Mark Whipple, Nebraska OC, encouraged by recent perseverance of Huskers
Mark Whipple is pleased with the recent work from his unit after back-to-back wins.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers have had a rough season so far this year, but they did have a bright spot Saturday in their come-from-behind victory over Rutgers.
Rutgers was ahead at one point 13-0 but the Cornhuskers would take a 14-13 lead and hold on for the comeback win.
The OC of the Cornhuskers was proud of his team’s comeback and was impressed by their perseverance.
Instead of feeling sorry for themselves and falling back into bad habits, the team pulled itself together for the victory.
“There wasn’t, ‘woe is me. They all believed,” Whipple said. “That’s a credit to Mickey and all the guys.”

In the past the Cornhuskers, under former head coach Scott Frost, would find themselves in situations like this and would fall apart in the end, but not this time.
Maybe Saturday’s win against the Scarlett Knights will put this team back on track and give them the confidence they need to make a bowl game at the end of the season.
