If I were a Nebraska fan I'd be really upset with Bo

If Tyler Martinez is not allowed onto the field in the second half then Nebraska leaves the Big XII as champions. I have no idea why, when it was painfully obvious that Martinez (a) has feet but no brains and (b) thanks to injuries didn't even have feet tonight...still Pellini left him in to throw/fumble/hang-onto-the-ball-until-sacked-out-of-even-Henery's-godlike-range the game away. The only Nebraska touchdown pass of the game? Thrown by Burkhead (who, to be fair, did also commit a critical fumble). And I wish I could find stats on Nebraska's yards-per-snap with Martinez at quarterback vs. yards-per-snap in the Wildcat.

Absolutely mystifying. But, speaking not only for myself but also for everybody associated with the Big XII: thanks, Bo, from the bottom of our collective heart, for depriving your whiny fans a chance to brag about leaving with a Big XII championship, by your bull-headed insistence on sticking to a hopelessly flawed offensive game plan to the bitter end. Now don't let the door hit you as you leave. Oh, and by the way, please do us a favor and go undefeated in Big Ten play for about the next decade so that the Big Ten will maybe get over itself a bit. It would be very satisfying to see the Big Ten get dominated by a team that went 0-for-the-century in the Big XII title hunt.
