READY FOR PRIME TIME?
Well, this one throws a wet blanket on Nebraska’s Big Ten debut at home. Then again, maybe the Ohio State offense is just what the Nebraska defense needs to get some mojo back. You think ABC is second-guessing its decision to show next week’s game?
LET THE HYPE BEGIN
This was a very big deal for Wisconsin and Russell Wilson. They both showed well on the national stage. It’s hard to see anyone beating the Badgers, unless they trip at Illinois. Wilson for Heisman? He’ll probably be invited to New York. I still think Andrew Luck will be hard to beat. That could be one heck of a Rose Bowl, Wilson vs. Luck. But we’re getting way ahead, aren’t we?
PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS
There will be folks yelling at Tim Beck this week and calling for Taylor Martinez’ job. Here’s what should happen: Beck needs to identify what he wants to do. If it’s put a guy back in the pocket and attack, then find a quarterback who can do that. If Martinez is his guy, then do what No. 3 can do best. Watching this is torture.
