I was up until after midnight here in Belgrade watching the disaster unfold on my laptop screen. That old feeling that I had felt so many times during my childhood crept back into my chest. My mind ran these thoughts over and over, “They’re going to choke in the 4th quarter. They can’t close the deal.”
And so it was.
The defense missed some big plays and offensive penalties brought the Huskers to defeat themselves. However, the team seems to be on the right path. There’s still hope for the rest of the season and I think that they can still be contenders. The key is this: execution, execution, execution.
I’ll be waiting to see if they get the message.
