As a big fan of my huskers, I was wondering what other folks are thinking about them this coming season. They seem to be getting a lot of love in the pre-season polls, with some even having them in the top five. I think that that is a bit high, but what do you guys think?

Are you a huge Huskers fan? Have you heard of Chris Ybarra by chance?

I just googled him, and if he is the same as the fellow you are talking about, he is an artist from the southwest. What does he have to do with the Huskers?

Okay, it's not him. He was a big time recruit for UN back in the day (early 1990s) who blew out his knee. He is currently a good friend of mine. Just seeing if he rang any bells.

I think top 5 may be ambitious, but their program is definitely moving in the right direction

I really can't stand nebraska, but can't deny their following - out here in AZ there are local fans that get together and pool money to fund their radio broadcasts which is kind of intense when you think about it

I'd love to catch a game in lincoln as well - just seems like a great environment

As a 'Canes fan I just can't wish them well though.......

For the first time in a long time, coach Pellini has got this program back on track. They lacked O, but still played Texas tough for the Big 12 Championship. I remember commenting shortly after that game that Nebraska will be knocking on the door. The program took a hit when Frank Solich was dismissed, then Callahan took it down.

You still have the south teams to contend with though. Still, Nebraska looks tough in the north and will challenge! Top 5 is kind of a stretch, though. We'll see.

I think they are in great position this year- the offense is a bit of a question as they looked shaky at best last season. I am hoping that the way they looked in the bowl game will carry over into this next season with stronger, more confident quarterback play. The schedule is rather easy this next season, so I would say the Huskers should get to the Big 12 championship game and have a real shot at winning it. In fact I don't see a game on their regular season schedule that they "should" lose!

wow - i just looked at their schedule

they have the good fortune of playing in the BXII North .... however, with that they seriously need to schedule some better opponents out of conference

I think UW will surprise some people this year in their 2nd season under sark and locker coming back as a senior so playing them on the road is tough

hosting TX is a good quality game

stillman is always tough

other than that not a lot of meat there - Idaho, SDSt., WKU - how does KSt project this year?

If they do worse than 9-3 it will be shocking and I have trouble even finding 3 losses.........

Texas, A&M, and UW.

They lost to ISU at home last year. The losses are there.

I think 9-3 would be spot on. Maybe 8-4.
