Mike Riley continues to show people why he was not the right choice for Nebraska. The Cornhuskers played undefeated Iowa and had chances to be in the game to the end, but bad decisions by the coaching staff did not help Nebraska. It’s true the players made some bad plays, but in the end it’s the coaches whom call the plays. Let’s look at another disappointing loss by the Cornhuskers.
Tommy Armstrong threw four interceptions and that did not help the cause at all. He needs to make much better decisions and that starts with better play calling. You just cannot call plays that don’t utilize Armstrong’s talent and that is what happen in this game. Stanley Morgan Jr seems like a guy that has a bright future for the Cornhuskers.
Play calling though was horrible. When you have fourth and one years to go a fade in the end zone was not the proper call. Armstrong has speed we need to use his running ability more, but the coaching staff does not seem to want to go that route.
The Iowa loss is just like most of the losses this season under Riley bad coaching and poor decisions. I was disappointed all season in some of Riley’s decisions. I hope Nebraska only gives him one more season to get it together. If another season like this appears it’s tome to show him the door. This season was a total embarrassment and most likely no bowl game either. Nebraska Cornhuskers fans deserve a lot better than this.
