The Nebraska Cornhookers once again went a game winless to open their 2022 season, and many were eager to take a shot at the low-hanging fruit.
Nebraska lost to Northwestern 31-28, giving up 14 unanswered points and falling victim to a freak onside kick decision in the 28-17 third quarter. The loss dropped coach Scott Frost to 5-21 in the game and raised questions about his progress — or lack thereof — during his tenure.
It also meant that Nebraska was absolutely dragged on social media. The cruelest comment may have come from the Big Sky Summit’s official Twitter account. When one user suggested the FCS conference might be a better home for the Cornhawks, the Big Sky suggested they weren’t interested.
That’s about where Nebraska’s reputation lies. Even FCS leagues feel comfortable playing jokes at their expense. It is hard to blame him for the problems the team has faced.
The only good news for Nebraska fans is that they got a lot of free beer in attendance. Other than that, it was quite a disaster.
