Enunwa staying positive

While doom and gloom seem to be settling in over Lincoln, Quincy Enunwa, as a team captain, can't pay any attention to it.

LINCOLN, Neb. - On Saturday Nebraska senior wide receiver Quincy Enunwa played one of the worst games of his career. He wasn't the only one.

While doom and gloom seem to be settling in over Lincoln, Enunwa, as a team captain, can't pay any attention to it.

"The biggest thing is just everything that we want is still out there," said Enunwa. "We have the same record we did last year at this time and we shouldn't get down on ourselves just from a loss. We can still do everything that we want to accomplish this year."

But how can the Huskers get that done?

"We just have to make sure we learn from our mistakes. Last year, we came back 5-2, we won the rest of our games and got to the Big Ten Championship Game. There's no reason we can't do that again this year," said Enunwa. "Don't think that just because we lost the game that all of a sudden the season is over. Minnesota played their hearts out. They played a great game against us. There was just too many mistakes on our side and obviously when you don't play a good game, you lose. We just need to learn from our mistakes and come back next week with a better attitude.

"We have some warriors on our team and we have a great coaching staff. We've been through this before. Obviously, we have a lot of young players, but they've also experienced some of the same things that us seniors have experienced as well. There's no reason for us to think that we can't do everything we want to do this year. We know how good of a team we are and we know how bad of a game we played. If we went out there and just played the greatest game ever and lost then it would be a different story, but we didn't play very well. We know we can play better than that."
