Three quick takes by World-Herald columnist Tom Shatel on Nebraska's overtime loss to Miami on Saturday:

Tommy shines through the pain

Tommy Armstrong has the heart of a lion. He was fitting himself for a legacy win here, with a comeback for the ages. His interception showed there’s still work to be done, but through three games, nobody has impressed more than Armstrong. What’s he got for us next?

Lewis penalty costs Huskers

I’m not saying you strip Alex Lewis of his captain’s title, because he could have done other things to earn it. But, wow, that’s a brutal penalty in overtime. The coaches can do all they want, but the other captains, the teammates, need to police this one.

'Cane crowd mostly subdued

I wasn’t sure what to expect, but it’s hard to describe how tame the atmosphere was at this game. Maybe it’s Miami, or maybe they don’t like their coach, but ’Canes fans seemed uninterested. I know the Orange Bowl is gone, but, wow, this was anything but intimidating. Which made Nebraska’s early performance all the worse.
