That game actually exposed Nebraska for the husk of a team they once were. They had been ranked based on their glorious past not their current talent. That game showed just how much of a decline they were in.

While it made him a higher draft pick it has certainly not helped. People saw that game or saw the stats didn't realize how much Nebraska was starting to suck and their fan expectations went through the roof! Hard for that kid to live up to the hype.
