I did not want to be negative. Right now we do not know what it will be like next year. I have hopes,

We will see for sure this year and going forward if his offensive philosophy will work with pro style QB's. This is a wait and see thing. I'm willing to give it a chance.

We need a dual threat q-back who can throw or run to get out of the pocket, I do not want to see a 70% passing game.

Absolutely not, it will not work at nebraska because it is a low populated cold weather state and NO ONE can load up on 5 star talent tat NU to compete with the other schools in the high populated warm weather areas.. We need to be unique again in what we do and have the entire state supporting it.

I prefer the run offense, wear 'em down and win in the 4th quarter. A mobile QB that can pass accurately as well as get out of trouble and run.

I am unsure that the way Riley seems to be going with the offense is the right way. All of the top teams in the country last year had a dual threat QB and that is for a reason: It's hard to defend 11 guys than just 10. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.

We didn't run the ball effectively with players that can run in 2016. We will be pass oriented in 2017. If we don't get more proficient at the run we are going to be hurting. I don't care if you run the ball 50% of the time, it all fails if you can't get yardage with the run. 3rd & long in 2017.

Unless you have talent like USC, you need a QB who can run in college football today.

With our offensive lines of recent years a drop back passing QB will be meat for other teams defenses to eat up

Pro style offenses have been solved. Their success relies heavily on a very high level of nationally coveted talent which makes consistency an issue even for teams that have every recruiting advantage. There are other more college friendly schemes that get better results from less talent.

I have had problems with the consistency of play calling. I will say I probably will like the first couple of years better than what is coming... I like a mobile QB who can throw the ball on the move and run the option. I like to see a QB who can run play action and go deep. Speed and power! GBR

Old, slow and predictable. No misdirection. Averages slightly over two plays a minute - one of the slowest in the country. No one is surprise by what we do.

I could change my mind after it seeing it ran by a true passing qb but from the little we saw of it, it looks like big 10 defenses already know how to shut it down.

Osborne tried a passing offense in 1973 to 1979. Did not work in the plaines.

What Osborne and the 70's have to do with it? LOL

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.

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.
