10.29.2009 / The Huskers Battle the Bears. Posting by Greg Sharpe, Voice of the Huskers

Some games defy explanation. The game Saturday against Iowa State was one of those. Eight turnovers can encompass an entire month of football games. The Huskers had them all in one game. For an offense that was struggling, the turnover bug is not what the doctor ordered. But it is what it is.

"Bo Pelini is saying again this week that the coaches are looking at their options on offense."

This week NU travels into the heart of Texas to face the Baylor Bears. Baylor is another team that is offensively challenged. Last week they only managed seven points against Oklahoma State and the week before that only 10 against Iowa State, but Baylor have their reasons. Talented quarterback Robert Griffin, a world class hurdler is out for the year with a knee injury. The Bears have alternated between senior Blake Szymanski and freshman Nick Florence. Much like Iowa State this is an offense that shouldn’t give the Huskers too many problems.

The Bears have some talented defensive players including pre-season all conference selections in linebacker Joe Pawelek and safety Jordan Lake. Both players were very active last year in Lincoln and they will be around the football all day long. Bo Pelini is saying again this week that the coaches are looking at their options on offense. Whether that means a change at quarterback remains to be seen, but this much is certain the offense needs a jolt to get this team ready for the final stretch of the year. Let’s hope that jolt starts this week. 

Go Big Red!
