yeah, it's late. so was the Husker wakeup call this season for them to start playing well. oh well.
generally, Neb got outplayed most of the game by Iowa. SF said after the game that Iowa was bigger and stronger than they were, and that was evident during the game.
the only thing that kept this close was poor Iowa coaching.
anyway, Iowa players have had the same coaches (including S&C) for their entire careers, and that makes a difference.
AM didn't play poorly outside of that one ill advised pass that got intercepted, and he made some nice plays with his arm and his legs.
Oz probably should have gotten more carries, but I understand not wanting to run a lot against a defense solid against the run (MSU game Neb would have aired it out more if not for the wind). Mo Washington had a nice day receiving, nice to see the coaching staff work him into the game plan more with JD out.
Morgan had a nice game and broke a bunch of season and career records in the process. if JD stays healthy next season he might break them all
OL didn't play that great, and our young OTs got exposed against solid DE end rushers.
DL didn't even hold their own, constantly getting pushed around.
LB played poorly. again.
secondary was also a disappointment, particularly playing 20 yards off of Iowa's best player at TE (not Fant) to give up the 10 yard completion on 4th and 8 that allowed them to kick the game winning field goal.
overall, the kids played hard but played a better and more experienced team and it showed.
on to next year.
