Behind enemy lines

What those in the opposing locker room said:

Defensive end Chase Winovich: "It just seemed like they really didn't want to be out there at some points."

Safety Josh Metellus: “After the first series, when we went back out there, we just knew they wanted to give up. You could just see it in their eyes. It's not anything I can really put into words (but) you could tell by the way a receiver is running his route, or the way you get blocked or the type of passion they're playing with. We just sensed they didn't have it so we used it to our advantage.”

Running back Karan Higdon: "It was great, we came out fast and strong. We jumped on them quick. We made a statement today."

Linebacker Devin Bush: (On Frost's comments while at UCF) "We really took that to heart, and, we wanted to make a statement."

Scanning the wires

What other media outlets are saying:

This was an absolute annihilation. This was a total mess — for Nebraska. This was a Frosty melting on the sideline. Michigan dominated the line of scrimmage, dominated on defense and simply demolished the Huskers. Overall, it was a tremendous performance by the Wolverines. They made a big statement to open Big Ten play and took a huge step forward, especially the offensive line. Clearly, this was not your father’s Nebraska, which couldn't have played much worse. Michigan looked faster, stronger and simply better than the Huskers all across the field. Even Michigan's backups dominated. “This could get worse before it gets better,” Nebraska coach Scott Frost, talking about the culture change going on within his program, told Sports Illustrated days before the game. By that, I think he meant, muffing a punt. Or, maybe, roughing a punt returner.

What the fans and others are saying on Twitter:

Wendy's (@Wendy's): Might need a Scott Frosty to ice down the beating Nebraska is taking. #FreshFanReaction

Scott Alan Johnson (@ScotAlanJohnson): Sooner or later, the light coming our way will be the end of the tunnel, not another train. #GBR#Huskers

Kyle Smathers (@Kes8514): I wish these type of losses stung a bit more, but they don’t. That was the worst game I’ve ever watched Nebraska play. Out coached, horrible players, embarrassing effort. #Huskers#Nebraska

Brock Minert (@brockminert): Did you know you can be frustrated with this season yet still be hopeful for the future of the program? #Huskers

Scott Dochterman (@ScottDochterman): Since joining the Big Ten in 2011, Nebraska has given up at least 50 points to 10 different B1G foes. Only Indiana (11) has given up more. Northwestern & Michigan have not given up 50 to any B1G teams while OSU, MSU, Wisconsin, Iowa & Minn have allowed 50 to a B1G foe just once.

Blake Johnson (@blakej1983): Even though my #Huskers got beat I’m still a Husker fan and will always be a Husker fan. I’m never going to say that Nebraska is going to get beat. Got to stay positive even in low times. #GBR
