Why doesn't my quote button work???

mdot, thanks for educating me about Spurrier.  :67:
Yeah, let’s pretend that was the reason Spurrier quit Florida, when the real reason is very simple: 

he’s an ego maniac that wanted to prove himself at the highest level there is and he was offered by far the biggest contract in NFL history at the time.

Obviously, for me, the process in which to quote a post isn't working properly.  Thank you for motivating me to take the time to make this post.  FFS

To nitpick on Miami...
even worse than the BC game, they only beat VT by 2.  The mighty Canes almost lost a game in which the opposing QB's line was:
4 comp in 16 att for 81 yards, 0 TD and 4 INT.  


Looking over box scores for Miami that year, boy, McGahee and Gore must've not had any grasp of the offense or something.  Portis was getting ALL the carries in close games.  Maybe they fumbled too much in practice, idk.

I don’t think the committee has closely followed the AP poll.  If anything, I think the AP has tried to follow the CFP once the rankings are released.

This. I'm sure we can dig up the evidence, but I had read somewhere that the biggest shake ups to the AP is week 2, and the week after CFP is announced.

What I remember about that game in Boulder was that through the 90s, Colorado had lost to Nebraska in just about every conceivable way there was to lose a football game. All of that karma was spectacularly cashed in on that fateful afternoon.

You lawyers that are here know the value of a good closing argument. Allowing Colorado to rush for 380 yards and 7 TDs is not a good closing argument.

Chris Brown just scored again, BTW.

I wonder if that was an old-school Pro-Style thing. Like they believed you needed one tailback. I think McGahee hurt his knee, but Gore appears to have won conference rookie of the year.

As for the spots to nitpick. That schedule obviously meant dominance meant murdering everyone. I wonder if that was just a case of, there will be a close game somewhere. Maybe that hurts the all-time case.

2000 NU 34 - CU 32

Josh Brown’s 29-yard field goal as time expired lifted Nebraska to a 34-32 win over Colorado in a game that saw four lead changes in the fourth quarter, two of them in the final minute.

The Huskers drove 47 yards in six plays to set up Brown’s kick after CU had taken the lead with a touchdown and two-point conversion with 47 seconds left.


1999 NU 33 - CU 30

By the slightest of margins, No. 3 Nebraska remained alive in the national championship race.

Colorado’s Jeremy Aldrich missed a 34-yard field goal on the final play of regulation and Nebraska took advantage in overtime as quarterback Eric Crouch dived in from one yard for a 33-30 victory.

1998 NU 16 - CU 14

Lincoln-- Nebraska rode a strong defensive effort and the foot of senior place-kicker Kris Brown to a 16-14 victory over Colorado, extending the Huskers’ streak of nine-win seasons to an NCAA- record 30 years.

The Husker defense turned in one of its best performances of the season, sacking CU quarterback Mike Moschetti six times and forcing three CU turnovers, leading to 10 of the Huskers' 16 points.

1997 NU 27 - CU 24

BOULDER, Colo. -- Looking for a lopsided win to impress the pollsters, Nebraska was lucky to win at all.

Ahman Green rushed for 202 yards and two touchdowns and No. 2 Nebraska survived a fourth-quarter scare to keep its national championship hopes alive with a 27-24 victory over Colorado on Friday.

1996 NU 17 - CU 12

NU Coach Tom Osborne said that the longer the Huskers’ game went, the more he wondered if 18-point underdog Colorado was about to pull an upset.

“I wasn’t sure we were going to win in the second half,” he said. “It was nerve wracking. But our defense did a great job of holding us in there.”

Nebraska, which led 17-6 at halftime, fumbled the ball away three times in the second half and had to punt on five other possessions in the final 30 minutes.

The Huskers also were slowed offensively by two injuries at I-back and six illegal procedure penalties.

Meanwhile, Colorado began applying pressure. Sophomore Jeremy Aldrich, who had never kicked a college field goal before Friday, drilled his third of the game with 7:57 left in the third quarter to cut Nebraska’s lead to 17-9.

With 8:46 left in the game, after Colorado completed passes of 51 and 33 yards on the same drive but couldn’t get into the end zone, Aldrich kicked a fourth field goal to make the score 17-12.

A minute later, Husker quarterback Scott Frost was blindsided while trying to pass. He fumbled and CU linebacker Matt Russell recovered at the NU 24.

But on second-and-seven from the 21, Husker cornerback Michael Booker deflected Colorado quarterback Koy Detmer’s pass into the hands of strongside linebacker Jamel Williams.

NU’s offense went three downs and out. Colorado then drove from its own 44 to the Nebraska 29, but faced fourth-and-11. Detmer dropped back to throw, but a blitzing Williams forced an incomplete pass to give the Huskers the ball back with 2:53 to play.

1995 NU 44 - CU 21

Wasn't close

1994 NU 24 - CU 7

Wasn't close

1993 NU 21 - CU 17

The No. 6/4 (AP/coaches) Huskers jumped out to a 21-3 lead, then turned the game over to the Blackshirts, who provided a gutsy defensive stand to guide Nebraska to a 21-17 win over the No. 18/20 Colorado Buffaloes on a cold day in Boulder. It was NU's second road win over a ranked team on the season.

1992 NU 52 - CU 7

1991 NU 19 - CU 19 tie

Colorado free safety Greg Thomas leaped into the air and, accompanied by a barrage of snowballs, blocked Byron Bennett's attempt to win the game for Nebraska with a 41-yard field-goal on the last play of the game.

And, when the ball rolled out of bounds as time ran out, Nebraska and Colorado had finished in a 19-19 deadlock in their Big Eight showdown at the Buffaloes' frozen Folsom Field

It would have been fun to see a real QB face the '01 Miami defense.  Opposing QBs that season threw 5 TDs and 27 INTs.  Sickkkkkk.

That sounds impossible, not that I dispute your accuracy.

Well when you start two 1st round CBs and a HOF Safety, it makes it easier.

Looking at it, 4 teams didn't score a TD, so there's zero on the plus side.  I know vs Syracuse, they had a INT.  As previously stated, 0 TD, 4 INT vs VT. 


I can do a game-by-game when I get home tonight, but in looking around a little at lunchtime, I learned Ken Dorsey didn't get sacked until the 7th game of the season.

It's like the more you look, the more unbelievable they are.  What I'm curious to see is of those 5 TD allowed and 27 INTs, how many were the starters responsible for vs. garbage time.  A beefy percentage of their season was garbage time....
