In the current climate of college football all you can ask for is a chance to earn your spot at the table.
Look at schools like Baylor and Ohio State ...who could potentially finish undefeated ...and still not play for a national championship
The Huskers had their chance to earn a date with the Buckeyes
But it appears the Spartans ...will be rounding out the party of two
Now that a Big Ten Championship is out of the question
Inquiries about Bo Pelini's job security
Will be the hot topic in coming weeks
So, does the 6th year coach feel any added pressure to end the season on a high note?
"I always feel, at the end of the day, my job is to win football games. That's my approach, I'm not changing my approach. Regardless of what situation we are in I don't change my approach and how I do my job."
"Well, I feel like as a team we are a pretty prideful bunch. We want to win, we want to get the bad taste of a loss out of our mouth as bad as the next man. We are going to do everything we can this week to assure we do that."
"I think it's just frustrating that we had the opportunities, and we didn't take advantage of them, but now it's up to myself and the rest of the seniors, like I said, to make sure that we finish out the season the right way."
