Good people as coaches. The line depleted, now is in the hands of a great upcoming coach. Linebackers and d-backs are in good hands.

I like their chances but it may take a few games with a young d-line. I wish the veterans would have stuck around 1 more year. Our young d-line improvement is the key i believe.

I don't think that it will happen this year. I think this year will be terrible. However I think 2017s defense could be pretty good. I feel better about the direction of the defense than the ofense.

I feel they were almost there last year and now with Parella, the package will be complete.

Yes they have a ton of young talent and great coaches, especially John Parela! I'm actually very excited to see the finished product out on the field! GBR!!!

To me, the 'D' coordinator is still a question mark. 'D' line is a question mark. Although I like John Parrella's chances of bringing them around.

Same defensive staff, different day. Same pass defense, 115 this year????

I'm not sure Mr Banker can coach a successful pass defense.

Likely improvement in the DBs negated by weaker defensive line.

Did not see enough development last season to give me any meaningful reason to suggest that what is returning on the defensive side of the ball will be anywhere near what will be needed for a winning season.

Not this year with the lack of depth and meaningful experience on the defensive line. it all starts there. We're going in the right direction though.

Not sure. This year will tell a lot. I was hoping it was a aggressive defense, but I didn't see it last year. Only Nate Gerry at the end of the year got aggressive. No excuses this year, players know the defense, so now we will find out/

The D coordinator has NEVER had a top D so why would we expect one now - especially when the D line is so young?

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.

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.
