Winning the Big Ten West is NOT an impressive goal. However, this just shows how far the program has fallen. I know that we can win with our talent but the chemistry and strategy has to be such that it utilizes the talents they have to the max. This poll shows our low expectations for the program

I voted for this side because they do have all the pieces in play to win the west. They have gotten better in every area with young very athletic players in every group. Plus the addition of John Parrela, will guide the Black Shirts in dominating offenses this year!

We out-talent our peers by a fair margin. It comes down to coaching.

There are pieces on both offence and defense that can be better than last year. The coaches and players are communicating with each other at another improved level as well. And...I'm an optimist.

I think the talent is there, but is the maturity?

They had the pieces last year, just the coaches pissed it down their legs.

We usually have a good team but it will depend on the coaching

We have the offense to do this but need out defense to step up to the plate and produce on a more consistent basis.

We could have won it last year except for player/coach issues and poor clock management.

They have had the talent to win the West division for the last few years, now maybe they can since they now have the right coaching staff in place.

Things look to be headed in the right direction but after last years disaster I think they are a year away.

We need to see much improvement in the coaching. There is a reason the coach has never won a conference championship.

I think the talent and coaching is there and set up for success but I feel it's going to be another year or two before we start seeing great success.

The coaches don't know how to run an offense that utilizes the current tallent. Without dedication to a run game that involves a heavy dose of option and the use of o-line depth I fear this team will struggle. I'm hearing the same spring talk I did last year and expect to see the same offense.

The offense doesn't need to be an option based offense.

Until they get a consistent QB in place, great O-line all the way across, and decent D-line then forget it. I guess that's about 70% of the team.

Possible, but unlikely. Our recruiting rank in the Big 10, 2012-2015, averages fifth. Our coaching staff is a good one, but probably ranks fourth, behind OH, MI and MS. Winning the Division with this combination would require over-achieving. I sure hope we do it!

When they replace Tommy Armstrong with a real Big 10 QB they will have a chance to compete.

The play calling needs to be way better. They need to play to their strengths, take the decisions out of the equation for the qb. Pass defense better get a LOT Better.

Yes and no. Good enough for a surprise breakthrough, but not likely. I'll stick with others: 3rd, maybe 2nd.

The coaching staff does not have me convinced it knows how to handle ball in the Big 10. It was a very poor hire with promises of better days, not impressed at all yet.

Playcalling was great. They played to the team's strength last year, which sadly was the passing game. This year's approach seems to be more run oriented with a true back emerging.

I struggled with this decision. We have talent, but that hasn't been our problem recently. Execution, special teams and the O-line have been our Achille's heal (in that order). If we can improve in 2 of these areas, it should be enough to get us 7 wins.

I think our offense will score a lot more points than last year and the defense will shut more teams down on 3rd downs.

I think we may have to win one of the last four tough games to be bowl eligible.

Tough teams on the schedule, and Scott has not proven his coaching abilities as of yet.

Give him time to see if he can figure out a winning formula here. It's not like anyone else has been successful. Not much to lose. It's too bad there has been so little success. I think Husker fans would be overly supportive of the program especially with some improvement.

Let's face it. With a few rare exceptions, Husker basketball has never been better than mediocre at best. Let's give Fred plenty of runway to turn things around. We certainly don't have much to lose (pun not intended).
