregon, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon. That left things at Oregon 56 - Nebraska 35 heading into the 4th. Zac Lee was forced to pass a lot, and the Oregon secondary made some good plays on the ball. The obvious issue was Jeremiah Masoli and/or the Nebraska defense. Nothing the defense did worked: zone, man, blitz. Masoli simply picked apart whatever the Nebraska D threw at him. The defense will have to figure things out and step up in a big way. A heavyweight battle with LSU and Coach Mcyork looms next week.

    Record:1-1 (0-0)

    Defense

    Barry Turner - 7 tackles, 3 sacks

    Summary/Analysis

    This game started out slow, as the first quarter only saw a 40 yard Nebraska FG scored. The second quarter started off with some excitement however. Zac Lee threw a pass that was intercepted by LSU LB Harry Coleman, then Coleman took it 23 yards for the TD, LSU 7 - Neb 3. Nebraska would answer however, driving the field and punching it in on a 14 yard scamper by Roy Helu Jr, his first of 2 TDs on the day. Nebraska forced an interception and made it into FG range as the 1st half wound to a close. Henery hit a 48 yard FG as time expired, making the score at the half Neb 13 - LSU 7.

    The Tigers received the ball and took a lesson from the band, marching it right up the field (can't remember where I've heard that one before...), LSU 14 - Neb 13. The Cornhuskers were up for the challenge however, as Helu Jr pounded in a 3 yard TD run. After scoring the TD, I clicked "A" quickly, figuring it would line me up for an extra point. However, instead I lined up in an I-formation, as Corso decided it would be smart to go for 2. It wasn't really a bad decision, but it was a little more aggressive than I would have normally called. Nonetheless, the 2-pt conversion was successful, Neb 21 - LSU 14.

    LSU made a FG with 3:09 remaining in the game to cut the lead to 4 points. Nebraska just had to run the clock out, but on a 3rd and 3 Zac Lee did his best Brett Favre impression. On a playaction rollout, Lee threw the ball straight to LSU CB Patrick Peterson, who had no problem taking it to the house, LSU 24 - Neb 21.

    So now Nebraska had 2:06 left to drive the ball down the field. After 2 big pass plays the Cornhuskers were near midfield. From there, Coach Hippo drew up some more run plays to get into field position, figuring the LSU defense would be playing the pass. When passing, Lee made sure not to throw into coverage, and worked the Cornhuksers down to the 6 yard line with no timeouts remaining. Coach Hippo wanted to take 1 shot at the end zone before settling for a game tying FG. The plan worked perfectly as Lee found TE Mike McNeill over the middle between a LSU LB and Safety. Nebraska kicked off and defended a LSU Hail Mary pass and the game was over. Nebraska 28 - LSU 24.

    Passing

    Zac Lee - 9/12 passing, 126 yards, 2 TD/0 Int

    Rushing

    Roy Helu Jr - 17 rushes, 161 yards (102 after 1st contact), 3 TD

    Defense

    Ndamukong Suh - 1 sack, Fumb Forced, Fumb Recovered

    Pierre Allen - 1 sack, Fumb Recovered for TD (19yards)

    Summary/Analysis

    Turnovers were the story of this game as the Cornhuskers forced 3 USM fumbles, all at key points in the drives. Nebraska ran the ball early and often, quickly putting up 7 points on the board. On the ensuing USM drive, Larry Asante picked off the pitch from the USM QB to RB. Nebraska took advantage of the mistake and never looked back.

    Coach Hippo pulled the starters at halftime with a huge 42-7 lead. Hippo instructed back up Cody Green to keep the ball on the ground and run the clock. Green did just that, as he never even attempted a pass all 2nd half. Nebraska had several key prospects into visit, and Coach Hippo believes they liked what they saw. Hopefully a few recruits will commit during their visit, but Coach Hippo will take full advantage of next week's bye, focusing solely on recruiting.

    Mike McNeill - 4 receptions, 65 yards, TD

    Defense

    As a team - 12 TFL, 1 sack (Suh), 0 Fumb Forced, 0 Ints

    Summary/Analysis

    In a game usually defined by turnovers, both teams played mistake-free football. For most of the day the Cornhusker defense kept the Tigers in front of them, not allowing the big play. Suh and the rest of the D-line were the driving force in stopping the Mizzou offense. When the Cornhuskers had the ball they fed Roy Helu Jr on his way to his 2nd straight game with 160+ yards and 3 TDs. Zac Lee managed the offense well and was accurate and efficient when throwing the ball.

    The game was close throughout the 1st half and the score at the break was Nebraska 21 - Mizzou 10. Nebraska received the ball in the 2nd half and managed to tack 2 TDs on the board in the 3rd quarter. The 35-10 lead allowed Coach Hippo to sit his starters for an extended amount of time for the 3rd time in 5 games. It has been great to get the back-ups some real game reps and allow the starters to rest. They definitely need it as Big 12 conference games are now upon us.

    Rushing

    Summary/Analysis

    Game ball in this one gets cut in two. One half goes to the monster that is Roy Helu Jr. He was a man in this one, 4 TDs and 151 yards on the ground. He should start picking up some good national exposure if he can keep it up throughout conference play.

    Other half of the game ball goes to the from 7 of the defense. The line anchored by Suh and Turner got enormous pressure on the TTU QB, twice knocking out Taylor Potts for short amounts of time. TTU obviously likes to throw the ball around, and we did a good job of getting in the QB's face and making them throw before they wanted to. Overall a solid game by the Cornhuskers. Next week Iowa State comes into town. Their season is in shambles after Coach Hokie left the team following a tough week 1 loss.

    I'm a n00b. How do I get the tables and charts in my posts? I would like to do summaries like yours for this OD.

    it's done using the above, minus the "*" ( I used this to show you the format of it). So put the
    Column 1 Column 2
    part first, and put =head if you want the first line to be formatted gray and different looking to set it apart. Then enter your data and create as many columns as you want using the " " which is press shift + the key above the enter key.
    An easier way is to quote somebody else's post with a table in it and just delete the other person's stuff out of it and use it as yours. Every time I make a chart I just copy a prior table I created and go from there.
    Let me know if you have any questions. It takes some messing around with to get it, but they're pretty cool once you get the hang of it. Welcome again to the league.

    P.J. Smith - 6 tackles, 2 Ints (1 returned for TD)

    Summary/Analysis

    Coach Hippo wanted to prove 2 things in this game and accomplished both by the time the clock hit zero. First he wanted to prove the offense can pass the ball effectively and stretch the defense vertically. Mission accomplished as Zac Lee had a hell of a game with 229 yards through the air, 3 TDs, and no Ints.

    The second thing Hippo wanted to prove was his defense can be very aggressive and force turnovers. No problem for the D, as they forced 6 turnovers, 2 Fumbles and 4 Ints.

    Summary/Analysis

    This game was pretty close in the 1st half, and TCU had the lead heading into the 2nd quarter. Nebraska exploded for 21 points in the 2nd however, pushing their lead to 28-17 at the half. The second half was handled by Roy Helu Jr and his back up Castille.

    This game was another statement game by Coach Hippo, again proving Zac Lee can do some serious damage if the defense puts 8 or more in the box. All four TD passes were thrown to different receivers. Next week Nebraska will host #6 Oklahoma and Coach Marcman. Hippo knows his team will have to play to their full potential to pull this one out, even with Oklahoma's starting QB and HB out for the season.

    Stupid mistakes did the Cornhuskers in against Oklahoma. Zac Lee threw 4 picks (2 pick 6's)and in general played a horrible game. Roy Helu Jr ran well against the Sooners, racking up nearly 100 yards in 1 1/2 quarters before his injury.

    The Cornhusker defense played pretty well, only giving up 1 TD (a wheel route hit dead on the money like 45 yards out) and 3 FGs.

    The Cornhuskers took out some aggression on #8 Kansas after a tough loss last week to the Sooners. In the first game after Heisman hopeful Roy Helu Jr went down to an injury, backups Quentin Castille and Lester Ward led Nebraska to victory. They combined for 176 yards on the ground and 4 TDs. Zac Lee had a decent game passing for 212 yards and 3 TDs.

    The defense played well again holding the #8 team in the nation to 25% on 3rd down conversions. The big man in the middle, Ndamukong Suh isn't racking up huge stats, but he is quite a force in the middle of the defense. Next week Nebraska will host Kansas State and Coach Hokie. This game will be the deciding factor in who will represent the Big 12 North in the championship game. I'm looking forward to a good game.

    Defense

    Summary/Analysis

    Kansas State received the kick and had no problem moving the ball on their opening drive. QB Harper ran the ball in for a TD on a 6 yard option play, 7-0 KSU. Nebraska would answer on their 1st drive, ending on a 4 yard FB dive by Kyler Reed, 7-7. Nebraska would tack on another TD in the 1st quarter, making it 14-7 Nebraska after 1.

    The second quarter was a little more kind to KSU. Nebraska had the ball in their own territory, moving it well on the ground. QB Zac Lee didn't like the play call and audibled it to a PA pass, but made the mistake of eyeing his target. KSU's SS Moore picked off the pass and took it 45 yards to the house to tie the game at 14. Both teams would add TDs, Nebraska's on a 14 yard run by Castille and KSU's on a 57 yard bomb to Snipes. The score at half, Kansas St. 21 - Nebraska 21.

    The third quarter was big for the home team. Nebraska received the ball after half and drove the field, scoring on a Reed 2 yard TD run, 28-21 Nebraska. After forcing an interception, Nebraska was able to tack on a 49 yard FG to make it a 2 score game. Castille added another score for Nebraska from the 1 yard line on a HB dive out of the goalline set. The TD run pushed the lead to 17, the largest lead of the game. Kansas St would answer again on a 49 yard pass from Harper to Brown, pulling the lead back to 10. However, Kansas St. would not score again, and Nebraska added a FG in the 4th quarter to make the final score Nebraska 41 - Kansas St 28.

    --- This was a hell of a good game. Despite the yards I gained on the ground, Hokie's defense played well. I was actually afraid to pass the ball and went into super conservative mode. I have nightmares of facing these 4-2-5 defenses, but I will get some more experience with them since all the users in the Big 12 are running with them. I give Hokie a bunch of credit for having a chance at winning despite 7 turnovers. If I had 7 turnovers, I would be lucky to be within 35 points of someone. He's a damn good player, and I look forward to our game next year at his place. I have a feeling there might be a different outcome next year.

    Next week, Nebraska travels to Boulder to take on the Buffs. If Nebraska can come away with the win, they will get a shot at revenge in the Big 12 Championship game versus an Oklahoma team that beat them 30-10 earlier in the year.


    Record: 9-2 (6-1)
    Next week: at Colorado

    Summary/Analysis

    Nebraska put this one away quick and easy. The Cornhuskers exploded for 35 points in the 2nd quarter behind the efforts of QB Zac Lee and HB Quentin Castille. Lee was very effective in this game, as Coach Hippo gave him some more freedom to make some plays for the Cornhuskers. Castille was a force on the ground, going for over 12YPC on only 12 carries.

    Coach Hippo was happy with his team's 1st half showing and decided to swap in the 3rd string players to give them a chance at some minutes on the field. HB Okafor played well, receiving the bulk of the 2nd half carries.

    The Cornhuskers will have a bye next week to relax and and regroup. Then it will be time to gameplan for the Big 12 Championship game and Oklahoma. Coach Hippo and the Cornhuskers will be the underdogs, but Hippo has promised a much better showing than the previous meeting, a 30-10 loss at home.

    Summary/Analysis

    After looking at the stats, I am thoroughly surprised I had a shot to win the game. The rushing stats look bad, but my QB had -49 yards rushing due to sacks. Still, Castille averaged 3.3 ypc which isn't good enough. The game went from OU's favor to tied the whole game. Oklahoma was up 14-7, Neb answered to tie it at 14 at the half. OU scored to make it 21-14, Neb scored to tie 21-21. OU TD to make it 28-21, Neb ties it at 28-28. OU grabs the lead with 43 seconds to go, 35-28. I just didn't have enough time to make it back down the field to tie. Here are a few highlights from the game:

    1st play of the game, Suh recovers and takes it to the house

    19 yard TD pass to tie the game at 28-28 with 3:31 left in the 4th quarter

    Chris Brown's 4yrd run to put Oklahoma up 35-28 with :43 left to go. (I actually tried to shift the line away and let Marcman score. If he would have Qb kneeled the ball I wouldn't have had a shot to tie.)

    As time expires....so close to forcing overtime.

    Well I think 8 of them came in my 2 games vs Marcman, so from there that's an average of a little over 1 per game, still not good. And you wonder why I run so much? hahaha
