Wisconsin 48 Nebraska 17

Russell Wilson is the real deal.  Expect him to be the front runner in the Heisman race after spanking Nebraska this week.  Wisconsin's offense will be very difficult for any defense to stop.  Their defense might not be super, but it's good enough to keep them undefeated in the regular season.

Tonight's game exposed Nebraska in more ways than one.  Defensively they're really bad.  Even when they put pressure on the ball, they're lacking the ability to make tackles.  The corners and safeties aren't good enough to cover top receivers and easily get beat because of blown assignments.  Offensively, the play calling has to be much better and someone needs to challenge Martinez for the starting job.

More to come....

Thanks for checking out Red vs Red

  1. Wisconsin certainly did a number on Nebraska and showed that the poor performance from Nebraska's defense in the first 4 games was not an aberration. I wouldn't get overly hyped about it and suggest Wisconsin is ready for the SEC teams like Alabama or LSU - the speed and strength of those two defenses are NFL worthy.

    I will give R. Wilson his due -- he was very good and the only Husker capable of tackling him was L.David. Nebraska's d-lineman looked slow and were also overpowered by Wisconsin's massive offensive line. Nebraska's DBs were abysmal and that has been a problem all season. The Huskers are too young and the talent level seems to have been over hyped. Jared Crick looks like he is more of complimentary DT, rather than a lead dog. He was much more effective next to N.Suh than he has been the last two years as Suh's heir.


Please be respectful. Thank you.
