Things started out well for the Cornhuskers on Saturday against the Oklahoma Sooners as they marched down the field and scored on their first possession. However, from that point on, it was all OU. Oklahoma would end up winning 49-14 in one of the most lopsided scores in the history of the series. This loss also marks Nebraska’s 19th-straight loss against a top 25 team.
Interim head coach Mickey Joseph blamed himself for the loss.
“It’s not my kids’ fault, not my assistant coaches’ fault, this is on me,” he said. “I’ve got to accept responsibility for it, and I have. We’re going to get better next week. We’ve got eight games left, and we’re going to get ready to win some games.”
That’s not going to sit well with Cornhuskers fans at all who were not pleased by their team’s play.
Could have saved themselves 7.5 million and let Frost lose this and another.

Who cares? A loss is a loss. Nebraska does not want to lose.

if I wanted to watch things pile up uselessly for Nebraska I'd be sitting in on a Senate agricultural subsidies appropriations subcommittee

Saturday’s game was a hard one to watch if you were a Huskers fan. And if you look at their schedule, it’s probably not going to get any better in 2022.
