    - One of two things is a liability: Andrew Green or Corey Raymond’s coaching. Alfonzo Dennard will determine which.

    - On the other hand, it turns out Aaron Green is a baller. Braylon Heard, come on down!

    - That Rex guy’s pretty good, too.

    - Nebraska has approximately a 29 percent third down conversion rate over the past two games. However, they’ve scored 40-plus points in the first three contests of a season for the first time since 1995. Pass the Aleve.

    -It’s safe to say that Ameer Abdullah could score on any given return. When’s the last time that could be said about a Cornhusker? Maybe DeJuan Groce…maybe.

    - In health news, Taylor Martinez finally decides to stop shaving years off of his life by sliding.

    - Mathew May’s heads up play deserves an extra tip of the cap. That sort of play will win you games that you probably should lose.

    - Chris Polk ran for a ton of yardage and it came as no surprise. Not necessarily because the interior defensive line got worked over, but he’s a damn good back. The line issue may want to be resolved before the Huskers hit Madison in black, though.

    - Brett Maher shanks a punt, but redeems himself by making one of the better tackles of the afternoon.

    - Stafford and David are tackling machines, but again none were for a loss.

    - Seven times the Cornhuskers entered the red zone and seven times they scored. That’s a bingo.

    - Is this the first college football game in recent memory where a ref needs to be worried about getting fined by the FCC over an issue with the game clock?

    -The bottom line's three wins and no losses. It’d be a lie to say after being up 44-17 that the final score of the rubber match against Washington wasn’t disappointing, though.

    A daily dose of what's new in Husker Nation from Monday through Friday:

    - Taylor Martinez has been paying the price for his recent fumbling

    - Alfonzo Dennard might play Saturday, but is still questionable

    - There won't be any special efforts to cram extra running backs in the game against Washington

    - The defense looks to rebound against a stout test in Washington's Chris Polk

    - Kenny Bell is already making a big impression on the NU wide receivers corps

    - "Pack Your Black" for Madison when NU travels to take on the Badgers

    NEBRASKA FOOTBALL: Knee-Jerk Reactions - Fresno State

    - For those of you making Tim Beck/Shawn Watson comparisons, knock it off. Watson would’ve had Martinez throwing slant routes across the middle and handing the ball off to Burkhead in the second half as Nebraska either won by a point or lost.

    - Martinez clearly had his software from OSU 2010 reloaded at halftime, though.

    - Ameer Abdullah: So fast that he can cramp up at the opponent's 45 yard line and still can't be caught.

    - 41 tackles by Will Compton, Lavonte David and Daimion Stafford sounds impressive. Not so much when noted that none caused Fresno State to lose yardage.

    - Anxiously waiting for someone to argue why Jamal Turner, Kenny Bell, Quincy Enunwa and Kyler Reed shouldn’t be Nebraska’s main receivers. Kinnie’s close, but he’s battling his quarterback’s mechanics.

    - Guessing no Heard or Green was because of shift in offensive philosophy in the second half.

    - Derek Carr is much more talented than his brother and was good prep for Dan Persa/Northwestern.

    - Fresno gained almost five yards per rush. Forget Wisky for a moment and remember Washington’s Chris Polk.

    - Brett Maher nailed a 57-yarder in warm-ups. Was somewhat disappointed he didn’t kick that 62-yarder. Also wondering if Alex Henery wasn’t.

    - Burkhead leaping over a goal line pile only lends more credence to his "Superman" nickname. That and his Kryptonian birth certificate.

    - A 33-percent third down conversion rate doesn’t speak well about the entire offensive staff.

    - On the next episode of Ghost Hunters: Courtney Osborne and P.J. Smith.

    - Daimion Stafford's going to be absolutely beastly once he hits midseason form.

    - Filed under “Kinda Funny”: Memorial Stadium erupting in cheers for Bo Pelini chewing a ref out.
