Cornhusker comments Compiled by Randy York Tom Sorley, NU captain On the coaching staff: "Our coaching staff Is so great about making the right kind of adjustments Sooner or later, they're going to figure it out. Today, they changed our blocking scheme at halftime and told us we should dominate the inside. I think you'd have to say we did. How many total yards did we get today? Over 600? That's awesome. I like that word. I hope we keep using it more ana more." George Andrews, NU captain On the Husker defense: "Colorado is no offensive slouch. Effort makes things happen for us. Gang tackling is everyone hustling for the boll. You saw that from us today and I hope you see It every week we play." ' Richard Berns, l-back On the Colorado linx: "I hate to say this, but I think Colorado gave up on us today. They lost their aggressiveness when the momentum went against them. You could feel the psychological edge we have over them." Tom Osborne, Nebraska coach On Richard Berns: "Football players are like everyone else. Some days are better than others. Richard Berns hod one of his best for us today. He's an unselfish team player and I'm glad to see what happened out there for him today." Mike Corgan, offensive backfield coach On Berns: "Richard looked like the best on the field today. He was really reading and making o lot of yards in traffic after contact. He was setting the iob done and that's the policy we try to live by." n , Junior Miller, tight end On his 42-yard touchdown pass: "it was an iso pass 09ain, lust like I scored on last week. I hobbled it and almost lost It." On his two-point conversion catch giving Nebraska 14-14 halftime tie- It was to me all the way. I heard the corner tell the defensive end to hold me up and all I could think about was making sure I got off the line of scrimmage."
