Last year, Husker fans everywhere were excited.  Out with the old, in with the new was what a lot of people were saying.  Funny when it was out with the new, back in with the old, restoring the old traditions that Bill Callahan removed.

Last year, Bo Pelini came in, and some wondered if he was red in the face because he was outside so much, or because he yelled all the time.

Then the first two games confirmed everybodies hope.  Winning our first three games a combined 120-42, everybody had a top-25 thoughts heading into week 4, against a V-Tech squad that was making some very worried.

In the end, it all came down to Ganz and his amazing offense, against VT and their greedy defense in one last attempt at a hook and ladder.  Tech came out on top, and many a husker fan (my self included) lost their appetite for several days.

In 2009, there is a different story.  Their defense is back just as last year with DE Worilds leading the crew, and on offense, Tyrod Taylor sets an apparent with a real freshman being the only plausible backup.

For Nebraska, our defense got better, with Ndamukong Suh leading the Defense at DT, and if anyone doubts him, watch him on youtube against Clemson.  Almost won the game by himself.  On Offense, we lost our starting QB, RB, and two Recievers. 

In the end, it will be a close game, and if the blackshirts can force Taylor to pass, the game might be ours.
