I attended the UW NU game Saturday and came away really excited about how this season could turn out. First off the pokes offense appears to be as advertised. Fast paced and with a top notch QB at the helm these guys could be dangerous. In fact in the airport at Lincoln a cop came up to us and said that he thought Brett Smith was the best athlete on the field, from either team. I left the game thinking the exact same thing. I feel when we get into a game against a team with less talent than Nebraska (Idaho for example); the pace the offense moves at will be even faster. A few interesting things I noticed that were not really mentioned in other articles I have read were 1.) In the second half there was a play where Taylor Martinez ran for a first down, he was pushed out of bounds in the process. Both of these events (first down and obviously out of bounds) should stop the game clock. However the clock kept on going taking at least 30 seconds off the game clock. That amount of time could have been the difference at the end of the game. 2.) I was mind boggled at the holding call on our last drive where Brett ran for a first down on a quick snap keeper. He ran around in the back field all game, yet the play with the holding call happened on a play so fast I doubt that there would have been time to hold at all. It was fun to see how quiet the record sell out crowd was at the end of the game. You would have thought that the pokes won with the Nebraska fans somber exit from the stadium. In fact many NU fans stood and clapped for the cowboys as they left the field.
