We all know that Hawk can make up for his haphazard 2nd half 4th down call in a hurry on Friday. We all are in need of a cathartic victory, especially one over the Cornholes. It's been too long since Chris Brown was picking corn from the bottom of his cleats after a 5-touchdown beatdown. Hawk's has the foundation fine recruiting class, especially with D. Scott leaning in our direction. With a victory and bowl game, it would be a resoundingly sweet victory for the future of our program. We need Wheatley to start. I'm hoping that he can get back to tip-top shape, although its unlikely. His absence in the backfield, along with the jarring hits of Ryan Walters, hurt us. After seeing our secondary picked apart by a lackluster Cyclone team, I'm feeling a bit uneasy after the Cornholers got things rolling by hanging 72 on KSJuco. I think we will see some unsung heroes in this one. A key open field tackle by Boulderite Jeff Smart, a few pass rushes from the outside by Maurice Lucas -- who is ripe for a breakout game. Native Coloradans, Polumbus, Dusty, Eberhart will show up for their senior day in a big way and their passion rubs off on flashly newcomers like Josh "J-Fly" Smith. Huge games from all these guys. Dizon will come up the bigger than ever and solidify his rightful place as a NFL first-rounder. As a side note, do the cornholes don't make your blood boil enough already? How's this for husker class and family values: "Omaha paper: Did you get hassled back home for picking NU? 'There were no tough times. I told them CU is horrible. I didn't like CU. My mom went to CU and everything. I always used to root against CU. That's how I became loving of the Huskers.' " -TE Ryan Hill, A-West grad, traitor to the state of Colorado I don't typically like to make predictions, but I'm unveiling mine for this one. Reverse the painful score of our last one, and unleash the glory of a victory over our hated rivals... and momentum for runs in 2008 & 09 to remember.
