2018 Episode 13: To Go or Not To Go? Overtime loss at Northwestern

October 14, 2018

To go or not to go? That is the big question following Nebraska's overtime loss to Northwestern last Saturday. On this edition of the Husker Doc Talk Podcast presented by the Rimington Trophy, Dr. Rob Zatechka and Travis Justice carry on their Twitter spat on what play the Huskers should have run on 4th and 1 in overtime. Do you kick the field goal? Or do you put Adrian Martinez under center instead of the shotgun?

On the @DocTalkSports twitter page, a fan poll asked what you would do with hindsight being 20/20.

  • 47% Kick Field Goal
  • 35% QB Under Center
  • 18% QB In The Shotgun

Let's not forget the fact that besides not getting the job done offensively in overtime, the Husker failed on defense as well, letting Northwestern go 99 yards on its last possession in regulation. In short, there's plenty of blame to spread around.
