Tommy Armstrong posts message to fans
Bowl game or not, Tommy Armstrong was not happy with the way 2015 ended.
His four-interception game prevented the Huskers from knocking off undefeated Iowa to reach six wins in the regular-season finale. The third-year starter led the B1G in interceptions, which prompted him to post a message of apology/promise to Nebraska fans for 2016.
Here’s what Armstrong posted on Instagram:
Throughout my junior year I’ve dealt with so many obstacles and challenges. The lord has a plan and through tough times he finds a way to give back to the ones who accepts the challenges for better or worse. Next year is my last year as a “Husker” and I can promise my teammates and Brothers that they will get my all. Times will get hard, times will get frustrating and times will be great but I can promise you that I will push them to another level. It’s us against the world and throughout my career I’ve realized that my brothers support me no matter what. Offseason starts now with or without a bowl game!! This season is a learning experience for not just me but for our team!! 2016 will be something special!! One last ride with my boys!!! #gbr
Armstrong will look to lead the program back from its worst season since the Bill Callahan era.
Perhaps the ugly finish to 2015 provided the fuel Armstrong and the Huskers will need to turn the program around in 2016.
