It was the worst of times, it was the best of times.

If I remember right, it was Charles Dickens in A Tale of two Cities who wrote, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times”. After watching the game last night I have to agree. It was the worst of times, it was the best of time.

Nebraska played three quarters of the “worst of times” as far as offensive football that I have seen for some time. I feel sorry for those fans that gave up after the third quarter and turned the TV off. They missed the “best of times” and the best offense of the game. It was as if someone flipped a switch or replaced the whole offensive team. WOW!!

I think that it is time for Bo to hand out the Blackshirts. The defense earned them last night. They never gave up and kept the team in the game even when the offense was just spinning it’s wheels. The in the forth quarter when they should have been dead tired, they kicked it up a notch making plays that lead to two short field touchdowns.
