2700 yards last year makes 3000 seem pretty attainable. I also think that the proposed run first offense paired with an emphasis on play action passes will offer more open targets. Run first offenses win championships!!! Look it up. Ultimately his destiny lies in the hands of the offensive line.

Yes, but they have to use everyone. The backs, receivers, and tight ends.

He may get to 3,$20001 yards but will still only win 5 games this year.

Nearly 2700 yards under a so so quarterback's coach, so 3100 yards w a really good quarterback's coach is very possible.

Tommy throws one of the best deep balls ever...if he can just nail down the short and intermediate passes he has a chance for 3000++++++

For the reasons stated by Athons...He wasn't too far off last year and it isnt that high of a number in this era. He definitely has the talent.

with a caveat. he will need to get much better at short and medium range passes and make better decisions with his check downs. his deep ball is already pretty good. if he does that, and I think he puts in the extra work to do so and with an actual quarterbacks coach helping I think he gets it done.

He's not going to start the entire year.

Not a very good poll question, its not even a certain that he will be a starter. Knowing football and the current college landscape, I would say there is a better than 35% chance he does not start every game

I agree with the first two, he will not be able to stay in the pocket with rush. the BYU and Mimai GAMES WILL BE HIS DOWN FALL IF NOT JUST BYU.

He can't throw a short pass and an out to save his life. He just can't find the open receiver.

Armstrong is nothing more than a bandaid to control the bleeding until Riley gets his players installed

Do you see the Huskers beating the point spread against Oklahoma this weekend?

OU is susceptible to the long passing game. NU pulls out some stops on offense. D keeps it close. OU by 3.

Spencer is a guy who’s easily rattled (get it?) and figures to throw a few picks if pressured. I still think we lose but Huskers can move the ball through the air and force a few TOs to keep this game within 14. Small chance they even pull out the W

I watched the Tulane game and I think Buffalo is a good team that the D shutdown. Plus I went to school in the 90’s and want us so badly to step up on National tv. We are due!! Skers

Sooner's lose one game mid-season. Why not this one. Hopefully no one showed the Sooner team what Frost and company did to them in '96 and '97. We should play well for 3 quarters then their top guys may take over.

It's likely at some point in the game we'll be down a score or two. Does this team have the mental toughness to fight and mount a comeback or will they fold? I just don't think the team has that kind of confidence in themselves yet.

I can’t believe Nebraska fans have fallen so far that they discuss if they can’t beat the spread and not if they can beat OU.

they have talent everywhere. We have a tiny bit of talent. It's a talent landslide.

No way! IL lost big to an unrated Virginia team. Sooners will do whatever they want to do regarding score. Tired of us ‘rebuilding’ when we can’t beat teams that out recruit us every year. Don’t those teams have to rebuild? Simply put we are either terrible recruiters or terrible developers.

Big REd is playing well below the Sooner's level. I just hope they can keep it at the 21 points and not get buried in a ten td avalanche.

They are still playing pretty bad. Offensive line is still not blowing anyone off the ball. Defense is still not getting a pass rush. Secondary is not as good as advertised. Hopefully there will be improvement.

We are not there yet. We put too much pressure on an improving defense. If NU could some how score 40 they might have a chance at the end of the game but....I'll call it 48-27 OU.

Are you concerned about the investigation into the Husker's use of analysts and off-campus workouts?

Lots of teams are doing the exact same thing. Make everyone else accountable before just punishing the Huskers.

It's just a distraction, but it is the last thing we need right now. The timing of this news is extremely suspicious. Focus on taking care of business on the field and this will be ancient history in a month .

Frost is doing everything he can to try to get this program going again. That even means blatantly cheating and trying to cover up his cheating. This isn’t an oopsie, it’s desperation. Same with trying to run away from the OU game. He knows he’s in trouble and he just cost himself his buyout.
