Nebraska Cornhuskers Trash-Talk Georgia Bulldogs, SEC Following Bowl Loss


Nebraska Cornhuskers quarterback Taylor Marinez failed to lead his team to a victory in the Capital One Bowl against the Georgia Bulldogs on New Year’s Day, but that hasn’t stopped the signal-caller from trash-talking his opponents and the conference that they play in.

That’s right. Martinez, who’s Cornhuskers fell to the Bulldogs 45-31, continued his trash-talk after the game.

Before the game, Martinez said the Georgia defense was “just another typical Big Ten defense,” and he has is still yapping now that he has faced the Bulldogs defensive unit.

“I think the Big Ten, talent-wise, is a lot better, and the defenses in the Big Ten are better than SEC defenses,” Martinez said, per the Lincoln Journal-Star. “This was supposed to be one of the top defenses in the SEC, and we pretty much did anything we wanted against them.”

It wasn’t just Martinez that decided to take some shots at the SEC and Georgia. Nebraska running back Ameer Abdullah told the Omaha World-Herald that he doesn’t see anything special from the SEC’s top teams.

“I don’t care if it’s ‘Bama, I don’t care if it’s Notre Dame. Georgia was nothing special. We came out, we had ‘em tied. We just didn’t finish. I feel like we’re a better ballclub than those guys. You saw that early. We just didn’t finish,” Abdullah said.

“We knew they were gonna come out lively and talking. But if you hit ‘em in the mouth a couple good times, they were gonna lay down. And that’s what we did. We just didn’t finish.”

The Cornhuskers players can say whatever they choose to say, but it is silly for a team that was handled to talk trash about the team that beat them just a day ago. There is a reason the SEC has been so dominant in college football over the past decade, and it isn’t because the Big Ten has more talent.

    i can not believe you have the balls to bad mouth a team WHO KICKED YOUR ASS….didnt finish ?…..thats called L O S I N G !…..thats all that matters…..not your sourgrapes…SEC….equals WINNERS…….NOT WHINNERS

  • Kramer Taylor

    Nebraska, shut up, you lost by 2 touchdowns, you are not relevant and any SEC and let me be clear, any SEC would love to have you on our schedule……..Ive seen better defenses against those directional schools, you know your defense that got 70 hung on them in the Little Ten Championship.

  • Kramer Taylor

    Anyone worth a crap beat you this year…….go away…..sorry losers

    Nebraska’s coach kept insisting that they were the better team after the SC Gamecocks handled them in the Capitol One Bowl last year!

  • David Bennett

    But they didn’t “lay Down” and they didn’t quit, and they DID FINISH! So I would have to say that that above all makes them the better team. Sad when you can’t except the fact that you ended up getting your butts handed to you when it counted. Not at half, at the final whistle. Poor losers make Nebraska look even worse than they did in the 4th quarter. Sad. Go DAWGS!!

  • Kramer Taylor

    Exactly David, Im an Alabama Grad and watched you guys kick their butt….thanks for that

  • Andy

    Do anything you wanted against them huh? Didn’t see many pass-plays from Nebraska nor did I see a great defense against those big pass plays either. I’m not gonna talk a ton of trash on the team because they played very well against UGA and exploited a weak-point with the run defense, but as the score shows YOU LOST. If Nebraska was such a better team they would have won the game. Go ahead and be a sore loser. At least we have more to be proud of in GA than shucking corn! GO DAWGS!

    Just unsportsmanlike. All opinions are welcome but why trash someone who closed out strong? Sure two other SEC teams didn’t play up to their games but doesn’t make the SEC any less dominant!

  • http://www.davidsmusings.com/ David

    I guess a 2 touchdown loss is a moral victory in Nebraska these days. lol

    Man we could have sent auburn in there an kicked Nebraska’s ass the big 10 don’t have nothing on the sec

      let’s not get carried away now – lol . War Eagle!

  • Kramer Taylor

    Lost 30-13 last year to South Carolina, 45-31 to UGA this year, I say Nebraska is about 4 touchdowns and field goal from “Closing it”…….that’s 0-2 in the last 2 years…..shut up

  • http://www.facebook.com/lenna.watts Lenna Watts

    Haha Nebraska is a bunch of sore losers I do believe they cried like babies last year too. Unclassy guys, your not only reflecting yourselves but your whole school.

  • http://www.facebook.com/brett.sellers.31 Brett Sellers

    Well if this was a crap talking competition Nebraska might have had a chance, but it’s football and they got it handed to them

  • http://www.facebook.com/stuart.l.crosby Stuart L. Crosby

    UGA defense allowed 18 points, the Neb kicker scored seven and the Murray interception led to the other six. Georgia didn’t play great defensively in the first half but they made the plays in the second half and scored (insert drumroll here) 22 points in a row.
    Also Nebraska pass defense was supposed to be the tops in FBS. AM hit them in the mouth, the stomach and the private parts for over 400 yards and five touchdowns and almost had another if TK had not dropped that last ball (that guy did a lot of good this year).
    I was never a big Nebraska fan growing up. I doubt that has changed very much.

  • Jam Red

    HEY HUSKERS, let me just say…YOU LOST TO THE SEC AGAIN…nuff said girls, maybe next year you can sit at home and watch like you should have this year…or better than that, play Northern IL and lose to them….hahaha

    You did anything you wanted against them… besides, you know, win.

  • Regina Harrison

    Nothing wrong with shucking corn, but trash talking is for sore losers. Apparently Nebraska doesn’t have any memory of their last slaughter, um I mean game, against unranked Wisconsin. I believe Wisconsin won 70-31! Go Clemson Tigers!!!

  • Jeff

    Maybe they should have wanted to do more against UGA, since they lost by 2 TDs. Here’s a thought, less talk, more rock – talking trash after losing is just silly. You will notice that UGA didn’t say anything towards Nebraska…. they didn’t have to. The scoreboard was still lit.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mike.bagwell.399 Mike Bagwell

    You got beat like an old rag doll and you’re still talking trash. “We could have done anything we wanted”? I guess you didn’t want to score 46? You’re a sore loser. With all the practice you’ve had with the corn shuckers losing, I would have thought you would be a better loser by now. I guess that means you’re slow, too.

  • Steve

    He obviously grew up in an Upwards environment, where they don’t keep score. Score doesn’t matter if being outscored in a game where you keep score is the basis for who wins the game. Charlie Sheen #Winning, Nebraska #Losing!

  • Guest

    Geeeeez You Stupid Morons “didn’t finish” cuz your teams are NOT as talented, or have the talent up and down your ENTIRE Roster! SEC backups would be All-Conference in the Big 10

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000481724537 Eric Hawkins

    well…Alli-Baba…or whatever…you didn’t finish? Well, Georgia DID finish and that makes them the better ball team…YOU JACKWAGON!!!

  • http://twitter.com/niveKnosnhoJ Kevin Johnson

    It’s a shame two individuals spoke out like idiots. Nebraska is a very respectable university – an institution that gives a standing ovation post-game to the opponents, win or lose. If you’ve ever noticed, the SEC has minimal smack talk before or after a game. The teams play like men, win like men, and lose like men. It humors me to watch Tay-Tay and Paula Abdullah lose like little 5 year old pricks who fell off their bikes and scraped their knees.

    Paula – “We didn’t finish, but we’re better” … that’s like Lance Armstrong stopping halfway through the Tour De France and claiming he’s better than everyone else.
    Tay-Tay – You have a woman’s throwing motion. Because you have a woman’s throwing motion and are complaining like a woman, you should be treated like a woman. Go make me a sandwich.

    How classless that a team that got beaten to come back a day later and talk trash…unbelievable, Speaks to the Coaches lack of control in my world. Come back down Huskers we’ll spank that ass again!

  • taterspaw@gmail.com

    LOL…they do recognize they play in big ten right? Nebraska moved from pop Warner big 12 to at best jv big 10…face it sec is the cream of the crop, now go get ready for the arena or cfl Taylor Martinez cause your scrubby arse wont be in the NFL

  • Joe_HTH

    LOL! UGA’s defense is very good at pass defense, very good at putting pressure on the QB, and very good at creating turnovers. However, our defense has not been good at stopping the run.

    The SEC finishes! Go Cocks!

  • Liberal Soup N Crackers

    The corncobbers … come on. 45-31 is not just a failure to close. It’s a frickn’ LOSS.

    You have to be kidding me… not again? Last year that clown Pelini was spouting off about them being a better team than South Carolina after the Gamecocks completely shut them down in the second half, and now UGA beats them by two touchdowns and they still talk shit. I think they must be attending the Dabo Swinney School of Stupid.

  • http://www.facebook.com/TheSuff Jason Suffoletta

    Pelini did the same thing after getting man handled by the Gamecocks last year too. This is a reflection on their coach. He is a classless buffoon as are his players. That’s why one was throwing punches last year in the bowl game, and no Alshon Jeffrey did not throw a punch. UGA’s D is not outstanding but when you lose by 14 shut up.

    Dude, I’m a Badger fan…Nebraska’s defense is a pathetic Defense, if my team can score over 70 points on you guys (with 5 losses mind you) you have no room to talk about defense. Besides, Nebraska has only been in the Big Ten for two years, you don’t know Big Ten defenses, the “classic” Big Ten defense is dead, it died Bo Shembechler…

    Responding to this article is like fighting a battle of wits with “unarmed opponents”! Go Dawgs!!!!

    Nebraska and those two players for Nebraska, QB and RB should be ashamed for their childish comments. This shows poor sport and shows lack if respect for their school. Nebraska should be embarrased and the program should be fined fined for stupid players like those two. Sec is a great program just like the Big Ten. No need to talk trash especially after getting your tail ends destroyed.

  • http://www.facebook.com/mandy.s.harper Mandy Shrouder Harper

    Well, see here in the ol’ SEC the difference is that we DO finish it! Bring it bra! Y’all have NOTHING on my Dawgs or the SEC!!!!

  • ethanol husker

    What was meant to provide hope to their fan base has been taken out of context by the poorly educated SEC faithfull….

  • http://www.facebook.com/HighTek1911 Mike Williams

    Wow! Isn’t this the same Nebraska team that once fired a coach who was 9-3! Isn’t this the recent Nebraska team that lost their Big 12, I meant, Big 10 Championship and to who??? Wisconsin who went to the Rose Bowl and finished 8-6!!! And what was that video game score beatdown again?! Coming from an Alabama fan and alum, you may have done what you all wanted to do against UGA, but UGA did EVERYTHING they wanted to do to your D…thus a bowl loss! Get over it. Good season, nonetheless, but finish your games and the season would have been a lot better.

  • http://twitter.com/3tsand2ms Terry G. McClinton

    Are these “losers” serious? Let me tell you what a differnce there is Big 10ers…my coach, SABAN, would have NEVER allowed our boys to sound off like a bunch of idiotic sore losers. See ya Monday night..huskers! Roll Tide!
