I think there's a difference between expecting them to win, and not being surprised if they win.
At times, the team has looked good. Lots of energy, improved defense, dynamic quarterback (when healthy).
Michigan has more talent and should win, but they are no juggernaut.
I won't be surprised if Nebraska wins. I won't be jumping off a building if they don't, and I won't be tearing down any goalposts if they pull it off. Mark me down as someone who believes this train is gonna take some time to get moving, but once it does, there will be no mistaking it.
