I hope your upset bid is for Wisconsin, because with OSU there is literally no chance.  We will be lucky to lose by less than 20 points to OSU. 

You're quitting already?

BREAKING: When you're one of the lesser teams in the conference, more games on your schedule will be "tougher".   SOLUTION: Be one of the better teams in your conference.

10/24 - Purdue (Lincoln):  Purdue sucks, this will be an easy win. 10/31 - Northwestern (Evanston):  They are going to be horrible 11/7 - Illinois (Lincoln):  Last year was their year, downhill now.

This schedule isn't punishment for anything. It's the same schedule, minus Rutgers, that we had before lawsuits and Frost saying we'd explore all options.   Instead of having it back-loaded

You dont get better getting whalloped 56-7.

 

Nebraska isn't in the same stratosphere as Ohio State, I'd much rather get better by playing teams like Indiana or Michigan State.

I am soo over this mentality. If you want respect, then go effin earn it. If you can't do that, you don't deserve it. How much of an easier schedule do you want? We play in the fricken B1G West division. So big deal, we got the toughest possible schedule we could've this season. I say good, bring it. We'll either turn the corner or it will just be another of 20 years where we piss and moan again.

 

This season already has a big ole asterisk on it no matter what happens. We win em all and Covid is to blame. We lose em all and it's just that we still suck. Nothing to lose and everything to gain, with the best possible matchups for us fans to watch along the way. Finishing 2nd or 3rd or 4th in the B1G doesn't mean jack sh#t this year. Win some games of substance or shut up.

Perfect!  Just as it should be. The two teams that want to play the most. I’m ready!

Look, Nebraska will only improve by playing teams similar to them and by recruiting better. Building this takes baby steps.

 

I get the mentality of wanting to see where we are, but Ohio State is a team stocked full of NFL talent at nearly every position. Over our last several meetings, forcing Ohio State to even punt was a challenge. There is no growth to be had getting obliterated, they are out of our league. 

 

Every fan, coach, and player knows how this is going to shake out. You don't have to be a football genius to predict what happens when a team full of NFL talent plays a team without it.

Absolutely love this schedule and you know whom else loves this schedule? Frost!!

Got a quote for all you cry babies out there, "if you can't party with the big DAWGS, get off the porch". Moving up baby and I'm lovin the fear it's creating!!

 

Husker!

Power!

Husker!

Power!

Yep. I was a little struck seeing the schedule but then was like OK bring it.  This is a weird season.  Let’s see what we can do.  Make some noise.  The opportunities to upset some programs ahead of us is ripe for the taking!   #DayByDay

I tend to lean this way.  We need wind to build confidence. 
 

I also think that the best chance to bear OSU is having them in the first game. There is always that little chance that they show up unmotivated and we do.

Yeah, agreed!

 

I suppose you could argue that NU is in a decent position for this game because there can be a few positives.

 

Obviously they win and it is a huge positive.

Also, they could lose close, 35-34 or something, that is a big positive

Or they could hold OSU to say, 17 points, that is a positive.

 

The only real negative is some 42-10 a$$ kicking.

Ease of use not a top priority for this site.  Want people to wade through page after page of posts to find the schedule instead of it being a post all by itself.   

 

 

I mean... the schedule’s gonna be posted on the front page in the area reserved for the schedule.

People are weird. When it’s us we worry about being rusty in game 1 and getting upset by some pansy*. When it’s OSU they are some invincible NFL team we have a less than zero % chance of beating and there is no possible way they could be rusty. 
 

 

*And I’m talking way back - obviously now that we’re a 4-8 team it’s a legitimate concern since we also suck, but we’ve always been like this.

You think we can hold them to 42-10? Sunshine pumper alert!

 

I really don't think there's anything to lose because if they win they're supposed to but I still see that as a beat down.  They'll be out for blood trying to state their case for the playoff with less games played.

 

2-2 out of that first four would be a huge step forward, 1-3 will be expected by everyone and NW always plays tough.  Just don't start 0-4 is my motto.

That's not the worst case scenario. In fact that's better than the average scenario.

 

2016:  62 - 3

2017:  56-14

2018:  36-31

2019:  48-7

 

Average: 50.5 - 13.75

Illini fans on their board, still so weird that there are college football fans that seem upset that college football is back.

 

What about Nebraska? For all the complaining they did, they go to Columbus Week 1 and host Wisconsin Week 2.

Illini Fan reply:  Sorta hoping NEB goes 0-9.

So what I am saying is 48-7, NU takes nothing positive away.

 

36-31...Uh oh BONER ALERT
