What the hell happened in 2012?
During this sports funk I tend to watch old games. Watched the 2012 opener at Nebraska. That team wasn't nearly as bad as the record. The quarterback who started had talent. Defense played well against a good Nebraska club.

Anybody but buttermilk would have won 6-7 games minimum.

Unfortunately though buttermilk was in charge that year

Everyone knows we had enough talent to go to a bowl game that year...but it doesn't matter how much talent you have when you've got a senile old man as the head coach.

Funny, I was just looking at some old box scores/recaps/quotes from that season this morning.

I knew we were screwed after the FTTT loss vs ECU.

Another thing was that was our best home schedule in recent memory. Louisville, Boise, Marshall and ECU. Could have been a pretty fun season with a halfway competent coach.

Those guys were arguable more physical than last year's squad.

That season alone probably cost the university more in lost revenue that anything else in the past 50 years.

I remember that well. I remember being surprised we pulled the plug on our QB when we did in that game. That coaching staff was a joke.

EJ on that first Nebraska game: "Well, I knew going into halftime down 28-7 we weren't going to win so I decided to play a bunch of freshman I had just recruited and burn a bunch of red-shirts"

It really is amazing when you look at the amount of talent we had on that team:

Jalen Richard, Desmond Johnson, Kendrick Hardy, Lampley, Hester, Triplett, Briggs, DJ Thompson, Jamie Collins, Khyri Thornton, Rakeem Nunez, Emmanuel Johnson, Jacorius Cotton, Oliver Bates, Deron Wilson, Kalan Reed......it's absolutely unreal how Elloss Johnson f***ed that up.
