Illinois absolutely humiliated Scott Frost and Nebraska to start the season.

Despite the fact that the Cornhuskers entered the game as heavy favorites, the Fighting Illini were up 30-9 at one point! (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Yes, Nebraska was losing to Illinois by 21! Imagine hearing that 20 years and thinking it was real.

Eventually, the clock hit zero and Nebraska lost 30-22. To say it was embarrassing might be the understatement of the year.

I seriously don’t understand what the hell is going on in Lincoln. We’re talking about one of the most prestigious programs in football history.

Yet, they can’t even beat Bret Bielema in his debut at Illinois! What is going on? Seriously, does anyone know?

As usual, we were all led to believe this season would be different for the Cornhuskers. We were all led to believe that this year would be the year things changed for Frost and company.

Yet, it’s just the status quo as always!

Prayers out to everyone in Lincoln. You guys are going to need them in order to survive another year with Frost in charge.

P.S.: I completely set aside my feud with Bret Bielema during this game because I was simply too stunned by what I was seeing on the field. What a wild time to be alive!
