Thoughts after 1st quarter Nebraska, MSU Saturday
- MSU quarterback Connor Cook looked a bit uncertain on the Spartans' first couple of possessions. It was kind of a weird play, and out of character, for Cook to picked off on a tipped ball like that. It seemed like the pass over the middle to Josiah Price for a first down, opened up the Nebraska defense a bit. Tony Lippett continued his terrific senior with another big TD catch. He is on pace for more than 1,000 yards receiving. Wouldn't surprise me if he gets it.
- The motion penalty on Nebraska guard Jake Cotton, in which he literally fell on his rear end while awaiting the snap, was one of the most bizarre things I have ever seen in a football game at any level. What was the guy doing, a plunge for an ice tea commercial?
