I have a suggestion for a new motivational strategy for Bo Pelini. Before the game starts, just spot the opposing team two touchdowns. Seems to work like a charm.

For the third game this year, Nebraska overcame a double-digit second-half deficit, this time knocking off Michigan State in East Lansing 28-24 on a touchdown pass from Taylor Martinez to Jamal Turner with six seconds left.

In a game where it appeared more than once that Nebraska was destined to lose (and which bore eerie similarities to the officiating during Nebraska's last visit to College Station), once again, this year's NU squad showed the intestinal fortitude to stay alive and outlast the competition.

It's not entirely certain if the collective stomach of the Children of the Corn can take much more, however.

So, let's take a look at each of the starters and see how they performed, to get a better idea of what happened on Saturday. As always, the grades will be in a soccer-style 1-10 system.
