It was pathetic and embarrassing. Our QB on sideline laughing was the last straw.

If you are OK with these kind of losses then you must still be a 'young' Husker fan. Us 'old' Husker fans find this very painful to even think about.

Seems like we're right back where Bo Pelini left us, 9-3 with 2 blowout losses

Iowa should never win by 30 points. This game can make or break a season, and it did.

I know we had/have depth issues, just the fact we have 9 walk ons on scholarship proves that. but I was really hoping the blowouts were done. next year will tell us a lot about this staff.

I just do not understand how you can get up for such a big game and lay an egg like they did.

we were out coached AGAIN to look like fools. Langsdork should be ashamed he had TA throwing all over the place, long passes to no where. I feel for the kids they are doing as instructed so that should be a very big clue......good luck on recuiting. WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO RUN. BAD BAD COACHING

Really??? Riley and his pitiful staff took the student athletes to Iowa City and let them get beat like a drum. losing by 30 points to anyone is unacceptable. Riley, Banker and Langsdorf did not even look like they wanted to be their. I feel for the student athlete and John Parella.

this loss will be long lasting, not just because of the wins and losses, but the one step forward and in this case three back loss will really be hard to overcome any time soon.........time to see what Riley is made of......

Losing to ANYONE by that margin is completely unacceptable, however it seems as though that has become a part of our new identity. I used to get really angry when we'd lose by that margin, but now I expect it to happen. Unfortunately NU isn't committed to winning.

Pitiful. Very little progress shown during Riley's first two years as coach.

Clear lack of effort on both sides of the ball. Even more maddening was why Fyfe was not put into the game given TA's obvious struggles. But hey at least Mike Riley axed coach Reed...

Because we're better than that. I don't like to lose but if it was 17 - 14 I wouldn't feel like I do.

Good teams do not regress so dramatically, they get better as the season wears on. There are really no excuses for this debacle.

They are not a more talented team. This hurts recruiting.

our style of play on the offensive line just does not "fit" B1G football. We are just demolished along the line. We were never even in the game.

Was thinking a win was 50-50 or less going into the game, the disappointment came with the margin of victory.

It seems like our A.D. settled for a so so coach who has a very mediocre reputation, so I guess when I look at the numbers of history I am not too surprised.

If I look at the first three quarters of most of this years games I probably could have seen this loss coming. I am disappointed that this is what the huskers have been allowed to devolve into. The lack of dedication the university has to the football program is disheartening.

Tommie's injury limited his effectiveness both in running and in his passing accuracy. Just a few connections in the passing game would have changed the complexion of the game. The year was a great turn around and I'm looking forward to more progress next year.

It has become the norm, losing a meaningful game, so I expected it.

It's at home and I think we will be understanding our new system and coaches by then.

Purdue is deeper into the first season of a new staff. And it is at home where the crowd is more of a factor.

Later in the season. The mini game is #1 and we'll have some kinks to work out. BUT I think we win both. With good coaching we'll finally put Mini in our rear view mirror.

I thought we did really well with the defensive and offensive line, plus the most in-state recruits since 98!

In short order, Coach Rhule and staff put together a top 30 class. That's a great result for the short time they had to work with. My only pain point was losing Earnest Hausman to Michigan through the transfer portal.
