Same old Nebraska? Fans, media weigh in on Huskers' start vs. Oklahoma
Nebraska fans were able to enjoy about 5 minutes of Saturday’s Week 3 matchup against No. 6 Oklahoma.
The Huskers saw Casey Thompson connect with Trey Palmer for a long score to give Nebraska a 7-0 lead before the bottom fell out. Oklahoma rallied and now leads 28-7 with plenty of time remaining in the second quarter.
Nobody expected Nebraska to win this game, but it’s not too much to expect them to actually compete.
Fans and critics reacted to Nebraska’s rough start against the No. 6 team in the nation Saturday afternoon.
Update from Lincoln: doesn’t matter who the coach is, that’s a bad team being trucked by a much better team.

I think it’s good if Nebraska loses by a million. That way they can’t stop thinking they’re good.

The fall of The Huskers was fun for a few years but enough is enough. This has become sad. College Football is better when Nebraska is competitive.

I knew I wasn’t expecting much from Nebraska but was expecting something.
Probably not a great move to fire the coach before a key game.

I think Nebraska might stink this year

Man, the action Nebraska got on the spread this week made no sense and it’s going that way so far

I think we are learning two things from this game, first Oklahoma is still very good at football and might make a run for the playoff. And second Nebraska is BAD, even without Scott Frost #OUvsNEB

Imagine having to come back to be honored at a Nebraska game only to see how the program has been trashed by terrible athletic program decisions.
