Fans react to Mickey Joseph's rough debut as Nebraska interim HC
Mickey Joseph’s first game as Nebraska’s interim head coach is going about how everyone expected.
There’s no way anybody really expected the Huskers to legitimately compete with the No. 6 team in the country in his first true test. Perhaps his best case scenario was simply staying afloat.
Unfortunately, the Huskers are not staying afloat. Nebraska is down 35-7 heading into the halftime break.
Nebraska scored on the opening drive, seeing Casey Thompson connect with Trey Palmer for a 7-0 score. Around then is when things started to go downhill.
Oklahoma rattled off 35 straight following Nebraska’s opening drive score. The Sooners have gotten it done on the ground, rushing for 3 touchdowns by 3 separate players.
Social media reacted to Mickey Joseph’s first start as head coach of the Cornhuskers Saturday afternoon.
How much is the buyout for Mickey Joseph?

Poor Mickey Joseph. This team is so bad that he won’t get the opportunity to be head coach. If I were him I wouldn’t want to anyway

I’d like to apologize for my Nebraska pick. I loved the Mickey Joseph story. I believed. Turns out they still stink. I’m sorry. #Accountability
