Those first 8, through September and October...if we aren't at least 6-2 things aren't going according to plan.  That is as easy a first two months as I have seen in a very long time, including OU at home who probably will take a step back with all they've lost and a new staff.

I agree.  The team has the chance to start the season off winning games and gaining confidence.  It has the chance to be what this team really needs right now.  If they can gain confidence that they can and will win games, when we get to the last 4 games, good things could happen.

Funny story - this strength of schedule mirrors 2019 (per Sagarin), which was Frost's best year at Nebraska at 5-7. No six-game losing streaks that year, (like we had in 2018 & 2021).

 

Just like 2019, we face seven bowl teams, who played a previous year's SOS in the 40s and who finished ranked in the 50s (average). Two opponents finished in the top ten each of those previous years. 

 

I see no reason to believe we can't achieve the lofty goal of five wins based on this schedule. How's our APR?

I'm sure there is zero chance I'll get any pushback on this, but those first 9 games look very winnable. :)

 

The question is can they actually win them? There wasn't a game in 2021 which they couldn't/shouldn't have won but they managed to find a way to lose all but NW, a G5 team and an FCS team. Will 2022 be different?

Ohio State actually gets Iowa and Wisconsin the same year??

 

Conveniently both at home I see.  One game early (Wisconsin), in beautiful warm weather. And also receiving a bye week before playing Iowa.  The Big Ten is so nice to them.  It's like they are their prized playoff puppy.  There's no earthly way they could have scheduled 3 straight games against Iowa, Wisconsin, Michigan...  No way.  That would be a deliberately brutal thing to do to anyone.  It's Ohio State.  Spread those games apart.
