The combination of opponent (bad), margin of defeat (bad) and general aesthetics (minus-5 turnover margin?) puts Saturday’s loss in exclusive company. These are the contenders for worst Husker loss since the woeful Bill Jennings era.
If the Rewind told you the Huskers could hang in there against Iowa, would you believe it? Well, they can. But NU’s coaches better have the kind of week they should have had last week. Nothing’s easy in the Big Ten.
