Big Red Bleeds Red in Lincoln

The Nebraska Cornhuskers were embarrassed today on their home turf in Lincoln, losing to the Oklahoma State Cowboys by a whopping 31-point margin, 45-14. It was the worst home loss for the Huskers in nearly half a century.

For Husker fans, who are among the most avid and faithful in the nation, it was a humiliation. It was the 287th consecutive sellout in Memorial Stadium, and it was homecoming. The Huskers didn’t score in the first half, trailing 38-0 at halftime.

Nebraska slipped to 4-3 overall and 1-2 in the Big 12 with the loss, while Oklahoma State improved to 4-3 and 2-1.

During the post-game press conference, Bill Callahan, who is an unacceptable-in-Lincoln 25-18 in his four years, did not seem to display a very strong sense of urgency.

I think that is something he needs to display … rather fast … while he still can.
