1. From a Husker Zone summary, the line of the day: SI.com's Stewart Mandel said, "what a waste of an elite defense…what a joke on offense."
2. Which brings us to a quote from an Brian Neal's dad, who was an OL in the '77 win in Lincoln. If the roles had been reversed, and the Black Shirts had forced 8 TO's, the press would have been gushing about the return of the Black Shirts. But since it was ISU going +8, it was some kind of crazy fluke.
Perceptions take time to turn. In our case, it will be 4 or 5 winning seasons before we become something other than "The Baylor of the North".
Here's to turning.
