2008 KU-Nebraska football

Did you see that?

On first-and-10 from the Nebraska 28-yard line, Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing looked to be under fire as he scrambled in the backfield. But the 5-foot-11, 200-pound junior bounced off a defender, took a few steps backward, and fired a touchdown pass to a wide open Kerry Meier down the right sideline.

The game was over when ...

Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh - yes, a defensive tackle - caught a two-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Joe Ganz with 5:58 remaining in the fourth quarter while lined up as an eligible tackle. The score gave the Huskers a 38-28 lead, too much for the Jayhawks to overcome.

Stat of the Game:

Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing was sacked a season-high five times Saturday, as the Jayhawks' offensive line had its worst showing of the season. In addition to being constantly on the run, the lack of protection also might have resulted in an injury. Reesing was limping noticeably in the second half, and after the game was being evaluated by the team's medical staff.

Reesing did not have a great game. He was hurried constantly andhis percentage was under 50%. KU can not win, if he does not hit at least 60% of his passses.Look at Ganz he was almost 80% like most good QBs in the Big XII when they face the vaughted KU pas defense!

Reesing played amazingly well considering that he was almost always under attack after the snap. I pray that he survives the UT and MU games without serious injury. Then he will have a long off-season to recover.
