Updates. With AP Photos. By ERIC OLSON AP Sports Writer Bo Pelini still felt awful Monday, two days after Nebraska's defensive meltdown at UCLA. ''I've been sick to my stomach since that game,'' Nebraska's coach said. ''I felt we should have won that football game. We didn't, and it hurts. It's hard to live with.

College Football Week 2: Notes, Observations, and Jokes

  Week 2 was a perfect example of why putting out a poll before the season is a joke.  What did we see?    Well, we saw a "Top-10" team fall to an hyphenated team...at home.  My take is that Arkansas was over-rated.  John L.
