If Armstrong JR doesn't chuck bombs under pressure which are slightly more effective than punting on first down....And if Poopoocheese doesn't coach the D

There should be big chips on the players' shoulders. When a well liked coach leaves the team usually performs well in support. USC also doesn't play hard the whole game. They are beatable.

I just don't have confidence that the coaches will have this team prepared well enough to play to this team's full potential. They teach these kids to think and not react. Always a step behind. Also evidenced by a lack of playing using basic fundamentals. Also because TA can't hit the broadside of a barn.

They lack execution and motivation. The coaches don't know how to make half time adjustments and they will not pull the starters no matter how bad they are doing.

USC demonstrated a lot of team speed versus Notre Dame. McNeese State players noted the Huskers' lack of speed.

Too many distractions on the NU side to stay focused on USC.

I'd have voted this way whether Coach Pelini was gone or not - based on what I saw this year, I just don't think this team hangs with USC, especially as this is virtually a home game for the opponent, Hopefully Ameer is healthy, and Randy, but we'll see.

Not to be a negative Nellie, but i just don't think they will hang with USC for more than a qtr (maybe)..Not a lot of motivation for this one i dont believe.....Ill watch, but, not expecting much. GBR!

First off it is USC at home. Second, although I believe there is enough motivation for the players, they are still smarting from the change. I suspect that they will put up a fight at first and then when things get real tough, they will fold as their heart probably isn't there.

We have a talent deficit, a coaching deficit, and a lack of motivation on players parts because of all the upheaval.

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.

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?

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.
