Nebraska beat KU by 10 in Lincoln, is the order restored?

This isn't quite as popular as the KSU dead program question from last week. I'll take a stab at it --

No.

Not one bit. We played badly and led in the fourth quarter in Lincoln. They may be on the right track, but until they start winning in Lawrence again, it's hard to say the order is restored - by their definition of the phrase...

Perhaps the better question would have been --

Is it now up to KU to stop Nebraska from "restoring the order?"

This is pretty easy. No. An impressive game, but it will take more than one game to slow down Mark Mangino and repair the damage done by Callahan. It ought to be very interesting. A must win game though for KU when Nebraska comes to town.

Like everyone else has said, not at all.

Now, if they beat us down in Lawrence, then maybe there's an argument there. But the past four games, we've split, with both teams protecting their home turf. We've demolished them twice, while they've won two games that, honestly, either team could have won. Especially that 2006 game.

But, as long as we continue to just win at home, then that just proves we are rough equals in football. Just winning one game by 10 points at home does not restore the order.

RC -- Now you just reminded me that NU is the only north team that Mangino doesn't have a road win against. Can't say we've turned the corner against them until we get a win up there -- have to wait until 2010 now and try it out during the post-Todd era.

Fabio -- Yep, it's a big must-win. I should put a countdown clock for 11/14 up, but I guess we shouldn't overlook OU. In fact, I don't even think I'll be overlooking UTEP.

Agreed, no reason to overllok UTEP. Though if we don't win that, we've got bigger problems than I'm hoping...

And yeah, next year is an absolute must-win. If we want to win the north and play for the conference, 5-0 against other north counterparts is a imperative.

I also didn't realize that Nebraska was the only place we hadn't won with Mangino. We've been way too close the last three times there to not have a win. Here's to 2010.
