(AP) -- Nebraska keeps finding new ways to lose, and now the Cornhuskers are off to their worst start in more than a half-century.
First-year coach Mike Riley and offensive coordinator Danny Langsdorf are taking the brunt of criticism from fans and media after Saturday's 14-13 loss at Illinois. The reaction was triggered following mismanagement of the game clock on the final offensive series that allowed Illinois - with no timeouts - enough time to drive 72 yards for the winning touchdown with 10 seconds left.
Judging by social media and radio shows, this outcome hit a higher mark on the frustration meter than either the Hail Mary loss to BYU or the overtime loss at Miami. A headline in the Omaha World-Herald on Sunday read: "Tick, tick, tick, times up: Honeymoon is over."
