Serious Questions about the season Opener


Recommended Posts

I have drunk the kool aid for the last 20 years.  Swallowed gallons of it last year.  Are they better, who knows?  No one.  Prove it on the field

 

As stated I made these plans before the season was reestablished. Not changing plans for what I feel will be another rout. 

 

I will check in after the game and see where we are at.  Hopefully he has turned it around, but thinking other programs do not improve at the same rate or faster rate than this team is what got us here in the first place.  

 

I hate doing this, but I will make you a bet.  Ohio State wins by three touch downs.  If they don't I will stay off the board for six months.  If they do Sker you stay off for a month.  Put you money where your mouth is.

Staying off the board is "putting your money where your mouth is?".....

Nebraska has a lot more room to improve than other teams though. For example, a 13-1 team that lost to the national champions has much less room to improve than a team that went 5-7. Obviously they can improve to champion level, but that only makes them a bit better than last year. Nebraska could improve to say west champion level which would make the game more competitive. So, even if other teams improve nebraska could still close the gap especially with their talent level.

We will see a week from now I guess.  No one hope's I am wrong more than me.  

 

Next Saturday I have a 33 mile mountain bike ride in one of the most beautiful places on earth, I am going to enjoy it and not even concern myself with football.  Pretty sure I won't have internet access until Monday.  I will come back and eat crow, and happily do so.  

 

But if past history is an indicator of how much improvement we make, I doubt many are going to be happy a week from Sunday.

Actually, If we lose next week...even by a lot.....it’s not going to affect me much. It would have no indication on how the rest of the year goes.

So in other words, you are tired of the losing, expect them and have moved on already.  We're saying the same thing.  

 

Will it destroy my day, not a chance, as it used to.  Will I be sad about the loss, of course, but Nebraska football does not mean the same things it used to.  And as others have said I am hoping Coach Frost returns us to being respectable.  I have never expected championships or wins.  Just to be competitive in every game.  I know Osborne wasn't in every game, but we did expect that.

Pretty certain our defense takes a step forward...so I'm not expecting a blow out.

 

It's the offense I'm worried about most...but the best part about that is the offensive line has another year of experience behind them...so I expect them to be improved.  Hopefully, that gives Martinez time to find young receivers.  If we get even one of them stepping up and our run game works like it did against Wisconsin last year...we'll be competitive.

 

That's what I expect.

Alert, non Nebraska football related.  

After watch the video I am far more concerned about this.  Crazy stuff happens in Utah and Arizona.  Camping there for four days.  Headed out Thursday morning.  Trying to grow eyes in the back of my head!!!!!!

If it makes you feel better the odds you run into a cougar are next to none. I've lived in Montana and Wyoming my entire life and camp a ton and I think I've seen two off in the distance. Also, this cougar isn't stalking that guy it's likely a mother trying to scare him away from her babies hidden somewhere. If a cougar is stalking you, you'll never even know until it's too late.
