Let's start with one thing. Mental lapses. Outside of mental lapses, the Badgers totally humiliated the Cornhuskers. They had no answer for our running game, and outside of some real dumb decisions on Hornibrook's part, the passing game was decent. The one long TD pass by Nebraska was strictly a mental lapse, nothing more. Rest assured, this defensive secondary is one of the best in the nation. They broke up passes with defensive plays repeatedly over the course of the game, with officials who would blow the whistle on anything. In fact, Millen mentioned, during the broadcast, that they were a little "whistle happy." Ergo, the reason, during the game, of not showing some of those nit pick replays of holding that normally wouldn't be called. Hornibrook scared the bejeebers out of me with his outside throws. The kid has to get it through his head that defenders can drive on the ball, and get to it, before the receivers. On three occasions he threw the ball right to the defenders, by not having a clue where his receiver really was really located. Fortunately, only one ended up an INT, and it was bad - a pick six. Not acceptable at all. He needs to have better peripheal vision, and sense defenders are closing on the play. He tends to throw the ball a little late. At this point, our offense is really a running offense, with passing to keep teams honest. Our passing game needs to step up, so we can come from behind against a decent team, if needed. We have to stop teams from having the luxury of playing 8 or 9 in the box to stop our ground game. It's going to bite us in the butt if we don't. What impresses me most is how well coached up the Badgers defense is when they come out of the tunnel to start the second half. So far, it's been amazing, but can it continue against even tougher opposition? Remember, this was one heckuva test for the Badgers. Nebraska is as tough as they get at home, and at night, they're even more of a challenge. What the Badgers did last night should not be taken lightly. They went into what was a real challenge, and came away with a W.
