Barry Collier can always be counted on to fill a reporter's notebook with colorful comments and memorable metaphors:
"We feel like we have been dragged through a knothole," the sixth-year Nebraska coach said after one narrow loss.
"Trying to win on the road in the Big 12 is like trying to lick your elbow," he said after another. "It's tough."
After a ho-hum 14-14 season for the Cornhuskers in 2004-05, however, the most meaningful quote of the year in Lincoln wasn't from Collier.
