matt coatney during his broadcast stated that this was not unexpected from michigan. coach williams and the huskers prepared for this earlier. wasn't really a shock this squad still had a "clunker" left in them. what was a little surprising is how bad the defensive effort was in that first half, especially first quarter. some of the passing was a head scratcher--------my gosh, riley, what were you seeing? defender glued to one side of jess and the other one practically standing right smack in front of jess and you try to throw it into jess? she didn't try a lob pass, a bounce pass? don't mean to pick on riley, because there were plenty of examples from other players. just one that really stuck out to me. anyway, huskers just dug themselves waaaaaaaay to big a hole right from the start. clawed back to get it to 15 and whitish took a 3---in and out. even if that went in, i didn't see the huskers pulling a rabbit out of the hat, but, maybe they could have made the score a little more respectable.
one other thing that i think really made a difference, nicea had maybe one of her worst games. ended up, this was just a season the huskers couldn't afford that to happen.
for allie's and esther's sake, hope we don't see that on senior day. going to be tough, though.
