Burn the Boats?

In 1994, the Huskers used the motto "Unfinished Business" to set the mood for the season. For those that don't remember, the 1993 Husker team went 11-1, losing to Florida State in the Orange Bowl as they gave up a 16-15 lead with 1:16 left in the game and missed a 45-yard field goal as time expired. Despite losing QB's to blood clots and collapsed lungs during the season, they went 13-0 and claimed Tom Osborne's first national title.

So now Bill Callahan has declared a motto for 2005: "Burn the Boats".

Nice thought, but when it has to be explained, it's probably a poor motto. And let's face it, if "Billy C and the Puppetmasters" put another 5-6 on the board in 2005, the flames won't be limited to a boat...
